I'd send a complaint to BBB about them.

Having approximately 30 spam messages left on my blog today. Fortunately, it is all in Japanese so I don't know what it is for, but i do have a fair idea so I am not clicking on any of them! It is taking ages to delete them all though.

Having the gas board coming round yet again to try and sort out the heating here; it packed in last week so they came down and replaced a valve, but the radiators still aren't getting hot like they should so they're having to come back, which means emptying out the whole cupboard where the boiler is and having all stuff like brooms, vacuum cleaners, ironing-board etc strewn all around the lounge! Mind you it happens every winter so should be used to it by now.

The engineer thought the pump was working too fast, so that lots of air was getting in and blocking the flow of heat or something. Anyway he's adjusted it so hopefully we'll be OK now!

This weekend past we had a great weekend with the dancers of our scottish country dance group in Ostend at the Belgian coast. But having to come back to Ghent Sunday afternoon it started to snow very heavy half an hour before we had to leave and what was normally to be a one hour drive became a 4 hour drive on a snowed under motorway with loads of traffic (apparently everybody wanted to get home at the same time !!) which later on became a very icy road and near Ghent there was a big traffic block ! I was pretty scared ! (I'm the driver here, my partner doesn't have a drivers licence)
I was soooooooo glad to get home finally !

Finding out that the earliest showing of "Quantum of Solace" on Friday isn't till 1:30pm and that's too late in the day for Harm and I to see it! We'll have to wait till it comes to the island theatre to see it.

Looks like it'll be the first time in years that we aren't going to a movie on the day after Thanksgiving :(

I left my purse at work - means I had to catch two trains without a ticket. Lucky there were no ticket inspectors.

On the 19th I returned two books I read back to Booksfree, today I got an email saying thanks for returning "one book"! I guess the package came open and the other book fell out :( This sucks!
