  1. Actually thats a very good point I never thought o fit like that .. you would be grateful to stop at the first country with running water and electricity and the possibility of a job however low paid to feed your children ....if they all want to head ot the UK afterwards they sound like economic migrants to me ....
  2. It was Theresa May building the Brexit boat :suspect:
  3. I've heard its being renamed to the Peppermint Hippo ?
  4. I did think that Hillsborough has gone up market and is now a desirable place to live and go out in ? Does anyone still go in the Blue Ball ? :-)
  5. Yes used to like the Chantrey a traditional pub with nice friendly bar staff ... used to go there occasionally for the Saturday karaoke nights wonder if they still do them .... anyways I must consider a mini pub crawl around there sometime and maybe continuing into Chesterfield road and all that has to offer ;-)
  6. I remember Twist .. opened in February then barely stayed open 10 months before it shut just before Xmas what timing !! :roll::confused: ,,, and now Vivian works for OMG !
  7. They sounded like absolute low life - gypsys more like even that is insulting gypsys ... doing a runner and peeing in the streets !! Its not put me off Vito one iota - in fact the owners gracious and dignified response in the face of their quite frankly outrageous, ignorant, obscene and base rude behaviour , endears me more to him and his establishment !!!
  8. What a great idea I would like to try this myself ! I have already done parts of this walk myself before but not it all in one day - by the way shouldn't it really be called the south Sheffield round walk? ;-) I could start and end in either the Broadfield or the Union which are both close to me :-) Alas I think as its 11 hours roughly then I would say that the window for this year is nearly over and its probably one for next year say around June or July with the very long daylight .. but definitely something I would attempt, and some nice pubs on route - though I would probably substitute the Sheaf View for the Tramshed as its mainly bottles ;-)
  9. Its a very traditional old pub with a great interior and usually deathly quiet when you walk in I kinda like its old time character ! Though one cant help the feeling of "this is a local pub for local people" as you walk in ... well with the success of the Shakespeare and the The Ship inn, both nearby, and a real "real ale trail" developing in the area, I cant help feeling that this one is ripe for "renovation" although I hope that if they do they get it right and dont go overboard losing all its character like they did with the Ship Inn ... bring back the wallpaper ! lol
  10. So local Prides ... we have had Wakefield pride last Sunday , and just a reminder that its Doncaster pride tomorrow ,,, and a certain famous local international celebrities birthday :-O So I am sure that there will be a special show in OMG/Desmpeys tomorrow night :-)
  11. They have a pool table now ?? :.O great ! Must pop in for a look ... ;-)
  12. It doesnt seem like people chat anymore in the laundrette , people usually have head buried in phone or less rarely a book ! Which is sad state of affairs .. I usually drop and collect as live so close ,,, though there is the temptations of the wonderful Cafe #9 or the Byron pub when waiting !!
  13. Okay no need to be so snobbish about it .. yes they do and there is no alternative when someones washing machine packs in !
  14. It happened on Sunday Afternoon about 3pm - as I was walking back from the laundrette I heard a bang. I looked back towards the traffic lights junction ... seemed to involve one car narrowly missing another one ... seemed a chunk of wall gone but a car bumper was left there on pavement but gone the next morning :-(
  15. Conservation areas only ? well thats a new one on me I didnt know that no-one paid for the electricity to power street lamps !!
  16. Does anyone know why the street lights have been on constantly 24 hourse in certain roads the last few weeks such as Montgomery Road and Sheldon Rd, is it something to do with them being upgraded to the new low energy lights or will they ? Must be using a lot of electric - hope its not driving up my COuncil Tax yet again :-(
  17. Is this the old Market Tavern ? Is that the one re-opening ?
  18. Haddock is right - people comment on here masking barely their distaste that someone is different from them .. Diversity and toleration of it is the hallmark of a true democracy and free speech .. Its the list of outrages posted earlier on in this thread that outline precisely the need to still have Prides ! If the christians concerned were having a church service and gays and lesbians invaded it with placards would they be much pleased?
  19. What is this fantasy league - how do I get involved as a newbie ... can it be combined with drinking ale ? ;-)
  20. And now we have this in Sheffield which is even more disheartening and worrying .. cannot believe that Sheffielders would behave like this ... http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/couple-claim-they-have-received-death-threats-after-homophobic-attack-on-sheffield-bus-1-8044835
  21. I think thats really disgusting .. yuck and they pawing all the food :-S
  22. I thought it was a great day at Pride, great weather, some great acts on the main stage in particular Smiling Ivy and that Gary Barlow soundalike whop really got the audience going , loads of colour , fun and laid back people relaxing on the grass, my dog had to pick its way around them ... and last but not least the amazing acts on T'other stage in particular that act who sung Life on Mars and of course not forgetting the one and only unique , colourful, internationally talented local artiste Tyranna who was quite the liveliest thing that I saw all day !! ---------- Post added 02-08-2016 at 01:08 ---------- love::love: :love: I did not make the Climax After party as I had to walk my dog so I missed Tyrannas karaoke session which is a shame ... and I understand that Dempseys was packed to the rafters too so all in all a good day and night ! Hope its in Endcliffe Park again next year ;-)
  23. I had that the Christians were surrounded by the gays intimidated them and then the whole lot were surrounded by the police what a melee but the protest was very small by normal standards .... !
  24. Not long now to Sheffield Pride on Saturday which this year is held in endcliffe Park if it's half as busy as it was last weekend for Tramlines it will be really great ! Don't forget folks that the other stage kicks off at 1 p.m. and I do hope that yours and mine favourite Idol will be on the one and only tyranna !! Tyranna what time do you appear in the lineup ? Me and my dog shall be there to cheer you on ;-) can anyone post the rundown for the main stage have we got any other famous celebrities this year ?? ---------- Post added 28-07-2016 at 10:46 ---------- Does anyone know if Pride at endcliffe Park this Saturday will be a pay entry or not ?
