Hi @Strutt G
Do you curate your fav YouTube tracks anywhere, like a playlist?
If so, it would be great if you could share it 😁


Ah thanks Marc, I would need to run you through the history...its an inexhaustible amount of tunes covering eras and makes my head hurt thinking about it. A little story, back in the day I walked into this basement shop in Kings Road 1975 aged 17 and spoke to the Don, thats Don Lets in the photo, re BBC Radio6. He recommended the Mr Magic album by Grover Washington, number 1 in the in blues and soul mag funk jazz charts. He said to me where did you get those shoes from, I said Blackmans off Bricklane. I went back there the following week and as per the picture, he'd purchased the remaining few bits of stock selling them at £12 when they cost £2.
Winkle pickers with printed leather snake skin made by Regency Shoes bond street - Retro stuff.
Just to add all the gear we was wearing was never sold in the high street shops and when the high street caught up, years.. later, it was not originals and that included combat - it was a very innovative and a magical time, finding clothes, getting things made up turning up at the record shops for the latest imports.

If your watching Don - I forgive you.

Oh NannyOgg, so pleased for you, having that on your doorstep in the middle of a pandemic must have been unbelievably stressful. Shame about the “naked streak” though 😄😄.

@Bev 

Unfortunately the point about them getting what's deserved is far from what actually happens.

It just means that the problem is moved to another area, where the trail of destruction, harassment, anti social behaviour and  noise is moved to another area where the current residents will be subjected to the same treatment, before again being moved on to continue the cycle, more often than not also leaving a trail of debts behind them.

Faslane and their subs, if that nicola sturgen lass gets her lifelong goal of scottish independance then your right they will unofficially be moved as the DOD wont have the entire fleet stored on foreign territories same goes for the airbases.so a friend of a very good friend drunkenly told us one night. Not sure they would go to GIB just in case the spanish try and nick em

Liverpool's 4-0 demolition of Barcelona.... :o


What a game of footie 😜😜
You couldn’t make it up, both strikers out through injury and still score 4 goals against Barcelona. 👍👍
​Hope Tottenham replicate the victory tonight.

Last Saturday my wife bought me my (2019)Christmas present - a 2nd hand push bike. I get way too out of breath these days and I don’t want this fuel tank around my waste getting any larger :) 

so what made me happy is that not only have I been out most days since owning it, I’ve been out with the kids most times too. And starting to try a little bit further With the kids or more elevation routes without the kids. I’m really starting at the easiest of easy levels but want to build up. The best thing is I’m actually enjoying it, want to go out in the bike and it’s a nice stress relief from work.

Oh my word Nu-Nu (the vacuum cleaner) is brilliant. Quick test run tonight and the dog hair is gone! I should never have waited so long to get one .


Great news, and love the name!😂

Is it one of those ones that bumps into a wall and changes direction to cover everywhere, or is it smarter than that?😎
