  1. You are correct in advising on a Group B for Emley Moor, although a wideband is advised for Crosspool because of Channel 5 (analogue).
  2. Normally, if you get a good pic on all 5 channels (analogue stations) then it is possible that you will get good freeview, which is more critical of a clean aerial signal. Look at surrounding aerials to get an idea of which transmitter may be favoured. The later aerials are broadband type which are more suitable. Ring round and you should get a quote over the phone, describe the type of property and the existing installation. I have recommended several people to an aerial rigger whose address is on Colley Road (I think) S5 and is very competative on price and quality.
  3. It is not a fine Malky, private companies cannot issue them, and any so called "penalty" charge (damages) can only be commensurate with any financial loss that the landowner has incurred directly from the overstayed parking.
  4. Its good but you have to be selective-I buy large plain yoghurts 49p, tinned salmon steak 1.19p, cucumbers 49p and so on, but beware produce like broccoli and spring onions as they sometimes keep them too long. They have an excellent non-food range which is updated every week.
  5. My father worked at Joseph Rodgers in the 60s and he used to take me up into the board room where you could view the knife in its glass case. There was also another exhibition knife there but I cannot remember its name.
  6. Ive got a tinful of all sizes metric nuts and bolts, you are welcome to have a look although I live at Wadsley Bridge. Working this w/end though, will be out by 11.15am.
  7. Can you give a detailed description of the bolt, ie, is it a special or standard type? What is its length, thickness, how far along does the thread go? Is it a cap or hexagon head? DIY stores usually keep standard sizes.
  8. Word of warning-burning materials such as plastics will produce toxic, carcogenic smoke and fumes, not very nice on the neighbourhood.
  9. During the 1960s I was a pupil at the Central Technical School (boys only) on Leopold Street, after passing the "12 plus". Throughout all the school, the central yard included, not one toffee wrapper or bus ticket could be seen-really. If you were seen dropping anything in or out of school you were disciplined, it would not be tolerated, nor was bullying or swearing. The headmaster was 6ft 2 and wielded a large cane.
  10. It is obviously a deliberate action, the psychology of which eludes me. Perhaps they are marking their territory, or as a sign of protest, or laying down some kind of challenge to society? Wonder what they'd say if someone flung a half eaten pizza onto their lounge carpet.
  11. I may be right that Poundland, or similar outlets, sells a "Nescafe" with slightly different wording on the label. I once tried it, and it certainly wasn't genuine Nescafe but an inferior alternative.
  12. Inso-far as there is a choice, fine, but (for example) rural villages might only have one pub or cafe so one or the other (person) is going to be excluded. Trying to isolate smoke to one part of a pub is also big problem as the layout of many of our older pubs makes this impractical or hard to accomplish.
  13. Pubs have always been drinking and smoking dens and I think that they ought to have remained that way, but how can the non-smokers be accommodated if they prefer to have a meal in a clean atmosphere and not come away smelling like an ashtray? We would also have to consider the position of other establishments such as restaurants, cafes, cinemas, etc.
  14. Now let's assume I've got 3 bottles of wine and a 10 pack of Stella left over from Xmas- how much should I sell it for, or have I to give it away?
  15. One yardstick, although not necessarily conclusive, is to note the amount (if any) of litter in and around the school's premises and perimeter. This might indicate the attitude of the teachers.
  16. The only reason that the alarms trigger when there is a power cut is because the internal standby batteries have not been checked/replaced for years.
  17. There's one situated at lights outside Lidl, Halifax Road, only trips on red. All speed cameras now have to be yellow.
  18. Alcohol taxes go to the government, and are proportionate to the retail price (and the strength); the alcohol free types presumably wont increase should the proposed minimum pricing be implemented.
  19. Another stealth tax? Also, I wonder whether the "alcohol-free beers" will be any cheaper?
  20. Its due to several factors; reading low standard english as in the Daily Star and Sun etc. (even The Times is riddled with bad syntax), not reading good quality literature, etc. Also some correspondents don't seem to "proof read" their article prior to sending it.
  21. There certainly was a large fishtank containing tropical fish, viewed through a large glass panel in the wall of the underpass. Don't know who owned it. Woudn't last two minutes now.
  22. This is a low quality blend with a posh name. If you buy in this price range, try Lidl's brands which are superior to this one.
  23. It has lovely decorations-tons of litter. Councils waiting for the March gales to blow it all away (into everybodies gardens).
