I don't think so,

If going solo doesn't count, then male and female lifetime averages must match pretty closely. So I wonder why the figure was presented as specifically for men :?

Re: Diversified non-UK income IT portfolio

If timing is an issue you consider, you might want to take a view on whether Boris is truly going to take us over a cliff. 'Cos if he doesn't, and sterling rebounds, non-UK assets are suddenly going to look a lot cheaper when measured in pounds sterling. The reverse is also of course a risk.

Re: Water source heat pump

Thanks for the replies. I found Kensa through googling, and have submitted an enquiry there. There was one other web site (whose name I forget) where I also submitted an enquiry. Of course it'll all be subject to relevant permissions: I hope a reputable supplier will advise me what I need (beyond re...

Water source heat pump

Since I'm now on the river, a water source heat pump might be a good option for me.

Anyone here use one, or know anything about them? Prospective suppliers seem to be few and far between!

In other words, does going solo count?

Wish me luck!

Today's my house move. If this is my last post, you'll know I'm lost in a vortex of removals. If not, my next post will probably come from either a living room or a bedroom soothed by the rushing sound of the river immediately below. A sound I've often sought out when backpacking, and find wonderful...

What if the ladybird-size insect was not what caused the mark, but something that just happened to visit and get noticed? Perhaps it even saw a smaller offending bug as dinner?

Re: Electric bike on M25

Back in about 1984-ish I found myself unexpectedly on the motorway. I think it was the under-construction M25. I was cycling from London to Sussex, a journey I'd dune a fair few times. Down the A21 as far as Tunbridge Wells, then the smaller roads and hilly bits. Only the A21 I thought I knew dumped...

Re: Bitten

Do google Lyme disease (being the main risk of a bite becoming something serious). If it's a kind of red ring, you may want to try and get tested. Though I think it's unlikely: AIUI Lyme disease is a risk when a tick feasts fully on you, which implies they go unnoticed for quite some time. But I'm n...

Re: Paying off the mortgage.

Having just bought a house without a mortgage[1], I don't feel that sense of security. Instead I have a bunch of new expenses for things that need fixing (and a wishlist of the non-urgent things), and a cash buffer that's just vanished. There are always two sides to a question!

It's yet more evidence that 'mildly disappointed' is no longer an acceptable reaction to something that displeases.
