    Twigs in pints?

    Hi, was watching Jonny Smith on the Car Pervert youtube channel earlier. A person being interviewed mentioned skilled craftsmen and guys who drink pints with twigs in them. A quick googley search showed me pictures of mugs with sprigs of hops in them. Not super helpful as it did not bring up...

    A nice article on LotSW

    Some of you may have seen this already but it is new to me. A nice little article on why the formula for the show was so likable. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/10428682/Last-of-the-Summer-Wine-Brilliant-flat-capped-whimsy.html

    Speaking Clock

    I remember an episode where Foggy impersonates the Speaking Clock. This got me wondering recently how many of us used to call that service with any regularity back in the day. Don't imagine many do nowadays with most having a cell phone or clocks or watches that connect to a server somewhere...

    A Happy 50th B-day to Paul Riley!

    Saw the article this morn. The actor of Still Game's Winston Ingram has hit the big Five O. https://www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/news/18375501.amp/ OK, looking at the date of the article I see I am a day late. Cheers. :18:

    Only When I Laugh - question

    Watched this show a few months back. Was slow to take to it but I started liking more as it grew on me after a few episodes. I discovered the show when I saw that Peter Bowles was in it and liked him from Rising Damp and Manor Born. At first I thought there was a central character that the...

    Navid / Still Game question

    I had the urge to watch some snippets of Still Game last night and wondered something about this clip. The guys mention that Meena has gone to the Cash n Carry store. Judging by the empty shelves I imagine she went there to get supplies Navid can sell. When Meena returns with the bags Navid...

    Paula Wilcox Upstart Crow interview

    I just stumbled across this interview with Paula and really enjoyed it. It is an older interview - 2016. I'm really liking the new sitcom Upstart Crow. Mentioned this in another thread some time ago. Seen the first two series and considering buying the dvds to get the 3rd series which I have...

    Portugal anyone?

    Hi all. Portugal has been popping up on my travel news feeds recently. Seems like a really nice place to visit. Some are also saying a potential place they would like to even possibly retire there in the future. I wondered how many on here have been there and what their thoughts on the...

    Expired Horlicks?

    I bought some Horlicks a while ago after remembering Foggy talk about it. Wanted to give it a try. Drank some for a time, put it aside and forgot about it. It is made in the UK, think some are produced in India. The date on it says Best Before October 31th 2019. It does not smell any...

    Some Hade Edge Snow Vids

    Noticed these the other day. Sorry if the title seems like click bait. The scenery is pretty and it is good to see some snow somewhere at this time of season. I know it is a bit too warm for snow currently (late January) in the Holmfirth valley. Hade Edge is just a few miles south of...

    Amazon Prime Video users....

    Hi, I'm wondering if there are any Amazon Prime video users here. I have some questions and not finding the answers on their website. -Is there a difference between Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video? Get the impression it might be two different things. -About the options when mousing...

    Still Game Oct 13th 2 for 1 tickets

    Don't know if any of you fans of the show plan to be in the area at the time. Saw this article in the Scottish Sun for half price tickets to their Final Farewell show at the Hydro. Remember - He who hingeth aboot get heehaw...

    Weclome Mat available.

    I was hit by a silly thought from the show Still Game earlier that had me wonder if they sell a 'Weclome Mat" online like what they had in the show. Felt that would be a hilarious inside joke to have by the door. Jumping online to one of my favorite sites (besides this one) - ebay I had a...

    Tea Time questions.

    I have some questions on tea time and eating schedules. Have heard of high tea, low tea and elevenses in various shows and not thought much about it until the other day when I tried to learn more about them. Found a few web pages with some bits of semi helpful info that I have cobbled...

    Thoughts on David Kelly as a potential cast member.

    I watched a little bit of a show called Robin's Nest the other week. For those not familiar with the show it is a spin off of Man About the House. Which also spawned the show George and Mildred. For those here in states, Man About the House was the inspiration for the popular late 70's show...

    LotSW themed boat names

    Hi all, I was messing about earlier with a neat little game I just discovered that takes place in the sailing ship days. You can play as a pirate, merchant trader or pirate hunter. The characters are cartoon-ish ferrets. Which has me smile whenever I look at them and think Compo would...

    Crowcroft Challenge

    I was thinking this took place around Holmfirth. Maybe from one side of the hills to the other. After re-watching the part where Ms Davenport tells Alvin and Truly that it is from Moreton to Thackley, I had subtitles on to hopefully get the proper spellings. Using Google maps in walking mode...

    Arkwright's till

    I got to wondering the other day while thinking about Still Open All Hours. I've thought about this before and did a search to see if myself or any others have posted on it. If we have then the thread is eluding me. Let me know if I have missed it please. If I have posted this before, then...

    Howard's stone worm possibly found.

    Seems like Howard was not too far off when he mentioned the possibility of such a thing as stone worms. Some relatives of ship worms that eat wood actually do chew up rocks. The article makes it to be they live in the water instead of people's basements, thank goodness...

    Can it be... Boabby = Nick ?

    A story about Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds popped across my news feed this morn. Talking about the the band's song Red Right Hand and it's use as the theme song in the show Peaky Blinders. Nick was asked if he felt this had introduced new people to the band to which he replied something along...
