  1. Yes, a friend had a separate recording studio in the same building (1979). It was Britannia Works, Love Street formerly Henry Dixon Ltd. Pics can be found on picturesheffield/.com.
  2. Read (a good while ago) that an artifact was found somewhere around Rivelin turned out to be a type of metal badge issued to Roman soldiers when they were de-mobilized from the army.
  3. Which reminds me, add mushrooms, too!
  4. The aroma of wild rabbit roasting in the oven whilst being basted with stew gravy could sway even the most ardent vegetarians.
  5. That is (or used to be) common around High Green, also they seem to emphasise the "t" in some words.
  6. There's plenty of info on Google under "drywall bulge/buckle".
  7. Actually (as teenagers) we formed a club; we put out a request through The Star for readers to donate badges and I ended up with the enamel one. Someone craftily purloined it though and I never saw it again.
  8. I'm no expert and can't comment further, but I have seen plaster board "buckle".
  9. Presume it's a solid brick wall and not a stoothing partition? Old houses usually are brick partitions, but with plasterboard mentioned probably a hollow wall. Is other side flat and normal looking?
  10. I had a Gloops badge, AND it was a brass one with blue enamel!
  11. I doubt whether that would happen by the amount of litter I've seen around some school gates. Teachers or at least the adults that pass by to enter the schools either don't care or are oblivious to it.
  12. If I'm conversing with a foreigner whose english is not good, or over the telephone, then I'll modify my accent (and some words) for the sake of clarity.
  13. When I knocked out my internal kitchen wall (2.6m span) I used a 6" x 5" girder, above it is the wall up to the eaves. Below the removed single-brick wall is a 12" girder, fitted when the house was built in 1940. It all survived the house shaking during the earthquake in 2008.
  14. Yes, the forgotton and neglected bit of the car! Not necessary though now.
  15. Bottom it first with ajax or brillo pads.
