Never heard that one.She was also carried to her coronation because of her gout.
Also it's a triangle :wink:


Led to believe originally a diamond, same principle

Did you know about the career change of Jonathan De Falco a one time pro footballer, who fancied something a little different.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_De_Falco


Also known as the ' Buggered Sprout ' who once audition for the remake of 'Shaft'.

Often touted as the ' Buttocks from Brussels' which pissed Jean-Claude Van Damme of immensely.
Given the latter is termed ' The muscles from Brussels' in certain quarters.....

Van Damme is reputed to have said I'll gladly give him a Karate chop. To which the 'Buggered Sprout' supposedly whispered " I'd prefer a loin chop"..................


Investigated him for murder once, a pillow biter for sure.

Probably wouldn't know that, when I saw young boxers receiving medals off the great Dick McTaggart at the Commonwealth games.
I thought those boxers think its just some old bloke in a blazer, not knowing the greatness of the man.

Dick McTaggart in British boxing terms, thats Royalty of the highest order.

Did you know that when Bill Nicholson was trying to find a player to replace Danny Blanchflower his first choice was Mike Bailey then at Charlton.
He changed his mind and was swayed by Alan Mullery being versatile, thought about playing him right back.

What might have been aye, within a short period of time Spurs lost Blanchflower, McKay to a broken leg and John White, killed by lightening.
Wolves on the other hand gained an inspirational captain.

Come on KK. There's lots of things I know. How do you know what you know?

Btw, he came out of retirement to play for them. I was at secondary school at the time. Some things you remember, most of 'em you forget. Sometimes it's unfortunate and often it isn't.

Actually, now I've thought about it, there was also summat about this in the papers when Finney died which jogged the memory.

In 1966 Franz Beckenbauer signed a pre contract agreement with Inter Milan. Italy lost to N.Korea in the World Cup and the Italian federation banned foreign players.

Bayerns continued success is all down to Pak Doo-ik.

Did you know when you play cards, What Aces high represents.

It harks back to the French revolution to say that the common man has reached the stage where he/she is higher than any King or Queen.

10 October 1964. The opening ceremony of the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, took place.

There was this new thing in the sky called a satellite and it beamed live television to England, in many ways the first breakfast television. Good morning Tokyo.

Who won Gold?
