  1. You don't need to be an academic, just have an interest in the BBC radio soap The Archers: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/academic-archers-2019-in-sheffield-tickets-46680949978?fbclid=IwAR3pAjFhyBJmAR5wBFnkkMyAa65gqWQOyUExghKtkZNc2TRuyJmeNGMPIIM Fans are coming from all over the country
  2. I'd like to recommend (and thank) handyman Lee Rodgers. He's done an amazing job redecorating for me. I thought I was going to need to get so many different tradespeople in but he's dealt with everything. He works really quickly; I can see why he's earned the nickname leapy Lee! He's also very tidy. I'll be asking him to come back and decorate other rooms for me when he's free. Lee's contact number is 07946 237 432.

    DASS insurance?

    Your Nan needs to call her bank and ask for the details of the company the payment is being made to - they will have the company name and may even have a contact number. She also needs to ask for the originator code (6 digits - it's the sort code of the bank account your Nan's money is being paid to) and the payment reference number. The payment reference number is likely to be her account number with the company she's paying - so it should make it easier for her to get through any security checks when she calls them.
  4. If it was a polling card you were sent (I'm guessing it was as you say you were sent one "to go in person") you don't need it to vote. As long as you're on the electoral register you can vote. More info here: https://www.gov.uk/voting-in-the-uk/polling-stations
  5. I shall always remember John as a man of caring and warmth - I think of him and I think of his grin and twinkly eyes. He was brilliant company, full of fun and able to quote poetry for any occasion. I remember John as someone who had a way of drawing people to him and I remember his love of the ridiculous ("Your sister can't have Pobble toes, Siân. Pobbles don't have toes!") I remember John as someone with real love for his fellow man, who left a positive mark on this world and whom it was a real privilege to know. My heart goes out to (nobike) John and (Supra) Steve as well as other members of his family I didn't meet. This must all feel so unreal. You know what an amazing person John was better than anyone else but people around Sheffield are grieving along side you.
  6. I'm not sure how a transcript of a programme is going to help you? Are you wanting to check which experts were used? I wasn't having a pop - I was pointing out that your assertion that the legal position the landlord who called the radio programme Neeeeeeeeeek listened to was given was wrong, by explaining: 1) Just because the right to entry is written into the tenancy agreement doesn't mean that the landlord won't need to go to court to get that right legally enforced. 2) Radio 4 is very careful with the experts they invite onto their consumer programmes. Whoever gave the advice will have been qualified to do so.
  7. Just because the right to entry is written into the tenancy agreement doesn't mean that the landlord won't need to go to court to get that right legally enforced. Whilst not infallible, the consumer programmes on Radio 4 do not tend to use experts who wax lyrical on aspects of the law in which they're not trained.
  8. I would contact the Claims Management Regulator and see what they have to say: http://www.justice.gov.uk/claims-regulation I'd also contact the Information Commissioner: http://www.ico.gov.uk/complaints.aspx What you have described sounds very like a breach of the Data Protection Act (unless you supplied this company with your number yourself). As you should be able to show financial loss, it is worth pursuing. To the person who asked about making a PPI mis-selling complaint - never do it through one of these third party complaints firms. They do not do anything you can't do yourself and they charge exorbitant rates for very little. Money Saving Expert has an excellent guide on how to make a PPI claim: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/reclaim/ppi-loan-insurance#faq
  9. Any chance I could get a lift with you and your successful moon cadette? I've always fancied seeing Saturn. I'll check on Google maps but I don't think it's too far out of your way.
  10. What you've done so far sounds great! If he's keen on art/craft maybe he could do a little map of his community. It'd be interesting to see what it's like through his eyes.
  11. This thread has cheered me up no end. I always thought that at 5' 3.5" I should be between 8-9 stone (no idea what I do weigh as I don't do scales, I just go on how my clothes feel) I still need to lose weight - I don't need scales to tell me that - but it's nice to know I don't need to lose as much as I thought I'll be absolutely no help on the exercise front but from a psychological approach I heard about a 'technique' recently where, instead of being asked to keep a food diary, people who were trying to lose weight had to take pictures of everything they ate during the day. You might also like to have a look for some of Deepak Chopra's stuff on healthy eating. I found it helped me to get my head around changing my attitudes towards food.

    There was indeed - I asked Roy to post this so I could add the picture he's been trying to post a link to. The link has been added to the OP
