  1. I have grave news..... It is well kept.
  2. Must admit I am not keen on the Loxley range on beers either. I had high hopes for them but they seem bland to me and not very moreish. The Loxley is a strange pub for me, I prefer it in the warm summer months and like the outdoor part, interior wise the novelty has worn off with me now. However the food is still v good the couple of times we have been. Not a pub I'd spend ages in, but a stop off for a pint or 2 at the most. So, I doubt I'll be rushing to the 'Raven' ? is it called? Are they doing food here btw?
  3. My bold, this is definitely true, the roads would simply be a disaster if this was built, Rivelin Bank, Stannington Road and Rivelin Valley Road are already at capacity at rush hour as it is.
  4. Didn't realise that Longden Doors closed Feb 2019. Sad end really after all those years. The name still lives on in County Durham as the rights to use the Longden name and branding were bought by another company. https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/jobs-lost-as-historic-sheffield-door-firm-closes-134381
  5. My youngest daughter has just been told to get glasses, and while shopping for them I noticed an ad in Optical Express(i think) for £595 per eye for laser correction. Seems a good price, has the price come down a lot in recent years? Seems logical.
  6. I used to do this job for Currys a good few years ago and hated it, even back then tho we were warned that cars and vans follow your van around hoping to steal either personal belongings and/or stock that is on the van(e.g. tv's laptops) One pair of lads did actually get a large plasma tv stole off their van, it was about the time that lcd and plasma screens were launched and it cost a fortune. One of the worst jobs I've ever had.
  7. Must admit I felt the same about Pinders. My eldest starts at Forge Valley this week, and Pinders did a sale evening of stock at the school. We arrived only an hour after the start time and a lot of the stock had gone, which says to me they didn't bring very much. The stock answer was, "Feel free to pop over to the shop", Er, no. I hate Crystal Peaks, its a good drive from our end of town, and from the service we got at the school it didn't fill me with confidence to waste fuel 'popping' over there. They also did 'hold up garment to child, yeah that looks ok' style of sizing. Hopefully they'll get dropped by our school to someone who can actually supply properly.
  8. Blimey, Radio 2 would soon shut, what with Zoe Ball and her hangers on, and the idiots with the decrepit Steve Wright they could save a fortune!
  9. Yes he was back again this Sunday AM! Quite a sight while slurping my mug of tea in the garden!
  10. Yes it flew directly over us from Bradfield area we saw it land too, at first I thought it was connected to the incident on the Parkway, but it landed to close to us for that. Was a huge machine, either military or medical at my guess.
  11. Absolutely heartbroken for you all there. Me and my daughter attended the Family Open Day just a few days before, like many other people, we even got a tour behind the scenes so we know what amazing work goes on there. My little one is just coming up to 8 and she heard me talking about it, she was so upset when I told her, just thank God I didn't have to tell a 7 year old animal lover that animals were harmed too. Wishing you all the best in getting the centre back running properly again, don't let the scum grind you down, you all do a fantastic job!!
  12. Nice to see his family read this forum too...
  13. What a joke this area was today. What a day to actually decide to pneumatic drill across the road next to the Tesco Local. Why on earth that couldn't be done at night I'll never know. Kelham Island was a no go area and bumper to bumper.
  14. Indoor car boot sale today. RSPCA Animal Centre, Stadium Way S9 3JN between 11am and 2pm.
  15. Thought I'd resurrect this thread. Anyone in the know what happened to the new pub that was promised? I guess either they soon ran into problems, or it the refurb price costs are frightening.
  16. We too have loads in Lower Walkley, last year I walked out to my car and a large fox was sat bold as anything at the side of my car at 6:30am! They are always trotting up and down our street after dark, and playing on the grass opposite our house. One year too we were sat on our decking late one warm evening, and a large badger just wandered up the passageway while we sat having a summer evening drink. Closest I've ever been to one that, just wandered off when it knew we were there.
  17. Must just be me, but, I never got him. Never found him funny in the slightest. He always seemed to be trying to force a laugh, and came across as trying to hard.
  18. Can anyone remember the orange sports kit car that had Stevie Splash's name on it in the early/mid 80's? Was regularly seen around crookes where he lived on the next road to us.
  19. Also, the new coffee/food place Boo! is just around the corner, doing really well too by the looks of it.
  20. Thing is, when you use a photo copier nowadays, be it private or public, every 'log' or use is stored on the copiers hard drive, so whatever you want to print/copy will automatically stored on hard drive of the device used.
  21. Rather rub my eyeballs with 100 grit sandpaper for a couple of hours than watch this 'comedian'
  22. Agree with that, have you heard Zoe Ball? Horrible, horrible, rubbishy chit chat, the she may as well just be another commercial radio presenter with her 'crew' laughing at every word that drops from her mouth.
  23. Just watched this short film, that's a really interesting, and sobering, story of what happened that day. Thanks for sharing.
