    Keep an extra coat in the car (yes I've seen people walk in cold weather without a decent coat), hat, gloves, walking boots/wellies.

    Like penny stocks?
    Like Cannabis?
    Like some exposure to the US OTC market?
    Like a stock that grows?
    Do your own research of course - a risky stock of course in the early stages. Will it hold 10p?

    Here is a medium sized agricultural firm (tractors + grain) that has diversified into some engineering as well.
    Assets growing, debt much the same, earnings per share up.
    I know that they have been expanding near me and have recently bought over a small independent feed + equestrian store + pet grooming place. 
    I bought a small holding and plan to buy more if they drop

    WTF is going on here.
    Surely you just put the dirty clothes in the basket and get the clean ones from the wardrobe?

    I don't think cancelling Brexit would have stopped this - it is shopping on the smartphone that is killing the High Street. 
    Malls are closing all over the US - nothing to do with the EU.

    Thanks.
    Hmm I know this sounds stupid in this day and age, but you have to be there as a self appointed "on site project manager" for these kinds of things. No one else is going to bloody think or look out for you. I don't know if it is plastic or heavy metals (batteries being chucked in Landfill and going in to the water) in the brain but people actually need to be monitored.
    Example - phone (not home phone) on the fritz. Engineer came out checked everything - all was OK their end, and all was OK our end, so said the diagnostics. Was about to leave with the phone still out  - which has had a number of different people try to come out to try and fix without luck. We've had no phone for days. So we had the network engineer come out. I was the self appointed "project manager" at the time, and remarked, there have been some severe storms last week - perhaps water has got into somewhere. Ah, so the engineer went out to look at the box outside - and appeared to fix the problem after coming back after 3 hours. So if I didn't say anything we wouldn't be any closer to sorting out the problem. Well, until one hour later - the problem came back! Well at least we are a little closer....
    So yeah - be there as the project manager, tea maker, and security guard.

    In Southsea sea front - they have sensors under each space. I reckon that tells the wardens to check the space if the meter hasn't taken any money!
    Finding on-street pay and display parking in Portsmouth is set to become easier this year with the launch of a new smart parking system, AppyParking. Visitors using the app will be able to drive straight to a pay and display parking space helping to reduce congestion on the roads and air pollution. This week will see the first sensors installed in on-street pay and display parking spaces.
    The council has teamed up with technology firm, AppyParking, to install around 4,000 new smart parking sensors in on-street pay and display spaces across the city. Over the next few weeks, a rolling programme of parking suspensions will be put in place as the circular black sensors are installed at regular intervals in the pay and display parking spaces.
    The smart sensors that are being installed by Riggott & Co, are the first step in creating a system that will allow people to use the AppyParking App to see availability of on street pay and display parking space near their destination.  They will be abe to drive straight to areas with vacant space and then pay for parking sessions with a single click. People will only pay for the time they are parked within the bay and the sensor will recognise when they leave and stop charging from that point.

    3 things.
    1. As it is getting rougher - start up a company that adds riot shields to buses.

    2. They keep using glass for bus shelters, and they keep getting smashed. Replace with plastic panels - although it could be a conspiracy to keep the glass fitters in the job.
    3. So many wars could be avoided by destroying the key people behind ideologies. WW2 may have not happened if Hitler was assassinated early for example. China have got a good grip on this by control of the internet, and putting away political opponents.
    So I had this idea that we could have a drone that would loiter in the air, and take out someone with a long range sniper shot. But even with the most powerful batteries this is not very good. We already have Predator drones that can shoot missiles.  So how about some sort of robot on the ground with signals relayed back to base with a series of robots controlled by operators that operate by stealth. These robots could operate deep behind enemy lines and recharge themselves by moving themselves to standard domestic plug power outlets in offices/hotels or other buildings that they could access. Perhaps these robots could look like cats. If seen it would not cause alarm or suspicion. If however caught, they would have to self destruct. They could lay in wait for months at a time, and survey the area until the time is right and take out key targets when they have a clear shot, or call in a air strike. 
    OK so this is not going to be a cheap startup.
