  1. Sorry I can’t help you with your Dad, but if you go onto Google Maps, Street View you should be able to see what the area looks like now.
  2. On a few occasions when in Ikea restaurant at Gateshead I’ve seen obese adults with obese children under the age of 12 and I do mean obese, the adults struggle to walk because they are grossly overweight. Is it neglect allowing the children to be overweight the same as the parents? I agree with Al, I also like unhealthy fast food and chocolate but don’t eat it every day because it’s harmful to your health.
  3. Sorry I should have said I think the days of the UK sending soldiers to invade a Middle East country as we did in Iraq will not happen again. I can’t see China and Russia sitting back and allowing it to happen. But I could be wrong.
  4. I agree we need to be more self sufficient. The days of invading other countries I feel are over.
  5. The last time national service was made compulsory after the Second World War it was for young men only. Will it include women this time, that's if Rishi wins the next election.
  6. I’ve just watched this when the MP Craig Mackinlay who had his hands and feet amputated last year because of sepsis receive a standing ovation from all parties when he entered the House of Commons for the first time since his operation. For a few minutes the general election was forgotten and all parties appeared to come together praising him. What a brave man and enjoyed his speech.
  7. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes It’s a follow up to the Caesar trilogy. I enjoyed it, there’s some beautiful scenery in the film. 7/10
  8. There’s a lot of Tories standing down, is it because they’ve conceded that they are not going to win the next general election? The majority of people I know who voted for the Tories at the last general election say they won’t be voting for them this time round and a few are also saying they will not be voting for Labour. Has Rishi Sunak called a general election to avoid a leadership challenge? I thought he would have waited until interest rates started to come down.
  9. All the very best Thug Life and as already said keep posting and let us know how you get on. St Luke’s is one of the charities I support.
  10. The Tattooist of Auschwitz Based on a true story. I couldn’t watch some of the six episodes all the way through, not because of poor acting, which was very good, I found it to harrowing to watch in parts. You can feel the helplessness and despair of the prisoners in Auschwitz. It’s a reminder of how many people passed through the gates and never came out again.
  11. I’ve had corned beef for my tea, no problems opening the tin. However I think if Padders tried to open the tin he would probably break the key half way round the tin and end up sawing through the tin with a knife.

  13. It might be a lot easier if you bought Greggs Steak Bakes, no tins to wrestle with only a packet.
  14. I do like the aromatic smells when bread is being baked in the oven. So I would like to work in a Sheffield micro bakery shop that makes its own bread.
  15. Yes I’m sure Padder’s will be trying his best to log on.
  16. That was funny. I also hope the landlord starts to post soon. I was wondering if like me he had trouble trying to log onto the forum.
  17. Wetherspoons started out with one pub now there are hundreds throughout the UK. I can see Padder’s Bar opening more pubs and being a series competitor for Wetherspoons in the future with all this exposure on The Sheffield Forum.
  18. The Chief Executive has seen his pay double to £10 million after improvements in the supermarkets performance. Tax profits has risen to £2.3 billion in its annual report. With food prices still increasing I’m not surprised profits are the highest in more than a decade. I’m not saying the supermarket’s haven’t had problems because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and a few other things but I think they have been doing some profiteering and using the cost of living crisis to increase food knowing people have no option but to pay there prices for just the basics. It does make you wonder what the supermarkets will do in the future if they want to raise there profits further.
  19. I haven’t watched all of the singers so far. Didn’t like the winning song as for the UK we’ve sent worse singers to the Eurovision. I thought the Israel girl wasn’t bad, I’m pleased politics was kept out of it and other countries did vote for her.
  20. I agree with mafya about a nanny state. At times I think health and safety has gone a bit to far.
  21. I haven’t watched the show yet. Will probably watch some of it tonight. It’s just a shame that politics and governments can’t be kept out of the Eurovision Song Contest. The Israeli girl was confined to her hotel room when not on stage because of death threats, pleased she came in the top 5.
  22. I was told near where I live the sea front of Tynemouth and Whitley Bay there was a lot of skygazers waiting for the Northern Lights, people were standing and sitting on the sand. The first night, Friday, a relative said the aurora was beautiful it was glowing over St Mary’s Lighthouse at Whitley Bay but I was told it was disappointing the second night. Wished I had made an effort to watch it.
  23. I feel there is something spiritual about the photo. I don’t know much about photography but that is very good, you have definitely captured the moment.
  24. I know a lady who had a blood clot in her arm which went to her heart after having the Astrazeneca vaccine, she was in hospital for a few weeks. She blamed the vaccine.
