  1. Just put the castle back up ,that's what started Sheffield as a city ....rewind start again!
  2. Top bloke Len was RIP, a good author , historian and if I am not mistaken the local insurance broker .
  3. A proper craftsmen the like of which is hard to find these days RIP Stan a true legend .
  4. I just don't lock it or leave the handbrake on although in really cold spells the door rubbers have frozen to the body of the car and a hair dryer had to be used to get the doors open , Oh the joys of living in Scandinavia !
  5. The CB days .....good times....many friends made and a son !
  6. My mum used to work in that chippy and often talked about subway cyril coming over at closing time for a free supper.
  7. Its almost as expensive as here but at least the beer here is strong ,close to 6% for a standard strong beer and some bars have a limited bar menu with a beer thrown in for around £10 ....proper belly full too!
  8. Go and live in Sheffield and get back to normality that's my advice , I have lived in the land of the Swedes for far too long and the only true friends i have are other foreigners.Not nasty people the Swedish but their society is inward looking and everybody does the same thing ,no comparison can be drawn to life in Yorkshire.
  9. Oh don't get me started on this topic .....had the same problem selling a flat we owned in Chesterfield it cost me a business purchase because it dragged on so long, had to do most of the work ourselves (not easy when you live in another country).In the end i had to conclude that the solicitors are just a bunch of self serving ,thieving middle men!
  10. Blank it off ..emission control on diesels is a joke ..egr valve , particulate filter etc, in my experience are a licence to print money not save the planet!
  11. I am in Nyköping Duckfeet a fair bit further north than your bit of Sweden..
  12. I have just started replacing all my substandard new mechanics tools with old mostly Sheffield made tools as the only tools i have that have stood the test of time are the ones i first bought over thirty years ago. If only we had only seen the importance of quality and brand loyalty a few years ago maybe some of our tool companies would have survived.Yes Duckfeet i live in Sweden also and are sick of the swedes telling me how good their tools are and how they think they invented everything !
