I drove past the green around 8pm last night and they were all lit - they must be on timers and the odd one has a faulty timer maybe?

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

the pedestrian crossing at Post Office Corner is having a funny do. It's stopping the traffic at random intervals even though nobody is there. I remember this happening about 20 years ago when the Royal Mail sorting office was up on the top floor there. Two of us were 'working' nights and the beep-...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yesterday afternoon I rang the surgery and asked why I had not been called for a flu jab. The lady told me that the culprit was vaccine supplies, they have been coming in in dribs and drabs from the NHS. She booked me for a slot on Monday morning.... If you haven't had one previously, I would ask t...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

I agree P and another thing that baffled me was why anybody thought it was a good thing to put letter boxes at the bottom of doors.... All the posties I have ever asked hate them. I must agree - I hate them too (being 6ft 3ins tall...!) They are actually banned in Ireland (since 2000) on all new bu...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I've always had a Phillips razor and I got the Braun to see if it was any better. It hasn't been as good for me and I'll just switch back to my old Phillips which I've had for many years and hasn't failed. I did the same thing going from Phillips to Braun and it's one of my poorer decisions! The Br...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I remember playing an arcade machine similar to this one on the seafront at Silloth in the 1960's when I was a kid and being able to win a cigarette if the ball landed in a particular slot. I don't think it would be allowed nowadays..!

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

In Cornwall we have to be careful. Most of the mine shafts have been covered but there are still older holes to fall into. A friend of mine once fell down a mine shaft in Cornwall. I shouted down to him, "Have you broken anything Bill...?" He shouted back, "No, there's nothing down here to break...!"

It is indeed situated outside Morrisons HQ in Bradford.

Graham also created the statue of Eric Morecambe on Morecambe seafront and also the Eric and Ernie statue in the Winter Gardens at Blackpool.

He also did my favourites Stan and Ollie in Ulverston. :smile:

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We stopped buying any kind of newspaper years ago. Even with the dailies I came to the conclusion that there was no point paying for something that contains yesterdays news and someone else's opinion. I can get current news and plenty of comment via TV and radio and if I want to do a crossword I wi...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

The place-name component 'ing' has two possible roots. One is a small stream, the other denotes 'people of' as in Reading or Spalding. I don't know why but I have always associated the term with 'lane' or 'track' At the last meeting of the Barlick History Society we were informed by Mr Peter Watson...
