  1. So you are now saying that there is a divide! Nice people live in nice areas, bad people in bad areas, or is that just the state of your mind?
  2. Nice areas don't just happen by themselves, money makes them nice. If the money ceased, you would soon see these nice areas turn into holes!
  3. If people live in a well cared for area, they will treat it with respect. Put them in a s***hole, and they will treat it like one!
  4. It is stupid though. I went to the shop today for bread and milk, and ended up having to come home with £20's worth of Pot Noodles.
  5. get high off horse???? Wierd Your first sentence made more sense pal, stick with it.
  6. So there are parts of the city where all residents work hard, and there are parts of the city where all residents sit on their sofas all day! Shame on you!
  7. :hihi: That's the first giggle i've had on here tonight.
  8. Judging from the response from the people in the pubs, I would place Walkley firmly in "my" North. After thirty years, The locals clearly view you as one of "my" Southerners.
  9. I had already seen your above, I was, and still am with you all the way.
  10. Oops! Sounds like a typically Southern reply to me. Correct me if I'm wrong. The North have a "lack of interest and motivation"! Glad that they are your words and not mine!
  11. I don't wish to argue with you libertarian. I was raised in Dore and my parent's still live there, but I have seen the other side of the coin. The community organisation statement was off mark in both directions. Do you not think that the "North" want to improve their surroundings? Time is not the issue. It is all down to finance.
  12. Are you testing me, or are you about to give us all a revelation? Don't be shy dongle. Share it with the group.
  13. It is actually one of the best. I take it that you haven't stepped any further than Forge. Sheltered life your kid's lead. Tut tut.
  14. My bold. Why??? Your statement is the strangest so far. Back it up.
  15. So you admit there is a divide! The South (remember the metaphor) use private sport centres, so have no need to mix with the "North". Check out the locations of members only sport centres.
  16. I have, but not by my own choice. I have noticed that over the past five years or so, that there is a huge distinction. On my travels I have seen the likes of Dore and Fullwood entering the Britain in Bloom competition. I can't say the same for Fir Vale or Gleadless Valley! Why not? Surely tax payer’s money is equally distributed around the city!?
  17. I am using the North/South divide as a metaphor. I take my kids out and about when I am of work, we go all over the place. If the kids see a park or playground on our travels, they pester me into submission to stop the car (other parent's will sympathize with this:(). I have noticed a huge difference between playgrounds in different parts of the city. Parks in the more affluent parts of the city (lets call them South) have up to the minute apparatus with child safe surfaces. The less affluent areas (lets call them North) have parks with worn out apparatus, and dangerous tarmac floor surfaces. My observation’s expanded to the general appearance of these areas. South, well cared for with an obvious injection of cash from somewhere?! North, run down and little attention to the surroundings. I am sure that I am not the only one to notice this divide, I just can't work out the reasons for it.
  18. Lets hope that all this "practice" won't lead to someone's peril. As stated in another thread, many pedestrians are using the roads to walk on as the footpaths aren't clear. This is an extra hazard for the motorist to be aware of. Most of the motorists that I have seen in action can't deal with the snow and ice and yet another hazard could all end in disaster. If you are a poor driver (you people know who you are). STAY OFF THE ROADS!
  19. Hey you! what's all this "us" business, I naked snow dance alone! (you told me you could keep a secret Joe!!!)
  20. So are you saying that I'm wasting my time doing my naked snow dance in the garden?! You could have let me know earlier Mathom! I'm freezing my tat' of here!
