  1. It did ease off for a while but heavy rain and wind again. When I got up this morning my missus asked me if I was going fishing!
  2. I had the mesh repair. A work colleague is having his op next week and was asking me and others about it.
  3. I had the same operation three years ago and have had no issues whatsoever. After returning to work I had to take it easy at first with regards to manual lifting but now it's not a problem.
  4. It is open again but i've not been in yet. ( I've always preferred The Angel ).
  5. There are buzzards around the ponds I fish at Thurgoland and it's quite common to see a lone one being mobbed by crows. It's a different story when the buzzard's mate decides to join in though.
  6. Are you any relation to Gillian Simmonite who was there the same time as me ( 70-75)? I believe she went on to marry Simon Stainrod, the professional footballer.
  7. I used a rotovator to prepare my back garden for laying new turf. It was a doddle to do and left the soil really fine ready for raking level. I actually bought one for about &60 which was about the hire price. I've since done my son's garden with good results. I did it when the soil was dry though.
  8. There are plenty of small pike in the canal willing to take a lure. I'm not sure about the permit situation though, I believe British Waterways took over control a while ago. I used to fish around the basins but not been down for a couple of years.
  9. The missus and me will be watching the Niagara display from our back bedroom.
  10. As a youngster I enjoyed watching Catweazle. Robin's Nest wasn't a great comedy but the Irish waiter/pot washer delivered some good one liners. It also had the lovely Tessa Wyatt who was married to Tony Blackburn.
  11. I had the pleasure of seeing Ginger Baker play with Hawkwind in the early 80's. R.I.P I
  12. I work on Clubmill Rd which is part of Old Tup's old stomping ground. Not only has the foliage established itself, the wildlife is also doing well. We regularly see buzzards soaring above the factory along with kingfishers on the river. At the back of our department next to the railway embankment summer evenings are spent watching bats flying about. Our bird feeders attract Goldfinches, various species of Tit etc. There are a number of foxes around which feed on an abundance of rabbits and rats.
  13. I get a reminder together with a &10 eye test voucher every two years from Specsavers. I only need reading glasses and on my last test my prescription hadn't changed but I was asked if i'd like some new glasses. I politely refused as i'm happy with the ones i've got.
  14. Can anyone tell me the name of the port that Bob and Paul went sea fishing from in this week's programme please?
