  1. Yet to change it's name...

    That is the cleanest I've seen the front of the Bendigo, when I lived on the hollows 40years ago it was a right tip!!
  2. Shop/Business Names

    A friend of ours has a horse shoeing business called Only Foals and Horse's.
  3. Ice Cream sellers

    A friend of ours when we were living in Norfolk used to tell his two daughters that the ice cream man played the chimes to let folks know that he had sold out of ice cream.
  4. Nottingham Festival 1970

    Your right there, it was pretty murky, a sort of dark green. Not quite zero viz but it was good training. The pollution side of it is just the same as when you go white water rafting at holme pierpoint!! And at the end of the day, nowhere near as bad as the ganges!!

    No worries Melissa, I hope to be at the next meet,so should be able to put faces to names. Pity I couldn't get to do at hucknall but had some pressing things to attend to.
  6. Nottingham Festival 1970

    I used to do a bit of scuba diving many years back,and have dived the Trent a few times. I can't ever remember the Trent being more than 15ft deep at normal levels. Some places near Clifton bridge were shallower than that!.
  7. Chulla

    It was a wonderful service, and a fine eulogy from his friend David. It made me feel as though I knew Dave personally. It was also good to meet Kath, although would have liked it to be under better circumstances. Hopefully I will get to meet more of you all at one of the meets. R.I.P. Chulla.
  8. An old school friend of mine, when we were at hunto school, lived on Shakespeare villas, they were grand houses.
  9. Nottm At War 1939-1945.

    Without seeing the Head an blocking I couldn't say for sure,but the location is near enough.
  10. Bottom end of Woodborough Road

    The new Westminster aka the wessy was at the end of St Ann's well rd near Ransom rd, was a shippos pub. The one at the end of the Chase was the Gate, that was a home ale's pub.
  11. I think the number plate told the pump attendant that the car needed filling with petrol!!. My father bought his first new car from Sharp's, a 1967 Vauxhall Viva SL 90, reg- PRR 97F. What a load of rubbish that was, no end of problems from start to finish.
  12. Trinity square

    Phill, do you mean the 3.5 litre sd1? They didn't do a 3 ltr!. They did a 2.3, 2.6 and a 3.5 v8.
  13. Clox

    Anyone know why we still keep altering the clocks?, always seemed to be pointless, but maybe that's just me!!
  14. RAOB The Buffs.

    Not sure Rog, never been in the Bull's Head.
  15. I'll go with Freda avenue, had a mate lived in a flat there, it was a nightmare in winter.
  16. Was that from the top of the flagpole?, painted it in 76. When it was a steel one, not like today's fiber glass version.
  17. RAOB The Buffs.

    You want to try the folk's in Norfolk, 30 years there and still couldn't work them out. Mind you, when they think that incest is a game for all the family, what do you expect !!
  18. Clox

    Do you have to turn up early in winter and late in spring?
  19. RAOB The Buffs.

    He looks like he's been told, he's got to get a tram back home!!
  20. Indian Wee

    Anyone with a bitch, the canine version, will get similar results if their urine is collected and watered down. Don't use neat, it's much too strong, see what it does two the grass!!
  21. Chulla

    My most sincere condolences, from my short time on this site, I can honesty say that he seemed to be such a genuine and knowledgeable person. He will be greatly missed by all. R.I.P. Chulla.
  22. Where is This?

    Bang on plantfit, it was the fox and grapes aka pretty windows that used to have a license to open at daft o clock in the morning.
  23. How's your day?

    Don't go by tram nonna, all them gadgets would probably cause a power failure
  24. RAOB The Buffs.

    Damm, missed out again, don't get back for another week!! Don't even need to sprain my ankle, its full of screw's and plates to start with, or is that cheating?
  25. How's your day?

    Who enforced that curfew? I think the war is over!!
