  1. Past hour
  2. At least we can do that more easily with photoshop especially if you have shot in RAW which I always do...... I've never been to the Costa Del Sol ... it does look beautiful though .
  3. Today
  4. Ladies & Gentlemen - For this week only. I give you..... summat beginning with the letter P PEGZ
  5. Thanks Geoff. Exposed for the sky because it was too good to lose but had to lift the shadows as a result.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Excellent shot John, that sky looks like it's been painted.
  8. BT also have a service called Call Protect
  9. Nerja Polly. The Vodka Tonic in front of me helped with the composition.
  10. What a stunning scene John ... where is it ? The light is really quite amazing and the compositional skill does much to enhance the resulting image...
  11. It's at this time of year that a little personal global warming wouldn't go amiss.
  12. Doesn't this do the same thing? We registered a couple of years ago and it's worked a treat. It's free, btw. Telephone Preference Service Korky
  13. Sadly, this thread tends to get neglected and that's a pity. However, here's my contribution for 2019. Korky
  14. That's very good, so cleverly done. Fred and Ginger were a bit good eh? Korky
  15. I'm pretty sure it's a tiny spider, there are four legs visible on the right and also the shape is typical of a spider.
  16. FUJI


    Thank you for your observations ..... I suspect it might be a tiny Springtail.......or....an equally tiny spider..... can’t count all of its legs. I did discover the other species of Springtail, underneath a dead leaf yesterday, they are among the few insects/bugs that remain active under leaf litter all winter. They are fascinating little creatures.....please GOOGLE them, you won’t be disappointed. FUJI
  17. Hi Geoff, In my 80 s now I get far too many of these calls, some very convincing. My Best Buy to deal with it to date, is the purchase of a set of BT CORDLESS PHONES All having a large central button with a cross on. You listen, to establish caller and message, if there is any doubt, push the button and the call is ended and that number blocked from calling again. you do, of course need to ensure that a genuine caller isn’t blocked.... But no bank or other finance company will phone you.....I ask anyone I’m not sure about, to confirm by letter.....not giving my details..... I have reduced dodgy calls using these phones. FUJI
  18. This is a clever take on dancing to a modern hit record with old movie dancing clips Fred and Ginger don't look a bit out of place...! https://www.google.com/search?q=old+movie+stars+dance+uptown+funk&oq=old+movie+stars+uptown+funk&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j0l5.16026j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  19. Last week
  20. Yeah I just read the stuff about call centres Gareth ... Definitely needs looking into though ...
  21. It looks to me as if the "service" is to reduce unsolicited phone calls by getting call centres to remove your details from their records. I agree that you need to contact the bank to ensure no money has been taken.
  22. Can you not ring the Bank before to check ...? Obviously they will need to speak to her but if you tell them why you cannot get to her to take her till Friday and ask them to please check if money has been taken out even if they cannot tell you ... this of course presumes you know her account number ... worth a try as I would be a bit worried about it .....in case any more is being taken .....
  23. My Mum is normally pretty good when it comes to the phone, if they start waffling and she doesn't understand what they what she just puts the phone down and she wouldn't normally give out card details over the phone. Exactly my point, it's also not like she'd know what they are..... Unfortunately having no car is making it difficult, otherwise I would have gone up and taken Mum to the bank to make sure no payments had been taken out, my sister will take her to the bank of Friday to make sure.
  24. If she has spoken to someone on the phone and has inadvertently authorised them to take money I would get in touch with the bank to ensure that hasnt happened ... IT CERTAINLY SOUNDS SUSPICIOUS .. I'd investigate immediately ...Why on earth would she need help regarding General Data Protection Regulations .... Can anyone ring her direct or must they go through a switchboard receptionist ? It could be someone targeting vulnerable elderly people ...
  25. It’s called Romanesque, so not Australian, Dennis. They are better to eat than ordinary broccoli, in my opinion; sweeter and more tender. Not difficult to grow.
  26. My Mum received 2 letters from this company (basically consent forms) and both saying that a payment of £150 had been taken and that the consent form needed to be signed in order for them to act on her behalf.... It all seems a bit of a scam to me, my Mum lives in sheltered accommodation so callers need to buzz to gain entry to the building and she would not know what GDPR legislation was if someone called by phone. My sister who read the letters said they read like gobblydegook, their website is also unclear to exactly what services they offer https://www.deviceprotect.co.uk/ A quick look at Companies House website shows the company was incorporated in 2018-06-13 In 13 Feb 2019 Registered office address changed from Box 12 Barlavington Petworth GU28 0LG United Kingdom to 14-16 Churchill Way Cardiff CF10 2DX on 13 February 2019 14 Feb 2019 Appointment of Mr Craig Thomas Mcginlay as a director on 1 February 2019 28 Feb 2019 Termination of appointment of Ben Swanson as a director on 28 February 2019 28 Feb 2019 Termination of appointment of Luke Swanson as a director on 28 February 2019 16 Sep 2019 Termination of appointment of Craig Thomas Mcginlay as a director on 16 September 2019 16 Sep 2019 Appointment of Mr Damien Colin Enticott as a director on 16 September 2019 It all seems a bit fishy to me, 4 different directors in 14 months..... Has anyone had letters or dealings with this company?
  27. Several sightings at Great Amwell and Rye Meads, but like the Otters we are supposed to have locally..I have never seen one!
