Re: Home deliveries

This list of deliverers in London was in the Evening Standard recently:

I can't say if they'll all be run off their feet now.

Re: cream wool wanted

Very good to read that you can complete your tapestry, knowing how long it must have taken thus far. Teabags are indeed very good and controllable so a good call :)

Re: Planetary Disaster Averted - Ozone Layer Healing

If there is any truth to the report, i.e. that near-zero CFCs has had a positive effect, rather than observational truth that could produce a perfect wrong conclusion, perhaps the biggest take away is that damage caused by humankind might not be permanent and that somehow the earth can mend itself, ...

Re: Estate agents boards

There are rules about boards now. Ask the agent if a board is valid or still valid (property live and offered by them or not more than 14 days beyond sold or let date). Most agents will remove them once reminded if invalid as I imagine the boards aren't cheap and of course destruction or theft is no...

Re: New shops on Kirkdale

Hi Makesydenhamgreat and welcome. The problem for eateries in Sydenham is that they don't attract enough bums on seats to stay viable with high rent and rates. Sydenamites central like to go "out" to the surrounds like CP, Beckenham, East Dulwich but few outsiders are attracted to come here. Nothing...

Re: Lewisham Hospital Cleaners

Yes, background people who rarely reach the headlines yet are as essential and integral a part of any functioning organisation as is anyone else.

It takes a lot for these people to up sticks and walk out so let's hope that whatever's caused the pay delay is put right quickly and without argument.

Re: Monday Night - BBC Panorama, Spying on the Scammers

Thanks for the heads up and alert to new scams. Why are these posted in the Asylum rather than to a wider readership?

Re: The Electorate's Ability to Swallow the Biggest of Untruths

The referendum wasn't just to decide whether to leave the EU because of the money the UK paid into it was it? In fact the bus myth was busted in every headline for a week before the referendum. However, I reckon the reality is that people who weren't in favour of the EU and its rules at voting time ...

Re: 242 kirkdale road

I could be talking through my hat but I'd have thought the land registry would show the legal ownership. Alternatively, the council tends to know who owns which commercial premises, but which department would tell you I don't know.

Re: Woodfall's Golden 50

If you need better quality lenses, e.g. thinner or lightweight ones or with corrections, they tend to be the same price at any optician (supplier catalogue price) so good service and after-sale service when paying a lot is valuable in itself - and Woodfall's are very good. They do sell inexpensive l...
