  1. Is that 1966 or late 2016 plate? Also same things as iamwoody
  2. Yes, lindylou53, that 'house/small holding' is the the former Rowell Bridge Inn. If you open Hillsbro's link and google maps (satelite) and compare the image/view it confirms your 'suspicions'!!. Another great link courtesy of Hillsbro 👍
  3. R.I.P. I am gutted to hear of Pete's death, a brilliant wordsmith 1 of the first singles I bought was 'What Do I Get/Oh Sh#t', still got it and still play it.
  4. Taxman With you on that, moreso after Neymar's shamefully embarrassing injury feign display at the end of the game against Mexico. Ontario 1981 Not what was in my mind at the time of my text to be honest. I have a relative who still 'crucifies' himself at the mention of 'that' 1966 game!. To me 1966 is OUR(!) World Cup, OUR WIN and OUR WINNING HEROES, who should ALL have been knighted (not left to live out their days struggling to get by, by selling off their medals etc to survive old age, but I won't get started on that shameful despicable outcome). HEROES EVERY 1 OF THEM to me and thousands/millions of others, boy to man!. For myself (and I believe!, others!?) I would love to see England win the World Cup in my lifetime...… It's on my 'Bucket List', has been for a couple (Ahem!!) of years now!!!
  5. The Royal Standard had a 'live' weekend the 1 before last and have a great ongoing live programme :thumbsup: White Lion, Heeley enough said :thumbsup: Just 2 of many that put on live 'performers' of a good standard. Depends on what you are looking for!!!??. Plenty out there giving a platform to live acts on the 'Sheffield Scene', if you look for them!. It's still a very vibrant scene 'LIVE' locally :banana:
  6. Once the Belgians fluked their 1st goal the japs went to pieces and got nipped at the death!!. Any team that throws away a 2 goal lead has no excuse for their defeat.
  7. PM'd you, Kellogz5 My apologies haddy, oops!.
  8. Good to hear his team-mates are talking to him!! :hihi:
  9. Ace of Base - All That She Wants, "All that she wants is a bowl o' gravy". Paul Young - The Butcher's Song!! "Every time you go away, you take a piece of meat with you". The buzzcocks - What Do I Get "Just wanna rubber, like any udder, what do I get".
  10. Solero (quote);- We were like Spinal Tap and changed drummers every five minutes, and at least one of them, a guy called Simon from Rotherham, came to an untimely end although it was not quite in the spontaneous human combustion category - he crashed his motorbike with a girl called Sirrah on the back in 1984 and both of them were killed. At one time we had a proper professional drummer, a guy called Kenny Slade, who had worked with Joe Cocker. Hi Solero. I believe the drummer may have been Simon Hart. I heard of his (and his pillion passengers) death years later, but never any details about the crash. He was a Sheffield lad probably living in Rotherham at the time!. R.I.P. Kenny can still be found enjoying his retirement in the pubs/bars of Crookes & Hillsborough corner.
  11. Neil Young - Greatest Hits I am not a fan of 'Greatest Hits'(!?) compilations, but this (unexpected) Christmas gift is quite enjoyable
  12. Sad to hear of John Noakes death and that he suffered so much in his last years. I shall remember him for the fond childhood memories he left me (and many others!) with. Hope he's reunited with 'get down' Shep. God Bless R.I.P. Noakesy
  13. Can/does anyone remember 'The Boxer'!?. he used to 'get about'! round town but was most often to be seen in Haymarket, mainly on the pavement just outside the 'Boulogne' pub (as it was back then, 80's!) where he would stand and shadow-box the lamppost for hours on end!. Apparently, certain 'Kindhearts' that used/worked in Castle market cared for him Boxer was often accompanied, in the last few years before he 'disappeared'!, by a younger guy (nick-named) 'Sky-Walker'!, who would stand and point at the sky, then walk off and do the same thing again further up the road. A phrase often heard when 'Sky-Walker' was around was "watch all t' idiots look up to see what he's pointing at!. makes thee wonder who's daftest!, him or them!?". Though he only occasionally looks upwards, no pointing these days!, happy to report that 'Sky-Walker' is still with us, I saw him on West Street last week and looking well, Bless Him.
  14. I worked in the Sheffield Pewterware trade and Laycocks supplied many businesses (large and/or small) - Little Mesters, Pewter, Cutlery, Engineering, Motor trade etc) with pumice, mops, dollies, for buffing & polishing etc. We sometimes had to call in to Laycocks to collect supply orders, and also used to make the occasional visit to Hill Bro's (Silversmiths) Ltd, I was only young and was fascinated watching those guys creating beautiful silver 'pieces'!. We were always escorted! by a big elderly guy, grey-haired, bit of a paunch, wore thin-metal-rimmed specs (a Silversmith, I believe!?), a really nice polite man. I left the trade and some years later our paths crossed!, we had a chat during which he offered his Hill Bros business card, should I ever have the need, please call in!. I still have the card in a wallet in the loft. Just in case! Happy times
  15. Hi Rich Thanks for the prompt reply, but why the delay for 'pay on the door' customers!?.
