Well, I'm up for Southampton, but I suspect Tom knows that already. Perhaps some older forum members have misinterpreted "Noggin" in terms of old childrens TV......

I used to like Muffin the Mule when I were young but I suspect it's illegal now

Manchester Airport Visitors Park...
Cheap to park, plenty of space, Concorde ( although it will be fully booked ), and a butty shop which does some nice nosh !

Borrowed it, Bernie [:D] Think it has been around since Muffin, which we used to watch while ostensibly repairing the sets we were watching it on. Bill and Ben and Andy Pandy also spawned quite a few jokes:
Weeeeed! Who's weed?
We know what Andy and Looby are up to!
And who could forget the Clangers?

Good suggestion, MB. What are the parking charges, though - pubs are free! Would be nice to see G-BOAC again, though - glad we managed a flight on that beautiful machine before she was grounded.

No, that is not my DS

Think it's about 2/3 quid to park. There is ( I think ) a pub nearby, can't say anything about it though, because we were late, and everything was a blur !

I used to ROFL when one of the educational programmes came on - you may not have seen it, but it was supposed to teach kids the vowel sounds.
'I' was represented by a puppet made from a bean can and a tin funnel for a head, who kept shrieking "I'm Jim, the tin man" in a broken-razor-blade voice worthy of Cilla Black. Can't remember if it predated the Wizard of Oz.
The pub near Manchester Airport - don't suppose it has a big car park?
Airport parking does sound reasonable - I was visualising a fiver or so.

I got taught to read (in 1972) using something called ITA - blinking useless - now i cant spell for a toffee! - Mike are you thinking of Mr. Spoon? wasnt he a baked bean tin?
Airport Visitor Ctr sounds good, off to NEC Brum this weekend with a mate who has a shopping list for his Morris 8 Tourer!

Airport good for me too. If I remember it's about £3 to park and there is a pub nearby, but no clue if its any good or not.
