I just received The Comic Strip complete DVD set from Amazon - Five Go Mad in Dorset was the first one on, and I just watched Five Go Mad on Mescalin. Excellent! Hasn't dated at all.

Here's a challenge for you all.....I have very fond memories of a book I read as a child and I would like to get it and have a look at it again...but I can't recall the title.

It was about a family who lived out in isolated house in the woods, and I think there were two girls...not at all sure about that.....and once a year, the father went into town for supplies and was away for days and the eldest girl got to go one year...

It sounds like The Little House In The Woods, but i seem to recall reading this online and it not being the right one. If anyone has any clues, I would love to follow them up.....I recently tracked down another of my favourite childhood books....written in Afrikaans. It amazes me, looking at it,, that I was able to read it at such a young age.

The line I remember most clearly from these classics was the suave, sophisticated guy from Crossroads (Married to Meg Richardson at one time, I think) telling the kids "I'm a raving homosexual"! :howl:

Yup, Dolls great site. I LOVE books. My favourite way to spend time in Glasgow is to go to their giant Borders bookshop for the day......with actual money or gift vouchers to BUY books! I always used to ask for book vouchers for my xmas from rellies so that I could treat myself to this pleasure.

Aren't Gollies making a comeback? They're hugely popular in The NetherRegions.

and the Children of Mistletoe Farm..that was another goodie!

wasnt that about cousins - one branch being from the city, but the dad yearns for the farm life again, and he moves his townie wife and children to the farm next door to his brother..

Loved the Famous Five books and loved the Miseltoe Farm books - there were two, weren't there? I read them again about a year ago and loved them, especially as how they ripped the piss out of Melisande. They are very parochial and dated now, but they do have an innocent magic about them.

Those Famous Five book covers were the ones I remember too. I would love to see them again and see how big or small the font is. They felt like 'proper' books to me then, but I'm sure I'd get through them in two minutes now.

And I was in love with Julian! :oops:

Not being funny but it was the language in the book......*Jolly Jumpers what* ?! PMSL but I still loved em. :oops:


yes i read them as a kid.
it soon became apparent to me that i would/could never have a childhood like that.
it pissed me off a bit but read them anyway.

i soon switched to biggles. chocks away ginger!

My boyfriend had never heard of him and when I told him that was one of my fav childhood books (along with the ladybird books) he couldn't stop laughing. We googled it and he (Pinkwhistle) does sound a bit ''wrong'' now :D :D :D Especially the one titled 'Mr Pinkwhistle interferes' !!

But yeh Mr Pinkwhistle ROCKS! :jig:
