  1. Rachel There are a host of nice villages around there - its just north east of Leeds and south east of Harrogate - the main place is Wetherby (market town) but to be honest you could be anywhere up to 20 miles away and still have a 30 min or less commute - further North (up the A1M) is cheaper and within 20 minutes the prices fall away significantly - also going South East (towards Selby) prices fall away sharply - but if you want to live in the nice places its very expensive since all the firms moved up here If you have lots of money then Clifford is nice, try Collingham or Harwood, to the north is Spofforth. Enjoy SB
  2. well in 22 minutes you'll be on schedule and I'll gladly hand over the baton to you! looks like the world didn;t fall apart on my shift so its over to you SB
  3. No I want everyone to know you're premature so I'm going to keep it at the top! SB
  4. Despite popular belief Ilkley is in the UK and in the 21st Century in case you were wondering Regards SB
  5. You're too early - its Black Friday Night and I bagged that - come back at 00:01 and stake your claim! SB
  6. Peahead You're spot on - its spin at its worst - trouble is most peaople don't look for the real meaning in the words - but they will come to understand it in time I'm sure of that, Good post SB
  7. Tbats Can I quote you as the chief financial officer of Neither Stearns? Regards SB
  8. The Daily Telegraph - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml...03/nhome103.xml Oh and the news at 10:30 on ITV - 77 homes per day - "a storm warning for our economy" - "50% increase in interest rates - some people just lock up and leave" - compared with 1991 - critics say we should have sen it coming - stupid woman from CML says its not their fault . . Oh what a night, early August, back in 07 What a special night for me, Early August what a night refrain . . . . Sleep tight , SB
  9. Oh and the fun goes on; And thats in the Times http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/busi...icle2193364.ece And theres more! Its black friday night indeed! SB
  10. All this and more at http://www.ft.com/cms/s/560c776a-41e7-11dc...00779fd2ac.html And if thats not enough Its all happening tonight http://www.ft.com/cms/s/b12425f0-41f4-11dc...00779fd2ac.html ENJOY SB
  11. In today's FT at http://www.ft.com/cms/s/82c1eddc-4122-11dc...00779fd2ac.html Well if the banks are resorting to "hope" then its bound to be OK then, presumably Ben has his fingers crossed and Merv has a rabbit's foot so the world is safe - go about your day in peace - nothing to see here. SB
  12. Have a look at LS11 9BG up to £400K - its flats in Bridgewater Place the latest development and the buidlers are pleased to offer you 10% cashback before they even finish - my bet is that will be 50% inside 12 months. Enjoy SB
  13. Thats my experience when looking though houseprices.co.uk - the houses here have gone through the roof in about 5 years BUT to my mind the fundamentals here REALLY REALLY don't support the prices. A friend of mine paid 60K for his place in 2000 - its now £300K - oh and its a 3 bed semi. To my mind thats an average house - the average salary here is 26K so thats 12 times income. Thanks for the info SB
  14. Balanced article in the WSJ re technical analysis and the top - is it a Cat 2 storm or Cat 5 Hurricane? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1185753240...e_whats_news_us SB
  15. We'll in response to the resounding silence I'll kick things off - from today's Telegraph Not sure £25K is slashing but its a start SB
  16. Well down 1.54% (208.1) on the day and over 5% on the week - not a bad week for bears! Here's to Monday! SB
  17. Its a 60 degree down dive - I expect they are looking forward to the final bell - but is bodes well for a Black Monday SB
  18. I've searched for press releases / market info but nothing - why the sudden downturn - it can;t be just sentiment or is it? SB
  19. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is the really important bit of news today http://www.ft.com/cms/s/cc25609c-3c10-11dc...00779fd2ac.html This is the first time the credit crunch is changing the commercial environment and I think thats important - DJIA will drop away on opening as fears for the crdit crunch increase - it could still be a black friday - shoot away SB
  20. Anyone want $300Bn of debt - form a queue now, there's plenty for everyone Sleep tight and await the morning SB
  21. If you want to see whats causing the credit wobble there is a great page in the WSJ at http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/doc...l0707-sort.html Its a growing list of tremors - question is will the list continue growing? Odds on I'd say SB
  22. Try this flat in Leeds then - it was £415K in Aug 06 and now its . . . . . . . . . . . http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-161...=1&tr_t=buy thats right £750K or 80% in 12 months . . . . . nice work if you can get it SB
  23. DJIA down 2.14% - to see if we'll get a black friday we need to see what happens in the next 3 hours - if the line keeps going down at 45 degress then you may get your wish but if it levels its just another adjustment . . . . . . See you here at 8:45 to see what tomorrow holds SB
  24. Its the FT article at http://www.ft.com/cms/s/e2ab1b62-3a13-11dc...00779fd2ac.html Hope that helps SB PS Named after your bike?
  25. For all those who laugh at RB for sensationalising the situation here is what the CEO of Contrywide says about the situation in the US You couldn't make this up . . . . SB
