General Discussion / Tameside building
« on: October 25, 2012, 09:57 PM »
I see the Advertiser this week as printed the story of Tameside trying to get permission for a new building though it as just happened it must be about 3 years ago since I heared the news that they were not giving leases to the frozen food shop and when Wilkinsons lease ran out they would not be renewing it. So why not tell the truth and say that they have been thinking about it for a number of years. That places had been looked at were to go as I can name two others one was the snipe so they would have plenty of parking for the staff and the other was the car park at the back of The Ashtree, now its were the Market was at the top of fletcher Street. So it came as no suprise .Fudge

I just don't understand how many women are comimg forward now he is dead you would have thought a small percentage would have done when he was alive. Also now nurses say they use to dread him coming to do voluntery work and tell the children to pretend to be a sleep you would have thought they would have spoken out. No wonder people don't speak out more if they don't see anyone standing up to the Preditors Rich or Poor Fudge

General Discussion / New Dog
« on: February 07, 2012, 09:59 AM »
In Nov my Daughter and family had to have there beloved dog Meg put to sleep as she had cancer she loved having a bit of wine out of the empty bag and would lick it all over she only stole once that was the Turkey one Christmas luckily we had eaten. They could not stand having no dog so the got Sage her owner was terminally ill and she is 3 years old a lot different in character. Last night my daughter made a large pizza for her hand one of the Grandsons she went and had a quick bath when she came down the kitchen looked like a blood bath she had ate all the raw pizza and there was tomato puree all over. She said if we put her near the fire she'll explode. Its funny how animals like to eat unusual things. A lady who she works with got a rescue kitten and it is terrorizing her other cat and Dog but she noticed the eggs kept going missing and caught her stealing one taking it off and eating it. One of my cats loved coconut and would tap you if you had any. As anyone else got animals with strange taste. Fudge
