When I used to use the train from Cross Gates I'd come out of the LCS main entrance and walk towards City Square passing the Queen's Hotel Brasserie. I never had any idea what a brasserie was or is and if I'm honest I still don't. I suppose I was/am just too idle to find out.    
Daft I call it - What's for tea Ma?

I love Laurel and Hardy.

I like Laurel and Hardy too, Stan Laurel was the real brains behind the duo writing many of the scripts.

Here's a great 1956 home cine film and last ever footage of Laurel and Hardy ever shot together, in colour too Regular Smiley

It's an anagram of Brassiere - just don't get 'em confusedLaugh
The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, moves on; nor all thy Piety nor all thy Wit can call it back to cancel half a Line, nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

The L & H appreciation society (sons of the desert) used to meet regularly at the New Scarborough pub on the old Dewsbury Rd. in Tingley..............don't know if they still do but they used to draw quite a crowd.
