    Israel Grayson - descendants ?

    I will check with my sister, she carried on my research and has a much more extensive tree than I had. I don't know how much she looked at the Graysons though. Richard
  2. We have a room free in our building. It's available for a band to have 24/7 access. It's located in Attercliffe, is a large room, has a PA and is clean and dry. There is secure parking in the yard, which can be locked off by the big gates, a loo and a kitchen. Message me if interested and I can fill in more details. Richard

    Blades v leeds

    Just seen this match is listed on the BBC red button "live" listing, but it says "action from todays championship" but from 14.30pm. Is this delayed pictures? Or what?

    Blades v leeds

    My Dad took me to Elland Road in the early 70s, the Leeds team had 10 or 11 internationals... and they kicked us to bits, singularly the dirtiest, mardyest, nastiest set of players I ever saw. Leeds won 1-0. Hated them ever since.

    Sheffield University gigs

    I have seen smaller bands play in "Bar-one" downstairs, and also larger touring bands in what used to be the "Lower Refectory", this was the lower part of the union building that was perpendicular to Western Bank towards the Childrens Hosp end of the original buildings.

    Supertram future- consultation

    I know for certain that whoever planned the supertram routes did not understand the traffic flow in my area. We were told that the tram route along Ridgeway Road "would greatly alleviate the traffic and pollution on that stretch of the ringroad". The locals (that included myself) undertook a survey of the traffic on Ridgeway Road, at Manor Top by asking each of 3 cars at the lights, when the lights were on red, where they were coming from and going to. At Manor Top, the vast majority of traffic was headed across the junction and down Prince of Wales Road. The traffic heading into town was going up Mansfield Road and down City Road, likewise at Townend the traffic headed into town was going across and down Gleadless Road. The tram did absolutely nothing to alleviate traffic along Ridgeway Road. That tells me 2 things: 1 The Planners knew sod all 2 They ignored local information more likely: 3 both the above Somebody will tell me I am wrong no doubt.

    Supertram future- consultation

    Supertram was always a massive missed opportunity. What they should have done is work out where the traffic flow goes, where the people who are coming into and out of Sheffield are coming from and make the Tram serve those routes... and before anyone says that is what they did... I lived on the tram route, it went past my drive, I was involved with the "consultation" at the time... sod all notice they took. Maybe 1: a line all the way to Chesterfield/Dronfield by connecting Herdings Spur (waste of time that was) along all that open land along the border with Derbyshire. 2: massive park/ride at jn33 (lots of open land) and a line into the City from there.. not a park and ride located almost in the middle (pointless that is), serves Rotherham/Doncaster and traffic from the M1 instead of the mess of half baked routes and spurs we got

    Millwall v Blades.

    The only question to ask is "would that be a foul anywhere else on the pitch?".. if that's a yes.. and in the case of the Duffy foul it can be no other answer cos the guy just barged him off the ball, intentionally or otherwise.. then it's a penalty...

    Supertram future- consultation

    Well they never took a blind bit of notice of anyones opinion when they built the thing in the first place. I fully expect them to have already made their decision.

    Aston villa v sheffield wednesday

    Villa gambling big, as have a lot of championship teams, unfortunately 7 (or more) into 3 won't go and the longer they go unpromoted the more league 1 beckons. Good win for Weds tho, even tho it pains me to say.

    Tomato growing this year

    I have all "Moneymaker" in the garden, suffered massively last year with the very wet autumn and a lot of blight, this year staked them up a lot and took off many of the lower leaves to try and keep the lower parts dry after rain. Got a decent crop and they are just starting to ripen.
  14. what? the SCC propaganda machine at work? Surely not...
  15. .. and how much money would have not been spent (saved) if SCC had not embarked on this ludicrous path in the first place?
