General Discussion / Paper

Don't laugh I'm serious with this.

Have any of you come across paper that once wet won't dry?
The reason I'm asking is a few days ago some bank statements got wet across the top.
I spread them out on the carpet in a spare bedroom and left them for two or three days.
When I went to gather them up - they were still wet!

Soooo I put them over two radiators and eventually they dried.

I left them on my dressing table with intentions of filing them the following day - only to find -------- they were wet again?????

How strange!  :-?

Anyone else have them?
I'm fed up and thinking of changing suppliers.
Poor internet access which ebbs and flows, my mobile phone loses connection and I'm asked to put data on when I'm at home.
Must be better out there!!

General Discussion / Face Book admin/ moderators

I use face book but much less than I did.
I've read some awful posts with vile language, threats and naming and shaming.
I have just read a post  in a group I am in where motorists are being alerted to speed cameras.
What actually are the duties of the mods and admin.
Personally I would remove all of the above.

Chesterfield Discussion / Armistice Day

It will soon be upon us and how pleased and proud I am to see so many village and towns erecting Tommy's and Poppy displays.
It brings people and communities together.
i have seen a beautiful display of Poppies on Grassmoor Chapels front and the large black Tommy's around North Wingfield and our own village has a Large Tommy at the side of the Cenotaph - very fitting place.
Saturday I was out for four hours with others putting large poppies on the lamp posts around our village.

I would love to see photo's posted on here of what other Towns and Villages.

I have one or two to post over the next week.

Anyone else seen any great displays?

Chesterfield Discussion / This old chestnut - Chesterfield Hotel
« on: August 12, 2018, 11:02:19 AM »
Does anyone have any updates on this building?
Having heard it was being turned into a building for people with disadvantages to being pulled down it's gone quite ( I think )

Anyone know what's happening with it?

They made an effort for the 70th year celebrations.

Lovely blue and white balloons formed an arch over the entrance whilst inside balloons were hanging from available places.
WE were there about 2.30pm and sat having a drink when a small group were singing and playing guitars near the admissions office.

Lovely atmosphere - can't say the same for the person on the check in desk when I took my paper as directed by consultant to be given another appointment.  ::)

My elderly uncle 85 yrs was talking of Penny Friday when he was a lad.
My elderly aunt 90 yrs said they had farthing Fridays as they were a big family and so couldn't afford to be given a Penny but she went on to tell us that every Sunday they all had a small bar of white chocolate

Chesterfield Discussion / Bird Lovers

We have a Red Kite in our village, I saw it on Monday - if you are a bird watcher I believe four of these birds have been released in Derbyshire.

How long is it since Derbyshire had any flying in our skies???

General Discussion / Heat Wave

How do others cope in the heatwave we are currently experiencing.
I love the hot weather but admit it has been too hot for me to sit out in at times.

The grass is dying fast, even the birds didn't feed much yesterday.

For those who work in places which have no air con I feel for you.

We use fans in our home, I keep the curtains closed when the sun is on the windows.
There is not much more I can think of??

We are not equipped in the UK for it in most buildings - as we are not equipped for heavy snow

Does anyone else remember Ashover Zoo.
From what I remember it wasn't a large zoo.
No pictures of it anywhere?
