Girls you mention the net under skirts, in between mini's and pencil skirts, under skirts were made of paper nylon then net was used as full short skirts were in fashion , it took about3yds of net to make an under skirt. the skirt was made in 6inch layer's when joined on to the next layer it was gathed. So the more gather's the fuller the skirt. ( Locarno ) Old Vic This man who was on the balcony in the old vic was thowing peanuts at a l

  4. Best wishes for your recovery Letsavagoo. As someone who had the virus, along with husband last Nov/ Dec, I know how ill you can be. It truly is a dangerous illness. I had first vaccine in Feb, and due the second one in April, but spent eight days in hospital with Pancriatitis instead, putting my second vac late to the end of April. Husband had his booster last week, and today at 9am we are off down the surgery (open today just for Vaccs) for our Flu jab, I will ask about my booster because I must be due by now. Probably be told to wait for them to contact me, but no harm in asking.

  5. Almost a month ago I saw my grandchildren one of who unbeknown to us had coronavirus picked up at school. He became ill and 3 days later I tested positive for it. I have health issues which class me as ‘clinically vulnerable and have been careful but not paranoid. I have been extremely unwell. Without going into detail which I’m sure you don’t want to know I could hardly move due to extreme pain in joints to the point of being prescribed morphine. I am testing clear now and am up and about but am still far from well. The skin on my hands peeling, coughing a lot now where as I didn’t have a cou

  11. @letsavagoo really sorry you have been so unwell and hope you’ll soon be back to full health. It really is a horrible virus. I hope all those younger than me will go and have their flu jabs ASAP because getting flu and Covid at the same time would not be good. best wishes, Margie x

  12. Letsavagoo has been in touch with me during his illness and it sounded pretty horrific. I know he's had his vaccinations and it does make you wonder what he might have suffered if he hadn't done so. This thing is still very dangerous. Don't be fooled into a false sense of security.

  13. It's reared It's ugly head because folks have been very lax this last few months. Government lift restrictions and people think it's all done with. Been watching local news down here and watching the figures climbing daily (in Lewes) from low double figures to 224 on last night's news. Suspect a City like Nottingham will be a lot higher.

  16. Neither PCR or Lateral Flow tests can show positive from the booster. Regardless of which you had for first two doses (AZ or Pfizer) you will most likely get Pfizer as a booster. The brand name for Pfizer is Comirnaty (you might spot that on the paperwork). PFizer is a messenger RNA (mRNA). It is a small part of the virus genome that tricks the host cells to make the COVID spike protein. Your immune system sees the spikes and generates a suitable response. The mRNA is unstable (that's why it has to be kept very cold before use) and is attacked by enzymes, which breaks it down within hour

  17. I know you like to wind us up, but really? Apart from denying all of the facts, can you also confirm that every one of those clowns in that crowd was free of Covid and not infecting everyone else? -New cases today, highest for months at about 40000..and that's just the reported ones. -Deaths running at around 150 per day and rising. That is around 1000 per week, or 50000+ per year, which is about 5 times more than a 'bad' Flu year. -Most deaths are unvaccinated people, but not all. -The vaccines are not perfect, but they massively reduce the cha

  18. When will these morons believe what has happened instead of trying to convince themselves. With 34,000+ new cases how do you come to this conclusion. At the moment we have 2,500 cases and we are still taking precautions whilst reviewing the situation and releasing some restrictions. Grow up RR. Or are you immune.

  19. Finally got a quote for the work on my side roof (hooray). After the original person who quoted passed away suddenly a week or so before it was going to be done I was given a recommendation for a local firm.Rang them and they came out to do a quote. It isn’t an enormous job and I got the feeling they weren’t really interested, they didn’t take any measurements etc. just had a look and said they would txt me a quote. I waited a week, rang them and they assured me they were going to do a quote but had been “busy”. If they weren’t interested I would rather they said instead of messing me around.

  21. Today we were out around Dorset in son’s car and thought it wise to put some fuel in it. Well we resembled Mr and Mrs Magoo. First problem was not being able to open the flap over the fuel cap. Pressed lots of buttons, a chap filling up next to us came to assist and had no luck so I googled the Land Rover main dealer but couldn’t work out how to use the car’s satnav. I put the post code onto my phone and set off. We ended up in the middle of town by the bus station, with no car dealership anywhere to be seen. Rang our son, who’s working in Tanzania, who told us to press a button under the

  22. We went for our booster jab (left arm) and flu jab (right arm) today. When we were walking across the car park we were holding hands as we often do. One of the younger volunteer guides said: “Aw, it’s so lovely to see you holding hands”. We smiled sweetly of course but I felt a bit patronised with her thinking that older people were past that sort of thing! I suppose I might have thought that as well when I was in my twenties though… after our jabs we met with both our sons and some of their families and went for a 2 - 3 mile slow walk along the river at Ely. We had the pleasure of

  27. No taps on the soles? Never mind, you could always buy some. Can you still buy segs? I think the days of things like that went with the throwaway society. When I was little, if it wore out, you mended it! I'm afraid I'm still the same. It's the way I was brought up. Can't teach this girl anything about recycling. Let me know when you've got your tap shoes, Ben. We'll have a dance down 42nd Street!

  29. Carni hope you get your booster soon. We are having to wait 6 months after second vaccination so anxiously await the call. Hope you are on the way to complete recovery but along with the problems you have had it will take its time and hopefully doesnt take its toll out of you. Look after yourselves. All the best.

  32. I’ve just received my latest electric bill and am apparently £17,000 in debt. I was about £300 in credit. Yes, that’s right £17k debit. I’m with bulb energy and it’s been a total disaster with them for months. My property is xxxxxxx Farm Cottage and next door is xxxxxxxx Farm. It seems there is an inability of the energy companies to distinguish between the two. I can see they’re similar but so is number 11 and 12. Spent hours on the phone trying to resolve it. Now they have decided that I have two electric meters. My meter was changed as it was very old about 5 years ago and they seem to have

  33. We had our booster texts the other day too. My husband wants to get his done ASAP but I prefer to wait as we’re off to Spain next week and don’t want any side effects ……… I was perfectly ok after the other two but am thinking the Day 2 test we’ll need to do on our return might show I’ve got Covid (from the jab!)

  42. A recent post on the Southwell thread, about a particular hymn we often sang at The Manning, reminded me of a problem we experienced at that institution which I never really understood. I'm sorry to say that there were some light fingered little s*ds at Manning. Who they were goodness only knows but they had rather odd tastes in their activities. Girls were not permitted to bring anything other than a very small amount of money into school and there was a rule that this must be kept in their pursebelt. At times when the pursebelt was removed, ie games, gym or dance less

  48. In that case read what a HGV driver has to say. So, you are running out of food on the shelves, fuel in the garages, you can’t buy things you need, because the shops can’t get their supplies. Why is that? A shortage of goods? No A shortage of money? No A shortage of drivers to deliver the goods? Well, sort of. There isn’t actually a shortage of drivers, what we have, is a shortage of people who can drive, that are willing to drive any more. You might wonder why that is. I can’t answer for all drivers, but I can give you the reason I no longer drive. Driving was something I alw
