  1. He got man of the match against Leicester today. I think he’s kept a clean sheet for virtually every Arsenal game he’s been in.
  2. For the first time in a few years I bought a Sunday newspaper this morning. The Sunday Times no less. I needed a non tabloid paper for masking a room whilst decorating. However after getting over the £3 charge I thought I’d read it before using it for masking. United…..22 words in the Championship Round-Up. It mentions the Stoke scorer but no mention of United’s scorers! Wednesday…..diddly squat in the League One Round Up
  3. 100 years later they were still dazzled. In particular John Hope. He went up for a straightforward high ball and it went straight through his hands. It was an awful evening, one I try and forget. I can ‘t remember the score or the opposition. No doubt some kind soul will resurrect the misery….
  4. Nottingham only have Nottingham Forest in the top leagues at the moment. Would love to see Notts County regain league status ASAP.
  5. The point about geographical location attracting footballers reminded me that when Sunderland were a premiership club that they seriously considered having a training ground in London.
  6. Do we really want to be saved by an investment of over £300 million to enable us to compete at the very top, as per Newcastle? Having said that, Leicester City through superb management, both on and off the field, have proven that it can be done . They still spend a few quid though. I’d be more than happy if both Sheffield clubs could at least be together in the Championship and we can have a couple of derbies each season. That would at least get us back to the banter, the hurt of losing, or the sheer joy of beating the enemy. At least we are one of, I think, six cities that have two football league clubs. Good post Crookesey
  7. We had pomfret in a curry in India a couple of years ago. It was excellent and well worth trying if you can get the fish.
  8. Must admit I remember Sutherlands Spreads from Alistair Sutherland winning the 1986 British Rally Championship in his 3litre Metro 6R4. What a car! After Sutherlands Spreads, he set up Granny Mary’s. As per the name of the OP.
  9. That’s just the feedback I was hoping for...thanks. Looks like you got a bargain at £60. Dry soil....wonder when we’ll get that.
  10. We are looking to make good the overgrown perimeter of our village hall car park. I know that it’s not the best time of year for weed killer or in fact doing anything in the current very wet conditions. I could do with some feedback from anyone that has used a rotavator. Did you hire, was it easy to use and basically, did it do the job? Any feedback would be very much appreciated. Many thanks.
  11. I came across this product whilst wandering round a market in Spain. Basically, I’m trying to rid myself of all plastic containers in the bathroom (our village is trying to be plastic free). That means shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, shaving foam and squirty soap. I did a Google search to see if was as good as the market guy said, ie it will replace all the above. It does! Absolutely amazing stuff. Now this isn’t freely available in the U.K. and goodness knows how the market guy sourced it, as it comes from a very much war stricken part of Syria. Its well worth reading how it is produced, looking at YouTube and learning of its history. Anyhow, if anyone has used it, I hope that they got equally good results. And...where did you get it?
  12. This brought back memories and I’m talking 50 years ago. My dad worked at Broom Cross, which was on Tree Root Walk, as a radiographer and I would often walk there after school for a lift home. I’ve not been there for such a long time and no doubt the old buildings around there have been gobbled up by either Weston Park Hospital, where my dad moved to, or the Hallamshire Hospital. The XRay Centre was what would be classified as a centre of excellence these days. It was really pioneering stuff.
  13. I’m sorry to hear that. To serve on a Parish Council you have to live or work within the Parish. It is a real challenge trying to get new, young blood onto local committees. Helping with the Village Hall is one that comes to mind.
  14. I’ve been a Parish Councillor for a couple of years and, just like Smithy, do it for satisfaction in helping the village. It’s unpaid and like most jobs, you get out what you put in. There always seems to be a vacancy for a Parish Councillor on most Parish Councils. It’s not political and has very little power but we do our best to help the community. Play areas, football field, cemetery, and general village maintenance and management are the main responsibilities. If anyone has some spare time, pop along and have a chat with your local Parish Clerk. You will be made very welcome.
  15. Didn’t baseball originate in the U.K? Derby County played at the Baseball Ground but I’ve no idea of the history behind that. I’ve only seen one baseball match in the States....the Rays against the Jays. It was amazing and typical American razzmatazz. Not cheap but well worth it. And just like American Football and Ice Hockey, I’ve no idea of the rules.
