  1. Hi Nice to know everything is ok. We actually do both the 3/4" Ali frame and the solid hardwood. Both have their uses. Stopping a tree crushing you should not really be put on the list if at all possible! Again glad you are ok.
  2. Hi, Just a quick two part question. We've started a new embroidery service to add that little something to our boat covers. We are embroidering boat names and logos but Sod's law, the second customer has created a question for us!! ( not that we mind, I just want to get it right) They have asked us to embroider the Canal and river trust logo along with his boat number on to the canopy. My question is , A. Are we allowed to use the logo ( I assume so as its freely painted on a lot of boats). Part two of the question, Is there a standard ( almost legal) font and font size for the numbers. I think the answers are fairly obvious, as in It's fine to use logo and and font is ok as long as it's clear. But I just want to check before we put needle to canvas. The job is due out on Thursday so I would appreciate any 'Useful' feedback. Many Thanks Ian
  3. That one isn't but we do have another one available.. send a CV and contact details
  4. Must be the same for all us Brits. I started watching about that time. Dan Marino, Walter Payton, William Perry, Jo Montana, John Elway all big names in the day. I think they had a big push on it then. Channel 4 used to do some good coverage.
  5. @LadyG In my opinion It's not spam, I needed help! I didn't actually post the picture of the page up. I put the post in the Pub instead of general boating so as not to spam. Thankfully the nice people here have been actually helping me. I'm also quite impressed with myself for correcting the issues and adding other bits and it's nice to know if they are working across all the platforms and viewers. The only way to do this is to ask a large amount of people to check. So spam off But thanks for showing my offers page again
  6. I've got so much computer based work to do today so am easily getting distracted by the forum.. Questions. Any of you folks American football fans? Will you be watching the super bowl? What's your favourite team? Have you ever seen a real game live? etc etc. Discuss. Oh, I'm a Chicago Bears fan. It's our time next year!!
  7. This Is my all time favourite joke, Keeps you hanging on right to the end. Happy FRIDAY Aer Lingus Flight 101 was flying from Heathrow to Dublin one night, with Paddy the Pilot, and Shamus the co-pilot. As they approached Dublin airport, they looked out the front window. "B'jeesus," said Paddy "Will ye look at how fookin short dat runway is." "You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy" replied Shamus. "Dis is gonna be one a' de trickiest landings you're ever gonna see," said Paddy. "You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy." replied Shamus. "Right Shamus. When I give de signal, you put de engines in reverse" said Paddy. "Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus. "And den ye put de flaps down straight away" said Paddy. "Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus. "And den ye stamp on dem brakes as hard as ye can" said Paddy. "Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus. "And den ye pray to de Mother Mary with all a' your soul" said Paddy. "I be doing dat already" replied Shamus. So they approached the runway with Paddy and Shamus full of nerves and sweaty palms. As soon as the wheels hit the ground, Shamus put the engines in reverse, put the flaps down, stamped on the brakes and prayed to Mother Mary with all of his soul. Amidst roaring engines, squealing of tyres and lots of smoke, the plane screeched to a halt centimetres from the end of the runway, much to the relief of Paddy and Shamus and everyone on board. As they sat in the cockpit regaining their composure, Paddy looked out the front window and said to Shamus "Dat has gotta be de shortest fookin runway I have EVER seen in me whole life". Shamus looked out the side window and replied "Yeah Paddy, but look how fookin wide it is".
  8. Hi, Thank you so much for continuing to look, Think I've now fixed that.... and got carried away and added a countdown timer for the offers. Any other suggestions for the site people have, I'm happy to try
  9. Hi thanks for looking. Think I may of sorted the out of date bit now. If you get 2 seconds could you look again, many thanks. HI All. Thanks. Think I've finally sorted it all out, Even made a new website page
  10. My Mom was the same for the first few weeks.. They eventually forget about it, usually when something slightly more interesting happens, like Doris down the road is having a new front door fitted!
