  1. The supply chains that are now called the County Lines worry me. It seems there are serious consequences for the people who are persuaded to get involved. The risk to mental and physical health are very real. Relief from some horrible illness is obviously acceptable but how as a society we deal with the criminals is an issue of concern.
  2. Best wishes from the cold country. Imagine a cosy pub and a fire while you sun bath and enjoy yourselves. Life is for living regardless of politics or temperature. Always something to celebrate.
  3. Another year older Canny Lass. RESULT
  4. You may not think this relevant to Bedlington but the questions about the EU are very interesting . In view of all that has happened it has had an impacted on us all.
  5. Sorry some are on the site twice. If you would like the 1961 National Geographic then it’s yours threegee.
  6. Here’s the rest of the article threegee.
  7. No idea why this has not been thrown out. circa1998 In Europe not run by Europe!!!
  8. For me 1969 was living and working away from home. On the night of the 20th (blast off was the 16th) I recall thinking its time to get home and watch tv on the rediffusion set .No signal on anything else. I recall a glass or two of rice wine. Underfloor central heating was a good start for the wine. The mix with three days of stirring then seven days to go before the Demi John was needed . History or Herstory. The decades roll on and when you have lived through seven it all becomes a story in itself. Trouble is that ,maybe , no one is too interested. Troubke at ‘Mill’
  9. Happy New Year. Why does fifty years seem to have gone past so quickly. Old age is the answer. Where were you when the moon landing happened .?
  10. Just an odd thought Malcolm!!! Was it Ronnie Campbell who talked about the Wansbeck Mafia ? Could that still be true. Surely not in these enlightened days. One thought / you could join the Labour Party and being about change from within. i hope that does not offend you too much.
  11. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019. Which road are we on ? Freedom or no where
  12. Sorry 3G the magazine has been given away. I thought there was no interest.
  13. A different time but maybe the same old story.
  14. This seems appropriate to Bedlington.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Happy Birthday (rather later than most.) Have a good year
  19. Happy Birthday hope you have a good year
  20. Maybe of interest if anyone has spare time. I found this newspaper article in an old Dictionary of Domestic Medicine.
