Re: Little bump in my van

Absolutely Bibs. My rule was if my insured was contacted by the other party, they were to refuse to discuss it with them and to tell them to contact their insurer.

I'm a retired claims handler. Send the photos of her bumper to your insurer to prove there was no damage. Every little helps.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Implants are so expensive in the UK. 4 years ago I had 3 implants and a crown while I was in Turkey at a total cost of about 1250. Two visits were needed at least 3 months apart. Lots of people who...

Re: we've come out on top...

Bibs is right. I lived for 2 years among schemies in Sighthill in Edinburgh and saw it all first hand. Families who have never worked for several generations and with no intention of ever working.

Re: we've come out on top...

I visited Grimsby in around 1966 and immediately dubbed it Grimtown. If it's gone down hill since then, it must be really grim.

As for the argument the junk food is cheaper than healthy food, I...

Re: PSA number and bicycle riding

In my case, I was told that up to 5 was normal and as soon as it rises above that it needs monitoring more frequently. After extra monitoring, I was sent for tests because my PSA was 7.5. It turned...

Re: Motorcycling in Southern California

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?
