It's a metaphor for Brexit. Or an allegory. Or something.

Re: Second Hand Goods

I understand where HYD is coming from here. ... An out-of-production 'classic' could go for anything depending on the circumstances. ... My Roland Juno 60 bought 2nd hand for £200 sold for £350. This was to a rock 'star' who was making a TV programme about the 80s so perhaps money wasn't so importa...

Re: 50 years old

Looks like Sports Direct do a 'Hi Tec Silver Shadow 2' for £22, so assume they are a Sports Direct special i.e. a lower grade with a similar name
I had loads of problems with Sports Direct 'Karrimor' walking boots, which were crap.

Re: 50 years old

Did you have any pain in the joints/shins? (the usual comment from friends is "oh you need proper running gear - these £120 trainers to start with") Which in my opinion is dangerous rubbish. You need to build up strength and flexibility. For me, regular leg stretch, joint movement exercis...

Re: Second Hand Goods

They made too many ZX81s (still got mine somewhere) - although brand new in box may be worth a few quid. Now, an early Apple computer may be worth a fair bit... I'm a guitarist - people will pay (tens of) thousands for early Gibsons/Fenders etc- way more than they cost, even allowing for inflation. ...

I am on that 'Facebook' thing. And also 'WhatsApp' although it will soon cease to work due to my aged iPhone.
I hate Twitter.

Re: Second Hand Goods

Stating the bleedin' obvious but depends on what it is.
Tech stuff more than a year old I'd look for minimum 50% discount
Some things hold their value better - good guitars, watches, top end hi-fi etc

Re: 50 years old

I'm normal weight and do a lot of walking, but absolutely hate running I've tried a few times but within a minute or so my ankles/knees etc are aching. Dunno about 'feeling great' - it has always made me feel hot, sick, and unwell. I can happily keep walking for miles, and often do as I don't drive ...

Re: Time flies

Watching a program on ITV at the moment and they talked briefly to the former owner of the Bree Louise pub that has been demolished to make way for HS2. Is that the same pub where I attended my first Fool Social? Probably but a search for Bree Louise finds other websites: https://whatpub.com/pubs/N...

UPAD is no more

If affected you probably know this already, but UPAD have shut up shop https://www.upad.co.uk/closed.html I had an email from TDS regarding deposit this morning - my tenancy was via UPAD and they were very good, and cheap!

Re: Cash transfer value from DB scheme

Not a useful response really, but that looks very generous to me
You could put £65784 in 'an investment' and draw that pension for nearly 40 years
Obviously the 'investment' would need match/beat CPI/RPI
Perhaps I have missed something obvious? (edit: like the tax situation?)

Re: Double payment for goods - best thing to do?

I'm paranoid now in case it reappears !
Will be checking my credit card statements extra carefully for the next few months (which I should be doing anyway...)
