Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

I have given Talk Talk a nudge on our Business Broadband dashboard messaging, still no response. It's still marked as an open repair ticket with a note for customer response which I have done twice now. I will be asking for a refund when it's sorted for loss of service.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I remember them saying that gloves were counter productive as covid protection. Much better off using the hand gel on the way in and out and then washing your hands when you get home.

I will check the PayPal balance later and report back.

Graham, I will PM you some details. A cheque would be fine, I could pay it into the post office then transfer it to the site PP account. Alternatively I will send you my backup account details that you could try, saves on the postage. :extrawink:

Aldi was back up to about 50% of customers wearing masks yesterday morning when we called. Plus all the staff of course. Reasonably busy as well.

Re: Bathroom Rework

Well, lots of progress made today. Vinyl laid and the rest of the wall panels fitted. Here is the washbasin corner and the front wall round to the window. Braced until the fillers, glues and sealants cure properly. https://www.oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/app.php/gallery/image/23575/medium Following roun...

23rd September 2020 was when you donated last time China and that was via PayPal at the time. Yes they do charge fees but there are few alternatives for the site without a lot of hassle. We could go down the Virgin Money Giving route if I wanted to bash myself over the head repeatedly with the chang...

Roman Marble Kev. Related and interesting, I found a length of twisted newspaper used for packing when they took the original washbasin cupboard out. It was the front page of the Barlick and Earby Times from August 1998. I think we had the last refurb around September of that year. The headline was ...

The current balance will only just cover the next two months of I/P leasing bills and will leave nothing for the December quarter hosting fees. My name is on the lease so to speak if we run out of brass and I have a new bathroom to pay for. :extrawink:
