    Re: Ice Cream Vans

    Re: Back In Time For School

    The Back in Time franchise has done well over the last few years, and the producers seem to be milking it (almost a pun there) each year seeing what else they can do with it.

    I briefly saw the...

    Re: Electric Plugs

    At such a young age I didn't even know that metal conducted electricity until I just happened to accidently find out why - there was smoke but I was OK.

    Re: Tell us a joke

    Someone told this joke on a radio station earlier on this week:

    Why did the cow cross the earth?
    So they he could see the moo-n.

    Just heard the first ice cream van chimes in my area last week - do they really start around February each year?

    In Scotland (because of the 2nd January holiday), 4th January is not really a school day in Scotland as it is a bit like this:

    Re: Going to school on your Birthday

    I have worked it out as to whether you had to go to school on your birthday if it had fallen on 4th January - I think that it is a bit like this:

    I was just thinking that in the days when plugs were not included with electrical items, Morphy Richards (are they still going?) used to boost in their advertising as early as 1978 (hence an old TV...

    I always went home for dinner when I was at school (which I wasn't if you think about it), hence being 30 seconds late for afternoon lessons. Ironically, some of the lunchtime supervisors (dinner...

    Re: Doctors' surgeries

    I used to make jokes about my mother fancying doctors as well - ironically, one of her friends had the initials GP which I made jokes of straight away.

    I do have access to the online Times Digital Archive and so I get my information from there. Of course, the films might not have been shown at the times that were advertised on. :)

    Doctors' surgeries

    These days now that I am close to middle age, the thought of having to see the doctor makes me feel as if there is something seriously wrong with myself, and whether it is anything serious - perhaps...

    I might let you know. One thing about the forums on there is the "tabloid" feel that they have, and that is another reason why I probably wouldn't rejoin - I heard someone refer to DS as "The Sun...

    YT has quite a few old editions of Crimewatch online and I saw the one from 1989 which had the reconstruction of the murders that Cooper did.

    The Mrs Merton and Malcolm sitcom from the late 1990s also springs to mind, where unlike Mr Bean, the programme did have one or two complaints about the fact that it was making fun of mental illness...
