  1. Who is behind running this service? Sheffield use to have two regular Sheffield corporation buses to Manchester. One over Woodhead and one over the Snake.
  2. Surely they are not having public firework displays? Bonfire night ... Its about time it was stopped anyway ... ?
  3. What happens if its raining? Sat in the car with demister on and the wipers going full tilt. it just doesn't work in this climate to be honest?
  4. Very sad news indeed, my sympathy to the family in this difficult time.
  5. What on earth is a 4d numberplate?
  6. I still have a Levi Jacket I bought from there in the late 70's. I knew a lady who worked in there, I think Kay was her name? A relation of hers had the Murco garage at the back of the Penny Farthing
  7. Buy your watch batteries online, Ebay. The poundshop batteries I wouldn't recommend, go for Renata, Duracell, Varta etc, silver oxide. under £2 most of them
  8. In my experience stay well away from any leasehold property, no matter whether there is 800 years left on the lease.
  9. Anybody remember the Whetstone on Cumberland Way?
  10. I wandered lonely as a cloud Two metres from the madding crowd When all at once my name was called To enter Tesco’s hallowed hall. This was the pensioners’ special hour. I’d gone to get a bag of flour. But I forgot, when through the door, What I had gone to Tesco for. The Tesco staff are extra kind. I told them it had slipped my mind. They asked what else I had forgot They clearly thought I’d lost the plot. I phoned my wife again to ask. She reminded me of this special task: “I need some flour to bake a cake with all that cream you made me take.” “Yes I recall” I had to lie. I dared not ask what flower to buy But then I saw them next the tills a bunch of golden daffodils!
  11. Brilliant!! Couldn't they let them run up a tab and pay at the end, ha, ha!!!
  12. A casualty of these times I'm afraid. We are losing 2 well established pubs in Minehead. The free trade I reckon will pull through, but the pub co establishments have had ongoing rent, business rates etc to pay since March!
  13. And so it begins! Just to let you know these phone calls are going round. ‘Good morning, I'm calling from the NHS track and trace service. According to our system, you are likely to have been in close proximity to someone who has tested postive for COVID-19. This means that you now need to self-isolate for 7 days and take a COVID-19 test.' 'OK. Can you tell me who that person was?' 'I'm not able to tell you that. That is confidential information.' 'Right. Um... so ....' 'But you do need to be tested within the next 72 hours. So can I just get the best mailing address so that we can send a kit to you?' 'Ok (gives address)' 'Thank you - and I just need to take a payment card so that we can finalise this and send the kit to you.' 'Sorry - a payment card? I though this was all free?' 'No - I'm afraid not. There is a one-off fee of £50 for the kit, and test results. Could you read off the long card number for me, please, when you're ready.' 'No - that's not right. This is part of the NHS so there's no charge.' 'I'm afraid there is. Can you give me the card number please - this is very important, and there are penalties for not complying.' Puts phone down. This is how scammers work. And vulnerable people will fall for it. Don't fall for it...! COPY and PASTE
