Re: Sydenham has highest Covid deaths in Lewisham!

I haven't really researched this, but I believe that the large Castlebar home on Sydenham Hill is in Sydenham ward, that there is another home by Cobb's Corner and yet another towards the bottom end of Sydenham Road, just past Kwikfit on the left as you go down the hill. On the other hand I can't im...

Sorry but the threat from coronavirus has taken over from climate change.
The planet can look after itself hence inflicted this virus upon us which I predicted a year ago

Re: Sydenham has highest Covid deaths in Lewisham!

I would put some money on it being related to the number of care homes in the area.

Dogs during lockdown

A lot of dog owners seem to be ignoring the advice to keep their dogs on leads in parks.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It will be interesting to see whether Chris's decision means that there will now be more traffic on this forum. Or has the iron now entered too deep into everybody's soul for there to be any reconciliation between the Chrisites and the Stuartites? Don't know, but the mush of moral equivalence is qu...

What in my writings has or have led you te refer to "her posts" ?
I think it is courteous to give people the benefit of the doubt if they choose to keep their first names secret. (Yes, I know Robin is a girl's name in the USA. I'm all man however and not ashamed to admit it.)

Re: Power Issues at Bell Green Retail Park

Am I the only one getting fed up with JGD hijacking threads for the purposes of her ongoing vendetta with Chris Beach? So boring and deters other people from contributing to the discussion. Could her posts not be moved to a separate thread? 'More reasons why Chris Beach is an absolute rotter' might ...

Can't read quoted messages

I find I can't read quoted messages in this forum using the Google Chrome browser in my desktop - the text is concealed by a dense array of thick black inverted commas. Seems OK on IE (which I also have on my desktop) and on my phone (Android); on the latter, the quoted text appears against a backgr...

Re: CBRE say Bromley is best borough for wellbeing

Hall Lane Robin? I thought Hall Drive was the place for Sydenham's hoi polloi. Stuart You're right of course, Stuart. Sorry. My excuse is that it's a street I dream of rather than visit, and names often get a bit mixed up in dreams. But I thought its USP was that it was somewhere where you could av...

I've lived in Sydenham (Lewisham) for nearly forty years, and have never once had this feeling. Sorry to hear you have, Parker. Where exactly were you living at the time?

Sorry, I lapsed into lazy stereotyping. I accept that it's quite possible to be posh without being particularly unpleasant.
