Uninteresting Trivial Facts

A book of verses underneath the bough,

A jug of wine, a loaf of bread - and thou,

Beside me singing in the wilderness -

Oh, wilderness were paradise enow!

Carol and I are sitting in the plateia, under the branches of a tree, sharing a jug of wine. It's the first time this year that it's really felt warm enough, so I thought I'd treat you all to a little Omar Khayyam. Cheers!

Chinese ad agency is copping flack for the alleged racism in this ad. The agency claims critics are being too sensitive. I've known a lot of Chinese so I know this ad is pure silliness - no Chinese person would ever let a black person inside their house.

Indeed; the bit of the match they actually saw rendered them unconscious for the following 7 hours and 55 minutes.

2. Images you should not masturbate to

Pah, I don't believe it.

 

They're just following the Zebras...or Pelicans.

A loss to Dewsbury, a bottle of bison grass vodka and some lemonade gets you very, very ###### ladies and gentlemen.

 

Chuck in some pork pies and Zoolander on Dave and you've got yourself an evening.

 

See you in the morning...! :dancing:

The neighbourhood foxes are having a sex party outside my house tonight.  It sounds like a scene from a horror film.

Good news!  I got a £200 refund from HMRC for overpaid charge that I appealed against 18 months ago for one of my companies.

 

Bad news!  I closed the companies a while ago therefore the cheque legally belongs to the Crown.

 

FFS...

If you are still within the timescales for the CT600 return then simply resubmit the CT600 and appoint yourself as the nominee on the form to receive any refund due. If you're not then simply bank it to your own current account and see what happens....

It wasn't a CT600.  I had a second company set up as a backup for certain emergency circumstances, it was dormant its entire existence and had no Corp Tax registration but one year HMRC decided I hadn't submitted a Corp Tax return and fined me.  I refused to pay, they fined me another £100.  I was told they would only cancel the Corp Tax registration, that I hadn't made, and consider an appeal if I paid the £200 fine.  No payment = no appeal.  I paid, the appeal was damnably slow, I lost the first appeal and appealed again, 18 months later I find I win but only after I'd closed the company.

 

I had to close the companies otherwise I'd be in breach of my NHS terms & conditions, I was given a six month exemption to either get rid or close, I closed.

 

The cheque is to the company name.  The company never had a bank account!  I'm going to ask them nicely if they'll pay it to me as an exception because they took so long.

Australia's new Immigration SWAT Teams, Border Force, are really on the ball:

 

Queensland Compliance acting Inspector Teresa Skellett said the Border Force would conduct future investigations in the region as part of a wider investigation.

"The Australian Border Force has information that there are a number of illegal workers in Australia at the moment," she said.

 

You can't get anything past them.

Don't really want to start a new thread so this one will do:

 

What is it with woollen ties?  They look cheap, nasty and like something the wearer's granny knitted for them for Christmas.  Too many people wearing them these days as if they're something special.

No doubt also massively expensive unless purchased at a jumble sale or from a nursing home sewing group.
