  1. Took battery out and dusted it down!! Hy presto computer switched on!! Thanks everyone!!
  2. Last time I spoke to Currys they recommended a HP 14 AMD Ryzen 3. At the time, ages ago it was 299. Just looked and cant see it now. The prices are now more than that but I was told it was sufficient for my needs.
  3. Thanks Riffraff, Where did you purchase replacement? I only need a simple laptop. Don't need state of the art or games etc. Its a minefield when I look at Currys site!
  4. I have a Toshiba laptop. It won't switch on. Power is getting to it as little white light on. But nothing happens when I press the start button. HELP!
  5. Who remembers the staff at the old Firth Park Library next to the Clock Tower Building on Firth Park Road? I remember the librarian in charge Andrew Milroy, Keith, the Hospitals librarian, June and Jean the cleaning staff and library assistants - Shiela, Val, Sandra, Margaret, Monica and Kay. Is anyone still around and enjoying retirement?
  6. I'm getting emails, it seems, from BT. The account update has an email address of a Robert Garrett at the top and the Failure to log in one has @betcable.com at the top. I seem to be in danger of losing my Internet connections if I don't follow the instructions which include a glaring spelling mistake! Have deleted them!!!!
  7. Thanks to everyone who replied to my query. Think my fathers friend could have been George Manterfield who oned the fruit and veg shop. However, there is no one left to ask now and I don't know how they would have known each other! As I replied to Andy Manterfield, grandson of George, men didn't do much shopping in the 50s! so it as possibly through some other source!!!!
  8. My husband belonged to a band called Tapestry??????????
  9. My excellent library at Stannington has been giving book marks out for long enough giving the Christmas and New Year library opening times. As the library is staffed by volunteer workers, and I must say, with the same standard of service as libraries have always provided in the 70 years that I have been using them, since the days when my father took my sister and myself to Firth Park Library every Saturday afternoon, I am just grateful that these people are enabling me to continue to use what I consider a vital part of life.
  10. I seem to remember that we usually had a visit from relatives on Boxing Day certainly through the 50s. Given that no one we knew had a car, would buses have been running then?
  11. It seems that many young people in the age range 18-24 have no knowledge of practical skills like changing plugs, washing dishes in the sink and changing light bulbs.' The Good Housekeeping Guide to Homekeeping for Young People' which first came out in 1966 has recently been updated. Did anyone need the help of a manual for household skills when they first got married?
  12. Who remembers the sophistication of Vesta meals in the 70s when, with an empty Chianti bottle on the table complete with candle, we thought we were in Spain!!!!
  13. Anyone have any funny stories about passing their driving test? I was eight months pregnant and I think the examiner was worried he might have to act as midwife!!!
