James Bolam is from Sunderland and lived opposite the Bede School on Durham Road, although he appeared in the Likely Lads set in Newcastle !

It is common knowledge that he doesn't like the N.E at all and has cut all ties with his home town, he also fell out with his co star Rodney Bewes. Which is a real shame but hay ho !

Mars Bar.jpg
Came across this "Mars Bar Advert" in a copy of the Daily Mail from Wednesday June 7th 1944.
Look at the wording.. " ZONING now re-stricts Mars to the Southern Counties" ..

Thought that Food Ration Books would prevent most people from buying a Mars Bar in WW2.
I have so much respect for those that served & gave in both wars .. they gave for what we have today .

I wonder if that znning is anyhing to do with my then heart-throb Marianne Faithfull's fondness for them. She was a Southern gal, from Newbury as I recall.....

"Murray Walker is often the man credited with coining the slogan "A Mars a Day Helps You Work, Rest and Play", although he denied he created what became arguably Britain's most recognisable advertising slogan. Mr Walker was an account director in charge of the Mars business at the advertising agency where the slogan was coined in 1959."
