The first McDonalds in the UK was in Powis street in Woolwich, south-east London. It opened in 1974. Cant go anywhere now without seeing the damn places. I still prefer the old Wimpy hamburgers with a plain toasted bun and a dollop of fried onions. They were orgasmic. Wimpy bars also sold PROPER mil...

Just up the road from where I live there is a HUGE PYO farm where one of the crops are strawberries. If you are local and know where to look, some strawberries have spread into the hedgerows and have multiplied in the wild.

I can remember helping my mum de-stalk strawberries and all you did was hold the strawberry in one hand and pull out the stalk bit with the other. Didnt always...

Very small bars of Cadburys?

Does anyone else remember the small bars of Cadburys milk chocolate that you could buy 40-50 years ago? The smallest "normal" bar with breakable chunks was 6d. There was a long thin bar (not in chunks) that was 3d. And they also sold a very small bar just wrapped in purple and silver foil for 1d. Th...

Eurovision Song Contest

I can honestly say, that the last ESC that I watched with any degree of enjoyment was about 1976ish when Brotherhood of Man sung "Save your kisses for me". I havent watched any ESC for well over 10 years now except the odd second or two while channel hopping. Thats on top of the fact I cant stand Wo...
