SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD     GAMES THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD    
STUART'S PANORAMIC WORLD     MASTERTRONIC - WHAT IF?

The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 37 - Why (Carly Simon)

Listening to this song always brings back nostalgic memories of when I was a wee lad.  There's nothing special about the song that makes it stand out for me - in fact, the video is three and a half minutes of cringworthy footage of Carly prancing along a street (back in the days when music videos could be done on the cheap and still be successful).   Still, I remember listening to this song on the radio when it came out, and I guess that memory just stuck with me.  Released in 1982, it reached number 10 in the UK charts in August of that year....  I was only 5 years old.  Gosh I feel old.

Say Yes To The Dress

Interesting fact...  As I write this, it has been exactly 4432 days, 9 hours, 17 minutes and 55 seconds since our wedding

Enough of that.  Today, we managed to get Michelle's wedding dress out of storage from her Grandparents attic and have brought it to its new permanent home - ours!!  Obviously, the girls got excited and wanted to wear it.  Sophie has already said that she wants to wear it on her Wedding day.
