An interesting* suggestion, but no.

I''ve just tested them with a packet of pasta.

Fusilli, in case you're wondering.


* - Technically that should disqualify your post, but I'll let it pass.
I'm going out on a limb here but this thread was made for you.

No no no. Fish is heavier than pasta.....that's a well know fact.

Who wants to talk about wallpaper?
When I was in the sixth form we were taken on a tour of the Sanderson wallpaper factory in Greenford as part of the school's career development programme. Long demolished, Westway Cross shopping centre was built on the site and I was there today buying dog biscuits in Pet Smart. Coincidence or what? Surprisingly, I never considered a career in wallpaper. Was I wrong?

Far from boring. I wonder if anyone else on the same trip ever considered a roll in wallpaper?

Yes.
A career in Wallpaper is something you could get wrapped up in.

You can't be that old, WOB, since the original Sandersons factory was in Chiswick.

One of their earliest buildings still survives, the listed Voysey House (1902):

(Apologies if the use of a photo crosses the line from "boring" to "mildly interesting".)

Ealing Bee's post are just like searching google. What is the point?

It's like the GPG's own sub-standard Siri.

The top rated attraction in Brentford on Tripadvisor is the musical museum, the most recent review for which describes it as magical musical place. Griffin park is apparently the 8th top rated attraction (still) in Brentford. Lionel road does not have a rating

Just seen that Bernard Cribbins is 93 today. 93!! Also, as I found out to Mrs LDB's considerable disappointment, I still know all the words to Hole in the Ground.
That is a great song. I still own a 45 with that on the B side and the A side is Right Said Fred. It was bought for me in the newsagents roughly opposite where Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre is now.
