That sounds serious TC, my prescription is going for a hike in the hills and loud music, preferably thrash metal. :mrgreen:

Cheers Ruby ;)? Grand hike this morning. I passed on the loud music though - much rather listen to the birds :D

I've loved the Gerry Rafferty original of this song since I was a kid. How did I never come across this version until now? :shock: :D

The Repair Shop??????

Post by Iroquois » 03 Jan 2020 20:04

Hello!

Who can tell me about The Repair Shop?

I just got Netflix recently and have been bingeing a few shows. I absolutely love The Repair Shop and wonder if these people that bring in treasures have to pay for their restoration? Surely those talented repair experts have to make a living!?!?

I used to watch a similar show about restoring stuff in the US, and part of the show was where Rick Dale tried to estimate a fee that the owner could afford and still pay for all the repair, parts and etc.

You must tell me more about this show and the talented restorer's and if anyone has had anything restored there.

Hi Deanna - sorry, I only just saw this post! I love The Repair Shop too - it's addictive viewing, isn't it? If I'm honest, I don't know enough to answer your questions, but I hope that someone else can! I think they're still making episodes - I hope so! It was quite a hit and was moved 'up' a channel in the UK from BBC2 to BBC1. In the meantime, these links might help...? ;)? <:)>

Misheard Lyrics #94: I heard this on the radio the other day and it reminded me that as a child I thought the lines were:

"Don't be afraid, just knock on the door,
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'
Then a voice from the pub said.... (w) :lol:

Come to think of it, I also thought they were singing "He is a woman", not "Evil Woman" :?

That Jeff Lynne could've done with ELOcution lessons :D :D :D
