  1. You should always check receipts. The Archer Road Sainsbury often has offers on the shelves that aren't honoured at the till. It should be a matter of course to check your receipt, is there actually anyone who doesn't??
  2. Any idea what fur it is? It could be quite valuable, or worth next to nothing depending on the answer. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_sacat=0&_from=R40&_nkw=fur+coat&_sop=16 As for it being the product of dead animals, well they died a long time ago. To just bin it would be in some way disrespectful to their lost lives.
  3. That's somewhere I've heard of.
  4. Yes, my premium is quite high, but considering the damage cost £65,000 to fix I'm not complaining. Insurance is a great institution and it's worth paying for good insurance with a proper company rather than scrimping with one of the bargain basement companies. We're with the Halifax and their service was very good.
  5. This was a recent classic front page from the Star - https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BgQ9-rzCUAA9Ljo.jpg
  6. Where is Wordsworth Avenue?
  7. The hole in the Manpower Services Commission building at the bottom of the Moor was designed to accommodate the monorail so it could pass through and onto London Road. At least that's what I was told.
  8. Well I'm happy to pay the extra because I've been flooded twice.
  9. Can you explain in a bit more detail please?
  10. Do you remember PIE in the news in the 1970s? I do, the tabloids had a field day. I don't remember the name of their leader, but he was hounded out of the country.
  11. Is it really a shame that it costs £10.50 extra a year on your house insurance to cover those who are at risk? Isn't the pooling of resources to cover risk what insurance is all about?
  12. If I had the money I'd buy a Richard W Smith watch. But I don't. I can still admire them though, they're entirely made by hand at his small workshop in the Isle of Man. I believe he buys in the spring, and the straps, but everything else is personally hand machined to a level of perfection hardly seen these days. This very short video made by the BBC is a good introduction - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bp88Tl-ontU And there's plenty more on his own Youtube channel.
  13. I was never a fan, but I saw them for free in 1978 before they made it big. They were headline act at the annual end-of-year free concert that Sheffield University Student Union organised every year back then. They were just on the cusp of becoming famous, through John Peel championing 'Sultans of Swing' on his radio show. It's still the only song of theirs I really like. I know John Peel is better known for playing punk music back then, but he was also responsible for Dire Straits getting famous. *** I looked it up, it was 13th June 1978
