    Even then, barcodes were on certainly already...

    Re: Supermarket pricing stickers

    I was thinking about price stickers just now, and the assistant using their pricing gun - we don't see that anymore, I wonder why? Health and Safety reasons, perhaps?

    Re: Favourite James Bond Films

    Just proves that I used to think that Bank Holidays were boring back in the 1980s. ;)
