  1. No you are right there you are not allowed to say what you think nowadays.
  2. It's even worse at Castleton. There are two public roads in the centre of the villageThese roads are free parking for anyone but most of the residents have" private parking only" notices on their wall or window.These are of course, as worthless as the paper they are written on ,but the residents are now putting cones on the road which I believe is totally illegal.Last year I did move a couple and parked but I was immediately confronted by an old woman who told me this was her house so that piece of road was also hers so I had to go.I could see she was too daft to argue with so I went,after all Castleton has very little to keep me there.
  3. For years petrol stations have displayed notices telling drivers not to use mobile phones on the premises.Now many are displaying notices telling drivers they can pay from their seat with their mobile phone.Has it suddenly gone safe to use a mobile phone or was it never unsafe?
  4. Last time I rang Green Flag they told me the vehicle had to be under 10 years old. Can't understand why,newer vehicles are much more troublesome than the old uns.
  5. Sad to hear Jean Ferguson who played Marina in Last Of The Summer Wine has passed away.She played this part brilliantly,really made me laugh.
  6. You're doing better than me then,I didn't know any of them.
  7. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned "Love Thy Neighbour",this is really funny and racist.It definitely could not be shown now.The whole series is available on Ebay for about a tenner.
  8. Motorists are always advised by the various motoring organisations to have all tyre problems fixed by the experts.My wifes car was coming up for test and I decided to have two new front tyres fitted.Being lazy I just took it to the nearest place which was a large organisation with depots all over the country. When the tyres were fitted I was advised the rear tyres needed replacing and so did the front brake pads.Having fitted brake pads only a couple of months earlier and happy in the knowledge there was 4.5 mm of tread on the tyres I declined his offer.Driving home the car appeared to bounce and not handle quite right,so when I got there I checked the wheel nuts and tyre pressures.There was 19 psi in one tyre and 53 psi in the other.So much for trusting the experts,no point in going back I couldn't prove anything.Will just avoid the place like the plague and tell people I know to do the same.
  9. If you bought the car from a dealer he should have a V5C document with the previous owners details in.Dealers don't have to send the document in when they purchase a car, neither does the person who sold it to him.Be very wary of a vehicle without a V5C, always let the seller obtain one before you buy.This applies whether you are buying privately or from a dealer.Contrary to popular opinion a vehicle does not have to be insured in order to obtain tax,this is because DVLA run continuous repeated checks on insurance and will soon pounce if you don't insure it but it is not checked at the point of taxation.Don't forget if you now own the car you will have to SORN it if you have not got the correct legal requirements,even if it is only for a day.
  10. If they were genuine Traffic Wardens they should go further on into Bamford and nick some of the residents there.You take your life in your hands when you drive through this village.Cars are parked on the bends or close to the bends thus forcing vehicles on to the wrong side of the road,I have seen many a close call.Even on the straight bit residents park along the road despite the fact they have drives.
  11. Do you by any chance mean the Well chemist on Middlewood Rd just past the tram terminus? Since they took this one over it has really gone to the dogs.Prescriptions never ready,staff talking among themselves and ignoring customers and they don't seem to have heard of please and thank you.I go elsewhere and I live close enough to throw a brick through their window.
  12. What's pleasant about driving on the Bithums,the bumps and holes shake the car to bits?
  13. We have now had almost two years of contractors and council workers digging up various sections of the road from Middlewood to Deepcar .Most of that that time there has been anything from one to four sets of temporary traffic lights in operation.Frustrated motorists have had to waste hours waiting at these lights but on many occasions there hasn't been anybody working there. Just when we all thought it was about to end and the disgusting,dangerous road surface would be resurfaced, it appears Supertram may be extended to Stocksbridge.If this is true it will mean months of more disruption for the motorist whilst the tracks are laid for this congestion causing monstrosity to become operative.I fail to see why Supertram needs to be extended,why not just resurface the road,provide a decent bus service and let motorists have a rest from this mess?
  14. If you have your own Sky Box you can pay Sky £10 per month and you can then use it for recording etc.
  15. I was working it out this way.Say when you arrive your watch says 11.15 and the clock says 11.30 and you don't check the times.If you pay for an hour the ticket will show 12.30 expiry time. If you then arrive back at 12.30 by your own watch you will collect a parking ticket .because the clock will show 12.45.
