    Re: General Election 2019

    This year, (as well as other things happening), I haven't been able to concentrate on Christmas properly because my mind has been focused on the General Election, and I think that this has also been...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    The postman came today and I am pleased to say that I had four lovely Christmas cards in the post from two relatives, a friend, and even somewhere where I went when in holiday - I just hope that all...

    Many thanks again.

    Many thanks - it would be interesting which local cinemas would have shown it.

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I have always felt that the more Christmas cards I receive, the more I feel that I am in the Christmas mood and want to celebrate it.

    Did The Shining ever make it to the cinemas? - before my time if it did.

    Re: Kidney stones

    There are a lot of things in life that are worse for men - I think that we get our share of those things which happen to be different to women.

    Re: The most beautiful place you have visited

    I believe so - Channel 10 Australia's studios. Anyone from Australia would like to put me right with this would be welcome!

    I am not sure either, but I wouldn't want to hear from him again. This is the problem - letter or email correspondence is easier than "face to face" communication, although the problem is that one...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I would like to thank Amethyst for her PMs - I am grateful to hear from you.

    Another thing I would like to add is that I just found out today that I had sent a Christmas card to another member of...
  12. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I am racking my brains trying to think why youngsters would not be allowed to see the film Grease (which I assume was the original 1978 version of it) - I believe there is some mild bad language in...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    Many years ago I used to think why so many people have loads of Christmas cards and I had very few, and so I used to send cards to people I know and the cards increased - I think that friendships are...

    Re: The most beautiful place you have visited

    If I was in Australia, I would have loved to have visited the buildings where Prisoner: Cell Block H was made to see if it looked like a real prison - I believe that is where Neighbours is filmed...

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    Thanks both Tex and Amethyst - reading your messages on here has cheered me up. It's just that sending the card back to me and calling me an f-word is so insulting when I take the time at this time...

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    I think that originally it was a Ceefax-alike text service but they later used written text on a dark coloured background - obviously I was still in bed when it was on the TV and so I wouldn't have...
  22. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I believe that it can depend on: A) How much of the film has been edited out; and B) Whether local councils have a more "Mary Whitehouse" approach to censorship.

    When I started the Don't Look Now...

    Re: Kidney stones

    My late father had them in around 1986 - he had to go to the QMC when he had problems with them, although thinking about it, it might have been gallstones instead.
