Anne1
Heather put oot a wee saucer of red wine and they laugh.gif will all come out gon a dare ye
Heather
Anne, it's one thing watching the squirrels prance about the garden, but to go up the loft, look them in the eye, and waste a glass of wine into the bargain, you cannot be serious. I'd pass out with fright. ohmy.gif
Anne1

Well of to physio again this morning and after that got to go to Wishaw general Hospital for bone density scan[had this done 18mths ago but all info between hospital and Dr lost] The Dr, said to me you didnt go for test did you I said yes I did told what the procedure had been that day, she said oops they must have forgoten to send to us the results when she checked they said I hadnt turned up. makes you wonder doesnt it laugh.gif
stratson
Anne1, what total incompetence, bone density tests(which I have undergone periodically for 25 years) usually are to test for Osteoporosis. So you may well have missed out on medication for 1 year. Hope all goes well. mad.gif
Hope the physio is helping, do you still have pain? Take care, soon be holidays>>>>Yippee.

Today have some things to do, no garden today, looks like rain anyway. Put a lot of work into it yesterday after my chiropody appt.

I'm just relaxing today after being at a Ladies only Dinner & Dance last night. We all had a good time and the meal was very good.
That Strip the Willow dance fairly wears you out. It's one of my favourite's with all the birling and whirling. wacko.gif


Margaret Curran the Labour MSP for this area who also lives in the area, comes to a lot of our ladies nights out and the couple playing the music and singing couldn't avoid having a go at her about claiming the night out on her expenses. laugh.gif
She took it in good part and also had a laugh.
There's no grandstanding with her, she comes with a couple of friends and just enjoys herself like the rest of us.

Back on the Physio training track then of to shops to take back a couple of tops I bought fpr my holidays and get something exchange laugh.gif
Heather
What a day I have ahead.

I have a Dental Appointment as I think I need a couple of fillings.

This afternoon I have an appointment with a Solicitor about the 64-73 AOL say I owe them. I haven't a clue where AOL gets this figure from, that's why I have refused to pay it.

Ten days ago I got a letter from a Debt Collection Agency demanding immediate payment of 81-98. This is the 64-73 plus 17-25.

Yesterday the same Debt Collectors sent me a another letter threatning me with big legal fees and sending a Representative to my door to collect the money in full.

I have never been in a position like this in my life so need Legal advice about what happens next.
I really do resent paying a Company money I don't owe for a Service I did not sign up to.

AOL are now making out that AOL Broadband and AOL UK are two different Companies, and when you sign for the Broadband you automatically sign for AOL UK.

There is nothing about this in the written contract I have with AOL.
The contract clearly say 9-99 for six months starting July 2008 then 14-99 there after.
On top of that the UK lot took 5-48 from my Bank Account for eight months for McAfee Suite which would not download to my Laptop, so I got my Bank to stop the payment of 5-48 and in error they stopped the 9-99 payment at the end of October.

AOL Broadband said the Contract was cancelled at the end of February and my summing up works out at two months at 9-99 each and two at 14-99 a total of 49-96.

They also sent me an email saying the McAfee suite account is activated when downloaded. But as I never downloaded it why have I got to pay for it, and how did AOL UK get my Bank details to debit my account, because I have never had any contact with them??

I have all the letters and my Bank Statements ready to take to the Solicitor so he can see for himself what has been happening.

Confusion is the name of the game.
Anne1
Good luck today Heather

Heather
I went to the Solicitor today and she advised me to phone Roxburghe the Debt Collectors and ask for a breakdown of the 81-98 they want and to put the Action on Hold until I get it.
They would then have to contact AOL for a breakdown of the 64-73.

I did that, and they said they could not give me the breakdown and would not put the Action on Hold. I asked them to Hold off Action until I got a Breakdown from AOl, but again they refused.

It was a right arrogant person I spoke to, and although she was English I had to keep asking her to repeat what she was saying and speak slower.

The Solicitor also said she would be surprised if they took Court Action for 81-98 and some of the wording in the letter does not apply to Scottish Law. They would have to raise an Action in the Sherriff Court and I would be notified about this. They can't come to my house and demand money.

With my kind of luck I'll probably end up in Court.

She also said that as AOL are operating as two different Companies it will be for tax reasons and how they operate from within should not affect the consumer.
So if that's the case then it's AOL who owe me money. Over nine months they debited my Bank Account for 91-02 and going by the Contract I have with them they should have been paid 89-92. So they owe me 1-10.

But I feel I'm back to square one.

The Solicitor gave me her card with her email address and I sent her an email letting her know what Roxburghe said.

