Re: Black Friday

We never go shopping on days like this. Though I must say we got a bargain today which was unexpected. Two days ago we booked a holiday cottage, through the owner, the cottage is also available through an agency at a more expensive price due to their booking fee. Today the agency, who we have used b...

Re: Over 60's hair cut rate:)

John, I have wished so many times that I had the nerve to go to a mens barbers to get the cut I wanted. In our village we have approximately 8 or 9 hairdressers in our village. Some of them charge £40 to £50 for a cut and blow dry. I have tried almost all of them and they don't listen to what you wa...

Over 60's hair cut rate:)

I rang a new hairdresser this morning to make an appointment and asked the young girl on the phone the cost of having my washed, cut and blow dried. She said £25.00 :( Then she said "do you work" I said "yes why", she said well if you didn't work you would pay £16. Then I realise...

Re: Blocking unwanted emails - Help please!!

Hi Dan thank you for your offer. I have attempted to send them every time to my block senders domain name and block sender. Every single time I do it the next day it arrives again. Yet when I block other unwanted emails "viagra etc" they stop. :o The company is called National Inkjets and ...

Re: Christmas Gift Lists

Dan I think that is the way to go. I always make our Christmas meal sometime during the two weeks depending on when my family are available. Full two roast meats and all the trimmings.We love it but soon everyone will be too grown up to come to us and we will be on our own. In which case we will go ...

Re: Doctor's striking?

I don't know about hospitals, Westi, getting an appointment with our doctor is difficult in the extreme. We ring, we get the receptionist, who asks why you want to see the doctor!! Then you have to tell her and then you have to be triaged to the Nurse Practitioner who decides if you can see the Doct...

Re: Electric hedge trimmers

The best hedge trimmer we have ever bought, Monika, was from Aldi. It is a telescopic hedge trimmer with all sorts of bits and pieces and cost £59. It is electric but we have a huge extension so it isn't a problem for us. Definatley worth looking for one from Aldi, very good quality.

Re: Christmas Gift Lists

I think that Christmas has got too commercial and the children these days expect too much. All the electrical stuff is so expensive yet these kids are brainwashed into thinking they need this stuff. I must admit that I am fed up with the length of the adverts between programmes about Christmas on th...

Re: Fresh chicken ummm

Westi I had a chicken sandwich for lunch today with home made veggie soup and it was delightful. We are going to go and buy a few from this chappie as soon as possible, because, honestly it has been the best chicken we have eaten in a very long time. I must admit I object to paying a huge amount for...
