Are Locksmiths in Doncaster Key Workers

Hello, how are you? I hope you’re doing all you can to stay safe in these difficult and strange times. I’m not a health expert, so I won’t be giving any coronavirus advice out here – I’ll leave that to the experts -  but I’d urge everyone to follow the government’s advice about social distancing, and self-isolation for those who are able to work from home, as well as adding my thanks to all those NHS and care workers putting themselves at risk to look after us all.

Upvc Door Handle Advice

I’m sure that, like me, you remember the song Bootylicious by Destiny’s Child. Released in 2001, it became a huge hit in the charts. I heard it on the radio the other day, quickly recognisable from its opening lyrics, which went thus:

Kelly, can you handle this?
Michelle, can you handle this?
Beyoncé, can you handle this?
I don't think they can handle this
My boy Roc, can you handle this?
My girl Missy, can you handle this?
DC, can you handle this?
My ghettos, you can't handle this

Now, before hearing that song, I had no idea that Beyoncé and her bandmates were such huge fans of door furniture. But why else would they mention it so often? The only conclusion to draw is that they are secretly big fans of handles for UPVC doors. Now, I wouldn’t want to let the girls down, so for their benefit, I’ll be looking at that very subject today. And if you think that was my most clunking introduction to a topic to date, you’d be correct. Sorry about that.

Doncaster Upvc Door Repairs

Hello there, and happy July to you. I’ve just had a garbled voicemail asking me to pen a short blog about the USP of The Doors. Ever obedient, I’ve done a bit of research into the band, led by frontman Jim Morrison, and formed in 1965 in Los Angeles. Their major hits included Light my Fire, Riders on the Storm, and The End, with their brand of music best described as… ah, hang on a minute. I’ve just listened to the voicemail again. The blog requested was on the subject of UPVC doors, not the USP of The Doors. This is slightly embarrassing, but I’ve written over 100 words now, so we’ll just leave them there and move on.

Do Upvc Doors Expand In The Heat?

“Summer in the city where the air is still”, sang Aztec Camera on my radio the other day and I think we can learn a lot from those words, taken from the opening lines of Somewhere in My Heart. They really resonate with me on this May evening as I rush through the streets, being battered by the wind-driven rain, arrive home, turn the heating up and then realise I don’t live in an actual city. But apart from that, yes, those lyrics really resonate.

How Locks Have Played A Role In Religion.

Right then, how the devil are you? I’m okay thanks for asking, touch wood. Nearly walked under a ladder earlier, but narrowly avoided that, thank goodness, and have dodged all the cracks in the pavement so far today. Almost had the nightmare of eating 13 biscuits, but realised in time and made it to a solid 14. Not that I’m superstitious at all... *crosses fingers*.

The History of Locks

It's nearly Christmas and you might be expecting me to do a blog relating to the festive season. Well perhaps this locksmith isn't going to play by those rules. They don't call me the Renegade Locksmith for nothing, you know. Okay, they don't call me that at all. But if they knew I wasn't doing a Christmas-related blog they might. Instead, I'm going to talk about *big intake of breath*.... a brief history of locks. *waits for stunned silence followed by rapturous applause*. Oh..okay, maybe the applause comes later.
