1. Wait until the adults are somewhere else and the kids are on the trampoline and then squirt the hose at them ' accidentally' of course. When the parents complain deny all knowledge of it. Repeat this exercise numerous times or until said trampoline is moved to an area away from the fence where yo...

I had a similar exerience as your neighbour once. A neighbours new single story building had been painted EXCEPT for the wall facing me. After 12 months of waiting & waiting & waiting I'd had enough and painted it for him. After all I was the one looking at it. He wasn't very pleased. I told him I r...

Lets face it if the Government is doing this of the £6 half will go on administation, £1.50 will go in fees to their mates on the QANGO they set up to run it, and the rest will be spent on equipment that is out of date or unsuitable. Therefore the tax is a bad idea. Well you won't catch me being cy...

£6 a year is fine by me. :) I realise that the world is changing and the speed of change is getting faster. Many of the older people who use this forum are scared of change. :shock: We already live in an electronic world where £millions of sales take place on the internet. In fact many businesses ha...

The person who owned the flat upstairs put his property on the market and preseted the property as having use of her garden. A very silly thing to do if its not true as this would leave the seller open to a claim for damages from the new owner.......although the legal process should identify such a...

If there is a freeholder/ property management company they will know the contact details of all the flat owners to enable them to serve ground rent and service charge bills.

Its wrong to generalise as different areas of the country are affected differently......but thats how most of the press reports are written unfortunately. In my area there has been a small (perceived) rise in prices which we believe has been caused by the shortage of property on the market. There IS...

In answer to the subject question.....the sunshine is mainly in Spain,. Very occasionally someone travelling back from Spain will capture a small amount of it (usually whilst closing their suitcase) and bring it back to the UK......which is what we will be getting this weekend. Forget the sunshine.....

Hi thin and crispy, thank you for your help. We use a Fuji Finepix F401 at the moment, it is ok but getting old and doesn't cope with low light very well at all. In fact it blurs almost every photo which is getting to be an annoyance. You might find that a model with a good image-stabilisation syst...

That camera would be a great pocket snap one for me as it is smaller than the ones we are currently looking at. It doesn't have a powerful enough zoom or enough mega pixies...
