  1. Ok fair enough id happened to forget about the eggbox and peace gardens by the 70s and 80s yes it was in a rough state and a haven for homeless and street drinkers, but i was thinking more of the beautiful fountains that where at the top of fargate and i believe there was a fountain sandwiched on a roundabout between the train station and bus station both adorned with flowers for the life of me i cant remember the names of them there were also flower beds in between roads as i remember nowadays we have lots of concrete flag stones where once stood flowers.
  2. Everything, a bomb would do for start, lol then rebuild with more green space like we had in the 70's and 80's non of this concrete everywhere option was much cleaner back then too.
  3. ive actually enjoyed this series altho i dont think its quite there yet, with the likes of clarkson and co, was feeling a little disappointed with the length of this season.
  4. Totally agree whilst i do watch the program i cant help but think that when the camera crew focus on the parents and its quite easy to see a pushy parent that is the child doing this for his or her own benefit or the parents.
  5. Oh believe me Angel1 if i had caught the individual or individuals that do such things id have followed them home with broken glass in tow and posted it back through there letter box and i know that that wouldn't make me a better person but the thought had crossed my mind, just wished that people would be more responsible, id welcome anyone to use my wheelie bin that wished to disguard of an empty beer bottle rather than smash it against the floor/ground failing that the council provide bins at local shopping areas, and heaven forbid even for them to take there own home and disguard there. i was very angry that this happened at the time just glad that he is now able to walk properly again and bandages have come off. thanks to all that have wished him well, he goes back to the vet today for a final checkup on it and hopefully all cleared. Leadhammer.
  6. Im in the Lowedges area, i mean the shard of glass in my dogs paw wasn't massive by any stretch of the imagination and the likely hood of seeing it on the floor would have been pretty low but it caused him so much pain that he couldnt put his paw to the floor, either way it has made me look out more for broken glass in the area and its disgusting, only last night on my road i took a sweeping brush out to clear a broken beer bottle up nearby where my dog walks just for his safety, its gets me so mad that the instant a dog crouches down to have a poo and before you have had the chance to pull a doggy bag out that theirs some idiot that that shouts clear that dog muck up, but its another story for those that deliberately smash broken glass, i suppose its all in aid of a good laugh for them that do it but next time it could be a child that gets hurt seriously or otherwise.
  7. I recently had to take my dog to the vets for an operation on his front left paw costing nearly £400 pounds thankfully he is insured, The reason being broken glass that people smash be it broken beer bottles or any other smash able glass how hard can it be too take bottles that are empty and throw them in the bin, Im not bothered about the cost of the operation as i would pay the earth for my little one, what i want to know is what pleasure do people get from doing this, im totally disgusted in humanity right at the moment given that i pick my dogs waste up and through it away responsibly, why cant others be like minded. So angry.
  8. Same im also in the lowedges area see loads of foxes particularly around the perimeter of the transport ground living quite happily along side cats, see them most nights only a few meters away from cats washing themselves there no problem.
  9. I believe the person you are referring to was known simply as The American, in season 1 and maybe season 2, he was the test driver that went round the ebola drome in a simular way to the way the stig did it on top gear abbie eaton now does the ebola drome track why he was in that special i dont know.
  10. Totally agree, i got kicked into touch when i was a child about the rights and the wrongs in life, clipped round the ear and my backside belted if i continued to do wrong, though these days it classed as assault, and children no matter weather primary or secondary school are encouraged to tell there teachers or if not the teachers are well aware of what to look for, so dammed if you do and dammed if you dont.
  11. Already a done deal as far as im aware, already been told that both lowedges rd and old school sites are to close at the end of this year, Im not impressed either, its an absolute disgrace that doctor Mcalister has merged all doctors on the estate into lowedges and old school and now he's leaving the estate without. Edit: the information i received was directly told to me by the receptionists,
  12. Im not bothered by this petition not one bit what does bother me however is that the remain camp seem to think fraud is a good idea to get politicians to take notice, like i said David Cameron has always said no second referendum so why are the remain camp even trying, anyone else committing fraud would be strung up by there nethers.
