Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

Why does anyone entitled to a state pension ever admit to leaving the UK? Not hard to find an address to have mail sent to, and the powers-that-be have very little idea where people are.. If only it were that simple - nowadays there are so many things that you have to declare to various institutes ...

Re: What is your Passion in Life?

Although you may have a lifetime passion that stays with you for decades, it’s also possible for your passions to change over time. I played football from late teens until 40 years of age, not at the highest standard but it was still enjoyable and winning the local minnows Cup was almost as satisfyi...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I thought we played really well, okay it dried up a bit in the 2nd half, but we were by far the better side, as we should have been. I have no idea why Walker had to raise his hands to concede the penalty, by his own admission, he should have just headed it away. But we have to take chances at this...

Re: Birds of Thailand

I’ve been trying to get a decent photo of some birds in our garden for the past few days and this is about the best I have managed because as soon as I get close, one or both fly off. What it is is the “mother” bird which is a Minah feeding its “baby” which as you can see is 2-3 times it’s size - s...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Well in my naivety, yes I do expect the VAR refs to be impartial, but maybe they are paid by Putin? As for Kane, you are correct in that there is no comparison between his game and Ronaldo’s, although to give him credit, he seems to have a knack for scoring goals, something painfully in short supply...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Surprised that I’m the first to comment about England’s win last night - not the greatest game but England were deserved winners on the balance of play and could have had a few more, including two legitimate penalties had the VAR guys been more honest, especially bearing in mind the one they gave Tu...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

I managed to find a copy Huge data checking exercise finds mistakes in pension payments Thousands of retired workers face cuts to state or workplace pensions But some ex-employees may have their pensions increased Rodney Smith, a retired economist living in Scotland, is one of a growing number of ex...

Re: Birds of Thailand

All I can say is that we are inundated with birds nests - dozens in our garden and they do make a mess so I’m forever clearing them out after they have been used.

Re: British home comfort food?

Today, the main ingredients of Marmite are glutamic acid-rich yeast extract, with lesser quantities of sodium chloride, vegetable extract, spice extracts and celery extracts, although the precise composition is a trade secret. Although your quote is correct, it is only a brief extract of the full c...
