Re: Petrofac Limited (PFC)

Rightly or wrongly, I think the market has over-reacted to what's a fairly reasonable trading statement, so it's time for another purchase. Market Summary > Petrofac Limited LON: PFC 461.70 GBX +56.70 (14.00%) Now that's what I consider a well-timed purchase! (Though admittedly, more by good luck t...

Re: Strange letter from a solicitor

I've just done nothing! I don't see why I should as they appear very intransigent - they couldn't explain why they wanted me to sign a letter of engagement, but just insisted that I did so. This is not a good strategy. It's annoyingly common for clients not to return signed terms of business, mostl...

I've just been reading about the disgraceful conduct of Southern Water in knowingly allowing gross pollution to take place and then covering it up - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48755329 So they get fined £3m and have to refund their customers £123m over five years.

Sludge grey

Has anyone else noticed a recent trend for cars in - to my mind - a hideous sludge grey colour? Grey metallic can look very attractive on some cars, but this is just a flat grey, something like this - https://s1.cdn.autoevolution.com/images/news/gallery/nardo-gray-audi-rs7-rides-on-adv1-wheels-photo...

Some brilliant photographs taken by the photojournalist John Downing - https://www.theguardian.com/media/gallery/2019/jun/15/the-photography-of-john-downing It's astonishing to see that the Daily Express alone employed 64 photographers in the 60's.

Re: An asset summary

With all due respect to m'learned friend I totally disagree with him, the reason being that the Will is often not read until after the funeral has ta...

Re: Shoes on or off when visiting?

It used to be the case with me than anybody with a sense of smell preferred me to keep my shoes on and sealed, but that magically changed, for no apparent reason about 20 years ago. Yes, exactly the same thing happened to me. Ever since I was a teenager I'd been cursed with awful, sweaty feet. The ...

I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. But like a couple of other posters I'd agree that the car has to go.

Re: The future of jobs

So I don't buy the theory that automation will do away with jobs. Rather it replaces lower-level jobs with higher-level jobs. So the advice is as it always was - the best careers will continue to be in knowledge work and services - IT, healthcare, law, finance, professional services etc. Law and me...

Re: Watching girls dance

In my very dim and distant youth I was a huge fan of Northern Soul, and used to attend various highly disreputable night clubs, such as The Twisted Wheel in Manchester, that specialised in playing the music. Whilst I loved (and still love) the music, it was played largely because it was great dance ...

My suspicion is it will go lower. 380 and I will be joining you. Now down to 398, and extremely tempting. I suspect that a significant reason for its becoming so tempting is the fall in the oil price to around $67 for Brent Crude. It must be quite a rare event that dropping POO is welcomed with ope...
