  1. Gas & Electricty supplier fake phone call

    Just a heads up, about 10am I recieved an answerphone message in respect to supplying my gas & electricity readings to an 0844 number or a website - and nowhere in the call did they say the name of my supplier. So, I called my supplier and then indicated that no readings are due (I in fact did...

    Energy bills

    Boring subject but I am paying around £150 a month from British gas for gas and electricity in a four bed detached house with cavity and loft insulation. Sounds miles too steep to me unless my neighbour is running a cannabis farm off my supply. Is anyone getting a better deal?
  3. Any builders and or electricians on here?

    Need a bit of work done in the garden, a wall that need some slight repair work on it, and electricity to go into the shed via the wall.
  4. Any electricians on here

    As the title says I'm thinking of having electricity put into the shed, but will need a sparky to do it.

    Southend Energy

    Some friends of ours have just changed over from their current energy provider (gas and electricity) to Southend Energy and reckon they are saving money as a result. I've had a look at the company on the web and have lifted the bit below. Anyone already done this, and are they any good...

    Did you know ?

    Just reminiscing and it occurred to me that there are people young enough here not to know things about our great town. I'll start with footie related ones since that was what I was thinking about. Football at Snakes Lane where David Lloyd is now. The home of Hawthorna FC. Nice slope and if...

    Benefit Caps Kick In

And we'll have to cut our use of gas and...

    The Kill Shot

    Ok Zoner's a question for you all...In my early days of paperwork (at the office, at home or wherever) when we did not have computers and the technology of today, unless a fire caught us out we felt quite safe in the knowledge we had the papers to cover things. What do you think would happen...

    We Are Facing a Drought

    According to those who know these things, we are facing a drought that could rival 1976. Here's an solution, who agrees or disagrees, like I don't already know. We currently have an energy shortage, a water shortage, and a need to reduce our carbon footprint right? So shut the hippies up and...

    Question Electricity from solar panels

    Hello all, I've seen a few ad's for electricity from solar panels. Seems you pay for installation and the electricity you use is free for 25 years (long enough for me!) and any extra gets sold to the National Grid. Has anyone invested and if so, any good? Cheers!
  12. Fix your heating bill!

    As Scottish Power have kindly raised their gas prices by 19% and Electricity by 10% my advice is to get on a comparison website and get a fixed tariff. I did this, this morning, saved myself £8 p/a but fixed my prices until 2014. Get on it before they wise up and pull the offers, cos you know...
  13. Memory Lane Pubey's trip down memory lane

    I don’t know why, I guess I’m just getting old, but yesterday I had a real sense of nostalgia. I spent the evening thumbing through our wedding album with Mrs Pubey, a regular pastime, and my eye was drawn to a family who have been ‘family friends’ all my life. They were...

    Question Wot are you looking forward to this Summer?

    For me, a few obvious things, others a bit more unique. In no particular order: 1. The World Cup, watching every key game (and most of the others) where poss with a beer in hand. Might be a bit challenging at times, for the USA game I am helping out at junior school camp at a sloping field...

    Question Gas & Electricity suppliers...

    Just bought a 2 bed mid terrace house in Southchurch. Had new combi boiler installed and have finally got round to sorting out the Gas and Electricity suppliers. Have a 3 week old boy so heating currently on low/medium 24/7 and with this missus home I guess our electricity consumption is...

    Question Is climate change a Good thing?

    ****ing obvious if you ask me, of course it is. My electricity and gas bill is £140 a month and anything that is going to cut that down is worthwhile. I also won't get the slightly ******* feeling i get when i print my emails, and lastly i like the sun.

    SZ Novella - Chapter 8

    Chapter Eight - The Reduced Hypertherpia of the Closed Mancharia Osymandus pulled on a pair of heavy trousers and sucked the fetid air in through his teeth. Behind him, Rick Astley's body congealed silently on the floor, but of all the contributory factors to the awful smell in the room, he was...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Champions League Reports

    Apologies, I've been rushed off my feet this week. Here's both games for you. Is it so inconceivable that Arsenal could end this strangest of seasons as Champions of Europe? Arsene Wenger described his side as 'super-outsiders' before the first leg of their clash with Villarreal, but even after...
