nocheese | 6716 comments One of the things I like about this group is the total lack of geeky, meaningless lists.
However, as long as it's kept safely corralled within a 'Lists' category and I can easily ignore it - knock yourself out!

Funk (urgh)
Reggae
Country (argh)

message 15: by Isabella (new)

Isabella | 1067 comments When I have so much to do that I need a list to keep track, I always include halfway down, a couple of things I've already done so I can cross them off to encourage myself... Sad, but it works for me.

Martin O' | 2196 comments Shopping lists have become an essential in my advancing years and as failing memory takes it's toll, the problem is when I get to the shop and realise I've left it at home or have forgotten my wallet. Even then I usually come home without one or two items. I've lost count of the amount of times I have had to retrace my steps to a shop or bank to sheepishly ask if they have my card that I left in the machine!


message 17: by theDuke (last edited Jun 08, 2018 04:12AM) (new)

theDuke | 5788 comments List of things I want to do when me vision is balanced again:

1) Lose weight, as I've been sitting on my ass for an eon, waiting patiently to have my vision improved.
2) Re acquaint myself with hiking again...i'm dying to get out and revisit some of my favourite country walks & mountains & get fit again.
3) Take up swimming again - Haven't swum since I was a young man, because of my extreme myopia, because it was a bugger to find my glasses in the baths, when they fell off! I'll be long sighted after the 2nd op is done..hooray! :)
4) Finish all my many projects, currently on hold.
5) Take out a some kind of pension, as I've not ever had one.
6) Visit Scotland again..the land of my ancestors.
7) Start considering the possibility of going independent at last, and find a new home that has more assessable amenities, than where I am currently.
8) Socialise more, with actual human beings!!!!
9) Mibbe find romance at long bladdy last?!
10) Um...….learn to understand how a washing machine works?!

Simple wishes....that roll about upstairs...but with my eyesight improving...I think I may now finally get to do stuff again! :)

Sounds as if 'Life begins", Duke!

Since I had my eyes done, and it sounds like mine were never as bad as yours, it's such a pleasure to see birds properly for the first time. I hadn't realised that glasses, brilliant as they are, don't give you the real detail. The bird feeders in our garden let us get a good view but now, even at a distance, I can easily see the difference between sparrows and dunnocks, just at a glance.

Only downside, I could also see all the imperfections that I missed before (cracks in the ceiling etc) but I've got used to that, enough to slide over them when I want to. ;o)

Enjoy your new self.

Well..they do say life begins in one's forties Isabella! ..I turned 44 last month! I've also noticed the difference without specs...not sure what it is about wearing specs..but some detail is lost, in favour of clarity close up. But I can now detail with my right eye, that I've never seen before...amazing stuff....can't wait to see what my vision will be like when they are balanced again.

A second chance maybe..to finally get to do things that I never had the confidence to do before...I really do need to sort myself out...get a life for myself...and begin preparing for my twilight years, when I get there......hopefully. I guess it's just that a good portion of my life has been wasted because of vision..denting my confidence & these last few years I have pretty much just been coasting along, with not much happening. Perhaps when the 2nd op has been done...I can start to think about my future and get a bit more out life once again...whilst I am still young enough to do 'em! :)

Martin O' | 2196 comments Probably the same people who watch Love Island etc. Unfortunately being bland is not a crime, we can but hope this will change and a reintroduction of the death penalty for repeat offenders.

message 33: by Tim (last edited Jun 09, 2018 03:36PM) (new)

Tim Franklin | 9070 comments At risk of setting myself up, here are the first 15 singles I owned, from 1972 (aged 9) to 74. A bit of background; as there was only a single record player in the house at the time my older brother and I had an 'agreement' that if one of us bought any record, the other wouldn't buy the same one. It made some kind of sense - duplicating on very limited funds would have been silly. As he was more into music than I was at the time, he got more of the better stuff! A few notes will follow. E&OE, as they say.

1. Chelsea Football Club - Blue Is The Colour (1972)
2. Little Jimmy Osmond - Long Haired Lover From Liverpool (1972)
3. Chicory Tip - Good Grief Christina (1973)
4. Alice Cooper - No More Mr Nice Guy (1973)
5. Sweet - Hellraiser (1973)
6. Gary Glitter - I'm The Leader Of The Gang (I Am) (1973)
7. Gary Glitter - I Love You Love Me Love (1973)
8. Sweet - Teenage Rampage (1974)
9. Lulu - The Man Who Sold The World (1974)
10. The Wombles - The Wombling Song (1974)
11. Hudson-Ford - Burn Baby Burn (1974)
12. Glitter Band - Angel Face (1974)
13. Gary Glitter - Remember Me This Way (1974)
14. Gary Glitter - Always Yours (1974)
15. Glitter Band - Just For You (1974)

Notes:
Chelsea was given as a present. I wasn't and never have been a Chelsea fan!
Jimmy Osmond - my brother insists I had this. Whilst I can remember some dreadful records I did have (which aren't on this list chronologically), I don't remember having this at all, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. Yikes!
Wombles - shut up!!!! I liked the one who was more fond of sleeping than working, lol. Brother had a triple album box set of them, so there! And that's definitely true.

A lot of these bit the dust, as it were, when my dear brother decided it would be a good idea to lie down in front of an electric heater on full power, with a pile of singles (his and mine). A lot of them got warped beyond any use at all.

