Re: Angry?

You might even be tempted to think that being hanged for stealing a silk handkerchief (therefore a wealthy person's handkerchief) or sent to Oz for having a meeting unapproved by Parliament might be...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Oh, I don't know! In the press this morning, it says that one Nigel Garage is trying to return to front line politics to upset Mrs May's applecart regarding the Chequers Plan. My suspicion is that...

Re: What a mad world we live in......

Having read it properly again, it wasn't in the complaint, and her granddaughter said that she made no such complaint. It was, she said, made up by the newspaper. The complaint was about two...

Re: What a mad world we live in......

I just read the story in the Mirror on line, and the story is rather different from the "too many Spaniards" one. Seems that she and her friend, who went with her, were compensated because their...

Re: Angry?

So who is pretending that a problem doesn't exist? I certainly am not; however, my cousin does tar all with the same brush. You don't get anywhere by doing that - except make a bad situation...

Re: Router Problems

Well, if the router is prevented from working by interference by a more powerful one, then surely it's better to use a temporary ethernet cable than having a laptop that can't receive/send emails,...

Re: Router Problems

One of our secretaries wasn't very tall, even wearing her 4 inch stilettos. The snag was, one day, a heel went down into a gap in the floor, and she was stuck there. Someone had to almost lift her...
