  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. What's pleasant about driving on the Bithums,the bumps and holes shake the car to bits?
  4. 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?
  5. If you have your own Sky Box you can pay Sky £10 per month and you can then use it for recording etc.
  6. 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.
  7. No you don't,you get caught out if the parking meter clock is fast,work it out.
  8. It will be another council con trick designed to catch the motorist and extract more money in fines.Have a look at the parking meters down Hillsborough and see how many of the clocks are fast,a sure fire way to collect a fine if you don't check your watch and the clock are the same before you leave.
  9. For the past few weeks every time I have watched TV adverts there has been a group of people singing "support your local High Street". The Yorkshire weatherman has advised me to do the same,as has all of the National Newspapers.Why should I bother when councils all over the country have done their best to deter me from doing this? No matter where you go there are never enough parking spaces.If you can find one you will be charged an obscene fee ,and woe betide you if you are back a few minutes late,you will collect a parking ticket,usually from an obnoxious jobsworthy, but it can be via the post, and it will cost you around a ton. Councils have bled motorists dry and are now reaping what they have sown.Sensible people have given up on town centre shopping and it will take a lot more than a few songs or adverts to bring it back.
  10. I have been using an Acer Aspire 5732Z laptop for about 5 years now,I had only one E.Mail address and a long list of E.Mail contacts.About 2 years ago when E. Mailing a new contact he did not receive the E.Mail despite it being shown as sent.After checking and a lot of messing about I found that no E.Mails sent from this laptop with my E.Mail address on would reach him.However I then created a second E.Mail address and sent him a message from this address and this reached him every time,still using the same laptop.He also would receive messages sent from another laptop or tablet whichever E. Mail address I sent it from.As I could not rectify the problem I just put up with it.A couple of weeks ago the same problem has occurred with another new contact,E.Mails do not reach him using my first E.Mail address and the Acer laptop but they reach him when using my second E.Mail address on the Acer ,but reach him using either address on my tablet.I am now wondering if the problem has occurred on other occasions like if I have E.Mailed somebody from an advert and not received a reply.Has anybody any idea what the problem might be?
  11. Haggle on everything you buy.Big stores will haggle,especially large electrical dealers,car dealers,phone shops etc.Also don't forget to haggle with your TV,phone or broadband provider and the motoring organisations.Even if they don't come down on price they will chuck in an extended warranty or a freebie of some kind.You have nothing to lose by having a go.
  12. As far as I know only the big six have to offer this scheme.Claimants have to be on certain benefits and even if they meet the criteria to receive it they are not guaranteed it as the companies only have to offer a certain amount.
  13. According to the Mirror anybody who signs on to Universal Credit after Nov 20th will not receive any payment until the new year.This is at least 6 weeks.How on earth is anybody expected to last this length of time with no income? The mirror calls UC a Premeditated Cruelty and they are absolutely right.Thousands of cases of UC causing poverty, people to lose their homes,a massive increase in the use of food banks and people having no food,electricity or gas for weeks on end have been confirmed and reported yet this government still persists in carrying on with this useless payment system.When asked how she slept at night Amber Rudd said " very soundly". This country is, I believe the 5th richest in the world,yet needy people are treat like this.The government needs to sit up and take notice or it will get kicked out.Still, no worries ,all the MPs will have enough money to manage.
  14. As far as I know councils have a legal responsibility to dispose of the body.
