Ooh, you brazenly unashamed capitalist, you!...How much?I would pay ready money to hear that.Please god no adulatory cantatas.Mayhaps some members here have already been approached with commission work but are to modest to speak of it. Selva, perhaps?
There's a guy on Facebook who advertises pianos for sale and offers them for auction online starting at 1p. Now he's hung something on a tree somewhere in the UK and whoever finds it gets a free Yamaha. It's driving me up the wall! We're desperate for a new piano but it's not really practical to start looking up trees all over the place. Apparently we're allowed to ask questions for clues but he only answers 5 a day. So far it isn't in the North-East or Liverpool. I suppose I have to prioritise now between continuing to refurbish our new home or splashing out on a lovely new piano. Decisions, decisions.
Have you tried requesting a piano on freecycle? People are often desperate to find good homes for unwanted good pianos. Unless it's actually only a new electronic piano you're after? In which case ignore what I've just written!
Thanks M-J. No I don't want an electronic piano. Will have a look at freecycle. Thanks again.
Sorry this is on-topic...
I always find your contributions stimulating. There is a big difference between your wondering out loud, as it were, and La Pearson's absurd and unsubtantiated pronouncements or the Daily Wail's hateful propaganda.Seconded.
Even Ann Widdecombe - who is absolutely convinced that Philpott was the type of person who used the benefit system as a means of getting a bigger income than he could through work - specifically rules out any suggestion that there is a connection between the welfare system and the death of those children.
I'm not prepared to talk about my mother behind her back on an internet message board.
I'm not interested in your dogs.
As you have that first-hand experience (and I am very sorry that you have had to have it), please do continue to contribute to it if you have further observations to make; I have every sympathy with anyone who even tries to "work" the benefit system - by which I specifically do not mean trying to take undue and/or unfair advantage of it but to try to ascertain due rights and entitlements within a system that seems almost designed to discourage all but the most dedicated and determined (as well as needy) applicants.Whilst not an expert like yourself, I do know first-hand about the subject because of my elderly mother.
That's an odd coincidence. I care for my mother at home, so have first hand knowledge of just how complex, adversarial and incentivised to deny benefit the system is.
I don't think I'd better continue contributing to this conversation.
