  1. You've often told us you're 76. I was only 74 a fortnight ago. I can't remember what number on Norton St I'm afraid.
  2. Barrie ! I've never known my birth parents, and I've only recently seen my mothers birth certificate, and she had me at Norton St. We may have the same dad. We could be related. You could be my older brother! LOL
  3. Tongue in cheek B...... Just saying !
  4. A troglodyte is a cave dweller. A troll is an ugly dwarf, see Google. I hope you're not insulting one of our senior members ! Tut, tut !
  5. Unbelievable ! I'll never look at any Willow Pattern plates again, without cringing.
  6. It'd be nice if any gigs were posted on here, for anyone not wanting to disclose their email address.
  7. Some great tracks there Moz. Definitely something for everyone's tastes.
  8. Great to see the good bricks being palletised in readiness for recycling. Brilliant !
  9. Shame Brew, it's a fantastic location .
  10. I often have a drive out to the Rother Valley Country Park on a Sunday, and there's always a fantastic display of waterskiing over obstacles etc. Fascinating, and good bacon cobs in the cafe, after a walk around the lake !
  11. Many people probably had their first tattoos done in prison anyway. You can always tell the amateurish exhibits !
  12. My youngest daughter once ran her own business in laser tattoo removal. She was never short of customers as they realised the stupidity of their actions. It also amazes me how the majority of tattooed women are on benefits. They must keep winning on all the scratch cards they buy !
  13. Oh God no ! She's does absolutely NOTHING whatsoever for me ! She's the ultimate antithesis of my desires !
  14. I watched it too, and wondered where it was. I often think that folk just want a quick makeover, then just leave it to deteriorate. Never mind, I often enjoy the programme, and always aspire to achieve their results.
  15. Well I'm going out of this world as I came into it. No tats, no piercings, no hair, no teeth, no money !
  16. Belated birthday wishes Lizzie. I hope you were spoiled rotten, and had a fantastic day.
  17. Birchenall also played for Leicester City. A great character, and very skilful
  18. Ah, come to think of it, I reckon I've seen them in Tesco's.
  19. Not seen any for a good few years, but I know that my cash goes either down the tubes, or up into thin air !
  20. Welcome Bigs. Some great topics on here, and no doubt many memories will be recalled. Happy browsing.
  21. Dr Peake was at FFGS prior to BGS. He was a totally humourless sod, with the personality of a used paintbrush !
  22. You should have been at FFGS Ian. Equally horrific !
  23. Lizzie, I don't know if you listened to the entire Top 100 Motown songs, but I can imagine some of the less popular ones being dire, but also some very interesting ones. I like Rock and Blues, but for every Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, AC / DC, Whitesnake, G & R etc, there's some appallingly awful bands like Kiss and Motley Crue etc. Likewise in the early 60's, there were many good bands from Liverpool / Manchester, such as The Beatles, Searchers, Hollies, Big 3, but then there's the other side of the coin with joke 'bands' such as Hermans Hermits, Gerry & The Pacemakers and Freddie & the Dreamers, who musically were nowhere. I could never take to pop bands such as The Tremoloes, Dave Clark 5, etc. Give me The Zombies and Spencer Davis any day.
  24. It's on utube Martyn. Stupendous !
  25. The Rothera family have been in the legal profession since the mid 19th century. Look up 'History of Rothera Sharp, Solicitors'. Fascinating stuff.
