  1. If any Estate Agents are being a bit shady, its for those who think they are being fed lies or untruths to make formal complaints to the relevant authorties or governing bodies. I read a little bit about it on Facebook the other day, but it just seems to be third hand rumours without any actual proof.
  2. Just finished watching the 'It's a Sin' series on C4, several characters in that, didn’t believe that HIV/AIDS was real until it started affecting those close to them. No doubt in a few years’ time someone will come up with a similar drama depicting the COVID deniers.
  3. I think you get a receipt when you have bought the stamps from the machine, but not used them for a couple of years. I can't understand how some people make money selling at low cost on ebay. One of my competitors sells something on ebay for £3.00, very simlar to what I sell on my website for £2.00, but they have ebay fees, paypal fees and postage to take out of that price, along with materials and time. I only have paypal fees plus materials and time and add postage on top. I don't see how on a sale of £3.00, theres more than 50p gross profit in it.
  4. I'm a sole trader and had no problem getting an account, give the Post Office Headquarters a call, if you have a fair few parcels going they may well let you open an account. I used to use the kiosks and never used the 'Safe to Fly' stickers (still don't). My go to one was at the Sea Terminal, but it was often out of order.
  5. We need a 2nd Class Postage service for small packages. I send a lot of stuff off Island to customers, some of it light and fairly low value, but if it goes over 25mm thick then the postage jumps from around £1.17 to £3.60. 2nd Class stuff could go on the boat, say two or three times a week. I also agree that you should be able to buy and print off postage paid labels on the Island. I have an account with the post office and use their 'Click & Dispatch' Service and print off my own address labels with the PPI (Postage Paid Impression) included. This works well for me as a business, bu
  6. I walked on a section of the Heritage Way the other day between Union Mills and St. Johns. I remember it when it was mostly mud and puddles. It has vastly improved and I thought the surface was good for walking on. I liked the weird chainsaw carvings and the sitting area with attached bike service station was interesting. I noticed that there was a water bottle refilling station next to the amenity site near St. Johns, a couple more of these along the way would be good.
  7. No doubt all tickets were issued within the rules, if they weren't then the receiver would have a good case to have the ticket cancelled. Are people moaning because they got a ticket for parking illegally?
  8. Ha Ha, are you talking about Manx Forums, Intelligent People and Rational Debate? those don't go together.
  9. I doubt if many Manx Welders would invest in the specialist machinery needed and probably more than just an afternoon of training required as said by someone.

    A lot of Company's are dropping sponsorship of things like motorsport as it's seen as bad form to be laying off staff and also sponsoring expensive sports activities. Without sponsors many teams and riders won't be able to afford to come over.

    There seems to be an arry of signage now for the Raad Ny Follan. There are the original blue marker signs, wooden signposts and now these stone obelisks.

    Was speaking to a friend a few days back, they said they had met a couple they know in Tescos, in chatting they were told that the couple had just come back from holiday and were just getting their shopping in before they started isolating. I'm sure this isn't allowed and when asked if he had reported them, they said no. I'm pretty sure I would have done, thoughts?
