Any Druids here?

Good news for you. You're now an official religion...in the UK, anyway. You've been around since at least the Iron Age but have finally arrived.

This means you can pass the basket tax free like just like the rest of them. You can do bake sales, raffles and fund-raising festivals right out in the open with no one taking a cut of your profits. Enjoy. Happy

Anyone getting a tax break anywhere for any reason is okay by me.

I won't drone on about the Druids.

Next Witchcraft will be deductible...then O'Donnell will get elected?

Me and Kees, (now Kees_B), are being Victimised by CNET!

It was the forum changeover that did it. neither of us could log in long enough to post, so we had to re-register a new name and email and Lee, (grudgingly I believe), gave the new accounts Mod status. Devil

In my country I would only be a Doctor if I used Flax MD. I was tempted, but decided to play safe.

I would subscribe to some pretty heavy tech journals; most of them replied with free subs. Since I was DR Pruner on their sub computers, I started getting some very interesting junk mail, and offers for more heavy magazines.
So heavy I often couldn't understand the titles. Happy

The story I read said they're 'different' in that they have no supreme creator being; they worship different parts of the creation. But the British statement says 'there is enough of a Creator God in their religion to qualify them.' Seems that's a requirement to get on the taxless list.

No doubt their religious scruples will prompt them to ... Nah!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
