Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Since hubby has qualified for cheaper drugs, he gets so confused that they change shape/colour/ packaging so often. I have to sit beside him and talk him through the changes, reading the packets and telling him they are the same drugs. I can understand how it gets confusing for some. He really stru...

Re: Claiming Overpaid Tax

Only one employment (or Pension) source can have a normal tax code on it, all other pay sources of income have to have 0T codes(*), this does mean more tax paid, but they would rather they have it, and then pay it back, than for you to realise you need to pay a bill which you might not have funds fo...

Grudging tribute has been paid even by critics, it has been remarkably efficient. According to PE this was bu...

Note in Barcroft papers by Wilfred Spencer. "A whelp is the name given to upright stones in an arch". The only meaning I knew was an archaic name for a pup. Britannica seems to use "upright supports". These may also be pillars or abutments. Is he refering to a 'Flat Arch' - presumable with additona...

If they had any sense they should be selling it off. I would go for Ireland, or a Western Isle.

Some people consider peonies a waste of space especially up here in Lancashire where the weather is against you. I've known people dig them up for this very reason. One big advantage is that their dark green leaves last until autumn so there is still a contrast of colours. With over ½ acre of actua...
