  1. I've seen Muntjac deer near the canal basins and I'm told they're present in Beeley wood.
  2. Where I grew up in the north east we had a field behind our house which served as our football pitch. The field was shared with some horses and sometimes a herd of young bullocks. Many a game was abandoned when they would stampede. At the far end of the field was a beck with a tarzan swing over it and where we'd catch sticklebacks. Our road was a round cul de sac which was good for bike racing. None of the houses had driveways and with not many cars we played kerby. Two people on opposite pavements aiming to hit the far kerb with a football. On hitting the kerb, if the ball hit the road before the thrower caught it scored 1 point, 2 points for a two handed catch and 3 for a one handed catch. There was a small green at the end of the road which was our marbles pitch. Happy days.
  3. I fished Lowfield Lakes at Bolton on Dearne yesterday. There are three ponds on site, all containing carp but also a good head of silvers. Matches are held but one pond is always left for pleasure anglers. Day tickets are &6 but half price on Mondays.
  4. I saw a group of deer in Beeley wood recently whilst on an early morning walk with my dog. It's not the first time i've seen them but it's not a regular occurrence.
  5. If Pulis does go as expected what are the chances of Tony Mowbray going back to the Boro? He's done a decent job at Blackburn the last couple of years.
  6. I do fancy being a part time bailiff when I retire but unfortunately that won't be for a couple of years.
  7. Pulis is out of contract at the end the season and I can't see him getting it renewed. My brother in law and nephews are Boro fans and they can't wait for him to go as the football this season has been abysmal.
  8. Switching to a meter three years ago has nearly halved my water bill which was based on the rateable value of the house. I now pay just over thirty pounds a month whereas the old payment would be well over six hundred. There are three adults living in the house.
  9. Lowood is a social club in Deepcar. I can only suggest you ring them and ask if there is a sea fishing club based there.
  10. Is Horseshoe still open? It's been quite a while since I fished it but I heard the owner wanted to retire and was going to put the fishery up for sale.
  11. I watched a bit of bully last night when I came in from work. Two Sheffield lads made the final winning some good prizes and a decent amount of cash. They didn't go for the star prize which was a skiing holiday. Jocky Wilson threw 340 in nine darts raising money for Sheffield Children's Hospital.
  12. Before Abbey took over the site it was a company called APW that made safes and cash machines. I worked there for a while prior to it closing down in approximately 2006.
  13. I liked the Rebus series. If you've read the books by Ian Rankin, Ken Stott was made for that part.
  14. Donachie joined Man City in the 70s. St. Petre is referring to the side that won the league in 1968 and the F.A cup the following season.
  15. I had mine at the N.G.H nearly two years ago and it went fine. I was on the waiting list and they had a cancellation so I got in at short notice. Take a book as I got there around 7 am and had the op in the afternoon.
