  7. Yep, I'm 45 so really shouldn't be that old enough to remember it but I did go.... I knew someone at School who had their birthday disco held there in the early 80's just before it was pulled down.
  8. It doesn.t have a train station, so you.ll be lucky.

    MEANWHILE OP, a bit more notice would be helpful.

    Sod hospital, I have my desert boots on levi 501 jeans and a nice Ben Sherman shirt. Its time to pretend I'm 30 years younger. :cool:
  11. Sounds awesome, but alas am overseas. If it is going to be a regular event, I'll be there next time I'm home. Got a new Fred Perry polo shirt to wear too......

    A quick review of the evening would be good if anyone here is going.

  12. Ahhh Dumbfuckstable. We had a platoon there.

    I had lunch in the Wetherspoons there a few weeks ago. Full of sexy chavvy single mum types with prams and lit L&Bs. I loved it.

    I walked the Sewell cut across the downs. Beautiful.

    I lived in Caddington when I was training. Great walks.

    Bedfordshire is Britain's most underrated county.

  13. Got mine all hung up in the wardrobe.... one pink, one yellow BS, sadly the 501's are now a 38 waist, not a 28 waist

    Was in Primark last winter.... they were selling off those flimsy desert boots you got in the 60's, paper thin suede, but really comfy, for about £3 a pair.... got 6 pairs.
  14. Watched SoulBoy last week, reminded me what nutters the northern soul scene were. Love to go but it's a long way to walk back from, which for some reason I do every time

    I'll stick the tonic suit on and do a bit of toe tapping in your honour
  15. Oh yes, this sounded good. Alas I only picked it up today so yes please, keep us posted on next event.

    Also hope everything went well for with your angiograme matter.
