  1. The gentleman quoted is clearly mentally retarded/deluded and as such should be ignored by every person with a functioning brain.
  2. Yawn. Please change the record.
  3. Never quite sure whether it's fireworks or gunfire that I've heard emanating from the Burngreave/Pitsmoor area most evenings/nights over the last couple of weeks. Has there been any religious festival during this period?
  4. If only my MP's main campaigning cause wasn't the "rights" ("yooman" or otherwise) of illegal immigrants and other assorted 'non-contributing' persons I could perhaps have opened up a correspondence along those lines with that gentleman. As it is I'd just be wasting printer ink or bandwidth. Thanks anyway.
  5. Three healthy looking young men (probably mid-late-20s) shopping together for lunch snacks in the Kelham Island Tesco Express one day earlier this week. None wore masks - I'd think it very unlikely that all three of them were exempt.
  6. Most were at West Street Live - free entry shows (and lots of interesting bands)
  7. Online doesn't really cut it though. The whole thing about live music (of any genre) is surely actually being there. I went to at least one gig on 361 of the 365 days in 2019. I'll struggle to make 150 gigs this year (live streams obviously don't count).
  8. Not sure if he's trading at present but pre-lockdown there was an outdoor stall (bags/luggage I think) on The Moor selling and fitting much cheaper than that.
  9. A couple of friends from Kent are planning to visit Sheffield and have heard that some hotels are offering free accommodation. They mentioned the Mercure Sheffield Parkway as a possibility - it sounds too good to be true but does anyone know if this is actually the case?
  10. Planner1 may be retired. Although I don't agree with everything he posts I always welcome the insight he provides - sometimes in the face of considerable criticism.
  11. Hope you can find some time to play some of the great music that the current 'vintage crop' of young Sheffield/South Yorkshire bands are making,
  12. The Pinstone Street scheme was certainly publicised in advance (two weeks I think - I started a thread when I saw it) .
  13. Indeed. And then a year or two down the line she'll probably be involved in planning or 'executing' a terrorist atrocity.
  14. If cyclists choose to/really must cycle on the pavement they should (if not at all times then certainly on approaching / passing a pedestrian) travel at no more than 3mph. People walking on pavements should not have to be aware of /make allowances for vehicles travelling at 10mph+ The scheme under discussion is still rubbish though.
  15. Wouldn't a better (albeit more expensive) solution in this case to have been to have cut into the fairly wide (and more than adequate for normal footfall) pavements thereby extending the width of the existing cycle lanes - then adding the red and white barriers to still achieve separation of cycles and motor vehicles?
  16. I genuinely hate cars and all associated congestion and (despite being of "advancing years") have never learned to drive. I have cycled a lot in the past but now lack the fitness to do so (especially in Sheffield). Overall I'm very much pro-cycling/walking/public transport and anti-car. Despite this bias I still believe that this particular scheme is a misguided (if well-intentioned) shambles which should be abandoned and reversed forthwith
  17. I always assume that those gentlemen who drive at excessive speeds (particularly in residential areas and often in cars with over-loud exhausts) are attempting in some way to compensate for shortcomings in a certain part of their anatomy. Pathetic inadequates.
  18. I've had a purple one in a drawer for ages. Not planning to go on the rob anytime soon so I'd be happy to part with it if of any interest.
  19. I understand that the tables outside the Dorothy Pax on Victoria Quays are a very popular place to enjoy a beer on these warm summer afternoons and evenings.
  20. Yes, I noticed those and thought the same. Though they do sometimes make temporary tarmac 'slopes' to assist wheelchair/pram access where dropped kerbs can't be accessed due to road works etc.
  21. That does seem a bit daft. The existing pavement there was reasonably wide so the only benefit of taking over the former bus 'lay-by' seems to be providing an opportunity for the more 'spatially aware' pedestrians to steer an even wider course away from any beggars and assorted lowlife lurking under the covered section
  22. Full update from the council:- https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/roads-pavements/changes-footpaths-highways-covid-19.html
