  1. My understanding is that the postman knocks on the potential recipient's door first. A card being left if no one is home.
  2. After closing for several months, I have only just found out today that the town centre store has reopened. While chatting with a member of staff today, she said, "a lot of people didn't realise that the store had reopened". I think the temporary closure was something to do with the lease. I like the town centre stores, no need to travel to the one at Parkgate now.
  3. I'm beginning to wonder if someone has messed up again, like they did with the ppe. Just been on tesco.com/pharmacy and it says: "Unfortunately, we are not currently taking bookings for our £9 Flu Service, due to very high levels of demand". I phoned a Tesco store and have been told there is currently a shortage. Marvelous. EDIT: Just phoned doc's surgery and they have confirmed there is a shortage of vaccines. Just got booked in at Morrisons pharmacy Parkgate late October, on the proviso the vaccine arrive by then. For others if it helps , they have some slots left at the time of posting this. 01709780363
  4. With the majority of them, I would say it is another example of 'instant gratification'. There are many examples of that in society these days. People are not prepared to wait or put the effort in.
  5. No not going on tape. Going on a CD if I establish which type of file is required for standard CD
  6. OP, I understand where you are coming from. Caring for another person is not easy. It is not easy on the mind. In fact it can make the carer ill. I feel it takes a special type of person to do that sort of job. I could not do it, some people can.
  7. Looks like the penny has finally dropped at the BBC.
  8. Some members of the public have had enough: https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1336083/BBC-news-latest-corporation-millions-licence-fee-payments-television-Netflix
  9. I have past this building on many occasions. It is located on the right hand side of the canal if facing the direction of Sheffield. Just before it is the slope to the bridge that leads to Meadowhall tram stop. It is also just beyond the Tinsley viaduct. There is no roof on it now. Difficult to say whether the roof was apex or flat. The style of the windows seem to be arch shape. Probably been derelict for quite some time-there is a tree growing out the top of the building. Anyone know the history of the brick building, and what it was orginally built for? https://ibb.co/PTsV0v0
  10. A gap in the market Kevvy for someone to start up and fill possibly?
  11. I also think Northern power tools may have closed. Their phone No is a dead line. I need a bearing replacing on an electric jigsaw.
  12. Other than Northern power tools in Sheffield, does anyone know of any other place locally?
  13. I am assuming pharmacies make a profit already. Otherwise they would have been charging years ago for delivering. I am wondering what has changed to prompt this idea.
  14. @the_bloke I will try to explain another way. All the music I play on the pc and smart phone are Mp3 For all the years I have used 'clip grab', it provided a choice for the type of output file, or end result. Some of these files were Mp3, Mp4, Wmp audio etc. If there was a need to put one song on a blank recordable CD, it was possible to do so. This was simply selecting "audio file" as the output type. This is no longer an option. It only became an issue when a relative erased a song he had on a tape casette in error. He is "old school' No pc or mob phone etc, but he has a CD/DVD player. Originally I could have helped him out, but since 'clip grab' no longer provide that type of audio file I cannot help. Hope that makes sense now.
  15. Anyone still using Clip grab? I`ve always found it to be a good basic application for the odd Mp3 or wmp files. These output formats are still there. It is a long time since I have had the need for the output to be basic audio file. I needed the audio output format recently for one track only, and it appears that this option is no longer available. Anyone know of a fix? Thanks.
  16. Bob had intended going to this, and posted as such back in Feb, post No11. It seems like it is a place worth trying. I don't know if he ever made it . I suppose it can be a bit daunting regarding state of mind.
  17. We often hear about the amounts of plastic in the oceans. There is no excuse for it, in the same way there is no excuse for throwing litter down in the street.
  18. Apparently there is an increase in the number of drivers choosing to learn to drive in automatics. Figures from the DVSA show the number of tests in automatics has risen annually since 2012. They are stuck with buying only automatics, unless they take another test in a manual vehicle at some point.
  19. There may be cuts to the regular news bulletins over the next decade. Apparently due to more people watching online. The majority of elderly don't have ability to access online. This group will be affected most I think. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-53846414
  20. There is an article in the Guardian. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/environment/2020/jul/17/bearded-vulture-makes-rare-uk-visit-in-peak-district-national-park
  21. Can also recommend ASG too. 01142690030
  22. Hi Chez2, I'm not sure if I have understood. Are you meaning there is not much difference between a bulk bag of small horticultural grit & a bulk bag of pea gravel? Or, did you mean something else? Thanks.
