  1. What put me off Amazon was getting enrolled in the "Prime" thing by stealth I really didn't remember ticking anything! only knew when the fee money appeared on my bank statement in fairness to them one phone call and I got my money back. And as for waste what about Barclaycard they send me a letter at least every month about transferring all my credit cards to them. Why don't they pop it in my Barclaycard bill or e-mail it .been going on for years now, a whole rainforest worth! BTW I only have ONE credit card anyway!
  2. Thanks for the tips everyone I'll make notes in my Broads book for next time Some very decent folk on here I must say. You wouldn't believe how disappointed I was when I went to turn into the Cafe Carpark to be met with a wall of concrete blocks! And to cap it all we eventually picked up Sandwiches in the motorway services which were awful and I think gave my Wife food poisoning, not a nice trip back.
  3. Disappointed to find the transport cafe "The World Famous Comfort Cafe" (Cambridgeshire) closed down on route back from a week on the Broads. Apparently been closed about a year it was really handy for us when traveling back and forth now there only seems to be Fast Food or expensive places. The good old transport places are really rare!
  4. Seasickness has to be one of the worse sensations you just pray for deliverance!
  5. When my Daughter was little on a rough ferry crossing with her school she was the only one able to stand I put this down to our regular Broads holidays even before she was born!
  6. Now that's my problem not enough time on the water! sounds a good cure to me !! Peter,
  7. Faced the Cold and the wind even the rain and the huge waves but could not walk to the New Inn Rockland from the Staithe without falling headfirst into the road! bruising and grazing myself all over and spitting out a tooth Thank you to the people at the Pub who helped me up. I had a good time despite the accident but now must face the Dentist! Has anyone else felt unsteady on land after being a few days on the water? BTW no alcohol had passed my lips before the tumble!
  8. For goodness sake Norwich easy on us Swansea City Friday night our owners sold us out to American so-called investors who have sold the first team and left us with the reserves and under 23s at least Norwich have a reputation as an attacking team and deserve to be doing well If it's too bad a result I'll be incognito when I arrive in Norwich Saturday to start my week on the Broads!
  9. I forgot I'd used it at Norwich once! never again, you live and learn no damage done but a nicely plowed riverbed I bet!
  10. I know I'm getting on but the last couple of times I've used a Mud weight I had the devil of a job retrieving it afterward I've been advised to lower it gently so it doesn't sink too far in the mud, Ill try that next time!
  11. Ok, where are the Moles there ought to be Moles!
  12. Hey, leave the Welsh alone! It's funny how home countries folks have the rise taken out of them Norfolk included ,but try it when the recipient is a West Indian or a Pakistani or other and everyone is up in arms, same with religion you can say what you like if it's directed at a Christian not so easy to mickey take some others! Who wrote all these rules anyway?

    I know I'm stupid I hate having to kill anything living. Rats are fascinating creatures that are in the wrong place they are good parents and nurse injured members of their family etc, but they are really nasty when caged I won't tell you what one of them said to me! I know it's a case of them or the health of my family but I still hate doing it (Should have been a Buddist or something!).

    Not a boat but we discovered the kitchen waste pipe eaten through in the cavity wall only found out when we wondered where the wastewater was going when it didn't appear outside I've put big traps down and a man came with bait boxes but they are craftier than that. Thinking of getting a couple of Jack Russells dogs as our Labrador is a bit slow and soft. And I thought life would be easy moving to the countryside! BTW you can get an Aerosol to spray on cables but don't breathe it in for goodness sake!
  15. Alan, was Bayco the one with little steel rods you could your stab yourself? Would never be allowed now! I had one loved it the plastic bricks slid in between the rods.which were slotted into a baseboard.
