Next performance of "The Rivals" is tomorrow at Turton Tower, Bolton at 2pm.

What a horrible colour of hair on the young lady`s head above the right hand edge of the folding table.

dirty harry, you won`t goad me into saying anything that I`ll regret.
Today`s outside performances of " Merry Wives of Windsor" at Turton Tower look like being washed out.

Mick, came across your video of the u-boat on the canal at Wigan. This led me to `The English Civil War`, a video by Jeffery Patrick Webb.
This is on website :-

It`s an excellent video showing the Re-enactment by the Sealed Knot Society in Wigan on Saturday 26th May`12.

The girl with the coloured hair ,has a beautiful face.
Wish mine was there to be coloured, and I bet you lot do.

The lady with blue hair is actually a final year medical student at Manchester university. Just because someone wants to have blue hair does not denote the 'class' of that particular person. Mick you are so single minded it is unbelievable.

Ron, are you saying you are bald and us too?
I`m not bald, just thinning a bit on top!

Mick and what is up with council estates? are you saying that daughters of stuck up idiots like you who think you are better than everyone else never get pregnant,well it seems your mother did and brought a foollike you into this world, oh the shame of it!!

Mick ,that is very cruel and I think a little bit out of order?

Comment by: michael davies australia on 9th July 2012 at 06:27

yes the girl in question looks quite nice.when I lived in wigan in the 40s/50sand 60s the older people were always putting other people down,etc they seened to have forgotten the fathers and sons of Wigan had just fort ww2 we were all working class.glad to say we dont have any of that rubbish in Australia.remember my mother saying only common people went to the EMpress dance hall she must have meant me and my mates.she was a two bob snob.

the girls hair colour does not make her anything to rail on about,its her choice ,no need to comment at all.
