  1. Red-Robbo

    Sad Day

    I lost my City fanatic dad when he was 68 as well. I then took over his seat and that was the beginning of me being a S/T holder. It's weird, but when we pull off an unexpected or last-minute win, I'm sure I can sense him looking down. And I'm not the least bit religious. Condolences for your loss @BCFC76 . Through you and the person you are, he lives on. And so does his City support.
  2. Beat me to it. One of my faves. The album Still Bill is really recommended. Amazing voice which was powerful without sounding strained at all. BW accomplished what he wanted in music then got out of the showbiz rat race and lived the rest of his life on the proceeds. Admirable, I think.
  3. Sooo, were Mrs R not available. And I do prefer her to anyone else, she's lush. And were I 20 years younger. I might be tempted by Tim Yehezkely from the US indie band The Postmarks. Yes, she's a girl called Tim.
  4. Backwell: Land of giants. I was 6ft st 11 - and I had a mate who was even taller! The quarry was the only one in the country where the workers simply picked the stones off the cliff face.
  5. All similarities to Robbored are coincidental and entirely based on him choosing a name a bit like mine. Besides, he lives in tedious Nailsea whereas I lived in attractive Backwell.
  6. Moved in Port Zed a few years back. Patsy, his missus, is distantly related to the Robbo family. Before his heart got really bad, I think he made one or two forays to Ashton Gate. I'm claiming him as "one of our own". Well, us and Man City.
  7. Very sad to read Adam Schlesinger, half of the wonderful Fountains Of Wayne, has died of Covid-19.
  8. The daily death toll will continue to rise over this initial lockdown as those who've battled the virus in its severe form for the past 3 to 4 weeks lose the fight for life. As for the infection rate, I suppose it all depends on how many were tested. If it rose significantly in the last 24 hours, maybe it's not too bad a thing. Ultimately you'd hope the overall trend in the next fortnight will be downwards for new infections, but there are bound to be fluctuations.
  9. Starnes is very ill with C19 at the moment. He isn't in hospital, but he's far from well.
  10. I think they've now said you can contact your ex-employer and get them to retrospectively put you on a furlough, so you can be paid. It's good this happened. It's poor it wasn't thought of in the first place.
  11. My lovely family. Don't need anyone else. Happy with what I've got.
  12. A left field choice here would be Snow Patrol. Their two albums on Jeepster "Songs For Polar Bears" and "When It's Over We Still Have To Clean Up" were quirky, indie-fied with interesting songs about non-obvious subject matter. Turn of the century, they signed to Polydor and started churning out power ballads about lurve. As Mr Blue says, I tuned out.
