May well do that Simon, never thought about it to be honest.
The incident yesterday with the van really shook hubby up.

Really sad if this does happen, most of us love to see the Vulcan and others flying over. As ever it comes down to money!

Did you get his registration number, you could report him. Bloody wasps  ;D

Don't think wasps have number plates do they fly  ;D

As for the van driver, hubby said it was a left hand drive, but i ended up just to his back right hand side!
The car driver in front who was following me obviously saw what happened and he kindly stayed where he was to let me back onto the route i was going.

Chesterfield Discussion / Anyone enjoy a takeaway Pizza?
« on: September 02, 2015, 01:48:47 PM »
Two thirds of ham and cheese pizzas tested in a recent investigation by our trading standards team failed to contain ham or cheese.

We're now issuing reminders to Derbyshire food businesses warning them that they could face prosecution under the Food Safety Act if they do not describe food correctly or properly label it for sale.

Between January and March this year trading standards officers visited 15 takeaways across the county and took away samples of pizzas containing ham and cheese for testing. As well as testing the cheese and ham for substitution, officers also checked salt levels.

Of the samples tested:

eight were found to contain a mixture of cheese and cheese substitute in place of 100% cheese
five contained turkey ham in place of ham
one pizza contained salt higher than the recommended amount.
Our trading standards team is also investigating a supplier who misled a business by claiming they were selling real cheese when further tests revealed it was a mixture of cheese and cheese substitute.

Our Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Dave Allen said:

"It's important that we keep consumers safe from any misleading or false information when it comes to what's in their food.

I buy them from supermarkets - but maybe they are the same????

To the white van man who was obviously in the wrong lane at the Tesco roundabout - it's Ok to be in the wrong lane - i am sure most have us have done it. However it's NOT OK to then move over to the right straight in front of me. I was clearly indicating LEFT! Had i not anticipated what you were about to do you would have shoved me right across into the middle of the island - MORON.
What you SHOULD have done was carry on to the next roundabout and come back down the bypass - IDIOT  >:(

To the woman in the car - when I am indicating right THAT IS MY WAY OF COMMUNICATING TO YOU - it means - guess what ???
i am actually GOING TO TURN RIGHT over the hump near Tesco's Clay Cross AND GO INTO THE SHOPPING AREA/ GP'S ETC. - Not LEFT into Tesco's !!
Not left - !!

Finally to the friggin wasp which stung me in Tesco's - when I next see you -YOUR DEAD!!  >:

Entertainment / 3rd September - Tibshelf Oil Well
« on: September 01, 2015, 10:34:30 AM »
Did you know that the first inland oil well in England was in Derbyshire 100 years ago? It was in Tibshelf and produced 6500 tons of the runny black stuff (as opposed to the solid black stuff usually associated with the area). The well is still in existence at the Oil well Nursery on Chesterfield Road just outside Tibshelf.

This Thursday the Tupton Local History Society will host Cliff Lee, who will give an illustrated presentation about TIBSHELF OIL. This will be at 7:00 pm at St John's Church on Queen Victoria Road in New Tupton. Entrance price is only 2 and this includes refreshments and a raffle.

Come along and join us!

General Discussion / Has Britain's traditional Sunday Roast Gone
« on: August 30, 2015, 10:01:11 AM »
I have to admit to not always following tradition with our Sunday Roast at home these days.
We sometimes ditch the home cooked roast and go and eat out after walking or browsing the shops.
It's not so important as it used to be.
Anyone else ditched theirs?
