    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    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...

    Re: Ten in a Bed

    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"...

    Re: Bullying

    Being in the final year of Junior school reminded me of this poor lad in the same class as myself who had been diagnosed with encopresis (faecal soiling) and he was called names as a result - he was...

    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...

    Re: Autumn

    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...

    Re: Advert memories from 1985

    Another advert was the Kellogg's Corn Flakes one from around September 1985 with the plastic model aeroplane kits free in the cereal packets - one had to put it together a la the toys from the Kinder...

    Why did I miss this thread? - I happened to look over the past few pages and I found it.

    Very touching to see that so many people were concerned about me. :)

    Re: Masionettes

    You are more likely to hear it in Pick of the Pops type programmes - if they do a December 1982 or most likely a January 1983 chart, you will probably hear it then.

    I have always wondered what...

    I have just played Heartache Avenue on YouTube (many years ago I also got the 7 inch single in a charity shop as well), and it often made me think why they didn't have further hits in the charts - I...

    There was an episode which featured a school setting a fire alarm off and, I think, was a false alarm and the school getting a good rollicking as a result. Another one was some plants hung up over a...

    Advert memories from 1985

    It's amazing how watching old 1980s ad breaks on YouTube can bring back something quite vague to the memory - 1985 seemed to be the year when grainy filmed adverts gave way to more VT ads, and so...

    Re: RIP Alan Minter

    Correction: just looked on Big Red Book.info, and Minter actually appeared on TIYL in 1980. I suppose that the surprise and shock of Andrews accosting him led him to use choice language in response.
