Chesterfield Discussion / fun in the Summer break
« on: July 22, 2014, 02:04:40 PM »
There may just be something in this link which you may enjoy doing with your children/grandchildren during the summer break

 New Tupton Village Carnival is this coming Saturday July 26th the  Procession starts from Ford street at 1 pm

The person has now started a Blog it's very new and I'm sure he will add more to it.

The caption's are to depict the way disabled people can can be found work by this government through the eyes of the cartoonist.

The 'Dreaded ESA50!!' which I am currently filling in on behalf of my daughter is truly 'conning' and little wonder so many have struggled.
Daughters is about finished and ready for printing now - but - if I hadn't done some office work in the past setting this out would have been impossible for me - They knew what they were doing!!

I'm sure these captions will soon be very popular.  ;)

Our lolipop lady has had a letter advising her she could be finished by next April.
She wasn't sure who would do this important job as we have two school crossing to the junior school, wonder if it will be passed onto to a teacher for at least one of them.
I can't imagine that going down very well if this is the case - either way 'someone' has to be paid for it.

Very like this (though this one is American). As my Dad never threw anything away I wouldn't be surprised if one of his great grandchildren isn't using it now. I musy have driven thousands of miles with that wheel!

Pam - Dad started off at RAF Lakenheath, then RAF Cardington, RAF Strubby, RAF Khormaskar, RAF Masirah, RAF Greenham Common, RAF Lyneham, RAF Bruggen, RAF Laarbruch (I've probably forgotten a few). The funny thing was, he was a civilian though given the honorary rank of Squadron Leader from Lyneham onwards. He finally worked with the army in Germany - honorary Major...

I was actually a child when he was in many of his postings Dave, but I remember he did three year stints abroad and in the UK. We went over to stay with them when he was in Malta he was also in Singapore I seem to think he maybe stayed there 6 years though.
They lived a different life to us that I do know.

Any age Slacker, is Subbuteo still on the shelves then?

As I got old enough to read I enjoyed reading  Polyanna, Jo's Boys and any Enid Blyton books - not forgetting Huffy Puffy the train

Chesterfield Discussion / Old court house and Q.P annex fires
« on: July 21, 2014, 12:03:46 PM »
Just noticed this in the D.T. They are thinking both fires were deliberate!

The Q.P Leisure Centre will still be open today as the fire was in a building at the side.

You are right Fly it's not jesting but reality from the eyes of the disabled.
Just wish I could post some of the others.
Any idea why when I click copy and try to paste on here nothing comes on?

oooppps I did put in in Politics  :-[

There are more but I'm having problems copying images?


I thought I would share these captions as they made me smile, some truth behind the jesting though as to what this government may expect the sick and disabled to do work wise.  ;)

Decided not to put it in Politics as it's tongue in cheek stuff

Below is the Blog

Boy am I having problems  :(

I have a hand written document I need to scan, copy ( larger than actual document and then print.

Just can't seem to get it larger except for once but then it took off a bit of the writing to th left side.

I'm not sending the original!
Can't seem to solve what I'm doing wrong.
Anyone advise me please?  :(

Mine was a plastic steering wheel that stuck on the dashboard of my Dad's car so that  I could 'steer'  just like him. I'd be propped up on cushions so I could see over the dashboard of his Austin A40 (this was back in the 1950s). We often drove all the way from Middlesex, my Mum's family home, to Lincolnshire, where he'd been posted to an RAF airfield, like that. He also used to let me sit on his lap and steer his car down the road where we lived - that's how my passion for cars started - thanks Dad!  :)

My uncle was in the airforce back then Dave flight LT I think, small world as they may have crossed paths back then.

My other love when young was dressing the cut out card board dolls with different clothes, they had little 'tabs' on them to hook over the dolls shoulders and sides.

Thunder and Lightening never bothers me, but I have to admit the lightening was lighting up the inside of  the house so I drew all the curtains.
Is it an old wives tale about moving the cutlery out of the way of windows?

Fun Stuff / Would you have Cosmetic Surgery?
« on: July 19, 2014, 10:42:30 PM »
Anyone had or would consider cosmetic surgery? If you had the money.
I wouldn't but many women have breast implants.
 Saggy faces are  tightened.
 Men as well as women pay more attention to their bodies.
So if you had the money what would YOU change?

Most of us would have had a favourite toy when children.
Mine was a walkiing doll. When I held her hands she would walk moving her head
On one occasion her eyes went into her head  :'( and mum sent her to the dolls hospital and had them fitted back in  :)
Anyone else had a favourite toy (Apart from Fly who likes Barbie Dolls )
