  1. When should we truly be ourselves.

    On this website we could be said to hide our identity !

    On Facebook etc should we be ourselves .

    The risks of identity theft are great if we read some accounts or newspapers.

    Obviously people use fake profiles to cause mischief and insult others.

    Big business and even governments local and national are using social media to influence our opinions.

    Bedlington is no exception.,

    My question is ‘when is it important on social media to be truly yourself.’ Possibly never.

  2. 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.

  3. 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’ and current problems take     over.

    i agree with Billy Connelly ‘Life becomes an adventure’ at this advanced old age


  4. 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. 

  5. 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.
