    Old friend pops up on FB.

    My very first tenant (a lodger) was a lovely young Muslim lady who found a room in my town, but the room didn't have a lock on the door and the other people in the house were all men. She contacted me and explained the situation and how desperate she was to leave. I told her to pack up all her stuff and I'd collect her and she could stay at my house for free for a few days until she sorted things out. So she did. She became my lodger and stayed for about two years. We remained friends for several years after but lost touch.

    I've looked for online for a couple of years but with no luck. There are several ladies with her name on FB but none were her, then this morning she popped up as a friend suggestion on facebook.

    What a nice surprise!

    But how did this happen? We have no friends in common.

    If FB remembers who you've looked for why didn't she appear earlier?

    Is it because I've had the jab and 5G is detecting my thoughts? I've not been wearing a foil hat. Do you think I should make a new one?

    That's good!

    Well, could be calendar and heavenly related.

    Mind you the thought police at BookFace do track just about every keystroke. My browser has FB related security shield add-on.

    Amazing what one can find out about prospective tenants......
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Don't forget the cat:

          I don't see the dogs as a problem, they know that you are the top dog; it's those evil-eyed cats that are reading your thoughts and manipulating you. (Ask any cat owner).

          PS. Unless your goldfish is called Klaus and used to be an olympic ski-jumper I think you are OK there too.

            I wouldn't bank on it. Look at what has happened to women, the goalposts moved without enough time to add sufficiently to their pension pot to make up the shortfall....

            I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

            Used this for a while for a relative - and you can also get a 3 month one if you can't afford the year

            A bit off topic, but for anyone taking regular medication and is under 60, it's possible to buy a prescription pre-payment certificate, which costs £108.10 for 12 months of all the medication you normally pay £9.35 a pop for.
            If you take more than one type of medication it's a real saving -...

            I'm surprised to be in agreement with you Art.

            Probably the best decision at the time.

            But how to redress the balance?

            Winter Fuel Payment for mansion owners? Bus passes for Bentley owners? State pension freeze? Free (for all) prescriptions? Scrap...

            Interesting you seem to suggest NHS usage is a "benefit". (I'd not argue with you..)

            Being aged 73, I object to be described as the "weakest in society": The e.g. poor, the sick, the homeless, the abused, the downtrodden I'd consider some or most, sadly for them, usually...

            Class 1 NIC's are compulsory. I'll certainly be drawing the state pension when I can but I could and have made far better investments elsewhere....

            Then why didn't you? The state pension isn't forced on you....

            Only if they didn't invest it (and monitor it to make sure it's keeping on track).

            If I'd invested all the money I've had to pay into state pensions, I'd be buying a Bentley at retirement age, not claiming a free bus pass....
