    Re: Remembering Valentines day

    If you are single, just think of it as being another day - after all, it's not quite Christmas Day, is it? - who cares if no one sends you a card?

    I wonder whether the postman will deliver me...

    Felixstowe

    Re: Tuck Shops?

    Our science teacher organised out Tuck Shop until it got officially by a vending machine.

    In the 1981 series of Grange Hill, notice how Mars seemed to sponsor the school Tuck Shop there - was...

    Re: Snooker

    Hearn did make snooker popular in the 1980s - without him it would have been an underground sport. He was responsible for a lot of eighties names such as Kirk Stevens, Tony Meo, Doug Mountjoy, Drago,...

    There was a bit of sun coming out yesterday - unbelievable that only 48 hours before it was snowing.

    Re: 30yrs Since Hillsborough.

    Has there ever been such a football disaster where so many people have lost their lives? - there probably have been, but each incident is different.

    When I watch old 1970s episodes of Coronation Street on YouTube, I sometimes hope that they were original off-airs and that the original ad breaks are intact - I obviously know that they are not, but...

    Re: Please Sir

    Great series, and the feature film was so good - I don't think that we would have had Please Sir! if it wasn't for the film To Sir, With Love.

    The Vosene adverts were running from 1981 to 1984 with Michael Jayston doing the voiceover with the green bottles - certainly one advert was doing the rounds at the end of July 1981 when Charles...

    Re: 30yrs Since Hillsborough.

    When I watch football matches on TV and see a lower-league one where most of the seats are empty, I often think that it is a "Hillsborough in reverse" if you know what I mean.
