Re: silly things your dad use to say.

Another thing my old man used to say at meal times was "you better eat all of that, you never know where your next meal is coming from" Times were quite hard in the 1950 but he was born in the slums of Liverpool in 1909 and had known real hardship. I remember someone saying "eat up" there's thousan...

Re: anger.

You can't expect that someone who is in the middle of their work shift , probably with passengers on board, would stop, leave the bus & have a fight with you. It would be all over youtube in seconds & the man would lose his job. And if you laid in to him while he was trying to drive, you would prob...

Yes its accurate it dates back to the days when dozens of ships when back and forth from the North East ports loaded with coal for the power stations of London and the south east of England. Sadly no more. radar probably went a long way to close down poetry like this, it really is a brilliant thing...

Your dad was old enough to have fought in WW1? That did surprise me as you're not all that old. I ca...
