Poorly spelt drivel. Noone's interested ...
Noone's? As I said, irony is lost on you.
As well as 'irony', 'hypocricy' is another word that springs to mind, LA.
Priceless! Actually, 'hypocrisy' is the word that didn't spring to mind. D'oh!
OK Evo. Got you. Understood. So anyone that complains about a troll perpetually breaking the rules with posts that have NOTHING to do with cars are trolls. Right. That's fair.
Our school closed for holidays on May 14. We had been planning how to spend the vacation this time. There were many proposals.
My parents wished to go to our home town, and be with my grandparents for about six weeks or so. My friends had a trekking expedition up their sleeves, while my classmates wanted to go to some hill station on an educational tour for which our class-teacher had also given consent. I wished to avail of all the three proposals.
First, I made my mother and elder sister agree to my going on the tour, with my class and the teacher, as the railway concession was already allowed for such journeys. They requested my father to postpone the programme to visit the grandparents by a week or so. My father readily agreed and decided that if I wished to go for the educational tour, I could join him later. He and my mother agreed to go in the advance party to be joined by my sister and me after my tour.
My friends agreed to go trekking, after my return from both journeys. The three journeys were planned in the following order: Educational tour in May, home town trip in June and trekking in July, when the monsoon reaches this part of the country.
My class-teacher had arranged for the railway concession for thirty-five students and three teachers. We started on May 20, reaching Allahabad late in the evening. Earlier, we had tea and snack at the Kanpur railway platform, since the train stopped there for ten minutes, that being a big railway junction.
We enjoyed our three-day stay in Allahabad very much. There we got our rooms booked in a lodge on Thomas Street. We did boating in the nearby river four times. We went to see different places. We also went to see Anand Bhawan, where Pt. Nehru was born. We returned on May 25, much refreshed and happy.
My father had booked our seats by Indian Airlines for June 2. I, along with my sister, took this flight as already decided, and reached our home town in the afternoon. From there we had to motor down to a small town nearby. We stayed with our grandparents for the whole of June.
Returning in July, we went on the trekking-trip in the hills and covered 20 kilometers in a day. Rock climbing was very strenuous, but we enjoyed & lot.
Thus, I spent my summer vacation very nicely and wisely.

I'm not the one criticising others' grammar, so 'pedantic' could be another word that springs to mind, Jimbob, or whatever your name is.
Obviously holiday reviews upset alex, let's talk about films instead.
Death in Venice is one of my favourites with a fine performance by Dirk Bogarde and a fabulously haunting/uplifting use of the music of Mahler.

Except I was pointing out a city that doesn't have cars nevetheless is plagued by traffic gridlock, parking bay famine, constant engine noise 24/7, pollution, ugly proliferating "street" furniture, the degredation of important buildings from aggressive [water] traffic, and spiralling transport ownership costs.
Environmentalists who talk in ideal terms of car free zones tend not to have alternative transportation proposals - Venice shows us an alternative that is as much a nightmare as a city crammed with cars.

On watching a copy for distributon it is recorded a studio exective lost for words about a film he plainly didn't understand said, "Whoever the composer is, we should put him under contract."
Yikes! Better crow bar a reason for the off forum topic for when the moderator sees it. You write as if you've had a talking to in the past.
You're self-harming again, then again, practice makes perfect.
Jimbob, by trying to play the same cards against LA again, you are making it even more blatant than it already was.
Cor just imagine if some of our bolshie traffic wardens got to Venice they would love it . Get themselves a wetsuit and they could pop up from underwater and slap a ticket on your boat without even being seen .
Apparently Brum has more miles of Canals than Venice but maybe not the same level of panache .

Ha! Yes, their water traffic offers up a load of comedy sketches!

I can believe that ... and we've always been a bit slow in capitalising on any heritage outside London.
