Snow watch 2008

Lots of snow in London this morning.
My parents near the Lakes are enjoying sunshine and no snow at all.

How about everyone else?

I don't know the answer I'm afraid, but I would hope that it would be possible for those who are unable to drive on medical grounds to be able to claim some form of assistance.

I was looking out for the April Fool's joke on BBC News but didn't find one. I think normally newspapers like to insert one somewhere.

I seem to recall a NZ member who liked trains but I'm not sure if he's still active.

Although I suspect few if any members on this forum were around in the era of steam, I still think they're wonderfully evocative. If in doubt watch Brief Encounter and you'll be converted.

I'm very much the same as Pooky. You improve out of necessity. I have to speak to clients and suppliers on a daily basis and although I can make no claims to be a maestro of slick conversation I can certainly come across as professional and knowing my stuff well enough. It's amazing what you can ach...

In case you thought I'd died...

Evening all! After many months in the offline wilderness I've finally managed to get some form on connectivity in my flat and with a bit of luck should be online regularly from here on in. It's good to see so many members new and old using the forum. Hope you've all been keeping well! Dan Dyspraxic ...

I've been making the most of life in London and have been very busy in the past couple of months; I've hardly been at home any evenings at all, hence my general absence from the forum, although I do keep an eye on things regularly.

Congrats on your graduation gomababe, I'm glad to hear you made it through. I don't have any specific recommendations on the situation with you Mum; it's one of those things that often requires a solution specific to your own situation, however it sounds as if she needs to let you go, and it's somew...

Chat rooms eh? Seems very 1997 to me. Haven't been in an internet chat room in years. Forums and the like can be a bit different, but all over there's a lot of dross with only some gems here and there. I don't worry too much about the net. I use it for most things and am even looking at finding peop...

There's a lot of the 'grass is always greener' syndrome with looking at living abroad. Having lived abroad and spent a lot of time overseas travelling myself, I can understand there are certainly some attractions with what's abroad but don't fool yourself into thinking that other countries are witho...

Thanks to my new job I can now satisfy all your private jet needs, although to be fair they do cost a number of multiples more than flying commercially. I share Shadwell's experiences on aeroplane seat pitch, although I've found some better than others. The worst mode of transport though can be buse...
