  3. Hi Symptoms long time since we've spoke hope your potatoes still cooking well in your spoon of oil🤔 I'm living in the land of Viktor Orban, don't think my mate mr Lavery would be impressed with that. Anyway remember the Howard arms was a Vaux pub Lorimers scotch on offer there rank the Sun & The Monkey were Cameron's Hartlepool brewer didn't like there strongarm & when Betty Stewart had the Northumberland arms it was a whitbread house unusual for a pub in Northumberland I believe but the worst beer in my opinion was Newcastle Amber ale it tasted like rats p*** anyway symptoms nice to see your about

  5. Reedy think I mentioned this before but there was the welfare park club which got burnt down they used to sell horrible worthington E. there is the cricket club which still sells alcohol 🍺 & the community centre which was behind the sun I also think there was a Glaxo club near the cemetery,maybe wrong on that one.

Thanks Alan I've been on there sites but not available thing is most soups in Hungary are made with chunky veg & meat goulash etc. Probably think I'm been pedantic but you can't get any liquid on your spoon 😂 But it's annoying remember when I was a youngster going with my grandma to my great uncles who lived in bells place on a Saturday for cakes & watching the wrestling nice times. My uncle had loads in he's kitchen some of them were solid silver "wouldn't mind some of them." Anyway just have to looking thanks again Tonyp

  20. I remember when I was a youngster the worse smell for me was the extraction plant at Glaxo Cambois,it was a horrible smell quite sickly. I remember my first job was there when I left school my clothes used to reak of the place I think it was an amine but on a windy day it could be smelt over Bedlington. Don't know if health & safety would allow it now after leaving there went to the navy,but will never forget the smell ugh ..
