Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

My windows get remarkably grimy to say we are up on the top of a hill and miles from anywhere. In winter I put it down to the wood burner but it's the same in summer! Ours only get done when visitors are expected (or twice a year if no visitors :laugh5: )and I can persuade Colin to do the job.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Bloody hell Maz you are tough down there! You would be too young to claim Attendance Allowance here anyway, it's for the over 65s. Just another small but important point, the Macmillan cancer support organisation, the same as with any hospice in this country is a charity and is not government or tax...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Maz, Attendance Allowance isn't about attending hospital, it's a benefit which goes towards paying for someone to attend to you if you need care at home. I'm sure that all Stanley has done is to send for the forms to fill in if he needs to, which is very wise considering his age ... cancer or no can...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

It's not that long since the BT engineers would visit you if you had a fault and explain what it was and what they were going to do, ringing once it was fixed to check everything was back on ok. We got to know the local lads quite well. Colin reported our recent fault online, set up the contact numb...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

It doesn't quite work like that in rural areas Ian, we aren't 3 miles from the exchange at Colne but can't get broadband at all. The lines are ancient and BT has never been prepared to upgrade them. Talking of phone lines ours was finally fixed yesterday after 8 days!

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Boundless who provide our connection are doing a great job in Yorkshire and Lancashire getting a wireless connection to outlying communities where the phone line doesn't support broadband. I think there is an initial cost of £120 for the connection and we get their cheapest package at £24.99 a month...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I slow roasted a breast of lamb hacked into pieces because i couldnt be bothered to debone it. Plenty of chopped onion, garlic and pepper gave it a lovely flavour. We also had some roasted butternut squash and red cabbage from the garden with cauli and broccoli. The red cabbage cooked to a crisp but...

A wet walk up Weets for us this morning. We went widdershins, up Folly Lane over the top and back down Lister Well Lane. It was a good trial for my rather expensive but very effective Rohan Dry Roamer walking trousers! They are waterproof, windproof and wonderful, and if anyone checks on the price m...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

That's slightly more reassuring Stanley. Like Dave, Colin hasn't had a scan or blood tests that would check for cancer in the system even though the bladder tumour was his second experience of cancer. I wonder if it is due to your age or the smoking that they are checking you over so thoroughly?

Our landline failed on Monday afternoon.

The phone cable runs underground beside the road....... It could be a whi...
