Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Crikey 92. The first this year I'm miffed about as it were. Must have been nearly 90 on the Summer Wine set. Fine comedian and apparently a gent to boot.

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

R.I.P. Norman Collier


He was the guest on a three day sales conference
I went to on Jersey. He did his usual act but the rest of the time he just had us in stitches.
We had a little plane chartered to get us all hom (where the pilot is not separate) and how we made it I don't know, he had us all helpless with laughter
A genuinely nice bloke.

Just reading The Secret of Crickley Hall right now. My favourite is Fluke, which isn't a horror story.

So Mr Rumbold collects on the 'Are you being served' Tontine.

My favourite quote from "Are You Being Served" was from Captain Peacock. The store was invaded by Arab oil sheiks, Mrs Slocombe says to Captain Peacock "you were in North Africa surely you can speak some Arabic" Captain Peacock to Arab "whatty wanty?" :lol:

I thought Richard Griffiths an excellent actor. His Uncle Monty in "Withnail and I" was really funny. The schoolteacher in "The History Boys" was also very good, but my favourite was the accountant in another Alan Bennett film "A Private Function."A very funny film. Anyone brought up in the immediate post-war years as I was should watch this film - it's redolent of the class system that died in the sixties. Has some excellent perfomances from Maggie Smith, Michael Palin, Liz Smith and Denhom Elliot

Obituary corner is for people. If you wish to do it for institutions or companies then do their own thread.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

'A Private Function' is a wonderful film, but for some reason it hardly ever gets shown on TV, and was unavailable on DVD for ages.
