  1. Hi DJ. I had an on going itch for 18months plus Mainly around waist but also knees fore arms hands and armpits. Went to the docs and he diagnosed crabs! WTF??! No chance! So he reluctantly put scabies on my notes. But had treatment for scabies. After 8 months and numerous visits and different docs i had a blood test at qmc, and also a skin biopsy. It turns out my midnight scratching and rashes are caused by a gluten intolerance, (celiac). Changed my diet to gluten free which was an eye opener and slowly now seeing the benefits of my health improving. Without going into detail re the symptoms, I'd recommend at least googling the condition. Problem is, although supermarkets and eateries now cater for gluten free, its become a fad diet whereby people just go gluten free to lose weight, but mine is a recognised medical condition. Hope I've helped. Martin.

    Vanished shops

    Yes I think that musty be it, thank you. Probably just a large empty void now.

    Vanished shops

    Not sure if this is the correct thread to ask on, but i'm after info on a cafe that used to be next to Woolworths opposite C and A, a small doorway entrance and downstairs to what I assume was underneath Woolies or WH Smith? Was quite a large place with a 60's / 70's decor. And what is it now?
  4. Arthur and Elizabeth's (A and E) on Aspley Lane is a nice one, in my opinion.

    Hucknall Highway.

    Seem to be a few mentions of Hedley Wright's. Was this a well known place? Only we own the premises now. Relatively new place I assume but used we used to be on the opposite double corner, quite a bit older that one.

    Sir John Peace's wiki page makes for interesting reading for anyone in that sector of work. I've a varied connection with him through the 70's and 80's. He's now Lord Lieutenant of Nottingham amongst other duties. It's just that I drove past Expierians building today and noticed its actually called 'The Sir John Peace Building', and wondered if in 50 years time as the building is being demolished people will be questioning who he was.

    I'm useless at street names (would make a fortune as a taxi driver!) But I've just checked, I've definitely got the right place.

    Anybody know of the hidden wartime building just next to the garage on watnall rd ? It was featured on George Clarke's tv programme. Did it ever get renovated? Just interested in it as I think about it every time i drive past the entrance.

    Back on to Birdcage. I worked a few Saturdays in the 80's at a shop called 1860 (clothing and shoes), I'm sure it was dead opposite the place. ?

    Whose number was 482482? Seem to remember Richard Briers doing the voice over.... "elephant, double elephant, half an elephant, twice". Also, been mentioned earlier, but the Coldseal Windows songs by a group that sounded like the wurzles. Seemed to have a new song every single week.

    Didn't realise we were talking about the same shop, although different premises.
