My cable land-line is not working and I don't know how long it's been down because I rarely use it! TV and B/B all fine. The phones themselves are powered but there is no signal. Virgin say there is no problem.! Has anyone else had a similar problem?
I've had periodic problems with both Virgin landline and broadband. This week it was the landline. I went to Virgin Media online, and the test showed no problem. But the site still enabled me to book an engineer visit - which I proceeded with. He came ... [ more ]
funnily enough my virgin cable landline is not working at the moment either. login to http://my.virginmedia.com and go to 'service status'. run the rubbish self diagnosis thing. (i had to restart it and run it a second time, it got to 99% and just ... [ more ]
Anyone else having trouble with virgin media broadband in sw11 area? This is the second time in a week we have no internet and can only get hold of robots on the phone. No clue as to what is going on

My daughter would like a spider plant for her bedroom. Does anyone have a Spider Plant we could take a cutting from? Many thanks!
I have two small plants, she's welcome to one of them, I'm in Battersea
Thank you ALL so much for your responses. Wonderful to think of all those lovely little spider plants out there! Kate and Lilja may I PM you first as you are closest, and if for some reason that doesn't work out I may well come back for more from ... [ more ]
Hello everyone, Today we had the first class of Pilates, we were not as many as we would have wanted, Raquel gave us a good work out. We would like to have another five participants for the 1pm class. We will probably combine the 2 sessions to have ... [ more ]
Thanks emmsar. Yes, the class was beneficial and not too fast paced. I am wanting to learn the breathing technique within each movement! So in my opinion the class offered this, rather than just move on to the next position. Have 1 more lady to join ... [ more ]

Why not visit Lambeth Palace Gardens, see leaflet for more details. The money raised will go towards the Rotary Club of Battersea Park 'Christmas Day Event' for the over 65's. http://www.rotarychristmasday.org.uk/
Don't forget that you have until Wed 10 August to get in your comments to the Mayor of London on why he should make the decision about the building of a 20,000 seater stadium, 602 homes etc on the borough boundary between Merton and Wandsworth. Impact ... [ more ]
I hope that someone can keep an eye on what happens to those poor greyhounds when it closes. Racing greyhound owners don't have a great reputation for their welfare once they've lost their monetary value.
That is true, and there are groups who do that. But hopefully this will be the beginning of the end for this cruel "sport" completely, allowing dog lovers to keep greyhounds as pets rather than money making machines. After that we need to end horse ... [ more ]

Looking at the Kumon website it states that you have to attend a training day to become a Kumon trainer. As you are advertising for the Earlsfield office and the training days are not in this area I was wondering when these training days would be? ... [ more ]
Hi Shirley, That may be to find out how to become a Kumon trainer at HQ. We are looking for class assistants for our centre in SW18 so your daughter trains with us. Essentially she learns on the job so is paid from the start. We have a surge in new ... [ more ]
I have some cardboard that rubbish collectors DO NOT wish to collect. Nothing special about, just a crashed Amazon box. For over a month now they were ignoring it in the bin shed and on the bin shed. Do I have to glue a quid on it for them to get ... [ more ]
Think you need to put your recycling in the orange recycling bags, otherwise they won't collect it.
Just spoke to Wandsworth rubbish collection department and they are perplexed too about crushed (flattened) cardboard not being collected, so reported it as an issue.
Am I the only one who has noticed a marked deterioration in the quality of products and customer service in John Lewis and Waitrose? Had two recent bad experiences with JL re quality of their own brand bed bases and appalling customer service. Still ... [ more ]

Any recommendations for someone to attend to an Epson R1800 printer? Mine is no longer printing well despite replacing all ink cartridges and initiating the head cleaning process.
Speak to Simon Thwaites on: 0208 874 7111 can't remember the name of the company but he's on old colleague of mine and he specialises in Epson.
I will follow up all suggestions given, starting with a head cleaning kit (the cheapest option) and then other paths will follow if required. Thank you all very much!
I have booked tickets for Tuesday.
Smashing thanks Deaba. Hope you enjoy the show.
Our Tomey is about 8yrs old, she is a Tabby/Tortoise shell - her front left paw is ginger - she looks a little chubby. She went missing on Saturday 24th September, from Tonsley Heights SW18. Tomey is mainly an indoor cat, and usually wouldn't go ... [ more ]
With a few tales to tell by the look in her eye...
Yes, looks like the pretty one had a good time! So pleased she is back safe and sound.

Hi Jo, yes indeed! Don your dancing pumps and head on over for an evening of terpsichorean bacchanal! And bring your hoofer friends!!
Does anyone know of a local salvage yard that might be interested in buying two original mid-century radiators? They are both a nice shape and worked well when we took them out of our house, so it seems a shame to take them to the tip. Or any other ... [ more ]

Thanks Dmitriy. I have signed the petition. Nuisance calls make me so cross. I worry about the vunerable people who can be taken in or at the least distressed by these calls.
Thanks for that! I get at least one a day despite blocking every single one that comes through. Drives me mad!
Moving abroad and looking for cardboard boxes. Please contact me if you have any to give or sell at reasonable price. Thanks
As many as I can get. Thanks
Still looking for cardboard boxes please if anyone has any. Thanks
I received this this morning, about protecting parks in the UK. Britain’s parks are at risk. There’s no legal responsibility to look after them and squeezed budgets mean our local green spaces - from playgrounds, to the park you relax in on your ... [ more ]
Hullo Jane. I'd say virtually all the Park is free to use, certainly much more than up until the late 1970s, and will continue to be so. My reason for writing was that there is no specific threat to Battersea Park yet the topic heading is specific to ... [ more ]
Gawd, Streetlife has just deleted my typing in mid-stream! To conclude... Al C does have a valid point in that there are London Boroughs who are considering disposals of parkland for residential development but to my knowledge Wandsworth isn't one ... [ more ]
Does anyone know of somewhere that I can get the covers for my sofa dyed? I've checked online and they seem to be far too expensive. Or can anyone reccomend a a home dye kit that will do the trick?
I've done the covers of two separate sofas and neither was affected really. The dyeing process is just at normal wash temperature so, if the covers are washable, then they are dyeable.
Thanks for that,I will dye with peace of mind :-)
I have lots of choral and solo sheet music. I can no longer sing so I'm looking for a home for this. I was a second soprano.
Ruth B If you are a singing teacher, do come and see what I have left. Some oratorio and opera scores still left, plus many individual songs. I'll send you the list of what's left. I was a soloist and reacher for 45 years, until I was in a car ... [ more ]
Thank you too Susan, I will get back to you soon when I have had a chance to have a look at your list.

Hi there, I have a spare hairdryer, you can take the plug off and various rollers and I am sure I can find a hairbrush. I will sort them out today. I live in Wimbledon
