Re: First Man

I quite enjoyed it for the most part. It did seem to cover a lot though and seemed to be levering in scenes for the sake of it, making it quite disjointed in certain parts of the film. The onboard scenes were very good though and demonstrated how 'rough' pure prototypes can be. With the 5.1 SS on, ...

Re: What return are you targeting?

I know that seeing £100K sitting in a savings account is dumb. I don't know know what the right level to try to get it down to is. I wouldn't use the word 'dumb' - I think the phrase might be that it's a 'nice problem to have'..... Might it be worth looking at this a different way? If you think tha...

Re: No-look November 2019

As someone who is generally comfortable with the amount of monitoring I normally do, I will certainly be keeping a keener eye than usual on my investments in November if we do leave on Halloween. I may not be the greatest investor in the world, but I trust myself to avoid any knee-jerk reactions an...

Re: What return are you targeting?

I sat December 2018 out and didn't do anything, but it sure as hell made me ask myself how I'd have reacted if it was 40% or 50% or 60% and it was 80 to 100% of my net worth that was happening to. I don't see anything wrong with believing I'd have probably panicked - better to realise it before it ...

Re: What return are you targeting?

There have been a couple of replies that come across almost as if overlooking that I've got 30% in concentrated equity exposure already.. For clarity, is that 30% of your invested capital, or 30% of total capital including your cash and NS&I linkers? If it's 30% of your invested capital, would ...

November starts after 31 October. Something I can't quite put my finger on about that date. Nope, my eyes will be wide open .... Yes! If we do in fact Brexit on that day, I defy anyone to go through the next month not checking their portfolio...... Well, nobody said it was going to be easy ....:O )...

Re: Radiator Bleeding.

I need to bleed the radiator in the top-floor bathroom of a 3 storey house. The system fill valve is on the ground floor near the hot water cylinder. Is it possible to get a bleed valve which allows gas to escape but closes when the radiator gets full of water. Otherwise I think I will have to run ...
