I have only been a member of the Historic Coventry Forum for a short while, but what a difference it has made to me. It is so good to meet other Coventrians and share our memories. I feel as though I have a new set of friends. Rob your 'hobby' has turned in to a fantastic web site and I cannot thank you enough. I'm sure all the other members feel the same. Cheers Big grin Wave Thumbs up

And what a hobby this is! I certainly couldn't have picked a more rewarding thing to do in my spare time - and I couldn't have picked a nicer bunch of friends, either. Thumbs up The pleasure is all mine, believe me, and I'm just grateful that so many of you share it. Cheers to all.... Cheers Rob
Thank you, Rob!

Hi Rob, What's it like being famous ? You know the old saying 'Big oaks from little acorns grow" :0)

You're all so kind! Blush The immediate answer that springs to mind, however, is that the quality of TV programmes is generally so poor nowadays that I'd rather be on my computer for a couple of hours on most evenings than watching yet another "reality" show..... most of which are so removed from reality that it makes you wonder what planet most TV people live on! Lol However, apart from a bit of tinkering to make improvements now and again, this forum really looks after itself. It's all of you who make it what it is, and long may it continue! As for being "famous".... well, that's something I generally hide away from in real life.... but if running this website makes me famous.... then I love it! Thumbs up Thank you!
Thank you, Rob!

It's your comments about television that make me wonder what other members think on this, Rob? I have Sky with the full range of channels (you can see my dish in one of my photos) yet, like you, my hours of tele' watching amount to about twelve per week. I spend more time watching dead actors than live (UK Gold) kind of thing. I do like the 'wireless' (splerp-blip-bloop) sorry just tuning in. When I bought my first colour tele (1973) and saw programmes like wild life documentaries in full colour, (remember them from the 'Gaumont') I thought that it was magic, but even that has paled off this last decade for me. Yet I really do enjoy listening to wild life programmes on the wireless as well as stories and chat info. Maybe it's me getting old. A good commentator can paint a good picture. What does everyone else think? Smile
Thank you, Rob!

Until I was eight, when we went to my grandma's in Clifton-upon-Dunsmore, the evenings were a family, social affair. My mother had five siblings, most of whom were married and after tea, the table was cleared and the table cloth removed to reveal an old-fashioned, embroidered table cover. We used to talk about all sorts of things, play cards and dominoes and listen to a wind-up gramophone with doors. Then, for the Coronation, they bought a television. After that, the evenings were spent watching all sorts of rubbish such as No Hiding Place (Inspector Lockhart investigates), Sunday Night at the London Palladium and the 64,000 Question. I hated it! We never had a TV at home, although I did have brief encounters with the telly at friends' houses. My early working life was mending tellies, but I never really got on with the telly. Whenever I went to someone's house socially, I would always choose a chair with my back to the telly. It wasn't until later in life that I came to realise that it was those early experiences that had shaped my attitude to the telly. I much prefer listening to the radio, although, these days, much of that has become inane drivel.
