  1. It seems that there are a number of cases of miserablegititis going around Notts at the moment. If people want to brighten up their homes with Christmas lights then good on them. Have a look at the faces of the kids when they see them, that alone makes it worthwhile. Some bright lights and well done displays surely brighten up the dark gloomy days of a UK winter. Here it is the exact opposite, many decorate their houses with lights and displays but the littlies have to stay up until after nine to see the full effect. After almost 50 years here I still can't get used to goin

  3. Blidworth Miners Welfare Social Club is still going, unfortunately not the magnificent building that used to be at the top of the hill when coming from Mansfield but still a thriving club, as is Rainworth Miners Welfare still in the original building when the pit was working.
  4. There is nowt wrong with Jacobs Creek it's good for the oiks at a BBQ. you can get their cheaper range at AU$8 for Shiraz or Cab Sav at the moment. their Double Barrel range is AU$20 and is not half bad
  5. Same question, answer - "there and back to see how far it is
  6. With the UK having had 46,807 new cases yesterday and effectively "fully opened up" and 80% of the population over 12 fully vaccinated and a whopping 24% having had a booster shot. Here in South Australia we are facing our "opening up" day, 23rd of November with a great deal of trepidation. We have had no cases for quite a while and have today just one active case in quarantine yet our stupid premier, hell bent on being a toady to Australia's worst ever prime minister is allowing our borders to open up to Victoria which has 1200+ cases a day and NSW with 250+ cases. I just don't understan

  9. Graham, Welcome to the site. Those songs brought back some long forgotten memories of music classes at both junior and secondary school back in the 50s and 60s. You can't beat a sea shanty for a good singalong
  10. Affer, great shots, they would make brilliant jigsaws
  11. Bit late on this one but doing Mechanical Engineering you could not really get along without one. I had a Thornton Comprehensive slide rule. The one thing it did teach me was "order of magnitude", where to put the decimal point or how many hundreds, thousands etc were in the answer. It came to the fore many years later when mentoring some young engineers doing some stress/strain calculations, one came to me with an answer that was so obviously wrong and I told him straight away he had made an error. I did not know if the numbers were right but I knew the order of magnitude was wrong. Move
  12. It really does make me wonder how the essentially same team can completely turn things round in such a short time. Whatever Cooper is doing we can only hope that he keeps doing it. It would be good to have a season without relegation fears and some hope of a play off spot.
  13. After it all going wrong for so long it looks like at last that it might be starting to go right for the Reds, lets hope so. Not looking good for the Stags as they are now firmly in the relegation zone.
  14. Glad you got it sorted nonnaB but in all things business beware of the 'Three F's" Family, Friends and Fools
  15. I did hear that an ice cream van ran the generator for the freezer on reclaimed chip shop oil, you could always tell when he was around because of the flock of seagulls following him.
