  • A brief intro...
    Not sure what to put here -  A 100 Club regular for many years, although I don't get down there as much as I used to (Life gets in the way don't it?) My 'Golden Years' were the 90's - Winsford, Wilton, The 100 Club, Albrighton, The Ritz Manchester (Boxing night was fantastic!), along with the few various Soul nights that were dotted about - A time when we all went to the same places / and there was respect between promoters i'm still 'doing it' as much as I can, it's not the same as it was for me, but I still make the most of when I do go out! The best scene / the best people! Cheers, Len

  1. The 'leader of our house' is also a cat, and we also didn't want to use a Cattery (Ellie the cat told us not to in no uncertain terms!) Anyway, we disobeyed her and put her in the Cattery for over two weeks. Although the whole family were racked with guilt, we liked the fact our cat was safe and well looked after. This particular Cattery puts pictures of their residents up on Face Book, so their guardians can see them when they are on holiday. I hope you get some sort of justice ref the stolen goods, but more so, I hope you both can somehow put it to the back of your minds and focus on better things All the best, Len
  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GLENN! All the best, Len
  3. Sorry to hear this, it must leave you both feeling horrible after trusting someone. It's bad enough being burgled by someone you don't know - I was burgled some years back, a week before I got married (the first time) They actually stole our wedding rings, and left the empty ring boxes neatly on our pillows (In hindsight, I should have taken that as an omen!) That took years to get over, people don't realize how it makes you feel - I was suspicious of the lads that used to hang around in our street, along with everyone who walked past, and dreaded opening the door every time we returned home after a night out. Yours is of course alleged ref your sitter as there is no proof, so unfortunately there's nothing you can do - Just try to take some comfort that 'what goes around comes around', and whoever did this will pay somewhere down the line. How they live with themselves I do not know. Maybe put a few posters up around where you live listing the stolen items, please ring if you have been offered these, or post them through our letterbox at this address. You never know, if it was the sitter, she may do this if she thinks you suspect her (If she did it of course) All the best, Len
  4. I can't understand anyone selling them full stop. An event such as The 100 Club 40th Anniversary is something that will never be repeated (Hence the prices I suppose) Nina and I would get one each when we went to the anniversary's, so sometimes we would give one away to friends - No regrets as they went to good homes. Len
  5. Just listening to the show. It's really moving, and a lovely tribute - Thanks. My heart goes out to everyone who knew John - His family should be very proud. Len.
  6. I don't think there's a collection in the land without a record sleeve with 'Soul Bowl' stated on it. I fondly remember going through soul packs, putting them in my different stacks, and even up to today I still re-visit records I filed that now sound brilliant, which back then I 'shelved' and forgot about. RIP John Anderson. Len.
  7. I met Sean on The 100 Club dance floor - My first time there. I was 'ok', but knew I was honored to be there (if that makes sense) Sean must have sensed something because he picked me up and span me around whilst giving me a massive kiss on the lips! How weird you might say - But it made me feel welcome. Like I said, the music is the best, as is the team that puts it all together for us, along with such an iconic venue. But in addition to that are the many attendees who help make that 'magic' happen - A perfect storm Nostalgia is a strange yet pleasant thing - I can't image how Ady must feel looking back over 40 years of The 100 Club (Let alone his 25 years of running The Cleethorpe's weekender) Happy memories indeed. He is also looking forward for future generations which must also be applauded. Len
  8. A great article, that sums it all up perfectly. I wasn’t going to comment as too much to say, but I just stopped welding and walked back in to my office muttering to myself that I have to write something. So many people are truly grateful for their individual memories of The 100 Club - The music, the faces, friends, husbands, wives, and even children! At our wedding I remember Ady smiling and saying to Nina’s mum……”It’s my fault”….. I’ll keep it short as I’m sure many will want to add their comments. I must just mention the legend that is Sean Adams (100 Club member Number 1) He was one of many attendees who added so much to the ‘magic’ that is The 100 Club. Thank you! Len ‘n’ Nina.
  9. Yes deep condolences Dave. My Dad passed away 4 years ago, and I have mentioned him a few times in my posts on here recently. Up until then, I hadn't really spoken about the subject, and when I did mention to various people about my loss, they shared their stories. I don't think you ever completely get over losing your parents, but learn to live with it, and cherish those fond memories. The day of my Dad's funeral was the proudest day of my life - All these people I remembered from my childhood turned up. I cried like a baby from start to finish, well until because it was such a hot day and the room was packed a woman fainted - Queue my older sister......."That'll be the other woman"...... For a while I've been thinking whether it would be an idea to start a thread on here for people to share their stories / memories of their parents - I think it would be nice. All the best, Len
  10. Hi Steve, There's an old thread - I think some names are still missing! (This is ref the DJ dance competition) All the best, Len
  11. When I took my Son to The Download Festival, between the bands on the screens were items about 'staying Green' / take your tents home etc - You should have seen the absolute carnage left on the Monday morning! 'Suffice to say' I had all our rubbish in a bin bag, and neatly packed our tent away Len
  12. It's the same when you go to the cinema - I took my Son the other day; I insisted on taking our empty cups etc out with us to place in the many bins provided, and he turned to me and said......."Just leave it Dad, they clear it up, everyone else does"......I looked around and he was right, everyone had just left their rubbish on the floor. Suffice to say I still insisted on taking our rubbish to the bins! Len
  13. I don't know what the answer is. But it certainly shouldn't be anyone else's responsibility except for those with the rubbish in the first place! My dad was a dustman - A proper one that lifted metal bins himself I remember him coming home and moaning in exasperation after not only emptying the bins of a couple of houses, but also completely clearing up the strewed out rubbish (and dog's mess) in their alley's and around their yards the week prior, only to return that week to exactly the same mess! I never drop litter as I have been bought up not to, when I see others drop it I just wonder why. Len
