  1. Loved watching the first boat with the band playing full monty songs Many people were there all along the towpath and at the quays.
  2. Today there is a big celebration at the canal quayside base with 20 boats coming in with a band at 1:30 PM. All day further entertaining activities going on till tonight with a silent disco later on. It is to celebrate the 200 year Bday of the Sheffield canal. Have always liked a relaxing walk by the canal any time of year, it will be fun to see the party there today for a change. Busy day in Sheffield, and we are having great weather for it all.
  3. Many of these drawings are more writings with only a little scientific research sketch. I'm saying this jokingly, no need to react seriously.
  4. At the moment places like India are developing faster than GB. Having said this it was rather funny that India latest HS line opening the train had a collision with a cow. But that didn't stop them from reaching the destination.
  5. They have started to build the Mumbai to pune section. Your excuses why we should use an old fashioned system instead of really moving on are typical comical. Every train goes from point to point. Ps. They already have HS there.
  6. India seems to be more developed now and started a hyperloop line. HS2 is already out of date. It's better to cancel it and either work on improving existing systems or stop dragging and move on properly instead of always staying behind.
  7. That is fine the drawings are a great display of scientific development and some preparation sketches. Calling these drawings a great work of art can only be done by people who don't know the difference of art and science. Da vinci was a great artist but his finished complete artworks are not at the Millennium Gallery.
  8. Most of them drawings are more scientific than artistic. Did like seeing them but there are more written notes and measurements on them. There was this study sketch of a part of a painting he made later. No da Vinci paintings in there.
  9. That is £25.000 per charge point, not bad a domestic charge point costs less than £2000. These charge points are subsidised and council has to make sure the installer doesn't put that subsidy in its own pocket. Diesel will be finished this century no matter if that happens through a state of ignorance or through some wisdom insight.
  10. Talking and consulting doesn't make the air cleaner. Thinking about proposals only affects dreams, it doesn't change reality. Would I consult when crossing the road when a truck is on the way? If I think about someone proposing to have some fun. The only change is in the head, nothing really happened yet.

    Ecclesall Road in trouble

    Of course not. It has gotten a bit better over last fivteen years and there are many Chinese and middle Eastern people around to keep their places going. Twenty years ago it was very normal for me and a friend to be only customer in these weirdly named places. Ecclesall road will be fine with or without restaurants. It will move along with with the markets of what it needs today.

    Ecclesall Road in trouble

    I have lived here a long time and it is more often the places with very odd weird foreign names that have trouble to exist for longer.

    It's nothing new. Places have come and gone as long as I have been here. Best thing is to not choose a silly foreign name or it won't last.
