  1. Ah robin hood. "dah da da dada dah da da daaah, sproing whoosh boing," and cue the music. they do show that on talking pictures as well on certain days. They do quite a few of the old series that used to inspire us kids to go out and try and maim each other with home made bows or swords made from pailings nicked out the fence Then there was the likes of ivanhoe and lancelot which was responsible for many a mop or brush to go missing to be used as a lance along with the bin lid as a shield. Some of those games between us kids would make the battle of Hastings seem like a re-enactment
  2. watched miss robin hood the other night. Margaret Rutherford was the main star but a host of,now, familiar faces in supporting and minor roles. James Robertson Justice playing his usual loud villainous roll sid james as a cabbie. reg varney as a copywriter and Dora Brian as a barmaid. a silly comedy but worth the watch if you have nothing better to do.
  3. Managed to speak to my sister who seems to think that donald was either ernies son or his youngest brother. She also seems to think that they were the owners of elwells scaffolding firm in warrington. The only people that she can remember running that off-license was a family called moors whose son was called chris. spoke to my younger brother as well and he has it in his head that the person that ran the offlicense beofre the moors took over was an elwell. how correct that is though is open to question. still working on any photo's but that may take a while There is a
  4. Historical accuracy? when has that ever mattered in a Hollywood film, or even accuracy of any kind. According to hollywood the americans have won every war they have ever fought in against all-comers from across the galaxy and beyond. They have to be "seen" to be doing the "right"thing when it comes to pandering to whatever the latest "politically correct" trend is. last year it was women actors, this year it is black actors, next year it will no doubt be chinese actors. no doubt at some future event it will be black female transgender chinese dwarf cyborgs or something similar.
  5. Not been able to get hold of her yet. been busy with brothers hospital visits but will try today she was supposed to come over but not sure if she is still self isolating or not. Will have a look through my collection of pictures to see if i have anything. Not an easy task as over the last fifty odd years i have amassed quite a collection and i those days cameras were classed as a luxury item. The only Dougie i remember from then was actually Douglas Fairbanks, yes that was his name, his family had a couple of harlequin great deans which he took for a walk. funny really as they were
  6. Or hint the one of them has got the virus to keep them out of mischief for a few weeks....🧐
  7. i dont know Why does the gov announce a change to the new rules from Monday leaving the covidiots to party over the weekend? Oh sorry i thought it was the first line to a joke.....🤭
  8. Why does that statement remind me of the spanish inquisition sketch from monty python.....🤔
  9. Can remember a donald elwell from alcard street but could not say if he or anybody of the family still live in the area. I lived and grew up in wilson street until i got married in the 70's When i was around six or seven we moved across the street and our back yard was the one on the corner behind your parents off license. if i can get in touch with my sister i will ask her as she tends to know that sort of information.
  10. The seven dwarfs have been told they can only gather in groups of six. One of them isn't happy......🤭
  11. Did notice that she had passed away. I always remember her in the avengers from my youth think just about half the young male population of the time had similar feeling latch.....🥰🥰 Did also see that Alan Minter has died as well only 69.
  12. They succeed in getting elected time after time does that count?.....🤭
  13. A tough defensive game by both sides. Was impressed by Doro's performance. Seemed very keen to get stuck in from the moment he came onto the pitch. Be interesting to see how the catalan-wigan game goes on saturday first game with a crowd in the ground.
  14. So what about those families that ten or more kids how will it affect them? Mind you it could be a good excuse to shift the "travellers" from illegal sites or generate a few bob toward legal proceeding to shift them....🤔 Wonder how long it will be before the "I TOLD YOU SO" brigade start shouting the odds in parliament. (be interesting to see how much the "expenses" bill comes to this year)..🤨
  15. wonder how the domino league will sort that one out. four players and two refs all sat round one table the rest of the team confined to a six foot distance. Could work if they all wear masks and sip their beer through a metal straw. Dominos could be dropped into a cleaning solution after each game and dried off before being used again. Mind you would then take about a week to play a game considering the speed at which some players place a domino down......🦥
  16. which basically means they have as much idea of what's to do as a kitten in feather bed stuffing factory.
  17. i just googled it simpler and quicker than mithering nhs call centre staff. Either Warrington or Halton depending where the mobile testing station is at the time. Alternatively you could get a home testing kit sent to you.
  18. What their personal opinions are do not concern me, my only worry would be can they stop the leak and how much is it going to cost me? They could be dressed as one of the village people for all i care as long as they were competent (well except for the cowboy one of course)....🤭
  19. I cannot help but wonder at the way the gov imposes the quarantine restrictions for various countries. People coming back from a country on the latest list for qauranteening before 4pm saturday do not have to self isolate for fourteen days. Those arriving back after 4pm saturday do have to self isolate for fourteen days. How strict is that rule. Is it taken rom the time your plane touches down or is it from the time your feet touch "uk soil" a plane that lands at 1 minute to four will take about ten minutes to get to the terminal at the fastest so do the people on the plane
  20. Perhaps a notice in the a&e department pointing out the availability of the shuttle bus and live waiting times for treatment at halton with the message that it was an option to non urgent cases could be arranged. is that the one they show on BBC at dinner time before bargain hunt?
  21. it's a matter of transporting the patient. If they are to be moved to another hospital then it usually has to be done via ambulance. Be it a standard ambulance of one of the smaller ones. occasionally they will use a taxi firm for non-urgent cases and that all costs money unfortunately. What budget it comes out of i do not know but i suppose that they reckon that a patient sat for four hours in a warm environment waiting to be seen is more cost effective than getting them to another place that "could" see them quicker. after all the cost of heating is the same no matter how many patients
  22. My point is that do do that takes up time.if every patient takes up half an hour minimum and they have to spend twenty minutes cleaning then only two patient can be seen by that station in an hour. not sure how many assessment stations there are in a&e but i don't think it is many Quite a few of the patients seem take up more than an hour and if they need to be admitted to a ward could be waiting for that for two or three hours or more. all of which takes up space in the assessment areas and adds to the waiting time of other patients. add to that the fact that each station would not h
  23. Or it could be that each bed/station has to be cleaned prior to the next patient being assessed .
  24. Get some interesting little snippets on there at times from the archives. people holidays films and the like. What always used to amuse me about no hiding place was the titles at the beginning. That uniformed copper who stepped out to "stop traffic" when the two motorbikes and the police car came along. They were the only vehicles on the road at the time.
