  1. Same as jasram. Not been here for a while but wanted to wish everyone happy 20th Birthday
  2. Iphones have the number blocking built in to the phone side of things but I don't know about any others. You can look at the number by going to recent calls and it gives you the options of saving to contact list etc but also gives you the option of "Block this caller" I've used it for some of these spam callers and it seems to work OK.
  3. Is this to your mobile or home phone because you can bar numbers from certain mobiles? I've done it to some of these nuisance callers
  4. Thanks to the nice people collecting their pizza I couldn't park in a disabled bay and had to park where I could actually get out of the car which was not in any bay at all as they are all too small and got a parking ticket for their effort.
  5. Sorry Jamer if this is not allowed and please feel free to delete if it is My son and 3 mates are starting a silly bike ride tomorrow (Wednesday 31st July) from Brighton to Blackpool. A total of 330 miles which they aim to do in 3 days. Totally bonkers but it is for charity namely the RNLI (Lifeboat Institution) which a very worthy cause. If anyone feels strongly enough to donate towards this cause then the Just Giving page being used for all the lads is https://www.justgiving.com/JonKirkhamPier2Pier. The amount on there is not the full amount as the lads do have donations from their workplaces yet to be added. I know my son has nearly £500 to add so far. A really worthy cause as they save so many lives each year. Yes I have already given and the guy who's name is on the page is not my son. Many thanks to those that help the sponsorship and of course thanks for taking the time to read this. Cheers Mr G
  6. Just a quick look at Companies House gave me this info There is a free phone app that will give you some info as well.
  7. As far as I know all they have to give is from when they "landed" in the UK. Anything before is not required. What is just as galling is that I have to do this every 5 years or so and I've had my airside pass for 25 years with the same company and same airport. It does wind me up.
  8. Excellent but so true. We have all sorts of checks at work because I go airside at an airport to maintain aircraft. we are allowed to carry our tools with us but still have to be searched each time. Anything they look for can be carried legally in our toolboxes except water to drink or milk for our tea. We also have to have these stupid criminal record checks done and a provable work history going back god knows how many years just to get the airside pass. Fair enough but what of the immigrant workers who clean the aircraft who have only just arrived in this country? Their checks only go back as far as the day they stepped onto British soil. :Angry_32:
  9. No problem. Glad to help. :Smiler:
  10. I've used it a couple of times looking for particular images to send to someone to make into a signature on other forums. It seems to work quite well.
  11. If you look at the search field on Google Image page there is a camera icon on the far right of the field. Click that and it gives you the option to upload an image from you computer or enter the url of one from the net. Just hit search and away you go.
  12. Belated Happy Birthday Jamer. I hope you had a good one. As for the five-0 I'm very close to the next big one after that.
  13. Mr Grumpy

    And finally

    Congratulations Macs. I hope you have a really good and long retirement. I just wish I could retire but I have 5 years til the mortgage runs out. I hit 65 at the same time so hopefully I will make that date sort of in one piece.
  14. Those are commercial vehicles and as such should be used for just that. If they were then they would have no need to use a supermarket car park and as I said earlier I long for the old days when they were banned from such car parks for the reason of being too big for the spaces. Drivers of such vehicles left them at their place of work. Now we can't get round housing estates because they have forgotten to uphold the bylaw that prohibits the parking of commercial vehicles overnight and because those drivers use them as their private transport. The walking limit now is down to 20m so the issue of anyone getting a blue badge has been addressed and this also means going to an assessment centre and not as it was by a note from your doctor. As for the not because they are closer to the store comment. Try and get a space when its raining and its not just large vehicles without blue badges
