  2. One ticket for " Ineficient Handbrake " in 62 years driving .... beat that !!!! ( Maybe someone can ? )
  3. . Police Warning Watch Out For This Scam Police say that the gang usually is comprised of four members, one adult and three younger ones. While the three younger ones, all appearing sweet and innocent, divert their 'mark' (or intended target) with a show of friendliness , the fourth - the eldest -- sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle through his or her pockets and purses or bags for any valuables being carried. The picture below shows the gang in operation. https://picasaweb.google.com/115320007664733979743/NewFolder12?authkey=Gv1sRgCMS1vMKs3tGEVg

KIds playing " Snobs " and Marbles, we used to stand a Haflpenny or a Penny in a crack in the Paving slabs and then from six or so Slabs away kids would try to hit the Coin and you would sit with your legs spread catching all the Marbles until it was hit. We would also play " Tin Can Alerty " , a Tin can would be kicked and whilst the fetcher went for the can the others would disperse to hide.--- Bread and Dripping Sandwiches !!!. Dad sk
  5. A very nice result through the power of the Forum !!! A short while ago I noticed a new member from Canada named Monk had signed up. In his entry he mentioned brothers in the U.K. including "Conrad Monk ". For over 10 years our family have been taking an annual holiday together and we always ask our Sister " Marian have you heard from Conrad Monk lately ? ". The answer was that she had been unable to find any trace of him. Conrad, my sister Marian Daniels,Eunice Whittle and Margaret Button and others as youngsters were founder members of the Junior Group at The Co Operative Arts Centre on
  6. Hi Brian , I was 4 in 1936 , so I may be a bit older, the Greengrocers was Ellis`s. I remember May Clarks, if you wanted something in short supply, her standard reply was ' sorry it`s all ordered ". Cheers Danny
  7. Hi Bulwell Brian and others , Does anyone remember " Little Eric " I believe its o.k to call him a Dwarf. He used to deliver Firewood, and he Chopped his wood at the back of the Oxford Pub. Also Albert Brown, the " Gay " man who wore Lipstick and always had a Flower in his Lapel.---- We had Gas when we moved to Bannerman Rd in 1936 !!! . I can remember being sent to Robinsons Shop on the Vale to get the " Mantles ", and get the Low Voltage Accumulator for the Radio Charged up for 2p, and Valves for the Radio. Mr Robinson had a square show Cabinet at the front of the shop and we would love to p
  8. One alternative would be to buy a Device, around £ 70/ £80 for some models. Whilst on to the topic of car rentals, please be aware of the damage deposit usually required and inspect the vehice thoroughly. I nearly got stung once , when I returned the Car they said there was a chip on the Windscreen and my deposit £ 50 was kept I argued that surely I had no control over this , but they still insisted. However after a couple of weeks and this event still bugging me, I suddenly remember that after the Man and I had inspected the vehicle, I remember he said O.K. sir, go into the office and I wil

  12. If one could take the D.N.A. from Gum Spat out on our streets would we trace back to 99% of the perpetrtaters of the recent acts of ,as the mamby pampies would term " Anti Social Behavior " My generation were brought up by a much different set of standards. We would never dream of Spitting on the streets , not respecting others property, public property and facilities If we hesitated at all we would think of our parents and the shame it would bring to them, and these are the family values that have eroded over two or three generations. There were five of us, we were brought up

  17. One of the most beneficial things we have experienced is the contacts we have made of Family all over the world, especially now with Skype. Also slowly seeing the demise of top priced stores like Dixons, Curries, Comet, P.C. World etc---now we can really see where the bargains are. In todays Mail they point out what a rip off H.D.M.I. cables can be , up to £100 !!! Experts say a £2 one does the same job .

  19. Across the road from our house at Bulwell , I always remember Mr Webb coming and going to work at Broughs on his Motorbike and Sidecar, I never aspired to a Brough but eventually had a Triumph on which I collided with a Director of Raleigh coming out of the Golf Club on the Ring Road , fortunately I did`nt end up like Lawrence but me and my passenger were thrown a good way, I sustained a small scratch ( but a big dent to my ego ) my girlfriend sustained a broken Collarbone . After that I aquired ( From dad ) a Wolesley ( Cop Car Type ) 1936 Vintage as my first car, then in order a s far
