  1. A Bridge too Far in the hope the allies will arrive at the bridge in time
  2. My state pension is £128 per week ,my wife’s is £80 per week ,it was £34 but because when I came onto pension with full dues paid it went up to £80.Can’t claim additional pension because I made the mistake of saving for my retirement and have too much in savings.Not moaning we are ok but I am surprised at the huge discrepancy of state pensions
  3. What a superlative voice he had,rip.
  4. We saw him last year on stage,he was in a sorry state ,not the doddy we had come to know and love,he was even turning round to the drummer asking for the punch lines.At the end of the night the audience stood up as one and all clapped ,no shouts for more a truly moving experience as it was thanking him for all those years of entertaining them.A true great of the entertainment business.
  5. Just wondered if anyone who has gone through chemotherapy has any tips on counteracting the bad feeling of nausea afterwards ,thanks
  6. I remember during the 1980's a large steel rolling mill in Rotherham controlled and optimised it's cutting of the steel for its customers with a computer who's memory was smaller than a Sinclair Spectrum 48k.
  7. Thanks for your replies I will pass the telephone number on to my friends as I have a copy but they don't .I thought I would get one reply from one person trying to take advantage of the situation.
  8. Trying to source a copy of Not Like A Proper Job,a history of Sheffield bands in the 60's/70's for a friend but it seems it is not available anymore
  9. Hi Tez ,my name is Roy I didn't play in the Knights but I saw them and knew them.I remember Sean Piggott his brother Vin,Chell Morton and Roy Mcginley and also Phil Wright .I used to play in a band at that time called Big Ben and the Chimes,perhaps you heard of them.I am in good contact with Sean if you want me to relay any message to him.
  10. Why don't we make it mandatory that to visit this country you must have health insurance along with a passport
  11. I see they've included Ken Dodd in the new year honours list.Long overdue after all these years making millions of people laugh.It must have left a nasty taste in the establishments mouth to have in the end give it to him ,l bet they were hoping he'd pop off before they had to.
  12. Yes most of clubs concert secretaries were hard working and honest but you got the odd scammer who disgraced the title.The scam goes like this:- The artistes are on a fee of £28 the concert secretary comes in the dressing room at the end of the night to pay the act he presents a receipt book to sign for a fee of £45 saying if we sign there's an extra £5 for us so we are presented with £33.That means the secretary can pocket £12 for himself.This happened to us more than once
  13. Remember the old Ford cars and vans fitted with windscreen wipers driven by pressure from the exhaust manifold,ludicrous when you took your foot off accelerator the wipers went ten to the dozen,when you pressed hard on accelerator the wipers stopped.
  14. What handypandy said brings back fond memories.We were in a band and used to get around in an old ford zephyr estate.Problem was there wasn't enough seating in the front for all of us.So the smallest and thinnest of us used to make himself rigid and we would pick him up and feed him into the back with the gear just like a mic stand.Health and Safety today would have a field day.
