  1. Barclays Bank 1960. Salary £295 per annum. After tax etc, came to £20-2-4d a month.
  2. Winifred Blenkinsop - wife of Ernie, Sportsman Inn, Crosspool. 1950's - mid 1960's I think.

    Will you eventually buy a hybrid car?

    Charging points are on the increase. If, in 3 years, I want to part exchange my petrol vauxhall for an all electric, then I reckon they wont want it and I'll have to pay cash.
  4. The Manager of the Old Harrow used to pay in at the Bank I worked at in Sheffield way back in 1963/5. Tall guy, black hair. Looked as though he would have no trouble in chucking out troublemakers.

    Well done Rashid.

    Not a bad way to beat the West Indies. Four wickets in one over. Mission accomplished.
  6. Can't separate them. Both were great and as good as each other. Its a priviledge to have watched them both.

    'Why Mummy Drinks' by Gill Sims. Hilarious.

    No, she's not diabetic - she just has regular low sugar level (below 4 I think). I'll make sure her teachers are fully aware that she needs regular snacks to maintain safe levels.

    My grandaughter has hypoglycemia and has to have regular sweet snacks to boost her sugar levels. This is not easy as she's at school and is only 4 and a half. I've heard that from the age of 5 they can grow out of it. Has anyone any experience of this?
  10. No I didn't. The sign says that you are allowed 2 hours for local shopping - not just Aldi.
  11. I was unaware that, when using the local Aldi car park, my car was photographed when entering and when leaving. Two hours is free but I was 21 minutes over the limit, hence a postal demand from ParkingEye for 40 pounds. I thought that fine demands for parking on private lands were not legally binding. but apparently ParkingEye are able to access my car details and my name and address from DVLA records. So I guess I had better pay up. It wont happen again!

    Bulls Eye

    We move on. 101 or more in 6 darts.
  13. Mick George was there also. Janet Flood went out with Dave White who played lead guitar in the Raiders who were on stage Saturday nights with me on Rhythm guitar. Every other Saturday night featured Joe Cocker as Vance Arnold and the Avengers. Dog Robson moved to America. Saw John Ridgeway a few years with his wife Janet Emery as was. Martin Simpson (Lyn's brother) played bass guitar with the Raiders. Those were the days.
  14. Remember the Raven well. Lawrence Flood was the landlord 1961. Daughter Janet.
