  2. Re: Tv programmes that would not be shown today

    It's mostly a European thing - French spellings resemble British spellings when it comes to words like "colour" and "flavour", and as Britain is closer to France, it's not surprising. Nited States,...

    What about the Happy Families trilogy of books by Allan Ahlberg? His wife Jannet illustrated them - I always associate them with the school library on Friday afternoons and borrowing one of them a...

    Re: Barbers shops

    Come to think of it, we don't get too many female "barbers" do we?

    This is the main reason why I would never use razors to remove stubble - cue having to use toilet paper to cover up the cuts on the face.

    Re: Supermarket pricing stickers

    When ITV 3 started to show Coronation Street a couple of years ago, there was an episode where Audrey mispriced jars of HP Sauce as being 14p instead of 41p - she must have got the numbers the wrong...

    Re: Supermarket pricing stickers

    Even then, barcodes were on certainly already...
