    To Alexa Or Not

    I have just bought a Nextbase Dashcam that has Alexa. Not installed it yet but will post how I get on with it.

    I found to my delight a few weeks ago that I could have a Senior Railcard from age 60. I now have one - save 30% on fares. Costs £30 per year or £70 for 3 years. I have started to use trains more lately anyway.

    Buses in Nottingham

    Foulds didn't have a music shop in Nottingham as late as 80's. Unless you mean 1880's). They had finished in Nottingham long before I went into pianos in 1973. They just had the one shop in Derby by then, as now.

    Last time I saw it it was on a Triumph Stag and that must have been late 80's
  5. Yes it does. Long Eaton is NG10 but that is also in Derbyshire.
  6. Aaah but that's in Derbyshire. News of the invention of the internal combustion engine hasn't arrived there yet

    Another Pub _ Open All Hours?

    Not been down Main Street for a while so out of touch with that one. Last time I went in there it was still Brick & Tile and it was rubbish so never went again.

    Another Pub _ Open All Hours?

    Dog & Quail was previously Sandhills. Should know the one at Underwood but I didn't know one had been built so.... probably need to have a look.

    Digby Colliery

    I wasn't actually meaning what the pits name REALLY was. It was always known, to me at least, as Digby Pit.

    Just worked out wot sounded wrong with this. It's Digby Pit. Not Digby Colliery.

    World War One.

    I'll have a look for that book. All about the little people, not necessarily in stature tho'

    Water Meters

    I was paying £33.51 per month with my old water rate. Had a water meter about 2 years ago. My meter was read last month I shall now be paying something like £14.52 per month. (can't be bothered to check). Down from something like £17.60 something or other for the previous 6 months. (can't be bothered to check exact amount). I live on my own, no shower (I do have a bath occasionally), dishwasher, washing machine, loo and all the other stuff. I don't do anything to save water.

    Free bottle of Lucozade

    I tried Dandelion & Burdock a few weeks ago. That doesn't taste like it did 50 years ago either.
