  1. I went to Morrisons this morning and found every single customer wearing a mask or some form of face covering. 90% of staff also wearing a mask.. I believe there are 3 types and categories of people out there: 1 - Those who wear masks are people who care and have respect for others safety and well being.. 2 - Those who refuse to wear a mask who couldn't care less about others and have total disrespect and disregard for others.. 3 - Those who are exempt or have health reasons for not wearing a mask... I fall into category 1...
  2. Hi All, Just had a potential email scam you need to be aware of.. Email looks like a genuine email from TV licensing authority, stating my licence is due to expire and i need to update my details. I know its a scam because for years now i have paid my TV licence by direct debit and just had it renewed. BEWARE of this TV licencing scam email...
  3. Hi, I am looking to have new quartz or composite kitchen worktop fitted on top of old worktop, approx 9 metres in length. Would appreciate any recommendations of kitchen worktop fitters in Sheffield 8 or nearby area. Thanks Alan
  4. Congratulations to Captain Tom for raising over 8 Million for the NHS.... I hope the NHS will not waste it, ideally it should go towards supporting family members of those NHS staff who lost their lives helping to save peoples lives and also go towards doing research in this terrible virus. I also hope that JUST GIVING will waive their fee, as it surmounts to quite a lot..... Or will they be greedy and keep it? WELL DONE TOM.......
  5. Of course God exists..................... But who it really is i do not know.. It's either "Mr Trump" or "Mr Putin" Well they think they're "God".....
  6. Here is my tribute to all those working for the NHS.. PANDEMIC The world is in the middle of a viral pandemic A virus that’s making people violently sick. Thousands becoming ill and dying of Covid 19. It’s a health catastrophe the world has never seen. Millions of people told to stay at home Many are frightened and living alone. Socialising and entertaining are all banned, Daily we are told to wash our hands. Countries in lockdown and businesses close When will it all end? No one knows. Life as we know it has become unsure, Until doctors and scientists develop a cure. Doctors and nurses put their lives on the line To help save your life and mine. Hopefully soon we will get out of this mess, So thank you to all who work for the NHS.

  8. Just had an email from WHICH magazine about a new scam.. Watch out for this... "A fake coronavirus warning text is being circulated. The sinister scam claims that your movements have been monitored through your phone, and that you must pay a fine or face a more severe penalty. If you receive the text, do not click or tap any links that these messages ask you to!
  9. STOP PANIC BUYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All these people bulk buying are causing problems for the old, vulnerable people with eating disorders... People with gluten intolerance like me are struggling to buy bread.. Supermarkets don't have a large stock of this bread as it is.. Supermarkets should restrict everyone to one item of each product........ People are acting as though the world is coming to an end...................And some people just don't care about others.. Went to Morrisons this morning and it was MANIC, worse than Christmas. One old bloke in front of me was coughing his guts up, spreading germs all over, didn't bother covering his mouth...
  10. Any one want any toilet rolls? Go to online shop Ocado.. If you are lucky you won't have to wait long.. ( I was 7625 on list, a two hour wait) https://www.ocado.com/?tdtoken=UhCp05N7uaUls9k2V%2BdNMSZ7omZGJ6%2BhNwpNJ6H3ptk%3D
  11. Here's another scam to be aware of when advertising on Gumtree, Facebook and paying by Paypal... My daughter recently advertised a fridge freezer for £100. She had a email from someone saying they wanted to buy it for their cousin, but she couldn't collect it as she was disabled in a wheelchair. The buyer asked if she could arrange for it to be collected by a courier but the courier wanted £300 to collect and deliver. The woman said she would pay £400 into my daughters paypal account..£100 for fridge and £300 for courier, and then requested my daughter to send the £300 to the courier via paypal. we noticed something strange!!! The couriers paypal email address looked like a private email address, also the said payment from buyer would not clear in my daughters paypal account UNTIL she had paid the £300 to the courier... When my daughter queried this with buyer via email and requested a telephone number to discuss the purchase and delivery, the buyer said she was DEAF.. LOL We realised it was a definite scam to get £300 from my daughter and no one would turn up for the appliance... WATCH OUT for this new scam when trying to sell items and paying via Paypal...
  12. That's a simple question to answer, it's easy money to earn.. When you consider that 95% of crimes do not get solved, it is very unlikely these scammers will be caught. The phone and email service providers like BT, Virgin, Vodafone, O2 etc don't do enough to stop it. Even when scammers are using their names to scam people.. Gone! have the good old days when people were honest, law abiding and trustworthy.. The majority of scammers i find have foreign accents and if they are in a foreign country they will enjoy ripping off the Brits. We are seen as a rich nation and scammers living in a poor country won't care about who they steal from.....
  13. The world of scamming is getting worse every year, with more and more scammers using different ways to try and scam people out of their money. I regular get emails and phone calls from someone trying to scam me. Many people get these scams and don't bother to do anything about it. We need more people to report these scams.. Sheffield Forum! Can we have a dedicated forum totally dedicated for users to tell us about scams they have received, so we can help all users what to watch out for. Hopefully by having this, more people will be aware and less likely to fall victims to a scam.. This link on WHICH site gives more info about reporting scams. https://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/advice/how-to-report-a-scam P.S. Just had a dodgy phone call from someone with a foreign accent trying to sell me a washing machine warranty.. BEWARE of this scam...
  14. All the people that think that HS2 will be a good thing are being mislead by all the pro politicians. Saving a few minutes on travel time isn't going to be much of a benefit. All the billions being wasted, would be better spent making our towns and cities more environmentally greener.. Use the money to provide all electric buses and public transport. Grants to encourage everyone to switch to electric cars. Industrial clean air filters in all our school play areas. Get everyone out planting trees.. There are so many other ways to better spend HS2 money... But yet again governments love squandering public funds on needless projects...
  15. He might not last one term, when Brexit back fires..
