  1. What's the beer like in the Wortley Arms?


    It's one of those pubs that's not far from High Green, but I never really think of going there for a pint.


    I only discovered Wortley Hall was open to the general public last year. :blush:






    Hi Doom , Farmers Blonde , Landlord and Black Sheep and the occasional Wentworth brewery offering. One side for the beer drinkers , the fireside usually for the diners.

  2. Yes quite sure. he looked at me and had liam on the number plate. I just saw that beady eye are playing o2 academy on november 11th so might have been something to do with that. Also did a google search and he was seen 8 months ago in a white RR Phantom.

    It's Gary Numan who is playing the O2 Academy on Nov 11th . Had me worried there as I've got tickets for the Numan show!

  3. Wortley Farm Shop is very good as well, they even have some locally produced cider on sale from Holmfirth - which is bloody excellent.


    Ill second this.


    .....and i'll third it!!


    Great location in the village next to the flower shop. Very reasonable prices for a farm shop. They sell Kegs of Bradfield beers too!

  4. I think the venue has been a welcome addition to the city. It was nice to see Roxy's open again after being derelict for so many years. I love the 50s cinema signage out the front. I also think if we didn't have one we'd lose out on a lot of acts who just do the Academy chain circuit now.


    I guess the consequence is that it has killed off the University as a venue - the two rooms at the Academy have taken all the touring bands who used to play at the Octagon and Foundary respectively.


    My only small complaints about the venue is that they have no beer - maybe one cooking bitter, but usually that is off. Slightly better than the Carling days though where there weren't even non-Carling options. And the sound is often a bit crap in the small room for some reason.


    Ditto this.


    All my favourite artists appear to do the Academy circuit. Saw a great Pendulum gig here. Seen the Prodigy and Gary Numan too. In fact booking today for the Gary Numan show in November.

  5. Do not spout utter wikipedia clap trap, this lady needed urgent attention. At any age a DVT is serious but at 67 years of age she would have needed a scan to find the clot, more than likely needed Fragmin injected for speedy treatment and a ECG to determine what if any irregularities her heart was showing,then admitting for observation and Warfarin given.


    You did the correct thing Dolly, the NHS advice line is giving out so much bad advice they are putting peoples health at risk not helping. If Sheffield's so called paramedics are as unfit and unmotivated as Rotherham then you will expect more treatment like this in the future but take comfort in the fact that these issues are being looked into.



    Oh dear..... please do not spout drivel and misinform people based on little knowledge. The DVT nurse team at NGH A+E would see possible DVT's but not usually as a 999 emergency. Patient's are usually referred by their GP (usually same day) or self present. The only time an ambulance would be apppropriate is if the patient developed other signs and symptoms eg chest pain / shortness of breath.


    VW crazed - your treatment plan of a patient with suspected DVT is wrong but on the right tracks. Please do not post incorrect medical information on a public forum which may scare others.

  6. I think something along the lines of Xscape would do well. Skiing hoildays are on the increase and people have to learn somewhere. The infrastructure is already there and i'm sure it could still be competitive and also save people from South Yorkshire having to travel to Manchester or Castleford which are already too busy. We have a considerable catchment area to tap into.

  7. Yep it was the predicted quadtrantid meteor shower last night although a bright moon may have outshone it in parts.


    On a different note I think it's amazing that the Voyager1 spacecraft has now left our solar system and is now entering deep space after 35 years of travel!!

  8. And if he does come to sheffield will he finaly tell us the truth that the moon landings did'nt happen and it was all a con.


    Oh dear......


    Conspiracy theorists that have bad grammar are the worst :roll:


    I am sure you are SO well informed about this Kal?


    Satellites have well documented pictures of all the lunar landings and the flag and plaque are still there. I suppose we don't have a spacecraft Rover on Mars either. Have both Voyagers left our solar system?


    C'mon Kal let us all know!

  9. It was facinating watching men walk on the moon, but our challange is to raise £50,000 for surgery so Lillie is given a chance to be able to walk unaided on planet earth.


    Always a difficult one this.


    On a grander scale should Barrack Obama be giving NASA more funds to have a manned mission to Mars /asteroids and then into deep space or should that funding be spent on hospitals?


    My view is that man has to move forward and experiment. We are a land of explorers that pushes the boundaries of humanity. Science is the future and finding out more about who we are and what fascinating discoveries that will happen in the future.


