That's good to know Scmitar.
I traveled on a bus over the weekend into town and read the notices at the side of the space.
TBH I found them a bit contradictory - or it may have been how I was reading them?

The yellow said biggies could be put there and there was a black sign saying for wheelchair users only?
I think the problem would arise if a sleeping baby/ young child was parked up in the w/chair space and parent having to take them out fold up the buggy and store it?

What would be your decision on that scenario?

Sorry to put you on the spot - TBH I wouldn't like to make that decision, it's a no win for the drivers IMO?

If you don't mind Gerty, I'm going to Hijack your thread as I have a camera and it's printer which I'm thinking of trying to sell.
Won't want much for it even though it's hardly been used.

I had an autograph album with many famous stars signatures in it.
A relative worked in a night club in America years ago where they frequented. He got the signatures.
His mum brought the autograph book back as a gift for me.
Among them were Elvis, Pat Boone, Fred Astair, Lucille Ball, John Wayne, Bing Crosby etc.
They are not worth much unless put on a photograph professionally I was told.

I also have a boxed singles album of the Beatles in mint condition.
Played them once only to record so I could listen to them.
 I checked up on the value a few years ago - seems it's the wrong colour box to be worth anything  ;D

Right. The first has got "Hard Days Night" feel about it. I wonder if it is.

Why don't you approach a Beatles memorabilia site about it?

That's what I was thinking Pete.

Big Fan of the Beatles back in their hey day.
The top one looks familiar - maybe from one of their films.

Fun Stuff / One for Pete the Pensioner - The Tax Man Calls
« on: December 11, 2014, 01:00:03 PM »


The Taxman decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the Tax office.

The taxman was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his accountant.

The taxman said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the tax office finds that believable.'

'I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration?'

The taxman thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.'

Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand pounds that I can bite my own eye.'

The taxman thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'

Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The taxman's jaw drops.

Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand pounds that I can bite my other eye.'

Now the taxman can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.

Grandpa removes his false teeth and bites his good eye.

The stunned taxman now realises he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's accountant as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

'Want to go double or nothing?', Grandpa asks? 'I'll bet you six thousand pounds that I can stand on this side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'

The taxman, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old man could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much pees all over the taxman's desk.

The taxman leaps with joy, realising that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.

But Grandpa's own accountant moans and puts his head in his hands.

'Are you okay?', the taxman asks.

'Not really,' says the accountant. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand pounds that he could come in here and piss all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!'

Finally got around to watching it - a different path/way of thinking/doing things sounds the start of a good plan to alter the thinking/doing in the UK.
Some BIG changes needed though - who would take that leap?

Techie Stuff / Re: USB Sticks
« on: December 10, 2014, 09:39:49 PM »
I'm a stickler for filing, need to keep things labelled and tidy it makes life easier.
I want to group daughters info onto the USB's so information is quick and easy to find ( and there's a lot of it!) if anyone has to take over from me in doing her paperwork - if that makes sense.
Hence wanting something to house the USB's.
Guess I'm just picky.

Techie Stuff / USB Sticks
« on: December 10, 2014, 01:55:45 PM »
I have an external hard drive, it's getting a bit old now and making a funny noise.
I'm transferring all my stuff from it onto USB sticks.
Some is mine and some is my daughters.
Is there anywhere in Chesterfield where I can buy a couple of containers to store the sticks in, I prefer not to just have them rattling around in a tin.
