Argos remove catalogues from stores to "test demand"



"Sheena Hendry said it was "astonishing" that there were no catalogues to pick up from an Argos in the Highland capital.
In a message to the business on Facebook, she said she was disappointed that there appeared to be plans to phase them out.
She said: "Do you even realise how many hours of peace and quiet that catalogue gives to parents of young children who sit flicking through the toy section?"

Kudos to Private Eye,mentioning the VAT on payroll for sick/disabled employers in the direct payment scheme.You are supposedly not to be so charged in welfare provision.Tribunal later this year with HMRC arguing their hands are tied as to current rules for exemption.

When my younger daughter got a badge making thing as a present, the first thing she did was make four badges as a present for her big sister...

  1. Hello
  2. My name is Inigo Monoya
  3. You killed my father
  4. Prepare to die

They were both appalled at the number of people who didn't get the reference.

I know that refitman has provided some excellent instructions, but it's too late and I'm too tired to master a new thingy! I'll try to grasp it tomorrow.

You only paste the bit after the 'v=' in the youtube url, inbetween the two 'youtube' code brackets. [youtube][/youtube]

There's no "v=", though. In true British fashion, there's a "q" . . .

Are you trying to post the url to the YouTube search results page rather than the url of the page with the actual clip?
