With the impending gloom of just about every thing on the rise , as 2022 will be one of the most expensive years to which many people will feel the pinch financially wise ,

so bearing this in mind can you see people adding to the food in the food banks as many people are now struggling to pay bills and food as well,
so all round it seems that charity will begin and sadly end up in the home
as people struggle to eat and heat,

Q ; what points of view have you regarding the impending gloom on rising food price increases,  and heating bills,


It bothers me a lot, I'm already noticing a big rise in my weekly shopping bill, and every time I fill up the Yeti. Several years ago when it was all open fires here, I used to tell Dunc if there was any fallen trees in the forest, and he would go and cut it up and load up the Land rover with it all, he still has the wood store at the old barn, and he was talking about maybe doing it again. I take a carrier bag with me if I'm walking Dageus in the forest and I collect fallen pine cones, when they have dried out they are great fire lighters and smell all piney.


and smell all piney..... you should hang them in your car and save on air freshers.. :clap: :yahoo:

In four years my electricity bils has slightly more than doubled - and that's before the next round of increases. Much of the increase is the 'green levy'. So far I can afford to cope with these increases, but I am sure that a lot of people will really struggle - and all to reduce the planet's emissions by a tiny fracture of one percent whilst China continues unchecked - madness
Thank you for the days, the days you gave me

I'm not sure if it's true but I did hear a radio talking-head say that there are now 2 food banks for every McDonald's in the UK ..


Well on the fuel bills issue I think the the old brown stuff will be hitting the fan before the council elections so expect at least something to get done to alleviate the problem and not just for folk on benefits. If it doesn't then expect Boris to be wondering if that wallpaper was a good buy and later for the red flag to be flyng over Number 10.


It's a difficult one but I'm sure other countries have got their thinking caps on too..

I've no idea why my writing has suddenly become miniaturised!

But it's normal when I post..Go figure.. [2040]


The fuel bills are worrying, it's not as though we can all work overtime to get a few extra bob at the end of the month.  :rolleyes:

What does this mean? Has something gone odd with the forum? If you have swapped to the WYSIWYG editor then the default font size on that is smaller. If it is a problem I can probably change that. In fact I will now but you will probably need to flush your browser cache to see the change.

OK I have increased the font size on the WYSIWYG editor and it is now the same as I enlarged it to for everything else way back. If that was your problem and you don't see the change flush your browser cache.


so if the tools of your trade were either a banjo. or a shovel, how might this 'flush' be done... :Help:


Just as most car problems can be fixed with the use of a tiny plastic card most technology issues can be fixed with a little typing. Usually into Google. In this case I've done that so all you need to do is click and read...


you will be rewarded in heaven as will Zoony for getting Mcdonalds food banks.... :wtf:


I've always thought food bank collection points should be in the middle of the store and not at the exit.  When I'm on my way out of the shop, all the items in the trolley are from my list, so I'm unlikely to put any of them in the food bank box.  If the bank was in the middle of the store, it would be easy to grab a couple of items off the shelf .


If the food bank was in the middle of the store and not at the exit.. People would just be chucking stuff in while shopping.. !!
So when would they pay for it.. !! :nooo:
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..


Good point !  then at least have some signs in the middle of the shop reminding folk about the food bank donations crate.
