Re: Internet / Broadband

Have been working on Vodafone 500mb fibre broadband for the past month. Def better than virgin media who seem to have contention issues now. Anyway...bottom line Vodafone 35 euro per month for 500mb broadband and landline phone ( I don't use it) The reduced cost plus having an alternative option to ...

Working from home - help topic

Hi folks, just thought that this topic page might help others ask questions and people replie with answers. The first casualty of working from home was the wifi card on the wife's Microsoft surface device ( yeah I know rubbish device all IT folk advise companies to steer clear from) went kaput. So s...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

Trying to ram it down anyone's throat with non examples is hypocritical. Assuming someone else has not experienced any of the actions or types of events being highlighted is a huge mistake...arrogance or whatever this is it falls into the category being complained about. No one can debate unyielding...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

Sorry chaps I can't really participate in this discussion any further as I feel it's based on subjective opinion that is completely devoid of reality and actuality in my opinion...and to be honest, even smacks of the manipulative/dogmatism that is purported to be toxic masculinity and I'm finding a ...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

Ok Skip I have to ask, are you referring to an actual individual you knew and their traits? In all honesty I cant see these nasty or bad mannered traits really validly existing in society in the manner you suggest. Also such nasty traits are not exclusive to the male gender., so from all your posts ...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

I still don't see it as any actual branch of bullying...it is a term obviously created to label something but let's face it , this is not widespread thing. It's not even an occasional occurrence. Outside of schoolyard. I believe it can be addressed by having manners and proper behaviour/etiquette ta...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

Hi skip , yes I've seen or encountered many of these but I still don't believe this is confined into one category as the term toxic masculinity would depict. It's across all genders and the kind of hehaviour you highlight is bullying. There it is when people cannot leave as they are Ina relationship...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

Hi Skip, yes agree with all of that ... but it applies all genders not just masculinity... so maybe a bit sexist even having that label!! I know you didn't invent it! Masculinity is equated with being strong and stoic. These are just two traditional traits of many. These traits are not those of a to...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

Sorry skip. I just don't 'get that' at all. As in I really cannot see how such a scenario could exist in real life or at least other than very isolated or sparse incidents.... I could see this happening in schoolyards though. Your examples such as why old people are lonely/on their own, plus women f...

Re: Toxic Masculinity - Men's Social?

It's a bit like a modern day version of bullying then. This is not something that pertains only to the male gender. I hark back again to manners - within which, consideration for others is a major aspect. This country used to be fantastic for helping and considering others and engenderi people to ha...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Hi all, We recently bought in the Court. Noticing a bit of chat about a gate walkway down by Beverton/Ballisk and got me thinking - is there a route to the train station/village that doesn't entail walking out onto Turvey Road? Just trying to find out walk times etc I have estimated (based on Googl...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Not sure if it's an operation transformation thing, but have had two weeks in a row now that a squad of ladies (only I think...no males) are running around the new oval green at back of Beresford estate. The running is fine but it's what seems to be their trainer,coach who is roaring encouragement a...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

While it doesn't affect my house, a friend of mine that isn't long in one of the new houses is starting to have issues with that white lime residue on his brickwork. Any new buyers should prob insist on a guarantee before signing from Hora that in the event of their brickwork developing any similar ...

Thanks
I think it's Fleetwood paint they use...could be wrong. (Maybe colourtrend).
Either way it's a choice of three colours !!!
