  1. Your posts are just what the doctor ordered. Back home now, a little bit of me missing, but it's over. All went well and all of the staff at New Cross that dealt with me were the best, even down to the Anaesthetist, who had me holding an (unused sick hat, that looked like a grey Trilby) to my head whist counting down from ten. I don't know how far I got, thank goodness it's over. Thankyou for your birthday wishes, just got to recover now.x

  3. RR you have a very cavalier outlook to Covid as we all know, but telling people to look after themselves is a bit like Marie Antoinette’s attitude to the peasantry. A surprisingly right wing “!’m alright” philosophy for a Labour voter. To act like ‘Jack-the-Lad’, have a devil may care, disparaging and somewhat aggressive attitude is fine if we’re all the same, but we’re not. Many are older, not as fit as once they were, and highly vulnerable to serious complications should Covid strike. You have good health and long may it continue, but try to have a little more e

  5. Just had a look at this old thread,as a result of someone else mentioning it,and was surprised/annoyed to see someone saying that the Beatles pulled out of the Rainbow Rooms and only played Nottingham at the Odeon later in 1963. As most people in Nottingham who were going to gigs at that time (oldies now!!!) should be aware, the Beatles' first gig in Nottingham was at the Rainbow Rooms (above the Co-op on Parliament Street...It was prior to supporting Orbison and then headlining their own concert at the Odeon, where the tickets had to be paid for in advance and only those l

  8. After giving it a lot of thought I am invigilating the exams again this year. I did check with the school I go to about wearing a mask and they were quite happy for me to do this. Some of the kids are still wearing them as well. There is some sniffling and sneezing among those sitting the exams but it is hay fever season, I have had to use my spray, so hopefully it is nothing catching. It is good to get back to a bit of normality (is that a word) whilst still being careful. I wear a mask in shops (my choice - it’s up to you what you do which is no concern of mine), the cafe we go to we have

Missing the car like crazey but due to health conditions no longer feel safe to drive. So sold car money in the bank. Master and I with app being 3 30 decided to catch 11 45 bus into the city. Thought about dinner and we had called at a French Restrant on Milton st the other day and most impressed so booked res for 1 00pm dinner. Arrived at bus stop with time to spear, well waited and waited for the bus. It ended up 20mins late, then giong into city hit r

  10. The time to worry is when they look through the auriscope and can see straight through the opposite ear! Seriously, my ears have the same problem. A GP once almost twisted my head off trying to see the eardrum. If I fly, I'm in agony...not good for a sparrow! I go deaf just driving over the North Yorkshire Moors. Before I went to teacher training college, I had to undergo a medical examination which included a pretty comprehensive hearing test. The doctor told me I was able to hear sounds outside the normal range of human detection. He said I should have been a dog! L

  11. I like living in a monarchy and think the moaners, groaners and republicans should put up or shut up. All I hear is 'overprivledge', 'undeserving' and other equally vituperative claptrap. Tear down the status quo and replace it with what? a president? "Ooo yes please we can elect one of those", until you can't and finish up with a dictator. How many around the world have made themselves president for life? Imagine Johnson with no muzzle? Corbyn unleashed? Democracy is a delicate beast and easily done away with, we should we careful what we wish for.

  15. Further to the comments up-thread about the great void in space where there's nowt there, there's a thing called the Great attractor in the Virgo & Hydra-Centaurus super-clusters that's pulling everything towards it. It lies about 150 - 250 million light years from the Milky Way, which is it's self being pulled towards it. The boffins have zero idea what the Great Attractor is, but it must have lots & lots & lots of mass. I suspect it could be a super gigantic mega massive black hole. Problem is it lies behind the central bulge of the Milky Way, so the Great Attractor can't be dire

  17. Last week the weather was beautiful, plenty of sun and warm evenings. We bought a gazebo for eating outside ( we face south so we get the sun all day) the gazebo was erected by my husband and 2 friends. We invited them and their wives and 2 in-laws for dinner Sunday night. Around the time when we were getting everything sorted we saw a menacing black cloud and heard the farmers shooting into the clouds because of a threatened storm . As our guests were arriving it looked a bit brighter but as we all sat down( the precise minute) it started to rain quite heavily. It didn’t last long but it had

  22. Pity it's gone so Political... Bring back the good old days when Ireland voted for Italy and vice-versa, nobody in Europe except the UK and Ireland had the first clue what popular music was, and the UK and Ireland only knew because of American influence. I suppose if we can have Israel, which is in Africa or Western Asia depending on your prejudices and Azerbaijan, which is in Asia, we can have Australia, which is dominated by European Immigrants. Pity about the Aussie entry though..I thought it was Elton John on Acid. My oldest daughter loves anything 'Kit

  25. Today I'm mostly playing with my new hearing aids, lordy lord they are sensitive. I can ear my own voice in them, my hair brushing on my collar (must get it cut), keys on the keyboard and mouse making loud clicks etc. And the program that is supposed to alleviate tinnitus actually makes it worse. Not sure of the wisdom having them, now I can't 'sling a deaf un' when asked to do something...

