  1. +1 and the last in line is very aptly named, instant coffee is an abomination! However it ommits my prefered brew, the Cafe Francais/ Franchesca which is espresso plus water in equal proportions, less dilute than Americano but suitable to sip at a table as opposed to drinking in one hot caffine (& sugar) laden gulp at the bar.
  2. I think it's called inflation! I'm not saying that is a good thing but it is always attractive to the indebted and given that the government is also indebted... N.B. 'Inflation' is used in the simplistic sense as per the 1970's not in the more exact economic sense as discussed in many threads passim
  3. You can often find the old style kilner jars at boot sales. Lakeland sell the rubber seal rings. Makes home made chutney look really special for little extra cost (and ask for the jar back with the promise of a refill)
  4. Similar topic in the Mail Finally the mood in the MSM is turning bearish (Express excepted )
  5. Nothing really new but good to see the a bearish article on this blog Link to article & comments
  6. Followed your procedure and the bee is back! Thank you
  7. The idea goes back to the 19th Century. These institutions were known as 'Terminating' as opposed to 'Permanent' Building Socities. I'm sure someone can find an appropriate logo..
  8. You used to be able to buy something like that to sharpen razor blades. The idea was that the pyramid energy would realign the metal atoms and regererate the cutting edge
  9. For the Land Registry April 2009 £152,898 April 2010 £165,596 +8.3% April 2011 £163,083 -1.5% Different again, but your prediction matches the LR 2009 low.
  10. Telegraph - Nationwide: house prices perk up in May But there are some sensible comments as well
  11. I've just watched the first episode (long lunch hour ) in iPlayer, it has many interesting ideas to contemplate, even if not all are justified by the evidence presented. I've not thought of the Orwell parallel for Ayn Rand before, but it's interesting. One major difference is that Orwell is supremely readable! FWIW I've often though her basic philosophy has a lot in common with Crowleys 'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law' and Nietzsche's superman/will to power.
  12. Not much longer before the NE regional average goes below £100K. IMHO when this happens people will start to wake up to the fact that prices can, do and must go down
  13. Big fleas have little fleas Upon their backs to bit 'em Little fleas have smaller fleas And so ad infinitum
  14. RightMove Here is a real life example, sale falls through and up goes the price! You need PropertyBee for the full effect, extract below in case you do not have it (you should ) 20 October 2010 * Price changed: from '£400,000' to '£425,000' [Found by n/a] * Status changed: from 'Sold STC' to 'Available' [Found by n/a] 01 November 2009 * Price changed: from '£375,000' to '£400,000' [Found by n/a] 15 May 2009 * Status changed: from 'Available' to 'Sold STC' [Found by n/a] 23 March 2009 * Initial entry found. [Found by n/a]
  15. It can be done on a minimal budget. Relatives of mine have spent the last 30 years gradually extending into the barns to which their orignal cottage was attached. Once it was 2 up 2 down, now it is a large, comfortable and not at all pretentious house.
  16. I suspect the property supplements went to press before the -3.6% announcement. The articles in the Torygraph Saturday property suplement are sometimes online by the middle of the preceeding week (edited for spelling)
  17. Click on Street view on the RightMove page, you can see the garage/shed that this was converted from, derelict and with a tin roof! Edited to add it is towards the junction with Rodney Road on the right.
  18. We sold (exchanged) yesterday at a price agreed in July and as of the end of October will be in rented. Feeling like a surfer who missed the biggest wave but caught a pretty good one!
  19. I drive past this about once a week. I've always felt rather sorry for the house and once suggested to a friend who used to work at the NatWest carbuncle he might get a reward from Prince Charles if he was to 'accidently' destroy his workplace
  20. I thought a consolidated list would be useful, I was going to edit my original post to add it but don't seem to be able to do so Sat 24/07: roses Sun 25/07: thatch Mon 26/07: pond Tue 27/07: garden Wed 28/07: lawn Thu 29/07: fuchsia Fri 30/07: pub Sat 31/07: lane Sun 01/08: hedge Mon 02/08: Bird
  21. Dream Cottage Competition Does anyone buy the Mail? If so please post the daily on-line password here then we can all enter the competition I don't actually like the cottage, it's far too twee, but at an alleged £320K value it should sell for a worthwhile amount.
