I take it you used the steps and not literally a vertical climb. :roll:

Re: Paypal Account Fees

I don't do Paypal but am again considering it. Can someone please explain in nice simple basic English, how the system operates if I link it to a Credit Card. I can't really grasp the principle of it and their terms and conditions have always put me off. And apologies if this request is taking it of...

Re: Smart meters (again?)

Presumably if the customer doesn't agree to having a smart meter installed they will continue to have someone calling to enter the property to read the meter? That scenario was one I mentioned when giving reasons I would not consider having one. One of our village residents is employed as a meter r...

Re: Smart meters (again?)

OP. Your relative does not have to allow access inside his property in time of Covid, if he does not want too. I see it as that simple. He (or you) should phone them and stop them coming. I should have added that he (or I) will be phoning to refuse access. However, I am concerned about the right to...

Smart meters (again?)

Over the last couple of years I've been pestered by my supplier, so much that I told them never to ring me or write to me again about installing one. Just lately, they've been sending cards saying that "my" meter is waiting in the warehouse and giving me a choice of appointments for the fo...

Re: Ginnels, and snickets

Coming from Runcorn, they were always known as "entries" to us.
When I worked in Liverpool they were called "jiggers".
And down here in Pembrokeshire, they're called a "drang".

Re: Dovecote location, Herefordshire

No, a very good try but not that's not it.

They had drone footage and it was located amongst some incredible buildings with what appeared to be a large walled garden with arches to it.

I'll keep looking, but thanks for your efforts.

Dovecote location, Herefordshire

I watched Mortimer & Whitehouse Go Fishing (episode 6 of 6) last night, where they were fishing on the lower River Wye. I think the section they fished was near Goodrich Castle, but I'm interested in the Dovecote accommodation that they hired for an overnight stay; although the drove to it, so m...

Thanks for your honest reply Mick.

And to reply: I'd like to think I would.

Re: Buried with a bicycle.

Here's a question for you Mick.
If your dear old Dad had owed that £200 to one of his mates, for example,
would you have been a dutiful son and paid it off for him?

Re: Spiders

All my life I've had an aversion to spiders, especially those massive ones that come into the house around this time of year. The ones Mick mentions lurking in the wall / ceiling corners I've not been too bothered about. However, since taking up macro photography I've got a new found love of the cor...

Re: Surnames

All this talk of changing names, makes me wonder whether we should change the name (or title) of this thread!
