Saturday [12 to 17]

(1730) There’s some sort of cup final on, I believe, this side of the pond … probably won by City. Shall check after this. (2211)

17.  How's your botulism level just now?

16.  Our sky at our 1739

… been a lovely sunny day:

15.  Again I’m not buying in for now, personally

14.  AKH and Green Shield stamps

“As I remember it, the whole thing eventually became rather tedious because of offers such as "quad stamps" at filling stations. We'd end up with reams of the things every time we filled up with petrol, then we had to stick them into little books like the one I saw. Once we'd filled enough books we'd go to the Green Shield store in Derby to exchange them for something we didn't really want.”

13.  Scores

  1. I was quite pleased with the result of the Manchester derby thingy. We need someone else to join the glorious Villa in competing with the top sides. Things could get a bit fruity over the next couple of seasons. Forget the money and its sources, be it oil, business or pornography ( Wet Spam), its entertainment. I am entertained.

  4. Don't knock Green Shield Stamps - when they were all the vogue I worked in a petrol station often offering quad stamps, if the customer didn't ask for them they were mine. You'd be amazed the amount of books I filled, didn't need to collect useless things, the full books could be sold for cash, I considered it a bonus scheme.

  7. During my military career, I spent a posting on a tank transporter unit in the UK. The tractors were the mighty Antars which had two 100 Gallons tanks. It was great fun, when in convoy, filling up at petrol stations which offered double green shield stamps for purchases of four gallons of more. The books of stamps were supposed to be given to the unit for welfare purposes, but there were quite a few married crew members with new furniture or tvs.
