  1. Wow!! The Waggon and Horses on the Lune in Lancaster. I d forgotten that place. We used to go in there before Lancashire county RU games at Vale of Lune.
  2. Watneys Stag bitter was a good drink. We used to always look for it on trips to London for the Challenge Cup final.
  3. It was CAMRA Mild month in May. There were many milds available in London. Mild was never a southern drink and the first 20 or so years I lived in London there was none but recently they have become available on a more regular basis. When I was growing up in Salford in the 60s there were milds from Chesters,Wilsons,Tetleys,Greenalls,Boddingtons,Hydes and Holts. (The first four were horrible for my taste).
  4. It was my favourite beer 30 odd years ago but it is a shadow of it s former self. There are so many new beers from small breweries these days. In West aLone In where I live there is such a great choice of beers. But unfortunately I m in SE Asia for 8 weeks and it s all lager unless you want to pay £8 for an Aussie or NZ microbrew or banana beer in Vietnam which is brewed freshly and delivered to street cafes and really cheap and very good.
  5. One can buy seating tickets online you know! I have problems with my eye and I can t see very well from behind the goals,so I am able to buy seats between half way and the 22m line at most Wigan away games.
  6. I worked in finance for the Mirror and after Captain Bob died his wife Betty had the cheek to try to claim her widow s pension!!
  7. It gave me a good living for 37 years and a decent pension!
  8. Elvis Costello received an award which is fantastic news to me!!
  9. One of my favourite R n B performers. I 've seen him maybe 10 times from the New Orleans Jazz Festival to an NFL promoted show at the O2 when New Orleans Saints were playng at Wembley. Unfortunately he d not been well for a few years but still a shock.
  10. Singapore is not a place I would think of as a place for a jolly. Boring place!!
  11. But Middlesbrough residents remember!!!
  12. Three days in Blackpool? I couldn t think of much worse!!
  13. I m sure most of the 'local' purchases were from the UK. We bought tickets from the Barca site because the Wigan allocation was behind the goal.
