    Selling Shares

    I have small share holdings in about 9 different companies. On checking their value recently, I was rather shocked as to their low value. This is despite always re-investing any dividends. I have decided to sell them. I am wondering what is the best, cheapest way of selling them. Any advice...

    Am I odd or have I seen the light?

    Fot those of you who spend hours waxing and polishing their cars , now is the time to look away. You see, I used to be one of those who did exactly that. I spent a fortune on the latest products believing all the sales blurb. In more recent years, I have merely washed the car using a decent...

    A close shave

    Not so long ago, I had just come out of a 30mpg limit, when I was stopped by a policeman. He said ' Sir, do you realise yo were doing 37 mph in a 30 mph limit? What have you got to say? I replied ' It was gross inattention on my part and what's worse, I am not even in a hurry'. The policeman...

    Tight ****d or what.

    BT/Openreach

    I am sure like me you have had to complain about bad service from BT and Openreach. Anyhow on Monday morning I phoned BT to report a leaning telephone pole and wires almost touching the ground. 1.5 hours later an engineer called with me and assessed the situation. He said he was unable to fix...

    BTinternet.com

    Thanks Headhurts for replying. When I go to BT mail, a box entitled Cookies on BT.com .The choice is Edit and OK. You cannot proceed until you click Ok. Trying to Edit doesn't do anything. I am logging on via a browser. I am getting resigned to just having to put up with it.

    BTinternet.com

    Does anyone here use btinternet.com for emailing? When I go to open my mail on it, up pops a message about cookies. Each time you have to click on it to get to your email. Is there any way of getting rid of this? I find it quite annoying.

    Used car expectations

    When talking buying secondhand, I remember many years ago buying a VW Polo. I went to a local dealer (a one owner outfit) He had 5 2nd hand Polos for sale. He handed me the keys of all 5 and said take them for a test drive. I did this and found that an ex driving school one was the nicest...
