Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Airedale is a token giving barrier which you shove in a payment machine after your visit, pay the tariff and it flips it to an exit token. I think the first 20 mins is free then it's £2 and upwards. Cost us £8.00 yesterday with our unexpected extended stay.

You can empty the plastic capsules into water but the contents are small hard and granular and sink to the bottom of the glass, you need loads of water to swill them out of the glass ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

My letter this morning from the Department of Work and Pensions. Inviting me to get my State Pension along with my unique invitation code. Invitation code, anyone would think I have won a prize rather than it already being my money and my entitlement having paid it all in. Gives me an option not to ...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

While your regular butcher is closed Stanley I can recommend Nathan who has recently taken over Steve Hursts on Newtown. I have some of his stewing beef in the slow cooker at the moment, lovely lean meat.

Re: PET'S CORNER

Animals are very aware of the humans they have to look after them, particularly cats. Both of ours seem to have sensed that there is something wrong with me and tend to come for a cuddle more often.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Yes I certainly can't fault the NHS with my experience of the service. The AAU department which effectively only deals at the sharp end is fantastic although under pressure. They are the diagnostic tool for the rest of the service, they don't treat apart from any required immediate medication. When ...

Re: BEWARE! THE BANKS ARE OUT TO GET YOU!

Talking about pensions...my sister-in-law retired from her health visitor job last year. This month she turned 60 and was in the middle of celebrating when her NHS monthly pension failed to appear in her account. She phoned them and was told that they've been paying her too much so she won't get he...

PanBiker, how did your brain scan go? In my case I went deaf in one ear, quite an unusual condition. When they suggest a scan I knew they suspected a tumour but kept it to themselves. In all events they didn't find anything. Excellent P for your scan, deafness apart, mine went a bit different as be...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

We get fed propaganda nonsense also, the same as you do in the UK. My main beef is people who constantly oppose what their government is doing, they're wreckers and traitors. The difference for us of course in a democracy is that we can protest, complain and demonstrate to our hearts content about ...

Re: STEAM ENGINES AND WATERWHEELS

Every garage forecourt used to have a portable Castrol R pump as additive for fuelling two stroke engines. One shot to a tank of 2 star leaded on a Bantam and other marques from memory, similar for all the scooter boys.

Yes, I think it was there until the new P.0. buildings were built. I can just remember the the wooden buildings and hoardings on that corner before the new build.Come to think of it, it was at the same time as Holy Trinity was being built.

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Looks a lot better, the stone on my frontage rebuild was up cycled from Bethesda Baptist Chapel, built the low range in the front room and fireplace in the back from it as well. I bet none of that internal handiwork is there now.
