    No! Thank you Reg, well worth every penny for what this site brings us in my opinion. Not only do we have the memory's of are youth days when playing great fruit machines but also for me the added bonus of the retro area and some of the memory's that are coming out of there ATM when i was a kid are priceless. So ya thank you Reg Not forgetting as always Wizard and layout artists to many to name but you know who you are. THANK YOU.

    What have these two items got in common? The TV and the wire coat hanger. Using the coat hanger as an aerial and having to move the thing every time you turn the tv over, And the tv had that twisty knob to turn the channel over so you wasn't sure if you was on the right channel anyway🤣 Plus an added bonus how to use one on your car with your two knob stereo.

    Caps for guns It was always cowboys and indians when growing up but as a cowboy you had to have caps in your gun. Also rubbing a stone on them so they would make them go bang. Plus always remember going Rhyl in north wales as this was the place for us stoke lot back in the 70s - early 80's and the seaside shops used to sell keyring cap guns.

    Give Us A Clue. Give Us a Clue was a British televised game show version of charades which was broadcast on ITV from 1979 to 1992. The original host was Michael Aspel from 1979 to 1984, followed by Michael Parkinson from 1984 to 1992. The show featured two teams, one captained by Lionel Blair and the other by Una Stubbs Now i often find myself playing this with other drivers who peep there horn and they start waving there arms in the car.
