Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

When I checked my email yesterday morning, there was a message indicating a password had been reset on one of my shopping accounts. I immediately went online and changed it. There was no indication...

Re: Meanwhile in Florida

As I read it, he was hammering on the BACK door and then hid in bushes to jump out and surprise him. More like a Darwin nominee. :nod:

Re: WTF in America

I think it should have been negligent homicide (if that were available). Murder, to me, indicates pre-meditation. I don't believe that was the case.

Tragic, however you view it.

Re: Petition : Do not prorogue Parliament. PLEASE SIGN

Yes, we are divided probably more than any time in history. The 'mess' was launched by a massive majority in Parliament thinking there was no chance of the referendum succeeding. They mis-read the...

Re: Petition : Do not prorogue Parliament. PLEASE SIGN

No, they didn't. They negotiated a deal that would leave the UK tied to EU rules in perpetuity but with no control over those rules. They have since refused to consider any changes to said deal,...

Re: Petition : Do not prorogue Parliament. PLEASE SIGN

Let's face it, there was mis-information in both remain and leave camps.

I called their hotline and told them what I was sending and for which years then sent a lump sum. They made a note on my account to that effect. All applied correctly except for one which was short...

Re: Petition : Do not prorogue Parliament. PLEASE SIGN

But the MPs are NOT doing the job they were elected to. If they were, they would be doing everything in their power to get Brexit done.


That ship sailed long ago. The UK is a laughing stock.

Re: Petition : Do not prorogue Parliament. PLEASE SIGN

:goodpost:

So, it has already exceeded the number to be considered by Parliament for debate.

But... How does it get debated if Parliament is shut down?

Re: On the 1st of November, we will be....

Maybe option 4 should be "Delayed (again)". In the absence of that option, I voted 3.

My preference at this time is no-deal.

Re: Let's talk about cars

There were a few reasons but figured we needed to reduce costs and cash out the equity.

There are jobs around here but many are related to military and require security clearance. I may be able...

Re: Let's talk about cars

Ball to bumper, it's 39ft 8in. 3 slide-outs. We bought the new one because we're now living in it since we sold the house. Needed more room.