Do yer worst! 😀

Yes..i heard about that! For a woman of 92...she nevers seems to ever be ill or need any medical treatment till now, unlike the Duke of Edinburgh, who has had mild ailments of one sort or another over the last few years..and recently had a hip replacement op at the age of 97!

I've less then one week to go for my pre op appointment for the left eye...so getting there...slowly! :)

Hmmm.....You're a brave man for admitting owning Gary Glitter records Tim. Granted, my dad had a couple of his records too...which have long since gone....I wonder how many folks still own any of Glitter's stuff, today?

Sends a shiver up my back, to think I used to like listening to his stuff as a wee lad...then learn 20 years later what kind of a man he really is....urgghh. *Shudders*

I shall soon be able to join this exclusive club! Op. 1 on July 13 and Op. 2 on July 20, all being well. We can also add Sr. Monica Joan (Call The Midwife).

Tim Franklin | 9070 comments I don't have any of them now, Duke (excepting the two Sweet records which I bought replacement copies of decades later). So far as Glitter goes, what he has done is revolting. But a few of those early A-sides were great; the two drummers and the sounds of the guitars had been big influences on some later musicians.


message 38: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments "Do yer worst!"

so, you've never had any taste then, tim! boom!

1st single owned - the mighty 'lily the pink' - chronology fuzzy after that, genuinely, and not to save any embarrassment.
1st single bought with own money - 'see my baby jive'

didn't own any gary glitter records - I thought he was for the weans - and I was right!...……………………………………………….whit?


message 39: by Derek (new)

Derek W | 1208 comments 1st single owned, on 78rpm disc, Tom Dooley - Lonnie Donegan, released in 1958 when I was 8 years old.

First reggae - 'Dat' by Pluto Shervington (1976)


message 41: by Tech XXIII (last edited Jun 10, 2018 03:01AM) (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments first reggae would be either 'two sevens clash' or Pablo's 'east of the river nile' albums in 1977.

edit, no i'm a liar, I bought 'no woman no cry' on 7" when it came out!


message 42: by Helen The Melon (new)

Helen The Melon | 2900 comments How do you people remember these things? ;-)
I have absolutely no idea what album or single I bought first. I can't even remember all the live acts I've seen. The earliest album I remember having was Captain Beaky & His Band, but I would have been too young to have bought it myself.


message 43: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments I used to be able to tell you where I bought every record, how much it cost and more often than not, the catalogue number as well! but was probably heading for the rubber room, so got a life instead!

first l.p. owned - '40 great hits from the 50s and 60s', on arcade, I think.

first l.p. bought - *lt*n j*hn - 'goodbye yellow brick road' - it was £3.99 from woollies! :)


message 44: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2161 comments ....first l.p. bought - *lt*n j*hn - 'goodbye yellow brick road' - it was £3.99 from woollies! :)

Bet it still gets a regular, if unmentioned on these threads, spin in the Tech household! ;-)


message 45: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments i'm afraid (very afraid), foe, that it does not! the great cull of '77 saw it given away to a mate's auntie! no room for sentiment in a cull! :)


message 46: by Martin (last edited Jun 10, 2018 07:43AM) (new)

Martin O' | 2196 comments Had a few children's records as christmas or birthday presents, Pinky & Perky etc, played on my parents old radiogram which was as big as a small sideboard. First single bought 'I Can See For Miles' The Who, first album 'Bayou Country' Creedence Clearwater. After that pretty much albums mostly very few 45's but here's a few I remember in no particular order
Whiter Shade Of Pale (who else but)
Sabre Dance ~ Love Sculpture (Dave Edmunds and Terry Williams from Man)
Snowblind Friend ~ Steppenwolf
Living In The Past ~ Jethro Tull
I'd Rather Go Blind ~ Chicken Shack
Guilty Secret
Sugar Sugar ~ The Archies. Was in there somewhere but that may possibly down to my older sister.
First Reggae
Bob Marley ~ Lyceum Live
Second Reggae
Little Roy ~ Columbus Ship

I do still like a lot of that glamrock stuff but not GG, as Tech said more for the teeny boppers at that time, but Slade, Mud, Sweet, T Rex, Roy Wood, all very much enjoyed and danced to, great party records
Lonnie Donegan, Rock Island Line/ Battle of New Orleans, probably my MUCH older brothers. Jim was ten years older than me and always bringing home a very eclectic selection of folk, classical, jazz and blues, Terry, I don't recall him being that much into music, My sister Kathleen was Stones, Beatles, Elvis and the like, Mum, Country,Ballad singers 40's/50's, Dad, Andy Stewart and some other Scottish stuff.
What can I say? I'm a nostalgic old fxrt!


message 47: by Tim (last edited Jun 10, 2018 07:42AM) (new)

Tim Franklin | 9070 comments My first album, as has been mentioned before I think, was Reg's 'Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player', followed by a couple of Gary Glitter ones, 'Remember Me This Way' a live semi-soundtrack album if I recall, and 'Always Yours', a Music For Pleasure branded hits collection. I then did a left turn and bought the soundtrack album for 'The World At War' (which series still is shown on some channel or other), then back for another compilation 'The Beatles: Rock 'N' Roll Music' (found in the racks of a DIY/warehouse type place!) and 'Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'. That's the story up to circa 1976.
