    Just spent some time looking with no success. I have bought a new table lamp with pretty exposed bulb with yellow filament but it's just too bright so what is lesser to a G80 screw-in bulb (think it's E 27 - box says 3000k) which I gather is 60/100w and I probably need 40w but I don't know what to look for - any idea, please.

    My fixed rate energy supply ends at the beginning of March (Octopus). The option to go for a fixed rate no longer seems possible. Good to know: The Energy Price Guarantee The Government has introduced an Energy Price Guarantee that caps variable energy prices at £2,500 for a typical home. This represents a discount of around £1,000 for a typical home compared to the Ofgem price cap for October to December, and is in addition to the £400 Energy Bill Support Scheme that will reduce all monthly payments between October and March, and the further support already announced for low income or vulnerable households. In light of these reductions, we're not currently offering fixed price tariffs — they're simply not a good choice right now. Instead, the best option for you is to roll onto our Flexible Octopus tariff at the end of your fixed term. This will happen automatically: you don't need to do anything.

    I placed an order yesterday and realised I'd put the wrong leg measurement so this morning have been trying to contact the firm to change. The phone number given is priced at 13 per minute plus so tried to do it on line, which gave an 033333 number to ring, looked up the cost of 03333 numbers and it said priced the same as normal charges. So then rang that number only to hear this call is priced at 13p per minute, etc., waited 2 minutes to see if anybody was available to answer, 'even though my call was important to them', then disconnected. Surely if it is classed as a normal charge, they cannot then state call is 13p per minute. I wouldn't mind but I'm ordering for someone else!

    I've just had a list detailing the charges from the solicitors acting as executors for my sister who sadly died earlier this year. The hourly rate or part thereof ranges from £235 to £295 per hour, plus VAT @ 20%, dependent I imagine on who is dealing with what, PLUS - and I quote - The "value element". This is a percentage of the gross value of the Estate, as the monetary value involved is one measure of the extent of responsibility of this firm - end of quote. Just noticed that - quote - 'the value element' is calculated as follows: a) one-half % of the deceased's home plus b) 1% of the gross value of the rest of the Estate. Apparently 'There is no separate charge for my secretary carrying out secretarial work but any worked carried out by her in her capacity as Legal Assistant is charged at £170 per hour (plus VAT).' Before I read the 10 double-sided Terms of Business, I did send an email to them, had a short reply, sent back a thank you email which I now learn will be charged at 6 units of time at £29.50 each email sent and received so by my reckoning I have already charged up just under £90 (plus VAT?). There are seven beneficiaries so does that mean 7 x £29.50 each time they send out an identical email to all and 7 x £29.50 each time the recipient replies?

    November 22 at 9:31 PM · ⚠️🦔⚠️ ATTENTION PEOPLE⚠️🦔⚠️ It is November, the winter hibernation period of Hedgehogs. If you find a "dead" hedgehog, do not bury it, do not throw it in the trash ... We know that no one wants to see a dead animal in the garden etc , but it could be a hibernating hedgehog. Hedgehogs hibernate from November to March, usually burrowing for safety, but since we have less green areas, bushes or forests, it is harder to find safety. Some may come into your homes looking for safety and warmth to hibernate, some are so exhausted from the search that they fall asleep in the strangest of places. When you hibernate, your heart rate and overall body function slows down as a way to conserve energy, which can make it harder to be sure between hibernation and death. If you see a stationary hedgehog, make sure it is in a safe, warm place where it can stay for up to 5 months. If you find a disoriented hedgehog in your garden , house or street, put a cardboard box lined with newspaper in a dry, safe and quiet place for him to rest peacefully Hedgehogs are an endangered species, completely harmless and very important in our ecosystem. Please be careful and protect the hedgehogs, it costs nothing to help such a fragile animal. Please don't ignore it!

    We’re ending our hosepipe ban Hello, We’re pleased to announce that the hosepipe ban is over for everyone across our region. Thank you so much for all your efforts to help save water. What's changed? The wet weather throughout autumn has begun to make a real difference, following on from a year of below average rain. In many places the ground is becoming wet enough for water to sink down into the underground sources that feed local rivers. You’ve played a vital part by using water wisely – we’re really grateful for all you’ve done.

    After my last saga with the basin tap in the bathroom, the mixer tap in the kitchen has been leaking from the bottom for a week or so. As I really would like to change the inset kitchen sink I have, asked on F/book for a plumber for said tap and also mentioned changing the sink. The problem is the worktop is quartz, I've had about 4 plumbers view previously, never hear from them again so this time I mentioned the leaking tap and the possibility of changing sink to an 'old fashioned' slot in over-unit. Had a few replies, one recommended so rang them last week, mentioned the quartz and that nobody wanted to know due to the quartz and he replied no problem at all to us. Anyway, appointment made last week for them to come today between 1 - 5 (4-hour time slot) and at 3.00 nice young lad arrived, looked at the tap and started taking photos on his phone. Yes, I needed new tap as cartridge had probably gone - though I did mention as per our Mr. Bird that they can be replaced for about £10, he said yes, but a lot of fiddling about and easier to change the tap. I asked about changing the sink which apparently was on his work-sheet anyway but he wasn't sure about that. Net result, the office will email me end of week or might be early next week with a quote. I'm very inclined to telephone the firm and ask can they do it or not because I really couldn't see the point of the visit by a young man, hopefully a plumber, taking photos. If they can't, I'll just get the tap changed by (hopefully again) a plumber who will come and look at it and can carry out the task without wasting any more time. I do apologise for rambling on again but these damn plumbers are getting me down!

