  1. In the forties and fifties the hammers of the steelworks could be heard all through the night as could the trains in the marshalling yards, all very comforting to a you lad back then.
  2. I was there from 1950 to 1959, and it was MISS Artindale never MRS , I remember all the teachers mentioned, I disliked The headteacher Miss Camm, she always had her favourites, my sister was picked on by her in the 1940s, so as soon as I reached 9 or 10 it was my turn, none of the teachers helped or encouraged me all the time I went through my “education ?” , I though I was stupid but later life I realised I could have done better things with a bit of nurturing by the teachers, don’t try and put the onus on me I was willing to learn but never asked why I wasn’t doing very well, I was a very quiet, shy pupil.
  3. I just put Goldiak in search and there they were.
  4. They are now revamping the Retro, the Metro is a far better newspaper than the Star, it’s absolutely terrible and Nancy Fielder thinks she’s doing a good job.
  5. Without me having to go down to Queens Road B & Q, does anyone know if there’s long queues there? I can stand for so long but over half an hour it starts to get to me, I’m not idle it’s just I’m over seventy and can’t stand for long and please no wise cracks or digs.
  6. Tilleys on the corner of Shoreham Street and Charlotte Road, comics are the only thing he deals in.
  7. Flyers and menus are unwanted in my letter box.
  8. The advert with a mob doing an assault course in white t shirts, they get caked in mud etc but when they remove them for the washing test, the shirts underneath haven’t a speck of mud on them, this is just impossible. if you can ask your mum or gran, they know how to get clothes clean.
  9. True but Bond isn’t seasonal is it.
  10. We are not out of July yet and already and Christmas films are being shown in the Virgin tv package.

  13.
