  1. And other gears on some makes, remember having to learn to double de clutch. Rod operated brakes pre hydraulic, can you imagine?
  2. After forgetting my wallet one night and having to rush back to our hotel to collect it on my daughter's advice I decided to set up Apple Pay on our phones. My wife loves it! Security is by face recognition, once set up no pin nor account numbers are required and will allow her to buy whatever, whenever and accepts her instructions no matter the mood. I think that I've just made myself dispensable.
  3. DJ, Stents and angiograms were available in 1996 not sure about routine though. After a few problems in 96/97 I had numerous ECGs, monitors and an exercise tolerance stress test. Nothing was revealed and I was told to forget about it and just enjoy my life. A few weeks later I was back in dock and a wise experienced cardiologist decided to carry out an angiogram, a quadruple by pass was required. Unfortunately in 1997 the waiting list was 12 months for heart surgery even though my prognosis was not good. Luckily I had private health and it was done the following week.
  4. I knew that Phil, that's why I made the comment.
  5. 60s Victors were possibly the most notorious rust buckets ever, did you have a new car for each lesson? The car I learned to drive in was Ben Siddon's workshop runaround, a well used Jowett Javelin.
  6. Top left behind the A40 - looking at the wraparound screen I think possibly a 60s Victor.
  7. BK It does take a bit of work but you can book Waitrose up to 10 days in advance, currently there are lots of slots 15th to 17th March in my area. To secure the slot I add a couple of bottles which takes me over the £40 and then amend the order the day before delivery. I've not been in a supermarket since March last year.
  8. I have a Waitrose delivery once or twice a week, got one this afternoon at 3.00pm. Surely being higher ranking than myself BK you are entitled.
  9. Not so Lizzie, my father was born a Prince, I am a Prince and my aunt was born a Prince.
  10. My cousin married a Viscount and Baron, her mother was born a Prince. Does that get me in?
  11. They had to be issued because they didn't have masks at all. I and several people people around me were wearing masks and were not required to change them. Just one person was asked to replace their mask as the one they had on did not meet NHS requirements.
  12. No not me Lizzie, I had my jab early last week at Kings Meadow. If he looked like me in my profile he wasn't old enough for a jab. My wife had her jab yesterday at Kings Meadow and I kept her company in the quite lengthy queue, I was amazed at the number of people who had to be issued with masks before entering the building.
  13. We got a new car last year just before lockdown, fantastic fuel consumption, we're getting just over 4 months to the gallon.
  14. Beekay There was definitely a fair held around the market/Bulwell bogs area, I'm not absolutely clear but I would think 1958/59 ish. Walking back to Broxtowe, just beyond the bogs I seem to remember an air raid shelter which was well used when the fair was around.
