    Failed organisational name changes

    And Scotmid don't accept the Co-Op dividend/ loyalty card. On a similar note, they're still Opal Fruits to me and I don't like that they combined the lemon and lime flavours into err lemon and lime to introduce blackcurrant, they could have expanded to 5 flavours

    Coronavirus: Is this the end of physical cash? Will we go completely electronic?

    We used to line up at morning break time on a Monday to buy our dinner tickets for the week. As first years we were always nervous that somebody else was either going to take your money or tickets, so you'd end up starving during the day that week. Times were such that parents wouldn't have...

    Sit coms/dramas etc that could be rerun in the next few months?

    Until they were Furloughed a couple of weeks ago, the social media staff of Newcastle United were doing full re-runs of classic matches from yesteryear on a Saturday at 3pm, as if they were about to happen, we got team lineups at 2pm, then a minute by minute commentary as the match progressed...

    Trump’s obsession with hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19

    I've lived in Edinburgh for 8 years, I've seen them many many many many times :D Thanks for the tip, there's one 10 minutes walk from ours, I'll have a look next time we're there (subject to relaxation of Covid 19 restrictions)

    I also only know 1, he's my Great Uncle, he's 84, lives in a row of 4 terraced houses on the roadside at the bottom of a valley with nothing to his left for 3 miles and nothing to his right for 4 miles. He doesn't have a mobile as you simply can't get a signal in the house (I have to right to...

    Companies That You Expect to Disappear Soon

    The Argos in my local large Sainsburys may as well not be there, they never have stock, you always reserve and it's not available till 4pm. Now you can't do that at the moment, you have to pay there and then, guess what, 'your item will be available for collection after 4pm' Not good when I...

    Donald Trump discussion

    So that's who Mike Ashley learned his tricks from then (apart from the bankruptcy bit) Speaking of which, nice to see him (Ashley) reviled as much as he is nationwide now, not just in Newcastle, see, we weren't all just deluded, demanding Geordies, we sussed him years ago.

    Coronavirus: Is this the end of physical cash? Will we go completely electronic?

    You can pay into any bank account at a Post Office. You just need a debit card and the cash and ask to pay it into the account the debit card is linked to, done. (I'm working from home during this and the one day a week I'm in the office, I am instructed to get a taxi door to door, via our...

    Trump’s obsession with hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19

    I noticed that too when I was there, the only ads were for pharmaceuticals, insurance, litigation or cars, not for tourist attractions, supermarkets, confectionery or anything. And there was certainly not a millimetre of humour in any of them. The ads have to be so long to as @Bantamzen and...

    Donald Trump discussion

    Not from his business acumen he's not https://www.thoughtco.com/donald-trump-business-bankruptcies-4152019 You do have to ask, who does keep funding him if his businesses keep going under?

    We saw the helicopters fly past our school when they filmed the one in the North East where they ended at Beamish Museum (IIRC, the previous clue had been in s*nderland)

    April Fool's Day, 2020

    Fixed that for you ;) We go to Dunbar for a golfing weekend as often as we can, always made to feel very welcome and love a night in the Eagle (they share their late Saturday night opening with the Black Bull over the road so that they don't take trade from each other, one week the Eagle is...

    Your Teenage Celebrity Crush

    +1 My dad always without fail, every episode used to say 'what the bloody hell is she wearing?' in response to her 'wacky' fashion sense. My music favourites were always Bananarama, especially Sarah and Siobhan. I still think they're both hot as, and over time, I've grown to appreciate Keren...

    A mate of mine saw her in Sainsbury's at the Arnison Centre in Durham not long after Les Ferdinand signed for us from QPR. I'll leave you to come to your own conclusion ;)
