Bubble Gum Cards
Funnily enough, Graham Rawle was talking about his collection of bubble gum cards the other day at the MMU and today I found some in Northwich market. See "Brain Destroyer" example here. A bout 30 of the "Outer Limits" from the 60's, two "You'll Die Laughing" cards and one N.E.M.S. ABC "Beatles" card. Sadly I missed Graham's talk but Hazel bought home the video so I could watch it . Hazel also got Graham to sign his latest exceelent book "Woman's World" and he wrote a nice dedication inside which cheered me up no end. Still have a rotten cold but it's not as bad as it was last week.
Also bought a scart to scart lead to try and copy a NFCS? american video tape to VHS. I still keep getting lots of weird interference so gave up in the end.
Wilfred seems to be settling in but we don't see much of him. The water bottle leaked so I bought another and that seems to leak even more! Not much luck with gadgets today.
Have been copying "The Shadow" an old Columbia serial from the 40's onto DVD. Sadly its only episodes 7 - 15 but as they all seem to begin and end the same one can imagine the first six episodes are very similar. The fight scenes and stunts are very funny as the actors or stunt men are pathetic and hit thin air on regular basis!
