  1. If you wash in disinfect bird boxes you may find that the birds that used them will not return to them. People need to learn from the past to stop panicking Cleaning a bird box will not stop birds bringing this into the country, Nor will it stop or control bird flu think about this logically
  2. Many elderly suffer from anemia. I do, Though I fee hot at times there are times when I feel really cold. Many times I have to turn down the heat in my home when I have visitors. Though it is not only anemia that can make people feel cold. Then on the other side of the cold we may ask. Why do people go out half naked in winter. Young women with flimsy tops and short skirts off to the pub. As well as young men in T Shirts far too small for them showing off tattoo's in all kinds of weather including rain and snow. I guess it is just how people feel comfortable
  3. Re my above reply. I P.M'd you but as yet had no reply. I was hoping for 4 of these for my bird area on the garden. Not heard from you yet, But I guess you may be busy, Will P.M again
  4. Now I have seen it all. Relying upon Sheffield Forum for an emergency such as this. What would this poster have done had they not got the internet. Surely they have a neighbour that has a phone. Is the internet top up more important than a mobile top up. What would the poster do in a life and death situation. Good job we have some sensible people on the forum keeping a look out. What would a person without the internet do if they did not have a phone. Open all doors and windows, Get everyone out of the house. Then ring on a neighbours phone
  5. Sad to say. Trust has become an issue with everyone now even friends. I will never trust anyone unless they are close friends. This is a difficult situation especially youngsters who would be looked upon as a grass if they go to the Police. Today young people do not know the meaning of the term grass. I also suffered a theft this week from a friend. My Nephew used to live with me. Sunday night A young man knocked on my door rather the worse for drink. Last time I saw him was 18 months ago . Then he was a decent lad. He asked where my nephew and partner were living now. I would not tell him without my nephews permission. I said he is now married and has a child that I would let him know to make some contact. He seemed happy with this and asked if he could use the toilet. I let him but at the same time I had to answer the door to a neighbour. I was talking to my neighbour for about 5 mins or so as he came walking back through my room. As he came out of my front door he said Nite and hurried away. It was then I became a little suspicious. Going back indoors I discovered the once nice kid had turned into a vile druggie / robber. I found £20 missing from the top of my cocktail bar, A Birthday card with £20 in it. 2 Packets of tobacco from my kitchen table along with 2 packets of medication ( pills ). The following morning I was ready to go out when I saw a bottle of whisky had gone from the bar as well as some change from my pocket hung in my kitchen. He was very quick indeed. Had it not been for my health and age I would have gone out looking for him. But I have told everyone he knows including his family what he has done. He will get his just deserts. Reporting some things to the police can attract trouble, Also they would not deal with this as it would have been dealt with some years ago. Just stealing medication ( pills) would have been serious enough for the police to act. Not Now. This is the first time my home has been robbed by a so called friend. It will be the last.
  6. Depending upon the area they are in, They will not need extras
  7. You are correct chez2. I have had to rely upon a friend of mine chasing this up. Maybe getting a little confused with age. Thanks very much, I have arranged to get one Friday, Again thanks for correcting me. Anthony
  8. The reason for reposting on genera; discussions was to get a wider response. These are used by many people not just gardeners. Hence I thought someone that may work with them may get in touch with me
  9. I had a response from a guy in Ecclesfield. I paid for a trailer to collect. But despite asking a police officer we could not find the house. The number did not seem to exist. Sorry re your response chez. I did contact them. They did not have any 45 gal drums..
  10. I am trying to find out where I can buy a 40 gal burn drum from.. No not the small burn bins. There were plenty of these being sold last year and advertised in The Star. Now it is difficult to get them already holed and ready for use. Can anyone help.
  11. Sent a message but no reply. I am interested in 4 please,,,, PM me or call. 3071223. or mobile me on 07786768081
  12. Have to admit, It worries me, I tried to go private but because of my health I found this hard. What a state we are in now with the NHSS
  13. I need a 45 gallon burn drum. Managed to buy one on forum last year. Anybody know where we can get one from already punched air with holes. I know shops sell the small burn bins. I need the large drum. Thanking you in anticipation Anthony
  14. You are right. I have 4 cams round my home. I took advice before putting them up. As long as they do not breach a persons right to privacy they are OK. ie, Face another neighbours doors or windows. This is common sense. People are encouraged to use cctv where there may be a problem especially on gardens or garages..
  15. Every home have received a pamphlet explaining in very plain english. As well as T.V ads also phone numbers . Some people will be able to obtain a freeview box free of charge. No you will not have to buy a new T.V. The ariel should pick up the signal. If not ring the help line and help will be available. How much more simple can they make it
  16. Cheers kevvy. I will give them a try.
  17. Where can I get rhubarb roots from. If anyone can assist please e mail me. Thanking you in anticipation Anthony anthonyrodgers@blueyonder.co.uk
  18. Has anyone had problems with Charles Clifford Dental Hospital. I have waited close on two years for treatment. I cannot go to a private dentist because of my health ./ age. I have always been referred to the Hospital. After extensive tests for allergies before treatment at the Dental Hospital I have waited 18 months for an appointment. Now after all this time my teeth have deteriorated so much they will have to come out. I have pain and serious discomfort. I rang them out of desperation to be told they cannot find my papers. Then they rang me back to say that the Students were on holiday and they could do nothing till September. They had found my file and would try and get me sorted after September. The dental services in this country are disgusting.
  19. I rang and was told I would be charged if I was not a tenant. Also. I mentioned where they come from and that they need to bait the area. I was told that they cannot do that. They will only bait my property. Just to check whilst I was writing this I rang them to check.. Yes I would have to pay if I was not a council tenant
  20. You must report this to Council. But it is the house where the problem is that has to make the report. They will come out and bait if you have seen them on your property. No charge if you are a council tenant. Your next door neighbor has to report any on his garden before they will set traps. But they will also order him to clean up the area. I have had the very same problem with rats coming on my garden from the nursery next door. I and he will be ordered to put this right.f you report your neighbor for this to the Health Department they will send out an inspector
  21. Firstly. You can get advice free of charge from a solicitor. Why Howells. There are several legal concerns that will give you free advice and will advise upon legal aid any rights that you have. Asking how much a solicitor charges is like asking how much as a loaf of bread. There are not set charges. Also it depends upon the work needed, Files and people they may have to take statements from etc. Also this would not be an overnight job. If your husband sees a solicitor does not mean you would go to Court. You would also be sent a letter from his solicitor stating his concerns. It is then you could take legal advice. Do not worry. I wish I had a pound for every time someone says they are seeing a solicitor especially when I was married. Also the way family courts work has now changed. They encourage mediation now. It can be nerve racking but believe me it is not so bad now as it used to be. His solicitor would also advise mediation if he is a decent one. As for costs. Do not let this bother you. Just take advantage of the free advice that you can get.
  22. I am placing this ad for a friend of mine called John Mosley, Well known at the center who is seeking friends from the early 80's. I am doing research for a book about my life and Sheffield. I am trying to contact anybody that resided at Center 45 Hostel during 1984. I am especially trying to find a Jimmy Cox who would have been in his late teens at that time. If anybody can assist with information I would be most obliged if you would contact me by PM or call me on 01142209189..... Or e-mail me at para.legal@blueyonder.co.uk
  23. I suspect that this post is a leg puller Though I guess it is a good idea and a novel way to discover what people think about Sheffield. Only the Mods would know by checking out his I.P
  24. I did the same, One morning about 3.30am the phone rang and I was told " we are coming for you ". I asked them what time their plane will land and I would meet them.
