  1. I'm not sure what you mean with your last sentence, though it does remind me of something else that is falling in price. 18 months ago we got three quotes for a fitted bathroom. We decided not to have the work done at the time. 2 months ago we got two quotes for the same bathroom. The most expensive one was 10% cheaper than the cheapest from last time. One company quoted us 15% less than they did last time. Purely anecdotal, I know, but it fits my definition of cheaper, which is "the price of sh*t is coming down."
  2. Thanks for the suggestions guys! This is correct.....it's nothing to do with the LL.
  3. Hi. We're renting and have received a Water services Bill for the year 1 April 2009 to 31 March 2010. The trouble is that we move out at the end of June. I don't want to pay the bill and try and claim it back from the landlord, so what do I do? Can I pay one third of the bill?
  4. We moved into a flat in W9 in September which had been vacated by a couple working in the USA. As a bonus we found we had SkyTV, which wasn't mentioned in the contract. Now the landlord (nice chap) has aked if we want to renew the contract at our expense, which we have declined to do. He now says that if we don't we won't be able to get the terrestial channels, as there is no reception in the area. Is this correct? It doesn't sound right to me. Maybe his TV won't pick up terrestial, but I'm sure a portable would.
  5. FP.....I've been married for 15 years and my wife thinks I should have a vasectomy. What do you think? I'm 42 next month.
  6. She's recently given birth. My wife saw her and her sprog in Chelsea on Friday. Unfortunately, there were no rotten tomatoes to hand.
  7. I think he does a great PR job for this site, but I agree that he is setting himself up for deserved criticism with these sort of predictions. A Financial Planner saying "Buy Gold" is about as useful as a Doctor saying "Take Aspirin".
  8. You mean like last year....and the year before....and the year before that? It's not called the hurricane season for nothing. The Gulf of Mexico gets around four to six hurricanes every year. Last year's biggie was hurricane Dean, a category 5 hurricane. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6956874.stm
  9. That's normal. I was in Florida in 2004 when hurricane Charlie hit. We weren't allowed into Clearwater as it was predicted it would come ashore there. There was a mandatory evacuation order then. In the end Charlie missed Clearwater. We were talking to people who didn't think they would have a business or home to go back to.
  10. This happens every year in the Gulf of Mexico. There's no reason to assume it will be any worse than any other year.
  11. From your own link Why should I believe the ramblings of a 15th century pikey woman, when her "predictions" have been shown to be fabricated, and her champion is a Mr Dick Head?
  12. It just goes to show that throughout history there has always been some attention seeking bugger mouthing off about how we're all going to die! Mother Shipton? She predicted that the world would end in 1881! So?
  13. You're missing the point. Even though the FTSE is crashing, it has gone up 2% due to hyperinflationary pressures. Buy gold.
