General Discussion / Trail Camera
« on: May 11, 2019, 08:07:43 PM »
I have treated myself to one so I can view my 'babies' or Hedgehogs who frequent my garden.
Have to admit I am struggling with the settings a bit as don't really know anything about PIR's etc.
I prefer the video setting to photo setting.

Still I have seen my babies - at least two which are fat ones. One I have called 'Ferk' no prizes for guessing why  How they get into their feeding house together I'm not sure!!

Also the two cats are seen ( not ours and they visit during the day ) and one seems to have spotted the infra red light coming on on the camera  ;D

The one thing I didn't expect was the Fox well maybe more than one as I have captured it on different nights and one seems larger than the other  :-?

I will continue with experimenting with the settings and maybe one day will get a short clip on here!!


General Discussion / Birds
« on: March 31, 2019, 08:29:35 PM »
I'm not sure  why but the wild birds we have enjoyed in our garden are not visiting.
In the past we have struggled to keep up with the food for them - not now. It was same in the winter they didn't come - well very few.

On the up side the Hedgehogs are back!!  :)

Tupton Local History Society has a repeat presentation evening by Laura Binns.

Earlier this month this presentation was popular we were turning people away as the Church was full.
We were fortunate to be able to book Laura again for this coming Thursday


General Discussion / Michael Jackson
« on: March 06, 2019, 08:12:06 PM »
They are showing the documentary about Michael tonight I think it's a two part one.
I am going to watch it and make up my own mind ( or not ) as to whether he really was a Paedophile.
There seems to be a lot of fors and against.
I don't think he was ever convicted of this crime - some will say many were 'paid off' by the family - were they?

General Discussion / A Poll for the male members

Will any of you tough male members own to to being soppy.
Valentines Day is here -
Are you the Flowers or chocies man for your partner. Treat them to a  romantic meal out?

Or - do you think it's all rubbish ????

Apparently  the new owners have big plans for Vicar Lane.
I look forward to seeing these changes.
Do we think it will bring more footfall into the centre?

Chesterfield Discussion / The Big Wheel
« on: January 31, 2019, 02:36:21 PM »
No plans as yet for a return of the wheel in Chesterfield.
I was just wondering what others thought of it last year?

We thought it a good idea and by all accounts encourage a lot of people into the town centre - did it increase sales?
I seem to think it did but am a bit unsure?

We personally made a 'bit of a day out' when it came.
Using the bus into town we browsed the shops and bought a few items, had our ride on the wheel and after went for a welcome hot drink.
Later we enjoyed a late lunch and a bottle of wine before getting on the bus back home.

I wonder how many more people did something similar - or how many didn't bother to go up there and view our town from above!

Chesterfield Discussion / Saltergate closure

Techie Or Suggestions / Gmail
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:02:33 AM »
This is one big headache for me.
It's past my capabilities of sorting it out.
I am struggling with my gmail loading in.
For a couple of weeks now it has been difficult to access and once in I have noticed a small notice comes up on the left side of emails saying
There seems to be a problem connecting to gmail?

Below is what it is saying

Something's not right.
We're having trouble connecting to Google. We'll keep trying...

I have uninstalled Google and reinstalled it as well as other things - including a system restore
Any ideas ?

ps this is happening on both of my laptops but I can access ok on my phone -

Chesterfield Discussion / Gypsie Travellers Sites
« on: January 07, 2019, 08:09:12 PM »
Included in the local plan are Travellers sites.
There has been a choosing of 17 sites.
Now narrowed down to four.

Dark Lane Calow
Dark Lane North Wingfield
Temperance Hill Woolley Moor
Greenaway Wingerworth

I can't comment on three of these but do know the Greenaway land.
This is on land opposite the building currently going on before reaching Tupton.
It will mean Caravans / Motor homes with be pulling into and out of Derby Road just below the brow of the hill.
These are now to be under consultation and I believe Wingerworth Parish Council have called a Public meeting.

We have I know at least two professional drivers on the forum -thoughts of these vehicles pulling out onto Derby Road ?

Whilst I agree Travellers need somewhere to stay I do not agree that next to other established homes a good place nor is it in my own view a good place for pulling out of.

General Discussion / Christmas Wishes

General Discussion / Paper
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:51:06 PM »
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!  :-?

General Discussion / Talk Talk
« on: November 25, 2018, 09:48:58 PM »
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!!
