    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    To be honest, I wouldn't say that there is a country on the planet at the moment where one would be lucky to be in - the virus has no boundaries, and those people who travel from country to country,...

    Re: Jewellery

    Just corrected that for you - after all, what is rude about having something that you can tell the time with?. :)

    Re: Jewellery

    I have never worn contact lenses - I have this phobia of getting them stuck and having to go to the eye hospital to have them removed. My sister had this controversy from my late mother when she...
  5. Re: recording TV on audio cassette / tape reel

    You're probably thinking of the OTB spin-off Don't Drink the Water from around 1975 - it has Stephen Lewis as Blakey (in which it is officially regarded as a spin-off) and Pat Coombs playing his...
  6. Re: recording TV on audio cassette / tape reel

    Addendum: the Varney sitcom was called Down the 'Gate, and not On The Gate - I seemed to have merged it with On the Buses!
  7. Re: Snake puppets singing Forever and Ever

    Managed to get it to play after a few moments, and as I can hear, it is a version of the Demis Roussos song - I didn't know that Englebert Humperdinck ever did a version of it (the singer in the clip...

    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    Selfishness has a lot to do with it - I know that elderly people think that young people "don't know they're born" when it comes to what they didn't have to put up with before they were born. We have...

  10. Re: The third year becoming Year Nine and all that

    Did different LEAs around the country introduce the system at different times, I wonder? Nottinghamshire County Council (pre-Nottingham City unitary authority) definitely did so in September 1991 -...
  11. Re: 1970s Kids Tattoos in a packet what were they called?

    Were Garbage Pail Kids stickers or tattoos? - I used to see them littered around the school in the late 1980s.
  12. Re: Snake puppets singing Forever and Ever

    It was before my time, but I was wondering whether it the Demis Roussos or the Slik song that they had sung?

    Sounds like a 1970s TV show if they were singing one of those songs as kids' shows...

    Indeed - will this ever end?

    I hope to God that Nottingham doesn't get so bad that the city will be next for lockdown.

    In the Infants School it was just our underwear, while in Junior School it was t-shirt and shorts, and Comprehensive School it was the same or a tracksuit so one's legs were covered up in the cold...

    Re: Bullying

    This was in the late 1980s - ironically, I had a similar problem myself but it was very mild and not at all noticeable - as early as November 1987 it happened, possibly due to school, and I knew that...

    I didn't know it got the Jackanory treatment, but then again my household was always a Children's ITV one - I thought it would be more of a Words and Pictures-type book to be honest. I know that...

    Ten in a Bed

    Does anyone remember reading a children's story either at school or at their local library, which was called "Ten in a Bed" and was written (and perhaps even illustrated) by Allan "Happy Families"...

    It does look as if a second wave might be coming as Johnson has said - the number of deaths have gone up again. I was hoping that lightning wouldn't strike twice, but six months onwards, I wouldn't...

    We will be passing the autumn equinox in a day or so - notice how reasonably light it is in the evenings and dark it is in the mornings. You would have thought that it was like November in the...