I can get a cold war medal but I'll have to pay for it myself. Mind you I didn't see any action (unless you include the punch-ups in the pubs, lol) or do anything brave, bravest thing I've ever done is answer my wife back...

Six Hills or Durham Ox along with the A46 brings back memories of about early 60s........one night in particular after a night out with Judith from Anstey....missed the last train back to Nottingham...so decided to try and hitch a lift on the A46 just outside Leicester about midnight....... Hadn't gone far when a Police car pulled up and they asked where we were going.........told them Nottingham.........''Hop in we'll take you to the Notts border'''......brilliant Coppers in those days........

  31. You always have to spoil it Red. I agree, we don't need a Monkey Pox thread because it is rarely fatal, not new, quite difficult to catch... but also not especially funny. Naturally, as with most things even remotely related to Covid, your assessment of Gav Reid is way wide of the mark. I have a question for you. If you are so keen on people taking responsibility for their own health, why are you so dismissive of people keeping up their vaccine protection and observing other basic common sense measures? And an observation. Your 'Plumber Mate'

  32. On Sunday we had a car rally in the village. They all met very early and one by one they set off. Our road wasn’t closed off but at the corner were the marshals directing straight up the road. We only live 200 m from the corner and it’s a narrow country road, we have space outside the gates for maybe 6 cars so fans of rallies decided to park their cars outside our gates leaving us very little space to get out. We did manage then put notices no parking and the odd paving brick to stop them. This morning driving out from home I pass a short cut which can be the joy of ralliers, up down dips and

Missing so much in not being near family and friends we have decided that any excuse for a bbq A coffee or just an icecream just to enjoy outside sitting at the side or even inside the pool which will be opened finally tomorrow.

Will always remember a lad in ''Metalwork'' who thought it was funny to drink half his milk..then when the teacher left the room...he topped it up by peeing in it......... However the Teacher returned before he had the chance to put it back in the Crate...........Mr Spiers the teacher was very strict about us drinking our milk.................and yes the Lad drank it.......lol Still see him now and again....but he don't like talking about it...

  38. There have been a few editions of the Evening Post added to the news archives . This is a picture of her , that I haven't seen elsewhere . There are a few more pics in these later editions that I will try and post when I get chance . This picture from 1991 confirms her name as Sally Freeman . There is another article later that year that says she was aged 33 (so born 1958ish ? ) and living Mapperley Park Drive and it gave her full name as Sally Anne Freeman .

  40. We came second. Highest position since the days of Cliff Richard...or something like that. I didn't watch the programme. I knew the UK song was by Sam Ryder but I'd never heard it...so I watched it now on Youtube. It wasn't something I'd buy or listen to again, but I put that down to me being too old. Mr Ryder looked like he was in a metal/rock group, but sings like a castrato. Not my thing.

  41. Been to a fair in the next village this afternoon. There were near on. 100 vintage cars, scooters and motorbikes on display - thought of all you lot who like talking about cars! There was also lots of stalls, music and a fun dog show - including the waggiest tail, best sausage catcher and scruffiest mutt and best child handler. That was interesting as some of the dogs were much stronger than their handlers! (But no-one got hurt) There was a low-flying Spitfire which flew past 3 times as well. However, it was TOO HOT so I feel very tired now

  43. This royalty farce is all pomp and no circumstance. Bejewelled non-entities with medals never earned. Perverts, womanisers, parading their high military ranks never earned or deserved. A lot of the population fall for this glittering pagent of grossly over privileged, unmerited, confidence tricksters and all of their hangers-on. Makes me sick to see the pompous hoards of them dressed in their ridiculous outfits smirking on the palace balcony. Time to go!

Not only that but could park right up at the entrance. Saw two major accidents on the M1 and another on the M40. Got home safely though. Looking forward to me next meet -up.
