  7. Has anybody noticed?

    that egg thingy ma jiggy whatsit.. the date was decided in 664 at the diet of Whitby in case anyone cares (no that's not winkles and fish and chips by the pier whilst dressed in black and wearing very odd make up) There is a Mithraic temple in someone's back garden just south of the west road afore you cross the A1. I have a cunning plan to upset everyone (apart from the retailers) -- adopt both the Julian and Gregorian calendars and that way you can have double the misery of easter and xmas. referring to earlier posts -to clarify certain physiological qualities of the serpentae and their herpetological ilk -- they do NOT have 'arses'
  8. Has anybody noticed?

    We haven't even got them thing-a ma-jiggy-me-bob eggs off the shelves and the members are pushing for that thing-a ma-jiggy-me-bob retail event in December! Whats this world coming to
  9. Has anybody noticed?

    What a topic? Interesting and funny to read. All that remains is to say Happy Easter but that could be controversial. Resurrection with eggs. Then there is Mithras. Blackadder would certainly have a few comments to make about this topic. Maybe even a new series of programmes.
  10. Councillor Robinson - February 2018.

    Good to read Malcolm. Informative and shows your dedication to our town. One day I hope it becomes easier to communicate with all the others involved. Sadly politics is not for the faint hearted. Keep on keeping on.
  11. No More Forum Meetings

    Thank you to Brian and all who have contributed to making the Forum meetings so special. The regular meetings will be a miss to Bedlington. I have good memories of the meetings I attended . People did not always agree ! The Red Lion after these meetings always helped to put things in perspective. Bedlington will rise again to the glory days.

  13. Happy Birthday Brian

    Happy Birthday hope you have a good year
  14. Husbands and wives circa 1912

    Maybe of interest if anyone has spare time. I found this newspaper article in an old Dictionary of Domestic Medicine.
  15. Sainsbury’s has committed to paying staff well above both the national living wage and voluntary “real” living wage by raising the basic rate by £1.20 an hour. From September, staff in the North East will get paid at least £9.20 an hour, which means Sainsbury’s employees will have the highest basic pay of supermarket employees. Currently, Aldi is the top payer with a basic rate of £8.85. Hopefully, other supermarkets will soon follow their lead. We’ve had a browse of which jobs are on offer at major supermarkets in our region. They include some roles at Sainsbury’s in Northumberland.
  16. Last week
  17. Has anybody noticed?

    somehow the latter comments put me in mind of a cartoon of Sylvester with some yellow feathers in his gob saying -- 'weren't me !! honest' (however the really satisfied look on Sylvester's face betrayed the truth (Merchant of Venice) it will out like feathers in ones throat). perhaps we should rewrite the 'spam' sketch and song - substituting 'squab' no offence intended Vic - was referring to the speckled Jim - where allegedly a certain officer brought down a pigeon and was sustained by same. interestingly it was a serious offence to kill pigeons during WW1 in the trenches. I have a friend who lives on the Blackadder- yes its a real place/river and is a colonel but is seconded to royal duties so will ask if he can take this to the highest authority (Madge) for an opinion
  18. Happy Birthday Brian

    Happy birthday @Brian Cross
  19. Happy Birthday Brian

    Happy birthday Brian..........
  20. Has anybody noticed?

    Hope they had the pigeon in red wine sauce!
  21. Has anybody noticed?

    Very true CL that is exactly how it happened, I would have made it quite clear that it wasn't me if I thought anyone was going to see it as being "the other me" I wouldn't really call them a culprit rather than the satisfied diner.
  22. Has anybody noticed?

    It was a fair assumption, Vic. You did say that "they were very tasty". Of course, the real culprit could have told you that.
  23. Has anybody noticed?

    I don't understand that comment "we now know the alter ego of Vic Patterson" also " is this because of the culinary deviance of Vic?" I hope you don't think that it was me who ate the bird! I think you made a wrong assumption that it was me who ate them, not guilty.
  24. Happy Birthday Brian

    Happy birthday Brian, hope you have a great day.
  25. Happy Birthday Brian
