    Great Youtubes

    Anything from Aida to Sandy Nelson, from Sorcerers Apprentice to The Platters is what I play when cooking tea. Everything except that ridiculous apology for music, rap. Cheers, Bobj.

    What has changed in your lifetime?

    Wages. My first wage was £2/10 a week, or, £130 a year, that was in 1957. Cheers, Bobj. "

    Impressive! Cheers, Bobj.
  7. I'm not laughing at you, @Quoll, just your statement, “getting up at 2am for a cold shower,” it reminded me of Roebourne and trying to get a cold shower at 10 pm and the water being hot enough for coffee! And trying to sleep in Wyndham, WA when it was 43 C (110F ) at midnight. Cheers, Bobj. Apologies for digressing, folks, as this is, in my ‘umble opinion, a rather good thread.
  8. Will Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the President of Egypt demolish all the pyramids and ancient statues in Egypt? I wasn’t there at thr time, but I do believe that these edifices were built using slave labour... Cheers, Bobj.
