Ah. We did not have PB in Ireland but we did have Enid Blyton. Later we had the Magic Roundabout but not Blue Peter. In the 70s I used to love trips to Dublin where UK TV signals could be picked up and I was introduced to The Sweeney. Bowled me over - i was hooked. Big_Laugh

I think PB was way after Enid Blyton so it might have been outside your age range anyway.  Interesting that you say that UK TV signals were picked up in Dublin, whenever I've been in that area we've had trouble getting BBC radio in the cars that we've hired.  No such problems in Norn Irn though.

I'll try that again!

I guess Danny, that you liked 'Life on Mars' and 'Ashes to Ashes' then.

(Life on Mars was much better than Ashes to Ashes, but they were still good.)

Ok

Yes, TA - just a reminder of The Sweeney - where policemen were getting into scraps with the villains.

Throughout the series - as you can tell by their titles, the David Bowie hits often were heard in the background, too.

OO, David Bowie, makes me weak at the knees even now. EmbarassedEmbarassedEmbarassed Shows how much I watch TV doesn't it?  I did watch a programme on Dali tonight though, what an interesting man.  I've always been interested in his work whilst not really liking it but loved his sense of humour.

I'll try that again!

I like Dali, too. My son visited a place in Florida dedicated to him, and bought a special jigsaw puzzle for me entitled The Hallucinogenic Toreador. If you Google it, and find the image, you will see just how complex the picture is. Quite an amazing guy.

Do you know, I've never had a Marmite sandwich with anything else in it?  It just doesn't seem right.  My brother thought that you couldn't have brown bread and Marmite! 

I'll try that again!

Marmite???  Eeek  Bleargh!!  [Image Can Not Be Found]

Danny - I used to like marmalade sarnies as a nipper.  I wonder why no-ones picked up on the sweet sandwich niche in the market - been thinking of that for a while.  I'm sure they could be suitably 'foodified'!  "It's not just a marmalde sandwich, it's an M&S sun ripened seville orange and Lagavulin whisky marmalade sandwich."  Big_Laugh  None of you lot nick my idea now though!  Monster Big_Laugh

When I was married my husband used to have one jam sandwich and one cheese sandwich for lunch, everyday - I used to hate making them.

Shereen, I don't eat cheese very often so the answer is no. Frown

I'll try that again!
