Chesterfield Discussion / Danesmoor
« on: May 08, 2017, 07:57:52 PM »
Has anyone been down Danesmoor near where the Bottom Pub used to be?

I've driven past today and the homes they are building are 'Red'?

Will they clad them? Not sure I like them left like that but as I was driving I couldn't get a proper look at what they were doing.

Thank you Barry.

It's been hard work I have to admit as unfortunately we had a holiday booked when the resignation was tendered on our Parish Council.
I was asked to stand and obviously accepted.

Keith and I worked hard pre- holiday and other members carried on whilst we were absent.

On returning we had one day to turn things around at home and thereafter walked for about four hours each day delivering leaflets etc until Thursday when elections were held.

My day was spent there on a 'meet and greet' basis and it was great to see and speak to so many people who I've known all my life but lost contact with mainly because my work is the kind which can isolate a little.

I know I've a quirky sense of humour  ;) but the other side of me is very different and I reckon you will know that  :)

I'm overwhelmed with the results three candidates stood and I got 50% of the votes!

Anyway I am now officially signed up to serve the people in our village - and I will give my all for that!  (y)

So who has bought it ?

Chesterfield Discussion / Up date on the Chesterfield Hotel anyone?

Does anyone know what is now happening to this hotel?
I've heard it has been sold and the 'for sale' signs have been taken down.

What's happening with it??

Fun Stuff / Postman Pats last Day
« on: April 09, 2017, 07:57:22 AM »

It was Postman Pat's last day on the job after
35 years of carrying the mail through all kinds of weather
to the same villages and towns...
When he arrived at the first house on his route,
he was greeted by the whole family there, who all hugged
and congratulated him and sent him on his way with a
cheque for £50.

At the second house they presented him an 18-carat gold watch.
The folks at the third house handed him a bottle of 15-year old Scotch whisky.

At the fourth house he was met at the door by a blonde in her lingerie.
She took him by the arm and led him up the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had ever experienced.
When they went downstairs, the blonde fixed him a full
English breakfast: Bacon,Eggs, Sausage & Tomato
with freshly squeezed orange juice.
As she was pouring him a cup of steaming coffee,
he noticed a one pound coin in the saucer.
'All this is just too wonderful for words,' he said, 'but what's the quid for?'
'Well,' said the blonde,'Last night, I told my husband that today would be your last day and that we should do something special for you.
I asked him what I should give you'.
He said, 'F**k him.. Give him a quid.'

 She smiled shyly and said, 'The breakfast was my idea.'          :)

Fun Stuff / Adam wanted to Know
« on: April 09, 2017, 07:54:00 AM »

God said, "Adam, I want you to do
something for Me."

Adam said, "Gladly, Lord, what do You want me to do?"

God said, "Go down into that
Adam said, "What's a valley?"

God explained it to him. Then God said, "Cross the river.."

Adam said, "What's a river?"

God explained that o him, and then said, "Go over to the hill...."

Adam said, "What is a hill?"

So, God explained to Adam what a hill was. He told Adam, "On the other side of the hill you will find a cave."

Adam said, 'What's a cave?'

After God explained, He said, "In the cave you will find a woman."

Adam said, "What's a woman?'

So God explained that to him, too.. Then, God said, 'I want you
to reproduce."

Adam said, "How do I do that?"

God first said (under His breath), "Geez....."

And then, just like everything else, God explained that toAdam, as

So, Adam goes down into the valley, across the river, and over the hill, into the cave, and finds the woman.

Then, in about five minutes, he was back.

God, His patience wearing thin, said angrily, "What is it now?"

And Adam said....









"What's a headache?"


Fun Stuff / Rude Customers
« on: April 09, 2017, 07:50:14 AM »

 For  all Who Work With Rude Customers, isn't it a  shame WE can't actually do  this!

An  award should go to the Virgin Airlines desk  attendant in   Sydney some months ago  for being smart and funny, while making her  point, when confronted with a passenger who  probably deserved to fly as cargo.

A  crowded Virgin flight was cancelled after  Virgin's 767s had been withdrawn from service. A  single attendant was re-booking a long line of  inconvenienced travellers. Suddenly an angry  passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped  his ticket down on the counter and said,
"I  HAVE to be on this flight and it HAS to be FIRST  CLASS".

The attendant  replied,  "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help  you, but I've got to help these people first,  and I'm sure we'll be able to work something  out.."

The  passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so  that the passengers behind him could  hear,"DO  YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

Without  hesitating, the attendant smiled and grabbed her  public address microphone:"May  I have your attention please, may I have your  attention please,"she began  - her voice heard clearly throughout the  terminal.

"We  have a passenger here at Desk 14 WHO DOES NOT  KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his  identity, please come to Desk  14."

With  the folks behind him in line laughing  hysterically, the man glared at the Virgin  attendant, gritted his teeth and  said,"F...  You!"

Without  flinching, she smiled and said, (I love this  bit)"I'm  sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for  that too."

I saw the workmen installing them the other day whilst at work - and I thought what the hell is that and what does it signify?
Well now I know - it seems to signify the proximity of the river Rother and the cycle route.
To be fair,whilst I'm not going to moan about the waste of money etc., I think it could prove to be dangerous in some ways.
Time will tell I suppose. Apart from that, it just looks like random bits of offshoot metal cuts bolted to the floor.
Whatever next :-?

Totally agree with your comments scimitar. To me they are total nothingness ( if there is any such word ) if not I'll say crap instead!
Another point is who on earth would link that load of twisted metal with the river and cycling?????

Well !
What next!

To me these look like bent bits of Tin !

Does anyone like them at a cost of five grand I'm sure they could have done better!!


Would someone like to explain how this junction is different from how it was before the works. (Yes I know there's no right turn whilst there's roadworks on the main Derby Rd).

Now come on fly - you didn't really expect it to be any different did you - this is Chesterfield  :))

Tarzan - some pedestrians will just do as some motorists do and ignore the signs  ::)

Whats your hubby going to use now you've filled the tin bath ?

The hose Pipe like he usually does -  ::)

Friends called to visit on Friday and told us the roundabout was bad. They witnessed a car driver and lorry driver in conflict on the roundabout - the lorry driver had got out of his cab to go to the car driver.  :-?
Drivers are going to get frustrated with other at times aren't they !
