    Have they tried to correct that H? It looks very weak.

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    I despise all of them. Self-serving expense-fiddling lying b******s, the lot. “The desire to be a politician should bar you for life from ever becoming one.” ~ Billy Connolly.

    This. How fast was that? Of course now I would like a step by step breakdown of the process. I would have ruined it.

    2020 penny

    I've spent so little cash in the shops this / last year I can barely remember the last time I got change of any description.

    Rare coin lost in post

    I'd take him to small claims court. You sold him a coin, and refunded him. He now has a coin which he has not paid for. What goes on between Richard and the RM is none of the buyer's business, is it? I'd send a letter before action telling him that if he doesn't either make payment or return the coin you'll proceed against him. I doubt you'd need to go much further.

    Agree same coin Mike.
  14. I'm not convinced. It's a pretty poor survival strategy, to bury random nut-sized objects for the lean times: Squirrel: "I'm starving, think I'll pop and get those things I buried last autumn." "Bollocks, another sestertius. Could have sworn it was a hazelnut." I think a squirrel would know the difference between a piece of metal and food.
