    Danny-boy got a reaction from MrGeorge in Gold playing cards   
    I have some gold banknotes lying around somewhere.

    Think I have the GBP set of £5 - £50.

    Pretty cool, but very little gold content. Nice to look at though.

    Why is the price still £799?

    Danny-boy got a reaction from Jordie in Today I bought this good. Buy or Bad ???   
    I think the seller did well at £45.

    These coins are not particularly sought after, notoriously hard to sell, and rarely fetch much more than about £20.

    Danny-boy got a reaction from arcglide in Making a Will   
    As an aside, if anybody has any AA products (breakdown cover, insurance etc), they usually have a free will writing service.

    I did ours last year, they send it to a solicitor for checking, you make the amendments and then print & get it witnessed.

    You can change your will manually as long as you sign each change.

    No, but they won't take silver or gold either.

    Put it in a paper wallet somewhere safe and you do "hold it".

    I'm in the construction industry.

    We have something called "Value Engineering ".

    When a project comes in from tender over budget (often an unrealistic budget), VE begins.

    Expensive things are re-specified cheaper, from the same or a different manufacturer. Corners are often cut, because if you can't get the building built (or refurbished) for the money the Client is willing to spend, then it doesn't get built and the project is shelved - nobody in the project team gets any fees.

    Building Control, on most projects, have had to take on the Fire Officer role also, due to cuts, so the fire brigade generally get no direct say in anything but the largest buildings (maybe £50M plus). Building Control have so much to look at and approve, lots gets missed. LOTS.

    90% of my role is compliance inspections, and on nearly every project, I pick up numerous items that BC have missed.

    I'm a dog with a bone, I will not let anything slip the net, regardless of who has to pay to put things right.

    If I had £5 for every time I have picked up something that could cause serious injury or death, I'd be sitting by the Med right now.
