You saw the above photo in a recent post, but it's worth showing again because of a rather interesting fact. See that bottle of COCA COLA on the mantlepiece? It ain't! A bottle of COKE that is. In actual fact it's a radio (which I still have today), bought in my local CO-OP store back in the early '80s. Looking at it reminds me of an event which took place in the bedsit room above the one in the photo, back in early '85, so in the absence of anything better to write about, I may as well share it with you now.
Needless to say, nowadays if anyone asks to borrow anything, my answer is a resounding "Feck off!"
