  1. Abe books, used them a lot myself...new or second hand. https://www.abebooks.co.uk/?&cm_mmc=ggl-_-UK_Brand_Brand-_-naa-_-naa&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI78LnjMX46gIViLPtCh1r-A9oEAAYASAAEgJm9_D_BwE
  2. Already offering redundancy packages, and asking staff to volunteer to reduce working hours.
  3. and then of course there is the sub prime mortgage issue in America, sure this had something to do with the economic crash and misfortune we are suffering -
  4. But, she can shriek Alfieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
  5. Just seems a pathetic way of promoting your business in my opinion.
  6. Good idea, he might learn something useful
  7. They did vote labour then, Clegg stood for the Lib Dems.
  8. Hope the people of Hallam are not stupid enough to vote him in again, he's just not good enough to be an MP - and that's putting it mildly.
  9. I would have thought an ideal dog for an older couple, as they require little exercise and are quiet, but get advice from the rehoming people - think there is a greyhound rehoming group in Sheffield.
  10. I am due to retire shortly, and might be interested from next April onwards - sounds good to me.
  11. Anyone know a Tammy Lowe, probably from Gleadless Valley. I have something belonging to her, which was delivered to my house today. Send me a message.
  12. Time to book a dental appointment and have my teeth extracted. I will need a distraction from the news.
  13. St Paul's Tower, hardly old is it. But, I did notice that some of the facing, on the old T J Hughes building, had come loose and fallen off - it looks like marble, heavy stuff. Luckily no damage done to the public at large.
  14. In 2007, the week before the flood, we had a lot of heavy rain, the ground was truely soaked
  15. East Bank Road still closed at 7am, on one lane coming into town, this morning, not sure if that is down to flooding or roadworks. My bus was diverted, after leaving Daresbury Road, around Manor Top and down City Road. Last night it looked like the rain was washing away some of the road surface, that had been removed, presumably for re-tarmacing
  16. I think the situation is much worse in the south. I have no evidence for this, but when I went down there I have never seen so many people sleeping rough - it might be higher house prices, or more Tory councils - not sure really, but it's not good.
  17. I am aware of the pollution from cars. I used to live in S11, but now having moved to Gleadless and my asthma and cough has improved, this year. I have started using my inhaler again now, for the first time in about three years. I assumed it was the hot weather and little wind blowing the pollution away, cutting down the trees won't help as they make an enormous contribution to air quality, especially on busy roads.
  18. Are you overloading it, I have heard if it's too heavy it can go into the dustcart - although this may be an urban myth.