Went to B & Q late night and got rerr bargains in bedding plants, some marked down to 50p, 1, 1.38 AND 2 all in all 11 trays. A real nice guy gave me a lift to my gardens and helped carry them up to my plot. Between showers over the weekend will plant them(I was waiting on a taxi)
Not usual for me to go in a car with 2 strange men.......times are tough laugh.gif
I gave him 3.50 all I had in small change, he was reluctant to accept it however I insisted. Taxi would have cost double that, guess my guardian angel was at work. Full of beans and rerrin' to go.
Have even already prepared veg and meat for tonight's dinner.
Back tae bed noo tae watch Jeremy. smile.gif

Heather
Did the housework then when the g'daughters came over we played a couple of games of Croquet.
While one amused herself on the Laptop, the other one helped me put in some bedding plants.

Now I have to pack my bag as we are off to Callendar tomorrow for the week-end to celebrate my Aunt Barbara' 90th birthday.
About 30 of us have booked into the same Hotel and it has a Dinner Dance on a Saturday night. So I'm looking forward to it. smile.gif

My youngest grandson's high school graduation is this afternoon so I'll be in the arena to see the ceremonies. It is a great day for them, they are piped into the arena by our local pipe band and sit on the stage, when their name is called they go forward to collect their certificates. After that all the awards are announced, hopefully Cameron will get something. Last year Kyle graduated and came away with 3 awards for a total of $4,000. There are 96 graduates from our High School this year. The school is called Selkirk High School not after the town but the mountain range close to here.

Lindamac, I did like you, spent today at home (I have been in bed most of the day),after bedding my plants and red and white onions, another couple o' hanging baskets, spent too long on my feet so have to pay the penalty, my feet and ankles were swollen.
You have a lovely house to enjoy .
Bet your gaun daft arranging everything,

Heather
I took my two g'daughters and one of their friends to the swimming pool today.
The one who had her friend with her, also met up with another two friends who are in their class in School. The five of them had a lot of fun and enjoyed themselves.
Afterwards we all went for a Mickey D. laugh.gif

We had a really good time in Callander at the week-end.
The meals in the Hotel were very good and the bedrooms big and comfortable.

The music was provided by a guy who was a terrific singer.
He finished just before midnight, so we all sat there and had a good old fashioned sing song the way we used to do at family gatherings years ago.
There were 35 of us with the age's ranging through four generations.
My Aunt's daughter came home from Canada bringing her daughter and g'daughter with her.
There were a lot of good solo singers, then someone would start a song and the rest of us join in. 'I Belong to Glasgow' got a good airing.
By two'o'clock in the morning most of us were tired out with all the dancing and singing, so off we went to bed.
The next morning at breakfast, other guests in the Hotel told us they enjoyed the sing song and has also joined in.
glasgow lass
Heather your weekend in Callendar sounds lovely, did you have a nice time Heather, I went there wae the school a few times , is it still as lovely as ever,, sniff. A bought my mother w wee blue and white jug with the word Callender written on it, she's kept it all this time. smile.gif
Heather
Lass, as it's many years since I was last in Callander, I can't remember if it has changed much.

There are a lot of shops to browse through, but I did not buy anything.
As it was a Saturday, the town was busy.

On the way home, my cousin' husband took us the long way through Aberfoyle and Loch Katrine and too many other's to remember.
Well we didn't exactly go through Loch Katrine, more like around it. laugh.gif

As they are both Hill Walkers, we got a lot of commentary about all the places we passed through and stories about some of the funny things that happened to them on their walks.
glasgow lass
I love walking the Hills also Heather, maybe one day I'll get to do some beautiful hills of Scotland. biggrin.gif
Heather
Lass, my cousin and her husband Jim, have been walking the hills for years.

Jim has walked the China Wall and brought back a lot of picture's. He takes picture's everywhere he goes. Even driving home on Sunday he stopped the car to take a picture of an archway/tunnel of trees we were driving through. laugh.gif
glasgow lass
Sounds like they love it Heather long may it continue for them. Last month we did a ten day hike through Rome and surrounding areas right into Umbria , Lake Bracciano and through into Tivoli, and then some LOL. Hiked for at least ten to twelve hrs every day,,, lots of hills and steps in Rome, but must say that it was exilerating tae say the least biggrin.gif
Heather
Ah Lass, the only steps I walked up in Rome were the one's in the Vatican Museum and the Spanish Steps. laugh.gif

You seem like a serious walker yourself and that was some hike.

Heather
I was on my soap box today after reading the report in the newspaper about the 13,817-00 abortions in Scotland last year.

I asked my g'son if he knew anything as disgusting as that, and with a frown on his face he said, " yes, Rangers winning the league ".
I must admit I couldn't help laughing at his reply.


Honestly, can the men ever see anything more important than football.

Not so much about what I did today but what I did tonight.

It was our 11yrs old g'daughter Confirmation tonight and I was very pleased to be her Sponsor.

Everything went well and the Chapel was packed to the doors.
The Bishop is so patient, after the Confirmations and Mass he cheerfullly stands there so all the children, Sponsors and parents can have a picture taken with him.
There where 56 children getting Confirmed so the poor soul must be worn out, never mind I'm sure God will bless him. laugh.gif
