  1. I doubt it would be the High School; being posh they played rugger. Even us at Henry Mellish Grammar played rugger. The only grammar school I knew that played soccer was Bluecoat. Maybe Mundella played soccer also?
  2. Some you will recognise the name of 'The Raleigh Cycle King' at Netherfield. Just been told that my old friend Graham has died, aged 83, in a care home in Harrogate. At least he died in the luxury he worked hard to attain.
  3. Printers are so relatively cheap these days, it's the inks that can be pricey. I buy mine online from Internet Inks in Keyworth. Inexpensive, top quality and next day delivery. The cartridges outlast the originals as well. No rejection problems when inserted.
  4. The last TV I bought was a Sony which was equipped for 3D viewing through special electronic glasses. What happened to 3D transmissions?
  5. I agree Col. Surround sound is just a 'cinema experience' and detracts from the purity of a real life performance when listening to music. Nobody sits in the middle of the orchestra pit.
  6. They usually take photo paper up to 300 gms according to my Canon spec. Photo papers are usually 150 to 200 gms.
  7. Paper or card grammage isn't usually a problem. The printer just needs to know the paper size and quality of print required and it handles the thickness itself. It's not a problem I've ever experienced in over 40 years of computer printers. I use a Canon but I have used Epson and HP in the past without problems.
  8. Do you want me to drive down? I have a slot in my diary in December.
  9. Read the ******* manual! Surely it came with instructions. If not they are online.
  10. Yes, I read that. Very embarrassing
  11. I bought myself a Lotus Elise for my 70th. Black though, so not flash. Had to go when I had to be helped of it. Very embarrassing at Cadwell Park race track of all places!
  12. I've just looked up 'men in red cars' and I feel ashamed to have been in that category. Silver's ok and my wife's is a tasteful black. Thank goodness I've come to my senses!
  13. My current car is silver. I'm starting to act my age now. No more pleasure for me.
  14. You just tell it in 'printer setup' in most printers.
  15. I always coveted an E Type but by the time I could get round to one it had evolved into the XJS and I was 40. It was a mechanical disaster over 3 years but it did look good in red with magnolia hide! I dipped into the Jag world again just over three years ago with an F Type. Again in bright red. That was returned to the dealership 8 times in three years and it only covered 12,000 miles. It was disposed of when the warranty expired. I did so want to own a British car but I must have reliability. .
  16. Still here. I thought I'd give it rest for a while!
  17. Sorry to see that the pews have gone. It looks like a theatre. Our village church has had a bar type counter installed for post service refreshments and now it looks like a fish and chip shop. If that's modern religion God help us!
  18. There's one at Hemswell Antiques at £135. Can be seen on line. Too expensive?
  19. I think we're all sitting around waiting for someone to say something controversial.
  20. I only do ride-ons. I would be there solely in an advisory capacity.
  21. That's right, it was. Like I said I've never been. I have frequented a few dodgy clubs in Paris though but I didn't realise they were dens of iniquity until I was inside.
  22. Is not that I haven’t got anything to do Barrie. With a few acres of agricultural land and garden it’s a problem to keep up with everything. At the end of the day there’s no financial return in it for me and that has been my lifelong motivation. What a sad life I’ve lived.
