  1. Old Sheffield dishes

    Hi there everybody, I am interested in any old traditional Sheffield dishes you have experienced. Dishes Mum or Granny used to make for you? I remember the traditional meat and two veg, fish and chips, meat and potato pie, stew, ash and dumplings, I have tried all these. I have also heard of Tripe, Chicklings and bag and pig heads- I have never ever tried these by the way but did come home one day to find a pigs head boiling on the oven!!(Yucky) Any more I should know of? I would love to collect some old recepies please!! Thank for reading, I look forward to any replies xx

  3. A World Without Mobile Phones?

    Hi Hjdary I am not against phones in principal, I can see where they can be useful. What makes me sad about Society with them is there is a definate lack of verbal conversations around now, at restaurants, on the bus, teenagers talking together. Everything seems to be done through a phone. I was around before mobile phones and I can see how they have taken over some peoples lives. Sadly todays youngsters have not experienced a world without phones, a world where you had peace and quiet, a place where you could have space alone and have time to think, stop and appreciated the world around you. People on their phone constantly miss out on so much of been in the moment, they are plugged in to their phones, ignorant of the world and the people in it. This is not a world I would like to live in. I have no phone, I live in the moment, I experience my surroundings, participate in the world and see its beauty and love first hand, not through headphones and a text. I dare everyone with a phone to have a NO PHONE DAY and experience life! Who is up for the challenge? I love humanity and love the world, I dont like to see you all turning into Robots controlled by your phones. Take up the challenge, you owe it to yourselfves, love and hugs to you all xx

    A true hero, thanks for sharing. So many of the boys who came home must have been too traumatised to speak of their ordeal.
  5. Sheffield Castle Redevelopment

    Manor Lodge is a wonderful asset to Sheffield, it is about time the volunteers who run it get recognition for their hard work in keeping the attraction open.

  9. Sheffield Castle Redevelopment

    I hope this happens soon, it will be such an amazing site for Sheffield, only with parts of the castle exposed. Everyone loves castles and history. Sheffield needs to sell its history more.

    Maybe I have tasted the wrong recipe, are there any old recipes out there What Granny used to make? I would love to hear of them and try making them?
  11. Favourite view point in the peaks

    Hi Voldy glad you enjoyed the posts, it is my favourite subject. the countryside. I love to sit out there in the peace and quiet, breathing in the fresh air and losing myself in the beauty. Stafford-shire sounds great too, anywhere with fresh, beautiful scenery is a place I want to be/
  12. Favourite view point in the peaks

    What a beautiful photo, thanks for sharing. I have never been there, definitely a place worth visiting.
  13. Dunkirk

    Thanks Lysander I will look for a copy, there is so much I dont know and want to know. I love to hear of personal experiences, the real stories of the war.
  14. When Saturday Comes

    I think we are all guilty of that, I wished I had listened more to my Granddad when he spoke of the war and listened more to my parents. They were interesting people and if I could pass on any words of Wisdom to the young of today, it would be to listen to the old stories, you can learn a lot from them and they are worth listening to. You dont want to regret not taking an interest. I would be interested to hear what Kim's relatives say W/E. thanks/

    I dont think she was in this film, the accent spoiled her.
