  1. What is 'edgy' comedy to some will always be offensive to someone else. There's no straightforward answer to this as you either have free speech or you don't - there's no halfway house!
  2. Been to Harrolds today - good service and even better prices! Very knowledgeable staff - never knew locks and keys could be so complicated!
  3. Jusoda!! - haven't heard that name for about 50 years despite all the reminiscing I do with cronies nowadays!!
  4. Got a friend who lives in one of these 3 bed houses - it's lovely - decent size, near countryside, Aldi, Asda, Parkway etc. Seems a nice area too and prices not bad. They are very happy with it.
  5. Does anyone know which type of lily doesn't attract these beetles? I've got lilies in pots which get eaten to death but day lilies aren't touched. Are there any other types which aren't affected? Thank you.
  6. Wonder if it's a Sheffield saying as it's normally "effing and blinding"?
  7. Yes that's probably true but the difference nowadays is the use of foul language is treated as 'normal' by so many. Can never remember the F word being bandied about in public when I was young!
  8. A sign of the times I'm afraid - in our youth you would never have dreamed of swearing in front of your parents, women or children. The lack of respect shown to people in these categories is a symptom of the breakdown of society's values.
  9. Oh - didn't realise that - thanks for info. Didn't see it on google either!
  10. Started a similar thread a few years ago but can't find it! Saw a fish today - presumably a trout - trying to leap (unsuccessfully) up the weir at Hillsborough Corner by the bus-stop. The river - as you can imagine after recent downpours - was very fast-flowing so the poor thing didn't get very far! I seem to remember looking this up on-line and thought it was supposed to happen in autumn. Any explanations anyone?
  11. I never venture into that area for that precise reason - it's intimidating.
  12. Tony and John the 'pram man' both make me proud to be a Sheffielder - they make a brilliant pair - both being of a similar age and disposition - not wanting to put themselves in the spotlight and both working tirelessly for others. It is tinged with sadness that in both cases it was a tragedy that set them both on their respective paths with no thoughts for themselves - a true inspiration.
