  1. Today I twice tried to open a new topic in 'Owt About Nowt' but each time the attempt disappeared. Is it something I said?
  2. 'Myself when young did eagerly frequent Doctor and Saint, and heard great argument About it and about: but evermore Came out by the same door where in I went'. Omar Khayyam
  3. The attention given to this by the media is one of the things which has put me off football for life.
  4. I found the most predictable and boring film I have seen to be 'Gone With The Wind'. I was dragged off to see it and noted all the men around were looking at their watches but some movies are so bad, they are entertaining. I find some of the Japanese S/F films to be of the type and let's not forget 'Plan 9 From Outer Space'. These days there are films of this genre made to satisfy the market, those such as, 'Sharknado' and 'Black Sheep'.
  5. There were some crazy things done in those days. I was on 1Sqdn at West Raynham when Flt Lt Al Pollock flew a Hunter through Tower Bridge. He was a great pilot and one of the few officers I knew of who was held in genuine respect.
  6. The disaster of these recurring floods and the sight of the unfortunates suffering as a consequence make me feel that much of the foreign aid we deal out should be diverted to causes closer to home.
  7. For one lacking feeling - 'Good King One Sense Less' For one whom Carl Jung analysis failed - 'Oh Come All Ye Freudian'. One struck dumb finding everyone awake in the House of Lords - 'Silent Knight'.
  8. Ski-jump, and be young and rich enough, or clever enough, to take trip into space.
  9. Just finished and enjoyed, 'Dune' by Frank Herbert and started 'Dissolution', by C J Sansom. I'm not too keen on historical novels but this is a good 'who done it' of Tudor times.
  10. Here's an interesting topic for discussion. In a radio programme this morning it was reported that some more 'experts' have decided that there is no difference between the brain of a man and that of a woman, therefore women do not naturally have superior skills at multi-tasking and men don't necessarily make the best map readers. I told my missus this and she smacked me with spoon whilst making her porridge after which I found my way round the house successfully with the vacuum cleaner. What do 'experts' know!!!
  11. Discussing a couple, one of whom not expected to last long, 'Ah! But a creaking gate hangs the longest'.
  12. The smell of a misty morning during Goose Fair weekend.
  13. On the question of school milk, when we were given it and other things in the diet of those days, I don't recall being aware of all the food allergies prevalent today, or perhaps they weren't recognised?
