  3. If you can identify with this then you are a true friend. A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty He said...no. She asked him if he would want to be with her forever He said no. She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a no. She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said... You're not pretty you're beautiful. I don't want to be with you forever, I NEED to be with you forever. And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die... SO NOW I WILL SAY: I like you because of who you are to me...A true friend. Remember:” A good friend will come bail you out of jail....But a true friend will be sitting next to you saying ...WE screwed up, but we had fun! I've learned...that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes. I've learned...that we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for. I've learned...that money doesn't buy class. I've learned...that it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular. I've learned...that under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved. I've learned...that the Lord didn't do it all in one day. What makes me think I can? I've learned...that to ignore the facts does not change the facts. I've learned...that the less time I have to work, the more things I get done. A
  4. our ANGEL

    Talking about Angel being on Deal or No Deal, did anyone see this programme on Thursday? I think it was Thursday. There was a guy on there who answered to the name of SHED. Just a thought... A
  5. No one Sed Owt!

    Totally agree Rob, we do appreciate your endeavours to make us 'luk posh' but at this rate I will have muscles like knots on cotton all down the middle finger of my right hand. Nice to see both coats of arms though, can we not have one each side of the Nottstalgia banner? A
  6. The Tom Trevethick Story

    My husbands Uncle used to own the Pleasure Park, his name was Cortrey. He also owned Bell Fruit at Lenton. This was probsbly why he could afford the first E type Jag in Nottingham, a red one I believe. A
  7. coffee bar

    The Empire Cafe was on Forman Street, down some steps. The chap behind the counter used to be able to make a jug of milk talk, and a teapot full of hot tea. The place had a smell all of its own, a combination of tea and ham sandwiches. People say the sense of smell brings back most of the memories you have and I totally agree. I cannot smell hot tea without the thought of that place popping into my head. A
  8. coffee bar

    Having been in the Empire Cafe as a child then all other coffee bars and cafes are pushed into ablivion. A
  9. Greetings man

    How come Edwin L can have a banner at the bottom of all of his replies that would confuse most English speaking people, yet he cannot write the Queens English when it comes to putting three or more words together? Again, me thinks something is awry... A
  10. Long Eaton - Where?

    Here in sunny Ilkeston we boast the best of both worlds, a DE postcode with a 01159 telephone STD code. Great for some things but try finding a Derby number in the Nottingham directory... A !tony!
  11. City centre

    Is it anywhere near the old Rutland pub and the alleyway that runs up from the Market Place to the back door of the pub? A !tony!
  12. Scala Cinema Ilkeston

    I found a picture of the Scala Ilkeston on Picture the Past, it looks great and really too good to pull down. A
  13. Scala Cinema Ilkeston

    As you probably know, we have a Scala Cinema in down town Ilkeston. It boasts the old style double seats. Some time ago it was rumoured that it was to close and the people of Ilkeston decided to fight for it and it is still open. How does one go about getting a Lottery grant to restore these things? Is it the Arts Council that is approached? The Scala Ilkeston is probably one of the oldest cinemas in the country and it would be a shame to see it close for the sake of a few injections of cash. It appears that the balcony is not used anymore for fear of it falling down. I wonder if it is too late to help? A
  14. Nelson Squares?

    Come to Ilkeston and go to Stacey's the bakers. They sell them and cream horns and Batenburg cake. You cannot beat Birds caramel donuts and blackcurrant tarts. A

    Was his understudy the skull and cross bones on the pirate flag 'Jolly Roger'? A
