The missus bought a Paperback,
down Shepton Mallet way,
I had a look inside her bag;...
T'was "Fifty Shades of Grey".

Well I just left her to it,
And at ten I went to bed.
An hour later she appeared;
The sight filled me with dread.

In her left hand she held a rope;
And in her right a whip!
She threw them down upon the floor,
And then began to strip.

Well fifty years or so ago;
I might have had a peek;
But Mabel hasn't weathered well;
She's eighty four next week!!

Watching Mabel bump and grind;
Could not have been much grimmer.
And things then went from bad to worse;
She toppled off her Zimmer!

She struggled back upon her feet;
A couple minutes later;
She put her teeth back in and said
"I am a dominator!!"

Now if you knew our Mabel,
You'd see just why I spluttered,
I'd spent two months in traction
For the last complaint I'd uttered.

She stood there nude and naked
Bent forward just a bit
I went to hold her, sensual like
and stood on her left tit!

Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out;
My God what had I done!
She moaned and groaned then shouted out:
"Step on the other one!!"

Well readers, I can tell no more;
Of what occurred that day.
Suffice to say my jet black hair,
Turned fifty shades of grey!!

General Discussion / Nutella Jar starts House Fire
« on: February 24, 2015, 12:51:59 PM »
How easy it is to unwittingly cause a house fire!
A few rubber bands stored in a jar which was left on the windowsill !!

Who would have thought it, and to add to it their dog perished in the house fire.

A reminder to us all to think more about what we do.

Chesterfield Discussion / Solar farms in Derbyshire
« on: February 24, 2015, 11:51:40 AM »
Sounds like a good idea when they put it like this.

Local residents are set to be asked their views on proposals to build solar farms at several of our sites.

We've identified six possible locations in the North East and Amber Valley areas, for the project.

The proposals are to set up a series of ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) sites − better known as solar farms on land we own which is currently underused. This includes former colliery or underused agricultural land unsuitable for growing crops.

Initial investigations have identified the following sites for potential development:

agricultural land at Swathwick Lane, Swathwick, Wingerworth
Westthorpe Hills, former Westthorpe Colliery
land at Pye Bridge, Alfreton
former Swanwick Colliery reclamation land
agricultural land at Mansfield Road, Temple Normanton
former Williamthorpe Colliery
The idea is that solar panels, which would be installed in the ground, generate electricity from the sun. An energy supplier then pays us for each unit of electricity produced with extra payments if the electricity is then exported to the National Grid.

The project, which is being put forward in partnership with the Association for Public Sector Excellence (APSE) − an organisation that supports local authorities to deliver energy schemes − is in its early stages.

Further feasibility studies would still need to be carried out. If any of the sites get the go-ahead they could be up and running by March 2016.

But before any of the locations can be considered further, local residents are to be asked their views.

Next week (Tuesday 3 March), Cabinet will be asked to approve plans to consult on the initiative. If agreed, details of the consultation will be announced shortly.

Councillor John Owen, Deputy Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said:

"These sites are not currently being put to their best use and turning them into solar panel farms could offer great potential to generate income for the council and so help protect services.
"Generally, these proposed sites are already screened off, in out of the way areas and in most cases are not overlooked. And largely they tend not to be of much environmental interest. In some cases they could provide a good opportunity to improve the local conservation."

Councillor Owen added:

"We have made a public commitment in our Climate Change Charter to invest in renewable energy technologies to help reduce our negative impact on climate change and provide local, green sources of energy.

Last night there was a story on Facebook about a woman in Sheffield who was left without heating for 5 days.  One person commented 'sheffield shitty council' so I corrected them by stating it was actually the responsibility of Kier.  Cue these comments (and i apologise if anyone finds them offensive)

So my appointment with South Yorkshire Police is tomorrow as Im certainly not standing for that kind of unprovoked behavior.  He thinks im joking.  Maybe with his Facebook downtime, he could have some and spelling lessons.

Oh Simon that's not very impressive is it. Let us know how you get on

This why I don't have a Facebook account get asked a lot but one I'm a private person two Facebook seems to be a hotbed of trouble.

It can be nicheuk, the secret is to be very selective who you let into your friends, along with tight security. I've never had any problems ( yet) with mine.

Seems there is some activity at the Chesterfield Hotel - the removal van was there!

Politics / Re: Meltdown Youth Generation
« on: February 23, 2015, 03:00:26 PM »
This is a very wide and deep situation nicheuk and as you say cutting housing benefit for the younger end of our society is not the answer.
I am a little out of touch these days with the care system, but I do know plans were being made to extend the special needs children's ages who were being fostered to 21 or 25 yrs.
Main stream fostered children were also to hopefully have this extension.

I believe there was 'talk' from Government ( but not sure if it was this one ) to start to try and re-educate families with a means to, helping them to realise the importance of eductaion for their children, with a subsequent move into work rather than claiming benefits, building up confidence and awareness of Political situations.

Having said that, I also believe that the leaning towards drink and drugs also need to be addressed, maybe one way forward would be to provide more youth clubs etc, to give our young people a purpose in their lives to actually 'go somewhere' and mix with good influences rather than the negatives which seem to be the current way of things.

Cutting off benefits won't solve anything will it - just make things worse!

Depression/mental illness has been on the rise for all age groups for awhile now.
What we are seeing in many instances is children being brought up without structure and parents who themselves are drug or alcohol dependent, giving little help or guidance to their children.
Put that with the current situation of no work and little prospect of finding work with a living wage. They have nothing to look forward to or strive for in life - little wonder they just give up.

Would this be just a gathering of the Gay communities, coming together nicheuk or some sort of a festival with entertainment?

Here's the story.
It appears to be a complex situation, due to the child's father working in another country and not paying national Insurance in the UK?
Not something I have come across before to be honest.
It seems the child has not been awarded the 'Care Component' of the DLA because if this.

Has anyone else heard of this?

Rants / Re: Parking on pavements
« on: February 21, 2015, 09:49:52 AM »
Heres my evidence.  Taken from my dash cam so not perfectly clear

Why the driver felt the need to park partly on the pavement is a mystery - there is ample room for the car to be on the road without obstruction - even if it is in a bus parking area!
