  1. Yes you can go that way. Off Park Square, you turn onto Broad Street West, up to the bottom of Dixon Lane where you go left again onto Shude Hill past the Ibis and under the bridge when it then becomes Pond Street. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.3830519,-1.4625636,19z

    Bill Cosby, sexual predator.

    Not really sure about starting a new thread, but Bill Cosby's just got 10 years!

    £8,000 a month care home fees.

    I would assume that she had reached the point of needing a level of care that he was unable to provide on his own and they could only afford to pay for residential care by selling up. The option that would appear to have been impractical, could have been to use the proceeds of sale to provide accommodation with one of the children (extension, new house etc.). It is interesting that, as a society, we seem more and more to be reluctant to expect any care from our offspring.

    They have already sold and are living in the care home of their choice. At their own expense.

    Mr Trump - All discussion here

    Phoenix and Florida are still increasing in population. Phoenix was 2nd in the list of fastest growing cities last year. Phoenix does not have the water supplies to sustain these levels of growth and will have serious issues. Population increase in Florida is pushing more and more development onto the lower-lying coastal areas that are prone to flooding. Those with the money buy on higher ground, but we can see similar patterns in the UK. Even here in Sheffield people will tell you that some new developments will flood.

    If I've read it correctly, it is all about what might happen when their funds reach the threshold. Currently, they are self-financing. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/couple-who-been-together-70-15182831

    Figures suggest that the fees at this care home are nearly double the national average. The reported council offered contribution in this case appears to be around the national average. Should this couple be looking at cheaper alternatives?

    One for the legal eagles

    The marriage is still legal, but making a false declaration to the registrar is an offence under the Perjury Act.

    New Statesman article

    Totley puts a spanner in the accuracy of the clean split.
  13. Someone quoted the Highway Code to suggest that it proved that filtering between cars and the kerb is legal. It doesn't and that is what I am saying. It is only an interpretation. Not proof. Slower speeds are safer. What is being said is that there are situations, usually to do with speed and nippiness of the cyclist, when a driver can check, see it is clear and then manoeuvre to find that there is now a cyclist hanging on his door handle.
  14. Nothing in the highway code says that filtering by cyclists alongside a car that is occupying a lane is legal. What it does do is advise drivers to watch out for this hazardous activity.
