  1. Recently quoted me 0.75% plus £300 upfront for marketing etc
  2. Would recommend Katie Patmore - Millhouses Dog Training Club. Both my dogs went there, and the older one still goes because he likes it so much - more like Activity Club than training, once they get the basics.
  3. Pops supermarket on Sheldon Road S7, just at the crossroads with Nether Edge Road. Looks fairly ordinary but stocks all manner of lovely things, including fresh curry leaves
  4. I first tried the Halti, but as others have said, found it rode up under my dog's eyes. Then we went on to the Gentle Leader, which was way more effective and more comfortable; although he was still able to pull a little but I was easily able to maintain control. He contrived to lose it while we were on holiday, though... Eventually, after seeing other dog walkers using harnesses and asking about them, I decided to give one a try and that cured him instantly! I had been concerned that a harness would enable him to pull with all the strength in his chest and shoulders and make matters worse, but for my dog at least, a padded body harness did the trick.
  5. Another recommendation for Foot Heaven on Eccy Road from me
  6. Shipstone Real Oak Floors on Sharrowvale Road (do other kind of wood, too)
  7. Unfortunately I'm on a short course starting on Wednesday nights till the end of the year! Ordinarily it would have meant I'd miss the December meeting, but it means I'm also unable to do the rescheduled November one. I'll keep an eye on the thread and see you again in the new year
  8. The buddhist centre at Hunters Bar does a nice Monday night class - no need to book, just turn up
  9. I have a window cleaner! I'm S7/S11. He's a water-fed pole sort of operation, rather than a ladder and bucket man! PM me if you want his details
  10. Depending on how much we have to say about the book, we generally break up around 9-9.30
  11. They have asked for donations of wood or dry garden prunings - take it to the park from 10 on Saturday
  12. I'm sorry that we all let you down last time, but I definitely plan to be there on November 7th. Look forward to discussing the Psychopath Test! @Jennie2102 please do come along, it's always good to see new faces
  13. Oh no! Hope you're better soon - a couple of people at work have it too! Really very sorry, because I'm also having to miss tonight. Pity, as I enjoyed the book. I am sure that my absence will not badly dent the team's chances in the quiz (note neither Grandiose sense of self-worth (Item 2) nor Lack of remorse or guilt (Item 6)...
  14. http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1039823 No idea why the earlier link wasn't working - this one seems to work
  15. I think that's a great idea. We could even discuss the book in the bar at the Showroom!
  16. Of course. We're all blathering on over here now: http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/show....php?t=1039823 So long as you've read the book for discussion, you are most welcome anytime. On September 19th we'll be talking about What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver
  17. Great idea http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1039823
  18. The Red Lion book group meets about once a month at 7.30pm, actual dates agreed between whoever’s at the previous meeting! On September 19th we’ll be meeting to discuss What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver. October’s book will be The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. We’re (currently) a fairly small group, but friendly, and new members are very welcome to join us at any time. Feel free to post here or pm for any further information Our other recent reads: Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe The Accidental by Ali Smith The Somnambulist by Essie Fox War Horse by Michael Morpurgo Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene Jazz by Toni Morrison Dubliners by James Joyce The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing Florence and Giles by John Harding (Extract of) Samuel Pepys’ Diary
  19. And I'm sorry I won't be there, either, for the simple reason that I haven't read the book! It's been sitting on my shelf for the last 6 weeks or so; I was thinking it was only slim so I'd have time to read it, but I have failed!! See you in September (I'm away 12th Sep).
  20. Same here. I called them and they apologised for being late with the leaflet, which has just arrived to tell me that I should have put my recycling out this morning! If you call them they will put it down as a 'missed collection' and come back for it, so you don't have to wait another fortnight.
  21. Using a 'numbing' product might give you unrealistic expectations about how much, or how little, it will hurt. Which might make the actual pain feel worse... I had my ribs tattooed, and whilst it was about the most difficult tattoo I've had, I completed the work over a couple of sittings, and survived perfectly well. If you're 'only' going for back and shoulders it won't be anything like so bad
  22. The next meeting will be on Wednesday August 15th at 7.30, when we will be discussing Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. It would be great to have some new members (not that there's anything wrong with the ones we've got!). If you need any more information or encouragement, feel free to pm me.
  23. We will meet next on July 18th at 7.30 to talk about Ali Smith's The Accidental. New members are welcomed, encouraged even! Don't be shy! After that we'll be reading Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.
  24. Also bear in mind that the recommendation might vary according to the style of tattoo - someone might recommend an artist who did a really nice traditional Japanese piece, but they might not necessarily be the right person to do a black & grey portrait etc...
