  1. speleo 1, I like 60s, reggae, Beatles / Stones / Hollies, charts compilations like Top of the Pops, Iron Maiden, country music in small doses, all sorts but not RAP !
  2. I still use these & I'd love to have them. What sort of stuff's on them? If it's my kind of music I'd give you a few bob for them. I've got one of those "any format" music centres, so I still play my old vinyl stuff from the sixties etc. Bit of reggae as well.
  3. Hi, In my book, The Oxford Names Companion, Brinsley is a place in Nottinghamshire, originally BRUNESLEIA. It means "Woodland clearing of a man called Brun." Old English personal name of Brun, plus "leia" meaning clearing. The nearest one to it in the first names & surnames section is Brinkley, personal name of Brynca, plus leia. Any lookups anybody ?
  4. Thanks guys, think I'll risk it then. I always stand with it anyway, I don't leave it unattended, & the first sign of a problem I'll move it. Cheers.
  5. No, just your basic 800 watts cheapo thing, only used about once every two days for five minutes.
  6. Hi All, Does anybody know if it's O.K. to site my microwave directly underneath the Worcester boiler in a corner of my kitchen? There would be a 4 inch space above it & open space all around it. Would rising hot air from it cause problems with the boiler, with it obviously being open to the air at the bottom? S'cuse my ignorance.
  7. I've had stuff like this happen after my husband died , & I had to sell/give away about thirteen vehicles & motorbikes, & it's still happening. If I haven't got any paperwork, I've usually found that writing a letter to them explaining the situation will sort it. I've had trouble with cloning, parking fines, speeding fines, new keepers not doing things properly, but it's always been waived by the authorities when I've told them what's happened. Obviously it's better to keep records of everything, so that's a lesson learned. Hope you can sort it.
  8. Hi, new faces always welcome. Not been a forumer long myself. I like to listen & say nowt. There are some on here who are always entertaining in one way or another!
  9. Another good site is Curious Fox ( www.curiousfox.com ). You can either go on it for free, or pay about £5.50 for the year. I've made some great breakthroughs on there, & also helped a lot of people with their search. It's not records, it's people asking for information.
  10. Tesco sell the washing up liquid, which I always buy, they probably do the soap powder as well.
  11. KEN WINTERBOTTOM's funeral is on Wednesday 4th September at 11.45 at Rotherham Crematorium, then afterwards at The Tabard on Herringthorpe Valley Road.
  12. Thorpy .... It was nice to hear about your exploits, Ken told me all these things, he could always tell a good tale. Wasn't it Roger Walker who always had a pot on his arm? Ken was a rebel right to the end, we only found out five weeks ago that he had cancer but he said he was going to cause as much trouble as possible before he went. And he did. But that's another story. Nice that he's remembered.
  13. You've got it exactly right David. Thankyou for that.
  14. Ken Winterbottom , born Sharrow, lately of Dinnington, died on Friday August 9th. Rest in peace.
  15. Where're you from then Lucian ?
  16. Todwick or Harthill are lovely. Beighton is nice as well, all of these are close to junction 31 of the M1.
  17. I think it must have been about 1958, I remember going to play on the swings. We used to shout things at the "Parkie" to make him chase us, then run off out of the bottom gate. The playground was good, there were all sorts of things in it, & when the park first opened there was even a café in it. Haven't been back on Deerlands for at least thirty years.
  18. Hi DAVID FRANCE, Keith Spooner ( Spud) would like to contact you about the school reunion. He's at his caravan at the moment & the Wi-Fi's not good. He says it's best to send him a text as he always gets them. I tried to send you a private message with his phone number & email address but that didn't work. I don't mind putting my email address on here, so could you please let me know how to send them to you. Cheers. Lovelace. DAVID FRANCE. Sorry, forgot to add the email ; lknight65@googlemail.com
  19. Do you know her name or her Mother's name?
  20. Hi Callum. Don't know if you're allowed to do it, but could you put some sort of identifying description of this caravan, so that we can all avoid them. My family often hire caravans in Skeggy & we've had some nasty surprises, but I wouldn't want them to get involved with this owner. Hope you get your money back.
  21. Yes he is ; info@str-uk.com
  22. Hi Janet, I was Linda Softley, I lived on Deerlands Avenue. I left there when I was about 13 or 14 & moved to Shirecliffe.
  23. Hi Janet, I've only just seen your post on here, or I'd have replied before. I remember you very well, I think I came to your house one dinnertime with Jillian Corbidge. She lives in Leicester now but I'll remember you to her. How's life treated you? Linda
