    That may be good news but that landmark ruling now leaves the door open for legal companies to harass you about making a claim against PPI companies. Could be a never ending cycle.....

    Rooting Today might have to get busy since good news will be in short supply other than happy stuff about: puppies saving little children (happens at least twice a decade); Royals having babies or getting married (not really interested and it could be said that;s bad for the taxpayer's pocket); somebody wins the lottery (but that's bad 'cause it wasn't me); Bernie get finally gets busted (might happen but do we really want our beloved Leprechaun to go to jail?); somebody who we like, has integrity, honesty and he welfare of his/her people at heart wins an election (could happen, might have happened, but even if it does happen political power corrupts so in hindsight it could be very, very bad); ...

    ... me and Mephistopheles will try to find some, I promise (even if he doesn't LOL .... promise, that is)

    I shall persist with this thread even if the rest of you miserable sods don't participate. Not sure if any of you noticed but Andy Murray won the men's title at Wimbledon yesterday.

    There's a new beach outside our apartment :D

    That's our building in the background - the tall one.

    And that's a beer boat on the left :D

    Right that's it I refuse to point out the error in Brogan's post, and is that German attire I spy on that there deck chair....

    That, believe it or not, is a shirt my daughter picked for me when we were shopping...

    I just thought that even though you set up the deckchairs Brogan that somehow a German still managed to claim it first....

    The young lady with the lovely hat has no chance of creating any decent kind of sand sculpture as the sand is far to dry, bless her....

    The deckchairs are also provided, along with the parasols.
    Bit annoyed that I had to pay for my own beers though :D

    The sand is actually washed and extremely fine so it's not ideal but if you dig down a bit it is moist enough to make sandcastles :)

    Have you purchased yourself a rowing boat so you can cruise across from your building or do you have to trudge around in stinking London traffic?

    We just walk around the dock - the beach is at the end of it, so it's a few hundred metres.

    Now that you own beachfront property has the value of your apartment doubled?....

    Due to the implementation of the new beach, have you had to make budgetary adjustments to your holiday requirements in this fiscal year on a net financial savings basis...? And where will these unexpected profits be channeled?

    I love the way that you have splashed out on plastic carriers rather than refugee bags for your trip to the "beach" Brogan. Very Trecco Bay!
