Re: TV

The problem is, there is so much content to be filled.

There are now in the same vein, countless "celebs".

Most of the people in the reality programmes ( only read whom is on in the papers ), I would not know if the stood next to me at a checkout counter.

Re: Bitcoin

Interesting snippet about "mining" of bitcoins in the paper over the weekend. There are now over 16 million of the 21million ( allowed ! ) in existence. A lot of the new ones are produced in mega Chinese warehouses set up especially. It seems it takes about $14,000 in electricity costs to ...

Re: Bitcoin

As Bitcoins are now "approaching $10,000 a piece" as per today's business news, surely one coin would be a large wallet !

As an aside, there is a rumour that Amazon is considering accepting Bitcoin as payment.

Re: On this Day

I like the story about the rich American who spent half a million dollars investigating his family tree...

And then a million dollars trying to hush it up !

There may be a connection...

Re: changing pounds to euros?

Passing through Waterloo yesterday on my way to watch the "Gooners", picked up some Euros at 1.08 at "ICE"...

Hopefully that is the lowest price I will pay for "cash" for ever again !

Re: changing pounds to euros?

Anyone wishing changing euros to pounds, I would suggest getting in quick.

In my humble opinion, it cant get any "better" than this. The bottom surely has been reached !

Re: Squatters

The law really is an ass...

If they went to the local supermarket and stole food, they would be possibly arrested.

Yet they can steal electricity et all, and the legal owner of the property has to go to all that trouble to get his place back.

Re: Squatters

Do not know the person, personally whose house has been "squatted", but there are a number of "holiday homes" in the locality.

It is a question of "there but for the grace of God "

Squatters

I have just heard about squatters taking over a "holiday Home" in the locality.

It seems the police have been informed, but have not shown any great interest.

I suppose as a first step, the owners could have the utilities disconnected !

I wonder what the legal position is ?
