    I have fond memories of that fire escape.

    'Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings' - Salvador Dali 1904-1989

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    The sadly-late Pete Odell would have been responsible for that. He ran it when it was taken over by Great Northern Inns and re-opened as The Globe. The place went downhill when GNI eventually sold it on.

    Always broke up the walk from Hooters to a pub near the ground rather nicely. Now I have to walk solidly until I get to the Trent Nav or Embankment.

    A pub that indeed in its later years suffered from location and relied heavily on matchday trade to survive.

    Hooligans kept that place alive 10 years longer and its no surprise that when the hooligan phase died off, The Globe died with it.

    RIP Globe, but now I'm a marginally fitter man.

    I think a 'guess your age' on here would leave many surprised
