  1. RR, your answer to 19 gave me a laugh
  2. I have 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, No idea about the rest
  3. Little Richard has always been one of my great favourites. Good Golly Miss Molly for me is the best, followed closely by Lucille
  4. That sounds reassuring, Nonna - I do hope they'll stick to their promise
  5. I love that film too, Jill. We read Great Expectations for English Lit O Level, so we were all taken to see it, but I've watched it a number of times since. I'm not a great fan of Dickens but I love that book, my favourite line being about Bentley Drummle "he was so sulky a fellow that he even took up a book as though it's writer had done him an injury"
  6. Happy Birthday and what a lovely idea the tea party was
  7. Richard of York gained battle in vain
  8. Jonab - isn't the first word Enquete (don't know how to do the accent on a keyboard!) rather than Euguet? Not that it really matters!
  9. I'm so sorry to hear this Sue. Care home residents and staff have very sadly been neglected. Take care
  10. Yes, SG, Bilborough Grammar always had speech day at the Albert Hall. I remember they were always even more strict about school uniform for that occasion
  11. I'm so sorry to hear this and what lovely words you had to describe your Dad
  12. An article in the Nottingham Journal of 22/10/1941 about Scotland Place Schools, New Basford, says "Tribute was paid by the Lord Mayor to the headmistress, Miss J Boultby, who, he revealed, would be retiring shortly"
  13. Yes, Brew, I think most on here are in receipt of pension. There are those of us, though, who are self-employed, like my husband and I, who, whilst in our 60's, are without any pension or income and have to wait until at least June for any Govt support
  14. MD I'm so sorry to hear this and hope you'll soon be together again
