I'm the first to agree we need "banter" (whatever it is).  If the site was only about Nottingham and absolutely nothing else, it would become a bit academic and serious and only suitable for anoraks.

I completely agree with you CliffTon.  I still find this new set-up a real pain, having to scroll down looking for a topic I want to read and seeing pages of Word Games.   I used to spend a lot o

It is a pity that DJBrenton was not given counter arguments based on facts and research. It is called debate. He was just told to 'shut up' either because there was no counter arguments or because he

Hello! Great to be back. I'm enjoying browsing the site to catch up. I've spent the last couple of years with my head stuck in my laptop doing a Master's degree with the Open University. Finished this summer so I'm FREE! Sort of shuffling my feet and looking around at the world and wondering, 'Now what?'

The options at the moment are indoor hang gliding or extreme embroidery.

You haven't told us the subject of your degree.  Anything useful, or just something you never got round to in your earlier days ?

Nah! It was Creative Writing - aka making things up and writing them down.

 

Our eldest grandson has just achieved a good degree for 'Creative Writing' at Gloucester (based at Cheltenham).  He hasn't looked for a job using his qualification yet - I suggested journalism as that is a LOT of creative writing!  However he is working at the Co-op during the day to get a bit of money, also working for Deliveroo some evenings.   Great what a university education can get you.....

Whatever happened to Christmas Day Footy?

Looking at the picture, Ian, I am tempted to ask: "What happened to footy in the snow, rain, ice, etc.." It seems that matches are postponed for any but the finest of weathers these days!

I rember rugger at Mellish. A raw wind used to blow over the frosted field in the winter. Unlike soccer, rugger is very much a stop and start game with regular intervals for scrums and lineouts so there was lots of hanging around getting frozen. The games master would be wearing a thick overcoat with scarf and gloves. I hated it. Further up the school, when I had the option, I chose cross country running where at least you were moving all the time. I became school champion and was selected to run for the county. Not bragging!:biggrin:
