Re: Some Wealth is Earned, and Deserved

John, I bought my first 'own house' in 1985 for 15 grand, having worked abroad in a high risk job to get the money together. Getting on the housing ladder was never easy if your parents can't help in any way. It was a former counsel house but gave me the base from which to climb the ladder. Years la...

Re: Some Wealth is Earned, and Deserved

Some have talent, others just work hard, looks like I still have a long way to go...

It's those that make others work in hard and dangerous conditions for a pittance, th...

Re: fuel

Arnie, that's not Bob as such, though he did set the system up. That's the private mail (pm) system. If you want to send a message to anybody just click on their name and you get all sorts of options about how to contact that person, without actually having their address. Also, if you have, in your ...

Re: fuel

Arnie,
that e-mail address does not work.
I had already sent my address to you on your other e-mail and it didn't come back, so should have arrived. Will send it again via a pm on this site, so if they have your actual address you should get it shortly.

Re: fuel

Fuel and just one reason why I despise Merkel: Following the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Merkel had a brainwave and immediately closed down most of Germany's perfectly functioning nuclear power stations. Progressively all nuclear power stations were closed. In doing this she stole the wind out of ...

Re: fuel

Pinky, I hope that you stored some of that heat :lol:. Arnie, I am well aware that you have worked years more than most and, so seen, you have every right to expect to be supported in your later years. And I know all too well that you don't believe that humans have caused/ contribute to 'the speed o...

Re: fuel

Hi John, it's not just the UK, fuel prices are rising everywhere. In Germany the last jump was 13% and yes here too, companies/ suppliers are going bust. Spain is no different, the last jump was 25% :?. So what's going on ? Well, as far as I can see it's the big players crushing the small players to...
