  1. Nothing to do with Covid, it just happens to be where the quoted comment appears. Slight amusement for today - I just delivered a parcel to Gwendoline House. (That's a person, not a dwelling). ' Bet she doesn't like it abbreviated
  2. It seems to be legit. I have just followed the link and it takes you direct to NHS main website. It is purely for foreign travel. The link in the email takes you here:
  3. Has anyone else (besides me) had an email supposedly from the NHS asking you to apply for a Covid travel certificate? It is to allow European travel. Personally I don't need European travel but in any event it looks phishy. You have 12 hours to accept
  4. Did you call people who laid cobbles, cobblers?
  5. As I read this I thought - 'he's got a Peugot'. Couple of years ago I hired a Peugot Partner van for a week. Every time you turned the ignition on the blessed radio came on - no means to turn it off. When I took it back I said 'how do you turn the radio off?'. He says 'I don't know'
  6. Cost of Mac is very offputting. If it wasn't for that I would swop
  7. Well I am looking at buying a new computer in the not too distant future. What I buy may well have Intel i5 processor. Every new computer from a decent manufacturer that has Windows 10 installed comes with a free upgrade to Windoze 11 when it becomes available. You will still be able to use Windoze 10 in any event.

  11. I am about to freeze a load of runner beans. Some are saying I should blanch for 3 mins some are saying 2 mins. Which is best and is it that critical?
  12. Thanks for all the info folks. As the planned railway is to be set just pre war ( with some licence) I am pleased to say that I can forget trams. Now I know what type of trolley buses for NCT and NDT and what the colour schemes were.
  13. I have just read the info in the link in the first post but unfortunately it doesn't answer my question. I am wanting information as to what the colour schemes were for Nottingham Corporation trams and for that matter trolley buses in the 1930's. I am tempted to think that they were not green and and cream but brown or maroon and cream.

Looking at a retirement project to build a model railway in the loft - and no I
  14. Nobody has yet mentioned opening windscreens.
  15. Didn't have a problem until I clicked the back button to get off this thread. It took ages. Then it took ages to come back again so I could post this.
  16. I remember Melbourne Road police station roof as being flat - 1960's. In fact on that ariel view, the car parked at the side of the road just before the railway line is possibly my Uncle Alf's
  17. Its on the right hand side of the Strelley bypass as you travel from Nuthall island towards Coventry Lane. Or to put it another way its between Strelley bypass and the M1/A610