    Went into the donation page on Facebook this morning to give a donation, filled it out and pressed OK, only then to be asked to give my name/address/email before the donation could be made. The reason I was happy to donate was it was via Paypal which is the only way I will give to any charity as it is anonymous. Due to that, I didn't donate. I could tick boxes saying I didn't want to be contacted either by email or post so why do they need all my details. When will charities take on board that a lot of people don't want to be contacted after a one-off donation.

    If you are looking for new/extra pair of specs, go to the Martin Lewis website where you can currently get a pair for £14. I've just ordered another pair - very, very basic, no frills - as a spare. I did have my eyes tested last month and did purchase from them with the 'extras' involved so prescription was up to date. I did need to phone them with a query (stigmatism in both eyes), answered very quickly and sorted out by them. You can have all the extras and still get a large discount (which I may do later once I've received this pair) but worth looking at if you just want a very basic back-up, just make sure you just keep pressing 'next' and ignoring. Expires 17th November.

    My bathroom lever tap wouldn't turn off this morning, neighbour came in (bet he rues the day I moved here) but couldn't do it and water just gushing out. So having to constantly turn the mains water on again for water. Trying to get a plumber - joke. He went to local plumbers shop who said it would be two weeks for a plumber so book now. I have drains cover, etc., included in house insurance but, guess what, doesn't cover taps. Tried ringing other plumbers and not answering. I'm nervous this constant turning the mains on and off will affect the heating which I've turned to zero and I'm only using cold water when turned on so that I'm not starting the boiler up. Obviously will be needing a new tap. Definitely not feeling young at heart at the moment.

    I am considering having a small chimney breast removed in my small room. I cannot believe what one has to do for this. I know a steel would be needed (although there is no chimney breast above in this hobbit house, who decides the strength of that. I had a private surveyor here yesterday who spent ages telling me that support for shared chimney stack would have to go under floorboards upstairs until I said why can't there just been a steel where the breast would be taken out. Spent an hour on phone for Council Building Control then gave up and I'm totally confused by Party Wall Agreement which can cost in the £1000+ region. Would anyone know if it is correct that a surveyor photos neighbour's wall prior to work being carried out - but if cracks appear a few years later, who pays to put them right, does the original builder have to come back, do you have to pay to have job redone or how long does the P/wall agreement apply? I'm semi-prepared for the cost of all this, not sure yet if I can stand the big upheaval but will turn violent if anybody else says to me what are you gaining.

    My neighbour had his 5-year old grandson with him last week, went out to the ice cream van for two cones with chocolate twirl - cost £7.00. His daughter did the same in different street nearby, gave her son a £10 note for three cones - who then came back for another 50 pence as £10 wasn't enough. Which works out at £3.50 per ice cream. Am I the only one who thinks that is extortionate or is this now the norm.

    I had a fair bit of double glazing renewed and new porch when I moved here by a firm I was very happy with, helped me out when a stable door installed by the builder (provided by them but installed by him) couldn't be locked for a year until they came and refitted at no extra cost as the builder wasn't interested. At the same time, they measured up (twice) and quoted to replace an upstairs window which I can't open/close and make another window plain glass instead of the leaded-light panes already there which I hate. This was a year ago, I received and accepted the quote and I am still waiting. Part of the problem was that my attached neighbour was awaiting the replacement of a porch door letting in rain when the wind was in the wrong direction (insurance claim) so I knew mine wouldn't be done until then and I wasn't particularly bothered. Anyway, porch was repaired yesterday and still nothing about my job though when I queried a couple of weeks ago to ask if I should go elsewhere was assured they still wanted to do it but were still very busy (which I know is true as doing a lot of installations around the area). Decided to get a quote elsewhere which has turned out to be nearly £700 more for same job. Others have said glass has gone up by 40% over the period. I do like the firm and the men but, basically, where do I stand!

    The Great British Cover-Up: What Grant Shapps is hiding about the future of the railways Still image from Grant Shapps' 'Great British Railways Headquarters Competition' video. The colours in the image are dark, suggesting he is having a suspicious phone call on a railway platform. While everyone’s talking about the Tory leadership contest and RMT industrial action, we’re about to lose our last chance to save Britain’s railway from its most dangerous privatisation project yet. A government consultation on the new public body Great British Railways– including major changes to legislation – is about to be rushed through without any public awareness. It’s a key part of the government’s secret plan to cut billions in public spending, including a massive destaffing project allegedly involving the closure of every ticket office in England. Today, we’ve demanded that Grant Shapps extends the 4th August deadline and starts publicly promoting the consultation – in a joint letter with campaign group Bring Back British Rail. Currently, the consultation breaches several areas of the government’s code of practice; so if he refuses, the Williams-Shapps Plan will lose all credibility with the public. However, these are only the first of the weaknesses in the consultation. The private rail industry has been in backroom talks with the government for months; making vital decisions on all the most important areas affecting passengers. Most of these areas – such as timetabling, fares, and accessibility – have been exempted from the consultation (2.14) and are being negotiated as part of a market engagement process with train companies. They are now set to be decided without any public input whatsoever.