    We could spend this money on hospitals / care etc. but if we had done that in the past we would have been slower to evolve and progress and still be living in caves.

  10. You say that, yet you've just had a pop at Janie for it



    ...which Janie wasn't doing


    I find that you get more out of them if you don't go on the attack. Janie gave her answer to Lockjaw and you've attacked her for it.


    Please read my post and understand it before replying and making a fool of yourself.


    The first two sentences apply to the poster. I then generalise in my concluding two sentences by using the words "anyone" and "people" to emphasise my point.

  11. That the presence of God can be anywhere which is what i believe, without necessary having a comprehention or definition of what God is, or an image as such.


    I'll ask you the same question,but its getting late so save it for another time now.


    Do you also believe in fairy's at the bottom of your garden?


    Do you seriously believe in something that has no evidence to back it up but for a book of fairy tales? Talking of that i'm looking forward to seeing The Hobbitt next week!;)


    If anyone finds having faith helps them through their life then I can accept that. It's when they start attempting to brainwash others with their inane ramblings that I become offended.


    I also find it impossible and laughable that people who believe in "Gods" cannot engage in reasoned debate but have some irrational brainwashing which prevents them from actual reality.

  12. I think people, in times when they didn't know much about the world, invented gods to help explain why we exist and why life can be good or crap. They also invented gods to give them a sense of control; not just over the harsh environment, but also over others - especially over who or what they feared. Over the centuries, because of accumulated knowledge about the environment, people and the universe, there are fewer reasons - especially fear based reasons - to believe in a god.


    So, now god beliefs are on their way out -or becoming more wishy washy - what do people do? They start inventing scenarios where aliens might have made us - and, in some cases, invent fearful scary aliens to boot.


    Same old same old.


    Very well articulated. The Hubble telescope has discovered millions of galaxies out there in an ever expanding universe. Galaxies are being formed constantly.


    The law of physics and also averages deem there will be life out there. It just saddens me that it could be thousands of years before we encounter any as even the nearest galaxy of Andromeda would take thousands of years to get to with current technology. It took voyager 35 years to get to the edge of our own solar system!


    We are nothing special on Earth and there is no great meaning for us being here. We are but a tiny insignificant dot in a massive universe. You live then you die , end of.

  13. I will be making my usual xmas contribition on top of my monthly donation to the Matènwa Community Center School in Haiti. They teach in Haitian Creole instead of the goverment ordained French that only 5% of the population speak.


    Last year, another forum that I am a member of raised $115,000 for them. That buys a lot of stuff in Haiti.


    This year's thread is here if you want to read it.


    Or you can just donate here You can use the dropdown button to make sure that Matènwa gets your donation.The kids will absolutely love you for it.



    All well and good but there are plenty of local charities that need the money as well. Shouldn't we be helping closer to home first before extending our palms to distant countries?

  14. I'm sure many of the posters mean well on here but giving inappropriate advice or guessing "just because my uncle had something similar" does not help in these situations. Advising the patient to go to A+E instead of their doctor shows a complete lack of understanding of what A+E is there for and why we get so busy with patients that require GP referral to the relevant speciality.

  15. Hi Wayne- the most appropriate next step for you is to visit your GP. You have chronic signs and symptoms which are not , at this stage , acute. If you went to A+E you would only be referred back to your GP for further testing.


    As a previous post mentioned - it is likely you may have H pylori which is an extremely common bacteria found in the stomach which slowly erodes the lining eventually causing ulcers. Non invasive testing at the surgery followed by antobiotic therapy if found should clear it up.


    Reduce alcohol intake , spicy foods and smoking as this aggravates it. Wear loose fitting belts as you may have "reflux" which can leave a bitter taste in your mouth.

  16. Something along the lines of chill factor in Manchester and Xscape at Castleford would surely be the best way forward. Some may question a third indoor snow slope in the north but I firmly believe there is a need especially when you look at how busy the other two are.


    The infrastructure is almost in place already and the increase in people booking ski holidays from the UK , on the increase. The catchment area is vast. Can't believe this hasn't happened before now.

  17. Her dedication and total focus has to be admired. She was streets ahead of her competitors but appears very popular with her fellow athletes. She doesn't have an ego and just appears an all round lovely person.


    The way she flew past the tall Ukranian and Russian on the final straight last night was awesome.... little Jessica just pulled out , changed gears and rocketed off past the two six footers to win easily with her arms aloft in triumph as she pased the finishing line!!


    A true superstar!!!!!
