  1. Birley Hotel - a friend of mine (a rock singer) up from his home in Devon called in at his old haunt on Monday night to find it packed out with all (very) elderly people on a karaoke night, says it was great, especially excellent pint of Stones at £1.58 a pint. Seems some pubs can do it.
  2. steveh; there's truth in this but it depends on engine type, bearing tolerences etc. A friend who owned a microwave servicing business ran a 1987 Fiesta 1.8 diesel van for 450,000 miles (until the fuel pump had worn) on ordinary diesel oil but at the recommended changes. Only problems with the engine was a cam belt breakage and a starter motor.
  3. Wilkinson, Hillsboro - 5 litres semi-synthetic diesel oil 15/40w about £8. OK for older cars, probably made by large lubricant manufacturer.
  4. My mother once lived at No 123 and a schoolfriend lived about third of way down on the left. My ancestors also owned the Freedom House. Also attended the Boy's Brigade at the church (is it still there?) near the bottom.
  5. I doubt if the government can be persuaded to to do that sccux. However, to use an analogy, if a person repeatedly hits his thumb with a hammer there's a limit to how many times the NHS will keep sticking plasters on, even if he's already paid for them. Many moons ago, I drank and smoke with the rest of them, but if pubs ever did revert to their former status then I would simply choose not to be a customer and leave it to the protagonists to strike their compromise.
  6. It certainly does, it might read; ENTER AT YOUR PERIL!
  7. MR BENN; Calendar have tonight reported another 50 pubs in Yorkshire alone are going to open a `smoking research room` Perhaps it would be helpful if these pubs posted a prominent notice at the door so non-smokers could choose whether to enter or not.
  8. Two relatives of mine, a man and his wife, were refused further treatment by their Sheffield hospital unless they stopped their heavy smoking, a habit which had almost certainly caused the serious conditions that both are now suffering.
  9. In the fifties and sixties, in-car players for 45rpm 7ins discs were available.
  10. Collins, Langsett Rd; The driver for one of their carts lived a few doors from me off Grammar St, Lower Walkley, he was an alcoholic and frequently you would see the horse and cart parked outside the White Horse pub (corner of Grammar/Creswick St) balloons still tied to the back, the horse waiting patiently. Apparently on one occasion the cart wheels fouled the tram lines on Penistone road resulting in gold fish being tipped over, traffic was at a standstill until all flapping fish were gathered up!
  11. You can always ask your solicitor to find out about loft insulation, boiler type etc, or simply ask the owner yourself. As its only ten years old then there shouldn't be any boundary problems, but generally, as you know, solicitors never make a personal inspection of the property, they just look at the filed plan on the Land Certificate. On more mature properties the neighbours do all sorts of things to the boundaries that never appear on the filed plan! Good luck with your purchase.
  12. If its been advertised before the Aug 08 HIP inception date then it doesnt need one, but I think it may need an EPC, although I wouldn't worry about this for what good they are. More importantly, make certain that the boundaries (if a house) are well defined and undisputed.
  13. lagerlil-just read back through threads, you'll find plenty on these cinemas.
  14. Bayern Blade- this may have been the place then.
  15. Not a prisoner of war camp, but some kind of "glasshouse" for Allied airman, was apparently opposite the Norton Hotel, Bochum Parkway. A friend says she used to see Canadians behind the wire there, also some connection with a R.E.M.E. station. Perhaps someone could clarify.
  16. Trade descriptions? Advertising Standards Authority?
  17. (dizzyblonde) That can be worth trying as long as you have somewhere to keep your food frozen. This action really affects the circulation or re-settles the fluid in the compressor/pipe circuit. Switch off for 24 hrs, clean unit, then switch on and test. I don't think leaving the door open will damage the stat.
  18. If the freezer temp is normal then it does look like the fridge stat. some fridge freezers have a seperate temp control for the freezer part, in which case your appliance will have two motors. Is the temp control knob inside your fridge? If you look carefully you might see the control wire leading away from it towards the back inside panel and/or onto the top panel, terminating with the actual sensor bit. If you can see these components then that could mean it has a better chance of being replaced with what's termed as a "Universal Thermostat".
  19. Good advice from Susie, dont be in a rush, then you could try a fixed price "buy it now sale"-but be warned, a friend has had no end of problems lately with some overseas ebay buyers-he now insists on bank transfers rather than paypal.
  20. Is it a fridge or fridge freezer? You may be right in suspecting the thermostat. You could phone A1 Domestics on Halifax Rd, they've been repairing fridges for years. Quote the make/model.
  21. Have you had it valued or at least researched its value on the internet? I wouldn't dispose of it unless I was certain of its market value.
  22. It is unclear how your dog can escape from behind your dog guard. Is he/she trained? The dog must do what you want, not the other way round. Breeders always transport ther dogs in cages in the back (usually over long distances to shows); in the event of an accident it has proved to give the dog and driver the best chance of survival, otherwise the dog will hit the windscreen with some force.
  23. Could anyone please tell me whether said brakes use either permanent or electro-magnets?
  24. Perhaps there's no point in trying to chase them in cars, and/or there's no money at the end of it due to the culprit's age.
