  1. Brother in law has a Tesla P90D....I teased him about it to be honest...he could have had an S class from his company, but its convinced me. Quoted range is 300, but it does 200 easily, and he almost never visits a charge point...twice a year on holidays, just charges it every night. In many ways its more practical than a petrol or diesel. Oh yes....0-60 in 2.8, but that's not why he bought it....
  2. Pete Cowan golf academy. Number of coaches there, and they teach every standard. My 8 year old goes there in the kids group lessons, and so do a number of tour players.... some of the best coaching available anywhere.
  3. both are nice to be honest. Dore is more expensive, but Totley primary is a better school at the moment. Both are good though.
  4. Please tell me thats a joke.....from your other responses, its hard to tell.
  5. Clearly a teacher wrote the question and provided the answer.
  6. I was actually joking....the joke of this thread is that he IS a teacher. I did a maths degree...seems I'll need to teach my own kids maths.
  7. It doesn't matter if he's wrong....its not like he's teaching our kids maths is it?
  8. This thread is funny...so many people are mathematically illiterate. I'm going to a session tonight at my son's school about how maths is taught. He's 5, and started school in September 2011 Shall I ask when BODMAS is introduced ?
  9. I was on a train from Glasgow and Edinburgh, and me and a mate were talking about playing golf at Muirfield . A very serious local blurted out....." you'll no get on ta Muirfield ." I asked why and he said....."they don't let Tomataheeeds on" As you can imagine......it sort of stuck.
  10. Strong words against Iran plays well during elections. Doesn't mean the US will bomb Iran.
  11. This is what I mean about playing to a domestic audience. Iranian leaders have to say this sort of thing otherwise they are considered weak. It doesn't mean they will actually do it.
  12. No is the obvious answer....but....its a bit rich other nuclear nations complaining isn't it? All the posturing from UK, US, Israel and Iran is all aimed at a domestic audience. I take it all with a large pinch of salt. The US has been saying for 20 years that Iran is 6-12 months from getting a nuclear weapon. 20 years later, they are still 6-12 months away. I don't imagine China or Russia wants Iran to have a nuclear weapon either, and they'll have more success persuading Iran than the west will.
  13. yikes....that's expensive. I was thinking about getting a taxi, but cheapest parking at the airport was £21 when I looked last week....and "valet" parking was £50. Plus my fuel there and back to make the comparison fairer...
  14. Cost of electricity is now a much higher consieration for instance in IT than it used to be. Danny actually contradicts himself. I thought earlier in the discussion he was arging for this very same calculation, but at a personal level of spend, rather than for a business.
  15. More to the point...if one shot nearly hit you and the next one was 20 metres away, may I suggest you point him in the direction of a PGA qualified pro. He needs some help with his swing.
  16. Thats one view of it. It happened to me - a tennant decided to leave just a few weeks after signing a 12 month contract. I figured I might just as well get another tennant in, and get on with life. I was more cheesed off by the tennant getting the whole deposit back from the company holding it - despite her throwing some of my furniture in the skip and swapping my Bosch washing machine for a cheaper one. The deposit paid it all back to her before they even spoke to me about it. I fllied the paperwork in as requested and they just paid it all back. I just put it down as a life lesson - pick your tennants more carefully.
  17. Or perhaps as a society we need to come up with some different answers, such as working from home more often. Lots of jobs can be done at home for at least some of the time.
  18. I think all he is saying is that for a lot of people ( not all of course) a proportion of spend on fuel is discretionary. Now income tax is also discretionary for high earners - they find a way out of paying it all. So fuel tax MIGHT be a fairer way of taxing people than it looks at first sight.
  19. Not sure it would work like this. If people have a bit of "spare" cash, they are possibly more likely to use it to reduce their outgoings, or paying off debt. That doesn't grow the economy, create jobs or result in tax revenue. i can see why the Chancellor wants to take the cash now.
  20. ITs a nice area....some of prospect road is very busy though -if you come from Bradway road to Woodland place, its busy. The bits that breaks off towards Prospect Drive, then its quiet.
  21. When I get "...whats wrong wi yer ?"... I wish I could reply with "I don't know...thats why I'm booking an appointment with someone thats had some medical training..." I'm sure receptionists don't have an easy job, but they can be rather unpleasant. As others have said...just turn up, and if they challenge you on it, all you have to do is explain that YOU felt it was sufficiently urgent.
  22. Blair V Brown Adams v Paisley Mandleson v Skinner Imagine the pay per view potential.
  23. I know...smart arse (me) on internet talks crap....whoda thunk it..
  24. Actually....I've got this wrong...you're right, its not clear. But I do know from other threads that Planner1 works for Manchster City Council, not Sheffield. I also have to say that he ( i assume its a he...could be wrong) gives a useful insight into how these things operate - he's often not agreeing or disagreeing with a poster - he's telling you how the process works. I've disagreed with him on a couple of topics, in particular the use of the phrase "fly-parking" which really winds me up, but generally he gives us all a view of how these things work from the other side. No point having a personal swipe at him....I'd have given up a while ago with how rude people are to him.
  25. No, I got got that bit....did you miss the signature on everyone of his posts saying he works for an authority outside Yorkshire ?
