    That John Lewis ad

    The one where the cross dressing kid trashes the house. What does everybody make of it? It's very well done in terms of photography, edit and the Stevie Nicks soundtrack are brilliant but what the hell is it about - what is it actually selling to me????? I suspect the Ad agency have sold them...

    Morning all - hoping somebody may be able to help so here goes.... I've got an iPhone 7 - this morning it asked me for my passwors rather than my fingerprint scan - this happens fairly often without an issue. I put the password in as usual but it keeps getting rejected. Anybody had this...

    Blair & Brown: The New Labour Revolution

    Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere. I watched the first 2 episodes last night on catchup. Really good insights into them both. What a Politician Blair was!! I knew Mandelson was a key player but I didn't realise how much.

    Memories of Posters

    The thread calling for Nobby and Legend to be brought back into the fold got me thinking about the good (and bad) people that have graced this board over the years. I used to always like Ned's posts (sorry, I can't remember his handle but I'm sure he was originally for Thornaby) and...

    SKS/Rosie Duffield

    This is an odd one and I suspect not as clear cut as it first looks. "Sir Keir Starmer says it is "not right" to say only women have a cervix" I'll hold my hands up and admit that I don't understand the debate surrounding Trans people's rights and beliefs but surely, science is science. What...

    Daniel Craig bows out. Overall, I think he's been a good "James Bond" but who's next? My preference would be Idris Elba. I think he could bring a moodier, darker element to the character. Who would be your choice?

    Shamima Begum on GMTV

    Did anybody see this? It was quite interesting - With Sajid Javed following up 10 minutes later. Good TV!! Richard Madely said that there was NOT ONE message of support registered for her.

    Songs in your head

    Do you ever wake up with a song in your head for absolutely no reason at all? I do - fairly often. It's weird.I woke up thinking of this one! This isn't a song I particularly like, I had to look it up and I haven't heard it for donkey's years. It's strange how the mind works.

    Blood Pressure

    anybody on here track theirs? I get quite stressed and have suffered with anxiety in the past. I generally worry about the smallest things, suffer with insomnia etc, which has got worse through lockdown. I thought it might be a good idea to get a BP monitor to keep an eye on things. I'm...

    The Linthorpe Hotel

    The Stockton redevelopment thread got me thinking about Pubs of yesteryear. My fave Boro boozer was the Linny I had some great times in there 79-83. Full of Students, bikers, skins, punks and joeys but generally very peaceful. When Kirby college and the Art college broke up for Christmas it...

    4 games in...

    1 win, 2 draws, 1 defeat. How are you feeling? I think it's about right. My only concern is the lack of posession. Plus points so far: Jones and Crooks Negatives: Looking frail defensively. Early days and we are going to get stronger.

    Hi all! I was wondering if anybody had taken a recent subscription and could recommend a package. I'm currently with SKY (broadband + TV with Sky Movies, Sky Sports) and paying £65 pm. It's due for renewal and they are quoting £100 pm - that's a hefty price hike. I could live with paying...

    Go to items of clothing

    What have been your faves through your life? Probably like many others, in my younger days it was always DM's, Levis 501 and Motorcycle jacket. Fast forward 40 years and a few tweaks: Blundstones or Red Wings, Diesel jeans and Schott Cafe Racer leather jacket

    Instruments you don't hear much these days

    Was just listening to this... Got me thinking - You don't hear much accordian hese days or Sax. There used to be a lot of Saxaphone in the 80s or am I being daft?

    Boro Kit

    I just noticed that they don't put the sponsor on kids shirts. Would you pay a bit more to NOT have the sponsor on your shirt? I'm not really into kits but I might be tempted if I didn't have to become a walking advert for a betting company

    I have high hopes for this Danny Boyle series based on Steve Jones's Lonely Boy: Tales From A Sex Pistol Hope they resolve their differences so they can use the music. "The Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook are suing frontman John Lydon over the use of their songs in...
