Won't have far to go to imperial again. 
Trip to UK a couple of years ago showed a pig's breakfast of metric and imperial systems and some of the dumbest excuses why. :smiley-laughing:

I've only read about this /s/d thing in books. I didn't realise until now that there are still people around who actually USED them. And even more surprisingly they remember using them too  :goggleeyes:

 :P :D

I realise that this is in jest and is in the happy thread , ,  ,

but I am wondering if it would surprise peeps to know that there are some on the forum* that remember being carried to their holiday destinations by post-grouping companies ! Yep! in my case I was carried by LNER. Mind you,,, I was too young to realise the distinction betwix LNER and LMS (at the time) and it was not until a few years later, after BR , that I became a fully acredited spotter :)

* and I know that I am not the oldest member present on the forum !

No, for the birds, it is a peck.

Anyway I thought that "dyne" was the posh opposite to "up"

I still remember the TV jingles to promote decimal currency :

"Use your old coppers in sixpenny lots, give more get change, do what you've always done, Use your old coppers in sixpenny lots, give more get change, do what you've always done, ad nauseum".

Best regards,


Joe

When they phased out the "sixpence" it was the same day they phased out the 1/2 penny.    Some evil genius at a Booking Office in London that serves destinations Eastwards decided that it would be a good laugh to retain all sixpenny pieces and 1/2 pences so as on the final evening they would give them out in change...  I was only obeying orders.   The same applied on the last day of validity of 1 notes....   
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

As I have mentioned once or twice on the forum, I have decided to retire fully at the end of the year. I have just been talking to the H.R. Manager about the requirement for over 65's to be certified by a Doctor as being fit to work. He agreed that in my case it would not be necessary to renew my certificate of fitness  :thumbsup:. (I did not fancy paying 40 to be allowed to work a few days  :no:). He has also agreed that, due to having holidays still to take, I now have just ten shifts to work before I retire.   :claphappy:. Wonder what I will do with all my spare time?  (Apart from cooking/cleaning/gardening) ???.
