    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    Yes, it was too early and optimistic to do that.

    I saw a live podcast yesterday where someone was the London demonstrations travelling from Trafalgar Square to Hyde Park, and a 59 year old man...

    Re: Watching musicals at the theatre

    Didn't get to see have my annual birthday sabbatical due to the coronavirus and all the theatres were obvious closed with performances of shows cancelled (would have chosen wither Southend or Leeds)...
  4. Re: recording TV on audio cassette / tape reel

    I don't think it was the Flying Pickets, although it would have been recorded probably prior to their 1983 Christmas number one hit.

    A quarter of the British population are now in lockdown - Leicester has been the closest town or city to where I am to get the lockdown treatment.

    I feel that a lot of traditional elements of...

    At least it recognises anything to do with Scunthorpe - not forums do that.

    It makes me laugh when someone mentions "white gold" as I always thought that it was the same as silver.

    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,...

    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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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!
  14. 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...

    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 -...
  18. 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.
  19. 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...

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

    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...
