  1. Thanks for that RiffRaff. They most resemble lilies . I will replant and will hopefully watch them blossom .
  2. While repotting and clearing out some old pots I have found 3 bulbs. They are yellow and shaped like pineapple and about the size of a ping-pong ball. Can anyone give me any idea what they might be? Thanks in advance .
  3. Called to Asda at Handsworth , Check out lady informed me that last Saturday one customer bought as many toilet rolls as he could and then proceeded to sell them on in the car park as there were none left in the store. M.y thought was why let people buy that many.
  4. Stuart Fells 07969 436801. He is good and a proper gardener and landscaper.
  5. It is not the bay top nor is it condensation. I am looking for a tradesman recommendation from the helpful people on this forum.
  6. My upstairs bay is letting in water . I cannot identify if it's coming in through the rendering or if the old UPVC windows are faulty and maybe the seals are past their best.. Any advice on tradesmen welcome please.
  7. I would also recommend Cafe Indus. Turnip and Thyme and Olive are both on Ecclesall Road and offer great food. I f you fancy Thai food Thai Traveller on Hutcliffe Wood road is good. You may have to book with any of them as they are all small restaurants.
  8. Does anyone know how and why the bottom end of Marmion Road that leads up from Endcliffe Park to the shopping precinct higher up has been blocked off. I am pretty sure cars of the owners of houses on Ecclesall Road used to park there.
  9. Bracken looks like a grey and white greyhound but I think he is a cross. If his dog walker spent more time watching the dog , less time on her phone , less time gossiping . she might pick up the dog's poop. When another owner informs you the dog has crapped and told you where the dog has done so, you can't even be bothered to pick it up. Sadly a lovely park is becoming increasingly covered in dog turds because of people like you.
  10. Successive governments have loosened the restrictions on gambling and the public purse benefited to the tune of £2.7billion in 2017. Not so many years ago offcourse bookmakers had blackened out windows , received only a radio commentary with no tv pictures and were not allowed to advertise. As time passed live tv broadcasts were allowed and suddenly banks of tv screens appeared in betting shops. The major UK bookmakers pushed for more betting " opportunities" and greyhound tracks like Sheffield were allowed to run daytime meetings , Sunday race and dog meetings came into being. Attendances were not great at afternoon dog meetings ,however it was an incentive to keep punters in the shops. The arrival of betting exchanges greatly reduced cash betting office turnover however as a previous comment rightly suggested betting offices were allowed to install betting terminals. A pal of mine who worked as a betting office manager informed me several years ago it was the cash betting terminals kept his office viable. Punters queued to get on them. Occasionally the terminals would get trashed by an outraged punter who had done in his money. No way would the company report it as it would be bad publicity. The bookmakers are allowed to spend fortunes on advertising and must be ******* themselves laughing when Ray Winstone and Fred Done being the punters'pal advise " bet responsibly."
  11. I am considering an Indesit Aria ifw6330. The previous oven was an old Baumatic and is now at the council tip. The indesit comes with a plug fitted .I was under the impression that as it is rated less than 3kw it could be fitted either to a plug socket or hard wired into the existing connection.The existing oven is wired to a wall switch and into its own circuit breaker on fuse board. Forgive me if I am not using the correct terminology. The shop saleslady informed me that it cannot be hardwired. I have read other posts where the same question was asked which sadly degenerated into arguments between other posters.
  12. I will be getting an electrician to fit but i would like to know for definite what is involved before I order the oven .
  13. I am replacing a single under oven. The previous was hard wired. The one I am considering comes with a fitted plug. It is rated 2.4kw. Can the new one be hard wired and is it safe to do so?
  14. The AEU working Mens Club was somewhere on Stanley St.
  15. Having had experience of 3 elderly relatives living in various care homes over the past few years I would agree with Annie Bynnol's comments. Thankfully 2 of the homes where our relatives lived are now closed. We were happy with the care given to my mum at Cotleigh Care Home. I also wish you good luck in your search .
