General Discussion Area / Re: Your Next Holiday Abroad
« on: Today at 07:31:07 »
So far I've had two holdays cancelled this year (still waiting on refunds, thanks easyJet  ::) )

I've got flights booked for Oct 28th to Fuerteventura, as I hope by then the 'new normal' will be well-seasoned.

Just wondering if anyone has any future plans for a Holiday abroad?  When and where do you plan to go?  Are you worried bout it?  Do you think you will actually travel?

Just received refund of a flight cost from EJ after 6 weeks. They are - currently - refusing to refund part of the car hire cost, claiming I should have cancelled the car hire via ‘manage my booking’ despite telling me, in the cancellation email, to do so ‘directly with the service provider’, which I did.
Hmmm, we shall see, barrister daughter is on the case. Any bets?

I invariably put UK in the search term as well. Doesn’t seem to make much difference.

Is the Austin basically the pointy nose A40 van with windows and a fold down back seat, and van type rear doors?

And if you take a Car and trailer test in an auto, you can only tow using an auto, even if you hold a manual licence.

For the bigger stuff, you can take the test in either manual or auto bearing in mind that manual trucks and buses are rare, if you only hold an auto you can only drive an auto truck/bus but if you have a manual car licence, you can drive either regardless of what you passed your C/D test in.

I never knew you had to take a test to tow a trailer.  :-[

I use google.UK, my location is UK, tried this: , and tried exclude minus sign. It still often returns US sites.
I asked here about using a VPN  but was advised against it by TB, I think. :-\

Is there another decent search engine than Google? No matter what I do it insists on offering US sites or items priced in $. I have tried the fixes suggested and using the - exclude option with no luck.

Under duress, I recently upgraded to Win 10, and, unlike Win 7, it will not accept my HP 1510 printer as default. I have spent untold hours chasing down suggestions from Google to no avail. Can any of the IT experts here tell me how to fix this infuriating fault. >:( >:( >:(

The Beeb has seen itself as a revisionist left wing opinion former rather than an independent news reporter for many years. Take the saintly Laura (please do), her ‘to camera’ spots are invariably subjective conjecture about what ‘may’ happen if this or that occurs rather than objective comment on what has already occurred. >:(

Frightened the fish frogs and newts by climbing into the pond which is deep enough to almost reach my dangly bits, to find the bits of filter fountain that fell off. Not too cold either.  8)

Well I can only speak for myself, but my HP 1512 printer, now a few years old, was dirt cheap, does everything I need, and I repeat my above quote.  :y

I bought my HP1512 in part as an Ad claimed its print options included A5 which it didn’t. HP customer service were excellent and provided a software download to fix it.  :y

Walked the dog, again. ::)
