old street games

Did you play any of these game’s when you were younger, i played them on the street’s, with both boy’s and girl’s taking part.

Did you every play them or what street game’s did you play. There will be another post soon with more game’s on it. It’s a pity the kid’s don’t play them now because the game’s will be lost for ever.


There whould usually be 2 or more player’s, each player would have different sized marble’s.

The game should be played on a smooth surface usually concrete, but any area of ground can be used.

A circle 1ft in diameter is drawn and that would be the target area.

A circle 2ft in diameter is drawn and you are not allowed within that circle to play.

The first player trie’s to get his marble into the circle, the second trie’s to knock it out but remain in the circle.

If they miss the third player trie’s to knock as many out as he can, if he doe’s he keep’s them.

There were boy’s with large bag’s of marble’s and they were the very good player’s.

Alzheimer’s Prevention Project Test

Take this simple test and see how you do with it.Alzheimer’s disease costs the nation and the individual more than any other medical condition.

Super-injunctions are used to gag investigative reporting.

These injunction’s should not be handed out to peple just because they want to protect them selve’s, they should only be used as they are now to stop reporting on a court case while it is still going on.

Injunctions have become one of the most effective tools powerful individual’s and corporation’s use when they want to silence the media.

People with money and influence who have done wrong or think they have a secret that the public should not know about are granted them.

But this privacy law, used by some as a way of protecting against tabloid intrusion, the use of injunctions is being used far wider than ever before.

In their simplest form, they prevent new’s organisation’s from reporting what happen’s in court, usually on the basis that doing so could prejudice a trial.

It is time that judge’s stopped granting ‘super-injunctions’ which are so absolute and wide-ranging that nothing about them can be reported at all.

Shame on the present Government, but more the last labour Government for putting so much pressure on the N.H.S. with all the cut back’s.

A young married man, MR. Joi. Nelson from N.Ireland was told at the Belfast City Hospital that the doctor’s had found a brain tumor and that it was the worst kind to have.

They also said it was a very aggressive type and the outcome would be terminal.  At the Hospital he was given radium treatment and Chemotherapy.

He and his wife spent a lot of time on the web looking for help but found nothing.

Giant asteroid to narrowly miss Earth

A giant asteroid will only just miss earth later this year, according to NASA.

The huge rock, dubbed YU55, will pass within 201,700 miles of our planet in November.

If it crashes into earth the impact would be equivalent to 65,000 atomic bombs, while the crater would be six miles wide and 2,000 ft deep.

The asteroid, which weighs 55 million tons and is 1,300ft wide, will be the largest ever object to get so close to our planet. It orbits the sun every 14 months.

It will be closer to us than the moon, which is on average 238,855 miles away and will be visible through a small telescope.

The best times to view it will be between 23:28 on 8 November and 07:13 on 9 November (UK time).
