OOOOOH, I was missing so much this conversation, and missing you way more!!!
Hey, you are not that old, stop pretending ( I know, if you don´t lie, we are very close,so, if you start uploading newer things, more our age , we can say the truth, that we are 22 me and 26 you?)

Brrrrrrilliant song, don´t know how to counter attack ...Oh, i know, a song really related and loved by everyone ( maybe I should use it as my ring tone)
Cheers!

Good Morning, just saw this on the news...wow, and I can´t even race upstairs to get the phone :o
The commuter who raced a Tube and won! Passenger jumps off at one station then sprints 415 yards in 80 seconds between stops to get back on the same train with moments to spare
James Heptonstall raced between Mansion House and Cannon Street
He filmed his 415 yard sprint on a GoPro camera attached to his head
His friend Noel Carroll recorded footage from inside the carriage
Mr Heptonstall completed the incredible stunt in just 80 seconds

Well.... long ago my Mum knitted a little jumper for her first grandson when he was a todder.... it had two plastic "eyes" that moved.... gulp he is now 30+ and has two sons of his own.

Well my town used to be at the end of the Metropolitan Line, before 1936 it used to out to a tiny little village

The town still has a station but before the railways were cut back in the 1960's, it used to have two. This was because when the railways first come to the county, the main land-owner wouldn't allow it to cross his property, so they built the first branch line.

A lot of old stations were cut... and again Flanders & Swann are on the ball.  All the stations named were real.
