  1. Radio 1 have censored “faggot” and “slut” from the Pogues /Kirsty Macoll Fairytale of New York for this year, after having played it in it's original form millions of times since it's release in 1987. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/nov/19/fairytale-of-new-york-pogues-censored-radio-1-radio-2
  2. Well, the Committee has gone sat down and had a meeting. They consumed lots of tea and biscuits and mulled over the problem. Then someone had a Brianwave,, why don't we call the Victoria shopping Centre, Victoria Centre so that's what they're going to do. Then they all had another cup of tea and some biscuits and went on their way, happy that they haven't spent thousands on consultants to tell them the obvious. https://www.nottinghampost.com/news/nottingham-news/intu-branding-taken-down-victoria-4734056?fbclid=IwAR1Scyk9FcON8B3TS-dV4ABrXrO76DS_-C83X2OZLKE8J-QGzLkCW78QFL0
  3. I'd have said the whole building excluding the Theatre as it is the shape of a Quadrant (ish) Although this map labels the whole frontage The Quadrant.
  4. Where they cross further down the canal, Hooters is up on the left of the picture https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.946215,-1.1396975,3a,75y,310.65h,84.27t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sxdXgI-xps66Nz1Xjhz7wlw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  5. Canal towpath near Low level station. Gas pipes, that run down the towpath under the rail bridge up to the road bridge at Eastcroft and across the canal to London road and exactly to where ,, don't know. Probably from when Eastcroft gas works site was there and the North sea pipeline was joined into the network at that point. I spotted the pipes on Google the other week when looking at the bridge and towpath crossover, there are markers along the towpath showing the pipeline location.
  6. Phil,, you may be looking at this the wrong way around, chicken and egg etc. It may be that the Vale has humidity / temperature etc that turns out is ideal for mould to propogate and the cheese producers discovered that, hence cheese making became popular there.
  7. Similar view before the bushes were cut down to allow the Artist(s) room to paint. Note the shadow of the Google pedestrian camera, roll the image up and it shows a view down onto the camera person. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.9379642,-1.1555005,3a,90y,65.28h,63.78t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sAF1QipNXOi-_O_YNgSemECoOpDT1ZWdML4R48hisjnIB!2e10!7i5376!8i2688
  8. Re Missing persons, total numbers were limited due to Covid restrictions, there were very few Ambassadors, the ones that were there represented several of the missing ones. No masks but everyone had a mark to stand on to ensure distancing.
  9. B-K On this link download 6.4.7 (7.0.3 looks to be still under development), no mention of payment. https://www.libreoffice.org/ You may have to change the operating system to Windows (32bit),, unless you know you've got (64bit)
  10. B-K, was this the Bus Depot, if so it's Nottm City homes depot now. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.9682164,-1.213651,3a,75y,22.37h,87.53t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sp3iby4yE_6qP8vBxvVGo8Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  11. And didn't have instant access to accurate mapping, so lost track of exactly where the house was in relation to the new Pub. I assume the junction was widened, Island put in, ring road started, council houses built and the pub built all around the same time. (maybe not in that order)
  12. All they have to do now is keep it the same whilst allowing foreigners into the Country.
  13. The Theme from Live and Let Die (Paul Mcartney + ) sticks in my memory,, but only because my youngest Son used to watch the film over and over and over and over again. I ended watching it a few times.
  14. Looking at the spacing between no.4 and no.6 then no.2 would probably have been very close to the front of the Pub. Can't remember where I got this or it's year, but the Island is still an Island so it's a good few years ago
