  1. Before the water sports centre was built at Holme Pierrepont we used to go swimming around there in the summer holidays.
  2. Nollick Ghennal as Blein Vie Noa. Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Hope you all have a great day.
  3. Ben, seems to be a lot of comments on football sites saying it was a waste of time and calling for a handicap system! Perhaps England should only play with 7 players or the smaller international clubs should have their own competition (winner gets to play with the big boys)... gotta laugh. IMO England just did what they had to do and until FIFA grow some this is how it will continue.
  4. @DJ360 The joys of retirement! I make sure I have plenty of days like that.
  5. It's just to let you see how the other half lives...
  6. Yeah, but you can bet there will be something new soon from the media to stir up the gullible.
  7. Yes, his name was Bill. He passed away many years ago, 1978.
  8. Thanks for the history of the Company. I reckon my father worked there many years. As a young child he would take me with him whilst travelling through Lincolnshire and the coast (Skegness etc.) I was thirteen when he left (made redundant?) in 1967. My father went on to manage a newsagents in Bingham for a few monghs before he bought his own shop in Aspley in '68.
  9. My parents bought a newsagents in 1967 and I remember when decimalisation came in in the 70's that 20 Players No.10 were marked up at 19 1/2 new pence.
  10. Matt Baker used to be a pretty good gymnast...
  11. Car terminally expired on Sunday, got the local garage to check it out today and it's definitely dead. Rang around to get a hire car for a few days until I get a new car and they're very busy now we've reopened to tourists. Nothing available until Friday. Eldest son has two cars and has just let me know I can use one of them. Rang hire car place to cancel the car for Friday and got the feeling they think I'm doing it on purpose to just annoy them. Not in a good mood now!
  12. Had to ask the other half how long ago we ate in the dining room. She reckons 7 christmases ago when we invited the family round for a boxing day get together. We found out that having 16 people in the dining room just doesn't work! I seem to remember that at least half the visitors joined me in the lounge to eat around the big table in there. Slightly chaotic boxing day after we had drinks. Never again.
