Yes it is similar but doesn't take me eye as the Hady ones do - very unusual buildings

Yes fly and the roof is a different shape - I think they are lovely.
Someone has said they thought they were Dutch?

I have at the back of my mind that it was a Coal Board Estate but I have no idea who or when it was built.

Interesting Umpire, it's nothing like the Coal Board houses in our village which were concrete blocks. They've been titivated up in the last few years though.

Anyone know who built the houses and when on the Hady Estate?

Having only ever used the road at the side as a means to get from Calow to Hasland it's the first time I have been round the estate after dropping a friend off at her home.

The houses are 'quaint' -  different from what I have seen around Derbyshire.
Just intrigued by the history of them.

Sayings which Confucius DID NOT SAY.

Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.

Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.

Lady who goes camping must beware of evil intent.

Squirrel who runs up woman's leg will not find nuts.

Man who leaps off cliff jumps to conclusion.

Man who runs in front of car gets tired. Man who runs behind car gets exhausted.

Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.

Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.

It takes many nails to build a crib but only one screw to fill it.

Man who drives like hell is bound to get there.

Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.

Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement.

Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.

Finally CONFUCIUS DID SAY.. . ...

So now you have two slip mats - always come in handy Umpire.
Like you we are getting older now ( only our bodies though - not in our heads  ;) )

My hubby slipped getting 'out' of the bath - no slip mat as they are generally associated with showering.
He fell so hard he loosened the metal Grab Rail on the bath - yes he injured himself but not as drastic as your daughter did.
He was lucky. we had to have the grab rail repaired !!

Hoping your daughter has a speedy recovery with no lasting effects x

I always use shower mats bought from Boots.
They are pretty solid once down.

Sorry to hear about your daughters fall though and that wait was terrible wasn't it!!

Pleased it's done now and sure she will be on the mend soon x

The refresh seems to have sorted it.
I've got into my Microsoft account today.
Also bought another external Drive and intend to put all my history stuff in there.
Too many hours of work to lose it.

Just trying to send them to an external hard drive. I've spent quite a while going through all three of my external drives and reckon I have all the photo's in them.
So -- I've deleted them out of the small laptop just now.
Since I refreshed it last night it's worked better but I think there may be a Microsoft problem as it won't let me log in even after I reset my password

Every file I try it says it's too long to 'download' - even just one photo.
Have put it on a refresh today but it's still doing it.

I have a problem with my small laptop now - think they are taking it in turns to frustrate me !  >:(

When my main lap tops hard drive was faulty I transferred all my files into the small laptop as well as ( I think ) an external  hard drive.

Anyway to cut it short I want to move all the files out of small laptop onto another external hard drive - but it won't transfer it?

I think the memory is getting full and want to delete all my stuff in the small laptop -

Any ideas.

Shared with me on my facebook page by Cllr David Hancock.
I'm not plugging the Lib Dems just thought some may be interested.

Just back home after attending the anti-fracking meeting at Marsh Lane. Understandably a lot of very concerned residents at the possibility of fracking taking place right on our own doorstep.

The Liberal Democrats oppose fracking - we believe fossil fuels should stay in the ground, while we invest in renewable energies. So we're fully behind the residents in opposing fracking in Derbyshire (and everywhere else).

The advice I must give to everyone is that applications for fracking can only be prevented under planning application rules. So the fact that all the residents and politicians oppose it becomes irrelevant at that stage. Residents need to object on such grounds as traffic, access, parking, noise/light pollution, conservation issues etc (a quick google search will turn up a full list).

Our Chair and I went to a presentation by Ineos a couple of months back and pretty much the whole of North East Derbyshire is potentially rich pickings for them - so if it's an area that concerns you get in touch with us and we will support where we can.
