Going nuts over Cookies...

Instead of blogging today, I have spent a lot of time trying to sort out a problem that I woke up to this morning.

Specifically the new 'cookie consent' pop-up which Google somewhat unhelpfully introduced out of 'courtesy' in the last 24 hours or so.

Their intention is to make sure that Blogger blogs comply with some EU legislation that the Eurocrats haven't thought through properly, so it isn't really Google's fault. I'm sure they'd rather it wasn't necessary too.

Nevertheless, the pop up is a nuisance and it is very unwelcome...

Beware of the Uniform Benefits claims companies

One of the most objectionable mailings that I've seen recently, from the parasites in the UK's claims industry, is this one entitled Uniform Tax Rebate.

Completely unsolicited, as always, the official looking letter dropped through my letterbox on Friday. More accurately two of them did, with each mailing bearing different claim numbers.

That immediately told me who shared their mailing list with my details on it, so I won't be buying from them either...!

Rainy day in the Garden

I am slightly soggy whilst sat here blogging at the moment, having been outside in the garden, fiddling & mucking around (or something like that) whilst it was raining.

I am sure my neighbours must think that I am a complete nutter, because I tend to stay inside more and am rarely seen outside when it is nice & sunny. I dislike hot days, as they sap my energy and I burn easily.

My excuse for being outside today, is that it is the first seriously wet day that we have had in nearly 2 months...!
