The Imperial War Museum reopens this weekend 19/20th. Best museum in London.

Harry Potter at Warner Bros Studio Tour kept them them grandchildren happy for a good few hours

I took the grandchildren to Diggerworld today and they thought it was great .Grandad also enjoyed playing with some of the bigboys toys.Seven hours and they still wanted more.

Recommended and very reasonable prices and no extras to pay.(you can also use Tesco Vouchers that make it even cheaper Bob M

Just had a celebration dinner at the Duke of York (Martin Chivers old pub I think - Spurs)  on the Barnet Road from Potters bar. I must say it was an excellent meal with good atmosphere and service. Do visit if you get a chance Duke of York, Barnet, Hertfordshire, EN5 4SG – The Good Pub Guide


Went to see Chas & Dave, back together again now, with a group of friends at Wyllyotts Theatre Potters Bar. It was very lively and a good sing along. If you get the chance to see them again. Chop

Les Miserables  Just been to see Les Miserables ,the film, if you like the stage show you will love this film. All the paper reviews got it right. 
It sounds strange but the audience clapped at the end.
 cheers Dave

Out and about London
Fancy a coffee or lunch?
Why not pop into one of Lobs approved golfing venues, free parking, pleasant atmosphere, some great views, a warm welcome, good service and above all, reasonable prices.  Smart casual wear though (no jeans/hats ). Mention Lexpo Golf Society if need be. Look on the web for a Golf Club:-  North Middlesex (Barnet/Whetstone)  Whitewebbs (a Toby) or Trent Park (Enfield), Mitcham (Common),  Epsom( Downs), Huntswood (Beaconsfield) or Darenth Valley (Shoreham).  In fact why not pop into a golf club near where you are and give it a try, they don’t bite and would appreciate your custom.

London Museum 
London Wall Moorgate
Took the grandchildren, visiting us from the US, there. The complete history of London, they loved it, well worth a visit. Its free and we had lunch afterwards at Pizza Express on the Barbican level walkway.  Here you can sit and look out at what was once Wood St International Telephone Exchange. Chop

Ford Focus

The key fob for my Ford focus recently gave up the ghost .I had it repaired at Crescent Radio (21c Green Lanes N13). tele 020 8888 3206 / 020 889 7593 The cost was only £16.50, a fraction the cost of a new one from Fords. They do mail order or while you wait .
ps Just to let you know they repair most car makes but the price varies according to model Bob M


  I have just used a B.T. service called BT Home It Call To sort out several viruses that had invaded my computer.It isn't cheap ,but they sorted out all my problems by taking over remotely .Their telephone No. is 08000321118.This service may be of use other noncompetent users like myself.

I had a Legends tour of the Emirates today with Jo. Brilliant!!!! Dave

We went to this show, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, on New Years Day. Well worth a seeing - a great show and music. Not suitable for younger children due to the colourful language though.  John

Well worth a visit for a  good cheap beer in Streatham. Jim

Toby Carvery Park Place Commonside West Mitcham.
Value for money with an excellent choice of good carvery food. Good staff, easy parking and a restaurant of character.  Highly recommended  Lobs Golf

 Royal Air Force Museum Grahame Park Way Hendon
Well worth a visit - just spent half a day there with the Grandchildren  free parking and entrance lots for them to do and not crowded. You can tell them about what you did during the war stories and bore them to death. 

 Tesco's Clacton on Sea
You may meet up with Ron, Rose, Pat or Jane and miss out on the shopping experience chatting - great - Jane

A Greek restaurant out near the BT Tower affordable, good food/choice and a nice ambience. Mention Lexpo to Peter the proprietor and he’ll look after you well. www.the4lanterns.com    - Lobs

As a BT person/pensioner you can join Costco wholesale for a small fee. You need your pension number and a bill/statement before getting a photo ID card and you are restricted to certain times.
Some savings to be made but you need to know your cost/prices including & excluding VAT . I have some 200 toilet rolls and 24 bottles of bleach at home together with 6 cases of wine (most drunk now) saved £30. John

 Trent Park Golf Enfield
Excellent venue and food - Lobs Golf

 Tottenham Hotspur     
Well worth a visit before they move to xxxxx  - interesting but the cleaner shows you around - photos to follow Jim

The King's Speech (Film)
A must see -great - John, Eamon  & Brian

 Whitewebbs Golf  Enfield  and Toby
A pleasant tree lined course, plenty of open space and paths for those country   walks and have a great meal at the Toby Carvery on Whitewebbs Road. Lobs Golf
