Six hours later in the early hours of the 21st July at 02:56, Mission Commander Neil Armstrong became the first man...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Interesting to note that we both live in a couple of the earliest terrace houses built in the town. I am still hoping to find a picture of the short row of 4 houses that used to stand at the top of Robert Street. They were there on the 1853 map and only demolished in the 1960's. I cant understand wh...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Indeed Kev, did you notice that it is the opposite way round to other Aldi stores. I liked the layout, better shelves than in the other stores and very wide isles between. The car park is very spacious as well with wide lanes between the ranks of bays. If I could fault the site in any way it would b...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I think you two may be falling for the con trick. You are being diverted from the realities. Trump is a racist misogynistic bully who is a danger to both China and the UK, May is fawning on anyone who bolsters her position. Meanwhile the clock ticks and we slide down the slope to the reality of the...

I don't agree with flying the Trump blimp, it's insulting and unnecessary and just not cricket. But it's perfectly OK for him to insult via tweets everyone and everything that is not in line with his fantasy world. Flying the blimp may not be "cricket" as you say but thankfully peaceful protest is ...

Trump has had a go at Sadiq Khan as well tweeting that he supports terrorism! It's all about the crowd funded inflatable baby. He's given as good as he got and has said that it is not his job so censure freedom of speech in a democracy. Baby Trump will fly today. :biggrin2:

This was a woman Tripps, could not believe the diatribe, they did have New Yorker on at the same time to give some balance, his basic viewpoint was that Trump should resign now and let a sane person become President.

On our way back from the funeral we listened to callers to the Jeremy Vine show, (presented by Michael Howard for the rest of the week) regarding Trumps visit. There was some kind of Scottish religious zealot on in full rant mode saying that he, (Trump) was taking a hit for the world as he was in th...

Dan's car insurance company demanded continued monthly payments on his policy despite being told that he had been killed in a RTA and the car was written off. This was even after we had sent them a copy of his death certificate. Mobile phone company ...

As you approach the site you can hear and feel the power of the water. The ground around the station for about 50 metre...
