  1. Barrels of Moodshine from the Kelm Island Brewary and Jessica Alba.
  2. They should build eco-villages instead of building the sky scraper building that no one really wants. They knock down old building and build new ones and we loose our best structures. What gets me is Sheffield are building more office space, the fact is we have too much office space but its not updated and also it cost to much to rent or buy.
  3. Well that is true they don't waste enough to be a viable alternative to petrol or diesel. But it would be giving life to a product that is not usable anymore, surely that is a good thing?
  4. With the Diesel to petrol debate there is scientific proof that diesel is cleaner than petrol, for one thing it produces less CO2 gases than a petrol car. Take a look at these websites to find out: http://www.stealthtdi.com/Emissions.html http://www.nu-car.com/Diesel_Buyers_Guide/Diesel_benefits.aspx http://www.ace.mmu.ac.uk/eae/Air_Quality/Older/Cleaner_Fuels.html The thing about it is all fuels are getting cleaner so it really matter on how you use your car to which car you buy to be greener. There are always going to be for and against for which is the better fuel. But all in all the thing is, isn't it better to reduce emissions than produce more? As for bins, well in Rotherham we have two bins, a green one for garden and kitchen waste and a black bin for normal rubbish. We also have a blue box for tins and foil, glass bottles and thing, thin cardboard, and we have a blue bag for paper. I know I said 5 bins, they could be two bins and two boxes and a bag. There are always ways round things.
  5. The Bio Diesel would come from oil that fish and chip shops, takeaways and places like that. So it is been reused for something else not having to use good agricultural land to grow new crops. The thing is takeaway places waste oil, take a look at these websites: http://www.bbc.co.uk/insideout/london/series9/week_two.shtml http://www.familiesonline.co.uk/article/articleview/2855/1/52/
  6. I do believe Global Warming is an issue that the world is facing. The problem is we get govenments telling us there is global warming but are not putting as much money in as they should. It is all talking and no action. Ok so we are building wind terbines and eco housing. The problem is all the eco housing is been built down south and not up here. There is another thing that funding for eco projects or even recycling charities always gets stopped or not enough given. Its like they tell us to recycle but don't put provisions in to do it, yes ok we have green bins, blue boxs or bins to put recycling stuff in. But they onely take paper, plastic, thin cardbord and tin and foil, but no glass. At the end of the day recycling is down to money. More often than not it costs more to recycle than to prduce a new product. There is also the fact that recycling stuff gets contaminated so it can't be used and has to go to landfill. So I think we should have better recycling facilities and like a county wide recycling plants, for example south yorkshire having say 4 recycling plants one for paper and thin cardboard, one for glass, one for plastic and the other for tins, foil and drinks cans. Also us all have a 5 bin system for every house hold, there would be no excuses for mixing things up. With cars, I think people should traded there old pertol cars in for cleaner diesel ones so they could use diesel which is less polluting than petrol or use bio diesel.
  7. As we all know the government is starting a pay as you drive scheme on the most congrested roads to cut down the amout of people using them, get people onto public transport and the save the enviroment. There are a few ways they could help by saving the enviroment by giving people an incentive to buy greener cars or give people a tax break in setting up bio diesel pumps. If there are more bio diesel pumps around the country and it is cheap then most people with diesel cars will use them more. Has anyone got any other ideas or comments?
  8. Newquay is a cool place to go, your more than minutes away from attractions such as the Eden Project. To be honest its a good place to stay and surf. It has great sunsets to, Fisteral Beach is a great place to relax and enjoy. The best thing to do is base yourself in Newquay and travel to Places like St Ives or Lands End. Also a great tip is to try to get into a surfers hotel, which is cheaper than the major hotels. A cheap and chearful hotel would be The Chiffedean Hotel, great staff, great food and its family run to.
  9. I am a deaf person myself, so from my prospective there are two ways of answering this. It depends what you mean "Can deaf people hear themselves think?". Because I find there are two ways of hearing yourself think, one is talking to yourself and the other is talking in your mind, techniqually you are not talking. I believe we all hear ourselves think in our minds, its a bit like remembering things or having a creative idea. So in short deaf people and hearing people hear themselves think in the same way. Another point to everyone lip reads, we all did it when we where younger, its just that deaf people tend to be better at it because they combensate for their hearing loss.
  10. The thing that does get annoying in going to the supermarket is people who clutter up the middle of the isle. Something else that is worse if there is an offer in the paper or on an advertisement and your local supermarket does not do it, they always say "(this promotion is for bigger stores not ours)". I mean how frustating is that. The is one more that does annoy me and that is people standing at the top of the isles blocking the way for you to get down that isle. What does everyone think about the new F1 style shopping trollies Tesco are going to introduce? Personnally I think people will get frustated with them. You know something they are going to issue everyone with helmets.
  11. After reading The Da Vinci Code, which is a great book, same as Angels and Demonds both by Dan Brown. Then I was intreged about what I learnt so now I am reading The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail and there is evidence to support that J***s did exisit with other scriptures and scrolls other than the Gospils. The book is long but good, it is worth a read but at the end of the day everyone believes what they want, so at the end of the day it is up to the individual what they believe.
