    Ooh no, those look very much more aggressive than the ones I was thinking about! Mine were like this:

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ve...DxUV8T40FiM%3A

    If this doesn't appear as a photo (rather than just as a link), please could someone explain how I make it do that? Thanks.

      To attach an image inline in your posts.
      I'm assuming you are using Windows.

      Right click on the photo on the webpage and select 'save image as'
      Save the image to your PC.

      In the reply editor on the forum click the 'Insert image' icon (looks like a picture).
      In the box that comes up select 'Basic Uploader' (bottom right).
      Now select 'browse' and in the window that opens browse to the image you have just saved.
      Click on the image, click on 'open' (the browser window closes).
      Click on 'Upload file(s)'

      The image is now inserted into the editor.
      It will not look like an image in the editor, it will show like-
      [ ATTACH ]number[ /ATTACH ]
      but once you submit the post (or preview it) you will see the image.

      There are other ways to do it but that way is fairly simple to remember.

      I assume that this is the one you wanted?

        Yes indeed nukecad. Thank you so much.

        Mine (the loons) were generally purple velvet and I used to sew a braid fringe round the bottom for added hippiness. I must have looked like a rather bedraggled walking lampshade. I cringe to think of it now.

          Nukcad - those trousers you showed were bags not loons. I could not afford velvet loons ala MTG and just had the cotton drill types in burgundy and later lapis blue.

          I also used to split the seam on straight Levis from the knee to floor on the outer let and insert a contrasting or floral print to be really 'way out' Used to shop at Kensington market and Biba (before they moved to the old Derry and Toms building).

            My dad was firmly of the opinion that I couldn't afford them, either. But I did slave away in Woolies serving Pic'n'mix, earning the money, so there wasn't much he could do about it.

            .Oh, wow I did that too!

                Or perhaps they meant posseting. Which would smell gross.

                  Meditation, however, is about negotiating and agreeing a compromise.
                  Can you psychically connect with your landlord?

                    There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.

                      Why renew? Why not just let the tenancy run as a periodic?
                      There's no renewal fee payable to agent then.

                          There are properties that span boundaries, but probably not the one your quote refers to..

                                  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...

                                  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?

                                  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....

                                  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....

                                  This is especially true, given that if they DID pay into a pot just for them, then by the time they're old, the money is worthless....

                                  You'd still get your pension because younger people are paying for it. If there wasn't "younger people" then you wouldn't get it. Even with private pensions, they can't really last past the 22nd century when the global population is set to decline. Private pension rely on growth, and when...
