    Queens Rd Traffic Scheme

    You cannot put a price on the frustration of motorists...just another ploy to keep motorists away from the city. These ideas are thought up by those who don't even drive probably

    My daughter barters in any and every store, and gets a discount most times...even at the big stores. I occasionally do too, and with success. Try it.

    Back pain

    Is the Sheffield Back Pain Association still around?.....or the equivalent in other areas...
  13. May I cross your coloured waters Mr Fish? (Was a game we played on our lawn...) Hopscotch Hide and seek
  14. Only this evening...top of Greenhill Ave....where a vehicle had come from Meadowhead roundabout to turn right down Greenhill Ave, only to have a car coming from Bradway smash into it. Maybe the pedestrian lights are at fault, as the red lights warning pedestrians not to cross are so big and so bright, oncoming vehicles may be confused, thinking the red lights are for oncoming traffic. Action MUST be taken before there is a fatality. Seems all the vehicle occupants were out of the badly smashed vehicles.

    Another crash at Greenhill

    If you have been through it many times, fair enough..you know the possible hazard. However for a driver maybe new to the area, it was about 10.30pm, so quite dark, the red lights would have been very visible..

    Local elections 2 May 2019

    It is really a pity that local governments are party political. Most of the councillors in my Parish are independents...and party politics just doesnt come into any deliberations...

    16rpm was more for voice, not music.

    mobile mechanic for classic

    If it was ok when you parked it up, my reckoning that it is just surface rust, and should soon clear if you try to drive the car. Maybe you have left the handbrake on, and the shoes have simply stuck to the drums, and would free off as soon as the car moves. I never use the handbrake on mine in the garage..which is level... Hope this helps, let us know...

    is everywhere in kelham island card only

    Because it isnt like spending money. You used to go out with £20then go home when you had run out of cash. With a card, you need so much self control, which is harder after a few drinks!l

    Tractor or HGV tyres

    They do make great sandpits for kids...
  22. smithy266

    Tyre sizes.

    If you use it on the driven axle, the diff will think you are going around a loooong corner and may get warm, and if it is on the steering, may pull to one side. Why do you want/need to do this?

    Bulls Eye

    The old shows are being repeated...just switched on to see Sheffield lads Mick Liversage and his pal win the game...cannot remember seeing it the first time all those years ago...the Childrens' Hospital also benefitted by about £600
