There's lots of advice available via Solicitors etc, but that can be very expensive, so I'm hoping my fellow .netters will be the usual source of all knowledge and can answer a few questions :-) My mate got married around 3 years...

  2. The slippery slope of not wanting smokers outside

    We had a thread a while back about a poster complaining about being in a pub gaarden and a smoker sitting next to them and lighting up.

  3. "Coming out"

    Been struggling with my sexuality for some years and now I've met someone I really like. Any .netters with experience of coming out or considering it? Not an easy thing to talk about I know but just wondered how folk would react to me being bisexual?

    I've been trying to find out what's the highest recorded temperature in Edinburgh but I'm not having much success. Is there any way for me to find this out? The same information about York would be good too.

  24. why is council tax calculated by property value rather than income?

    been wondering about why council tax bands are determined by your property value rather than your income...also, why it's based on what your property was worth in 1991 (i think?) rather than something more up-to-date? seems odd to me, and rather arbitrary. there must be a good reason though?
