  1. I bought a second hand ladies fur jacket off Sneinton Market around the mid 60's in my hippie days. Cheesecloth shirt and purple flared cords with Paisley inserts. No wonder dad cringed when I went out.

  11. Sorry, I suppose this could go under "Pet Hates" bit I think it might have a lot of mileage in it! I hate it when supermarkets "hide" a full priced article in with loads of offers! I was in a suprmarket the other day with the grandkids buying chocolate - what else are grandparents for. They had a "Buy 3 for £1.20" deal, so, mouth watering, I thought "Ooh, one for me!" We chose our Galaxy bar, and Whisper and I had a Mars bar. Got to the checkout - no offer. Went back to the shelf which was full of these "3 for £1.20" bars - except for the Mars bar, right in the middle, which was part of a se

  16. I always thought posher areas would be more targeted with burglaries because people know it's a nice area and people living there are likely to have more valuables..

  17. Not a knock on the area at all Michael but unfortunately I think many who live in the area would cite the various problems that Bilborough has these days. It's not just a couple of people and it's not just Bilborough. Yes, 'posh' areas as you term them have crime and violence too - off course they do - markedly less of it though.

  19. I'm with Banjo, Somewhere on the western side of the Trent like Bleasby, Fiskerton, Morton, Averham. Would obviously have to be cautious of any flood prone areas. Alternatively some of the beautiful villages further away from the river Gonalston, Thurgaton through to Southwell

  20. Chulla , how dare you compare me with an Aeroplane !!!!!!!! only joking because your wife may not speak to me again if I shout at you. But Brenda may sound italian to you because you've known me for so long. There is a name in italian which is similar Wanda ( Vanda) Many english names are popular here but the emphasis on certain letters change the name completely. Nicola is a masculine name pronounced NicOla emphasis on O. AlicE emphasis on E (female). Ida (Eeda) A lot of masculine names translated are very old names but quite popular here. Maurizio, Maurice, Giorgio, George. Alberto , Alber

  27. Here's the Black Boy before it became the building we recognise. Seems to have been a bit of a nondescript place until Mr Fothergill got his hands on it; this is the building which he modified to his own style.

  28. Strange to think that just 50 years before that photo of Cliff tons, that section of road was more or less a bog flooding in bad weather...And even stranger if you stand there today that below your feet is stone from the Fosse originally quarried by Roman engineers nearly 2000 years ago. http://www.nottshistory.org.uk/articles/tts/tts1931/itinerary1931p3.htm

  31. £1 for half litre of beer in a supermarket and 45p for a litre of tonic. A pub's got to have a lot of ambience and interesting customers to make it worthwhile to turn out - and then you've got to walk there on a cold winter's evening.

  32. An example of what a place can be like which wasn't ruined in the 60s and 70s by the planners and architects. The opposite of Nottingham and many other places. Southwell stands out for having no concrete-and-steel ugliness and no high-rise blocks.

  33. These and similar villages are some of my favourite places in Nottinghamshire. I probably wouldn't feel a need to go that far away from the city, particularly as I work there. The place I would certainly choose would be Woodborough, or possibly Lambley. There are problems with floods these days but aside from that they're great for what I want out of life, in Nottingham anyway. I have to be honest and say there are vast swathes of Nottingham I wouldn't touch with a barge pole these days though. Things are not what they were.

  35. I must be in the mobile skin too . If you use mobile devices more than a laptop , does it automatically default to this mode as I have never tried to alter the skin . Can't post photos nor do I have the drop down toolbar . Change Theme button doesn't do anything . So can someone "do" me too please ?

  36. I wonder if you are in the 'IP Board' skin that I usually use. Try scrolling right down to the bottom left and you'll see 'Change Theme' there. Click on it and a drop down menu will give you options. Try clicking on 'Old School'. Let us know, Col.

  37. DJ, Sorry you are having such an annoying problem. I know very little about this kind of thing and the only time I have ever changed the skin was to change back to normal from the Christmas theme. On the very bottom left of my screen there is a sign that says.... Skin by Dumbledore for TPPSkinning.com. Just above that; there is a sign saying Change Theme. I clicked on that and changed mine. I know you will probably have already tried that, but just in case. I hope it works for you.

  41. When my 3 grandsons were born I suggested that they used my granddads Christian name. No takers. Great grandson - no thanks. Well it's my middle name and I'm proud of it! We would not have potatoes or tobacco if it wern't for my old namesake.... or bikes.

  46. I was reading a magazine this morning and found an article that was about Nottinghamshire and the WW2 war effort. With all the posts regarding a lack of Nottingham/Shire topics I was quite pleased to have found it. I looked on Nottstalgia for the best place to post it but was then disappointed to find that it had already been mentioned in this thread by Bilbraborn and plantfit. However, there wasn't much detail so below is the full report. http://aoghs.org/petroleum-in-war/roughnecks-of-sherwood-forest/ http://www.bbc.co.uk/insideout/eastmidlands/series11/week4_sherwood_forest_oil.shtml
