    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) discussion

    Thanks, will make sure to wear some. I know, I'm not happy about it. Used lots of holiday last year booking off the one a week day in the office but it wasn't going down well. Had to do an occupation health interview, and for the last month had been going to another room on location but...

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) discussion

    Being forced back into the main office next week, to sit amongst 40 odd people with poor ventilation and no distancing. Pointless tbh as I remote to the same machine I do from home but hey, management wanting to be seen managing. Is it still the thought it can be caught via the eyes? If so...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    Something odd is going on with their stats, it was 160k the other week, then showing 1.8 million, now 1.1 million. The figures always looked small compared to the number of views. Aside from that, Amazon still deleting comments it seems.

    Mattresses - I need knowledge

    Our previous mattress was a Kaymed V85 Elation, which according them is "viscoelastic material", kind of like memory foam. They don't appear to sell it anymore. It started forming dips within 2 years which put me off looking at memory foam type beds again. It's around 7 years old now and...

    Mattresses - I need knowledge

    When I was looking to buy I went from their sliding scale of firm to softest upholstery https://johnryanbydesign.co.uk/product/artisan-luxury/ It has the medium springs, the soft springs are for a very low body weight I believe. I'm going for a refund instead of swap, as you can only return...

    Mattresses - I need knowledge

    My John Ryan Artisan Luxury is being returned on Tuesday, softest in their range but it’s just too firm and neither of us are getting used to it.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    To be honest I'm not sure, searching for Silmarillion rights there were a couple of articles saying Amazon purchased them last July, but from what I've heard said recently on videos is that they don't. This from one of the producers seems to support the fact they don't: “We have the rights...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    From what I understand, they have "tv" rights to Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit. This includes the appendices on the Lord of the Rings book, which is where they seem to have chosen to work from. They don't have the Silmarillion which apparently covers the age they are presenting, so they...

    House Partially Built on Council Land

    As mentioned, an indemnity policy is the quickest and likely cheapest option. If you weren't selling then you could have looked at adverse possession, if it's been in the sole possession of the property for over 10/12 years that is a route to look at.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    Have to admit I did miss Glorfindel when it came out as I liked him in the books and the animated movie which I had watched since I was probably 4! :) The 'if you want him come and claim him' was cringe in the Peter Jackson movies. Edit: I didn't mind Arwen apart from the cringe line before...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    Agreed, I should have added 'some'. I don't know what issues they were, just in comments from some mentioning issues with changes from the books when discussing the Rings of Power. I hadn't read or played Witcher before the tv series and enjoyed the first series, the second not so much, but I...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    I can still see it doing well though. The Tolkien fans may not appreciate some of the changes, but I imagine most people will just watch it for something to watch if they have Prime already. Amazon will then hail it a success despite the current fervour. Edit: Some Wheel of Time fans weren't...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Prime)

    So you say you don't get why people are annoyed, but then say you can't be bothered trying to understand because it's just 'clickbait internet rage'. Haven't seen anything yet? The issues are there in the trailer already. Says the person who seemingly doesn't want to listen to an alternative...

    Page 7 post 129, the video will explain some of the grievances people have. If that's the case then the video really won't change your mind xD

    Colour inspiration for a living room

    We have stuck with Dulux Trade Supermatt white throughout, apart from kitchen which is F&B Wevet. We did try F&B Slipper Satin in the main bedroom, which looked quite light in photos, but on painting it on the walls it was a lot darker. It also made bubbles in places, so I'm not keen on F&B...
