    Insurance For Your Pets

    Our 2 cats are insured with Tesco. When the renewal came through in March it had gone up quite a bit and I thought about cancelling it. Fortunately I decided to keep the insurance. This summer one of the cats had to have loads of blood tests and a thyroidectomy that would have cost over...

    Poor playing times for concert! Not a good advert!

    I was playing for Yeadon Band when they did the inaugural performance on the band stand. The band arrived but no chairs did, luckily some of us lived locally and had to go home and gte our dining room chairs and deck chairs. It was a right farce. We put the percussionist on the band...

    Any suggestions for a good instrument insurance company?

    We've just changed the band'd insurance from Allianz Cornhill to BBIS. Quotes from both were virtually the same but we changed as we decided to have public liability insurance that AC don't do. BBIS were excellent and processed the forms by return - highly recommended.

    I'll be at home looking after my gorgeous 7 week old daughter. I wish I could be going but it just ain't possible this year. Maybe next year I'll be able to go if I can persuade Bassboneshep stay at home!

    It just has to be Sean for me with Pierce coming a very close second. He was such a dish back then but some of his outfits leave a lot to be desired especially the blue all in one swimsuit he wore in Goldfinger!
