Re: Merry Christmas

Let's all remember - the original date proposed by the Catholic Church was not Dec 25, but Jan 6. That is why Orthodox Christians still celebrate it on that day. It became, for Roman Catholics, Dec 25 when they adopted the Gregorian calendar and had 12 extra days added to make up the difference betw...

Re: Armed Robbery

When I was a lad, late '60's/early '70's, as a boy scout (22nd South Shields Brownsea Hall C Troop, begorra!), I carried a 6-inch sheath knife and a hand axe through the streets of Shields and at campsites all over the north of England. We also humped around felling axes and other lethal weapons, an...

Re: War of the Roses

The Wars of the Roses is an awesome and bloody period in English history. I was really p*ssed off at the way Dickspeare butchered Richard III's history and legacy because he wanted to curry favour with the Chewdors!(Should never have been a Tudor dysentery!)

Re: Daddyo has passed away

R.I.P. Daddyo. You will be missed, you ol' bug*er. I always enjoyed your tirades, although I haven't been on as much recently. You certainly knew how to liven things up, and the boards will be much quieter now. :(

Re: Newcastle gets a mention here ...

This is not just an "English" problem. When we hear tales of women and teenagers being gang-raped and murdered in India, we aren't paying the attention we should. This is obviously an acceptable way of life in middle-eastern countries and the Indian sub-continent that has been allowed to grow in wes...

Re: Sir Ken Dodd

Yes, dear old Ken and his Diddy Men will be sadly missed. He was a fun part of an English childhood in the 60's and 70's, and then spent the rest of his life sticking it to the tax man! Good for him.

Re: Got any of these?

I have loads of Dr Who on VHS - but all after 1970, not before.
I have lots of other stuff on VHS, though.

No American muscle cars - Ford Mustang, Chevy Corvette, Dukes of Hazzard General! LOL
