    The English Language

    The often used insult was...…………………... Demings Lemmings! TQM was problematic in a number of places

    Remembering Nicky.

    The chosen music is so beautiful! Commo (Graham) your family will be together in your shared grief and you will together readjust. My thoughts are with you.

    St Anns in the 60s

    Brings back memories! That’s where the barbers was ! On my way home from school on the 31 bus I would stop off here for a haircut (if family funds will allow). By the time I was a teenager this was the place where I could comfortably buy “something for the weekend sir”.

    U3A

    I think it very good and like any other organisation has a variety of membership including the full range of humanity. One man’s best friend is another’s boring old fart!

    World War One.

    Corbyn is a politician with principles, to his credit he sticks to them. I prefer his consistency to those who lie and change their minds according to personal profit or popularity.

    How's your day?

    Morning Men and Women and of course all those that consider themselves gender neutral, Lovely dawn here and the day looks as if it holds promise. I intend to get the shopping done soon (Morrisons for some good fish) Then, a day in the garage sorting out a reluctant gearbox linkage and reorganising lathe tools. Then to a local for some amber nectar...……………………... Enjoy the day!

    How's your day?

    Rog, you could consider a dynostart off a ride on mower; that will start and charge ………... You would need a belt not a starter ring, I am looking at that on a big 4litre Sunbeam at present. If you wanted a starter ring where would you go?

    Classic cars

    Does anybody have a taper reamer that I could borrow? 6° taper, 18/19 mm at the narrowest end, any shank.

    Watson Fothergill's Home on Mapperley Road

    Yep school was not particularly interesting to me...………………………… learnt more there from the hardened socialists that had fought their way up the Co-op greasy pole than I did from disinterested teachers who taught to a strict GCE syllabus.

    Co-op Offices in the 60s. I had a holiday job there for a couple of years.

    All Kinds of Everything.

    I replaced a few chassis outriggers on both models, they rotted in a few years. In the 70s I was amused to see cars with a permanent lean on one side or the other where the replacement of outriggers had been bodged.
