  1. we were thinking of Chelsea Park too, although after having done a recc. last night with the dog going up to Banner Cross and bac to Hunters Bar, we decided we might as well stand at the top of our own street (or the next one up), as we're only round the corner from the park. i'm in two minds - stay there or go down to the park, great atmosphere no doubt, but I think it will be heaving. (Too many trees blocking the view along Psalter Lane unless you want to risk the quarry, which I wouldnt advise). those apartments with the rooftop gardens would be an ideal spot.
  2. you might find this interesting - filmed in 2015 https://www.forces.net/news/tri-service/mi-amigo-10-heroes-who-fell-sky
  3. The girl who killed my brother (and was eventually found guilty of manslaughter, but even that's a joke when you consider that she will be out in just over 4 years and able to drive again) tried every trick in the book to blame her upbringing for why she did what she did. There is no excuse for it - you get in a car with the intent of causing mischief, mayhem, misery and you derserve everything you get. Sadly, it's never enough for the families who lose their loved ones because of a stupid, senseless act.
  4. Tuesday is next best chance on higher ground according to Yorkshire Netweather forum
  5. What makes this even more creepy is that the incident coincided with the recent BBC 1 Luther series, which featured a very nasty serial killer who also donned a mask and who murdered a woman on a bus.
  6. https://spacecentre.co.uk/blog-post/helen-sharman-britains-first-astronaut/ and should e had much more recognition. When Tim wotsisface wS all over the news a couple of years ago it was as if Helen had never been there first
  7. that brown bin is way to big for us - and yes, the paper bin should be the bigger one, especially now the collections have reduced. Cant wait to have festering food waste sitting in a container for weeks on end, especially during the warmer months (sigh). We already compost what we can anyway, mixed in with the rabbit hay and waste, but there's only so much compost you can make use of in a tiny terraced back garden!
  8. I won't entertain anyone trying to sell to me at the doorstep - the thieving scrotes at NPower sent someone some years ago who said they would deliver my energy services for cheaper and yes they did - but then they whopped the prices up to compensate for the fact that (guess what), theyd underestimated my monthly payment and the charge was more than my previous supplier. And separately (and we never got to the bottom of this), we had the supply of our electricity shifted to another supplier without our knowledge or permission - and neither of us had either looked into changing supplier or had a conversation with anyone about switching suppliers because we were very happy with the current provider... it was a nightmare getting it switched back again and the new supplier would not tell me who had changed us over - but they mustve provided a code of some sort to do so. All very suspicious.
  9. hmmm not sure how accurate this is, but i found https://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrJQ6DvQxJcbFMAHCVLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTByZTJwYXBkBGNvbG8DaXIyBHBvcwM5BHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--/RV=2/RE=1544729711/RO=10/RU=http%3a%2f%2fwww.welcometosheffield.co.uk%2fcontent%2ffiles%2f1281%2f/RK=2/RS=2TvRodJBIH3FKv23mo0ikv2eP.I- which says the steel in The Cutting Edge sculpture is 'Sheffield Steel'... no definition of what 'Sheffield' steel is, mind you,
  10. The girl who was found guilty of deliberately driving her vehicle into my brothers in an attempt to kill herself was found guilty of manslaughter
  11. https://news.sky.com/story/recycling-options-dwindle-for-councils-hit-by-china-ban-11529147 you'd think we could come up with a more practixcal way of re-using plastic
  12. Please let us know how you get on with the little masters, good to put business to somewhere local
  13. You could try cutting through tin foil or sand paper that’s a trick to sharpen standard scissors, I’ve tried it with my old pinking shears too
