    Re: Drama lessons

    My secondary school had a play each year, even though I liked Drama I never took part in any, as I was already struggling with homework & didn't have any spare time.

    Re: Drama lessons

    I was never good at learning lines but liked putting on a play.

    Re: The Crying Boy painting

    We were talking about this at work a few months ago, supposedly the pictures were covered with a retardant with made them hard to burn.

    I wonder if the blue Chinese girl has similar issues?

    Re: PE and towels, soap etc

    Back in the good old days when the rich actually paid their taxes, & didn't need the working class as a brainwashed stooge army to do their dirty work for them.

    Re: The Goodies

    The Goodies has been unlucky to be short on repeats & home releases due to someone high up in the BBC supposedly not liking the series, & making sure it was hidden away.

    I heard that Michael Bollner, who played Augustus Gloop didn't act much afterwards & is now an accountant.

    Re: Women's Football

    I've enjoyed the recent Woman's World Cup, my wife observed that the players don't play act injured as much as the men do.

    Re: Advert memories from 1992

    I remember many of those adverts from 1992.

    Re: What car did you learn to drive in?

    I don't think Simcas ever sold well over here, they didn't seem to have the presence of the other French brands in spite of having 1-2 innovative designs, & poor rust proofing didn't help either.

    Re: Mrs Browns Boys

    I like it, it's daft fun but the cast are well aware of this & play along with it.

    Da Movie wasn't so good, probably because opening up things removed the cosiness of the TV setting.
