Chesterfield Discussion / Re: Creepy but fantastic storm
« on: September 20, 2016, 11:32:52 PM »
I was out of the country but heard about the storm.
Someone I know were struck by lightening.

It hit the telephone wire and bounced off onto the TV ariel.

Blew a TV up, blacked all the plug sockets - very frightening.
They have no landline.
Not got all the details as we were away but will be speaking to them tomorrow. -

Is it an 'Act of God' - or will the insurance Company pay up?

Likewise Umpire and redadmiral.

Did anyone else have to take a spoon, dish and plate to school parties ?

I reckon some of the undesirable sites should have charge EVERYTIME a person wants to log into it and the money sent to charity.

It's not just Chesterfield it's wherever we go.

We have just returned from  a few days in York for daughters birthday.

There are people ( both sexes ) in doorways with sleeping bags many have dogs.
How the heck can they afford  to feed a dog? Some looked spaced out.

I didn't feel threatened by any of them.

However I was under threat as I found out - by a youth on a Skate Board!

Now at this point I want to swear as my injured foot/ankle is in a support stocking :-X

What happened?
We had just got off a tour bus and turned to walk towards the Jorvik Centre to see and young man ( college student/ 6th form age ) racing towards us on a skate board.
I was horrified as he was heading directly for my daughter who was in her wheelchair.
Seconds before he was due to collide with her he jumped off the skate board which then shot into my ankle at the front of my leg.
Instantly cutting, bruising it and a rapid swelling.

I was not happy, told him off and told him to look what he had done - what he said to me -----
'You shouldn't have been in MY way'  >:( >:(

My hubby was NOT happy!

Can I ask what you chaps on here would have done had it been your wife/partner ??

No - we ladies are not too bad at all, as long as he who must obey just remembers to do just that.
There are some very large Kennels out there to be had  ;)

School milk at play times - drank from those little bottles, it was lovely.
Thanks for bringing that memory back geebee  (y)

The old saying 'what goes around comes around' springs to mind.

I agree with fly about the facebook groups.

At the moment local history photographs are very popular but there are only so many around - what then?
Obviously that is just an example and there will be others which will carry on but only as long as the people in the group remain interested.
I also find that others will send 'friend requests' just because you are in the same group and 'get on when airing topics'

However on a forum like this people are more guarded about sharing their personal life.

I've been a member on here for  quite awhile now ( in fact I reckon I may have fossilized  :-? )
I've always tried not to offend other members and to be honest this hasn't been a forum which has had many problems like that.
It's always been well moderated.

There may not be many of us posting at the moment but the ones who do post decent stuff - quality not quantity can pay off and as fly says - he's not ready to give up on it yet
Quite right too Bazza  MD (y)

Do you still buy flowers for your partner or wife for her birthday? Go out for a romantic meal with candle flicking away on the table and getting merry with the wine? Or splash out for naughty weekend away? Or just end up like me in the doghouse on a regularly basis?

yes just like you my hubby ends up in the dog house on a regular basis  (y)

For children there is a monitoring option these days which I used.
It will block sites which are adult only.
I set up several accounts for different children all with their own passwords which only the child and myself knew - if they changed the password i could still get onto their site as the administrator - parents need to take more responsibility !

I think it is probably very difficult to monitor what anyone is putting around the net as it is an 'open network' Millions will be using it - how does anyone control that?

How long is a piece of string ?
Everyone will have a different answer. We could argue the toss all day about what is acceptable or not.

Look at Facebook for example. Beheading videos are allowed. But boob shots aren't.
Cock in a sock photos were allowed, but my mates shot got removed because he'd got a daffodil between his arse cheeks LOL  :))
