Re: Children at Uni

Would Miss B be able to form a company, Miss B Ltd, to render her services to the university for the purpose of learning? She could then claim tax relief on expenses?

Removing adhesive from Amtico tiles

I am relaying some Amtico floor tiles that are lifting off the floor.
We were warned some lifting might occur, the floor is concrete and damp.
Before the tiles were laid (professionally), a latex membrane was put in.
Amtico has since [more]

Re: Downton

Do you remember those silly schoolboy (schoolgirl) games like "bo***cks" where you just slip (shout) things unobtrusively into regular school conversations/lessons.

Our school song was 'Jerusalem'. To hear the rousing chorus [more]

Re: The average working life isn't long enough..

People don't get taught to budget and plan for the future at school or at home.

Budgeting presupposes you earn enough to cover your outgoings including managing debt.

Planning for the future assumes you'll live that long.

Wimbledon 2015

I'm gutted Scotland did not achieve independence today

England was finally looking forward to disowning Andy Murray once and for all come next Wimbledon.

Re: He's gone !

Whatever people think of his style, I reckon AS deserves something in the New Year Honours List.

He has helped make history for Scotland, only about 400,000 votes difference, equivalent to the population of a NW London Borough!

History of Scotland

The 18th of September 2014 has been heralded as a unique day in Scotland's history.

The vast majority of the population not only got up in the morning, but actually left the house to go somewhere other than the pub.

"What are the best seats you have for Singing In The Rain?" I asked the girl at the box office. "It's my wife's birthday tonight."

Re: Cruising

Cabin selection is also about where you'd feel most comfortable sleeping, whether the cabin is on the inside without windows/portholes or outside, and if outside whether overlooking a deck or directly facing the sea. Some prefer to be in the bowels [more]

Re: Yellow jackets

Why do people counting votes have to wear yellow jackets?

Wearing yellow jackets makes them feel more important.
I'd have though the more important attribute would be the ability to count under pressure.

Scotland pollster

I gather the referendum question was: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"

Does 'No' refer to independent or country?

Re: Scottish Independance

I see all the Polish bricklayers are disappointed this morning.

They were set to make a fortune, rebuilding Hadrian's Wall.

My wife is very fond of precious stones. Personally I'd be happy if she got rid of a few pounds.

Re: Scotland Independence

Result

As I woke up this morning to see the results of the Scottish referendum I was pleased; but also a little sad.

Re: Scotland says No to Independence

Listening to the disappointment in some voices interviewed on the BBC radio this morning, I felt sad that Scotland has said no, albeit relieved to have made more than my wager.
