  1. Well whatever peoples reservations it must mana from heaven for Netflix .......... And surely in these very trying times a bit of escapism is just what people crave for, The Crown series four had more viewers in its first week than Prince Charles and Princess Diana's real wedding had in 1981 as 29 MILLION globally tuned in A new report claims that 29 million people logged onto the streaming service to watch the latest series of the royal family drama in its first week of release
  2. A lot didn't rate him but I thought he was ok
  3. You don't know what your missing Obs.
  4. any people are the wrong people Although I was particularly gutted to lose Bobby Ball , he seemed so genuine and nice as well as funny
  5. It seems we could slip into a rollercoaster of lock up' and downs until we are all vacinated. Just now its lock down numbers drop so lock down eased and ...yup... numbers back up... Groundhog Day fashion
  6. Whatever needed to be done had to be done. Rest assured if Japan had the technology they would not have batted an eye at using it and celebrating. Just sad that the human race have spent so long and so much trying to obliterate each other. Imagine if those resources had been use to the good what a wonderful planet we would now be living on.
  7. Cheers Sid.👍 I had been pondering the question for hours but now you tell me it seems so relevant to the theme of the episode . Makes me wonder if the lasting memory of Margaret Thatcher by Her Majesty would have been one of mutual loathing or respect. Guess we will never know 🧐
  8. Just a question on the episode named 48:1 what does it mean/signify. I have done the usual googling but it only comes up with bible texts. Seems such an obscure episode title ?? "The Crown" 48:1 (TV Episode 2020) - IMDb
  9. Yes they are everywhere 😕
  10. He would probably shake up some of the players who are used to an easy going coach. I couldn't see them daring to pour a bucket of water over him like they did to Price at Wembley... He would flatten them
  11. It's a shame we missed Watson as there are not many decent coaches available at the moment. Apart from Brian McDermott.
  12. "Pity they can't do the same for those people who dump old beds, fridges,sofas..." The thing is Sid.......... That would entail some hard detective work and possible confrontation . 58 year old Grandmothers out in the park are so much easier 🤕
  13. We are in the middle of a national emergency and what do Hounslow council find time to do ? A woman has been fined £120 for feeding squirrels because it is classed as 'littering'. Maria Lachut, 55, was stopped by an enforcement officer in Lampton Park in Hounslow, west London, and accused of littering after feeding nuts to squirrels. She was given a fine of £120, reduced to £80 if paid within 10 days, while enjoying the park's wildlife. Only in this country 😕
  14. Yes your spot on 👍 The BBC began broadcasting in colour in 1967 and was looking for programmes that could exploit the new technology. Thus came the idea of broadcasting snooker, then still a minor sport, was the brainchild of David Attenborough who was the controller of BBC2 at the time.
  15. Yes having a colour tv was certainly a rare thing back then and all the relatives and friends would roll up just to look at it. Even in 73 when we got ours it was still something to drop into conversations as many times as possible 😄 and just for you Davy 😉
  16. I think it was 1968 as I remember walking into St Marys club and they had a colour tv that year ,I don't remember seeing one before, Ester and Abi Ofarim were on singing Cinderella Rockerfella which was No1 in February 1968.
  17. I notice today it is 47 years since Princess Anne married Mark Philips and it was at the time a major occasion. Why do I mention it now? It just brings back memories of me starting a new job at Thames Board and my doubling the previous jobs wage! I asked the wife what would she like as a treat to celebrate ...... Bad Bad Mistake 😳 Not a meal out or a trip to the hairdressers NO Only a new television with colour (the one we owned was still black and white) so she could watch the Royal wedding in glorious colour Now a new 23" Pye tv from the co-op was £249 which to
  18. I fear we may have missed the boat with Watson a very bad mistake.
  19. Since retirement I've had lots of chance to try different supermarkets and all have pros and cons but pricewise I guess Lidl are cheapest but lack of choice would put off some. I mix and match depending on what kind of shop I'm doing.Also it doesn't sell branded spirits generally.And I enjoy my drop of Bells in an evening
  20. All well and good in some instances but most gp visits get a proper look into the problem ie physical examination a phone call is ok for maybe 20% of the time but it hardly inspires confidence in doctor patient relationships. And lets not pretend this is just till the pandemic ends...... it's here for good
  21. Why isn't it? I really can't understand ; is it just a case of gp's don't want to be inconvenienced by having to work at weekends ....... Well I've got news for them others do from supermarket workers to call centre operators, warehouse workers and now even home food delivery drivers. And of course all NHS hospital staff from Doctors to Nurses and the cooks and cleaners 24/7 without complaint. It makes my blood boil ............ Here is a BBC news item from 2014 .............. The Conservatives have promised that every patient will have access to a GP se
