Re: Uk Bank Accounts

Thanks Spanish Lad.
I'm pretty sure it includes Current Accounts.
I recently received a circular from my Pension company suggesting alternative ways of having my pension paid if my bank closes the account.

Uk Bank Accounts

There is much speculation about some UK banks closing current accounts after Brexit ( due to costs involved, apparently)
Does anyone have any idea which UK banks are likely to do this?

Re: Youtube Thumbnails

Additional info to my original posting:
If I sign-out of Youtube, I get my thumbnails back, but, of course, I lose my "library" playlists.
So problem not yet solved.

Youtube Thumbnails

Usually, when I play a video on Youtube, a stack of suggested video thumbnails appear on the right ( usually the same TV series or the same Artist, for example). I find this very useful. Today, however, I am seeing NO thumbnails at all, just the open video on the left,and blank on the right. :think:...

Re: Victoria Marengo Beer

Cheers Wicksey. I've seen a few good beers around, but I have to say ; apart from "Alhambra-1925" I haven't tasted a particularly good Spanish beer.They are all Lager-types. This "Victoria -Negra" is the tastiest I've had. It's a bit like a British "Stout" :D May check-...
