  1. People of Sheffield, your greatest fans need help from your famously big hearts! What is needed are recommendations of places that make great photographs. Examples with pose suggestions will be especially appreciated. This is your chance to big up your favourite places to visit in Sheffield. Sheffield is such a big amazing place with so many splendid places to go that it can be quite overwhelming to new people of the Steel city. The big idea is to help stream-line first-time visitor's plans a little, and to guarantee that they will have at least one great photo for their scrap books. There are no rules as such, except for the usual. Keep it decent and respectable. If a photo is beautiful to you then it will help someone. Here are some to get people going. They don't necessarily even need to be photos because of the incredible Google Street-view. Here are some of the street view locations I came up with: Peace garden https://www.google.com/maps/@53.3799363,-1.469791,3a,75y,112.61h,86.34t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipMazhXRxV9vuzYOrkel9eoIg9klZjcz8ytzhWf0!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipMazhXRxV9vuzYOrkel9eoIg9klZjcz8ytzhWf0%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-15.14068-ya124.71278-ro-0-fo100!7i7776!8i3888 Crucible and Lyceum theatre https://www.google.com/maps/@53.3807944,-1.4671749,3a,75y,99.02h,104.92t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sHd855OCGEB_1EUbRzvvEBw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Winter Garden https://www.google.com/maps/@53.3799294,-1.4679465,3a,75y,182.2h,119.82t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipPCPcUCFfvN72uC0qgMvInqVCh-Zt3Ay-BZZxHO!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPCPcUCFfvN72uC0qgMvInqVCh-Zt3Ay-BZZxHO%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi0-ya95.81825-ro0-fo100!7i5376!8i2688 Ponds Forge https://www.google.com/maps/@53.3828557,-1.4625937,3a,75y,166.83h,94.38t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s2E9F_hnrI2OBgnzCiWrFug!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  2. I know it doesn't make a difference, because I've seen the delivery guys at chicken cottage swinging and banging about those huge bags of chicken portions in play during delivery with my own eyes. It costs nothing to handle them better, but they're pressured to get the job done as quickly as possible no matter what they're paid. Just as is with everything else, food cost is carefully balanced with the number of expected purchases to maximise profit. The chicken will be sourced as cheaply as possible anyway. Being halal* isn't a sign of it's quality either. It's a religious thing. If quality sources mean an increase in profit, then those sources will be utilised, but then so will anything. I understand that you haters gotta hate too, but I'm not looking so naive All that aside... Back on-topic. Adnans is still out in front at 5 pieces for £5.50, and I am happy to vouch for their quality personally. I'm looking forward to hear of anywhere as cheap or cheaper. *Halal in a nutshell. Normally, the animal is drained of blood after death, but Halal dictates that the animal is alive while the blood is drained.
  3. This thread is about the cheapest fried chicken. It's all the same. The recipe's might be different, but they aren't going to be dangerous to eat. Chicken is inherently cheap, and even the worst available has to be good quality, otherwise it would be illegal to sell. It's unfair of you to accuse the cheapest chicken friers of selling dangerous, or even lower quality chicken. Especially if you're not prepared to test them. Personally, I haven't had a problem with buying cheaper chicken, and would suggest that your words exist purely to encourage customers to pay more than they need to for food. If a seller of food sells dangerous food then it should ideally be reported. The cost of the food is not an indication of it's quality. There are many factors that make the chicken expensive, and they are never the quality of the food.
  4. I'm a computer programmer, and like most computer programmers, my favourite food is Southern Fried Chicken. I just can't get enough. I eat loads of it. I'm not talking wings here, but thighs and drumsticks that are southern fried. In my experience, although the recipes vary a little from fryer to fryer, they just can't seem to get the taste wrong. It is delicious! The cheapest place I've found so far is Adnans on West St who sell 5 pieces for £5.50 (£1.10 per piece). What I want to know is, where is it cheaper? Please share, even if I have to buy 20 pieces in one go to get the bargain. Just so you know, at Adnans, 20 pieces would cost me £22. Even if it's the same price, but tastes better. Please, I need to know! PS: I would normally get that I need chicken feeling at about this time (It's getting on for 11pm). I'm fishing for an S.F.C happy hour I reckon
  5. Wow, thanks L00b. I'll be doing these. ---------- Post added 09-10-2013 at 12:19 ---------- The H&M catalogue actually has 'Welcome Mr Taylor' printed in full colour on the front cover. ---------- Post added 09-10-2013 at 12:27 ---------- I'm very careful about check-boxes. When I first moved to Sheffield I had the misfortune to land a job at a place called Data and Media Research (DMRi) who specialise in data-gathering websites. The information they gather is assembled into comma-delimited-files and sales staff sell it on to whoever will pay for it. I was contracted as a web-developer there. I'm glad I don't work for them anymore. I even read terms and conditions before signing up to anything. As a result, I use very few online services. It's very important to me that the internet can be used safely, especially since I will have my own children in the future and want the same for them. This is my motivation, and I am seeing this through to the end. If it turns out that I am indeed the victim of a fraud-attack then I hope to see the perpetrators incarcerated
  6. I have been receiving catalogues addressed to me that I haven't signed up for: H&M catalogue Christianity Magazine Marks and Spencer catalogue I am not normally a suspicious person, but in this case I suspect that somebody may have signed me up for these (possibly as a prank. I don't know), as they all arrived this weekend, and I am certain that both H&M and M&S require you to fill out a form before they will send out a catalogue. I have no idea about Christianity Magazine though, as I had never heard of them before yesterday, but they do want a subscription payment from me. I'd presume that I would have been signed up via the internet, and since all activity is traceable by IP address via the ISP, the person responsible should be fairly straight-forward to discover. Does anyone have any experience of this type of thing? Should I inform the police? I simply want it to stop, and if someone is disclosing my private details to companies without my consent then I think that their behaviour needs to be addressed. I presume that signing forms on the behalf of others against their wishes is illegal in some way. Is there anything I can do?
  7. I want the users of this forum to take a deep breath and think carefully before they submit their comments. Scanning through this thread, I can't help but be ashamed to see such evolved, intelligent people branding anything so dated as their torches and pitchforks. This is a sad sight to see, especially in this day and age. I can't see how such behaviour solves any of the issues that you claim to fight for, but I do see how it can encourage the children that look up to you to grow up fierce and unpredictable. Personally, I am not necessarily in support of the automatic pay-rise scheme, but I feel that it is the teacher's prerogative to strike against anything that threatens their future. If I were in the same boat then I would do the very same thing, and in any case, I don't see sense in depriving anyone their entitlement regardless of anything I would do given the circumstances. The main problem I see is that the kids are tossed out in the street while the strike is in event. I think that the well-being of the children requires more careful consideration during strike action, and that should be the issue not the pay.
  8. Will this be on this year too? I missed last year. Will feed cake.
