      Help To Buy ISA

      Tell them to blow £1500 a year and have a stinking good time before they have to settle down. On a more sensible note there are loads of bits on these - if I recall the guardian money actually did a good write up. From what I recall actually very limited in how they can be used. First property only and as long as the other party if a couple have never had a property

      It’s all to do with volume packing to load out the vans to capacity - a bit like van Tetris thats what I was told when I asked
    3. If they are German then it’s probably the German town of registration which is usual - a bit like BUXX ABC here BU being Birmingham. The usual is you can drive the car for 6months if you are a non resident - people usually run them back home for a month or so then come back with them. I do know of cars that are only used to travel and while at home and are kept garaged in between times and not used on the road. If you are a ‘resident’ it’s usually 2 weeks before you need to register. Report it and also mention it’s being used daily - there are ways to check when a car came in and if it has gone out
    4. You see it a lot - one mans enough room is another’s wait. To be fair He did tank on it a bit and no attempt to ease off for the mini round about We have a side junction locally right before a humped chicane with the priority set up from the direction of the junction the amount of times people pull out and enter the priority causing the other car going for a clear gap to have to anchor on is unreal I have priority is the usual call - but you didn’t until you pulled out onto the road a car length infront of the priority humped chicane - horribly planned junction.

      tent frame

      I have seen some structures made recently from waste pipe with the epoxy angles with linghome made n shaped pins across the bottom runners to keep them down They seem to have stood up well and extra bits can be added by just cutting in. Also light weight enough to move complete if needed

      Air fryers

      One if they guys bought one for the office...... he decided it was carp and never used it again.... when we looked he had filled it to the brim with oil - aka a deep fat fryer.
    7. When I have sold cars for upto a couple of grand I have asked for cash - mrs taken it straight into the bank, run through their machine all checked and good to go and done the paperwork. They have all been happy enough for it to happen that way while we had a brew and prepped the paperwork anything over was bank transfer as said above both there. As soon as it hit the account I moved it to our attached savings instantly just incase
    8. Brill - i will have a look when i get home Last night i changed windows update to the longest time setting before searching as it was set very low and i also put the antivirus updates to every couple of days instead of every day. Many thanks for your help and i will get onto it as soon as i get in
    9. Right. Win 10 Home intel i3 1.7ghz 8gb RAM avira anti virus
    10. I will check when i get home as im not that tech savvy - Windows 10
    11. Probably 2 years or so - i have upgraded the RAM to 8gb but to swap the HDD requires the removal of the keyboard - a little to complex for me
    12. I am in need of a cheap laptop for a course - I’m not tech savvy so will be used for word processing and internet. I have an asus 555L and it spends more time clonking about and takes forever to load - I actually had to walk away this evening before punching it. I can’t swap the hdd as it’s underneath the keyboard with no rear access any ideas on cheap and cheerful? in a side not it’s just takes 5mins to boot and is still clunking away - I can type quicker than it can and I only use 1 finger!!
    13. Fair one ... pigeon pie for dinner. Lol
    14. The kids have put play to that - and knowing my luck it would be a top class racer!!
    15. We have a racing pigeon taken up residence in our garden. It’s been with us now for 8 weeks - disappears for a bit during the day but is back on the windowsill and in the garden mid afternoon it’s taken to roosting on the sill during harsh weather and at night, I think it’s taking its toll as it’s looking a bit windswept - and my windowsill requires cleaning regularly! i was thinking of a box or similar, the basis being if it’s a bit like a loft box it maybe tempted to stay in there? No one has got back to us regarding its collection so it looks like it’s staying. Anyone know if anything suitable?
