Re: Who Remembers?

But I carried on working through it as being out in the world actually helped me carry on; had I NOT been able to carry on with some semblance of normality, I don`t know what I`d have become. ) You 'got on with it' then Steve, full credit to you. That's the adult version of 'they need a good hiding...

Re: Who Remembers?

It's not just kids though, I know so many people who use mental health as an excuse now. It used to be a bad back that kept people off work didn't it, as it's something you cannot see/disprove, so the doctor would sign you off for a while to 'recover', although we all had someone in the street who w...

Re: Who Remembers?

I think there are real differences this time, and it`s not good. Exactly right Steve. And in addition to what you have written there, every other kid these days (and adults!) seem to have mental health issues and labels. Growing up I don't remember hardly anyone having a mental health issue, now it...

Not hard to see which of the two looks happier.
That's exactly it Peter. One picture oozes happiness, joy and fun. And the other is sombre, dull and uninspiring.

Re: Who Remembers?

I had the same Andy, it was great. The thing is though, that was in addition to the other stuff we did, playing out, etc. Not all encompassing, as it is now.

Re: Who Remembers?

Goodness me yes, I am really glad!

I've seen it too Peter, on TV a few days ago. Someone said there is an Escort in it too, but I only noticed the Capri.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

It makes you wonder with cars shows like Goblin Works Garage and Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars, whether there is an element of an actual business, as they claim on the show, or whether it is all make believe I have often wondered that too Andrew. They all seem to have registered businesses, but the...

In the car itself, I simply have one of those crystals-based units which are two for a quid in the pound shop
Aldi do a small rechargeable unit version of that. Works very well actually, for a car which is stored outside, etc.

Re: Car SOS Timescales

Nothing is filmed in the order you would expect it Yes very true.

Re: Car SOS Timescales

Yes, that's what I was trying to confirm, that the 1-2 week timescales given in Car SOS, are actually probably legit. As unlikely as it seems. I agree, the human stories are a nice, and unique angle for a car show. Seen Fuzz at local car shows, he seemed very happy to spend time and talk with people...

Car SOS Timescales

I've always been very skeptical about TV car shows and the usual can-they-finish-it-in-time-with-all-these-problems thing they have going on, they are filled with TV magic, interspersed with carefully chosen added in after interviews and edited carefully, of course. But in a recent interview I read ...

Re: In Full Colour?

I've never minded it being in black and white, and like a lot of us have read it this way for years now. So to open it up without warning and see it so vibrant and colourful, throughout, was a right shock! Of course, the extra costs will no doubt be passed on to us all, but there you go. It is great...

How many of you were shocked/surprised/amazed to open up the latest issue of the Capri Club magazine then?!
