i went to school in '68 and things were much the same then, but by '75 when I went away to school those games were on the wane. playing in the street wasn't the done thing in our area, but we had freedom to roam around- it was the increasing number of cars which started to stop that freedom- at 10 I often cycled down the upper richmond from Barnes to Richmond- I'm now an experiemced adult and I'd never risk it now!!

squrlz4ever i think what bothered me most was the whitening of her skin. the desire to be fair skinned seems to be common in most cultures and thats a real shame.

buttersrules as does North Wales- but here in the civilised south its seriously hard. i use a handful of shampoo, my mother in Wales uses a teaspoon. I've flooded out the house with foam on several occasions by going on autopilot

DerryNH prods- protestants. Memories of Iain Paisley loom, then too many Irish catholic bar flies- of course its ridiculous but the accent catches on some inner voice and sniffs. Certain accents I link with intemperate habits which i found scary as a child, and while I'm long past that it does still make me react

TBH i'm mostly coffee but in a hurry its a tea bag, but I do still have a silver pot and proper cups, the rules still hold though. I have to say I.m on the fence re filtered water, soft water certainly makes a nicer cup unless you use the Yorkshire version for hard water.

Gerry1of1 id agree with her, no matter what I simply cannot. catholics are intemperate, prods plain intolerant. Americans pretending to be Irish are just deluded.

For some reason we have paedophiles- i'm not sure if we know yet whether they are born or made- because such is the culture of revulsion about the subject even talking about it gets people upset. We really do need to be able to discuss it though- because as things stand someone who is attracted to children but has never acted upon that impulse cannot ask for help without risking their life. Acting upon the impulse is wrong, it is both physically harmful, and mentally harmful- some of the latter is due to shame felt by the child- who should never feel a second of shame. Part of that problem is that we do not talk about such things to children- we we should, to keep them safe they must be unafraid to talk about an adult who is being inappropriate. We cannot, should not, police thoughts- actions are concrete- so we do need to get to a point where those who feel these terrible urges should feel able to seek help in safety so that they are never driven to act on them. Normal- depends how you define normal.

given I haven't watched a film or telly programme for well over ten years now it'd probably be fine. Interesting thing about that film, while watching it I was duly terrified, but the second it ended the fear went- unlike other scary type films which were fine when watching, but left me rather unwilling to get up for a pee at 2am

well ladies and gentlemen, new house, new laptop- same old crap though and I'm working quite a few hours but all else similar. Plant a tree or three every day, quit the plastic and make a fuss about climate change- its probably too late but its always worth a try.

johncourage Hahahahahahahahhah- hopefully Brexit IS dead- notice how the morons who instigated it, illegally spent and lied have now run for cover because they could not pull it off.

emmettyville I think it's bloody hilarious- the twat wanted to play politics- well this is it. A large balloon is far less offensive than imprisoning children, or depriving citizens of healthcare, or stirring up hate against anyone with a tan, or insisting that a well educated articulate and attractive president must be a muslim kenyan simply because he is black.

No waterproof boat??? You have to be especially stupid to be a racist in the first place- but statements like this do really hammer to point home.

Brilliant idea- death happens, and until fairly recently was familiar to us all. People died, were laid out, were seen and touched by the family. Its far easier for a child ( especially a young child) to come to terms with the death of a close family member if the concept of death isn't alien. There is nothing to fear about a dead body, the only thing to fear is the process of dying, and we should talk about death, and sex and birth freely and openly with children to ensure they understand, can ask questions and navigate this stuff when it happens.

Its rather sad, there is a resurgence of crafts such as knitting,sewing etc- with proud people posting their-well-inferior skills-with pride. My dressmaking was never great as I am not good at patient plodding, but even my rusty efforts beat some stuff- lace making is really difficult and in practiced hands its done really quickly so I can see it being a lost art.

kelly_hanna Oh dear sweetie, I don't know how they pay in the US- its not at all bad in the UK. I know rather more than you would think about the subject which is precisely why I refuse to glorify it.

kelly_hanna The military serves industry, even in the Great War it sent millions to their deaths. Sadly there is a modern fetish about those who serve ( signing up for a handsome wage in all awareness of the job) believing that they are automatically heroic- which is absolute bollocks. I wouldn't serve, virtually none of the army brats at my school would have served either- I saw what the war did to those who served- and while I have sympathy to those who get slaughtered on the altar of an advertising campaign I would be dishonest to think they are anything but victims.

FFS- of course they can, God is a human invention and does not exist- the millions of good and decent humans prove goodness exists.

There is no defending this- and if you do, realise you are a disgrace for a human. You are morally bankrupt.

Sadly, whilst I approve the sentiment, I cannot condone the idiocy. I agree that  our economic system is fubar, and the military is a disgrace,however I reckon that behaving like a sulky teenager makes life harder for those prepared to put in the work to effect change. The sentiments behind communism are admirable, but practically it doesn't seem to work past a certain scale- we need to go past Marx.

LordJim I agree, It's easy to romanticise someone with whom ones contact is limited. No doubt many of these men are charming, some probably actually not a massive threat, possibly done the one murder they would ever do- but reality isn't the issue here. You can paint a wonderful picture over them, fueled by short passionate visits and long letters....

I saw the first one when it came out, scared me fucking shitless, but I was fairly young. I'm not sure I'd enjoy being scared now, the last scary one I saw was Blair Witch- and the lovely thing about that was it scared you while watching, but didn't carry over to 2am
