I'll wager the transport manager was none too pleased with the driver. I bet he hit the roof.

I thought it was only accountants and finance staff that did top-slicing.

Hi all Wave This might appear unreal, but amusing if you are not victim. Park your car where you like!

Hi all Wave A news item that has caught my attention. Equity Release, may be a big factor, will explain my reasons. The sixties, seventies & eighties were big city exodus times for so many, either early retirement with moonlighting interests or even those exploiting that scenario of folks with a few bob to spend on luxury items & services. As their funds dwindled, many have turned to equity release. That only lasts fo so long, plus the fact that equity release is as good as giving the property away with cornflakes. The reason being that in less than a decade from the cash release date, more is owed on the property than the property is worth. That is why, inspite of the mass advertising giving some advantages for equity realease, for a couple living in their own house, to release whilst both are still alive, usually leaves the survivor as a prisoner in their own home. This scenario is not just confined to seaside towns, many of our local high value housing estates are in the same "boat", but not in the same volume as being described in this news article. Please don't misunderstand me. I am not totally against equity release, but I do wish that folks understood the implications & risks of doing it.

Seems to me that a lot of people got a bit carried away with England's World Cup performance. Played 5 won 3 against very average, at best, sides, lost 2 against good sides. Read somewhere that people are calling for the Gareth Southgate to be knighted. For what - failing? Thumbs up

Wimero, couldn't agree more, they had an easy draw and failed. Every time they score a goal they think it's enough. Passing to their own goal for an hour will never win matches, but then I no longer know the game, half rugger half football these days. The 'old five' never thought of touching a player's shirt or using the elbow.
