  1. What is it? Could we eat it? I was intrigued enough yesterday to take these pics on the local beach. The seagull was certainly enjoying it

    Where does ‘The North’ begin

    I do think that topics we discuss on Nottstalgia are often used on the radio, especially local stations. All the anonymous ‘Guests’ are likely to be researchers looking for something to talk about.

    Old Streets of Nottingham

    The larger building here on Halifax Place was bought not long after this by a very good friend of ours and turned into apartments and offices. He was one of the first developers to buy old Lace Market buildings and turn them into accommodation. They still live in the building too,.

    Think we’ve had this discussion before, but I say Sheffield.

    Worst actor(s) on TV and film

    Yes RR, watched that and really enjoyed it, funny and very sad in equal parts and Hugh Grant was brilliantly cast in it.

    Yellowstone

    It was a far worse covering in Washington State Loppylugs, we went from Victoria to Port Angeles on the ferry and drove through the Olympic National Park, giant redwoods etc, blah blah, got boring to be honest! Not been back over there for 25 years, must do it again while we can handle long haul flights! My brother-in-law and his wife have lived on the water’s edge in Victoria for about 10 years now and we’ve not gone to see their ‘new’ place, yet they come over here every year to see us. Bit mean of us really. The friends in Tacoma are now in Easton, Pennsylvania, an area dominated by rusting steelworks. Not bothered!

    pets?

    A courgette Nonna? Not a marrow? So tiny, does she get trodden on very often?

    Yellowstone

    We visited Victoria, BC a few days after Mt St Helens initial eruption, everyone was sweeping the grey dust. We then went down to visit friends in Tacoma, near Seattle and whilst there the mountain had minor eruptions which we could hear from Tacoma, about 150 miles away. We drove up Mt Rainier (which is 50 miles from the volcano) to see the devastation of burnt trees and we collected volcanic ash in little jars and brought it back home, still got some in the garage, looks like someone’s cremated remains! The boys earned lots of house points over the next few years when they took the ash to their Geography lessons!

    Nonna, it was the chemicals that I could never get right ...... whenever I was left in charge the water went green!

    You’ll hopefully have some summer left to enjoy your new pool NonnaB but the builders need a good kicking for not getting it right from the beginning. However, we’ve had pools and would never contemplate owning another one, more trouble than they’re worth but great when the kids were growing up.

    What’s Monsieur President doing there then FLY, did he know you were visiting or is he trying to avert another French summer strike, to inconvenience the whole of Europe?

    Blimey Carni, don’t overdo it gel. I admire you though, tomorrow I’m going on a long walk (apparently), at least it will improve my ‘step count’
  13. Wonder which stretch of road that would be. As I’ve said before, the City Highways planners had tremendous foresight building the boulevards so wide, there’s been very little widening/Junction improvement necessary in the past 80 years.
  14. I had to google that NBL cos I didn’t believe you!! They’re called the Green Berets I believe.

    If you’ve got any spares Moodycow, some of the residents of Mapperley Park are making a determined effort to beautify the little roundabout on Mapperley Hall Drive, they’re begging for plants!
