Braces (not the teeth sort!)

Any blokes here wear 'em on their trousers/jeans (pants if you're American/Canadian....)?

I've just bought a pair. Don't really need them but they look good!

It's the fashion now, innit?

Fitness First gyms - pricing?

I've looked at the FF website and can't see the prices for gym enrolment for the over 55s - seems rather elusive to me!

What about if a French STB were brought over to the UK. Would the UK channels also be put in the 800s as they're not French?

no there are'nt. In fact there's a few clips on You Tube showing this road route. Apparently you're only aware you're in the ROI when you see the speed signs in kilometres and not in miles.

The only club place I might go into with friends in Soho is Barcode. It's not bad in there. Elsewhere I avoid.

Actually much prefer the restaurants or coffee shops.

This 10 Christmas Bonus was introduced in 1972 by Ted Heath's government.

10 then equals 98 in today's money.

It is still 10.

Merry Christmas all!

Woolworth's - any left?

Used to be in virtually every town - sigh.

Anyway, have they ALL gone now? I believe they still operate online but I'm not sure about the actual stores.

Anybody know?
