  1. The storey was lacking details it basicly says that they are going to spend £6 000 000.00 on 200 hundred people, so they get £30 000.00 each (nice). Just leaves me wondering what they are going to do and how it will help, government money usually goes to the people who bullshizzell a great deal and help no-one but themselves. Is this another one of those deals or are there real plans and is there a way to have some snake oil salesmans sprouts on the anvil should (s)he fails to deliver.
  2. It's been a busy month for me and the Peregrines have been out of mind. Tonight I thought I'd take a look at the webcam and I'm truly shocked at how fast these creatures have grown in a month. Just over four weeks ago I watched the second hatching: http://oi68.tinypic.com/29mslrp.jpg ...... and now I'm looking at them as they dare to risk life and wing before they (hopefully) fly the scrape. http://oi66.tinypic.com/35hjknp.jpg They really are pushing their luck aren't they?
  3. Had a look earlier and it was feeding time, pleased to see there are now three hatched chicks. Check out my screenshots http://oi65.tinypic.com/a828l.jpg
  4. I was lucky enough to catch the second hatch and first feeding today, so I took some screenshots. Sorry photos not in order but: top left: shows daddy eating eggshell after helping the chick out of shell. top right: shows floppy chick trying to get out of egg. bottom left: shows chick as it's about to be fed. bottom right: shows mommy bringing home the prey. http://i68.tinypic.com/29mslrp.jpg
  5. Whilst out taking a pleasant Sunday walk I kept comming across these little green wooden crosses hanging from trees and I would like to know what they are or what the significance of them is. Please put me out of my misery I need to know. http://i66.tinypic.com/25hehyb.jpg
  6. 3 way control traffic lights with poor timing, I went at lunchtime and spent a good 10 minutes waiting for their temporary traffic lights to change to green despite no cars coming out, but the lights were on green when exiting the store despite there not being any other cars but me. I'm sure the contractor will be aware of this and deal with it, or perhaps the works are only for a short time; just glad I'm not doing the rush traffic through halfway today.
  7. Asbestos is perfectly harmless if left undisturbed but needs to be periodically inspected for deterioration. It is the landlords duty to manage asbestos and inform anyone who may come in contact with it, usually tradesmen; and if necessary make arrangements for removal or encapsulation. Don't worry about it, be glad the council are taking their responsibilities seriously but if you do need to carry out any works or drill any holes I'm sure that they would be more than happy to share their information willingly.
  8. You could call Amey, I understand that they've been chopping lots of big trees down of late.
  9. op, did you see guns out or is there another reason for saying armed police. Armed police suggests another dimension to an apparent car crash, I'm intrigued.
  10. ...so if I want puppies, does that make me a bitch? It all looks a bit messed up to me but each to its own, though I'm a little concerned about the offspring. :confused:
  11. Sounds to me 'OP', that what you really need is a shelf not a bookcase.
  12. There are many who believe they should get a free ride, a free ride home and a lifelong ban from the UK.
  13. Well I think they're cute, I'd like to see more pigeons. The last time I went to ponds forge watching the birds flying around made an otherwise dull post workout coffee infinitely more interesting. Perhaps they could introduce other animals too, I'd like to see some friendly cats, parrots and spider monkeys, maybe even some fish in the pool too. It could catch on.
  14. A perv is basically a normal guy who scores lower than a 7.
  15. We should tear up the Dronfield bypass and build a big beautiful wall.
  16. Wow!, I used to use this car park about 8 years ago before I move to Sheffield and it was the same price then. Good to know now I've just moved away to NE Derbyshire with one foot still in Sheffield.
  17. Indeed, dress like the man you want to be is my motto........ I just couldn't understand why my boss had me up in the HR department whilst donning my favourite spiderman outfit.
  18. A few years ago I did the Sam Smiths brewery tour and one thing they told us is that the water they used they pulled up from an underground lake below the brewery itself; Given that fact alone is good enough reason for them shudder at the thought of a piling rig rocking up anywhere near their premises and potentially altering the taste of their unique brewing water.
  19. I'm sure that they were lovely lads with all the best intentions but the effect of seeing guns in public made me feel uneasy and unsafe. The thought of a potential terrorist attack wasn't even a concern to me until I saw those guys. Statistically speaking the chances of a full on terrorist attack on the Sheffield Christmas markets are minuscule, though it is good to know that the police are ready 'if necessary' but it should be measured and not flaunted in my opinion.
  20. Today I had decided to take a stroll around the city centre in search of last minute Christmas shopping; as I was mooching around the Christmas Markets that are currently on Fargate I came face to face with a couple of police officers brandishing rifles as they patrolled. This to me was quite a shocking sight; personally I find guns in a public place unnerving and unnecessary. I have two questions: 1) Are we, the people of Sheffield under that much of a threat that needs highly visible armed patrols? 2) Does this normalisation of armed coppers up the ante meaning that the desperados who wouldn’t normally carry weapons decide that they should ‘tool up’ as well. It was a bad sign of how society is shaping up, knocked the Christmas spirit right out of me.
  21. I think Brian isn't the sort of shy retiring type that struggles to get a word in:hihi: I'd bet he's a laugh to be around though I suspect it'd all be too much for the likes of AlexAtkin.
  22. Indeed, hear his own views on the subject; especially his opinion of 'Julian'
  23. I'm tracking it and it looks like it going towards Humberside airport. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just landed at Humberside airport as you predicted.
  24. Looks like its off again, now buzzing the good people of Rotherham.
  25. It was loud but it had about 8 lights under it, I thought I'd seen my first ufo at first:hihi:
