  1. Did you just steal that from my FB page?
  2. Look, I have seen criticism of the Police and care home here. The responsibility for this whole situation was the Daughter of the lady in the care home. Being callus and ignoring the relationships issues here (which you have to do) Police were called to the reports of an assault at the home after she got violent because the care home had refused hand to hand contact with her mother. As the Police were on the way this then became a kidnapping. The care home had legal responsibility for the lady in care, not the family. By Law the Police had absolutely no choice but to take her away and return h
  3. With all the uncertaincy over lockdown and the fact both my Garage and my Mother in Laws are full of stuff, I have taken the decision to Store my car in a temp controlled lockup and SORN it till Spring. It's not too bad cost wise but I just won't use it during lockdown and then the weather may be shitty. Sad really as she is running sweet as!!
  4. I'm sorry, all I did was post up about the weapons of mass distruction!
  5. I don't support Trump @Loquacious Lew He's far to far to the right for me. However I could tell last time he came back from a long way behind to win so had a bet ages ago when he was 15 points behind. Got bloody good odds. I agree with this guy (he's a satirist but tells people how it is)
  6. LMAO Polls had Biden landslide and already looks like its too close to call. Just the hung states to come in and last time they went with Trump. Just like Florida just has!! My Bet may come off!
  7. Reckon they are being paid off by Amazon!!
  8. @Barrykearley I am with you. My boss told me weeks ago, that if we have another lockdown, half our franchises won't survive, especially the Airport based rental companies. Half our franchises means half our staff. Its a real worry. How on earth you can be worried about the spread yet leave young people to mix at school and colleges and then go back to their homes to spread it even further is madness! Either lock down or don't! I drove past Hethersett High School last week during leaving time and I didn't see a single mask and there was definately no social distancing!

    I wouldn't invest in any car company or anyone involved with cars right now. technology is moving so quickly and there is about to be a whole explosion of fucked off people learning that their Electric battery packs have only lasted 3-5 years instead of the 10-12 they were told and they want £8000 to replace them on a car worth £3000. Many of the first "true" production Electric cars like the leaf are now hitting older age and Electric is about to get to be a very difficult thing. Manufacturers that have put all their eggs into that basket are about to have a nasty shock. There are rumour

    Aviva is announcing newer and better profits regularly, especially as everyone had to have their insurance on vehicles/Houses etc but no one was using them so less accidents. People were also in their houses all the time so less burglaries, less house fires because people were there to put them out etc etc. Yet! They are almost half of their previous cost. Purely because of the COVID effect! Well worth a look!
  11. Are you calling me a Kanye?
  12. What are these "Tools" you speak of?

    My G4S shares have a hostile takeover happening. They are currently at 207p and the Company trying to take them over is offering 130p + 30%. How on earth does that work? So if they are successful then they get the company at a hugely cheap price! And 207 doesn't really reflect the companies value as its low because of COVID!
  14. I can't say mate. its not a question I asked her.
  15. I'm sure many of you know what I do part time. Just recently I had an experience that changed my mind a little on this subject. We were called to a truck with "Movement" being heard in the back, by the driver. On opening it up we found 6 illegals who had sneaked into it maybe at a truck stop he parked at overnight before crossing the channel. 5 of them were young African men, of course they all said they were under 18 didn't have any ID etc etc. Normal situation. However one was a early middle aged woman who I dealt with because I was the only one with a female crew partner.
  16. She's gone. God I'm gonna miss her but not as much as my Son. She has been his constant companion for 15 years and always helped with his aspbergers. She settled right at the end like she knew it was time. And let them put a line in. Glad I was there with her talking to her as she fell asleep. RIP Pickle, go get those squirrels.
  17. Vet is coming at 2.30 today and I have felt sick to the pit of my stomach since the call yesterday. I know its the right thing but I both dread it for myself as I am the only one here to hold her and I dread it for her because....well the obvious. @comem47sorry mate I didn't know about you awaiting a transplant. Big hugs back to you.
  18. Covid virus ‘survives for 28 days’ on hard surfaces. Is it just me or should we have known this 29 days after the outbreak??
  19. I drive a Niro PHEV. I need the range an engine gives me for work but find its so handy running around locally on electric. So far I have done 5000 miles in it and have an average fuel consumption of 279 mpg. And it saves me an absolute fortune in Company car tax!
  20. Thanks everyone. I have read most of these posts with tears in my eyes. The human capacity for love is amazing, especially when its for a 4 legged friend. As i look down to my right shes sitting there, shaking a bit with the effort to be up and about. Last night she pooped on the floor and there was blood in it. So I am petrified but will be making a call to the vet tomorrow. She's an absolute fighter and despite her legs going with the stroke she still tries to crawl upstairs to be with my son. Everytime we think she's going she gets a second wind. She slept all day today and hadn't move
  21. Happy Birthday my friend! Hope to see you soon.
  22. So the City takes the national govt to court as it says the lockdown is illegal AND unnecessary. They win against the National Govt! So the National Govt announces a State Emergency and locks the City down anyway. Look, is it just me or is there just a bit a cynicism that people/Gvts are using some of this for their own ends? I don't disagree that its serious here and things need to be done but this looks just like politicking to me!
  23. What dogs are those and would one of the puppies be available to a good cause?
  24. My poor baby Girl is slowly passing away in front of us. Its a hard thing to admit after 19 years of protecting the house, being annoying, keeping dad fit by demanding walkies all the time, loving just being with us and more importantly being my son's constant companion through his Aspergers, since he was 3 years old. She had a stroke Friday and stopped eating 2 days ago. Now she is so weak she sleeps until Joe comes home from work, managers to sit up to get a cuddle from him then goes back to sleep. The vet says she isn't in pain and its a good death to let her slowly pass awa
