    R.I.P Keith Flint (Prodigy)

    Sad news, Music for the Jilted Generation is one of my all time favourite albums. By all accounts he was a genuinely nice guy.

    Dickensian diseases on the rise

    I had TB in 2015 and was told this, I still have no idea how I caught it, I'd had the BCG jab at school along with everyone else.

    Prince Phils driving exploits.

    I'm wondering if he had to have the hour-long phone call to his insurers like the rest of us.

    The "I am currently reading" thread

    Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. Awful. A real disappointment after Gone Girl which I thought was pretty good. Before that, Educated by Tara Westover. The true story of the author's escape from her Mormon fundamentalist, survivalist family. Brutal but compelling.

    Christmas lights

    The house at the narrow end of Ashfurlong Road in Dore is eye-poppingly amazing and gets better every year.

    Jared Omara MP ..

    Hallam resident here. As I understand it there was a big swing to the Tories in the last election, but not big enough to get the Tory candidate in. It did however reduce the Lib Dem vote sufficiently to get Clegg out, the result was that Labour won. So basically Hallam voted Tory and got Labour.

    Random builders turning up at my house

    I woke up on Friday morning to find scaffolding going up on my house, they'd got about half way up the front elevation. Replacing the upstairs front bay window, apparently. First I'd heard of it. They removed the scaffolding and went away eventually but they took some persuading and kept referring to phones insisting it was the right address.

    Jared Omara MP ..

    Over here I didn't vote for him but when he won I thought fair do's and accepted him as my democratically elected MP. I don't feel that way any more, now I just wish he would stand down.

    Antique Valuation Needed

    Hanson's do free valuations at Abbeydale Picture House once a month, I don't know when the next one is but Google is your friend.

    Thailand Cave Rescue.

    Just heard it's now 4 out. This is wonderful news.

    Northern General TV

    I think quite a few elderly people would disagree with that. My late Dad would've loved to have been able to use his laptop for browsing and email during the 5 months he was in there.

    Where can I plant my conker trees?

    What a lovely idea. I was going to suggest my back garden I ran it past my husband and he vetoed it.
  13. I was at the Royal Opera House of all places last weekend and got chatting to a Canadian woman during the interval, when I said I lived in Sheffield the only thing she knew about the place was the tree saga.
  14. A company called Hoggs did ours a couple of years ago, we're very pleased with the result. http://www.hogggardens.co.uk/

    R.I.P. Philip Roth

    A true literary great. If you're not familiar with his work I suggest you start with his short novel Nemesis, his last published book and a fantastic example of a writer at the absolute top of his game.
