Hi all,

Following on from the very popular current thread, 'how old are you?', i thought i'd take the initiative in starting this one

I'd put money on there being two people who had no idea another BR member lived in their street/had kids at the same school etc, and they could be a useful contact to help you out with future problems, whinge about the local road system with, or perhaps even a new person to go down the pub with, who knows?!

So here goes, i live in Watford, Herts - Where do you live?

DD,

Are you thinking of the 'Life outside the BR' and the 'Cars outside the BR' threads of a while back?

As a long time occasional poster it has been very interesting to see the slow changeover of regulars of the BR as well as the slow evolution of some monikers. Many of the original posters on the above two threads post much less regularly these days.

There was a thread about it. But for some reason the last time I tried to access it, I was told it couldn't be found. Maybe it got deleted?

Wasn't it something along the lines of Mark asking you for a suggestion for a new posting name, as formerly it was Mark (Brazil). You were having a bad hair day at the time and said something to him along the lines of "I couldn't care less whether or not you come from Royal b***** Leamington Spa" or words to that effect.

Wasn\'t it something along the lines of...


I think Mark was in the process of starting his new job and was looking forward with small relish to moving into rented accomodation in the said burg. The name is made up of the initials you correctly quote (but in a different order), and arose when I was taking the pee at Mark\'s expense. But Mark will confirm or contradict.

Can't resist a brief word about what used to be known as the southernmost northern town (industry, hills, terraced houses on steep streets, etc.), which I've known for over 40 years and whose character hasn't really changed. It's the same short distance from me to the north as St Albans is to the south. Every time I want something fixed, the house painted, the trees pruned, whatever, I look north for prices that are always 25% or more lower than those coming from St Albans, Hatfield or Watford. So there's a soft spot for Luton in my wallet.

Funny you should mention those sun statistics.....they were the basic of a decision to move the Royal Greenwich Observatory from Greenwich, London to Herstmonceux many years ago. Unfortunately they did not allow for the night time fog and mist and the fact that the original historical records were highly dubious! The 2.5m Issac newton Telescope was originally constructed there (the largest telescope in use in the UK?) but was never very productive. It was finally moved overseas to a much better site (La Palma).

Where are you from? - Brill {P}
Flat in Fifth:
Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!

Growler:
Well, of course, we had it tough. We used to 'ave to get up out of shoebox at twelve o'clock at night and lick road clean wit' tongue. We had two bits of cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at mill for sixpence every four years, and when we got home our Dad would slice us in two wit' bread knife.

No Dosh:
Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.

Dynamic Dave:
And you try and tell the young people of today that ..... they won't believe you.

Mark (RLBS):
They won't!

There must be someone who has only ever lived in one place, and is not ashamed to admit it. Perhaps there's someone who has only ever lived in one house? You need to be of a reasonable age (over 50, say) for this to have any kudos, though.

Sorry to not reply sooner, I have only just seen your note.

It would be good to meet for a pint sometime. My wife is a bit suspicious about the Backroom, but I should be able to persuade her to meet up with you and HF.

Do you know a pub near the railway between Orpington and Ashford? Is there a railway between O + A?

Maybe we should continue by email. I'll attempt to remember to email you soon!

Cheers,
Andy
