  2. I remember the Mill Cafe as I didn't live very far from it when I was a youngster and in my teens. Obviously I have a great memory :-)
  3. Welcome to Nottstalgia Sarah, I'm sure you will find posts that will take you back and remind you of local things you may have forgotten.
  4. I remember catching a bus to Wilford (Barton's) at the previous open air bus station to go and see my grandmother
  5. See the article below:- http://www.nottinghampost.com/skimming-device-found-on-nottinghamshire-cash-point/story-30430999-detail/story.html
  6. I agree Compo it wasn't particularly good.
  7. Programme on BBC2 tonight (Saturday July 1st) at 9pm looks back to when TV started and the effect on the public. I'm sure it will bring back memories to most of us.
  8. All the best to you both - Carni and Michael
  9. Here's a review of the book about the History of Nottingham's Council Houses https://municipaldreams.wordpress.com/2015/12/08/book-review-homes-and-places-a-history-of-nottinghams-council-houses/
  10. There are quite a number of ads on T.V. that I find annoying but the most annoying at the moment is the one about p.p.i. Any you find annoying?
  11. The above is a new documentary series starting on channel More4 tomorrow (Tuesday 13th June) at 10pm. It's got a recommendation in the Radio Times and could be of interest to a lot of members on the forum. I don't think it is serious all the time.
  12. Adam West who is probably best well known for playing Batman has died. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40235142

    Why?

    I can't understand why on certain products it states they should be kept in a fridge but when you buy them that aren't in any cool place - just on the normal shelves. Things such as eggs and some fruit like grapes. Is there any 'normal thing' that you find no reason for?
  14. I remember from my teens there were lots of adverts for pen friends or pen pals. I assume these have all disappeared now with the internet. I recall having 2 pen friends - one in Holland and another in the U.S.A.
  15. Sir Roger Moore has died, aged 89 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-40018422
  16. Just a reminder the above programmes are on tonight (Friday May 19th)
  17. I expect many of us will have visited Gee Dee Model Shop in our younger years. It is now for sale - let's hope someone buys it and it just doesn't close. http://www.nottinghampost.com/will-it-be-full-steam-ahead-for-nottingham-model-shop/story-30340408-detail/story.html
  18. Cliff Ton if I remember on the previous system members' details were on their profile only but weren't on their posts as well except very basic details.
  19. There are also over 2,000 posts regarding "Happy Birthday" going back many many years.Surely just keeping the last 12 months is enough to retain.
  20. On the subject of space usage. Surely a lot of space is taken by the details of some members on the left side of each of their posts which are quite long whilst their actual posts are a lot smaller.
  21. Advance Notice:- Friday 19th May BBC 4 9.00pm - Roy Orbison One of the Lonely Ones 10.00pm - Roy Orbison & Friends - A Black and White Night 11.00pm - The Everly Brothers: Harmonies from Heaven. I'll post a reminder next Friday as well
  22. Jill have a look at this site with photos of Lenton Street http://www.picturethepast.org.uk/frontend.php
  23. In a map I've got Lenton Street was opposite Selhurst Street on Hyson Green (think it was maybe were the Asda store is now.)
  24. I have a book about Nottinghamshire in which it states "Nottingham experienced a frightening earthquake in AD1110, the first to be recorded in England"
  25. I heard on tv this morning (but heard before as well) - "That being said".
