Nobby - it sounds like you're a candidate for the Microsoft antispyware program called Windows Defender. It's currently in its Beta 2 version, but I've been running it for months, and I find it really excellent.
You can download it for free at the link below.

Of course, Patrick used to be an estate agent.

There are many who don't see that as making an honest buck. I couldn't possibly comment of course.

I know I am less than impressed by his website, some of the information on it, or his presentational skills, and would not employ him. I would not recommend his services to others, either.

That's my choice. I speak for myself of course.

This, as I've posted eleswhere, is how some of these conservation organisations work; some people care beyond their own personal gain:

Now - who was it posted only a few days ago to say that he didn't want these links all over the website?

I still haven't changed my mind - I wouldn't employ someone who I wouldn't trust to be civil.

I don't think that much has changed, really.

The only one of these organisations which could be remotely called a quango of course is EH.

The others have a small legal remit as statutory consultees to comment on planning applications which affect the historic environment. Beyond that, what they do is up to their charitable remit and the aims of the society concerned.

Yes, I agree. The complete list of official leaching tax suckers can be found using the link below.

I gather that following the emasculation of EH the Arts Council may well be curbed too.

Well, who needs heritage and the arts? Not with an Olympics in the offing.

Oh - I think sport may be one of those blood suckers too... and hey, the V and A Museum? The Tate? Criminal Injuries Compensation Board?

Away with the lot of them! The government doesn't need advice.

Northern Ireland, Kashmir, Gaza, Korea, Vietnam etc etc. Add to that list The Period Property Forum.

Entrenched views on both sides.

It's Friday night, crack open a bottle, put your feet up and chill.

Thinks of good subjects to post about:

The Merits of UPVC or
Portland Cement. Should everbody have a bag?

Oh, I'm quite chilled! Strong sense of the ridiculous.

This is light relief.

Still wouldn't employ his services though!

Can't think of many merits - but Portland Cement I like in small doses.
