    Re: Just painted this....

    Bob Ross was that Afro-style haired American, perhaps Canadian bloke, wasn't he? He was someone who I used to see on the Discovery channels during the day, and he did his shows in a studio with a...

    I was such a huge fan of Call My Bluff when it was on TV.

    Re: Drama lessons

    Also, it made me think of those Grange Hill episodes where they did their own productions - the Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat one from series 2 (1979); the Revue from series 5 (1982) which I...

    Re: Drama lessons

    I think that the downside to acting is trying to learn lines, being in character - i.e. responding to someone else's name as if it's your own, and things like that. Although I do like to express...

    Drama lessons

    I enjoyed Drama lessons quite a bit - it was a chance to express oneself and be what one wanted to be; a sort of Let's Pretend for 11 to 16 year olds. So much so that I even attended a Saturday...

    Re: English Villages

    It used to frustrate me when I used to live under Nottingham City Council as they had no rural areas and only had urban areas, and when it became a unitary authority in 1998 it was like scraping the...

    Re: Lion king

    There was a mondegreen at the start of the original Lion King film which sounds as if the former Arsenal manager's name is sung in the lyrics.

    Re: English Villages

    I have always wanted to live in a village myself - as the council I now live under have a few of them within their patch, I suppose that it would make it a bit easier to move to somewhere like that...

    Re: RIP Denise Nickerson

    By the way, I used to find it humorous that her name sounded rather like "Denise Knickers On!"

    On a tangent, I read in the news yesterday about Verruca Salt's prop Wonka Bar and Golden Ticket (the...

    Re: The Crying Boy painting

    I probably was back then - all these coincidental fires seemed a bit too much, and I was seven years old at the time.

    Yes, I know that dating shows are ways of ridiculing people as you said, but on the other hand, I feel that the more people know about my problem, the more people can help me. For example, I believe...

    The Crying Boy painting

    I refer to the very depressing portrait of a young male child in tears which brought even more depressing consequences to the many homes around the country where it had hung on living room walls,...

    Re: PE and towels, soap etc

    That school sounds like a hotel to be honest, supplying towels and soap. My school wasn't like that, probably because the pupils didn't really want to use towels that others had used - think of PE...

    Also, various factors in my life have attributed to the fact that I haven't found a partner apart from platonic relationships - for example, being bullied at school in the early 1990s which made me...

    Re: Family get togethers

    Thanks for the positive comment HG - the problem is that I almost see everyone as stereotypes as each other - you know, married at 17, family of their own by 19, becoming grandparents by 40. I have...

    Regarding weddings - I actually come from a small family and so not many weddings in the recent past. In fact, I haven't been to a family wedding since the early 1990s and whether I will ever attend...

    Sad news - is she the first of the Chocolate Factory kids to pass away? There doesn't seem to be a Wikipedia page for the actor who played Augustus Gloop so I wouldn't know. Did she really have...

    Re: RIP Freddie Jones

    Great character actor - had played some eccentric roles. I saw him in a children's film where he was brilliant in character.
