Sterling Times ,_"the virtual scrapbook of British nostalgia", is here in celebration of "Uncool Britannia". It's the site where etiquette is still more important than political correctness. SterlingTimes focuses upon some of the eccentricities of British culture. It's about old and vintage radio, television, music and literature. It's about Englishness and patriotism.

Ovaltineys Section
 We are the Ovaltineys, little girls and boys,
Make your requests, we'll not refuse you,
We are here just to amuse you,
Would you like a song or story?
Will you share our joys?
At games and sports we're more than keen,
No merrier children can be seen,
Because we all drink Ovaltine
We're happy girls and boys.
