  1. I reckon it will be one of those ‘alternative religions’ that will move in. Too far out of town for student accommodation, don’t think there’s any parking either, a must these days when all students seem to have cars.
  2. No Phil, the Cedars building is still there, having been turned into ‘executive apartments’ a long time ago. In fact I know 3 people who live in the building but I’ve never been invited in. All I remember about the Cedars years ago was that it was a rehabilitation centre, my Grandad was in there in 1953/54ish recovering from a bowel cancer operation. He didn’t live much longer after that sadly. The Ewing School for the Deaf was the location of the first Youth Club I ever attended and I learned to do the Twist there!! Don’t remember there being any deaf kids there while Chubby Che
  3. Nothing to be ashamed of Phil!!
  4. Regarding the recent events in Halam, I feel so sad for the victim, his family and also the accused and HIS family. He looks a very kind and caring man to me but he obviously had serious issues chewing away at him to leave home in the middle of the night to attempt murder. Such a shame.
  5. I’ve sat next to Susan George a couple of times since the Victoria Hotel episode, but didn’t mention seeing her being eaten alive by Patrick Wayne. Several years ago we were in a box at a fantastic event at the Royal Albert Hall. In the next box to us were Susan George and Joan Collins with their husbands. On another occasion we shared a table in Pret A Manger at Bicester Village.
  6. Ben, I was staying in the Victoria Hotel with an Irish Wolfhound in 1975, yes it’s true ...... I shared a lift late one night with the hound, Susan George and John Wayne’s son Patrick. Don’t think they noticed I was there, they were all over each other, expect they had a good night!
  7. A friend of ours lived in one of those towers with his parents, until about 50 years ago, when he got married. Odd isn’t it? ........ young people living with their parents until they got married, doubt any of them do nowadays, my two boys certainly didn’t. There was more respect in those days.
  8. Cheese being a favourite treat for our dogs, we’ve always pushed any pills into a little chunk of cheese and thrown it to them. Doesn’t even touch the sides. However, as I was telling a few months ago, giving insulin injections twice a day wasn’t quite so easy.
  9. I remember that little train on Valley Road Park. Never went on it but I’m sure someone I know bought it all, I’ll do a bit of research.
  10. Always the left arm jabbed and all the recipients look away, just like I do (especially when I’m having blood taken!) In about 1973 I was going to the Netherlands for only 18 hours ..... very early morning flight from Castle Donington to Amsterdam, lightning tour around on a coach visiting all the hot spots and back to England just before midnight, before landing my friend and I were trying to hide duty-free booze inside wooden clogs we’d bought (not sure why we’d bought them, the clogs) because when we got back on the plane there was a duty-free allowance on every seat. Anyway, due to
  11. Well I am! Used to take the Telegraph every day but when my husband was working overseas for weeks at a time I was so busy keeping everything running in the home and office I never even opened it so changed to the Mail as it had more pictures to look at!! Have never got around to changing back although the Telegraph is so expensive now, can’t afford it! We have the Sunday Times which really gives enough reading to last the whole week but we like to keep the paper boy in employment .....
  12. That’s not the incident’s headline in my Daily Mail
  13. I never knew it existed either BK but 2 or 3 years ago a group of Nottstalgians visited this tunnel, I couldn’t get there but one of these days I’ll go try to find it.
  14. I’ve just pinched the above photo from Facebook ‘Mapperley People’, Ashwell Tunnel and it’s only been posted this evening! Looks like 1950s but could be that harsh winter of 62/63.
