We have lived happily for nearly forty years almost next door to the 'executive pastiche' and got to know the nice old lady who lived there for many years - she has now died . Our theory has always been that it was originally built as a country retreat by a retired Peckham gangster. As such , we fee...

I'd say 'Google it, Rod' if I didn't think you knew perfectly well already and were just being mischievous.

This came up on another local forum. It was stated pretty authoritatively that election methods for local authorities could be changed only by Parliament.
I understand the need for online security. But I've never quite understood the mania for online privacy. I'm quite prepared to sacrifice a bit of privacy for the sake of the wonderful ads I get. Cheap funerals, hearing aids, single women over 50 in Lewisham... they've got me to a T!
I regularly travel along Dartmouth Road on foot, by bus and by car, and I think in all three modes it's a lot more pleasant, and, in the cases of bus and car, a lot quicker than it was.
We had a prolonged debate on this forum several years ago about the use of pseudonyms. I thought the default position for a local forum should be that posters should use their real names, but the consensus was very much in favour of anonymity. I find that using my own name has the advantage of makin...
I'm finding this constant and repetitive slagging off of Chris Beach pointless and distasteful; it smacks of an online lynch mob. I'm not in a position to defend him and indeed wouldn't particularly want to. But what's the point of going on and on about his alleged misdeeds? What I don't suppose mos...
In my view, JGD's screed about narcissism adds nothing to this discussion. Indeed, I don't think one should speculate about named individuals' possible psychopathology on this sort of forum.
Major traffic problems, I'm told. Buses diverted along Dartmouth Road, congestion on Thorpewood Avenue. Emergency vehicles seen at top of Kirkdale earlier this morning.
Or as the late, great Sir Walter Scott wrote in Marmion O what a tangled web we weave When first we venture to deceive Did you not read it when it first came out? Yes, of course. And I recall it said 'practise to deceive' not 'venture to deceive.' But perhaps it was changed in later editions.
Oh no. Does everything have to keep getting get more and more complicated? Can someone please offer some Clear Moral Guidance for us simple folk who want to have a forum for Forest Hill (and one for Sydenham) but don't know which one we ought to be using?
Penge and Sydenham should be seen as a single area. Few people know where the boundary lies. The same could be said about Forest Hill and Sydenham, which are at least in the same borough. But then I would say that, wouldn't I, living, as I suspect I do, at the opposite end of SE26 to 'John H'?
