    problems accessing site sunday

    Yes Dizzy does do Sundays Gary but alas this weekend 10 hours each day in her real job...sorry I didn't know you couldn't cope without me . I will send you a copy of my work rota so you know when I'm fully available in my free time if you like lol All was working fine the times I did come on though....but slap on the wrist for me which I will accept cos I've actually only just noticed this 'forum problem' topic 👀

    Should she be "rescued"

    I'm not sure what her actual crimes were or are on paper PJ other than her fleeing to join ISIS and supporting their atrocities. Did you watch the quite lengthy interview of her that has been publicised over the past few days? She clearly shows no remorse for leaving to join ISIS nor did she show any emotion whatsoever regarding the beheading of people or the bombing of innocent people and children Manchester and other places other than to say she believed it was right...life for a life and all that. The only reason she wants to come back here is because she's now alone over there and has a baby who she 'wants a better life for'. Did she ever want to come back with her other two children she had over there who have sadly died . I say 'sadly' as it's not the kids faults and it is sad that because of HER they were born and died there in a land of evil. I have no problem with her little baby coming back to the UK but NO WAY SHOULD SHE EVER BE LET BACK IN....SHE IS CLEARLY STILL OF THE MINDSET THAT WHAT TERRORISTS DO IS OK.

    White Goods Removal

    Not that Range Asp, the one I was talking about was just off Manchester Road opposite the cemetery gates. Milky is correct though as it did close longer ago than I thought but certainly not last century as the last thing I bought from there was my washer so maybe a year or two ago. I was thinking I'd bought my dad's freezer from there last summer but it was from the other similar shop just round the corner from it on marsh house Lane. Silly me.

    A breath of fresh air ?

    I'd love to have a horse and cart to travel around in but alas not living in a rural village (well it was once) I have nowhere to keep my horsey and cart so alas I will just have to keep my petrol fuel propelled car and Mr Dizzy will have to keep his gas guzzler Diesel as he doesn't like horses anyway. I wouldn't really want an electric car as surely long term there is more to go wrong and they cost more to fix. Maybe I'm wrong though.... I'm happy to be corrected and converted..... I think it's nice that kids are taking an interest in their future and that of our planet though

    White Goods Removal

    I didn't know that the council now charged to removed white goods either Milky. Yes I knew they had always charged for sofas and other household bulky goods but fridges, freezers, washing machines (ie white goods even if they were not actually white) were always taken at no charge. Have to admit though that I've never used the service (either paid for or not) as when I did ring last year they said I had to book a specific day for collection and their first available slot was almost 3 weeks away plus they said I also leave my item covered from the elements so it didn't get wet or they wouldn't take it and also had to be put on our drive with full access to the collection team and not left anywhere else .....which is not much use to anyone like me who doesn't have a blummin drive is it lol. It was ok though cos we managed to cut it all up with a saw, axe and metal grinder and deposited it at the local tip with a few trips in a big 4x4. I was quite therapeutic battling to chop it up to be honest ha ha. As for white goods though we took my dads small under counter fridge and freezer to Gateworth Tip in the car but when we bought our new washer, oven etc from the shop that used to be off Manchester Road (was it called Range?) they took the old broken ones away when they delivered the new one for free. I think a lot of places will actually take your old one away for recycling the same day they deliver a new one now but I could be wrong.

    Insulin ?

    So more scare tactics to put fear and mass panic into peoples minds and yes a ploy to either make us (the UK people) think 'Shite maybe we'd best not leave after all then'. Probably a ploy to put fear into all other countries who may be quietly thinking that they may leave too. Such a large proportion of people here and around the world are diabetic and NEED insulin so no wonder they are trying this tactic to keep us all REMAIN. The more scare stories I see the more determined I am that we should LEAVE and put 2 fingers up to the lot of them. YES WE WILL ALL BE OK...IF WE CAN SURVIVE 2 ATROCIOUS WORLD WARS AND THE REST WE CAN BLOODY SURVIVE BREXIT !
  8. Hiya Eddie and sorry for my slow reply as I've only just seen your post on here as I've been AWOL for a few days. I was the one who reset your Password for you the other day after your contacted Gary. Seems you have it sorted now though and YES you do have to log in using your Display Name not your Email Address. I tend to never bother logging out of the Forum regardless of how I am accessing it so whenever I come on either via my desktop pc, tablet of mobile phone it's just there. I've been a member for well over 10 years and leaving it logged in has never caused me a problem. I suppose the only downside of me not logging out is that I do sometimes worry that my son will come on my desktop pc etc and post random things on the forum in my name. He's big enough for me to thump though if he ever does ha ha .

    Beaumont school

    Could have been allotment areas for growing veg and stuff if the photo was was taken during or after the war years Davy. Stockton Heath Primary School had allotments just outside it's perimeter area on the West Avenue side. Saying that they also had air raid shelters on the same side too so maybe that's another possibility for the patches you mention at Beamont.

    Child suicides

    Alas the online word is becoming the norm to youngsters these days and to us 'oldies' too Bill. I've seen kids not even into their teen years yet with mobile phones and internet access and of course they are online on computers or games consoles at home too. We used to limit our lad when he was young to time online and he didn't have a mobile phone with internet as it was just for phone calls and capped too. If he wanted to go on the internet he had to use our home desktop computer and that was downstairs not up in his bedroom so although we weren't looking over his shoulder it was always clear to us what the was doing or at least he though it was. That was not intentional it was just the way it was. Times change though and I guess it's up to us parents or grandparent to hopefully lay the foundations and to let our kids or grand kids know what is right what is wrong but more importantly THAT WE AS PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS OR FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS HERE FOR THEM AND IF THEY DN'T FEEL THEY CAN TALK TO FAMILY OR FRIENDS THERE ARE MANY ORGANISATIONS THEY CAN CONTACT IN COMPLETE CONFIDENTIALITY if they feel life is getting them down or they feel they need need help. Easier said than done to make them realise that though at times but hopefully they will Sad thing is I'm sure the vast majority of parents do that and say the same to their kids but still the youngsters take their own lives as do many others. It's so sad and I really don't know what the answer is other that to reiterate the words "it's ok not to be ok...ask for help it IS there". #itsoknottobeok

    WW News

    When the forum was upgraded last time we lost the link facility at the top of the page as it reverted to a standard skin (ie layout) rather than a customised one. Previous upgrades and initial workings used to be carried out by Gary's news website web designers who did used to do the forum upgrades and clever stuff too (at a cost). Then Invision (the forum provider) created a way that us admins could upgrade the forum and be responsible for it all for free so we do it ourselves now. Unfortunately that means that we can't create and upload unique 'skins' for it to all sit upon. I did ask Invision how we could link to the news pages again but they said it was only possible to upload an image not a back link like we had before unless we created our own custom 'skin' again which is not as straight forward as it sounds. I was certainly wasn't trying as I could have wiped the whole forum out and lost the lot.....PJ would have liked that though lol. Just one of those things I'm afraid unless you all want to club together to pay for it to be done by the Pro's again
