How do I permanently get rid of Google ads spoiling my enjoyment of BHF? I never had this plague when I ran Firefox, but I recently moved to Google Chrome when one of my anti-virus programs decided that Firefox was a threat and wouldn't let me write e-mails!! Suggestions, please!
Not sure if I'm putting this in the correct sub-forum, but with reference to the much-publicised dropping of the 'Mother Of All Bombs' in Afghanistan, not one single mention have I seen in the media of the fact that the genuine MOAB is the 22000lb 'Grand Slam' developed by Barnes Wallis and...
I'm looking for photos of the outside and (preferably) interior of this restaurant, which was on the corner of Smallbrook Queensway and Suffolk St. I think it opened in the early 1960's and for a long time was a favourite place of ours for birthdays and so forth. It was the only restaurant in...
When I try to sign in to my Outlook (Hotmail) e-mail account I get a message "Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later".
This happens on both our computers here. Any suggestions, please? Thanks in advance.
Re St John’s Church Perry Barr
wow, one of my musical heroes!! I used to regularly see The Spencer Davies Group when they were the resident band at The Students Union at Birmingham University in the 1960's. Stevie Winwood had (and has) the best blues voice I have ever heard in a white...
Does anyone know where I can get printer ink-cartridges re-filled reasonably cheaply? There used to be a shop on Boldmere Road, but closed down now. The price of original cartidges is outrageous!
A short time ago I suddenly found I couldn't play YouTube or other videos on my PC. I was told to download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player (Version 10.1), which I did, but still can't play YouTube or other videos. When I try, I just keep being told I need to download Adobe Flash Player...
I'm reading "Lancaster" by Leo McKinstry, an excellent history of the aircraft, and which I'd gladly recommend.
However, he states that Lancasters manufactured at Longbridge were transported in sections to Elmdon where they were assembled and then test flown. I was always under the impression...
I'm sure I'm not the only person who gets hot under the collar when addressed by a shop assistant thus: "Are you all right?" My response to this (being an old grump) is to say, "Why, don't I look it?"
What happened to "Good morning, sir" or "Can I help you?"
Does anyone have any memories of the old Dyson Hall, which I think was in a street somewhere off the Lichfield Road? Was it Pugh Road?
My mother and father met there in about 1937 when they were both in an amateur Gilbert & Sullivan society that put on its shows there. I have photos of both of...
Today (August 22nd) is the 523rd anniversary of the Battle Of Bosworth Field, the last major conflict in the Wars of the Roses and one of the most defining battles in English history. And fought in the Midlands, too!
I've often wondered how our history might have been had Richard III won...he...
