  1. Let me get this right, it was unacceptable for interest rates to be high when you had a mortgage, but now you are mortgage free, you are complaining that the interest rates are too low and does not benefit you?
  2. I don't think he/she should should have disclosed that information with you 😕
  3. Binged on a few box sets since lockdown. Breaking Bad Narcos Making a Murderer Narcos Mexico Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich The Last Dance
  4. Hi! I am glad someone does The class of 2003. Wow - 17 years since registering on here. That really does make me feel old
  5. Hello - I remember you from days of old
  6. There's already a boat builder based alongside the canal, not too far from the old Hilton hotel.
  7. How do you know this if you do not have access to the account details?
  8. I ended up mohawking mine. Shaved to bone down sides and left a nice strip on top. Staying like that until I return to civilisation.
  9. I do hope this was an attempt at humour?
  10. I dare you to go to China and protest against the government there... I think you'll soon find out why Greta Thunberg hasn't been there and done it.
  11. The government have said time and again that there are no shortages and that the public should shop as normal. So, how have they caused this panic?
  12. How could they ever plan for something like this? Do you just expect them to magic stock, staff and resources out of thin air?
  13. Just because they have not left anything to the family doesn't necessarily mean a lack of planning. It might be they chose not to leave anything to the family.
  14. No they are not. They are not making medical decisions at all so stop being such a drama llama. All they are doing is signposting you to the relevant healthcare professional/service based on the information you give. Your choice, but don't expect to get anywhere quick with that kind of attitude.
  15. Nothing. Everything, whether good or bad, happens for a reason. Instead, I would rather concentrate my energy doing all the good stuff from now until death.
  16. Surely, you would just wait inside the station and venture out once your lift arrives? The big issue with the current design is that it's totally inadequate. The bay has a low capacity (8 or so cars) so unless this is either re-designed or enforcement is applied (probably by the installation of barriers similar to those that operate at Manchester Airport) then it will always be a major issue.
  17. It really isn't that important so I will give it a miss.
  18. Anyone got a pic of it so we can judge for ourselves without having to wander down the Moor?
  19. I suppose it's easy to make that call when it's not going to lose you thousands of pounds.
  20. Probably the safest place to be in that area. The flood barriers should keep the water away. Even if they were allowed out, where would they go? The roads are either flooded or at a standstill with traffic.
  21. It could be if the river(s) break their banks. Luckily, at present, it appears to be mainly surface water, so fingers crossed. However, I believe the forecast for the next few days is rain so it's not looking promising.
  22. When I was talking about the competition of local cities, I was referring to places such as York, Lincoln and Harrogate. Sheffield could never truly compete with such places (as these places sell themselves) for tourist numbers. However, you mention Manchester and Leeds... both these cities are probably more successful in marketing and attracting more tourists for a number of reasons. Unlike Sheffield, which is only world famous for being a place of industrial excellence, the other two cities are world famous (more so in Manchester's case) due to years of exposure with successful football teams etc. Furthermore, both these cities have easy access to the world via their airports making them easier to visit for foreign tourists. Sheffield can compete with the likes of Manchester and Leeds for tourists, much more than the other places, however we cannot pretend that it will magically happen over night. It will take time and a lot of investment to reinvent the city. The city is slowly getting there and articles like this indicate that https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/united-kingdom/england/yorkshire/sheffield/articles/Is-Sheffield-Britains-most-underrated-city-break-destination/
