    Re: Putting the heating on for the autumn

    [QUOTE=amethyst;257646]

    I don't know but what I believe happens is the fact that the thermostat stops working during the summer due to it not being switched on, so when I do need to be on in the...

    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    What you save in one department, you spend in another - I believe that I am spending more on online groceries because of not going out.

    Re: Stories without words

    In the early 1990s I saw the title mentioned on the satellite listings in the TV listings guides and wondered what it was as we didn't have satellite TV back then - I thought it was something for...

    Likewise, I could never have predicted at least 43,579 people in the UK could have died from something that wasn't even in this country this time last year.

    Re: what tv show have you been watching.

    There was a bit of snooker on one of the minor channels in which John Higgins was playing - I believe that the final is tomorrow (Sunday).

    Very true - I believe that hotels have had fewer bookings this year than in previous years. I booked a Premier Inn room earlier on this year, but had to cancel it because the events in the area I was...

    Good points about unemployment - when it comes to December, there are usually more jobs available, either in shops or places such as the Royal Mail sorting office, sorting cards and parcels. I have a...

    Re: Christmas food

    I always recommend sherry as a Christmas drink - that's as long as you can open the bottle as I had difficulty doing so when I tried open a bottle of Croft Original last year. Had to toast the Queen...

    Re: Diana BBC interview

    That was in February 1981 - too young to remember it myself, but there was the start of a Southern region News at 5.45 on YouTube one the day that they had announced Charles and Diana's engagement.

    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    Thanks, Darren. You know, losing my parents back in the late 1990s was something that I couldn't imagine happening to me, and at the time I felt that it would be like having a leg amputated if you...

    Re: Diana BBC interview

    I would rather watch Diana in her 1981 Royal Wedding interview rather than the 1995 one that she did - more innocent times.

    Harris Carpets
