  2. Do you remember when
    Started by Blackrock 05/07/2018

    This hot summer weather set me off day-dreaming about the school holidays we had as kids, and that led to other childish memories. Where have the years gone ? Do you remember when: Boys wore shorts till senior school and girls had large blue knickers and grey skirts. We played 20-a-side football...

  4. How Men Face The Equality Situation
    Started by said 05/07/2018

    Was down at Ainsdale beach yesterday. There were two Rangers in a Jeep struggling to dampen down the sand at the entrance so that cars could drive over it without getting bogged down. One was a male ranger and one was a female. The poor male was struggling, in the cool of the cab, trying to move...

    Started by melanieb 04/07/2018

    We went to Ainsdale beach yesterday with our grandson and it was idyllic. The beach was clean, the tide was in and a parking fee of £5 is reasonable especially as we weren't packed in like sardines. Compare that to the beach at Southport - what's left of it - and it's diminishing by the month. ...
