Lol. I think we are agreeing that the old is the old and the new is the new. Where we possibly disagree is about our ability to use that awareness. Maybe that's a different discussion.

Anyone born from the 1950s onwards has grown up with 'rock & roll'. I still jump around at a Stiff Little Fingers gig. If that means I'm impersonating a teenager, so be it. BTW there are a lot of teenagers jumping around at Fingers gigs (and other punk gigs), and judging by their enthusiasm, and that they know and sing all the words, I don't think it's because they've been dragged there against their will by old fogeys.

I wouldn't take your posts personally, DQ. I think the value in your posts comes from their detachment from the personal. I respect that clarity of thinking.

From personal experience I think the attitude of the police has a lot to do with a person's age, as well as the colour of their skin. In my younger days I used to get stopped for no reason on suspicion of being in possesion of drugs and even burglary. Roll the clock on nearly forty years and things were a bit different. I was out for a 50th birthday bash in Bath with the lads and things got a bit loud and rowdy. We were thrown out of a number of pubs and put on pub watch so no one would let us in. The police were called but took it in good humour. They escorted us to the station to get the next train back to Cardiff. :lol: :guiness;

It was a year Wales won the Grand Slam. Rugby is very popular in Bath and we were rubbing it in. :lol:

We have a 60th birthday racing bash on Wednesday at a different location as it is the jump season. Look out Hereford. :guiness; :lol:

Be careful there’s no shortage of “hooligans” in Hereford
