    I see Freedman's gone. 13 months - quite good for a Forest manager.

    I think that sums it up pretty well Ben!

    It just takes far too long to get through the thick heads of the people who purport to run this country. No one seems to have an ounce of dynamism. I could never have run a business the way this country is operated.

    Yes, l carry one in my car emergency bag, which never seems to get put in the car!

    No, one of his interests is archery. That's how he got the drone down from the poplar tree! I now have the parts in stock to replace the damaged ones on our next visit!

    I think they will have to ban the flying of drones. Because their operation requires minimal skill they have fallen into the hands of the irresponsible. It’s a bit like cars really but it’s too late to ban them now!

    I agree. A medium to large sized drone is a serious piece of kit but sadly, because of the ease of use compared to the skills required to fly a R/C aircraft its become a childs’ toy. I can see much more stringent laws coming along. It’s a pity because used responsibly they can bring visual access for inspection to places which normally require a ladder. They can also spy on neighbours sunbathing - I foresee many problems!

    Even when you are not flying commercially there are strict CAA rules that must be obeyed. They are published for all to see. If you are flying commercially you must get a licence.

    If you do you would have to get permission from the CAA anyway. I’m not anti drones, I bought my son one for Christmas and I’m looking at buying one for myself but it’s important to know the flying rules to stay out of trouble.

    Mobile phones in class!

    I was ace on a slide rule back in the 60's. I still have a play with it just to keep my hand in. I've chucked the log tables away though!
  16. I knew a Frank Mee back in the 60’s. He would have been early 30’s. His mother was a retired nursing sister/matron. I think he went on to be a PT teacher. I believe he was from Bulwell. Nice guy. Ring any bells?

    And now we’ve got super gonorrhea to contentend with. When I say ‘we’ obviously I don’t include myself.

    It might cure your cough! I remember the nurse saying ‘I’m supposed to be wiping the surgeon’s brow, not yours!

    Yes, once perfection has been achieved where can you go from there? There are two little Mayfield’s though. - not so little now!

    The last time, many years ago, when I went to the doctors’ for antibiotics for a sore throat I came out with an appointment for a vasectomy. I think he was getting kick back from the surgeon on all the patients he could forward to him!

    Drones at Gatwick

    I’m surprised that with all the press present, presumably with high powered cameras, we haven’t yet seen a picture of one of the so called drones.

    The Lost City.

    Stag had a factory at Hucknall but the Head office and the other manufacturing site was on Haydn Rd. On the corner of Quorn Rd. There was no fire at the Haydn Rd. premises during the 25 years I worked in the area. I do remember seeing the fire at Stanley’s, Bulwell, though out of my window.

    There are at least 11 subjects that come under the classification of 'humanities' so it requires a collective name to summarise them.
