Ikea send them at their expense from the warehouse on the mainland to here. At t...

Land Tax anyone ????

Hi everyone, I have heard, which may be 'a rumour' that the government are thinking of bleeding us all with a land tax. This will be based on the square metres of the land your property sits on, or in fact any land one may own.

Anyone else heard of this???????

Get a couple of huge rescue dogs. Keep them in the house. Although the burgulars may poison the dogs to gain entry (if they think you have to a lot to steal) at least if the house next door has no dogs they may prefer an easier time!!!
