Bjay-do you know some body else who knows the person you are thinking of contacting?

Matty2

No, That's the trouble, OH says just ring the no I have but I am wary of doing that.

sotongeoff

You are losing me -can you just explain what the problem is?

What about directory enquiries-that will confirm who the telephone number belongs to?

If you want to find out if someone is still on this earth, a good way is to ask Mr Google. He keeps a record of everyone who leaves.

Enter the person's name, in double quotes, followed by the word obituary, or death. If it's a very common name, "John Smith", then you might also need a town.

On an entirely different and lighter note thought you may enjoy this. I used to have a cat that chased the water from the kitchen tap much like one of these

Think I've may have sorted problem but no answer yet.

Oh Lordy. Just walked to the shop and Jess said out loud, while we were being served, that the lad serving us looked like Mr Bean!! Everyone in the queue laughed, and the poor lad looked mortified! Quick exit out the shop!!

So that is another place you can't go back to

Hi Liz

Gary Hobson

But did the guy actually look like Mr Bean.

If so, then Jess showed everyone in the shop that she's good at identifying faces and matching them with names. Well done. Pat on the back. Deserves a sweetie and extra comic.

Next time, just say loudly to the other people in the shop: "Rowan Atkinson is my favourite actor, I'm always watching his films."

Just nipped out to top up bird feeders and pull some leeks. Oh golly gosh it was cold!!!

Didn't watch Carol Klien will watch another time when it's too cold/dull/wet to do anything else.

Miss Becks

Actually, he did. Just a younger version. And he did comment it could have been worse.

I have just had a gorilla looking at my house

Gary Hobson

It shouldn't matter at all who buys your house, provided they buy.

Be rational. This is not a time for getting emotionally attached to your old house.

Was he in fancy dress then?

Looking on it as investment-want to do massive alterations to turn it into two flats-and mentioned buying next door as well

In and out in 5 minutes

Sounds businesslike to me. A man with a plan. No messing around.

Be interesting to know if many other houses in the area have been turned into flats recently.

 Oh Geoff. The thing is when you hand over your house, and especially your garden, you want to believe that someone is going to look after it not dump builders' rubbish all over it.

I may need chicken foster-parents Flo

Chances are it is all bluster-we shall see-the details have not been prepared yet so it is early days

Don't grab first offer. Aim for a couple, buy to let, not a demolish. Someone came round ours like that andi got very upset. Didn't offer enough though.

We are not in a mad hurry and I know the lowest we will go-and I know it is all a game
