  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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!!!!
  4. 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!!!
  5. Turned it off after 20 minutes! What a load of rubbish!!
  6. Who remembers sitting the eleven plus exam? Did failing it ruin your life?
  7. I went to St.Pats and lived on Homestead Road! I would have started about 1947!!!
  8. We had our share of interesting people in Sheffield City Centre in the 50s/60s with Pond St.Nora and Big Ada. But, did anyone know or remember the guy who ran round looking in litter bins and muttering to himself? He always wore a flying helmet.
  9. Can anyone recommend a picture framer in Sheffield. We usually go to the wonderful Momento at Attercliffe but he's closed until the end of August!!!!!
  10. Given that television first started in 1936 when there were 500 sets in the UK, with most people buying one after the Coronation in 1953, does anyone know anyone who was affluent enough to have one in the early days?
  11. Just travelled past the Front Room Indian Restaurant at Hillsborough and every window and the door are boarded up? Anyone know whats happened? Its such a lovely place to eat.
  12. Sheffield seemed to produce quite a few beauty queens in the 50s/60s. Who remembers Delyse Humpheries, Christine Owen and I think Johnny Fanthams wife Carole won one of the beauty titles? Does anyone remember?
  13. Stand corrected!!!! Stand by my original comments though!!!
