    When my daughter was trying to print stuff for her final collection and exhibition for her degree in Fashion.. she naturally had a printer failure the night before final deadline for a few things. I spoke to my neighbour who is a bit of a P.C. wizz and he said, "get her to send me the files and I'll print them, come over and I'll give them to you". So... a little while later I went over there and he was printing Stef's pictures onto A4 sized photo paper. They were coming out 'full on' glossy, just like a high quality glossy photo print. He was using a printer with bo
  2. First of my neighbours had his jab Friday. Reported no ill effects. Two more had theirs yesterday and when I spoke to her this morning she said they both felt a bit 'off' overnight.. but were getting over it. She also said they didn't drink all that much considering it was their Anniversary... That does however raise the issue of booze and the jab. Never mentioned re: the Flu Jab and there seems to be nothing on the official online sites such as NHS.. whereas the usual suspects all claim it could 'ruin your immune response'. Jury's out I think..
  3. Wish him well. A very inspiring and very humble man. BBC News said he is not in intensive care..which is sort of 'so far so good.'
  4. Pretty sure we have a Dr Hook album somewhere on vinyl. I think Mrs Col bought it.
  5. Then it should be simple Paul... BK is also correct... because another way to do it is to just 'right click' on the video as it plays. That brings up 'Options'. The second down. 'Copy Video URL' will do it. So click on that. Then paste what you have copied into your message here. So.. I've just gone to Youtube and found Nancy Sinatra 'These Boots' etc. I 'right clicked' on the Vid and chose 'Copy Video URL' so I'll paste that here: Do those legs help Ben?
  6. Nonna. I don't usually have a problem with older films. The sound is hardly 'hi-fi' but is usually clear enough as it is mono and uncomplicated. There's no doubt that much recent cinema has been plagued by atrocious sound. My theory is that they expect everybody to have fancy AV (audio visual) systems with millions of speakers and separate 'subwoofers', 'centre dialogue speakers' etc. They can sound astonishingly good.... but despite having a 'posh' hi-fi, I certainly don't have those and I can struggle with the dialogue in many recent films...especially 'blockbuster' types...
  7. Yesterday I received a couple of CDs I've treated myself to: 1. The Complete Duets- Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrel 2. The Motown Anthology - The Elgins And still waiting for: 3. The Best of - The Velvelettes. I have many of their songs on assorted compilations.... but there's nothing like having them all and CDs are cheap as chips now. So I'm going to spend a few days transported back to 360 Club Land... Such memories... So: Wow.
  8. Ben. You didn't answer the question. Are you using a PC or a phone? On a PC just go to Youtube and find the 'search' field. It is no different to any othe online search field and has a little magnifying glass next to it. Type what you are looking for into that field. Artist, Song Title or both. A list will appear, check them out to find one you like. Some just show the song with a still picture, others show videos of the band/artist performing..Some are better than others. Pick the one you want. Right Click on the address bar at the top and click the '
  9. It does look as if the EU machinery ground rather slowly over this one. I'll not deny that. So it works out that (at least for now..) we are a little ahead of them in the vaccine programme. I also recognise Brew's point that whatever the UK may have agreed with AZ, AZ have a huge market in the EU which they will not willingly pass up. However.. I'd make three observations: 1: The tarriff free trade we had with the EU was worth billions...and is now gone, causing the chaos which is being somewhat masked by the Covid crisis. All of those arrangements were in place and
  10. Ref: the video of Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell above. Obviously it's a 're- working' to suit the Contours Motown classic 'Just a Little Misunderstanding' .. and I think it works pretty well. I think the original was Eleanor and Fred's version of 'Begin The Beguine'. From Broadway Melody of 1940' By all accounts.. Fred was very nervous working with her because although he was a great all round dancer.. she was the queen of tap.
  11. Sorry.. but I don't think I could visit any of the Holocaust sites. Mrs Col seems endlessly fascinated.. but I am just endlessy appalled and sickened. More to the point....whilst many people may need to be reminded....educated etc... I don't. I get it.. I believe it.. and I will do all I can to stop it ever happening again.
  12. I useter have the 78 of that. May still have it somewhere in the loft..
  13. Surely no dancing at the Whistle Stop? As I recall upturned milk churns for seats and just a 'basement boozer'.. though to be fair I never went in in the evening.
  14. For a bit there I was convinced that 'Gossip Calypso' was by Lance Percival.. until I reminded myself that it was.. .who had the hit here.. But further research shows that the song was written in 1943 and has been recorded numerous times since. We MUST get this stuff right!!!
  15. Hempshill Lane. Adventure No. 3. 'There's No Fire Without Smoke' (No motocycles, cousins or wellies were harmed in the making of this adventure.) As I've previously described.. There was the old railway bank..and then 'Sankey's Pad' running pretty much alongside it. Between the Pad and the Cemetary on the ridge, was 'Sankey's Tip'. As I recall it was just a lot of piles of sand/clay or whatever. However lying about, were lumps of solid, clay coloured plastic. Typically these were about a foot across and looked exactly like what they were.. plastic which
  16. Nothing I can do about that Margie...
  17. My own day was mainly punctuated by my attempts to cut my hair. I used my Wahl 'Beard Trimmer'. I get my kit off and stand in front of the bathroom mirror, shaving away at my beard and my hair. I stand on a towel.... to catch the flowing locks... I'm getting better at it. so that I can now get the 'main cut' of my head pretty neat using a No.3. Last time.. I also used a No.2 to go around my ears..and I messed it up. This time I got it better. Finally.. I used a very close cut to try to create a clear end to my hair at the back. That didn't go so well.. a
  18. Gem, I too am sorry to hear you lost your Mum....and you have my sympathies. I hope you can take some comfort from the fact that your Mum's passing was 'in the order of things'.
  19. I feel a bit cheated because a 'Cock up on the IT Front'.. to paraphrase Reginald Perrin.., means I'm left waiting until 7th Feb... when I should have been jabbed almost a week earlier. However.. although that puts me behind all of my similarly aged neighbours.. it puts me ahead of many in other parts of the country... so I'll take that.
  20. Yep. I've spent part of my day trying to persuade people to get it. A young black lady from the south east was posting on facebook trying to get other black people to get vaccinated.. but the opposition was frightening. The level of misunderstanding among some was appalling. And I should add that I think there are probably as many whites who think the same way. I was reading one quote that 33 people have died in Norway 'from the treatment'. No source. no verification but these people believe this stuff.
  21. Not really a subject for this thread but. Even if I were a conservative.. which I'm not.. I would not vote for this lot again because Johnson sacked or alienated anything resembing talent in his party..over Brexit...which is why the likes of Williamson are tolerated, Patel 'rehabilitated' and Gove kept at a safe distance.
  22. Further to my comments upthread.. I got my jab booked today. I'm going to the St Helens Rugby League Stadium on Sunday 7th Feb. Here in the North West we seem to be doing a little better than some on the vaccine rollout. .. but we are slightly behind the North East. All reports about the 'Saint's' RLFC ground say it was exceptionaly well run in the Autumn for Flu Jabs.. and is the same now for Covid. That said.. My GP Practice put on their F'Book page on Monday that they had contacted 70 year olds. They didn't contact me. I resisted calling them because all ove
  23. What do we mean by 'above' the Odeon? I certainly remember the ABC/Cannon. but in my mind it was just over the road and down a bit from one of the Kardomah's.. and not close to the Odeon..But I have to admit that my memory of Central Nottm fades more every day and isn't helped by all the change..
