  1. I do that with my two cards. Pay the balances before the relevant date - no interest.
  2. There was also Elvington in East Yorkshire as a Shuttle alternative as it has a 2 mile runway. It is home to the Yorkshire Air Museum and hosts various speed record attempts
  3. Apart from wine we always brought back tins of confit du Canard. 5 large legs to a tin packed in goose fat. When one looked at price of jars of goose fat in the UK the quantity in the tin meant that the duck was free.
  4. We were borne in Hull so we {Wife 1] used the voyage from the start in an A40Farina. There were about 8 cabins above deck and the rest were beneath the car deck. I occasionally wondered if the ships were single skinned as one could here the lapping of the water against the hull.
  5. Very interesting. The first two pictures brought to mind the bar and dance floor of Pont Aven !!!!
  6. Millsy. You could not have put it better
  7. Apparently the bombers put it on the wrong lorry which did not leave the lorry park in Lurgan according to the Times. A paper that is, usually, more accurate than some.
  8. Thanks for the replies. I will stick with Jim's suggestion. In fact the current offer falls just right for my 80th birthday.
  9. If I wished to have short break on the Island which Ferry company should I use or should I not bother ? We would travel from the Midlands.
  10. Are any of these starting at PIP or are they all just calling ?
  11. Great video. Answers all the questions about how they do the lengthening of a ship.
  12. That trip would certainly be of interest to us if it ever happens.
  13. We dined twice in Le Flora [Pont Aven] on the Xmas Trip with excellent food and service etc. Main courses of Duck and Pulled lamb in a rice concoction. I had a rack of lamb in the Self Service with which I was very happy. The wife had a disappointing roast chicken.
