Floor start buttons on Minis. In the beginning they had a large button on the floor to start the engine.

I still have the premium bonds with face value £1 and £2 that my grandfather and his sister bought for me when they first came out. Now we get the electronic statement my husband said I should shred them. I said no as they are a bit of social history and they were gifts from those I no longer see.

My husband has £4 worth of Premium Bonds, bought in the 60s. He won £50 soon after we were married in mid 70s, that was around a week's wages in those day. Nothing since, understandably I suppose.

I topped my holding up to the maximum of £40,000 3 months ago and since then I've had £75 in March, £75 in April and £25 this month. Half of those winning bonds are the new ones.

If they're still in your Mum's name you'll never win a prize FLY as they're not transferable.

The return on Premium Bonds as an ' investment ' is pathetic, the chances of winning more than £100 as remote as the lottery. They make little economic sense. I frequently tell this my missus who has a very large holding. She gets a £25 here and there but refuses to get rid, because ' one day that million's coming.' ..... Ooh look, a flying pig! :wacko:

I have a £2 premium bond which is about twenty five years old and never won any money with it.

I was just reminiscing about Sweets that we used to sell in our shop in the 1970s, that you don't see now. I looked up Weekend Chocolates, and found this list of a few Chocolates that I had forgotton about.http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/features/history/articles/11110530.10_lost_chocolate_classics___which_do_you_miss_most_/

#2745 :No matter how hard I tried, I could never get rid of the moss that grew on the woodwork of my Morris Traveller. Great car was that - never needed to unlock the door....just lift it and pull it off the latch. In winter it would always start provided that I used the starting handle and not the battery.

Remember the days when a song was popular without the accompanying semi-pornographic video?
