    All Kinds of Everything.

    In the Bell Inn one evening, after a few pints of bitter, I downed a pint of barley wine in one go for a bet. Felt Ok at first, then went out of the door and it hit me like a sledgehammer. I ended up sitting on the ground while the world was spinning around me. Never, ever, touched the evil brew again.

    Foters Wiv' Motors.

    Mazda seem to like it though, as they’ve persisted with the RX range. Not the best for fuel economy, and as I’ve been told, once started, you shouldn’t switch off until the engine is fully warmed-up to prevent premature wear on the rotor seals.

    Nottingham Childrens Hospital

    The Children’s Hospital was on Berkeley Avenue, off Redcliffe Road. It later became offices for the Health Authority. I never went into the hospital itself, only the nurses home.
  4. I’ve a feeling that might have been the “Twiggy” Miura, previously owned by Twiggy’s manager, Justin de Villeneuve. If so, it’s still around and worth a few million quid.

    Buses in Nottingham

    Saw that a few weeks ago in the car park of the Nag’s Head in Woodborough, when we went there for lunch. The old fellow is still going strong, judging by his appetite!

    Speak Nottinghameze

    Shoes? You were lucky. For some of us, it was plimsolls in summer, wellies in winter. Not easy to run to the outside toilets in wellies, but at least you could warm your feet if you didn’t get there quickly enough.

    Enjoying owt on the box lately ?

    AM still do have an association with the Bond brand. They’re even making a few “new” DB5s with most of the toys for wealthy clients. Only £3m each!

    Enjoying owt on the box lately ?

    It was both of them, as Ford were quite pushy about getting their cars on TV. Hence the Sweeney had Granadas and the Professionals had Escort RS and Capri. Unlike BMC, who apparently refused to supply Minis to the Italian Job film makers.
  9. I hope they get plenty of sound-proofing for their money, to cover the noise from the City Ground, the cricket, and the traffic on the bridge.

    Royal baby

    I reckon that they should name him after one of the most famous Anglo-Americans from history, who also was a good friend of the Queen. All hail Prince Winston.

    How's your day?

    There was a time in a pub I used to frequent in Harby when you could buy fresh whole salmon that were “liberated” from Petfoods, which were originally destined for Chappie dog food. Tasted ok to me, and did wonders for my coat.

    How's your day?

    Doesn’t look like South Wales.
  13. Much to the chagrin of many commentators on the Nottm Post pages, and no doubt elsewhere.

    Harry Wheatcroft and Gedling

    From what I recall of my experience there, and what I know about other former pupils, definitely unusual!

    Was great to meet you tonight, Margie. My wife needs to know your secret at looking so young!
