Suspect my years of sporting prowess along with an over physical job is to blame for these little joys and so far just the four to contend, ranging from tennis and golfers elbows, a groaning achilles tendon and joys of Osteitis Pubis to round things off nicely.
Moan over !!

Don't worry, give it another ten years and the benefit of waking up with all those aches and pains is that you know you're still alive. Trust me on that.

I've learned not to rush putting on a pair of trainers before i go off to work, as that seems to be number one for causing a back tweak.....luckily the back is currently playing ball but usually once a week the back brace gets a run out as well :D

On the Palace web site when they have reports of Academy games they have photos of players in action from the games but never put captions under the photos saying who the player in the picture is.

Very frustrating for anyone not overly familiar with the players.

I buy the cheap 17p for 2litres bottled water as it doesnít instantly clog up my coffee machine with scale. The one that I really donít understand is the nestle one which is tap water passed under a uv light and ďtreatedĒ. It then gets a £1.50 price tag slapped in it.

That 17p would buy you 114 litres out of your tap. :)

I’ve met two people who don’t drink tap water, only bottled. I regret never really prying into why they do that, it is very odd and wasteful from my perspective too.

Stick a filter on your tap, job's a good 'un.

£30 at Wickes (pre Brexit pricing) for a self-tapping, er, tap.

At my current rate of consumption it would take 4 years to pay that back let alone the fitting, then the cost of the filters. But thanks for the tip.

Does the environmental cost of the 176 plastic bottles, manufactured and subsequently destined for landfill, required to meet your preference, not enter your conscience?

They're as bad with darts. They think the whole concept is hitting the bull. A player scores a 180 and you'll hear a polite clap. Another thrower errantly hits a bulls-eye while aiming for a 25 and the place erupts.

No one drinks tap water in Andalucia, unless they want to get kidney stones from all the cal in it. We have our own well, which is fed by the mountain streams. Still use a Brita filter too

I can, it's true. I thought to share with my bro or find a charity to share to... but of course there's a fee for doing that.

They couldnít wait to bounce me out of silver class after cancelling 5 of my flights

Johnnieboy 27-09-2021 02:13 PM

You could buy a one way UK domestic ticket for next year some time, adjust the avios/cash amount to the lowest cash possible (usually £1) and then cancel it later. You'll lose the pound but get the avios back. That will reset the clock, but if you were still worried book the flight for 11-12 months from now and that gives you another year to reset the clock again by earning some points elsewhere before cancelling.

The AA send me a renewal notice late August 2 months ahead of renewal & 15% more than last year (no call outs) and £90 more than a new member would pay for same cover.

Finally get around to calling them today to cancel and they wont take the cancellation call unless within 14 days of renewal (automated questions upfront). I wonder how many people forget given the renewal notice was so far ahead of the actual renewal to deal with it - very shabby.

RAC are the same but normally quite easy to beat down - which suggests there's still plenty of margin for them.

My original renewal proposal was about 10% higher than for the previous year. I got them to agree to honour the price of the previous year & cover me for 15 months rather than 12 months.

When I said his 1st offer wasn't good enough, he asked 'What do you expect me to do?' so I replied 'I expect you to propose your lowest offer' :supergrin:

Every year I get the AA up my quote. I just phone them up at renewal and ask what they can do for me? Usually about 25 quid gets knocked off. One thing is never have your policy renew automatically and hint that your looking around at other deals when you call them.
If you swap between companies and use a cashback site the are some really great new customer deals to be had.

I’ve not been affected but this whole thing is causing me to become pissed off and has the reverse effect of what they want to achieve.Especially when they are causing mor pollution with all the gridlock they cause.

As clearly these are of no use to such drivers, I have often thought about carrying a hammer in the car so you can, when they next stop, get out and stove in the indicator lamps. If by luck their window is down you could also reach in and rip out the indicator stick.

I find it really scary how many people are believing this stuff. When you look back in history you often wonder, well how on earth did a nation of people believe this or that sufficiently to go to war but then you take some of the more bizarre things that really have traction out there and it's perhaps part of the explanation.

Not sure about anyone else but since the Trump era the news items have become less obviously bizarre and therefore it's becoming increasingly difficult to spot the truth vs fabrication. Just about every issue is bent to a pre-defined viewpoint. I can't imagine how this ever gets straightened out. I don't kid myself that the collective viewpoints of yesteryear were all accurate but I don't fancy future generations chances of working out what's what over the next few decades.

I was commenting on an Ex Pat group that had some filthpot Chileans and a few immigrant gringos being disgustingly racist towards the Haitians and Venezualans - one of them seems a MAGA and another may be Russian.

They are free to post their filth and I get banned for calling them on it.

So much for Faceaches anti.racist policy.

Do people in lincoln not have a choice? Lots of jobs in london to fill and lots of people still claiming dole money.
Its the society we have created that people feel they are too good to do any job.

Shit.

Happened to me once. Now I never travel without a spare fob battery somewhere on the bike.

Everything so far this morning:
Coffee machine playing up
Neighbour parked over our shared side access so I can get the bin out (and he's not answering his door) and it's bin day
DPD turn up with massive parcel that the wife ordered but of course she's still in bed so I have to deal with it.
My cat is a prick.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 30-09-2021 10:24 AM

Go back to bed. Sounds like one of those days.

What was telling was the comment by the factory owner. Yes salaries would go up. BUT then automation would be more viable so less jobs. The result of that would be less tax and NI paid and more unemployed. I wonder if thatís what happened ?

Oh Christ. I must be losing it, that's a big whoosh for me.
Still, it was shocking and certainly anything but funny.

Absolutely no reason given or fathomable.

Only change I can see is the current plan has a $300 deductible, the new offering has a $0 deductible.

Exemption, so absolutely free for me. Save a fortune. :p

Its an interesting debate. I think if I didn't have a job, I had no dependencies (kids from school etc) I would pick them rather than watching daytime TV. If I got a few quid more all the better. Admittedly this would be the last resort after say 6 months of trying to find something else. Last time I was in a similar situation I took lots of temp stuff from warehouse cleaning to envelope stuffing. Maybe it was easier then as the process was made simple by the un employment exchange, to get back on the dole, when a temp contract finished ( some as short as 3 days) with a minimum of fuss.

I am not of the opinion that all unemployed people are scroungers.

Someone has to pay for all the free covid vaccine service given by the US health insurance companies... errr sorry, US health providers.

They are free to post their filth and I get banned for calling them on it.

So much for Faceaches anti.racist policy.

I will be talking to the groups moderators when I get back on.

Maybe Peter, some of the nice mods on this good ship will give you a glowing reference so you can get back to sniping at naughty ex-pats. They can assure the powers that you have got absolutely no previous for lobbing insults or causing havoc among the humble posters of a well known football web-site. I'm sure once they realize what a gem of a poster they have in their midst the moderatoras of Chile will welcome you back with open arms.
