  4. Hi Good folk of Sheffield. My TV (Sony KDL-40Z4500) has bust. It no longer powers on. Thinking it was a fuse, i changed this. Still doesn't work. I tried an alternative power chord, still doesn't work. Anyone on here who is an engineer and or knows where to take it would be appreciated. *EDIT: I can see other topics similar, however didnt want to piggy back on their threads. Many thanks in advance.
  5. There are too many to list. I cycle to and from work 7+ miles each way. I am sure that one day the sate of the roads will cause me serious harm at some stage. I have already come off my bike due to the potholes. I Ride from the top of Standon road, which in my opinion is one of the worst roads. I like the fact that The full run from Ecclesfield rd, Tyler street all the way through to Carlisle St have been re surfaced due to the Toure De France. Its so annoying that because this event is coming to our region they decide to sort the main drags out but leave the surrounding roads in unsafe complete disrepair.
  6. Submitted. GREAT POST!! Ive been wanting to find an initiative such as this and am happy it seems that something is being done. Biggest issue is the shocking state of our roads. Some areas are life threatening IMO (At night without adequate lighting) Hope something positive happens.

  13. Hey sheffielders!! ive been reading the many other dentist threads, however still feel i need to ask some questions if i may? Ive never really liked going to the dentist but is not a major problem just more an inconvenience> :-( about 2 years back i broke a tooth and needed an emergency appointment so rung round loads of dentists and happened on one who had an appointment available ( off manor top across the tram tracks from netto) here are my quires- whats the difference between NHS dentists and private- im assuming obviously the cost etc im in full time work aged 30 so... if i went to an NHS one would it be cheaper that private?? does anyone know if the dentist in question(near manor top) is any good?? do dentists rip you off with cost of treatment etc?? im needing another appointment soon, pain from another broken tooth and was afraid id go, then them look in my mouth then say , yes you need that looking at, then book me in for the following week, and bang a hefty "ive just looked in your mouth" charge... etc thanks so much for reading and would appreciate anyones help/advice/opinions etc regards john

  18. Hey folks... Just a heads up to you all/or plea for any information... on wednesday 3rd feb... a friend of mine was driving home from work. She was the passenger (her partner driving) they approached firth park roundabout (from hucklow road) (firth park libary on the left) and as they got to the roundabout someone opened the back door and tried to get in. the male was covered up with scarf and hat so couldnt ID him. With extream haste they drove off, dragging this person half way round the roundabout, eventually he let go. please be careful and lock doors etc... she had a very lucky escape!!! thank god!!!
  19. Yea I got there comin from the match... Couldn't see much but close to the dip where the lights are was a civilian car accross the road over both lanes... Couldn't see any damage...
  20. Well heres what i know so far... weve managed to get into town from shiregreen, was more or less fine compared to the first bout... BUT!!!! when ive got into work... someones said that they were on a bus into town and the driver said to all the kids (on the bus) to get off it because they wouldnt be able to bring them home at 3...cos they were gonna get called off very soon!!!! weve then rung travel line... and theyve said if it carrys on then ALL buses will get pulled... and ive also checked the weather satellite and its gonna get horrid... till about ealry afternoon... so if your wondering if to travel anywhere on a bus... make sure you have a plan B if the buses get called off!!!!
  21. Hi there I live at shiregreen in a terraced house, and lastnight my outhouse was broken into and my new boiler ripped out of the wall, leaving the water & gas pouring out all over......please be aware that when the police came they same this was happening more n more in the area.....so be careful and be extra aware, as i live on the busiest main road in shiregreen and cannot believe these people could have got away doing what they do!!!!!
