  1. I did very much the same Ww. The East Leake Buses were favourites, possibly Renowns?, the window behind the driver curved down and I could see everything he did. I think I've said before a mystery to me was how he knew the number of turns on the steering wheel he needed to get round corners. I thought he must be very clever to remember. Sometimes the seat was occupied so the curve on the seat handrail became a pretend steering wheel and I knew from the engine sound just when he was going to change gear.
  2. I think that's the first time I've read of someone who actually enjoyed their time 'in care', most relate horror stories of poor conditions and mistreatment. Glad you survived george and welcome to the forum...
  3. Not sure we have many Afro-American immigrants, did you mean Africans or black people in general?
  4. Seems to be the way of things, it was the same with my hand. Ripley hospital diagnosed it and prescribed cauterizing but could'nt do it. Told to make appointment with GP who also couldn't do it, they had to make me an appointment at Derby.

  9. Google it BK there's quite a few YT clips...
  10. The real scary thing is driving the car whilst standing outside and controlling it with my smart phone, shudder to think what would happen if I dropped the phone...
  11. He well deserves the nickname 'nasty' and to be honest that's all I've ever thought of him..
  12. Along with the great British distance runners Zola Bud... Mohamed Muktar Jama Farah... footballer Owen Hargreaves... The list goes on... how about Bradley Wiggins? he's as British as they come but is actually Belgian! If they want to play for us good on 'em I say.
  13. That's a fairly major quoting sessionfor you RR have you had some sort of epiphany? I've actually never heard of Zoot Money. The only zoot I know of is a zoot suit from way back when...
