  1. I would urge any of you who are concerned about the situation that we are in to watch this video. It is an hour long but it is a must watch and is of such importance.
  2. The ruling Elites understand the power of invoking fear in people as a means of social control. "No passion so effectively robs the mind of all it's power of acting and reasoning as fear." - Edmund Burke
  3. 1963, a time before Sandwich shops. The first Sandwich shop I came across was on Bridlesmith Gate around 1967/8 and I remember thinking that it was a good idea but would never catch on because folk just couldn't afford to pay that much just for a sandwich, let alone a shilling for just one apple!!
  4. If I remember correctly there were three sets of steps, so a pretty painful tumble! The cut through was Princess Terrace and on the left hand side at the bottom of the steps was a Tenants pub, The Princess Royal.
  5. I believe the analogy to the Spanish gallon was not about Hattie Jacques per se but was a line by the inimitable and wonderful Joyce Grenfell in her song "Old Tyme Dancing"
  6. I often get mistaken for our Scottish exi!ed mate Phil !
  7. Thanks Phil, now I can make the comment !
  8. Certainly tastes like it! Edit. Supposed to be a response to Phil's comment about lorne sausage and grass clippings, but didn't realise that post was at the bottom of the previous page, so loses it's impact somewhat now it's out of place !!
  9. Commo


    Ian, perhaps more a question of HOW ???
  10. Hopes were on Long Row as on Ian's photo, just up from Yates and before Pearsons. They were eventually taken over by a national chain as Ian mentions, can't recall the trading name before it apparently became Just Pants Plus, after I had been exiled to The North!
  11. Phil, that was actually Hornes, who had a Royal Warrant to supply the staff livery uniforms.
  12. Mother in Law used to pay into a Christmas Club at Landers in Sutton in Ashfield to buy a Christmas hamper of Chrissy Cake, mince pies, bread, mincemeat, all presented in a festive box, usually used after for storing odds and ends.
  13. Wasn't Hope Bros a Gents Outfitters ? Ben and I would have bought a few pocket silks from there to complement the silk ties!
  14. At the present both my Grandfather and his brother are shown with The Fallen on the Remembrance board in St Peters, Radford and will be united with all of the Nottingham heroes who fell defending our country and democracy in the Great War. I will have to make a pilgrimage to the new Memorial.
