  1. There used to be a UK police blogger called Nightjack, who was outed about 10 years ago and stopped writing. He wrote an article called " A survival guide for decent folk " which is still all over the internet. Interesting reading.
  2. I put an Offside Rule 50p on Ebay...it fetched 94p!
  3. Roy Hattersley (87 next month), and via an autograph-collecting relative, learned that Quincy's assistant Sam (Robert Ito) is still around at 88, and also Val Bisoglio (Danny the restaurant owner, also in Quincy), aged 93.
  4. She also went out with Ed Balls. Doesn't say much about her judgment!
  5. I don't think I could say that with a straight face either..George Constanza in Seinfeld says "I'm the opposite of every man you've ever met " to a smitten woman in their funniest episode, 'The Opposite'.

    Ahh was pikey

    The off-roader in the foreground is a Mercedes G Class, which currently retails at £143,000...
  7. He's currently a prospective Brexit Party candidate for the next general election, for Ted Heath's old seat. (Old Bexley and Sidcup)
  8. I think that's a modern one. 1960s Mokes had three oblong indentations in the side panels (between the wheels.) The metal tubes which hold the cover in place are too solid for an old Moke. Also has an extra pair of light covers on the front. Possibly a Chinese copy.
  9. Cue one of Rollo Tomassi's best articles, 'War Brides', which wasn't received very enthusiastically by the wimminz at the time... https://therationalmale.com/2011/10/03/war-brides/
  10. I think the maroon one is a Vauxhall Wyvern.
  11. Out in Stockport for 40 minutes. I'd just gone into the first shop on my shopping list, and the whole street went down. None of the shops able to take money, except the chippy which still had some food on the hotplate and lots of coins in a bowl.
  12. "Ten years have passed since I broke my nose"...The Police, 'Message In A Bottle. "There's a bathroom on the right"...Creedence Clearwater Revival, 'Bad Moon Rising'.
  13. Another unlikely inventor...the character of Roger Walker (the ship's boy in ' Swallows and Amazons ' ) was based on Roger Altounyan, the young son of one of Arthur Ransome's friends. Roger later qualified as a doctor and developed the Intal Spinhaler for asthma sufferers. Oh, and Reg Presley, the late lead singer of The Troggs, patented a fog dispersal system for airports.
