    Re: Britain in the 60s

    I read in a Notes and Queries-alike column in the Sunday Telegraph many years ago when someone asked what the difference was between Celsius and Centigrade - I just assumed that one was a translation...

    Re: Tell us a joke

    A bloke goes to Burger King and said "I want a McBurger, with McFries and a McMilkshake".
    The man serving said "I think you've got the wrong fast food restaurant".
    The bloke then goes "I can't...

    Re: Britain in the 60s

    Look at how big The Great Train Robbery was back in 1963 - a robbery of that size would be almost forgotten about in a week these days. Back then it was unpreceded - the amount stolen as well as the...

    The banking system really modernised itself during the course of the 1960s - Barclays introduced cheque guarantee cards in 1966, and of course cashpoints were introduced the following year - Reg...

    Re: "This site is not secure" message

    I cut and pasted what was on there - whether I will get the message again is anyone's guess (hopefully I won't get it again), but I will try and capture it if it ever does happen again.

    Many of them probably just come on here to ask a question and when they get the answer they go away again - or they simply have second thoughts of joining in the first place. I think that those who...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I think that Arran is mostly referring to the years during The Troubles, the IRA, and the security which is why the Queen has never stayed in Northern Ireland over Christmas - am I correct?

    Quiet sandwiches are sandwiches that don't have a crunchy filling - (anyone used to put crisps between two slices of bread?)

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    To be honest, I didn't pay much attention when I was a child back in the 1980s - I was probably a lot more interested in playing with toys I had as presents than that sort of thing. I think that it...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I did GCSE History at school which I think is one reason. Mind you, in the mid 1990s The Sun seemed to think that the Royal Family was some sort of soap opera around the time of the Charles and Diana...

    She's a bit too old for me - besides, I think that the Duke of Edinburgh might object!

    No, I just think that the Royal Family is all about being British and showing our true identity - I think...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I watch the Queen almost every year at 3.00 pm without fail (it's only seven or eight minutes so it's no bother), but I would like to say that the "Queen's Speech" is what she does during the State...

    Made by Tyne Tees I assume - I suppose that Supergran was a 1980s equivalent of it.

    I hope it has subtitles just in case you can't understand the Geordie accents. :)

    Re: Interesting questions which go unanswered

    It's quite refreshing though - not to leave any traces of it in the bowl prior to flushing. No doubt however that this doesn't work when one defecates.
