Nice work if you can get it.

Former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne supplements his earnings as an MP with £800k for a few speeches and a £650k salary for 'advising' on one day a week.

His advisory work means he follows the path of a former colleague (no jobs for the boys there, then) and is working for a company who moved into the UK market to make money following a change in the pensions rules.

Obviously just coincidence these changes happened during Osborne's period in office. I'm sure he deserves every penny.

Osborne's pension revolution can't be ignored at BlackRock - Citywire

Well I wish you a little break from the stress, even if just walking the dog. It used to help me, I think.

When Shaw came to install cable at the new apartment they took our old box and replaced it with the so called new and improved box.

Old box only showed the channels you actually receive in the guide making it easy to browse and choose.

New box doesn't do this, it shows every single channel option Shaw offers which is frustrating as heck.

Yes, I remember that. They're just teasing...showing you what you are 'missing' in the hope you'll add stuff.
