  1. Don't know what all the fuss is about. People on the continent have been eating horse meat for 'donkeys' years and they are all right. It's only the thought of eating horse is what upsets us Brits. Would people eat cow if it wasn't nicely wrapped up on a tray in the supermarket. would they eat chicken if they had to kill it themselves, get over it - it's food, eat and enjoy.

  2. To all the above nice people! Thanks for your replies and suggestions. I have actually got rid of everything today (Wednesday) I thoroughly recommend a firm from Chilwell called HCLR (0796 8824151). He took absolutely everything and was promt and courteous.

  3. Have just lost my Dad this weekend and am in the throws of clearing his house out. Have got rid of all the small stuff, bric a brac etc but now need to get rid of the furniture. Have had a quote of £400 but am not prepared to pay that, anyone know of anyone who will clear everything at a reasonable price please? Don,t mind paying the going rate but do not want to be ripped off.

  4. often wondered how the hell young lads managed on those huge heavy bikes!lol. also i didnt know that they used the money pipes back in the day!(born 69)they use them at my sainsburys local and also in hospitals for sending paper work but with bigger tubes

    Hi cooljoolz. Just goes to show, kids today think that they invented everything!

  5. Thanks Firbeck. Went onto a site called 'Rated people' who are a go between for tradespeople and those who may need their expertise. They have recommended a plumber who comes from Clifton, about two miles away. I'll give him a go but will bear in mind the possibility of builders over inflating the job. Thanks for the offer Firbeck, much obliged.

  6. Hi Firbeck

    It's definately a leak, I can see the hole. Cast Iron guttering on a mid terrace 2 up 2 down. Yep I do have a ladder, but lack the confidence to have a go myself, getting a bit old to climb up and down ladders I'm afraid.

  7. Does anyone out there know of a good tradesman who can repair leaking guttering at a reasonable price - hate being ripped off!. During the recent storms the weather has highlighted a definate weakness in my guttering, The path underneath is wetter than usual!!!! Any info would be appreciated, by the way I'm at Ruddington, so someone within reasonable travelling of that area.

  8. Help! Being a little dim in the computer department I ask any of you what may appear a very simple question, but I can't find the answer.

    I have an apple 16 gb i pod with 850 songs in the memory at present. I want to add additional songs, if I copy my CDs to my computer then download them to my i pod will i loose my original 850 songs? Hope not, lots of Rock and Roll on there!!!!

    Any help appreciated.


  9. I'm new around here, but I have a couple of questions for PEMBERTON. First name Mick? Demon biker? Proud owner of a copy of the Big Bopper's rare "Chantilly Lace" album?

    Thanks for the PM Icarus, I'm afraid I am not whom you think I am , I use pembertone as my on line name. My genre in music is the era you mention but mainly pure rock and roll, sorry to dissapoint.

  10. Just a bit - DJ was a chap called Dave, came from West Bridgford. Do you remember Ken Ward? He set up a group of us lads who started to dig out the car park at the bottom of the church hall, we used to get free entry to the Saturday Hop for that, one Sunday we all went down to do a bit more digging and, bu99er me, the vicar had hired a JCB.

  11. Hi mgread

    Yes I do remember the Saturday night hops at St Francis, used to go there on a regular basis, I used to enter the twist Competition every week, and without sounding off, it was either myself and then girlfriend, Gwen Lambert, or Dave Miller and Yvonne who used to win, it got so bad that they tried to bar us from entering. Mick Dale was a school pal of mine who lived about five or sixdoors away from me, he still lives on Farnborough Road opposite where my Dad is still living. I see him regularly and he is still very well, small world ain't it.
