Nothing to stop you going to a different one if you really want to.
What does dialling 112 connect you to?
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

I've totally ruled out St.J's now. But I don't know which one to go to. Then there is my wife to get past.

The same place as dialling 999. 112 works EU-wide.
The world's unluckiest piano learner, quite possibly.

One of my greatest gripes with Youtube is that - okay it has to use advertising but why are those advertisements totally irrelevant to what we're watching? I watch a lot of African 'beat' music videos and world music videos and yet they're always preceded by some silly and un-artistic chart album by some overpaid pop star whom I've never heard of or have no wish to hear about due to conflicting interests? And which are voiced over by the annoying smug voice of Mark Goodier? Watch an arts video, get an advert for a West End show or new Naxos/Hyperion/Deutsche Gram release. Or maybe M&S?

Also the 'recommended for you' channels are quite farcical. A recording of Eric Coates' charming 'By the Sleepy Lagoon' has absolutely nothing to do with Enoch Powell's infamous 1968 speech, so why do Youtube think it does?? Puzzling.

Had my dual fuel bill today. £440. It was £84 dearer than my winter (January) fuel bill oddly enough but that was also the case last year. I think the one to fear now is the April one, not January.

I'm expecting my BT bill at the end of the month (usually around £140). Why, oh why are we mere slaves to these mighty communications giants? (my wife just looks at me and shrugs her shoulders when I ask her).