  13. Think you might want to read the news regarding this, its being currently investigated for fraud after 77,000 signatures have been removed so far, and rightly so. Seems the remain camp have no morals as well as being sore loses, this petition should now be seen for what it is and be disregarded, David Cameron had always said no second referendum.
  14. People had one job to go out and vote on Thursday and they did its called democracy, now the remain camp are throwing there dummy's out of the buggy, its time to accept the decision and get on with it, its no surprise that most of the votes in the petition for referendum 2 are from around the London area and surrounding they have always been out of touch with the north and i doubt anything will change soon, i voted to leave and ill stick by my decision.
  15. Same as the rest really, fantastic acting left me wanting more but that's the general feeling across on twitter also, its what tv dramas should leave you feeling like they did a good job.
  16. Anyone on here managed to upgrade through the get windows 10 app yet, all i seem to be seeing is Thankyou for reserving your upgrade notify me when ready, so far ive got 20 trys in windows update, windows 10 home upgrade failed, error details 80240020, ive seen other people on various websites to try forcing the upgrade via the softwaredistribution folder and entering the command in cmd some are being successful and some are running into trouble, if i knew it worked 100% id try it
  17. The usual case with youths like this is that there parents arnt too clever either i know of a few in the area i live, the apple dosent fall far from the tree, as a parent myself i tend to go by old fashioned values and have always said that if i ever caught them doing wrong and i mean wrong i would march them down to the police station myself, that itself gives them a fright and does tend to keep them in line,
  18. nope that was just few months leading up to the election, its been pretty hard to avoid unless people have been living with paper bags over there head, its been on the bbc/itv news requesting that people should only go to hospital if only genuinely need it, as well as people dying in the back of ambulances due to the lack of room in the hospital or not enough crew to deal with the injured, need i go on ? its been well documented on tv up to the election the state of the nhs which includes doctors surgery's.
  19. Funny i don't have much confidence, in an ever increasing ageing population all i see is more of the same, doctors appointments nearly imposable to make and more people taking to going to the hospital because they cant get to see a gp the conservative government prior to the general election did nothing to prevent this and now there still in power i see more of the same, more reduction when it needs money and investment, and i know its not there to be given due to the austerity but i bet those mp are still getting a fair screw in there pay packets.
  20. You quite clearly missed one 5 more years of destroying public services (NHS/Police/Fire) etc
  21. Ty for your input guys, ive gotten him an appointment at northern avenue pdsa Wednesday afternoon nothing sooner even though i explained the circumstance as for the emergency numbers those are only ok if you either can drive or know someone that can drive, unfortunately i cant drive and dont know of anyone in a stones through distance to have taken us there, Thanks again all
  22. Hi all Im going to have to get my dog to the vets tommorow (monday) at the pdsa northern avenue branch, Ive missed placed the direct phone number to make appointments and given the weekend there not open so im trying to save a bit of time instead of ringing the main 0800 number in the morning as it is quite urgent, looks to me that my dog has had an ulcer pop on his side and other than salt water bathe it nothing i can do till tommorow, would be much appreciated if anyone knows there direct telephone number to let me know by posting it in this thread Thanks
  23. Makes no difference which party get in this may they all talk the talk but when it comes to it deliver nothing but false promises, there all overpaid corrupt idiots that have no idea how this country works.
  24. in my opinion when i was in my teens around 30 years ago Sheffield was really something to be proud of we had decent Christmas lights and such is through decline we lose more and more each year, the people are not the same nor do we have any care to our neighbours any more but im sure that's not confined to the likes of sheffield it happens everywhere, Sheffield is slowly losing its identity if not totally lost it altogether as the poster above me has said any given successful to come out of here does right to move on and not come back, so in my opinion a **** hole, if i had the means and money id be out of here as well, if only to go to somewhere else maybe just for the views.
