    Dam Flask - low water levels

    Hi hilldweller, thanks for the link. I would estimate from the pictures that the flow is about 4 inches deep by approx 3 feet wide. This was May 2017 after a dry spell. I was advised then, (by an unqualified source) that this flow was just seepage into the tunnel from the moors. Thanks for the information. I am still in contact with my source at Severn Trent so will update as and when I get more information.

    Dam Flask - low water levels

    Hi Hilldweller, I have been researching the building of the Rivelin Tunnel and as part of that process I have been in contact with engineers at Severn Trent, both at their headquarters and locally. The infrastructure does exist to send water through the Riverlin Tunnel but the valve at the Ladybower end is closed has been for many years. My contact is trying to find out when it was closed, and if I hear more I will post it.

    Trying to get my music heard

    Hi Ava, agree with Mancmart, more of a production issue than a content issue. Good songs and singing. You could download Cakewalk by Bandlab, its free and has Plugins, virtual instruments. You would need an audio interface and a midi keyboard. Private Message me if you want any help. Mick

    Dam Flask - low water levels

    From information I have recently acquired there is no water supply to Sheffield via the Rivelin Tunnel. Although infrastructure exists this route would require water to pumped to a level approximately 70 feet above the normal levels to send it through the Rivelin Tunnel. I have spoken recently to an engineer at Severn Trent who advised me that the valve at the Ladybower end of the Rivelin tunnel is closed and has been for a while. I have photos of water exiting the tunnel but this is just water from the moors leaking into it.

    Sore heels after walking

    From what my lad tells me it depends where the inflammation is in the Plantar(the membrane that runs under all of your foot). The inserts I had supported around the edge of the heel so took the pressure off the centre of the heel where my inflammation was.

    Sore heels after walking

    I had Plantar Fasiitis for 10 months. Firstly because I ignored my Physio sons advise to rest it. Secondly I tried all the cheap inserts, gel inserts. Ordered some of the proper PF inserts off Amazon, bit expensive but they worked 100%

    Dr Who filmed in Sheffield

    There was shot of Wharncliffe Edge but it wasn,t overlooking Deepcar. Wharncliffe Edge faces West and it would have been the Pennines in the background, instead it is flat. Something "digitally enhanced" maybe.

    Learning to play the piano

    62 and did not know anything about music. I set off with a song book with songs like Sailing by Rod Stewart and just learned to play the melody. Gets you off to a flyer and you quickly learn the notes. You would be playing the melody in a few hours. I play mainly guitar but still use the keyboard for song writing. After six years I can play melody with my right hand and chords/arpeggios with my left hand.... unfortunately not at the same time. This is all self taught Blackydog and I will get beat up by "proper" keyboard players. So much on the internet that will get you going. Have fun that's the main thing, I have.

    Learning to play the piano

    Hi Blackydog, plenty cheap but good Casio and Yamaha keyboards about. I was similar to you but 62 and now have two keyboards and 8 guitars. I started on a Casio CTK 691 and still use it. Plenty of free instruction on the internet for beginners, as the saying goes "just do it", good fun if you want it to be. Just don't take it too seriously.
  11. Great to see a Grand Tour win by a Britain without all the negativity that is around Team Sky. Great story building up to this win and maybe he is threat for the Tour de France next year.

    Cycling - only in Sheffield :)

    You are right Skink, having commuted on and off by bike from 1967 to 2012 across Sheffield, I should know what to expect by now. The "on and off" is a bit of a pun as I have been over four cars when they pulled out without looking.

    Cycling - only in Sheffield :)

    And, in the real world. Coming down the A57 from Moscar on my road bike at just over 30mph and a metre from the kerb, a car came up behind. A lorry was coming the other way so he couldn't get past. He was about 6ft behind me so I politely gestured to give me a bit more room but all I got was abuse and finger gestures as he went. Normal "cycling in Sheffield" resumes.

    What type of job would suit this skill set??

    It is not true that the disabled go into the general job pool. Companies have a legal requirement to have a percentage of disabled on the payroll. To achieve this requirement some companies will take on and train employees who are disabled.

    Goodye to Wilder?

    I am genuinely pleased Wilder is staying. Now if a full strength Owls takes six points off the Wilder Blades next season there will be no excuses. (steady now).
