"I didn't catch your name"

"That's because I didn't throw it"

"It's Heather, Heather Argyle"

Wish I had a clue how to post pictures as I've just grabbed some caps from the DVD. Most amusing.

Correct they did :!: But as we don't have 24/7 coverage of all topics and threads it can be a bit of a job keeping abreast of every topic on a daily basis

No worries Gus,
The RED letters are used to draw attention to the subject and not for chastisment purposes 8) hope that clears this up. 8)

Squires was a quite 'well to do' gay bar. I used to work up the road. Very popular with the office crowd at lunchtime. Total poofetry in the evening.

As for the person that mentioned 'Maxwell Plums', it has long been demolished. Was a haunt of one of Colin Barr's first nights. As for 'The Warehouse' and 'The Mardi-Gras' with the dance floor like a huge lift.... Once you got on, you couldn't get off. Pretty poor when the DJ was sh*t and you had to keep dancing. And of course the confetti cannon at the end of the night.

Oh dearie me. I'm so old, I'm just waiting for death......
