I guess me too - I remember going past the team coach on the M1 in my Anglia 105E with my Dad. What a day out that was! Did Mickey Leach's header really go in? Incredible own goal by Keith Bradley when all seemed lost, river of urine flowing down the terraces ('we've got a horse up here! came the cry') and a delirious fan standing in front of us on the pitch throwing his shoe to us.

That's part of my dilemma, I'm actually quite fit and agile and generally in good health, so it feels quite odd queuing up with the other oldies outside Waitrose. Only did that once to be fair. Will accept advice re isolation though - makes sense. Well done all volunteers!

Still contemplating this as although I'm a qualified CFR with the NHS ambulance service, I'm officially in a 'vulnerable' group (age etc.) Not sure if I'd be any good at the phone conversation option. Mrs Hants is also always busy with Good Neighbours activities but they've almost stopped as many of the drivers are also >70. Keeping options open at the moment,...will support as much as I can in the best way I can, this amounts to staying home at the moment.

Classic Movie scenes (Funny/Serious Whatever)
at 12:52 29 Mar 2020

There are so many scenes in this classic, wonderful film that I can watch over and over again. One I reflected on recently was when Steiger and Virgil were in the car, looking at the cotton pickers in the field ...great Quincy Jones/ Ray Charles music as well.

Some great threads at the moment in these strange times. I mused that we could really enjoy a Netflix series of building Airfix kits, introduced by Victoria Coren looking for the connecting parts with Jamie Mackie's goal v Liverpool in the opening credits and Phil Thompson's face at the end.

I used to be a Senior Manager there and son is still there. I was asked once by a visitor how many people worked at Ordnance Survey and I said, 'well, most of them!'

Yes, with you all the way. Humbrol colours lined up for each model, duck egg blue for the Spitfire engine nacelle as well? The illustrations used to show planes & warships engaged in warfare...that stopped after a while.

She looks a bit heavy on Only Connect, but otherwise would possibly be a nice way to spend an afternoon. You could even have a good conversation about QPR and a quiz - How was it for you?

I think the Sunderland and Bristol Freighter were the two largest 1/72 scale planes. There was a shop in Bromley, (Dalton Stephens, top of Masons Hill for any locals?) whose shop window I always stopped at to see the latest in Airfix models.

I made a Handley Page Heyford (maybe not Airfix?) for my sons about 30 years ago, took great care over the bi-plane struts and carefully painted the crew, c/w sheepskin collars. It looked fantastic and it was such a pity as it gradually fell apart due to swipes by Mrs Hants' duster.

I wish I'd kept the first model I ever made, the SS Southern Cross. Worth a lot of money if in good nick and in kit form, a fortune as the blueprints got lost.

I think I've got one in my Love Shack?

In my garage, I've still got a secret hoard of old Airfix models, Mrs Hants thinks I've thrown them away. HMS Victorious c/w Fairey Gannet, Sea Vixen and Scimitar planes has just collapsed so I'm going to hide that in the same box. Sad or what?

I used to have a bedroom full of flying Airfix planes hung up on fishing line with red cellophane blazing from the cannons. HMS Hood was often sunk in the bath. I've since help build and paint them for my boys and more recently grandsons. The old instructions were far better as I learned terms like nacelles, cowlings, fuselage and ailerons ... locate and cement.

I gave a little whoop when she said that! I got the link as well. I got a few tonight including Sonny and Cher - wondered whether that was going to be a Groundhog Day link at first.

I was at that awful game. Didn't Keetch give away a penalty? - I seem to remember him lying down in the area, looking up cheekily at the referee (well known one at the time, forget name) who approached him, stared him in the eye and beckoned him to get up and awarded the penalty, taken by Osgood.
