Re: Rugby world cup.

Oh well if we're only "ok" then that really means we're mince :) - I reckon that New Zealand will win it they have looked amazing, (never under estimate the Australians or South Africa though) Ireland could go far (hope Wales do well also - and England are already at the next stage). Whatever the ou...

Re: The end of Highland Toffee?

As I kid I never liked Flying Saucers they were over before you knew it (hate the feel of polystyrene and cotton wool arghh). Sadly I'm at the age where I go to nostalgia sweet shops and start trying old stuff mostly to my disappointment as my palate has changed as I get older of all my old favs (MB...

Re: The End of the Blue Peter Annual?

I used to love Blue Peter as a young kid especially at Christmas time but I never ever was interested in the annual. After the age of about 9/10 I got fed up with BP and progs like Crackerjack ("Crakerjack" lol) - I was more a Magpie lad myself moslty due to the effect Susan Stranks had on me strang...

Re: Rugby world cup.

are Scotland poor at Rugby? (are Ireland good?) I though we (Scotland) were ok not great but above average? Saying that I just watched Scotland snatch defeat from the jaws of victory against Argentina to set up a heroic defeat against England in the last game no doubt (or a total gubbing - more like...

Re: The end of Highland Toffee?

According to the Glasgow Evening Times it It looks like they may be saved as an invester is going to err invest - amazed its in trouble when it sell 11 million bars of its toffee a year, maybe the lack of free sweeties in comics has had its effects.

Re: Pop groups advertising comics.

Concerning the overseas prices I always found it strange that Malta was on the list (for so long) all the others I understand as ex colonies and with massive UK expat populations (New Zealand etc).
