General / Re: Old man stuff – endoscopy
« on: 25 March 2019, 01:35:41 PM »
I`ve had a few endoscopys in the past 15 years or so, both sedated and under local anasthetic ( throat spray) Had numerous  biopsys taken as I was part of a study into Barretts Oesophugus. Cant say the throat spray is very comfortable but at least I could get myself to the Hospital and home again without having to get someone to take me home. If you don`t mind the discomfort of knowing whats going on all the time throat spray is probably the best option. Good luck whichever way you chose to go.

I went into Halfrauds a few weeks ago, got to the checkout and before i`d finished paying  they asked me for my email address. "what do you want that for? Oh I know, so you can flood my inbox with rubbish that is of no iterest to me whatsoever" The guy on the checkout got quite shirty with me because I refused to give it. :finger :foc

Spent over an hour on the phone today sorting out my log in details for my J Lewis partnership card. over the weekend they have updated!!!! their website so you now have to re-register, thought I had it done but no, if you put the wrong username or password three times it locks your account so you have to phone up customer services to reset your account. All I got was a message saying  "due to the high volume of calls all our agents are busy, we will connect you to the next available agent" After I eventually got through the young lady I spoke to put me on hold for another 5mins while she reset my account, if everybody has the same trouble as me it`s no wonder they are busy   :wall

Drivers who pull out in front of you when there are no vehicals behind you and then proceed to drive at their comfort speed of about 30mph  :wall

General / Re: Caught @ 160 mph
« on: 23 August 2016, 09:28:55 PM »
According to what was reported about a driver caught doing 154mph in his car (posted on here a few weeks ago) as long as there is no accident involved and he is tried in a magistrates court  it is an offence that doesn`t carry a custodial offence and only about a six month ban  plus points and a fine.

Probably a long shot but a mate of mine had trouble starting his car, bought a new battery but it cured nothing, turned out it was a bad earth, might worth checking.

Grahamm--- Secret ballot my arse, I went to the polling station, gave the girl my details which she verified on the list, gave my reference no to another girl where it was verrified again, she passed it on to the man who gave me my voting paper that has a foccin serial no on it! I said how come this has a serial no on it and he said you can only get to vote without a serial no on it by authorisation of a high court judge.

I think the P plate is voluntary in this country unlike France where they are compulsory and new drivers are restrited to about 90kph, also they are not allowed to drive at night.

I think it would be a good idea to restrict the horsepower/ maximum speed of new drivers for about a year so daddy cant go out and buy their little angel a top of the range car capable of doing silly speeds but that of course would infringe their human rights.   :deal

General / Mobile phone woes
« on: 17 February 2016, 07:19:41 PM »
I`ve got a Motorolla Moto E (2nd generation) with 4G LTE with BT mobile. I`m having trouble getting the phone to stay connected when I make a call, it disconnects after about 30 seconds even with a full signal and full battery. Been through all the settings and cant find anything that may be causing the problem. Can anybody help please.

« on: 17 February 2016, 11:51:08 AM »
Went on the Hovercraft probably around  4 times, very loud and bumpy but I loved it. Last time I used it I got talking to an American family who had been told about it. It was about as rough as it could get before they cancelled it due to the weather. Realy was an intersting crossing! When we got to Calais the woman was green, dont think she thought much of it  :eek :lol

General / Re: Tablet Advice For 11yr Old
« on: 22 January 2016, 03:58:15 PM »
I bought a Lenovo tablet from Jonn Lewis and after about a year the charging port started to play up and eventually it refused to charge at all, took it back to J Lewis and they sent it back to Lenovo who said it was down to mis-use on my part and although still under warrenty they wanted to charge me nearly £90 to repair it. J Lewis got in touch and said did I want it repaired or sent back to me without repair so I said send it back without repair (stiil waiting to get it back).
 After searching online for tablet repairs I came upon a link where other people had the same problem as me where the tablet wouldn`t charge
(Lenovo) so I`m not impressed with Lenovo or J Lewis` 2 year warrenty as they seem to have washed their hands of the problem.  :o
