  1. Could this be due to migration of the site to a certain brand new, state of the art server, by any chance?
  2. Dance Hall At Bedlington Station

    I remember going to Clarence Cooper's prize bingo in the Locke Hall with me Mam.
  3. 'We're off to see the Wild West Show' was another firm favourite back in my childhood days, when I was introduced to such charcters as the Oomigoolie bird, the Winkee-Wankee bird and, who could ever forget them, the Fukawi tribe. Ah, happy daze!
  4. Thanks for the 'Venus lyrics Eggy. They're basically similar to the one's I know. For instance, the Mabel verse was... The cook' s name was Mabel, And by God she was able, To give the crew, Their daily screw, Under the kitchen table! Has a better ring to it in my opinion, but I'm probably biased.
  5. 'Twas on the good ship Venus.....' Come on. You all know the rest!
  6. New train service for Bedlington

    Nice idea, but I've heard that the service is often delayed due to shoots on the line!
  7. 'MAY' & her 'Subjects'

    My opinion is that my opinion means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Theresa May is just another pawn in the game.
  8. Latest on Tesco site development

    I still remember the 'old wood' they 'pruned away' for our Lidl friends...
  9. Latest on Tesco site development

    Yes, but don't forget, a massive 15% of those new homes will be 'affordable!'
  10. Beware the 'i' Word!

    Given the fact that national debt HAS to increase year on year to keep the Bankers' Ponzi scheme afloat, then, no matter who is in power, austerity will be the name of the game for the foreseeable future. This scam whereby the Treasury issues bonds (IOU's) to the Banks to print currency from thin air, backed by nothing at all, and then pays them interest on it, is the prime reason the UK, and the rest of the World for that matter, is perpetually in debt, and perpetually at war.
  11. Oh What a Lovely Election!

    The whole thing is a disaster. We may yet end up with Tom and Jerry running the country!
  12. Problems with webcam?

    Hmm.... quality seems a bit degraded now. It looks slightly out of focus to what it used to be. May just be that I need a trip to Specsavers though!
  13. Oh What a Lovely Election!

    Probably just another Elite con to have XP etc replaced worldwide with the likes of W10, which has more backdoors than the local knocking shop. Paranoid? Who? Me? Never!
  14. After 7 years training and several more years in public practice, a good friend of mine has been found guilty of gross professional misconduct and struck off. He can no longer work in the medical profession he devoted his life to. He had sex with a patient. It was, he says, consensual. Neither was married, but rules are rules. Anyway, all that training down the drain. (**Lifts glass...**) Here's to Dave. A good mate and the best vet I've ever known.
  15. My girlfriend said if I don’t do page 7 of the Kama Sutra she will leave me. It's put me in a very difficult position.
