    Has anyone had dealings with Virgin media trying to terminate my contract for broadband appalling customer service countless attempts to get a human being on the line finally got through to head office only to be passed back to robotic numbnut I visited vic centre only to be met by the same robotic individual who informed me that I would have debt collectors at my door if I stopped direct debit After three price rises in 18 months I was paying £46 just for basic broadband nothing else I have now had to resort to a formal letter of termination by a lawyer This company must have the most worthless customer service on the planet I wouldnt have virgin if they were giving £20 notes with it meeowed

    When I started work at hollbrooks garage on woollaton street we had a french Delahaye in I think it belonged to Howitts the printers it was a straight six triple carb and cable brakes All the front end was one piece you couldnt see any joins Big drop tank wings it had a forward or reverse stick on the floor and a electric shift on the steering column similar to the buses The mechanic that taught me had the gearbox out called a cotal gearbox it looked like a bomb and was just as heavy it was a convertable really great car but the brakes left a bit to be desired I also saw a Riley Healey lovely streamlined motor and a gigantic Alfa Romeo open top sports car it had twin spare wheels it sounded like a spitfire coming up from town meeowed

    I have just been to the new memorial on the enbankment and the workmen were brilliant one went to check if my grandfather was on and came back with it on his phone I would like to thank everyone who helped me on this quest My father never knew there was a grave I found that at arrass and i was the first of the family to visit he was a gunner in the RHA and was killed 1918 he only had a few months to go The workmen said it should be open in about the end of the month This means so much to surviving members of the family he was not recorded on any memorial here he was born in Radford and the church was demolished and the memorial lost I wish my father could have seen it but i can rest now i have achieved my quest once again thanks to everyone meeowed

    Look at parliament street since they banned cars its twice as bad now with endless lines of buses when you think the average worker works one week a month for nothing with taxation to keep our representatives in the style to which they have been accustomed We are the only employers who have no control over what we pay our employees They are clearly above the law We could do with another Cromwell meeowed

    The mayflower was a pig to get the cylinder head off we had engine hooks screwed into the spark plug hole but that would just rip the thread out They took a lot of persuasion to come off The renown was a bigger version not many of those left now meeowed
