The Boleyn Arms - Wing it Wednesday

image

Welcome to The Boleyn Arms - a West Ham United virtual public house, and a West Ham Institution.

Now in our new home on WHU 606, this is a pleasant hostelry is open for Hammers/Irons to discuss matters relating to football, West Ham United or anything else.

WUMs are barred from this establishment, although friendly fans of other clubs are welcome to come in and enjoy the claret and blue atmosphere.

Please do not deface the pictures of players past and present, that adorn the walls in this establishment (and that includes the one of Jimmy Neighbour, R.I.P.) As with the rest of this site, have fun but please avoid anything racist, sexist, homophobic and any comments that promote negative racial or cultural stereotypes, whether said in jest or not.

Please also bear in mind that users of all ages are on this forum. Therefore please refrain from any content of an adult nature or anything unsuitable for users of all ages.

So come in and join us, as we enjoy another Premier League season and our journey under Messrs. Gold, Sullivan Brady and Norman Wisdom continues onwards and back up where we belong!

In previous opening periods of this thread, originally established on BBC 606 by V8Iron under the title "Let's all sign up to this" on the 17th May 2007, we have now achieved postings totaling 139,539 (BBC 606 total) + 170,920 = 310,459 and counting.

On March 8th 2013 the 250,000 milestone was passed with a post by Woosie. Well done Woosie and all who have contributed to this Hammer's Institution since May 2007 - Well done guys!

On the weekend of 12th/13th April 2014 with the posting of the 35th comment The Boleyn Arms have passed our post total on BBC 606 well done guys V8 would be proud!

Now entering our eighth year, it gives me great pleasure to re-dedicate this plaque. To those who on BBC 606 defended this place through the deadly days of the Spring and Summer of 2007 .... their names will however live on here forever; though some are lost to us now:

    Wombat - It's just you and me, I think. I've never seen it but have read a bit on the Beeb website about it, which left me thinking.......Bruce Forsyth - Generation Game, now that's what I call good TV ;ok

    My Mrs never had any interesting in baking.

    She now watches bake off.

    She now bakes.

    I get cake

    Rav ;ok In the modern lexicon I think that that is what is known as a "win-win situation".

    I had only heard about it, but I hapened to see an episode when I was in the UK in August. I found it quite engaging (much like all those competition/talent shows) but also better (more charming) than them because it isn't nasty or humiliating or designed to let the presenters be sneery. And the contestants seem to be nice too.

    Also, as an exile from the UK in my youth, I have a big culture gap. Which has been (sometimes) a source of regret. Now, as an exile in my dotage, I'm trying to Mind The Gap. ;biggrin

    Also, there's something quite nice about people taking so seriously something which is really not very important in the grand scheme of things, like a sunken sponge.

    It has the feel-good factor, for me.

    And that, right there my friends, is how best to deal with modern life ;ok

    I love baking.

    I love back off.

    Everyone gets a lot of cake during the series.

    My diabetic husband thinks I'm trying to kill him.

    ;biggrin

    I don't actually bake, and I'm indifferent to cake. ;puzzled
  • Mrs G ;ok We should all take our pleasure where we can, whilst listening to our intellect and understanding where those pleasures lie when ranked by importance in terms of "the grand scheme of things".
