How great are the savings on items reduced then, are they a practically 'give away' or just 'run of the mill' sale prices.

So pleased I shopped yesterday, certainly wouldn't have liked to have been in Tesco's today or any other shop with these sales on.
Turns humans into animals !!

Ok folks can someone fill me in on this.
Where has it come from?
What is at all about?
Did we have one last year?

I have switched on the news this morning to see people half demented in the shops after bargains?
Don't we have the January Sales anymore then?

General Discussion / Re: Lee Rigby was His Death Preventable?

I can identify with ironsky's comments, although I don't share them as there are good and bad in every religion, also I was involved at one time with a lovely muslim family for my work. We all got on very well.

When I say I can identify with ironsky's statement I meant that my late father had a deep dislike for all Jews. This stemmed from his time spent overseas in the second WW. I think my fathers experiences and encounters went very deep and he just couldn't forgive for what he and his comrades went through.

My grandfather also had a complete dislike for the Irish, I never did know why as this for him was totally out of character, he was such a kind mild mannered and quiet person. I can only surmise it was because of what was happening in Ireland at that time.

Ironsky has told us he was in Iraq we know how bad that was for our men/women. We as civvies won't have a clue and can only guess.
Sometimes things happen and the hurt and anger go very deep.

Maybe this why ironsky feels this way.

Sorry ironsky, I'm just guessing on your behalf.

I don't think the forces can be completely protected over here from this kind of thing.
This was a very unfortunate incident which sadly cost the life of Lee, how can 'all of them' be protected around the clock even with a for warning on the net?
We are supposed to be a 'free country' to move around as we wish.
The murdering bullies shouldn't be allowed to win by our authorities by containing where and when our forces people can go.
Maybe a tightening up of who come into our country and eradicating others back to where they came from would help.

This may sound odd, but I feel sad for the Muslims living in this country who are decent people and do not agree with this - what shame they must feel about others who are worse than animals and Muslim.

Two Houses OC - built up to roof level - timbers on etc.

Flipping heck!
Do you think it's a bit close to the pub? Being higher up in your seat on the bus you will get a better look than I got.
I was wondering if they were taking the pub down initially, but looking on their website it seems a lively enough place.

I drove past the Woodthorpe on Coupe Lane a couple of weeks ago.
Couldn't lokk to much but there is a building going up very close to it - too close to be a dwelling place I would have thought as it appeared to be partly in the Woodthorpe car park or seating area.
Seems strange to build so close to a pub.

Politics / Re: No More Deaths from Fuel Poverty

There is an amount ( fuel allowance ) paid to pensioners.
100 each for a couple
300.00 for the over 80's
There is also the warm homes discount scheme which people with disabilities can apply for this is only linked in with certain benefits, the amount if given is paid into the utility account is about 145.00.
People need to apply for this, it is not an automatic pay out.
Obviously because of the cost we pay to suppliers these amounts are not enough.

The run to Matlock was daily for me when hubby had his business there, we have seen some wonderful sights in the sky.

Review of the x17 Sheffield service by the infamous Ironsky2.  Been to Sheffield today and there for used the new style x17 buses. First impressions of the bus itself it has a upmarket feel to it with bule real leather seating and has carpeting under the windows with a gold patten on it. The bus itself is basically like the old buses used on this route but more de lux surrounding wise. The driver was on time the new bus driver uniform is more presentable than the other one used for other services therefore an improvement. Overall a good service but one irritating feature of this bus is the TV screen fixed onto the wall next to the stairs it wears thin to see one self ten times on TV I understand its for security but it draws your attention to it during your journey most of the time if we must have a TV at least show a decent film on it!                         

Good for me to top up the lippy then eh  ;)
