  1. Theddlethorpe WW. I collected lots of bullets, shell casings and other stuff there. My cousin and I were there about 1960, and the very tattered red flag was flying. We assumed that the range hadn't been used for years. How wrong we were. We soon scarpered when the planes came into sight.
  2. Ginger Baker, legendary drummer with Cream, Blind Faith, Hawkwind, Atomic Rooster, Baker Gurvitz Army, Ginger Bakers Airforce, and the Graham Bond Organisation has sadly died today aged 80. Truly amazing !
  3. Thank goodness it was only bums !
  4. Seen one, you've seen em all.

    Not exactly biscuits as such, but when I went to the local Co-op to pay my lottery yesterday, lo and behold, they had packets of shortcrust pastry mince pies. Yes, I did succumb to temptation !
  6. I always wondered that. Also more recently, tyre and exhaust centres.
  7. When I was at the Menin Gate a few years ago. Harry Patch, one of the last three WW1 Tommies was there. Sadly, he died a couple years ago.
  8. Wasn't he an artist / engraver ?

    Check out the Sondey brand of biscuits at Lidls. Some right scrummy ones. Trouble is, they're the ones that are most fattening ! Grrrr !

    Now they are always broken. I save them up, and give them to my daughters dog !
  11. B, you can still get those packets of mini Mars bars I think, or there's certainly a different manufacturers equivalent, and most likely cheaper, which is a bonus no doubt ! You can push the boat out then, and have half each ! My current treat for the weekend is a toffee cheesecake, and a caramel tart..... Not for consumption on the same day I might add !
  12. So sad that Notts CCC have been relegated, but I see no reason why they shouldn't bounce back immediately. It's been a wretched season, what with injuries, loss of form by key players, disruptions by the weather, and of course Stuart Broad, our world class bowler being on England duty all summer. Lets hope for better things next season.
  13. I certainly try to make do and mend, but there becomes a time when its just not practical to do so. Those lights are so cheap, I'm afraid renewal is the best option. When I had wooden garden furniture, I virtually rebuild the bleddy things out of pallets over the years. Impossible now that I've only got Rattan style stuff.

    No, I've never been bothered, as I prefer the real thing !
  15. Twenty odd years ago when I was van driving for a living, I was pulled into one of those DVLA inspection places on the A1. Everything was okay, but I hadn't my documents on me. I attempted to show them at Strelley Police Station the following day, but couldn't gain access. I eventually found Bulwell accessible a week later.

    If ever I'm staying down that way, I visit Rye Winchelsea, or Hythe. A much better class of residents
  17. Bin it Albert ! Try Wilkos, B & M or a similar establishment for a replacement. Hopefully you'll improve health wise soon matey.

    I'll never revisit the place, as I'd be reluctant to inhale the atmosphere, or go to the WC in case I caught something !

    Park your car in Brighton ! Chuff that ! Last time I was there about 15 years ago, I was giving some good old Anglo Saxon verbals to a black guy who wanted to push in and nick a place I was heading for, and he pulled a gun on me ! His missus calmed him down thankfully.
  20. Likewise Bubblewrap. Although I did see him on Arnold Rd a few weeks ago.

    No, the digestive is fine, it's the Rich Tea that instantly becomes a mush.

    Oh come on for goodness sake ! You hold the icing bit and dunk the rest ! LOL It's so simple !
  23. Same yesterday with the chaos caused by the Robin Hood half marathon. Don't the organisers realise folks have things to do and lives to lead ? Let em run round Wollaton Pk lake a few times.
