Wife has got me into Cobra Kai, which has surprised me as to how much I'm enjoying, which has Ed in a cameo role. A quick Google tells me he'll be 91on 15th November.

Fraudulent debit in Credit Card
at 11:44 26 Sep 2020

We use our credit card so very rarely that checking it tends to be inline with when we've used it and checking the pay by date.

On next month's statement we have...

PayPal / Google California

Rang bank to challenge, they say contact PayPal. We used PayPal once a couple of years ago, using my email address, no idea what card we used... But not current c.c. as this was newly issued this summer, couldn't remember password.... Cue fruitless cycle of trying to reset password.... Which requires the last 4 digits of registered card!

Have lodged a complaint via google....

Now we wait, in the meantime c.c. is frozen, but don't need it right now. But is so new that don't get how it's been used fraudulently, sure we'd not even used it yet.

Indicating something warm and making you feel part of the family

Or the militaristic sounding twin brother of the convicted Rolf Harris


Apparently the two being promoted by black faces are racist but the southern gentleman isn't.

On top of all the nonsensical road closures that are making it more and more difficult to traverse London they have 're-designated 90% of the bus lanes from time controlled to at anytime.

The 10% not changed tend to be flanked on either side by ones that have changed, personally I think this dangerous.

Grumble over.

Chinese "pause" word which means "that" but sounds like the N word.

The article goes on to say some Prof in USA has been suspended, but I guess it may not be simple use of the word, but how it was said; emphasis, tone, whom he was looking at when he said it.

If he was looking at no-one in particular with change of tone, this is a bit silly

If he looked an individual directly in the eyes, maybe dreaded dodgy water

If the above and an aggressive tone...

I always cringe inside when my wife's community (Latin American) use the Spanish word for black innocently, especially as I know they use a completely different word when referring to ethnicity, though I am not aware of racism in her community either here in UK or Colombia.

My wife even has an aunt who is known not by her name but by her colour, partly because she shares her first name with one of her sisters, and again is not used intentionally as a racist epithet more as a matter of fact.

Anyone else with examples of misunderstood unintentional racism?

COYB!!!!!
at 09:35 5 Sep 2020

Ok so it's efl cup and not the league, but it seems apt to 're-start against the team we were due to play mid-march when L1 was halted.

I have kept my match and train tickets for the cancelled game at Rovers, don't really know why, but I can't bring myself to bin them.

Covid still rules UK (and the world) but gradually we inch towards normality. Ok so no fans still for a few weeks at least, but football (at our diminished level) is back.

COYB!!!!

Owners, players and management staff come and go.... But there's something more powerful than covid no matter how many it kills it maims, that's the mad crazy illogical love fans have for their team no matter how good or, usually, and they are.

From Barrow's return to efl to their opponents today, Derby, and all in between collectively we hope for and dream of a glory season, just one will do for now.

Whatever happens I can tell you I'm Ipswich 'til I die!

Online readers of a certain paper let their prejudice shine thru
at 09:17 5 Sep 2020

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-54017475

In summary.

The online montage had 2 people in one picture and 1 in the other.

The 1 was the killer, the 2 the victim and his sister.

HOWEVER

The 1 was from the racial demographic of the paper's readership, the 2 weren't, thus an element of the readership have taken it upon themselves to vent hate online.

Job hunting
at 21:27 2 Sep 2020

It seems to me that while job adverts, specs etc. are nominally written in English it appears to be some sort of Orwellian New Speak. Really hurts my tiny (and getting smaller) brain reading thru some vacancies.

Recently applied for what I consider to be a menial job*, got thru to a testing stage (timed) one part of which was math. Having worked in insurance, financial services and having run a multi-million pound pay roll and expenses I consider myself good with numbers.... By Christ it was stressful, it took me a few days to work out what one of the questions actually meant!! Anyway, passed it and the English test I now have a telephone interview this Sunday.

*Job earns a lot less than I used to, and maybe I under estimated people currently doing the job. But a job, as they say, is a job and the industry I worked in relied on mass international travel, which is probably dead for the foreseeable future.
