I miss getting my milk off the doorstep, I miss the glass bottles and putting them back on the doorstep for the milkman.. I miss having to shake them to mix the cream back in and I even miss the blue tits (birds) who would do this!
Bus Conductors. Until the 1970s & early 1980s, conductors, or clippies, were a common feature of many local bus services. Two-person crews were needed because until the 1960s, all double deck vehicles were built with front-mounted engines & a "half-cab" design. This layout totally separated the driver from the passenger saloons. The conductor communicated with the driver using a series of bell codes, such as two bells to start (the well-known "ding-ding").
Snowball - Go retro this Christmas with this classic cocktail, the Snowball, which was popular in the 60s and 70s. Just mix advocaat, 7-Up and a dash of lime cordial, whisk and serve in a tall glass with a cherry on a cocktail stick. For a stronger drink try a shot of vodka for a Russian Snowball.
