  1. I wouldn’t buy the product or use the services of any comany that has “solutions” in its name. It suggest, straight away a lack of originality, imagination and a dull, one dimensional, conformist corporate mindset. It’s a bit like hotels that invite you to “eat, drink, relax, sleep” or whatever..........perhaps it’s just me.
  2. As a little lad, I always used to get the bands Steely Dan and Steeleye Span mixed up. Noticing this my old grandad sat me on his knee and recited this little verse to help me; “Steely Dan jazz rock do play, While Steeleye Span play folk all day” I still use it to this day!

    BBC Radio Sheffield

    Toby Foster has become our own David Brent, by his aching attempts to regularly prove his own P.C credentials. It’s fascinating to listen to. I suppose if you’re taking the b.b.c dollar, you’ve gotta tow the line.

    Old Sheffield dialect

    What about; “It’s neither mucklin nor micklin” (It’s neither one thing nor another)? or; “I’m proper thraiped” (I’m really tired)?

    Yes, why was this post removed?

    BBC Radio Sheffield

    The theme of the show was classical music, he was interviewing two young classical musicians; M.M “So, a ‘composer’, is that the bloke that stands around in the middle, waving a stick around?” C.M. “ (laughs) no that’s a ‘conductor’” M.M “So what does a composer do then?” C.M “er, composes” Audio Viz.
  7. Anyone any idea what’s happening to this wonderful place? Closed because of ‘kitchen fire’ a few weeks ago, had a quick look around the back today, looks deserted and abandoned.

    weather forecasts

    Having read your post, I just compared the bbc weather website forecast for Manchester and Sheffield over the next couple of days, they are definitely different, which would possibly reflect the how the pennines do actually influence the weather for both cities.

    Pond Street shops

    My mum worked there in the 70’s, it was known as the ‘threpney bit’ because of its shape!

    What music are you listening to?

    His name is Jarrod Gosling, he was one half of I Monster, Sheffield chap, with a recording studio in Hillsborough, overlooking the Wednesday ground (hence the album title!). He has released 2 fine albums previously, the 3 making a kind of trilogy. There is more originality, talent and intelligence in 5 mins of his album than the entirety of the Sheffield ‘indie scene’........in my opinion of course!
  11. Went late last night, a bit tricky! The airport exit from the M60 was completely closed, with very poor diversion information. The airport itself appears to be undergoing a lot of-upgrading, with roads closed, contraflows and again very poor temporary signage, to cap it all the northbound exit from the M60 onto the M56 (signposted ‘Sheffield’) was closed! Good luck!
  12. I’ve always found K.A a real cut above the standard curry house experience - the service, eating environment, atmosphere. The food is always top notch, the fish dishes and especially the curried lamb shank are well worth trying!
  13. I thought it was funny also!

    Sheffield's New Lord Mayor

    The ‘letter’ is an infantile scrawl, knocked up and pasted all over social media with one obvious intention. It both trivialises a very serious issue and misrepresents this city and its people, by reinforcing every commonly held prejudice and stereotype.

    The ‘letter’ is so utterly wrong, on so many levels, surely you must see this!
