I doubt many of the children link any of their dressing up with things like voodoo etc Pete. It's too deep for them to think about. Kids just like dressing up.

It's not that much different to what we did as children with our home made Guy Fawkes.
Although it's Pagan, the children see it as a bit of fun, I don't have a problem with that.

Best place Grassmoor  :) good community spirit, worst place Wingerworth miserable gits no jokes allowed.   >:(

Barley Mow?

Good news Fly  :)

I think it would have been very useful for DCC to have asked for some feed back from not only the management but also the fron line workers - being the drivers, both scimitar and eabbus are telling us similar ways of at least beginning to resolve this and I would think that their suggestions a pretty viable.
Pity, the drivers haven't been official consulted in all this

Husband: Oh, come on.

Wife: Leave me alone!

Husband: It won't take long.

Wife: I won't be able to sleep afterwards.
Husband: I can't sleep without it.

Wife: Why do you think of things like this in the middle of the night?

Husband: Because I'm hot.

Wife: You get hot at the darnedest times.

Husband: If you love me I wouldn't have to beg you.

Wife: If you love me you'd be more considerate.

Husband: You don't love me anymore.

Wife: Yes I do, but let's  forget it for tonight.

Husband: Please, go on.

Wife: All right, I'll do it.

Husband: What's the  matter? Do you need a torch?

Wife: I can't find it in the dark.

Husband: Oh, for heaven's sake, feel for it!

Wife: There! Are you satisfied?

Husband: Oh, yes.

Wife: Is it up far enough?

Husband: Yeah! that's good.

Wife: Right! Now go to sleep and the next time you want the bloody window open, do it yourself.

It's a sad fact of our world Pete.
We associate certain clothing with drunks and drug takers.
It doesn't make it right though to walk past without seeing if we can help

Yes I think maybe the Holmewood Hotel. It couldn't have been any more far roved from a hotel  :))
As we walked in the 3 or for customers already in stopped drinking/talking and we were watched - very carefully. Hence the supping up and going.

As for regulars having their own seats it happened a lot in our village Miners Welfare.
I found it really funny as if strangers were in and sat in a regulars seat, as the regulars drifted in they would all pause and look at the newbies.
Nothing was said but generally regulars would end up sitting in another regulars seat.
When the strangers left everyone would get up and move around to their normal seats  :))
When didn't go in every weekend but always sat with my parents when we did.
On one occasion as the shuffle began, I moaned to my parents saying' why can't we just say here, why does it matter where we sit!
I then got a lecture about who sat where and told who's seat we were sat in - so we had to move 

 :)) :)) eeee by gum I had tears running down my legs  :)) :))

I lived on the Main Street at Heath and we used the Elm Tree, apart from one evening when we took a walk into Holmewood and called in at the Pig ( I think it was called that ).
We supped up sharpish and left

I have enjoyed looking at your photo's ironsky.
There is however always something sad I think in the photo's.
They portray peoples lives of the past and I can almost see and here them in your pictures - if that makes sense.

Ohhh two of you on to it - can't wait to see your results  :)

No, we already have accounts with them so no catch.
The only thing I can think of ironsky is that if you have an account somewhere else which is about closed you can take the details to them and one of the 'switching team' closes it and maybe opens an account with them?
As we already have accounts with the H we didn't have to do that.

I'm only stabbing a guess as hubby went in alone as I had other things to do.
The £100 is gratefully received anyway  ;)