    Mother and partner jailed for neglect after her daughter, two ...https://www.dailymail.co.uk › news › article-11002775 Unbelievable that a nurse pushed away a toddler as she didn't want to get dirty by letting her near. She should have lost her job, no excuses.

    I need to write an email and know if it has been read. There was a post a little while ago about seeing when an email had been read - not sure which S/loop group it was on, can anyone remember, please - thanks.

    Help needed, please. I usually get all Scooploop notifications via email throughout the day. For the past two days have received nothing and it's necessary to go into the 'bell' notification where I can see some of the postings but they are all over the place timewise (which is normal here) and I need to go into the one post left on email in order to access the bell notifications. I have changed nothing in 'Settings' and have checked to make sure it is still 'daily'. I have posted this in Technical support (?) but it seems that takes a while and in the meantime getting nothing at all on tablet as I no longer have a Scooploop posting in emails so getting very frustrated with it all! Many thanks.

    HENS URGENTLY NEEDING HOMES We're getting worried now. Less than 2 weeks to go and we still need to find homes for 1000 hens. These little ladies have worked hard laying eggs for 18 months. We have to find every one of them a home. You can see that they are a mix of white & gingers. When you collect on rehome day that’s what you’ll get - a mix of white & gingers. Lovely well looked after girls. Please help if you can...even if its just a share of this post. The rehoming date is the 9th July and we have collection points at the following locations:- Bedford MK43 Biggin Hill BR2 Brockenhurst SO42 Brands Hatch DA4 Cowden TN8 Charlwood and Newdigate RH6 Dorset BH20 Hailsham BN27 Hastings TN35 Lancing BN15 Market Rasen LN8 North Hampshire Northampton NN2 Pencader SA39 Waterlooville PO8 Winchester SO21 To reserve your hens please go to https://chickenrescue.co.uk/reserve-your-hens

    Might be my desktop only but for the past few days have noticed that there is no indication of when comments were made on a listing, i.e. 3 minutes, etc.?

    I have long been confused by this - and it appears I am not the only one. Is it for down-voting the poster or down-voting the context of the post. It seems that people use it for various reasons and not always the same. In the past I have used it because I'm unhappy about the context (therefore agreeing with the poster if they are too) then changed vote to something different as it looked as though I was anti the poster. Would very much appreciate clarification on this. I think it can cause unpleasantness where not intended. At least with the anonymous down-vote one's feelings were clear whereas this can be very much either way. I personally feel it was a mistake getting rid of it (but keeping the anon. upvote) should be both or nothing, can't see the point otherwise.

    Still having problems getting BBC channels on my Samsung Smart TV, keep resetting and no difference. Now realise it is something I have done (hard as it is to believe) as to get access to them I have to go into the Panasonic recorder with separate remote and there they all are but it does mean I have to have recorder on all the time and press view instead of record. I think I may have inadvertently combined the two remotes and sources. If there is a simple way to resolve this I would be grateful but if not, will just carry on as at least I can get BBC channels.

    I went to get cash at ATM machine at 7.15 this morning, put card in and it disappeared. Then a notice saying This machine is out of order. Waited until 9.00 to call the bank - 20 minutes - to be told cards are shredded when that happens so would have to get onto my own bank. Another 20 minutes at my own bank to be told they'd send another which might take 5 working days. I'm not sure whether the 5day break includes any working days so it won't be this week. I was due to call into builders merchants to order some slabs but couldn't without card so decided to buy on line with my credit card, a process I started at about 4.00 this afternoon. Now everything needs verification so couldn't pay without using their 'card machine', of which I have two as it took so long for the first one to arrive they sent another. First time of using today. Attempted at least 3 times on both machines to insert card only to be told Error - Wrong Card. So then another 15 minutes to get through to M & S, who couldn't understand it but said they would send a text code only there was nowhere for me to put the number as it was set up for the card reader. Finally they decided to give me an exemption and just purchase on line but order kept coming back as unable to pay, use another form of payment which I can't as I don't have a debit card at the moment. Then transferred to the Fraud department who arranged it so that I could put the number received via text in, tried another 3 times and still came back as unable to fulfil order. They appreciated I had now been trying at least 8 times to pay. Was on to them for about 25 minutes then they said they'd ring me back, which they did. 6.15, just tried again as they have apparently set me up for the text code, still can't fulfil order and I'm giving up for today.

    Just a quickie, please Can anyone confirm that 21 sq. metres of slabs 450 x 450 equals 115 slabs? Tried looking on Google but not very bright person here - thanks.

    Just heard that these are due to be removed. I look and listen to them both most days. How do I start a petition (joking) - it's just not right yet I am paying a licence fee for the likes of Gary Lineker, Zoe Ball and many other to be overpaid. Very annoyed.
