Whatever happened to......?

Recommended Posts

What ever happened to?...

Looking after our armed forces, who have , were and are prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice. Fully supporting Gus Hales stand..his ilk should be at the front of the 'Help Queue'.

Some Quango's via Children in Need and Red nose Day avail of cash that would be better directed to those who have contributed much more than paypacket stoppages.

The news fakers think donning a poppy on TV is enough...broken Britain.

Would you not realize it's sticky when you peeled it of the paper it was stuck too :crazy:

 

Whatever happened to Baby Jane? That's what I want to know?

Going in the opposite direction to "Whatever happened to..."

 

I've noticed that Eileen H has returned after an absence of some time.  Welcome back Eileen, and maybe you can encourage a few others as well.

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.

Good to see you back Eileen, hope you’re keeping well and well done completing your Masters degree.

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!

Yes, and you were in trouble if you kept your vest on under your shirt. You had to put your hands under the hot tap to bring the feeling back. Softies these days.
