  1. Add Parallels Desktop app, about £30, to a Mac which then enables you to run Windows side by side.
  2. Thanks for the link of the bus routes Cliff Ton it helped unlock a few memories for me and confirms in my mind where the 18 terminus was. I was born in my aunts' house on Longmead Drive 75 years ago this week. When I was about 10 I used to catch the 18 bus from Trinity Square to Longmead and can remember clearly now sitting on the top deck and looking in the churchyard. During the journey there was a water works/pumping station somewhere near the junction of Hucknall Road and Haydn Road. The route then carried on to Edwards Lane and turned off into Alderton Road, at the crossroad with Longmead Drive it turned right and the terminus was on the right a couple of hundred yards up opposite a block of two shops one a grocer and the other a greengrocer. Another memory was sitting close to a heater on the bus, it was a large chrome circular unit bolted to the bulkhead, fantastic as I lived in a world where my dad's cars didn't have heaters.
  3. It looks like we're going to have to resort to online shopping owing to restrictions applied by the major stores. ASDA 2 hand sanitisers, and a 4 pack of toilet rolls. TESCO 1 hand sanitiser. 500g of rice and a 4 pack of toilet rolls. WAITROSE 1 lobster, 6 quails eggs and 100g of Foie Gras. ALDI 1 MIG welder, 1 pink sports bra, 2 trumpets and 1 wetsuit.
  4. Thanks RR I think I'll investigate for next season.
  5. RR, Since the restart I've watched all the Forest matches on my TV through iFollow Forest app. A code was issued to Forest season card holders in lieu of a refund, allowing access to all remaining matches this season.You can watch on any WiFi device I open it on a laptop and connect to my TV with an HDMI cable, commentary is by the the Radio Nottingham team, Hodge, Fray etc. I think that anyone can pay on a match by match basis £10. Make sure you've got a good signal and it's spot on.
  6. Just booked a slot with Sainsbury's, at the time of booking slots were available Wednesday,Thursday, Friday and Saturday next week. Just checked again slots available Wednesday evening only.
  7. Just glanced in the sky 20/30 satellites in line rapidly moving West to East or are they planes with our medical stuff.
  8. Jill, Cliff Ton Considering the proximity of our ancestors to each other it would be a good bet that they knew each well, perhaps even friends. My granddad was a keen gardener and between 35 Stockhill and my other granddad's house on Thorndale I spent enjoyable times with chickens, and gorging on gooseberries and blackcurrants before being treated to a visit to the original Lord Nelson on Percy street.
  9. My granddad and his 2nd wife Rose M Burns lived at number 35 until his death in 1952. My mother lived there in 1938 when she married my father who lived at 5 Thorndale.
  10. Yes it was originally Bennetts. I used to help my dad in my school holidays to repair used cars prior to sale but by this time late 1950s it was Hopcrofts Garage. The basement held probably 15 to 20 cars and had small repair facilities, Bill Hopcroft later injected some cash into Notts County F.C. and helped save it from extinction.
  11. Brian Clough arranged for all the players to receive Toyota cars in 1979 does that help?
  12. Margie, So glad it cheered her up it was very good that's why I can remember even though it must have been around 30 years ago. A bit more than a guess but not absolutely sure about this but I think she said it was one of her or her mother's favourites. Now what did I have for my tea a couple of hours ago?
  13. Many years ago we went to St.eulalia, Ibiza, our holiday rep was a tallish slim blonde who told us the same about her mother. During our stay we later saw her in a rep's show or maybe it was a karaoke where she performed a brilliant rendition of 'Perfect' I wonder if it is the same lady?
  14. Sir John Borlase Warren was born in Stapleford in 1753 and his family lived there for about 300 years, the Canning Circus pub is the impostor. Prior to the Wetherspoons JBW there was The Warren Arms across the road for about 300 years. To complete the link Marsden's shop at the Roache was owned by David Attenborough's baker and grocer grandfather back in the early 1900s.
  15. He was escorted to to his chair, he saw Lola dancing there And when she finished he called her Rover
