    j815 arcadia 28 night cruise 20 oct-17 nov

    None of us know for sure we will be OK during a cruise ,but we have seen some people who just looking at them you would say "Don't Risk it." We picked up the coach on year and this couple were going on a world cruise? they could not move their cases around and both struggled to board the coach ,never did find out if they made it backhand I do wonder at times how many people travel with no ,or inadequate insurance...Davybe

    Over 75 TV licence SCAM

    For the last year we have not had to pay our TV licence ,being over 75yrs old, But have now started to receive demands via E-mail that my Direct Debits had been cancelled(I Never did pay it by DD) Checking on the official web page it is confirmed that people are receiving demand for payments or telling them they are due refunds? In my case the links on the scam mail will not work ,and as they advise do not give any bank details to these sites and you can check by visiting the official web site....Davybe

    lest we forget

    After my last post we went shopping, and passing the Memorial Gardens ,which are just up the road, we saw groups of school children leaving the gardens.Thought it nice that a local school had taken the children there . Some schools and Nursery's in Wales make quite an effort for remembrance Sunday.....Davybe

    lest we forget

    We have had two rememberance Sundays at sea one on Arcadia and one on Oceana. Both were very moving services to attend,the One on Oceana had several young men with visible wounds ,I presumed they were wounded in Afghanistan ,I found it hard not to shed quite a few tears. Both services were will attended. Our Local Service was very well attended with the church struggling to seat everyone ,and the Outdoor service was also well attended,Some people just have no thought or respect for what others have sacrificed ,so they can live free.....Davybe

    Renewing a Passport.

    Ours is a nice new post office and there was no queuing ,and I was told the time they take to renew was the same no matter which method you decided on.Not all post offices offer the full service. My problem was getting the right pictures and uploading them, just gave up not worth the hassle....Davybe

    Renewing a Passport.

    If we renew again (Will be 85) I would opt for the Digital application and pay the fee at the post office for them to do it all, including taking the pictures, as you say peace of mind....Davybe

    I was surprised to find out the Post Office can at some places do a digital application for you? just about the second cheapest way of doing it....Davybe

    And it is the cheapest way to do it....Davybe
  12. Just start the process of renewing both our passports, and thought I would share what I found out . You have several options, 1 Fill in form provide Pictures and post your self, 2Do it all on line which is the cheapest ,if you can upload your own pictures or get the taken Digitally at a shop? 3 Fill in form supply pictures and get Post Office to check and send (Dearest way) 4 You can get the Post office to do a digital form and Pictures for you (Extra cost around £16) which may be a good option for some. And do not to forget to check Your EHIC card which may need renewing (Free of Charge)....Davybe
