    It's all those brass bands on every corner, they have ruined your hearing

    Think of it as the difference in experience of say the new world symphony, hummed by every lad from the hovis factory, played on a Bosendorfer or Steinway Grand, or a Nan's rattly old upright in the parlour.
    Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

      Give me Nan's rattly old upright any day - far more human! Though I do have to admit that the 1812 played really really loud via two Wharfedale Glendale speakers 9 inches apart on the floor with my head providing filling for the sandwich was a pretty cool experience...

      wassat? someone say something...???

        Why do the makers of pianos get capital letters, when the title of the music or the bread manufacturer don't? Go on, let's hear it.

          You are right I originally typed as usual in lower case and started to tidy up and then probably did some real work.

          I started, but I didn't finish or check my work.

            How true. How can the punctuation police justify get so worked up about an informal part of the site. We all have day jobs (well, most of us) and a quick off the cuff comment is exactly that. Hence my 24 hour self imposed ban yesterday when I upset someone earlier on this thread.
            On other posts, where accuracy is important, you can see the excellent work of the experienced.

              Oh don't mind it, it's just irritable poster syndrome, caused no doubt by a lack of fibre and noise- they should eat more Hovis ask the brass bands to stop playing LOL.

              There is a difference between having a little fun with other's typos and "no fun duh mentalists". I am not sure if any site has been able to draw that line!

                How can the Tone Police fail so miserably, more like!

                It wasn't a police raid, just gentle poke in the ribs, which LHA took with very good grace.

                His punctuation, expression and grammar are coming on brilliantly under my tutelage - please don't discourage him!

                And I wasn't irritated or even irritable. I was just curious.

                  I hope you're not referring to me as the upset party..........t'would take a lot more than that to upset me.

                      Some moot that leaving the EU may be thwarted by parliament. Theresa May is holding up EU citizens in UK as bargaining chips.

                      The Daily Mail Newspaper ( 19 July 2017 ) reported " the ice served by some leading fast food chains in their soft drinks is contaminated by faecal bacteria, it has been revealed "

                      mind the gap
                      Faecal contaminants in ice cubes are probably the least of your problems in fast food outlets. If you knew what goes into some of the food you would not touch it, let alone eat it.

                      Freezing bacteria doesn't often kill them, cooking them has a better kill rate.
                      Essentially, people need to wash their hands properly and they don't.

                      You're meant to wash them while you sing happy birthday twice (slowly) so you do it long enough.

                      I worked in McDonalds and various pubs while doing my A Levels/taking my gap year.

                      I still eat in McDonalds (and drink in various pubs, although not the ones I worked in!).
