My Mother didn't leave a will, but that was no problem as we tided up her affairs a few years ago.

However, on going through her effects we came across an two old insurance policies and an old building society account, none worth a lot of money.

Rang the Pru, they took a few details including the death certificate number, a few details from me and four days later I received two cheques.

Did the same with the building society which holds less money than the insurance and they've sent me 10 very complicated forms to fill in.

In addition they want my passport, driving licence and copies of household bills plus they are going to charge me a hefty admin. fee.

I should add, this particular building society closed all it's branches several years ago and went internet only.

Makes you wonder if our ebay admin. uses them ???

General Discussion Area / Halfords
« on: 11 November 2019, 08:37:05 »
On my recommendation my mate bought one of these from Halfords a week ago -

He'd got a £30 gift voucher and we used my trade card.

He tried charging his car with it, and after 18hrs it came up with fault code F03 (faulty charger).

We then tried it on his wifes car, after 6hrs, same thing, fault code F03.

Yesterday we took it back to Halfords, the gofor was behind the counter.

Us - We want to return this battery charger as it's faulty - came up with fault code F03.

Gofor - Did you charge it up first, it won't start your car unless it's been charged up.

Us - Er, it's a battery charger not a jump starter, it can't be charged up.

Gofor - You still have to charge them up.

Us - Is the manager about.

Manager comes ove.

Gofor - They want to return this, but they didn't charge it up first.

Us - It's a battery charger.

Manager opens box, takes out instructions and reads them from cover to cover.

Manager - No, it doesn't need to be charged up, what's a matter with it?

Us - Repeat we tried it on two cars, came up with fault code = faulty charger.

Manager - What do you want to do?

Us - Exchange it for another one.

Manager wanders off to the shelves, comes back and says none on the shelf, will look in the store.

After a while, the Gofor starts talking into his comms. device.

Gofor - What exactly was the fault again.

Us - We explain.

Gofor communicates this through his comms. device.

Gofor - What did you do to get the fault code up.

Us - We explain.

Gofo communicates this through his comms device.

Gofor - Manager says we haven't any in stock, what do you want to do?

Us - We'll have our money back.

Gofor communicates this through his comms device.

Gofor reluctantly refunds our money.

Found £100 pounds worth of American Express travellers cheques in the back of a drawer.

Seems like I can still cash them :y

Is there an alternative to operate two computers with one mouse/keyboard and monitor?

General Discussion Area / Tayna Batteries

Ordered a new battery from them yesterday, paid for standard delivery, arriving today.

Glad I didn't pay the extra for express delivery ;D

Identical Varta stop/start battery as fitted, over £100 cheaper than anywhere else, even EPC with a 45% discount.

For an extra £15 fitted by a local garage (they arrange), saves breaking my back trying to lift it out myself.

I purchased a Bose portable Bluetooth speaker a week ago from their online store - special offer £60 off.

It arrived within 5 days, set it up (software updates etc.) didn't work.

Rang Bose local service number and ended up speaking to a young lady in America who was very helpful, sent me an email with a printable returns label.

The address on the returns label was in Belgium!

It's taken 3 days to get there, but Bose Belgium have confirmed receipt, thank goodness.

Haven't Bose got any service centres in the UK?

Radiators get piping hot, towel rail only gets warm.

No air in system, or towel rail.

No blockage in towel rail.

Just gets warm, no cold areas, same heat all over.

Has anyone noticed some websites don't work properly anymore if you use IE, but work in Edge?

General Car Chat / Clay Mitt v. Clay Bar
« on: 18 July 2019, 07:03:57 »
Used a Clay Mitt on the Merc. yesterday.

Seems to produce the same result in a fraction of the time.

I've got a Flymo battery operated, but the cord keeps jamming every couple of feet.

Looking to replace it, petrol powered are too heavy for me to handle.
