    Re: what tv show have you been watching.

    Corrie on in six minutes, there is so little worth watching I've stayed with it even when it's particularly daft and despite the CBC moving it's airtime around. We are just at the bit where Daniel is...

    Liverpool made the evening news over here! People 'partying' before lockdown. Looking every bit as foolish as those Yanks at their political rallies, only with drunken grins as opposed to angry and...

    Re: To Sir, With Love

    I liked the film, it had a slice of life aspect though still a moralist drama. The theme song was quite famous and I learned later Lulu had some more rocking numbers and a great voice for that too! I...

    Re: Old Console and Computers. Any Collectors?

    I have an Atari with various game cartridges from the early '80s. I wonder if it'd still work? I'd have to figure out how to attach it to a modern flat screen television though. I used to love some...

    One of my favorite groups! I find all the incarnations of it to be interesting, from the blues-rock Peter Green (r.i.p.) original to even the short lived line-ups with Dave Mason or Dave Walker! I...

    Re: What Is Your Favourite Queen Song's

    I liked all of the The Game album back at the time... but maybe my favorite was Dragon Attack, which was never a hit, or probably even a single.

    I had a bracelet I loved years ago and it came off in a park. We looked for over an hour and couldn't find it and I haven't worn a bracelet regularly since. I still miss that simple gold bracelet. I...

    I like that Sometimes song by Erasure and I think Vince Clarke is a genius! I was more around for Yazoo and even that really early Depeche Mode he was in. There were a lot of good groups with synths...

    I had to get some L'Oreal eyeliner from England awhile ago, I couldn't find my Earthen Rock brown shade anymore here. I bought two and they've lasted, but starting to worry.

    Re: Back in time for the corner shop

    I expect it will turn up over here like the other Back In Time series... I'll keep an eye out for it. Coronation Street has had one since the first episode in 1960 and it has certainly changed over...
