  1. it could be either, memory is failing a bit now. Apologies, I wasn't thinking. Please delete if not appropriate.
  2. Long shot, but I'm wondering if anyone remembers Sheila? She lived on Clun Rd early 60s. We were at Grange Grammar School together but sadly lost touch when we left. I often think of her and would love to know how she is.
  3. I rarely drop in these days so I am slow to hear about PT's health. I would like to wish her all the best. Her posts were always interesting, and I hope to see many more in the future.
  4. Thanks DeZeus, I 've only just seen your reply. I am able to watch youtube and other videos. As the funeral is now over it is no longer an issue. Thanks for your interest and help.
  5. Thanks for replying. The site has a short test so we can check sound and vision is working before the day. It is this that just hangs, getting nowhere. Other relatives have been successful but they all seem to be on ipads which I don't have. The link is contained in an email sent to everyone.
  6. Please be gentle, I am not techsavvy. The funeral of a relative is on 3 April and I have been sent a link to view it. There is a test to check it is working but all I keep getting is a revolving circle , it just won't open. I am hoping someone can offer some guidance. I have Win7 and use Google and Firefox. I have tried on both with no luck, I have cleared cookies etc and closed down and restarted but nothing helps. Is there anything else I can try that is simple for this old woman? I'll be really sad if I can't partake in the proceedings, albeit remotely.
  7. Nobody know anything at all?
  8. Has anyone ever heard of St Michaels Church City Rd Sheffield? I have seen a postcard of a photo of a church so labelled, but can't find anything about it or where it was on City Rd. Someone suggested it might be St Aidens as it looks similar, but I can't find anything about a name change.
  9. Would they be happy to lose the income they get under the Barnett formula I wonder?
  10. It seems to me that there is a much deeper issue behind much of the increase in homelessness, particularly amongst the younger people. Why are there so many fractured families now? I am lucky to be a part of a very close extended family and it really pains me to hear about youngsters leaving or being forced out of the family circle. I think this is where there needs to be action (though I don't know what) to prevent family breakups. It can't all be laid at (any) government's door, people themselves must change.
  11. I can't see how Scotland would be better off independent from the rest of the UK. They would presumably lose the income from the Barnett formula. How would they fund free uni tuition, prescriptions etc? Would they expect the EU to step in?
  12. Contact Amazon. They should send you labels to return it free. Do not hand the parcel to anyone at the door.
  13. I am a leaseholder in a block of 9 flats. Last year there was mice infestation in several flats, including mine. The council put poison down free of charge. That actually didn't work, but I caught several in traps. I found where I thought they were getting in, blocked the hole in the skirting board with a brillo pad and saw no more mice.

    I've also discovered a possible alternative. I hadn't known, but Boots do a perfume free detergent as wel. So one way or another I am sure to get something tomorrow. Thanks again.

    Thanks so much, I will get down there tomorrow, and also check out ebay.

    Unfortunately that is for online orders, I have tried ordering there but it was £7 delivery for a minimum £40 order. Tesco used to have it at the Spital Hill shop but no longer. Sainsburys in High St didn't have it.
  17. Can anyone help please. I am looking for any shop in Sheffield that definitely sells Surcare detergent, powder or liquid. I am not interested in buying online, only locally please. I have quite severe eczema and this is one of the very few soap powders that don't have perfume as an ingredient. Thanks for any help offered.
  18. Thanks very much, we have made contact now.
  19. Does anyone know if Simon of STR Services is still running his computer repair business please?
  20. Thank you all for your replies. It is now June and the repair has still not been done. I will be approaching one of the local councillors again.
