Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

It would seem from a number of the more recent posts in this thread that some of the forum members, whom I have long considered to be male, have suddenly changed sex! This clearly flies in the face of the latest fad towards gender neutrality. Members should therefore take more care over the way in w...

Re: The most beautiful sights you have witnessed

On one occasion when I was a small boy (probably about six years old), I walked home with my parents and sister after visiting my grandparents. It was a December evening around Christmas time and there was even snow on the ground, so there was a feeling of magic for me. We reached the highest part o...

The "Historical Hastings" Facebook group might be a good place to search/ask.

Re: Paving Studs

No, I don't think so - they are too far from the outermost parts of the shops to be within any curtilage. I didn't count the frequency of the studs yesterday (one stud per x number of paving slabs), but I would think that they are regularly spaced.

Paving Studs

In Queen's Road, outside Priory Meadow Shopping Centre, the paving slabs are inset at intervals with what appears to be circular brass studs, about one inch in diameter. Does anyone know their purpose?

Eurovision Song Contest

Isn't it about time the BBC pulled its financial support from this execrable event? This isn't a knee-jerk reaction because the UK finished in bottom place last night, it's simply a plea for the BBC to spend OUR money on something more worthwhile?

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Oddly enough, I'm currently re-reading "1984" for the umpteenth time and had to laugh when I read your post, cbe. I think that Orwell, writing in 1948 had a good sense of the way in which certain things might move, such as re-writing the language and erasing all historic references to topi...

Re: Mozart concerto on You Tube
