I listen to "Always" and I'm thinking of fabulous Mrs WW, from happy courting days to the sweetest honeymoon, through all the years, all the sunsets, all the sunrises, all the hard times, near disaste

Hey, Ayup Ben, pleased to see you back and sorry you’ve had health issues but hope you settle into your new home quickly.  Did you get out before the rent man called?   Just hope that a few of th

Music still good in the 70s.......I moved to Peterborough and this song reminds me of Annabelle's night club (the only one in Peterborough) 

            Met ex Forest man John Barnwell in there one night........said he was looking for players.........lol

I did enjoy laughing at Only Fools and Horses but I much preferred Nicholas Lyndhurst in Goodnight Sweetheart a program with a very unique story line. For me Trigger, (Roger Lloyd-Pack) was the stand out in OF&H. Just wish we could watch them again, some episodes are available on YT.

YT ha hundreds of episodes on LOTSW too

Sorry Ben, Can't give you a like for that one as far as I am concerned apart from some notable classic exceptions the 70's was a lost decade of decent music when compared to the 60's. There was far too much mush and I did not enjoy much of the  Glam Rock. Here are all the UK number 1 hits of the seventies have a listen and see what you think.

In the late 50's it was football, football and football for me Ben and for a few short weeks cricket.

Sorry Enigma, that is a really woeful version of the John Denver classic a pretty poor attempt at Sinatraising a great song. John Denvers' version with Cass Elliot is great but the best by far is by Peter Paul and Mary.
