Drove the length and breadth of France for years when the kids were young. In those days fly drive wasnít an option and air conditioning was only available in swanky cars. Great times. I,of course, moved to fly drive later but I always thought it removed the sense of adventure

Spent a night in Carnlough a couple of weeks ago. Very nice spot.

Cornwall seems class. It's on my to do list when I retire in a couple of years. Touring Croatia and Bosnia this summer. Does anyone here know the story as regards taking a rental car from Croatia into Bosnia and back out again?

Saw the Kings of the Kilburn High Road a couple of weeks ago. Local dramatic group put it on. Very moving show.

Itís not enough to simply put down the name of a town. I think some brief background to justify the nomination should also be provided

Absolutely. Not my cup of tea either but he had a huge following. He took part in a charity gig in our Club a few years ago. When he came off the stage he was asked if heíd like a cup of tea or coffee or anything. Ď A wee Powers would be great if you had oneí was his reply

Kilkeel should have a thread of its own. The place is oozing with potential. The gateway to the Mournes. You go this morning to a similar place in the Lake District and itíll be buzzing with walking groups and other tourists heading for the hills. Kilkeel deserves everything it gets

Indeed. People have asked all sorts of questions like this looking advice on anything from paying rates on a new house to buying a lawnmower. Thereís always a few people who will have some useful advice to give and thatís one of the good things about the board and its community

very odd 1st post for a gaaboard
as foir you question, sorry no idea
In fairness this post must be one of the most useless and unhelpful posts ever posted here and that's saying something given the competition there is.
Marty, Nailer's comments are bang on the mark. Good luck with the house purchase if you go ahead with it.

The reduction is only on the extension as I think understand. So in the case I mentioned it would be like this. John and Jim live in similar houses with rates of £1200. They both build similar extensions. Johns rates increase by £400 to £1600. Jimís extension is for a disabled person. His rates go up £300 to £1500

That's slightly misleading. My understanding is if you build an extension your rates will increase. If it's a disabled extension they reduce the increase by 25%

The 25% decrease is on the total your rates bill. I have known this to work for a number of clients
So what youíre saying is if your rates are £1200 a year and you build an extension for a disabled person your rates reduce to £900

It certainly stinks alright.
How soon before Israel "defends itself" by seizing a wipe of Syrian territory?
Another wipe. It already has taken the Golan Heights

This Syria situation seems to becoming more grave by the day. I find it hard to understand why, when the war is almost over, Assad would do this. Is it beyond the bounds of possibility that the Israelis might have done it given that they seem to have most to gain from mayhem within their Arab neighbours
