Chesterfield Discussion / Re: Legal highs survey

You are quite right scimitar, we stayed in Vancouver and really enjoyed using the HOHo bus to see the sights - but the one thing that sticks in my mind were the beggers, picking up fag ends etc.
People will remember the louts!!!

"Man you look tired."
His buddy says: 
​“Mate I'm exhausted. My girlfriend and I have sex all the time.
​She’s after me 3 and 4 times a day.​
She wants sex before breakfast, sex before I go to work, when I come home
she’s tearing my shirt of as I come through the door.
She’s got her hands down my pants after dinner.
She even joins me in the shower almost every night.  I just don't know what to do."
A fellow in his 70’s  sitting a couple of stools down, also overheard the conversation.
He looked over at the two young men and with the wisdom of years said,

..................."Marry her. That'll put a stop to all that shit !!"

If this cat costing all this money , why not sale it and buy a wooden bee  hay pesto no vet bills. Theirs one in town just need a van.  :))

 :)) - wouldn't cost as much would it - only a coat of varnish now and again -
Tell you what though nichey young fella - the kiddies would play with Flash at their peril - at the vet found out  :))

Hope it's not too serious though especially as it will have already cost £300.00 or there about.

TBH I haven't even tried - I wouldn't get anywhere  ::) :-[

Like Pete, I don't see a problem with it having nothing to do with Chesterfield.
It might actually draw people into town to see it though  (y)

What - to look a a wood carving of a Bee - I doubt it.
Put it like this I certainly wouldn't travel to say - Birmingham to look at a Bee - would you?
There has to be more surely

Like Pam, I can't see any bee/Chesterfield connection. I would have been different if it had been a giant Trebor Mint but a bee...?

 :)) :)) :)) :))

I don't think anyone has actually said the bee is anything to do with Chesterfield OC   :)

Exactly Fly - and this is one of the root problems with Chesterfield as we have been discussing in pastitmans thread.
It has sod all to do with Chesterfield's history and probably would have been better placed in the Queen's Park among the flowers. It may well be ( bee - ha ha ) in relation to the decline of Bees and I'm not criticising  the actually sculpture - just don't think it's relevant to anything in our town - maybe we are to have them in different poses around the town?

 -----  and the Bee has what in relation to Chesterfield's history?

Chesterfield Discussion / Legal highs survey
« on: May 01, 2015, 03:32:42 PM »
The Legal High National Online Survey is an independent, confidential questionnaire focusing on residents' use and views of novel psychoactive substances (NPS) also known as 'legal highs'.
The survey − which is only open to residents aged 18 or over − aims to gain insights from people about the perceptions and experiences they have had with 'legal high' substances.
It will also help us to identify and better meet the needs of people who have mental and physical health problems because of the use of legal highs.
Just this week Derbyshire police revealed a banned substance − linked to two deaths and three hospitalisations in Europe − is in circulation in the county.
Officers seized a packet of a suspected legal high called Black Mamba in Derby city centre last month which tests showed contained the banned compound MDMB-CHMICA.
Our Strategic Director for Health and Communities David Lowe said:
"The survey will help us get a clearer picture of what is going on around the county.
"We're encouraging people to take part to support our work tackling drug misuse in Derbyshire as well as helping those who have issues with addiction and the health problems that may come with it.
"The results will be extremely valuable and help us to support residents make sensible, informed choices and lead healthier lives.
"Meanwhile, particularly following the seizure of a suspected banned substance in Derby, we're backing police advice urging people not to take legal highs because it's not known what they contain."
Legal highs are substances that mimic the psychoactive effects of illegal drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis and amphetamines but are not currently illegal to use or possess.
We had a topic on legal highs not so long ago, here's a chance to have your say.

The survey can be completed by anyone over the age of 18 − whether they have had experiences with legal highs or not - and all responses are treated with strict confidentiality.
Anyone that fills out the questionnaire will have the opportunity to be part of a prize draw with the chance to win an iPad mini, a 'Beats by Dre' Music Pill or a pair of 'Beats by Dre' wireless headphones.
The survey was designed and is being run by the Centre for Drug Misuse Research in Glasgow and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Results from the 2014 nation-wide survey found that of the 1,172 people who participated, 468 had taken a legal high − with 704 people saying they had not.
The survey is open  to UK residents aged 18 and over only and runs until Tuesday 30 June.

Back to the vets again as Flash has a swelling in his throat, two appointments this week and with meds given it's nudging towards £300.00.
He has to go back on Tuesday and be sedated again for them to take a look and see what it is!
Could be another £200.00 on top of what we've paid already!

Old Chesterfield Photos / Re: Chesterfield police 1910

Nice historic photo, in the days when people feared the Police and law and order was upheld. From what Iv been told the dog unit has gone, quite a few Policemen have been made redundant more drive for the powerless Community Support Officers who can not even arrested anyone ,in short policing on the cheap. I wounder what these chaps would make of our justice system?

Very disappointed I would think niche.
The CSO.s do a good job but are limited in what they can do - as you say police on the cheap!

We recently had a policeman at our door asking if we heard or saw anything in the early ours of the morning - The week before!!!
Lots of paper work these days I believe for them which must cut down their 'on the beat' time

True  OC,  there  are  so  many  things  that  could  be  worked  on  but  who  would  that  someone  be?  Sadly,  I  have  come  to  the  conclusion  that  the  powers  that  be,  haven,t  the  ideas,  so  just  don,t  care.  Such  a  pity, such  a  waste.

We have plenty of history lovers pastitman, a request for volunteers to help with ideas would be a start. There are people around who know far more about Chesterfield than the council staff generally because they have an avid interest in our town.
It would be a start?
