Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 3rd March 2018

I've said before and will say it again, I can see no earthly reason why people object to ID Cards.  The Liberals state that it 'Infringes our Liberty' - that's a joke.  So much information is held about us every which way that to have an ID would save a lot of time and might even prevent areas like  illegal immigration and health tourism for starters.

As I'm moving home, I have to change Utilities - and though I do not like working "Online' in these times it is considerably quicker than trying to contact  a person by phone.  You wait for anything from 5 - 30 minutes and are hit with 99 options????

So today I tackled Southern Water - and all went reasonably well.  Some questions I couldn't answer like Who lived at the address beforehand - the building is new so the answer is No-one but there's nowhere to give that reply.

But when I got to the end and saw the Privacy policy highlighted in Blue, I clicked on it and was absolutely staggered to see with whom Southern Water could share my details. AND THERE WAS NO WAY OF OPTING OUT - or if there were, I couldn't find it.  So now I could be flooded with people selling me things etc. and so forth.  

Here's the list - to which I couldn't press any Opt Out button.  When I clicked on the arrows all they showed me was a more comprehensive explanation of the subject.  So it appears I AGREE because I could find nowhere to Opt out.

I'm not that adept at technology so if I have mis-understood, I will apologize in advance. But I do not want to enter any competitions, receive Ads for products etc. and so forth ...........