  12. When I was learning to drive I had a 2 hour session once a week which I found helped me. I feel if you have a hour session, it usually takes 10-15 mins to get to the destination where your going then it will be 30 mins to do the practice and then you have to go back home again. What you could try is to do two one hour sessions one week and the a two hour session the other. I am sure many driving instructors will accommodate that. at the end of the day it is how your daughter learns that will be the factor in deciding which way to go. I hope that helps.
  13. I don't think there will be ever a paperless world to be honest. Take business or a shop for that matter they all have to print a recept out which is paper. Even big businesses with the most flashy computer systems still have to have paper. The best way is to have better and more efficent recycling scemes that produce good quality printing paper and that more people recycle then there would be not much of a problem. The problem is with new technology is if you have not got the money then you can not use it or sometimes they make it too complecated to use. To make things more viable and worthwhile. You have to make it affordable for everyone and make things simpler for people to do.
  14. Well from what I can remember it was just off Leopold Street, its called something like Leopold Lane. Anyway it was down in the basement where you got all your clothes from. An interesting fact is it was the same building as they used to do hearing tests for children, I remember going every year for one. You know something its going to be turned into flats and accommodation, now that is just spooky.
  15. Anything with Ronnie barker in was great. Porgage was good but I think I spelt that wrong. Last of the Summer Wine is and still is the best. Only Fools and Houses well that goes without saying, great script and wonderful actors and actresses.
  16. If I remember correctly the song went, My names James do de do, James the cat, I have fame do dee doo de do, money and all that, now I'am here, big and black, chasing birds and butterflies, James the Cat. I can also remember the Flumps, Magic Roundabout, the Hurbs (Parsley the Lion, Dillan the Dog, Bayleave the Gardener, Rosamy, Bazzle), Trupton, Rainbow (Zippy, George and Bungle, Matthew, Rod, Jane and Freddy), Willow the Whisp ( Evil Edan the TV), Rent-a-ghost (Timathy Claypole and Miss Popoff (Ardiay Roberts)), Button Moon, Fargel Rock, Camolwick Green (Here is a box, wound up and ready to play), Finger Mouse, Danger Mouse (Penfold (David Jayson - Del Boy), Danger Mouse, Kernal K and Barron Zaceria Greenback), Count Duckular, Puddle Lane, The Wombells, Ivor the Engine, Postman Pat and Bertha. Those where happy days
  17. I started Birley in 1989 and finished it in 1993, well 4 years was enough. Not the greatest time by any means. Well I can remember Mr Lord, had him every year for Maths a really great teacher. Mr Goddard was a cool guy, I am surprised I liked a Head Teacher. I bet everyone remembers Mr Tilsley (History), a very strict person but knew his history. For scients it was Mr Godison. One of the best teachers was the art teacher Mr Irerdale or is that how you spell it. All I know is when I was there he had black bushy hair and was a very supportive teacher. I had Miss McPherson for my tutor. Can anyone remember Mr Day? I swear Miss Jackson was in the army before she was a teacher. Now the French Teachers name I can't for the life of me think of, I know she was a thin woman with stern features and silvery grey hair. Its funny how things come back to you.
  18. Nothing ever stays the same, I guess that is progress for you. I can remember waiting in the tunnel to watch He-Man the movie at the ABC Cinema. So that shows the ABC was still there in the 80's.
  19. We got the clothing grant with the daft parkers, but they are coming back in fashion can you believe. I know I used to get all my school gear with it, even those black plimsouls.
  20. http://www.rnid.org.uk/information_resources/hearing_aids/getting_nhs_hearing_aids/types_of_nhs_hearing_aids/ This is useful information on different Hearing Aids, NHS or Private ones
  21. To answer your questions, when I was younger my moulds for my hearing aids hurt me, I used vasalean (don't know about the spelling). I have the NHS Digital Hearing Aids, the have a mould which is shaped with the impression of your ears. The Hearing Aid itself is outside connected to the mould via a plastic tube. Inner Hearing Aids are privately brought ones and they cost alot.
  22. Does anyone know anything about Hatfields Steel that used to stand on the sight of where Meadow Hall is now. I have been trying to find some information about it because my Grandad worked there and I just wanted to know exactly where it was and when it finished trading, also if there are any books on the subject?
  23. The best school teachers I had where: Charnock Hall Middle School - Mr Hays (Music Teacher), Miss Turner (Arts Teacher) Birley Comp - Mr Lord (Maths) All these people have had an impact on my life, but I guess all good teachers do.
  24. Well in 1983 - 1987, Charnock Hall Seconary School as it was known used to have and still do today I believe Brindley (Blue), Chantary (Red), Hardwick (Green) and Nightingal (Yellow). Did everyone get house points in there schools?
  25. When I was a child, I remember my mum and dad taking me into Redgates at Christmas, the groto used to be wonderful and so magical. It was like every childs dream to go in Redgates. I can even remember my dad buying me my first train set from Redgates.
