    Re: Antiques and collectibles

    Re: Which Song Do You Wish You'd Written?

    Jeff Lynne has written a lot of great music from the '60s to the 2000s, amazing talent! I guess if I could have written 'Happy Birthday To You' I might be quite wealthy, but I'd have needed a time...

    Re: The Days of Pearly Spencer

    Even though it was coming about around the same time I was in 1967 I know the song. For some reason when I think about it I also think about 'Kites' by Simon Dupree (later Gentle Giant). Orchestral...
  5. Re: Stupid things you were scared of when you were little.

    I was only a little scared by the Abominable Snowman in the Rudolph Reindeer special, until he got that bad tooth yanked!

    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    It's funny, while she was with us I used to dislike my Gran's Christmas pudding and not have any most years... what I wouldn't give to have her and her pudding back for one more year!

    I didn't have a horse in this race, but as someone who has watched a deterioration in the U.S. I want to say that civility is the foundation of civilization. One of my personal heroes is Prime...

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978

    Thanks for the info. I've seen a website that 'preserves' some Ceefax screens and explains a bit about it. We had something in Canada like that, I would see the front page screen of it on one...

    Re: The ITV network map from 1978
