Re. lightbulbs, I don't think the issue is with the bayonet/screw bit of the fitting, but the overall length of the bulb and its base. All of my upstairs lights cannot accomodate the low energy bulbs (the coiled flourescent tube designs) which I only realised after I'd bought them. The bulbs interf...

When did the term First Parting Grecians go? To my shame I can't remember whether it was current in my father's time or my brother's but I do remember it being mentioned at home. I seem to remember hearing it in the '70s. At that time some boys stayed on beyond A levels to do Oxbridge exams, either...

If a company is playing music that is audible to the public without a licence then the PRS should be taking legal action. Artists deserve their royalties. The Kwik-Fit employees should be ensuring that their 'personal' radios are not heard by others. Put yourself in the position of the artist/songw...

Computer keyboards

Here's my theory that might explain spread of infection on wards which, despite alcohol rubs on the foot of each bed, plastic pinnies, handwashing protocol etc - It's the computer Before I left nursing I noticed how, on the modern ward, the computer sits in the middle of the nurses work station.

Some time in the early '70s the morning at Horsham was changed to give five 40 min lessions before lunch. Morning PE had already gone and the houses had the improved changing rooms/loos. Also each person only had to make their own bed. As you moved up the school (to a senior house) things we a littl...

I find that Facebook is good for keeping in touch with people that I already know, it is useful as an alternative to text messaging. I'm much quicker at typing on a computer than on a phone (I have seen people touch type messages on a phone without looking at the screen, but I don't send enough text...

And funnily enough, Peter's family weren't all that far from us, and we often shared journeys to CH, trunks and all. I think Peter had a younger brother, perhaps two or three years younger? Two younger brothers! David and Steven I think. I saw David in July, haven't seen Stephen in a couple of year...
