Re: Superstar tree surgeon reco needed to correct topping (bad!) and re-initiate growth at lower levels

Just a note to say I recently used Toby from Take a Bough to remove a birch tree in my terrace garden and was happy with the service and price.

Re: Aircon installation

I twice used a company Crystal Sigma to install a Daikin split system in two flats. The biggest problem is where to put the compressor outside that neighbors won't object (it is very quiet) and condensate drainage. Try to avoid having a pump, they are trouble. Gravity flow on the outside wall is best.

Re: If my baby is born in Kingston Hospital what will be the place of birth?' London' or 'Kingston Upon Thames'?

Re: Buying a property in sunny spain - tips?

I don't have a house in Spain, but I've been thinking about it. From my little knowledge, you need to be careful if you plan to AirBNB it out. Spain passed a rentals law to regulate short term holiday lets. This is either to protect housing for lower paid workers so the supply isn't taken up by holi...

Re: St Paul’s School

My son is at the junior school. But what I’ve observed is the 11+ boys start coming by themselves on the tube, so I imagine all the senior school boys will do it on their own.

Re: Rugby for my 5 year old

Most places have a junior RFC. My 8 yo started playing this year with H&F https://www.fulhamrugby.co.uk

They have very young kids up to adults. We play sundays at Hurlingham Park. It’s basically volunteer so maybe cost £120 for the year.

Re: Australian labradoodle. On the common

Labradoodles originated in Australia, so I think there is something in that. Supposedly, they are trying to keep it/create it as a breed instead of a cross of just a poodle and a lab. To some degree, I think it's a bit of crock as well - except that I bought one this year and he has been the most lo...

Re: Teaching kids about financial responsibiity - prepaid cards
