Someone has been round with a magic wand, making St Helens streets narrower than they were when I lived there. Church Street doesn't even look much wider than an entry

Ps..i've gone PRO as Flickr call it which means nothing ,only a money scam.

Thousands of people will be leaving and millions of pictures will disappear.  

£5.99 a month...for now.

That is where I put mine and then post them on here.

Example. Benidorm last week watching a brilliant band a tribute to the Beatles.

Sorry the photo is not as good as it could be.

Bye bye Home and bargains around town stores.Hello Home and Bargains to Westpoint.

Yet another move out of towns for their current shops.More empty units. Knock all these empty units into 1 ready for our LIBRARY?

I personaaly agree.

You can order books via any local library,video and dvds not needed now,ancestry can be located anywhere,Sadly i still believe in BOOKS not reading via kindle etc.Some people even on this site,believe it or not,are couch shoppers,communicators etc!So their descendants will morph into no leg,no voice beings as they fail to make use of their senses etc.

Green spaces will disappear as they go online for their exercise(fingers only).mmmm what a future?

We at Sutton Nash junior school used to use Sutton library to do our homework,do research and learn how to look things up but now you just ask Google. 

Hey,we had some giggles in there only when a certain woman was on,she was very strict and a proper miserable with a face like a slapped arse....hey i hope it's no one's family member on here   :sofa_bricks:

 

 

Today...

 

 

This shop below was in the Star i think when it used to be a newsagents and the owner fought the thief off with a brush,i'm sure.

I wrongly thought that  you meant that you had been doing the testing.

It will even have a photocopier and fax.Mmm bet its got  foto setup so Robbob can sort his Brownie camera out.Even Dave will be happy cos ive heard this store will stock CARBON PAPER for Dave's typewriter. 

SOME BUSINESSES ARE USING FAX COS IT CANT BE HACKED!
