    I don't know what it is like over there but over here on a Saturday night all you have is endless talent shows or 'reality' rubbish on TV.

    So I am using the Christmas present Mrs Blazer bought me and have dusted off all the old Vinyl from the loft. So far we have given needle time to Buddy Holly, Glen Campbell and The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Lined up next we have some Sweet and Demis Roussos. If I keep on drinking enough wine I may even allow Mrs B to put some of her Donny Osmond on! There were records in the box I had forgotten and so it will be good to give them an airing as well. One or two have autographed sleeves!

    Just found an original Little Richard at the bottom of the box. recorded in 1958 which makes it 1 year younger than me. That is now on the turntable. Best rock and roller ever in my opinion.

    My mom had this Leonard Skynard vinyl and and Gordon Lightfoot....she would listen to them over and over, but they were both scratched so they would get stuck on the same phrases. Many of my childhood memories have those phrases repeating in the background...lol

    Many years ago when TV was far more censored than it is now there was a sitcom set in a prison called 'porridge'. To try and get the down to earth type of language that prisoners would use without actually swearing the scriptwriters created a set of made up swearwords. Naff was one of them and it caught on in general conversation. It is used as a substitute for the 'F' word so things can be Naff or naffing, a person could be described as a naffer or and being naffing stupid etc.:lol:

    It also gets used as a sub word for something useless. So if something is described as 'naff' it means that it is of poor quality or low value.
