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.

Pointless Post

Its a quiet night, so I thought I'd do some maths.

Sophie and Kayleigh are exactly 2298 days old today.
 Kieran is exactly 3939 days old today.
 I am exactly 14187 days old.

When I was the girls age (as they are now at this very minute), the date was Friday 29th April 1983. When I was Kieran's age, the date was Monday 26th October 1987 (the time of the great storm of 87).

Yep, some useless information for a Monday evening. Nothing like a bit of maths to make me feel older than I already do.

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 38 - A Good Heart (Feargal Sharkey)

Well, it's been a few weeks since my last "Songs That Remind Me Of My Childhood", so for this one I have decided to pick Feargal Sharkey's "A Good Heart" which coincidently became number one in the UK charts exactly 30 years ago this week.  Yep, November 1985 saw him get his one and only UK number one, and what a great song it is too.

It's another song that reminds me of family walks along the seafront at Southend.  Many of the 'watering holes' between Leigh-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea would play this whilst I drank my pint of orange squash and spending many 10p's on the arcade machines.  Happy days.
