Re: Legal requirement to display address for online selling?

I have to agree MKG. Many years ago I worked for a Canadian company with an office in, among other places, Birmingham. For some antiquated reason we were paid each month in Canadian dollars and had to troop around the corner to the bank to turn them into pounds. It all seemed rather quaint to me but...

Re: spanish site

Which area are you looking at? You could try asking for info on www.andalucia.com, although they are generally only good for info in the south of Spain

Re: "Can we talk" about

I am a complete non-believer as far as any religion is concerned. Two interesting points arise from this. The first is a born again Christian friend who can't see that I feel insulted that she is forever trying to talk me out of this viewpoint. I don't try to "convert" her and I become annoyed when ...

Re: I may be opening a can of worms here but...

I don't mind preparing the meat etc, I just want to be able to buy some OH will tolerate in the house. I never was what I call an "ethical" vegetarian really, I just could never bear the taste and texture. On the other hand he definitely is. And since the fields surrounding us are now full of skippi...

I may be opening a can of worms here but...

...I need some information/opinions. OH and I mainly eat vegetarian, with occasional tuna, salmon or prawns thrown in. Before anyone reminds me I am not really a vegetarian - I know! I was one for 27 years and now I'm not - I claim self-defence after living in Spain and France for years and having t...

Re: Unusual Finds!

They concluded it had been the room of someone who just didn't make it in WWI and the family just bricked it up. But there was no furniture which I suppose novelists would lead you to expect in those circumstances. There wassprobably a much more mundane explanation. Perhaps it was just to do with pa...

Re: Unusual Finds!

We have some friends who bought a big Georgian terraced house early last year. They had a survey and all was reported as satisfactory. A few months later they had the outside painted. The painter asked them to open one of the back windows so he could paint the frames but every one they opened wasn't...

Re: Springs

Problem solved! I managed to chat with the lady whose husband built the house. The cable was to bring a TV signal down from an aerial they had erected about two miles away as no signal could be received at the house otherwise. This was back in the 1980s and it became obsolete when satellite dishes a...

I was thinking that he probably couldn't type anyway..... No excuse - what's wrong with a pencil in his mouth! :wink: I was just about to write the same thing! Then I thought it's probably been great for his diet, what with struggling with a knife and fork etc. Then I felt mean. Then I though he's ...

Re: "Hot" drinks???

I must admit that since we moved back to the UK from living abroad I've become more of a copmplainer in restaurants. As a nation we are far too accepting of bad service and I realised that others aren't as tolerant. Not hot enough? Send it back! I do it all the time (without being completely silly a...

Re: Anyone bought a VW T3(T25) Camper?

Also, it's red, newer and cheaper. So can't be bad. Also, that shaft would probably have gone on your way home so the VW is best forgotten asap!
