    It's gone a little quiet on HPC

    I used to read the forum in an app call IPB but that stopped working with the upgrade. The forum software also used to remember the point I had read up to in existing threads. It doesn't do that now, so it's become really impractical to keep up with threads.
  2. Having lived in a house where both neighbours were obsessive gardening perfectionists I can honestly say I would rather live next door to the houses with overgrown grass and rusty motorbikes. I rented a old stone terrace for a few years. When at the viewing I was pleasantly surprised to find it has a nice little cellar, which gave me ideas of a workshop space etc. only once moved in did I realise that 9 months of the year the whole cellar flooded so badly it had several inches of water at the bottom end.

    What's Happening Round Your Way

    They ain't a changin in east manchester. Everything newly listed is 2007 + 20% prices. And any reductions are a lot thinner on the ground than a few months ago. I think the only places selling are old boomers exchanging between themselves. The 3 bed semi I used to rent just sold for £140k. Which is about 6-7x average wage and an astronomical price for what it was. I couldn't believe it...then when I told my dad he thought it was a bargain :S (null)
  4. Stamps are such a con IMO. There was a poor sod on storage hoarders the other week who had spent thousands investing in stamps from trusted sources as a pension of sorts only to then be told the whole lot was worth a 1/10th of what he paid for some pathetic reasons. Of course the expert would be happy to buy them off him and sell them on again to some other poor sap who would only realise he's been conned in a few decades time.

    What's Up With Property-Bee

    Still seems to be working for me but is constantly coming up with errors messages and wanting to send error reports back. Only started a couple of days ago.

    Equity Release

    My gf is a planner (private sector not council) it seems councils will demand all sorts whilst the process is in motion, but once it's built they'll forget all about it. Say 'yes sir, yes sir, three bags full sir' then after the matter just rent it to agricultural workers for whatever you like. They can hardly check your bank account to see what amount the standing order is can they.

    Britains Youth Unemployment Crisis

    Shhhhhhhhhhh!!! 1st rule of fight club... and so on
  8. 1 was a ground up restoration that's not quite ready for an mot yet. 2 others are previous commuters that you could also call 'classics' and are probably appreciating in value better than anything else I own. 4th is a parts bike that is being stripped to fix up one of the others. They'll be a lot of seasonality with bikes. sorn winter projects for example. Depends how they work out the stats, but potentially a lot of the new sorns are actually repeat sorns just because the vehicle has changed hands. The new owner then has to re-sorn it once they have the v5 even though it was already sorned. They might put this down as a new sorn because it's in a new name, or they might not. Only the dvla knows (they probably don't!) There will be a lot of vehicles that aren't even in the sorn system but also aren't taxed. Because you only have to sorn a vehicle if it has been taxed or sorned since jan 1998.
  9. Doesn't actually state "cars" it's says SORN declarations An awful lot if those will be two wheelers. For example I no longer have a car, but I do have 1 taxed motorbike and four Sorn bikes of various sizes.

    Myhermes have been great since I started using them just before the Royal Mail price hikes but they seem to have upped their game even more in the last few weeks. Previously everything I sent took 3-5days but the last four parcels I've sent have all been delivered in 48hrs. Currently doing 30p off as well.

    Auction Success

    I've seen the same. Some bargain basement prices for pubs considering the size of them. I had presumed it was something to do with the cost of rates whilst you try to get permission to convert them etc?? One local to me was bought by the car dealership next door to it for £120k just so they could knock it down to create more forecourt space.

    Moronic 'one Show'

    I wouldn't go as far to say Ray mears was 'uncomfortable' whilst they gloated and ramped, but he did manage to keep his face straight and stay out of it. I'd like to think he's intelligient enough to see the irony of it. His comment of "oh I dunno, £30 million?" kind of ruined their big reveal of the £7 million price tag I thought. ....bunch of twats.
  13. You big copy (you just described my exact situation) So far so good, I get cheap board, meals and washing done they get to drink my homebrew, a handy man on tap and my fantastic company of course They'll never admit it but they like having me around......and I like being here TBH.
  14. Is everyone reading this thread 29 and living with parents? ....I'm 29 and have just moved back in with the parents btw....

    Myhermes are doing well for me. Sent 5 big parcels with them last week, all delivered fine and signed for. Tried collect plus as well, used the cheaper service and it still arrived next day. My experience of Myhermes has gone from me being the only person to drop off a parcel that day to the scene I walked into last week at my local off license where an entire aisle was taken up with myhermes parcels!! Whilst the courier scanned them all in. I still send anything below small parcels with Royal Mail because I can use my offices franking machine. However after years and hundreds if not thousands of near faultless deliveries with Royal Mail, I've had 5 different items get severely damaged in the last few months. Disgruntled union employees taking it out on the letters maybe...
