Re: The Barnaby

[quote Tom Pepper][quote SteveO]Can you tell me if the Barnaby was the pub that had the bar that was covered in coins or was it the Prince of Wales in ruby street thanks
Steve[/quote]

As a patron of both pubs from my misspent late twenties to early forties, it was The Barnaby that had the coins, (old pennies?) stuck in the surface of the bar, it was run by George Cottle, and his wife Maureen, who also had the Red Cow in The Grange.
The Prince of Wales in Ruby Street was run by Teddy Haines, or maybe Haynes, not sure of the spelling.
At the time that I used the Prince of Wales, I was heavily involved with a Polish girl, who could have won the Miss World contest had she deigned to enter it, “our song” was Rod Stewart’s Maggie May, and it was played to death in that pub, no wonder we were always in there.[/quote]

Ironically, the Barnaby was the first pub I had to get a pint in with a pound coin, I tried to wave it around for the barmaid to see, like an old pound. It was match day, I was there a while.

Hi

I am new to this site.

I was born in Polock Road Elephant and Castle in 1952 and moved away while still a child. I would love to chat to anyone who lived in the area around that time.



Look forward to hearing from you

Hi everyone. Just found this site! I was born in the Elephant Polock Road 1952 and moved away while still a child. Would love to chat to anyone who remembers the area from those days. Mags Clark.. Formerly Guilfoyle.

Boroughonian I honestly was under impression that they had banned battery hens? Saw a programme last years about some ladies knitting waistcoats for ex battery hens...



Re: Animal welfare

I e mailed the RSPCA asking the question, they replied asking me if I could take a couple in as pets! Boring pets but cheap to keep I suppose.



Animal welfare

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 14:00:05 +0000

I have this concern.

I had quite an addiction to the Chicken Cottage, in Lower Marsh, BBQ wings. Every wing had the bone snapped in two, I became a little uneasy about it and stopped buying them (I should really have looked further into it).
Mrs b has been buying the frozen Southern Fried wings from Tesco, same thing, all the wings (there's two bits to this, I'm talking about the drumstick bit) are snapped.
I now have this vision of Chickens having their wings snapped and stuck in cages.
I have a feeling I'm a bit behind the times and that this is accepted practise, is it?

Dear MissyB....print out which report and enlarge it and stick it on shop door...:-)



Re: Black Friday

To compound my stupidity, missyb, who runs a small business, informed me last night of the impact of Black Friday on small businesses and that they struggle to keep up with the big companies.

That's me told.

Re: Nigel Farrage

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 12:19:10 +0000

No Paramount, that would mean the moaners wouldn't be able to cry lie, from what I can make out, that's the only lie they can pull up.

Whereas I can pull up plenty of remainer lies and disingenuousness.

The latest being Carney, he was interviewed by someone on James Obriens show (it was a real moanfest).
Now, remember what Stuart Rose said in the lead up to the referendum? That wages would probably rise if we voted out? That was honest of him.

Carney worded it slightly different the other day, he said that there will be more pressure on companies due to a falling rate of migration and a smaller labour pool.... = they have to pay more for the labour= higher wages.

What working class Briton would say no to that? A lied to one.

Absolutely... UK should leave immediately walk away and present our bill which can go to NHS etc. as our Jacob says



Re: Nigel Farrage

Oh how the liars mocked when Farage said that there will be an EU army. Of course Clegg and co knew he was telling the truth when he said it, yet they tried to convince us that our Nige was talking nonsense, LIARS.

Boroughonian...my mum used to say every January ( in the old days when sales happened) they buy 'excreta' in ( my word not hers!) they buy seconds from manufacturers. As a youngster I never believed her until a pair of trousers I'd bought didn't seem right. One leg was two inches shorter than the other...I had interesting time telling store even in a sale goods have to be fit for purpose...and my right leg wasn't going to grow shorter!



Black Friday

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:54:42 +0000

Love it, wait for it to come around and save a fair bit on stuff I would buy anyway.

Last year I went to the Levi shop in Regents st on my annual visit. Bought a pair of jeans. As soon as I picked them up they felt wrong, seemed much thinner material, anyway thought nothing of it.
After a few weeks of wear, the stitching had come loose around the hip area. Never happened before in all the years I have been wearing them.
So I took them back. They really didn't want to change them, suggested that they could re-stitch them, obviously I wasn't having that. I demanded a new pair and suggested that they were not of the usual standard and that I was suspicious because they were bought on Black Friday, "No no no!" they exclaimed. Anyway, I got my new jeans.

Beware is all I'm saying.



Looking for a Tutor

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 08:11:25 +0000

Hi everyone, this is a question to the parents among you - if you needed a maths tutor for your child, where would you look for one and how would you choose? is there a good app for it or a good website? is there a place that holds such information about tutors in SE1 specifically?
Thanks a lot!
Noa

Pea bhaji, lovely.

Didn't have Gram flour so used plain and had a lemon instead of lime. I made a mint yoghurt.

Really nice with the yoghurt.

Don't need any more books Boroughian but will send a cheque or donate on line to the hospice.

[quote kirkwoodbrushes][quote boroughonian][quote EdgarMi]I agree. Powell spoke so well, unmatched by any today.[/quote]

I disagree, Galloway matches anyone I have ever listened to.

So good is he, that the mainstream media outlets have gone cold on him. No longer does he get asked to do QT, or does he get invited to Sky. He feels that it is solely down to his ability to express his anti EU views from a left wing perspective.
He wonders how Corbyn has u turned on the matter (he's known him a long time) and he wonders how on Earth the TUC can be pro EU, so do I.[/quote]

Do they not want him there or does he turn them down? Either way I agree, Galloway is untouched by anyone. Great speaker.[/quote]

They are not inviting him on, according to him.
