    Blackpool is down the road from me here in Manchester, you are correct Nuggy it has been going downhill for decades in spite of millions being spent on the promenade, they need to shut all the grotty boarding houses, sweep the beggars off the pavements and ban hen parties. I also resent having to pay to enter the funfair Saw the illuminations last year....boring

    This maybe false memory syndrome or something but about 15 years ago , my brother in law kindly took us just see the sea front and illuminations .. we parked up and started walking along the front and I’m sure that the first thing we saw was a lap dance / strip club !!

    I would love to have a good look at that Comedy Carpet or whatever it is called in Blackpool - I believe that it has a lot of quotations and catchphrases from various comedians from the past. Has anyone had a good look at it for themselves?
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    38 years !!

    I think we are slightly ahead of you ..
    Married in Dec 1980 so that’s very nearly 39 years by my calculations
    - we’ve been ‘together’ since 1977 though ...

    I have only seen photographs of it, but I do know that Brucie's "nice to see you, to see you, nice" is written a lot bigger than anything else on there.

    Thanks Zabadak, we had a lovely time. Southport was a pleasant surprise probably helped by the pleasant weather.. (two pleasants in the same sentence...how pleasant).
