    Hi, Jean Poole was my mum. She passed away in June this year. Why are you looking for her?
  2. The worst holiday i've ever had was in Dacia in Corfu. The beach (?) consisted of nothing but pebbles and cigarette ends, the apartment (?) was situated in the middle of some fields, we were surrounded by chickens, cockerels, goats etc and there was no street lighting (luckily we had been advised to take a torch). We had to hire 2 fans so that we could breathe at night (we daren't leave the windows open cos of the mozzies), and i got bitten to death by the bloody things and ended up at the medical centre. Never ever again. Also, I'd just like to say that i love Malta and am thinking of going there again later this year.

    Three 3G down ?

    Same here in Mosborough, since 10pm last night. My daughter who lives in Stannington says hers is working ok. Ironic that as i'm typing this a 3 advert with 'the network built for the internet' is on tv
  4. The huge turbine at the B&Q distribution centre terrifies me, I have to put the sun visor down whenever i drive past so I can't see the big swishy arms! (going cold just talking about it)

    Plane round handsworth at night?

    Five pages of posts and I'm still no wiser as to what the plane was flying round for!! It stopped me from getting to sleep in Mosborough last night, and I've felt rubbish all day at work today, so will whoever it is please go and fly somewhere else tonight as I'm working tomorrow too.

    What have the condems done for you

    they have put up my retirement age twice which now means I can't retire until I'm 66 - it should have been 64 which was bad enough, but then they decided to up the retirement age early which means that I got clobbered twice.
  10. Just wanted to say a big 'thank you' to Avante Removals for an excellent job when we moved house last Friday - you guys were great and made a stressful day a lot easier. Cheers!

    Which Estate Agents should we use?

    To be honest we've had no problems with Haybrooks at Gleadless. We got a valuation from them which was what we were expecting, and they got us quite a few viewings within the first 2 days, and the house was sold within 5 days. They do seem to shift a lot of houses in our area.

    Free to good home

    You could hire them out as scarecrows - make a bit of money out of them both

    Solar Panel Megathread

    A couple who live near to us have just paid £12,000 to have solar panels installed. It's going to take a good few years before they start to make any profit from them

    Poor little fishes in Crystal Peaks

    Personally I can't think of anything worse than putting my feet in a tank full of fish - yuk, it makes me cringe!

    Memory test for you! GCE "O" Levels...

    Yes that is true, when I sat my 'O' Levels in 1970 they were indeed graded with numbers, as above. OMG, it was a long time ago!!
  18. Hi we have been looking at a house in the Westcroft Drive area and not knowing that district very well, are wondering what it is like as an area to live?

    Norton Anti-Virus was invented in Norton, Sheffield

    Google Maps thinks that everywhere in Sheffield is in Norton - oh no that's true!!
  20. My husband and I did it a few years ago. We were due to have a week in our caravan at Skegvegas and the weather was awful, so we had a look on teletext, phoned up and booked a week in Majorca, leaving the next day. We picked up our tickets at the airport and had a brill holiday with 90 degrees temp every day!

    Which dry complete dog food do you use?

    Our pooches have James Wellbeloved, another top quality dry complete dog food - costs around £7.50 - £8.00 per 2kg bag depending on where you get it from
  22. Don't forget matches to light your camping stove if its not got electronic ignition. We learned this the hard way!!
  23. I think they must be the same people who we saw at Rivelin Valley last weekend - but they were horizontal rather than vertical.
  24. Don't forget that the ruins of Sheffield Castle are underneath the market - maybe something to do with that?

    My rottie and shaun the sheep??

    Our Cairn Terrier is obsessed with the adverts on TV - he'll even come running in from the garden to watch them. He knows every advert that has a dog in it, and even growls at Churchill (oh yes!) Also since the Libyan saga started, he's decided that he doesn't like the foreign correspondents who report on it on the BBC, and he howls at them too. He's a strange animal!
