  4. ..................yeh but these places are run by little hitlers with no respect or manners.....dont even get me started on the complete hassle i had to deal with at Calvo tip....to be honest i can see why people do tip....and the fact they closed gedling tip down because i quote.."THERES NOTHING IN IT FOR US, IT WAS JUST LONG QUEUES OF CARS BRINGING IN RUBBISH" and that was from the boss hitler at Calvo

  6. See now if i`d known that no way would i have left such items in there......something i never thought of at the time, as i was in "Breavement fairly land".....people like lynmys should explain this to you.....how p#ssed do i feel that some rat as made money from the drippin gold off my dead wife......
  7. Just sitting here today chatting as ya do....and the subject of what happens to all the gold,diamonds and such like after the burning at the crem???....just whos on the make here.....i know they send hip joints and other ball type joints back for refub....my wife was laid to rest in her box with some of her jewllery...gold,silver n diamonds....but i`ve looked through her ashes and theres nowt....it might be hot enough in there to burn a body but not hot enough to vapourise gold silver and never hot enough for the diamond.....so is it the crem-man or the crem-man on behalf of the council.....just a thought......and dont worry i was married 23 year to the wife....so rooting through her ashes is nowt... to what we used to get up to before she went cloud surfing

  14. George`s lane going into Calvo.....I was travelling to a skittle match with the R.A.O.B Mapperley team....we were in a minibus and everything was fine until we turned the sharp left hand bend at the top of the hill going down into the wooded section.....we must have only covered 50 yards down the hill then everything disappeared into a real owd school pea souper fog then the minibus cut out and i mean cut out engine,lights the lot.....blokes had to lend out the windows to guide the driver down the rest of the hill....it was horrid it was so cold....it was like being in a void where everything is dead....as we approached the bottom bit of the woods where it breaks into Calvo the fog just vanished and the minibus was on its way.....with 12 very scared white faced men!!!!!!!!!!! Once seen a policeman.......lol
