In my view the Brits have nothing to be proud about regarding learning foreign languages. The clusters of Brits living in Spain for 20 years and cant speak a word of Spanish is an example...........

iPad...am I the problem?
The positive thing I have to say about Apple is that I took my wife's iPad 2 into Apple believing that it needed a new battery (was only holding a full charge for a day and its about 4 years old). The technician said that he will take it out the back to check it and if it needed a new battery they would give her a brand new iPad in return rather than replace the batt - all for 70, the cost of a new battery. How many other companies would do that.

First ever photography shoot
DB, It is clear that you are not heeding the good advice which many experienced togs are giving you. We are all pointing out that weddings are not an easy thing to do especially as a beginner.

No one is saying 'don't do it', but be very cautious how a wedding can turn out. I have done weddings and fights have broken out among the guests, or all the men crossed the road and went into a pub after the church service, there was also one wedding I did where only one person turned up on the grooms side (some family dispute of some kind). So you might have a DSLR but there is so much else to a wedding than just taking photos......

If you do not have a spare Camera/Cards/Flash/Batteries with you then you will be a fool. However, I do hope it goes as well as you intend, and as I say, lets see a few images after.

PS: You will not need to register with HMRC for this wedding as you are not making any charge.

First ever photography shoot

Quote: There is a clause in this contract that goes The Bride & Groom and Photographer agree to happily cooperate and communicate to achieve the best results possible. I would recommend that the wedding photographer be provided with a helper (In cases this could be the best man) who will point out key individuals to be photographed. The photographer may also require the assistance of the best man in organizing family groups. The Bride & Groom also agree to give the photographer(s) sufficient warning of key events at the wedding to give the photographer time to prepare.

You are not listening...............................................

First ever photography shoot

Quote: Is there anything else you think I may have forgotten about and need to consider?

Yes, ARE YOU CAPABLE of providing the B&G with photos that they expect to treasure for life, or at least until the divorce......... One of the most difficult aspects of wedding photography is to get the guests in the right place at the right time, There is a trick to it...........

My advice is to go and help other professional wedding togs before you go it alone, with so little experience you are walking into a potential nightmare.

But if you insist good luck and at least let us see you efforts..

PS: In looking at your PF. I'm afraid its pretty basic and you are gonna have to do so much better than that if your wedding shots are to be of any satisfaction.

Travelling from the US to the British Isles in May
Ireland would be essential if you had more time. To get the best you would need to travel to the West Coast and see Galway, the Cliffs of Moher and the Dingle Peninsula - but that's for another time altogether. Take a browse through the landscape images of the UK on this site

Travelling from the US to the British Isles in May
The Scottish Highlands, The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Wales, Peak District ...... the list is as long as your arm. One of the benefits of visiting the UK is that we have so many beautiful and interesting places to see and visit all within a days drive.....

I recommend this travel guide

UK Travel Guide


Quote: ...it takes an age to get from one place to another, so it may be best concentrate on Scotand

Certainly not, the UK has a good motorway and road system and most places can be reached in a couple of hours drive. Of course if there is an accident or other problem things can get bad, but that happens everywhere.

2015 Budget
Well it seems not many of got a great deal out of the budget. However I think the plan is to hold the current course and bring the debt and deficit down is the right way to go. There was a little in it for savers and first time house buyers which is a good thing however in practice it wont help many first time house buyers as houses are still unaffordable for anyone earning below 50K and the reason for this is that there is no such thing as 'affordable houses' anymore anywhere..


Quote: As capto says the little people bear the brunt of it.

Err, No!, they always say that. Tax Allowance has been increased t0 10.6K with planned increases to 11K and 50K for top earners.

2015 Budget
As today will be Georges final budget under this current government I thought a topic could be quite interesting. From my point of view I don't think it will be much of a give away mainly because GB cannot afford it. It seems he might do away with inheritance tax on estates up to 1m.

I know this will turn into a battle of tory vs Labour vs Green and maybe even some of our Scottish Clan will have an input on the SNP, but its a valid discussion. So lets see..........Blush

Top Gear on a slippery slope?

Quote: Been crap for years fifth gear much better

Certainly not, the presenters of 5th Gear are rather boring and have little personality. I hate Clarkson with a venom, but 5th Gear comes no where near Top Gear as a motoring program. Clarkson is actually a reasonable journalist at times but his juvenile and insulting behaviour spoils what is not a bad program. After all would you be happy for him to marry your daughter, or when you have friends round for dinner would you want to invite him, Oooooooooooooooh NO!, he would likely insult your friends or/and make some sexist suggestion to or about your wife. No, better he goes and stays gone.

Camera Insurance

Quote: they said a camera outside the house wasn't covered (despite having maximum cover

Correct, maximum cover does not necessarily cover everything, if you want cameras etc cover under household insurance you need to specify individual items .

All my costly items such as my guns, Bows, Cameras, Bikes and my wife's jewellery etc. are all specified individually with serial numbers and costs of replacement these are classified on my schedule as "all risks " items. By doing this and identifying every item it does add to your premiums though.

So disappointed at my first wet-clean attempt

Quote: Never leave the camera without a lens

No help, I know, but prevention is the best

Great advice, I have zoom lenses on my cameras for this reason, 17-40 on one and 28-200 on my other, I very very rarely take a lens off.

I have cleaned the sensor once or twice and I found it takes several goes to get it really clean, checking it every time by taking photos of a plain white background and reviewing the image on a PC each time, repeating this process until there are no blemishes left.
