  1. Hello, put them to auction is one option but unless they are mint and boxed do not expect to get much for them well worn and played with " Dinky or Matchbox " toy's are worth a lot lot less, another option is take them to a toy fair and sell them as seperate item's the dealers at toy fairs will give the best deal and you can compare yours with what's being sold to get an idea what they might be worth but remember there is a buying and a selling price dealers will buy from you as with an auction they will go as a job lot, but saying that you need to do your research first, Elsecar Heritage Center Barnsley 29 October there is a toy's fair starts at 6pm till 9pm easy to get too plenty of parking go along and look before you decide don't rush into a sale.
  2. Recomend Wincobank Windows, John and Richard no more to say they are good, look at their web page for details.
  3. Right, well if he is being sarcastic at least give the reasons why.
  4. What's this suppose to be !!!!!!!
  5. No you can not dress as you want in Offices, Shop's or factorys, some yes but not all and Adult life in a working enviroment is not all sun shine and roses don't miss lead children into thinking that they can do what they want in the work place or they are in for a nasty shock.
  6. I’m 67 my experience not pulling punch’s. Every man should know what your Prostrate does it is a stop tap for peeing it produces fluid for your reproductive system so after feeling tired with leg and lower back ache and a sex life that was excruciatingly painful because my Prostrate was killing me I had the finger test, which is not half as bad as people make out, after a biopsy, again not as bad as you think, I was diagnose at the Hallamshire Urology with Prostrate cancer in November 2012 opperated on in January 2013 not really given a choice on the scale of 1 good and 10 bad I was 9 they had me in as quick as that before it spread to my Lymph glands then the rest of me, five hours in surgery, if not there was a good chance I would have been dead in five years may be less. Down side it took six months to recover before going back to work and because they took away my Lymph glands from there I developed lymphedema, the build-up of waste fluid which the body normally gets rid of, swelling in my legs but over the years this has settled down now they just ache after walking for long periods. I went back for six weeks of Radio therapy at Weston Park just as a precaution to mop up anything missed I now have a PSA level of 0.0003 which is good and six monthly check up’s, the only really down side is they took away muscles that give you an erection or anything to get hold of when going for a pee, can be messy if you’re not quick enough and when you need to go you need to go because the stop tap is not there and hence the sex life is practically none existent but they do have a department to help with that but what’s the worst no sex life or not being here for your family when they need you. If your dough- full about what to do go and talk to the Macmillan nurses they are very good kind and listen and don’t be a whoose about the finger test because you think it will not happen to me.
  7. Personally we wash plastic milk bottles and crush them leave the tops on reason they do re-inflate a bit so it keeps a vacuum in the bottle pour in a least one bottle of diluted Jay’s Fluid kill’s any smell from any fluid that ends up in the bottom of the bin it all goes into the back of the lorry so make’s that smell nice too do the same with the black bin, pity you cannot still get SAN ISAL anymore that was an excellent disinfectant kills any odor.

  9. My wife was at work today at Meadow Hell from 10am till 2pm works next to M&S no alarms no evacuation heard nothing M&S would have been the first to close down so what was it if any thing ? There is work going on in M&S car park down stairs was it a siren in there it does echo a bit in there ?
  10. Back in the 50/60's coach trips or by car day outings to Bridlington. Songs like, The Runaway Train, The Hippopotamus Song Mud Mud Glorious Mud, A Windmill In Old Amsterdam, Rag Time Cowboy Joe, Itsy Bitsy Teenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Tulips From Amsterdam, Thumbelina, Soldier Will You Marry Me, Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf, Donald Where’s Your Troosers, Wonderful Wonderful Copenhagen,The Ugly Duckling and then they passed the cap round for a collection for the coach driver, I wonder what today’s generation would sing. And my favourite a twist on Ten Green Bottle’s Ten sticks of dynamite sitting on a wall Ten sticks of dynamite sitting on a wall If one stick of dynamite should accidently fall There would be no sticks of dynamite And no b----y wall.
  11. The best for me best stocked British Heart Foundation Barnsley and Sheffield town center the friendliest Blue Bell Wood Chapeltown the worst St Luke's Chapeltown where they cannot be bothered to turn the CD's all the same way round but have time to talk we know they are volunteers but it would help if they did it.
  12. You never seem to see the old fashioned Cobblers shop's on the high streets these day's they must be a dieing breed is leather working still taught as a trade or is it an apprenticeship just taught in costly shoe making shop's in London, there was a very good one in Wombwell in the 50's /60's Mr Moulds near the railway station for those who may remember him a very good artist as well he repaired my school satchel a few times, there is a good one in Mexbrough called Micks he has good reviews but if you want one thats easy to get too then Timpson's in Meadow Hall I was looking for some leather working thread or waxed thread that would not perish asked on the off chance if they sold it and was told they do use it for bag repair and shoe stitching so you could try there hope it helps.
  13. Sorry swap what with one of the others. I have just read, unplug the arial retune the TV it finds no channels turn the TV off then on again plug in the arial and retune this sets the TV back to factory setting with a clear memory. We pick up Emley Moor. Done this we had 76 channels now we have 150 channels and low and behold no 23 is back, apparently tuning with out an arial does clear or reset it's memory. So thanks for the surgestions, it seem's to have worked.
  14. Yes, this only happend when we were prompted to retune for a different channel change, so I did all the T.V.'s and this one lost channel 23.
  15. We have three Sony Televisions all new’ish all receiving channels through free view all fed from the same aerial, they have been retuned when prompted and again digitally just to make sure but one will still not receive channel 23, a crafting channel, where the others will, followed all retuning instructions but still no channel 23 on this particular T.V. any ideas please.
