    Embarrasing moments!

    I went into a medical outlet in Hong Kong and asked the attractive receptionist if I could get something to treat prickly heat. She gave me a big smile and said 'Maybe you should try the doctor next door, this is a veterinary clinic.'

    Settling an argument! Winstons.

    I seem to remember Winstons on Snig Hill had a display window and possibly an entrance in one of the passage ways leading to the Hole in the Road. I bought a pair of snazzy pin striped flared trousers from them.
  10. When I lived in Hong Kong I moved into a rented house located in the far reaches of the New Territories. I was the only non-Chinese resident in the village. I spotted an elderly gentleman who looked like he might be an important member of the village community. Upon asking him how long he had lived there, he replied 'I don't live here, I own a chip shop in Sheffield'

    A slow and painful death would be preferable to supporting United or even worse Leeds

    Strange Pub Names

    I remember when working on the railway south of Doncaster there was the Packet Inn which appropriately appeared to have closed down. There was a pub with the nickname 'Swingers' (not sure which context it was used) in Sheffield city centre, However I cannot remember its proper name or exact location I know of a pub in the Philippines which is grossly misnamed 'The Temple of a Thousand Virgins'
