  1. The coin is manufactured by Zenith Coins and will be available for only one week.
  2. I suppose for a treat one could always let the goldfish have a turn swimming in the bath, but you'd have to take the coal out first/.. And if you've been taken in by the "If it's safe in water, it's safe in Lux" hype. It's the spin dryer that kills them.
  3. The shop was impulse. At the corner used to be the Albert Pub, (The Cole Brothers building was built on the site of the Albert Hall which burnt down in the 1930s). Just up Division Street was a former car showroom which became a burger restaurant opened by the brothers(?) who had the Chuck Ranch at Hillsborough.
  4. Could you have gone up the steps by Bacon Lane and then to the Woodbourne Hotel?
  5. I don't know if it will be mentioned in Mike Higginbottom's brilliant talk "Demolished Sheffield" next Monday 11th March at the Upper Wincobank Chapel, Wincobank Avenue S5 6BB (bus route 95/95A) .6-30 for 7pm.
  6. Hallam set a new record in the FA Vase the other week.
  7. Avoid interacting with pop-ups Unless you’re confident that they are a legitimate ad, avoid interacting with pop-ups or webpages that seem to take over your screen. If you see an annoying pop-up ad in Safari, you can go to the Search field and enter a new URL or search term to browse to a new site. If you don’t see the Search field on your iPhone or iPad, tap the top of the screen to make it appear. Some pop-ups and ads have fake buttons that resemble a close button, so use caution if you try to close a pop-up or ad. If you're not sure, avoid interacting with it and close the Safari window or tab. On your Mac, you can quit Safari, then press and hold the Shift key while opening Safari. This prevents Safari from automatically reopening any windows or tabs that were open.
  8. Does it really matter what certificate the BBFC give a film of this vintage? I doubt the film would be shown in a cinema these days (where BBFC classification would be needed), but it could be seen on TV.
  9. This was the furthest Hallam had reached in the FA Vase; the previous record was the 4th round. To go out on penalties was a sickener, but to force the game to penalties was an achievement, Heroes all, Boldly going where no Hallam team had gone before. And attracting good gates for that level. Ten year ago they were lucky to get triple figures. Well played Hallam! p.s. They're at home Tuesday night.
  10. It took me over an hour to get from Meadowhall to Firth Park this evening. I started the journey at just after five and it was gone six when I reached home.
  11. Cirata shares have lost something like 95% of their value in the past 12 months...
  12. It saddens me to see this is a story in the Daily Mail. I was hoping it might be a Sheffield Forum exclusive.
  13. Is there any reason why a referee, after looking at the monitor, can use his common sense and suggest the VAR is misguided?
  14. I was at a match recently where a player was sin-binned by the referee. In my opinion anything which makes it easier to understand what's happening is a good thing. (Though the referee should not have disallowed the 'goal').
  15. A surge in the Hydrogen market could be good for ITM in Sheffield.
  16. I sometimes wonder if anyone graduated from Central University...
  17. Now that Darren Moore is leaving Huddersfield, maybe he's after the Liverpool job. Wasn't there a former Huddersfield manager in charge at Liverpool years ago?
  18. Can you use a Type 1 charger for Type 2? Yes, there are adapters available that allow you to charge a Type 2 EV using a Type 1 charging point. These adapters typically have a Type 1 (male) plug on one end and a Type 2 (female) connector on the other, which allows you to plug your Type 2 EV charging cable into a Type 1 charging point.18 Jan 2
  19. It's a pity that there is no universal sign language that could be taught. BSL is fine for the UK, but what about other countries? Does the country have enough teachers to teach BSL?
  20. No! If you're sending cards, you might need to put the card in the envelope and lick the envelope to seal it. Of course, if you wish to lick your received cards, make sure they don't come with glitter. (Not Gary!)
  21. You've not mentioned the practice of selecting different views of the place so that there were no duplications - not that the recipients would ever see anyone else's card. Can't write more - I'm doing my Christmas cards...
  22. Should Sheffield Eagles get promoted to the top tier, their admittance would depend on having a suitable stadium with at least 5000 capacity. Even after promotion, I'd be surprised if they would attract 3000. One point that hasn't been mentioned is that during the week the car park at the new development would be used as a park and ride which should ease the congestion through Woodseats. The suggestion of redeveloping Hallam FC's ground would mean losing the cricket pitch and levelling the football pitch which has a pronounced slope away from the road. They certainly don't have the space up there for a Meadowhead typr development.
  23. I'm waiting to see the first shop to have a sign in the window advertising: "Three Santas - No Waiting"
  24. Tickets available via https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/thelanternsheff/boeing-boeing/e-jgljvb
