Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Both hubby and I own our phones, with no plans involved. We buy a recharge when topping up is required. I have not bothered setting up data on mine, I just use it as a straight phone/camera, so I did not download the App. Hubby has data set up on his phone, as he likes to keep an eye on his work ema...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We worked out that it costs about 4p every time you scan. This can add up over a week/month. We just wish that shopping centres had one QR sign in code, but here it is every single shop within the centre, regardless of if you are buying a newspaper or loaf of bread or sausages from the butcher etc. ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Hubby has the same thing, but declares he will sign into QR code’s with pen and paper from here on in. He objects to costs from QR code’s. Why should anyone profit from a scan deemed necessary by the government? :laugh5: We are doing the right thing, scanning our way every where we go, giving the go...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

One of the things hubby wanted to ask his Telco, is that he is charged every time he scans a QR code.
Yes folks, every time you scan to protect you and the public...government driven...there IS a data charge, that YOU pay for.
They do not tell you this.
Be aware.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Stood in a 25 min Covid distanced line today to ask our Telco some questioned. We got closer and closer to the desk at snail space, creeping quietly past those being served. To our left was a same sex couple (female, with one obviously extremely butch) with a boy about 20 month’s old . I have absolu...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

When my first hubby and I had two old family clocks ( which went with him when he left as they were his family treasures), he insisted the workings be sprayed with fly spray at certain times ( he believed the oil in flyspray was what clocks needed) and the windings be counted and done at regular int...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I have decided not to post on this topic any more, which is a shame, as there are so many topics that are so localised to your area, I can not comment on them (everything from Flatley driver to Politics, Medical matters etc.). It terribly disappointing. About the only topics I can comment on now are...

We can no longer tell our kids what to do, but they are not yet at any point of power to tell us what to do either. We hope to chart our own course for some time yet.

We love our kids but do not “obey their every word”. That would be getting into scarey territory. We are still at the helm, and have control.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Only time will tell. Unfortunately, you guys have to do the time. That means mental health will suffer, relationships will suffer and children will suffer. That is aside from businesses and the travel industry etc.

I don’t know if the world will truly be the same after this.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I noticed the figures coming down. Which is a great relief.
However, the deaths will trail the figures by at least 28 days+.

Could be that the blue stuff is just for fridge and freezer and pantry, which is how I use them. Have I seen green stuff??? My brain tells me yes...but I don’t own any green stuff :good:

Nearly 110,000 dead in UK. I was telling Cathy today, that to put those figures in perspective, it would wipe out the entire coastal town I live in 6x over.

Nah...I am not ready for food in a cup yet...if they don’t get washed thoroughly, they are germ factories. Too many nooks and crannies... I like their other products for the freezer though, and use them regularly. I just never reheat the food in them. I certainly don’t eat out of them. I have the Le...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I was unaware what was going on at the Medical Centre desk as hubby was paying and checking out because I had to stay away due to Covid rules, but apparently he had to “tap and go” twice. Once was to pay the £35 and the second time was to instantly claim £25 back....so the whole thing only left us £...
