Did consider that, but I would probably end up owing THEM for a reply!

Only fly in the ointment is Mrs bulla opened the letter.

If it was worth 250 20 years ago then interest at 8% (which is what the PPI companies are allowed to claim for) mkeans it is now worth 1165.24. I'd go for it.

Quite right.
You could always threaten to write to The Law Society to let them know the situation, costs nothing, and is usually enough to get some action, worked for me in a similar situation.
Cheers, Trev.

Just uncovered a folder full of digital photos I took about 9 years ago of some classic Japanese trains which have since been consigned to the scrapheap of history; I'd assumed the photos had got lost between various computer moves, but it turns out I took them a year later than I thought, so was looking in the wrong place.

One here, and the Flickr album here (though unless you're interested in post-war Japanese EMUs it might not be so interesting).

Congratulations to your daughter. That is some achievement - and not without a lot of sweat and tears, (and encouragement), along the way I would think.  You deserve the title of 'Proud Dad'. :thumbsup:

60 mile round trip to Blackpool hospital in the peeing rain at rush hour time this morning. Gave my self plenty of time so I could grab a coffee before the appointment to download readings from my defibrillator implant. Appointment ran hour late, was in there for just 5 minutes and then back into the rain again.
This is in the Happy Thread as it means all is well. It hasn't gorn orff while I've been asleep or anything and the battery is good for another 5 years or so. Mucho relief :)
