I can just remember them, but I'd completely forgotten.
Were they "Outspan" oranges? Anybody remember?

Yes deffo oranges. I think they were wrapped as oranges used to be shipped in orange boxes made for the purpose see http://www.tanninimages.com/lightbox/ga ... VORGES.jpg

The tissue stopped them touching each other directly to keep them fresher I think.

White dog poo - quite a rarity these days, I still see the occasional white one, and far too many brown jobbies.

Dubbin on football boots.


I discussed this a few years back with a work colleague.

White dog sh!t used to be common when I was a kid, he says it's because people drive more now so you don't see as much (this was before dog owners had to pick it up)

The reason there is no white dog crap around these days is that Dulux have collected it all and turned it into their paint since 2010 VOC Regs.

But I really do wonder (sometimes) what the reason is.

You are not allowed to ask that one of Mr James O'Brien (he sometimes says so in the intro)

Wasn't the doggy diet very bone and tripe orientated back then?

You know what, there are so many great posts on this thread I really wish we had a 'like' button on here ( mods PLEASE take notice! ) where I just want to show how much I agree with the comments made.
This goes for other threads as well.

It may not be possible to do it straight away ( I have no clue about computers and techy things) but the next time the web site is updated it would be worth considering.

Do others agree?

Mike
