    Any state pension specialists?

    I don't understand. According to one part of gov't website I only need 30 years fully paid NI to qualify for full basic state pension. Then elsewhere I check my NI contributions and I'm paid up 30 years in full but it also tells me I have made no contributions in the last 4 tax years and need to...

    Budget 2014

    One thing is confusing me, from the bbc website: How can the debt be lower if there is still a deficit?

    Secondary school appeals

    Guys and girls, hoping to draw on the wealth of knowledge and experience that's seen on here from time to time. To cut a long story short (not sure if specifics matter), we live in Westcliff at the moment but are planning to move into Rayleigh sometime in July. My son is at Blenheim school at...
  6. Wireless Network problem

    Hi all, So basically I've got a Sky (Sagem) wireless router down in our lounge (where our telephone point) and it works fine. I've run a long Cat5 cable around the house to our very top (attic) room because the wireless network doesn't stretch to there and I want to use it as an office...
  7. Confusing leak

    Hi all, I live in a 3rd floor flat, and in the last couple of days a large wet patch has appeared outside our front door (in the communal hall). Our front door has our neighbours front door next to it in an "r" shape, with our door the top of the "r". The wet patch seems to have spread right...

    FC - Match 3

    Me 1st at home to 4th in a match where I should win especially with almost all at sublime. Gone with 4 bowlers and could add a 5th in-game if needed. Weather is confusing me. On my dusty I have Sunny followed by 2 days of partly cloudy & humid. Would you bat or bowl ?

    Reasons to love Hitchcock

    1. In 'Psycho', where the guy is creeping up the stairs to check out the mother's bedroom, and the camera switches to an overhead view and then - out of nowhere - she rushes out knife in hand. ***** me up just thinking about it. 2. For that amazing shot in 'Frenzy' where you realise that the...

    Dreams irritate me and frustrate me. Sometimes I cannot remember dreams and I am left scratching my balding head wondering what or who I was dreaming about. Other times I remember dreams that are not pleasant and make me question why I had a certain dream. When I was in my teens I had a...
  11. Long live Southend United Football Club

    Now im not sure if this is the right place for this post but hay.... Im only 19 and to be honest, reading through all these posts has just confused my little brain. Ive supported the blues since i can remember and have some amazing memories, "beating man united", "drawing away to swansea &...

    Confusing Dr Dre Lyrics. Number One in a Series of One.

    In the fabulous Dr Dre track 'Keep Their Heads Ringin', the former NWA man opines that: 'I'm the ***** that keeps the hoes fannies wet.' Now, as we well know, for an American, 'fanny' means bottom. Are we to assume that the good Doctor is giving these young ladies diarrhea?

    Senor Jekyll outwits Senor Hyde

    If the World Cup is anything like this, we're all in for a treat. You could always sense that the destiny of the Confederations Cup would be determined by the identity of the Brazil team that turned up. If it was the Brazil who lethargically struggled past South Africa, then the USA would strike...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Five

    Chapter Five - Red Sky At Night, Stokes' Delight Ricey sprinted down the back-alley, feet slipping and sliding on the wet concrete as he went. The sound of a gunshot echoed off the walls and he instinctively ducked, almost falling to the ground. Reaching the end of the passageway, he turned...

    Scolari's Not To Blame

    Luis Felipe Scolari may have paid the price for Chelsea's bleak midwinter, but who was really to blame for the club's decline in form? The Brazilian boss may have made mistakes in his short reign at Stamford Bridge, but he was never given the tools he needed to rebuild an ageing squad. It was...

    Rafa's Ridiculous Rant

    Eagle-eyed readers will know that I had Liverpool to beat Stoke 3-0 in my weekend predictions, a bold but fair shout given the collapse in form from Tony Pulis' side. What you won't know is that just three hours after filing that article, I was sat on my sofa watching Rafa Benitez's press...

    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

    Arsenal are the architects of their own problems sometimes. Their failure to secure top spot in Group G can be attributed directly to their inability to beat a woeful Fenerbahce side at The Emirates earlier in the campaign. That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

    2007/08 season

    For all the moments of high drama, the goals, the saves and the tears, I've got a funny feeling that the 2007/08 season will be remembered as the year that the owners of football clubs across the land finally lost their tenuous grip on reality. It's as if there is a private competition between...
  20. Trailer for the new X-Files movie:

    It's from a video camera so it's far from great but you get the idea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKFvQ8yt-7E Apparently the new film is going to be a 'Monster of the Week' type story rather than dealing with the Alien Conspiracy stuff that got far too confusing after a few years. Should be...
