Celery can travel with some celerity,
But would the salariat prefer celeriac?

Good to hersr form you Peter..Not sure what you mean by:
“The images on our TV
In black and white they transfixed me..”
…being a bit dodge Peter? Can you explain ?
We got our first B/W TV in 1957.
The World Cup in 658 was in black and white…but coverage was random. onml;y ayt night except on the weerkdn (!) and it weas basically whatever the Swedish TV company decided to put out live or recorded with sometimes only the second half live. You can check online.Hence the lines further on down….
No choices like we have today
You watched whatever anyway

World Cup 1958, what an emotional year for British football. England bereft of Byrne, Edwards and Taylor, lost in the Munich Air Disaster. Wales going out in the quarter finals 1-0 to a Pele goal, with John Charles sitting in the stands because he’s been kicked black and blue by the Hungarians in the previous game. Even his presence at the tournament had been touch and go as Juventus has been reluctant to let him participate. King John, who played centre half for Wales and centre forward for Juventus, and could play in any position on the field. I thank God that in my life I was able to see the Busby Babes, and John Charles’ Wales, play.
