Re: Telephone Cold calling

An interesting question is why are some people plagued by these cold calls and others are seemingly not? Is this just some random effect or is there something else behind it. Does anyone know or have any theories? I think it just takes one bad company to get hold of your number and that's it. It co...

Re: Telephone Cold calling

For landlines I would recommend something like the BT4600 - https://shop.bt.com/products/bt4600-premium-nuisance-call-blocker---single-084665-BY4H.html I have one of the older models and for a relatively cheap price it does stop the nuisance calls. You have a choice about how the phone operates, bu...

Thanks for the responses.

She said she was a single mother with five children...no benefits for her then! She could not understand the tax and ...

Me too, I think the range factor is obviously a bigger issue in the USA than somewhere compact and densely populated like England.

Telephone Cold calling

I am being called at least twice a day and have been for about three months by some financial company wanting to offer me a trading account, in bitcoin I think. I have spoken to the callers and said no thanks I'm not interested. Now I just block each new number as it comes up, they seem to have an e...

Re: Stupidly cheap car hire - how does this work?

I have hired cheap off season cars in Spain many times, the cheapest I recall being £12 for 4 days. Never had any problems. I have used Firefly, Goldcar and others I've never heard of before. Never had a problem, never taken out excess, don't have my own policy. Just lucky I guess.

Sorry to hear this, I think you should definitely get a 32 or 36 spoke replacement, is it disc or rim brake? I usually but online from either Chain reaction or the Wooly Hat Shop on eBay.

The 3 month rule highlighted in the Independent article is completely unenforceable as once people are here they will hardly ever be deported as charitable organisations funded by the government will always defend their right to stay using legal processes again paid for from taxpayers funds.

Re: Carrying a blade

What make & model of car has such a stupid design? A surprising number of relatively modern cars are similar. Most have smooth transitions between the roof and the sides, whereas twenty or thirty years back most had seams which channelled water away and allowed you to easily clip a roof rack on...

Thats why you don't use boiling water, just fill a jug from your hot tap. Never cracked one.

Clearly it is a personal choice whether one wishes to put a car in a garage or not. During my life I have had six houses of which five had garages the exception being a Georgian town house in central York. I have never kept my car in any of those garages and can't see me starting now. If we had a co...
