Re: Just when you want to gab!

Thank goodness! That's one less screaming complainer on TV!

I have never viewed a happy episode. Always informative, for them that don't read the Sun or Mirror, but always complaining and moaning.

Re: Just when you want to gab!

Noooooo!!!! I liked Pat.

Although I have to say I stopped watching after the whole Steve Owen & Mel thing. I don't know. For some reason I liked him and didn't like where his story was going.

Re: Just when you want to gab!

Actually she is still alive (After all it is only fiction folks!), but they need her house for the upcoming Olympics visitor scandals.

Re: Just when you want to gab!

I think it was when Ena Sharples had to leave her home at the mission that offers of accomodation were sent by her TV fans - so many folk couldn't tell fact from fiction.

Re: Just when you want to gab!

I'm sure people think Dot Cotton is real! She's been around since the beginning of time. I saw the "who do you think you are" episode with June Brown and she smols like a chimney just like Dot. But she dresses much better and has a pretty swank house and lots of lovely family & friends.

..and a very interesting family history. I'm really interested in finding out about my roots. I'm not expecting much more than poverty and communal graves but I'm about ready to pay a researcher before my only living elder relative dies on my mothers side to have a dabble.

I LOVE "who do you think you are"! Probably because we can trace or family right back to the 1700s. They all come from the same island and no one did anything particularly interesting. :-/

Have you tried the site they recommend on the show? (Can't remember the name now). You can find quite a lot there. I'd like to do this type of work. I think about it everything we get someone asking us for help finding Swiss relatives. I think "Hum, could I turn this into some sort of freelance work?". I think it would be fun.

Would you like someone to practice your first case on? naturally not for free but I've been playing with the idea for so long.

Re: Just when you want to gab!

Mini, I've got loads now but there was a mysterious disappearance of one relly that is causing probs. Been in touch with a relly in Australia, cousin mothers side and I've got loads of info.

Next time I go to Liverpool I have to check out a graveyard as there were two men with the same name who died in a short space of time, hopefully the grave will show by the descriptions if it was our man or not.

So exciting.
