    Hi, not sure if this is allowed, but this is to announce that my uncle Reg Guest sadly passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning. He was a true legend in the music business and he will sadly missed by all of his family and his many friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Well that work ethic is getting to be something we don't see so much of anymore. He sounds like me. I'll have a go at anything. Crawling under cars, fixing appliances. I even built a sunroom on the back of our house. Got it inspected and everything done right. Truth is I'm cheap!

    I'm off to Northumberland for a few days on Thursday so I will be missing for a while. Have an errand to run for a 94yrs old Jewish lady whose family escaped from the Nazis to Scotland and stayed in Peebles (Borders) during WWII. I'm going to the house she lived in to try and get permission to take some photos for her.

    Yes, they did fantastic pizzas in that Pizzaland. Just the way I like them with thin bases and loads of topping. There was also one on Clumber Street. I hate thick pizza bases!

    I don't think they bother cleaning anywhere these days. All the soak away grates on Hucknall Rd are chocked full, with no chance of any rainwater getting through .

    Full agreement Brew but when they leave all of their unwanted good are left in front street or dumped, what does that cost the council. The mess they leave town center in after drinking all night again cleaned by city council, I am talking about Newcastle but is seems to be the same in every university city.

    On several old directories, Eddy's are shown as 116-118 Alfreton Road. Today it looks like this - the Hi-Fi Centre and ENL.

    Burtons was more than a fruit and veg shop.It was an upmarket shop selling all types of fine food. In the 80s it was taken over by Fine Fare.

    Worked two Christmases at Pork Farms factory in St Annes in the 60s, rendering lard, boiling polony, and linking sausages. 12 hour shifts, 6 'til 6, with fantastic pork-oriented breakfasts and lunches.
