    Re: Bonfire night

    It was a nightmare for myself when I was younger - I thought that the end of the world was about to happen with all those bangs and flashing lights.

    Re: Bonfire night

    Now you're talking, Tex - they are idiots who almost literally have money to burn. Perhaps that money should be better used as donations to charities such as Great Ormond Street as a way of helping...

    Re: Bonfire night

    The problem is that some seem to think of it as begging - after all, where does the money go? Towards buying fireworks and the like?

    Re: Bonfire night

    Yes, the supermarkets do cater for the private parties, but the local councils try to discourage this by doing one of their own - out of the public purse.

    I have never been outside our wonderful country - I did have an aunt who emigrated to Australia many decades ago.

    It was Coco Pops for me, personally.

    No, I wouldn't use it outside of doing a recipe.

    Re: Bonfire night

    Don't forget that in most years, Guy Fawkes Night coincides (a few weeks either way, at least) with Diwali, the Hindu festival, as they use fireworks to celebrate as well - I suppose that is why...

    Re: Bonfire night

    I have a feeling that there is a Guy Fawkes Night thread that already exists on the forum, but never mind.

    Things have been quiet so far - I bet that in the next week or so we will hear the bangs...

    I have in my mind those Panini football stickers that used to get passed along in the school playground.

    I thought that it was "underlay" as well - no wonder that mouseholes (or miceholes [sic] perhaps as it is a plural?), are so close to the skirting boards in houses, probably because of the fact that...

    The Country Boy was mentioned on the old TV Cream website although I don't remember it myself.

    Re: TSB School Bank
