Important: We noticed unusual activity in your PayPal account (Ref #PP-823-636-935-323)

Have you had this e-mail?

“Important: We noticed unusual activity in your PayPal account (Ref #PP-823-636-935-323)”

eBay as many know was recently hacked. This resulted in passwords and personal data being accessed. This means scammers now have access to your name and email address that relate to your Paypal account.

If you use the same password on Paypal as eBay, they have access to your Paypal account as well.

If you haven’t done so already, change your eBay password. If your Paypal one is the same, change that too! 

On this e-mail, careful examination reveals it actually claims to come from this address:… Click here to continue reading this article

Range Rover Sport Dash Non-Slip Mat fits under Sat Nav – No More Flying Keys!

Looking for a Range Rover Sport Dash non-slip mat fits under the Sat Nav?

You are in the right place (USA, Australia, NZ and Canada readers see >here< instead).

Range Rover Sport models produced between 2005 and 2009 don’t have too much storage space in the cabin. So one must utilise every little bit of space in there!

Under the navigation screen is a little shelf. That little shelf is normally smooth, which means if you put anything on it, it comes flying off.

Does Mental Decay Start in Your 40’s?

Funny tale [well, I thought so anyway].

Years ago, I used to have a Merc van business [sales, service, repair, dismantling – the usual]. We closed it in 98 and moved on to other things. Since then we moved into Dyson vacuums. Identical business model in many respects [dismantling, parts, sales, service, repair], but smaller, lighter things one can work on indoors, by the fire, and use screwdrivers with instead of working outdoors using air tools in January [we are all in our 40’s now after all – all that spanner work at -5c should be long gone].… Click here to continue reading this article

Ukraine: So What is Vladimir Putin Really Planning?

Unlike most westerners, I do not blindly believe western media, I do not subscribe to the “America good – Russia bad” media hysteria being shamelessly stage-managed by our governments.

Perhaps having a Russian-born wife makes me take a more balanced view.

I am not anti-Russian, I am not anti-Putin. Nor am I anti-American. I might be anti-EU, if voting for Nigel Farrage labels me that.

However, I am very interested in the whole Ukraine and Russia situation.

We had a guest post here recently by the former Soviet Union resident commentator Andrew Wilson entitled Ukraine and American News Propaganda Fed to the Sheeple.… Click here to continue reading this article
