Walked along Gregory Boulevard virtually every day of my young life, Trogg. Before I could walk, I was pushed along it in my pram or pushchair.   I think back to when I couldn't keep up with

I was another of Acton's victims. Nasty little man. Someone  (another victim) described him as a psychotic leprechaun - he was short of stature and did have red hair so that description fits. Act

Thank goodness my dentist is my BIL. hes the only dentist that I frequented that can fill and drill a tooth without an anasthetic ( spelling) Hes so good , goes for refresher and updates all the time. He also has the most uptodate equipment. He now specialises in cosmetic dentistry. A few years ago at a his wedding , a neice tripped on the long tablecloth at her table and smashed her two front teeth. He went to the rescue straightaway and by evening he had given her two front teeth crowns.

Yes dentists are also very expensive here too but tell me what isnt. After various discussions the comment is...

"Well We are in Italy"

says it all

Russian driving is both spectacular and dangerous. I have seen nothing like it anywhere. In Moscow the traffic can grind to a standstill on some directions and the drivers just drive on the road into oncoming traffic on the opposite lane. 

 

Traffic lights are a suggestion to most Russian drivers. 

 

I can recall driving in southern Russia in a blizzard. I could not see more than about 10 meters. Overtaking me was a saloon going about three times the speed I was driving at, with a bus full of kids behind, the bus driver honking the horn for the driver to pull over and let him past.

It just reminded me.  Johnny Preston had a jazz band.  He called it Johnny Preston's Upper Set.  :).    I don't know where they played but maybe some of you heard them.

 

Johnny Preston ... a man with a very colourful lifestyle.

I didn't know that, Bamber.  Tell us more.  He's probably long gone now.  I know he was a good few years older than me back in the sixties.  He seemed like good dentist.

Bamber.  I know there was some kind of ruckus.  It even made it to the Evening Post back in the day.  I lost track of him after that because I moved to the other side of town and then emigrated.  So I don't know how it all worked out.

That is a rip-off for such a pathetic news sheet. As a subscriber I get The Times for £1.20 a day which includes the online version. Online’s ok but I do like a proper newspaper on the breakfast table. After use we cut it into squares and string it for toilet paper.

Actually I do have a flexible inspection camera where I could, if so desired, look at my rear for traces of printing ink. It might be worth putting it to the test. I could always use a copy of ‘The Sun’. I’m told that it shines out of my backside.

The Post hasn't been printed in Nottingham for donkey's. First it moved to Derby and nowadays they print overnight in Birmingham - yesterday's news tomorrow. Well, Reach (owners of the paper) have announced the closure of the Birmingham printworks and the Post will be coming from either Oldham, Middlesbrough or Watford - yesterday's news the day after tomorrow.

 

With circulation now so low it cannot be too long before the Post goes weekly or vanishes altogether.

Their online news synopsis is dreadful and never up to date. It has been a third rate newspaper appealing to the lowest common denominator for many years. 
Our local weekly newspaper, the Newark Advertiser, is now owned by a national group and has gone downhill regarding local news in a similar way. We still take it, hoping my name will appear, but I guess that will be in the obituaries!

From today's Bread and Lard Bugle West Bridgford Wire.

 

West Bridgford drugs dealing and ASB – Operation Alaska nominals dealing drugs and committing ASB on West Bridgford Beats including Edwalton, Compton Acres and Trent Bridge – Owned by West Bridgford Neighbourhoods, Rushcliffe Reacher and Response teams.

 

Obviously an extract from a Notts Police press release, but you would have thought that the force's press office would have taken the time to translate it out of police-jargon into something approaching standard English. 10-4.
