Albert Finney has died aged. Liked him as an "angry young man" and as Churchill in the Gathering Storm. RIP sir. Nolic

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

My mum worked at t'Stew Mill throughout the war and in to the 1950's often having to walk from Barlick via the canal to get to work. She once took me up to see the water wheel and I remember it as quite massive and very frightening for a youngster. The wheel was removed to Quarry Bank museum when it...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Great news Comrade. I've been a bit taken up with Cath's health over the past few days. She saw the GP a couple of weeks ago about an incessant headache and back pain. Over a week and whilst the back pain was easing the headache was getting worse. On Thursday she got our local pharmacist to check he...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Returning from a nice break in Durham via Blubberhouses yesterday set me to thinking what Mrs Trellis and her two erstwhile jesters might be up to this year. Rumour locally is that Boris O'Storiths is elsewhere in the country plotting. Missing his mentor Beamsly Bob hit the bottle and was found mess...

I remember walking to Coates with mi dad watching them build the road. I couldn't understand why this wasn't now called New Road as it was newer than the one from Barlick to Salterforth. Nolic

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Greenfield Reservoir is not the most idyllic of locations Ian but hit it at the right time and in the right place and you could really bag up. Towards the end of one season in the early 1980's a mate and myself were fishing the canal bank side and bagged up on dustbin lid bream. By mid afternoon we ...

After only 2 weeks on Dulaglutide weekly injections my sugar levels have dropped 3 points on the mmol/L scale. My appetite is much reduced so I'm eating less and loosing weight and I feel better that I have done for a couple of years. Hopefully if this continues I can come off the dreaded metformin....

Re: MAJESTIC CINEMA AND MATT HARTLEY.

Barlick "pop" at the Majestic did not begin until the early 1960's ( 1962 I think) and it ran on a Sunday afternoon. There may have been pop sessions on a Wednesday evening but the big acts came on the Sundays. Nolic
