He wrote the soundtrack to my teens, songs I will cherish forever.

In The Circuit - Bruce
I hate to be critical, but have just received an email with the merchandise for the 2023 tour. Whoever looks after this for him needs a kick up the backside! I quite fancy the orange hoodie, partly because at least it isn't black, but there are no pictures of the back, so no idea if it's plain and no size guide - are they unisex? Never great for me as the arms are always too long. I've long found his merchandise crap...

Now we can go to the cinemas again, I thought we needed a thread which is separate from the movies you are streaming. What's anyone seen? I have seen Belfast, amazing film with a wonderful performance by the young lad, whose name escapes me! 5 stars. Death on the Nile, average Agatha Christie, lovely costumes and scenery, good enough acting, 3 stars. This evening, The Duke, which I am really looking forward to. Report tomorrow.

Just wondering whether anyone else is experiencing problems accessing ATB on their iPad/tablet/phone? As I have said before, I have been unable to post photos from the iPad for some time, but now I can't post anything! I can, usually, read the various forums, but if I want to post, I have to use the laptop, where it works perfectly. I suspect it is my iPad which is getting on in years, but interested to know if anyone else has similar issues, as iPad still works for everything else...

I don't think we have a thread for this, presumably because non of us have been to many! Just booked Sam Fender in Birmingham in March - very excited to see him perform.

Where to put this - sport or politics? Is the Saudi takeover of Newcastle a new low for English football? Is there nobody whose money is too dirty and or steeped in blood that we won't take because it's going to make 'our club' great again? I wish Roy was around, I would love to hear his opinion.

I don't seem able to do this any more. I get to 99% upload and then I just get the spinning wheel - any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

It appears we have several hundred pounds worth of rock memorabilia in a drawer under our bed!! A book about the Incredible String Band (anything but incredible in my view) worth £99, a Pete Frame Rock 'n Roll family tree worth £200, a copy of The Face from 1990 worth £75! Weird what people will pay for stuff.

It breaks my heart to have to tell you that Rosiejaneymary (Marsha) died yesterday. She was a very regular poster on GL and one of the kindest people I have met there. She loved Bruce so much, her glasses were an even deeper shade of rose than mine! A genuine Jersey Girl. She had been ill for a while and was diagnosed with a form of Motor Neurone Disease a few months ago.

I posted some photos in the 'two wheels' thread and Steve suggested I start a new thread for old photos, memorabilia etc. so here it is. I am re-posting the photos and hope people will add fresh pictures and memories. The photos are of my dad who was a motor cycle trials rider back in the day. Motor cycle football and polo - who knew this was a thing!

Just heard that Mary has died. The Supremes were such a huge part of my teenage years, I find this news unfathomably sad. I shall play Supremes Sing Motown in her honour.

I am hoping some of you may be able to help me with something I am working on. A friend and I have volunteered to produce an on line service for our church on Mothers Day/Mothering Sunday which, fo us, is on 14th March. We have decided to look at the history of the day and if or how it is celebrated in other parts of the world. If any of you feel like answering the following, I would appreciate it. When do you celebrate Mother's Day - March or May? Is it a purely secular event in your country? Do you call the day Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday? Are there any traditions associated with the day which you observe - either national traditions or family traditions? I know I could just use Google, but personal stories are so much more interesting! Thank you in advance. BTW, I also get to choose the music, so am determined to put The Wish in there somewhere!

I rarely play Bob Dylan, even though he is often playing in this house! However, just now Mr J was on the treadmill whilst I was chopping vegetables in the kitchen when 'Masters of War' came on, which got me thinking what a brilliant song it is. Is it the best protest song ever written? What are the other contenders?

For those of you who no longer visit our old home and who supported Roy and his family, I just wanted to let you know that Roy has posted over there, thanking everyone for their love and support and sending everyone his best wishes. The post is over in The Circuit.
