Or was it just a good drop of the old ale. Slightley off topic but I remember many, many years ago, one new years day seeing men dressed in black clokes and pointed black hats with daggers in thier hand. even when I closed my eyes they were still there and they kept comming at me. I was glad when I woke up the next morning and they had gone.

No, but HMRC got me when I retiered, still can not work out how they arrived at the sum they did.

interesting that - the custodians of our fiscal probity sent me a letter a Cpl of years ago asking for - nay, demanding several thousand pounds... this was relating to a very short term contract I did abroad (12 weeks) where our gov ( gawd bless em) and the other gov concerned agreed that any tax would be paid by the contracting gov. (this was as a result of the much vaunted new system which could go back up to 10 yrs  - wow - even at my age I can recall more than that) I rang those so empowered to make these demands and asked - what ??? -- they clicked buttons and said -er - oh - er oh yes - er oh- thast a bit unusual  -- er just ignore anything we sent you...

In the meantime I am having endless fun with the DWP regarding my mother  - they have sent me 3 demands for money  - £73 - £2350 - and £1750 all within a few weeks - considering she is 87 - had a heart op and then a stroke and has been in a residential home since May 2014 I am somewhat bemused as her only source of income is her state pension (ENTITLEMENT)  They have sent a deluge of letters but noe actually say anything -- they have a return address in Belfast - a contact number in Wolverhampton who actually can not access the files and are as much use as - chocolate fireguard/ashtray on motorbike -- fill in the gaps and yet her claim is dealt with by Seaham office -- I could drive there quicker than get an answer on the 'hotline' I suppose that at may age I should relish a challenge but I want a challenge not playing splat the rat in ineffectual gov departments

Anyways I think that since we have digressed we should get back on track -- snow was the start of the thread but that's transient - drink is transient (although the bad head seems to last forever ) so maybe we should go along with bizarre drink induced events brought on by the festive season.

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
