  1. All I Have To Do Is Dream - The Everly Brothers
  2. Ben, I was lucky enough to see Derek Randall's innings in the Centenerary test the first year we came to Oz My first pick in the team would be Larwood to give 'em a bit of chin music. Then Boycott to make them earn their wickets not give them away Just seen the England "batting coach" interviewed on TV, he still thinks England can win! After that performance I wonder why he still has a job.
  3. England's batsmen would struggle to get runs against a local colliery welfare team Absolute rubbish batting. Hanging the bat out to dry and very little feet movement. who coaches this lot, don't even have to hit most of the balls they have been out to. Bring back Geoff Boycott
  4. A Teenager in Love - Dion and the Belmonts
  5. I see that Greene King is being sold to a Hong Kong gazillionaire for 2.7 billion pounds. If memory serves me correctly don't they brew Hardy and Hansons, the old Kimberley beers
  6. Thanks notty ash, knew it was an Escort but the Chrysler Alpine was after my time in Notts so I did not recognise it
  7. Phil, Some other puns from the site are :- "So he went off half-cocked?" -J.Petry "After this he will be definitely shooting blanks." -I.Titi "His barrel was shortened that day." -A.Yuan "Friends call him 'snubnose' now." "He's not half the man he used to be." -D.Webb "Clean up on Aisle 4." -M.Miller
  8. This one from the Darwin Awards website definitely could not pass his genes on (27 Nov 2018, Arizona) The Buckeye Police Department reports that a man accidentally shot his own sausage while shopping in the meat aisle at Walmart. Arizona law does not require a permit (nor a holster for that matter) to carry a firearm, so our hero felt free to carry his piece "commando-style" (unholstered) beneath his waistband. When the unholstered gun drifted down into his jeans, he reached in and pulled the trigger while repositioning his weapon. This loose cannon's low hanging fruit didn’t have a chance. Firearm supporters can add this event to the arsenal of ammunition against gun control. Guns really do make a difference.
  9. Radfordred Great photo of the bikes. Do you know what the car is in the immediate background?
  10. Oh! no, guess what? it's raining again, in an English summer, what a surprise!
  11. Agreed FLY2 Sandpaper1, Warner out yesterday Sandpaper 2, Bancroft just out Sandpaper Captain, Smith just come to the crease
  12. We need a new Larwood and Voce. Shout down the shaft of one of the local mines and up will pop a new England fast bowler. Oops no pits, no wonder we're short of bowlers.
  13. The heading of the thread got me to thinking of these stores in Mansfield. I can remember either a Farrands or Marsdens just off the corner of the market place at the top end of Church Street almost opposite the Police box. Others that have been mentioned on another site are opposite Broomhill School, Wood Street and Moor Street and I think on Sutton Road There was also a Marsdens at Wood'us I wonder if our Ben graced them with his presence
  14. Jill This should bring back some memories of Sunday lunchtime
