  1. Willie you could choose cremation and then burial of yer ashes.
  2. It would be more sensible and logical to make a donation but grief is neither of these, is it ?
  3. Try not to be harsh, people show their grief in many ways. A young man nearby died fairly recently and the locals showed their sorrow by putting flowers, football strips etc in his garden. I met another local who confessed she never knew him but was sad that a young man had died and that was why she was placing flowers there.
  4. Rolo, I think you are talking about Tom McKendrick who trained in the yard but then went onto become an artist of some renown. Google can give you more info.
  5. It was sold as American cream soda. Maybe they thought that would encourage sales as post 2nd world war there seemed to be a belief in all things American being special, superior and very modern and attractive. Remember most of Britain was still living in extremely adverse circumstances re rations etc until the middle 50`s and the Americans seemed glamorous etc.
  6. O yes,nwe. Brings back memories. Long, hot summers and yer mammy calling you in for a cool drink. MMMmmm, delish. Remember picnics, wi yur pieces wrapped in bread wrapping paper, creamola foam drinks n rhubarb wi sugar in a newspaper cone. Jooblys * and maybe just maybe,cornish ice cream n wafers or a rectangular cone. * I know they were really Jubilees.
