When your kids are looking at University to go to.


At one time, I had to do a couple of resits in the summer. I obviously didn't do much revision so, panicking, came up to Bradford to do a solid day's worth in a Bradford Hall (hall-of-residence) room before my first exam. I could hardly concentrate all day because of the racket coming from the building of a new block of halls (Shearbridge Hall) twenty yards away.

They knocked down Shearbridge Hall about four years ago and Bradford Hall last year.

I have never played a computer game; well not since Space Invaders in a pub about twenty five years ago.

I just wonder how much is spent trying to hold back the years? Plastic surgery, lotions and potions and hair transplants are a must for some people - and sometimes going horribly wrong.

When you see the sixth form girls on their way to college and you think "ooh I bet she's cold, she ought to put a nice warm coat on"


Wow! I hope I never get that old! :ph34r: :)

If you're really old, as in watched Benny Hill, then you think "ooh I wish it was still ok to chase after her and smack her backside".
