    If I do answer the door, not realising that the person or people are on a 'spreading the word' mission, I'm always polite (because I expect they get enough verbal abuse from people), and I do tell them that I have my own religion, and wish them a good day. They mostly accept that and bid me a good day and leave.

    Re: "The Friendly Café - Open for chinwaggin'

    I received an email this morning which I will not reply to. The person knows who I'm referring to, as I discounted her as a friend a long time ago after she was particularly nasty to me in an email. I do not need that sort of communication. I haven't the foggiest idea what this person has in mind - why she sent that email, which contained a copy of various posts on FG from quite a long time ago.

    However, if you are reading this, Mrs L, please do not send any more emails. I know you can read the threads but as a banned person you are unable to post anything. It surprises me that you have this obsession about Forum Garden. Do you not realise that your business with this forum is finished and you will never be allowed back into FG. I suggest you concentrate on finding another forum to get involved with, unless of course, you have been banned from all of them !!!

    I wish you no harm, so do take care.

    .
    Some telemarketers are damn pushy they never take no for an answer!

    Last night this guy calls looking for a sizeable donation for his organization, I tell him
    I'm sorry money is tight right now and I won't be able to make any contribution.

    He then cuts his donation request in half, and says when can I send that?
    I again said sorry, I can't send anything, so then he says . . .

    and so I just hung up on him!

    Re: "The Friendly Café - Open for chinwaggin'

    Cars, I just say "Not today thank you." and I tell them to cross/delete my number from their records. Even though I am listed on the Telephone Preference, I still get the odd call over time. I'm usually polite, tell them 'NO' and put the phone down. It is strange though, that any such calls come on my mobile phone, even though I have that on the Telephone Preference like our house landline. Oh well.

    Re: "The Friendly Café - Open for chinwaggin'

    It's too darned hot here, at the moment. It is very sapping to my poor owd body, but it's good weather for drying washed clothes ! We're informed that the heat will go on next week as well, and maybe the week after that. I feel sorry for the people up in Manchester where they have wild fires on Saddleworth Moor. So far 50 people have had to be evacuated ! The army is on 'standby' to boost up the firebrigade, so let's hope that more people don't have to leave their homes.

    I just bet those wild fires were started deliberately ! If that is so, I hope the police catch the insane idiots and give them a proper memorable punishment.

    Hot. you say? It is supposed to reach 116 today in our California desert. Fortunately for me I am on vacation in green, lush Pittsburgh where we have been having record rainfall and much flooding, with streets and hillsides collapsing. I wish we could send some of this rain to California and Colorado to put out the fires

    There you go again, Zap ! I knew you were part gypsy ! I trust you are making the most of your time in Pittsburgh, despite the masses of precipitation from the rain laden skies. Ahum, perhaps you could set aside some of that wet stuff you are wishing for California and Colorado, and wish for some of it to drench UK land. It would indeed be very helpful to us over the pond here !

    I hope you are not complaining about the wet in Pittsburgh ! You have always said that one of the best feelings for you is to stand outside while it rains on you.

    .

    Hot is the word alright! The weather here in NE for the past two weeks has been "unusually" Hot & Humid! With temps in the "90's", and worst of all with 75 to mid 80 % Humidity!!
    Very similar to the weather in Florida! Air quality is considered as "oppressive!

    "Global warming" is a real thing, (some say no, but . . . ) as the weather all over the world seems to be out of whack!

    It is strange to be suffering with mid-to-high-nineties, and then to realize that we are actually having a relatively mild summer compared to much of the rest of the country.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.
