  1. The R.D stands for Rural District, if this helps to throw any light on the matter.
  2. Not strictly a hymn, but Jerusalem takes some beating
  3. Stavertongirl, I'm with you, loved the marzipan ones. It is virtually impossible to find any chocolate assortment these days that has a marzipan one. Unless somebody out there knows differently.
  4. Saturday dinner was always bacon, eggs, and tarrantella tomatoes on fried bread.
  5. Always preferred the B side of Urban Spaceman., which was Canyons of your Mind.
  6. Farewell to the Urban Spaceman , who passed away on Sunday 29th December 2019
  7. The hardest watch of the night was Doddie Weir. I am not ashamed to say I was in floods of tears.
  8. If grey squirrels were eradicated, you would see a return of our native red squirrels.
  9. Grey squirrels are VERMIN and should be treated as such.
  10. Is there anybody that played club cricket in the 80s that didn't at some time replicate Bob's iconic run up?
  11. Both Clive James and Jonathan Miller would have made fabulous dinner guests, and Gary Rhodes would have ensured the food was excellent. The world is a poorer place for the loss of ll three of them.
  12. You might have done on 55s between October 65 and September 68, but I would have been a babe in arms and then a toddler.
  13. BK, it would have been from September 68 until November 73, when my Dad brought a car.
  14. RR, smashing photo. Brings back many memories. The Co-op had a bakery just inside the front door and on Saturday mornings I would be treated to a sausage roll before we caught the 53 to Crown Island on our way to visiting my Nan in Bilborough. (We caught the 60 from the Crown up to Burnside Green). I can also remember my parents being a three piece suite from Ideal Homes. I think that the next shop to the left, just out of shop would have been Fourbouys or perhaps Booths greengrocers.
  15. The early Notts and Derby AEC trolleybuses had a dummy radiator fitted. Certainly not bi-mode just electricity.
