Also watched the Strictly introductory programme last night. Not watched the series for a few years now. Looks like it's going to be a good season!

Awoke this morning with tea on my mind. so who can tell me: What was the price of a quarter pound pack of tea (Brooke Bond, Typhoo, or similar will do) in 1960, please?

Ben will be along in a bit, he'll know exactly how much,where they were picked,who picked the tips,who packed them and no doubt who used to nick them

Auntie Emily of Garden Street had a tea strainer and a slop bowl with her China tea service. She wouldn't entertain tea bags. Newfangled nonsense!

I don't ever remember drinking coffee until I married 1967 and then only occasionally.

I think that would be camp. ( you can take the girl out of Gedling )

I still use a tea strainer for some tea ben.

Me dad would only drink loose tea,a spoonful in the tea strainer and poured boiling water over it, at work he had one of them tea strainer spoons,put a spoonful of tea in it close it up and put in the cup/mug,pour boiling water over it and there you go, I think someone posted a picture of that type of spoon tea strainer some time ago, I remember me mam buying some tea bags for him once,sometime in the 60's, he wouldn't touch them,she had to cut them all open and empty the tea in the caddy

When I was young, a neighbour bought tea bags for the first time. Her husband, not understanding what you did with them, carefully cut the corner from each bag and put the tea into the caddy.

Sent a player off after 48 SECONDS today.  Most horrendous two footed tackle, he says to me: "You can't send me off in the first minute". I replied it doesn't matter if its the first or the last minute, if the tackle has the potential to break your opponent's leg. Off you go".

Only got sent off once in over three decades of playing,,it was at Wilford lane about 1970,,very bad tackle dont know what made me do it,,after the game apologised to the other player and we shook hands,

   Lucky for me i knew the ref,from old bestwood days,,(george off Teviot road) he didnt make the sending off official,,good old days and flexible rules,

IF i was a ref today deepdene boy.."" I'd be sending players off right left and centre for swearing and spitting,, we swore yes, but quietly,certainly not in front of women and kids,,as for spitting it was only to spit blood or sometimes teeth,, eeeh when i were a lad,,lol

I still fail to see why refs rarely take action re shirt pulling, wrestling in the box, and gaining ground at throw ins. The World Cup referring was mainly deplorable. Some penalty areas resembled a rugby match.

As a rider to my previous comments re. teabags, have you ever looked at the contents of one and compared it with loose tea? Dust and what looks like floor sweepings best describes the contents of a teabag - which explains the sludge you often get at the bottom of your cup when drinking bagged tea rather than leaf tea.

Great stuff Ben, so good to have you posting frequently again :biggrin:

 

One of our 7 month old cats (Samson)went awol on Sat evening. All day yesterday his brother (Panto 2nd) kept going out to look for him, returning regularly to be reassured by us. He was obviously upset and would not eat. This morning, in walks Samson totally unaware about the worry he caused his brother and Mrs PP. Not seen a bird in the garden since these two started going outside :(

Felt good on the rowing machine this morning. Nice easy session watching telly. Harder session yesterday and tomorrow. Can't do hard/brisk sessions every day these days.
