  1. Did you forget to upload your photo Algy x
  2. And I just checked when we are both entitled to our free bus passes. Age 67 for that too. I might move to Wales or Scotland as you still get them when you are 60 there!
  3. I agree with you Milky it's wrong. Infact now retirement age has gone even higher I think everyone currently over 55 should get compensation. I've just checked my state pension retirement age on hmrcs website and I won't get mine until I'm 67...the same age as Mr Dizzy.... and it says changes are in the pipeline and both might go up. Gawd I wish I'd not looked now
  4. I'm registered with the free TPS service (well I presume I still am as I did it years ago). To be honest I don't get may sales/questionnaire calls and I've only had one type of scam call and that was 'from' Hmrc sayng a warrant had been put out for my arrest ha ha. My dad's also registered on the free TPS service but he gets loads of scam and sales/questionaire type calls. My land-line is with virgin media, dad's is with BT so I wonder if that makes a difference somehow.

    And apparently the Fiat garage had some done too according to my source.

    Here's just a few of the cars that all had their windows smashed. The repair bill for them all will cost a fortune. Hope the idiots are caught and made to pay every penny and more besides, plus lock the idiots up.
  7. No, Gary is on about the forum upgrades we have to do every now and again Algy. Just behind the scenes stuff really and at user level doesn't make any difference. PS I'm still running Windows 7 My other half's laptop is Windows 8 and I've hated it from day one so I'm staying as I am as long as I can ha ha

    Car Insurance

    Ours in nowhere near £855 a year (in Warrington). I suppose when they take an average price per place that includes all the premiums paid by younger drivers. Maybe Warrington just has more younger drivers that Exeter etc.

    I love seeing all your old photos too Algy, even those I have seen before. I will never get tired of seeing them 😀 It is a shame that many of your uploads on older topics have gone and been replaced with a photo bucket icon pic but on the plus side it will give you something to do during the cold and dark winter nights. I've not used my photo bucket account for probably over a year now. It used to e a great hosting platform but then kept bombarding me with adverts and other spam blah blah and I got sick to death of it. Looking forward to seeing more pics from you 😀
  10. Great photo Algy. The town centre always looks much busier with people on older photos. Always reminds me of my teenage years going into town every Saturday daytime with friends even if I had no money.
  11. And in the case of the South Warrington MP ...I watched an elderly lady walking back and too today (or was it yesterday) past our house quite a few times looking at door numbers and somewhat confused. She had a small pile of white envelopes in her hand. I'm guessing shes the one who hand delivered an personally addressed letter to our son through our letterbox which I found later on. Very nice of him and her but hang on WHERE are mine and Mr Dizzy's. We didn't get one and we actually live here ....our son doesn't live here any more and even their electoral register 'please check' form delivered months ago didn't have his name at our address anymore. I guess they must be just targeting the younger generation ?? Gawd if they can't even keep up with who's living where for voting and targeting purposes when it's on their own councils system there really is no hope for them doing anything
  12. Yep that just about sums it up nicely.
  13. The Warrington Transporter Bridge website has a 'Visit The Bridge' page telling you how to get to it from both routes Here's the link.... http://www.warringtontransporterbridge.co.uk/visit_the_bridge.html
  14. Yes you can get to it by down Slutchers Lane past RSPCA and further up to where the car park for Warrington Animal Welfare is. I've never been as it's not the sort of place I'd like to wander on my own as the one time I did try there was a chap living in a tent in the long grass and also the pathway through to the river and along to the bridge sometimes has nasty Giant Hogweed growing along it. I think the council usually put warning signs up though if it's there. (he hogweed I mean not the chap) I'm sure PJ posted a map on here showing the exact route to it through Crossfields site though.
