  1. If this carries on the word "man" will be obliterated from our vocabulary, unless of course it has "wo" in front of it.
  2. I think what he meant was it would have been better if the road was closed due to high winds, not that the lady was killed due to high winds.

    Plastic, should we stop using it?

    I agree that we have to use less plastic, but 90% of the time we the consumer have no choice. Take prescription medicines, once upon a time the pharmacist dispensed them into little brown glass bottles and we returned them when we got our next prescription. Now we get them all in cardboard boxes with reams of paper and the actual pills in plastic. So thats just one way we have no choice.
  4. I was sitting on a bench at the top of Stannington on Saturday evening, and I saw this as well I presume it was a meteorite as it came over from east to west and disappeared over the valley at Loxley, presumably burnt out.
  5. Some people work hard all their lives, pay into pension pots, pay NI contributions, then die just after retirement, and then all their hard earned cash goes to the government. My Dad paid what was called super annuation for all his working life and when he died my Mum didn't get any of it.

    Buying a Car on Finance - Any tips ??

    Take out Gap insurance then if you have an accident, the gap insurance pays off the remaining finance.
  7. This also is my bugbear, all the student houses and accommodation around us don't pay council tax, yet get all the same services. The landlords rake in enough money from said students, and therefore should pay their fare share of council tax, in my opinion. What about all those student flats they are building in Sheffield, do none of those pay council tax?

    Road resurfacing

    Oh good, at least they are still working Thanks ---------- Post added 29-12-2017 at 15:50 ---------- There are signs up now round Crookes saying there will be road closures for resurfacing from 8th January, for 12 weeks, so fingers crossed we will eventually get our road done so no more broken springs and flat tyers

    Road resurfacing

    I know there are a lot of threads about Amey and the roads, but I just want to know if Amey are resurfacing roads anywhere at the moment. Our road was scheduled or 2015, then 2017 but nothing has happened, would appreciate if any one knows.. I have tried their web site, but it is still saying 2017. Thanks
  10. I too have lived here for over 40 years, and my children went to Westways, and I have never heard them mentioned before, never had a memorial service on Armistice day, and Western Road pavements are a nightmare to walk on.
  11. Well I wouldn't build a big posh house there on junction of two very busy roads, but each to their own.
  12. No not a house, massive steel structure, could possibly be an office block, but it is a bit overwhelming where it is.
  13. I have noticed a massive steel structure on the corner where the police sub station used to be, does anyone know what it is going to to, it looks rather large there

    Summer/winter time

    I agree with this 100% I hate dark nights. The powers that be keep on about children going to school in the dark, but nowadays most children are escorted to school, whereas in the "olden days" we all walked to school on our own

    Total knee replacement.

    Hi I have had two total knee replacements. I would highly recommend the op. I had spinal injection both times and have had no problems. You feel better afterwards with the spinal. Just remember to wear your stockings afterwards, I didn't and ended up with clots on my lungs. The op has given me my freedom back and I now do around 15,000 steps a day. Its important to keep mobile after also as it helps in the longrun Good luck hope it all goes well
