General discussion / Recycling old TVís?
« on: November 29, 2022, 03:02:16 PM »
I discovered that I had 3 old TVís in the  shed. Two are the old bulky tvís, one a flatscreen. Theyíre all switching on, but there are no remotes with them.

Seems a  shame to bring them  to the  dump. Is there anywhere/anyone who could use them, or are they able to be recycled in any way?

Not sure thereís been  a thread similar , but today I was very unfortunate to hear two songs I cannot bloody stand. I physically have to turn off the  radio/TV if I hear them.

Spice Girls -  Wannabe
Neil Diamond- Sweet Caroline

(Tbh I absolutely canít stand Neil Diamondís  voice at all. Christ but itís annoying)

Anyway, thought Iíd start  a thread.

Letís have it...........

General discussion / Switching electricity/energy providers
« on: September 03, 2022, 12:25:37 PM »
Just caught up with the late late  show there , and the discussion on energy prices and all that

Itís something I meant to look into before but  never got around to.

So, is it simple enough to switch electricity providers?  Seems daft to be paying more than I should be , especially at this moment in time..

Also, if I switch providers and get X discount for say 12 months, can I keep switching every 12 months  to keep getting the lower/discount rate?

General discussion / Southern landline phone question
« on: June 20, 2022, 09:45:41 PM »
Folks, hoping someone can help

Im ringing from the North ,  trying to reach a relative in the South all day on  their landline

It doesnít actually ring, but  a voice says ďthe number you have dialled is not answering. Please try again later ď

Iím not familiar with the Southís  phone networks. So Iím not sure if this phone is off the hook, out of service or engaged

Can anyone confirm?

General discussion / Security guard work -advice needed
« on: January 20, 2016, 08:31:54 PM »
Hoping for some advice regarding the security guard type of work. Basically, need a change of direction and toying with doing the training  with a view to finding work,

Training seems ok, 3/4 days. A few modules, exam etc.

 The question is if the security work would be suitable. Have trouble with the back,so not sure if this work would be ideal ie. standing for long periods, on the feet all the time etc.

Was thinking of more the supermarket/shopping centre sort of security, not the doorman/bouncer role.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience of the security guard job,and what it might entail and what would be expected of me. Sorta need to know what it involves before going ahead with the training.

Cheers in advance
