    Re: Women's Football

    Women even play Rugby and Boxing but for some reason society often assumes that they are unable to participate in sports that are prominently male for one reason or another, probably because it is...

    Re: Mop Top Hair Shop

    When I saw the picture, I thought that they looked like yellow pepper shakers!

    Re: 1970s advert

    The Fisherman's Friend adverts were a bit like that, although I think it was the Navy rather than the Army - they were in the latter half of the 1980s. Others that spring to mind were the series of...

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    One advert that was on in 1992 was one for Jaffa Cakes which had a very strange song on it - it had a very ethnic feel to it. when I started that End of the School Year thread on the School Days...

    Re: Breaking up for the summer holidays

    I may have been 133⁄4 during the summer of 1992 ironically enough, (and looked a bit like Adrian Mole at the time too), but no, I did not use a diary to write all that - I used my excellent memory...

    Breaking up for the summer holidays

    I was thinking just now that as we are approaching the fourth week of July, back in the day it obviously meant the end of the school year and six (or sometimes just five or even seven) weeks' holiday...

    Re: Just painted this....

    Bob Ross was that Afro-style haired American, perhaps Canadian bloke, wasn't he? He was someone who I used to see on the Discovery channels during the day, and he did his shows in a studio with a...

    Re: Drama lessons

    Also, it made me think of those Grange Hill episodes where they did their own productions - the Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat one from series 2 (1979); the Revue from series 5 (1982) which I...

    Re: Drama lessons

    I think that the downside to acting is trying to learn lines, being in character - i.e. responding to someone else's name as if it's your own, and things like that. Although I do like to express...

    Drama lessons

    I enjoyed Drama lessons quite a bit - it was a chance to express oneself and be what one wanted to be; a sort of Let's Pretend for 11 to 16 year olds. So much so that I even attended a Saturday...

    Re: English Villages

    It used to frustrate me when I used to live under Nottingham City Council as they had no rural areas and only had urban areas, and when it became a unitary authority in 1998 it was like scraping the...

    Re: Lion king

    There was a mondegreen at the start of the original Lion King film which sounds as if the former Arsenal manager's name is sung in the lyrics.

    Re: English Villages

    I have always wanted to live in a village myself - as the council I now live under have a few of them within their patch, I suppose that it would make it a bit easier to move to somewhere like that...

    Re: RIP Denise Nickerson

    By the way, I used to find it humorous that her name sounded rather like "Denise Knickers On!"

    On a tangent, I read in the news yesterday about Verruca Salt's prop Wonka Bar and Golden Ticket (the...

    I probably was back then - all these coincidental fires seemed a bit too much, and I was seven years old at the time.

    Yes, I know that dating shows are ways of ridiculing people as you said, but on the other hand, I feel that the more people know about my problem, the more people can help me. For example, I believe...

    The Crying Boy painting

    Re: PE and towels, soap etc

    That school sounds like a hotel to be honest, supplying towels and soap. My school wasn't like that, probably because the pupils didn't really want to use towels that others had used - think of PE...

    Re: Family get togethers

    Thanks for the positive comment HG - the problem is that I almost see everyone as stereotypes as each other - you know, married at 17, family of their own by 19, becoming grandparents by 40. I have...
