I love to remember things, not the horrid boozy nights when Sam had to be carried in, absolutely unconcious.  Awful!

I miss Tony Ratcliffe, he remembered every thing that we did and conversations and who was goid and wh was not so good.  It was rare that he said anything wrong aboyt anyone but he hated a particular Aussie who the lads christened Legs Maguire.  He liked brown speckled eggs which I saved for times when he ended up at our place on Stevenson. The school kids like theor memories as well, what music was popular, dancing to Shades of Blue.

Anyway enough enough. Things is none of of my era are around on the board and they never were, they seemed reluctant to show thir faces.

See Yah

I am a member of a Facebook page run by the ex pupils of the schools in Terendak Camp.  It is a very busy group and I log in every day but never ever have any children of 208 members posted a single message.  I thought that some  of the 208 people may have died but their children are still around and I know several of them went to Slim School which was the senior school and also children od Mountbatten School which was the junior school.  I often join in and some of the kids remember Shades of Blue band.  It is strange though that children of 208 people don't bother.

I would like to thank Lee for his expertise and also Martin for his organisational skills in getting us back to where we used to be.  Would be super if everyone rallied round like they did with the old MB, that was a really busy one with some interesting topics.

Lee or Martin, I still can't fathom out how to get my avatar on here,  any ideas or Apps you know about.  Anybody?

We used to have people from different outfits joining in our riveting conversations, but most have deserted us. This one looks easy so I might join in if there are some good subjects.  I will try and think of some.

Bye for now

I have found me way on to the MB and I now have the same login details as I always have had.  Nice to be back and I will go with the flow regarding the future!

My avatar is there but I did nothing to get it there.  I must be thick as two short planks.  These things confuse me, I will never get it right.

Was there ever any nastiness from the indeginous population though?

General Discussion / "Ten Pound Poms"
« on: 16 May, 2023, 10:10:47 AM »
This is a nice juicy topic.   Ten Pound Poms in the title of a new TV programme on Brit TV.  I am recording it but not sure thet I will ever watch it. My daughter tells me that the indigenous population was not very nice to the poms who were invited to come over to Oz by theAussie government.  It started me wondering how the Brits were treated by their Aussie counterparts and if there were many altercations?  I was given a clue when I was in Oz staying with John and Carmol Darling.  I can't remember this chaps name but his wife was called Camilla and he has since died.  I was livid that he was so rude about Brits openly to my face, but as we were in a shopping mall, I buttoned my lip.  >:(

With the other Message Board we had ages ago, I automaticlly went on there every day but now I have forgotten all about it.  I do go on Facebook every day and I am on a few facebooks different subjects - Marsden, Cats, Sewing but nothing interesting to others.  I miss the old one so much but maybe that would have gone the same way.  Ernie actually emailed to ask where I was and was still around.  So he is missing a bit of contact.  He is courting (old fashioned term) strong so I excuse him.  I emailed Alby Simpson the other day to find out if he was still breathing and he is OK.

I have builders in pointing the gable end and I have the Stones blaring trying to drown out the sound of the their drilling out old mortar.  Simon was recently home and he has really gone overboard with things.  New fridge/freezer for me, this pointing. new decking, new conservatiry blinds and so I don't have to get the ironing board out they have bought me a steamer.   

Anyway that is my contribution to the MB, hope to goodness Lee and Margot ae OK.  I don't know how I manage to keep soldieing on!

They got rid of Boris and voted in a Maggie Thatcher mark 2 who has lifted the ban on bankers bonus andallowing the rich to earn more before they pay tax.  Ordinary folk are having a increase in their mortgage repayments.  MP's are up in arms because rhe know that Labour will have a landslide victory in 2024.  God Fofbid.  Think I might vote Green for the first time in my voting life.

Bye for now.


General Discussion / Platinum Jubilee 2022

To maybe the lone rader of this post

It was a really enjotable event, with loads of spectacular happenings.  I was impressed with the drone things going on up above.  I spent the Saturday at my brothers Jubilee party, where we had typically Britiish fsre like indian delights.  We had a Jubilee quiz which me, my nephew and his partner, won easily.  Some chocolate corgis?  I .oved it because I like family gatherings and it was good to spend this day with my brothers family.  Simon arrives on the 26th August so there will be another family get toether with other family members.  My brother took me home on the Sunday morning and I watched further Julbilee things on TV.  Megan and Harry arriving at St. Pauls and they didn't sit with the rest of the royals.  They are getting their come uppance for the terrivble Oprah show.  The Queen wasn't able to join in many things because apparently she wasn't strong enough.  She is after all 96.