  11. Thanks Bruce, I just need to get the use coupon button to send you to the order form. Oh I now can't stop Humming "uh wimoweh, uh wimoweh" Nice advert as well. Glad you put the photo on and not me Feel free to share it, Nudge ,nudge, wink , wink say no moooore!
  12. As was this post ? I don't know, it's a yell based website tool. You give the postcode. Hi thanks for looking. Think I may of sorted the out of date bit now. If you get 2 seconds could you look again, many thanks.
  13. Oh, well that is a bit of a let down. ;(
  14. Hello, Just a quickie. I've just been playing with our website adding offer popups. I'm trying to get a special one pop up if you log in from Mercia marina Willington. Is there anyone online in Mercia at the mo that can check to see if it's worked. You'll know if you get the right thing pop up because it mentions Mercia marina. Cheers. I might cry if it doesn't work, my head is hurting, too much I.T. !!!! Oh also trying to get buttons to appear so the offers can be shared on social media, not sure if they are working at all. Is there a way that anyone knows that I can make my computer think it's in Mercia? I can use a VPN to show it in America but that's not really a help!! Hair ripping out 101.
  15. Can't do that the Rj45 terminals are all by Vicki's... I get the plotter and cutter by mine.
  16. Right think I've got it!!!! "Thanks for calling kinver Canopies. Some of our calls may be recorded for training purposes. Please press 1. To speak to the person (normally vicki) who is nearest the card machine and can take your payment. 2.To speak to Ian who is stuck in the corner or 3. To try to speak with Scott who is probably out at a marina so you'll get stuck in a loop and eventually speak to Ian or Vicki. Alternatively please send an email to [email protected] and he'll endevour to reply, although at the moment he is trying to deal with a list of people phoning for Scott or trying to make payments as Vicki is not at work on Fridays." BEEEEEEP
  17. Yep, they set up a night service. Oh, yes I like speak to... you know you'll get human
  18. So, we've just had a new VOIP system. Quick question to gauge an overall feeling. In general what do people prefer A message that says A. Hello thanks for calling Blarr, Please Press 1. FOR CARD PAYMENTS (sounds like we are a large company and you go to a separate part of the company, in reality it only makes the phone nearest the card machine ring so we don't have to stretch the cable ) Press 2 FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE B. Hello thanks for calling Blarr, Please Press 1. FOR CARD PAYMENTS or hold FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE C. Hello thanks for calling Blarr, Please hold to be connected. Our phone providers have said by having the button number selection (A. and B.) at the beginning it stops a lot of cold calling ( we get a lot, sometimes the same person 3 times a day) as they hang up as soon as they hear it. But we are not sure if we like it. Your thoughts please
  19. "I think they hand out a free pillow per referral, if that is the case, I think it should have been mentioned by the OP" The OP would of if he 1.Knew he did,or 2.If he thought it would make a blind bit of difference to anyone's life in any way shape or form. they just said I'd get a 'thanks, also' I don't need another pillow, I've only got one head! I was only trying to be helpful as I know the Simbas are expensive and I spent ages looking for a discount code. "I am rather wary of the Simba T&C "friend referral" strategy. I really don't give out my email to all and sundry for them to use for their marketing purposes." They already had my email for the order information. "It's quite put me off the Simba mattress," Why on earth would the fact you can (shock announcement ? )get a free Pillow! or £50 off put you off and fantastically made product with great reviews and it has to be said, great marketing? Anyway. Small dissection of post over, I'm going for a lie down
  20. Yep, we toyed with the idea for ages... it's a lot of money. But well worth it.
  21. Right. Nothing much to do with boating life here but I'm trying to be helpful. In case any of you folk were thinking of buying a Simba mattress I've just been sent a link for £50 off. I know we all like to save a few pennies where possible after Christmas. I think you can use it as much as you want. Feel free to share. https://simba.mention-me.com/m/ode/nw0vc-ian-underwood if asked the email i used was [email protected] oh, I can also confirm my back feels soooooo much better and my nights sleep are great... takes a couple of sleeps to get used to it but after that its amazing.
