My bad, you need to change your flag then, it says Ireland, not England.

On My mom's side I'm of English descent, though I don't know much about that side.

I can drive a 7.5 tonner box van on a car licence. I did many years ago when I moved house myself.
You got that due to "grandfather rights" when they changed the licensing laws in the early 80's. Until then, the HGV license was a separate "little red book" IIRC that covered HGV 3 -4 ton & above, HGV 2 -10 ton & above & HGV 1. They all got merged into the one license with the various categories on it. HGV 3 ceased to exist, but pre Jan 1 1997 all full license holders were permitted to drive up to 7.5 ton.

Since that date, a separate C1 test is required for 7.5 ton.

Sadly no, only just turned 4 at the time, so not strong enough to lift it let alone carry it. :-(

Talking of gold. The National Lottery helped greatly over the years. This year is its 25th anniversary, so maybe...
...keep your fingers crossed.

I rarely make promises, but when I have I've kept them.

TBH Vic, there are times when you royally p me off. However, I know just how hard It can be to dig oneself out of a hole.

As long as I'm alive & lucky enough, it would be nice to keep that promise. Just bear In mind that you have to start really helping yourself.

Just keep them crossed as 5+ bonus ball now guarantees £1,000,000. :-)

Had quite a few 5's over the years, but 5+1 would be great.

63 the month before. My weekly spend on the lottery is £3.00
£2.00 for one lucky dip ticket on the main one.
£1.00 for a lucky dip on Hot pick 2. (£60 if it comes up).

Each year that there are wins, the winnings go into the lottery kitty for the year (£156.00).
Anything won over the years total cost goes into savings. :-)

Looking back on my lotto spreadsheet, due a biggie, so keep your fingers crossed.

Latching those 3 windows completely, made My gas furnace run less, instead of 12mins, it's now 3mins, of course this is the daytime, so that should eventually drop My gas bill.

There are two "observations" that seem to stand out to me. Firstly that is a very generous and kind offer from Sirius to Vic of a share of any future winnings. But also it is a carrot being dangled as an incentive upon the basis that it would only happen if Vic started to become sensible about his finances. An offer of a win/win situation if you like. But what I fear is that knowing Vic he won't quite look at it like that.

Judging by his response to the SNAP payments in June or August, he has already decided in his own mind that he is going to get them at the published rate, when he can't even apply for them yet and he won't know until then what if anything he will get. It's the same with some Bill that might get passed in 4 years time when we don't know which political party will be in power or even who the President will be. But in Vics mind he is already allowing for that to happen. It's not his fault, clutching at straws and mere possibilities is the only way he knows how to live.

It could be the same with Sirius's offer in that he will bank on it happening and think OK, he's promised he will bail me out in the future, which he thinks won't be that far away, so I don't have to try too hard to economise in the meantime do I. And judging by his inheritance that he blew, it wouldn't make that much difference to his life anyway in the long term, easy come easy go.

The other observation is this latest business of latching 3 windows. Have things now got to the stage where he can't even be trusted to shut the windows in his own home properly? If so then I think Vic at age 59 this year has reached a crossroads, in that just how feasible or sensible is it for him to continue to live on his own. It's becoming more and more clear, to me at least, that he needs some sort of assisted living. But being America it won't happen until he holds his hand up and asks. Or he ends up in court for non-payment of debt and questions get asked how he got in that state. Your guess as to which might happen first.

Someone called Scruff popped in recently after a years absence and seemed quite surprised that nothing had changed, same old, same old. Sometimes a fresh outside view cuts through the fog.

No unwanted advice being offered, no criticism, just observations.

So you think I won't get them? Other people in other states who get SSI get SNAP, didn't you read what was posted? Or do you think it's a lie?

I did get an email on this.

AB1811 is not a bill in Congress, it's a State Law that was already signed by by the Governor in 2018, since you don't know much I thought I'd fill a hole in your knowledge, and the state legislature is Dominated by Democratic Party Members.

Chaptered = Signed into California State Law.

REFERENCE:
ASSEMBLY BILL (AB)1811 (CHAPTER 35, STATUTES OF 2018)

As to the 3 windows, you don't know why they were not latched and they are sliding windows behind blinds...

1 was unlatched behind a couple pieces of cardboard and the blinds, the other 2 windows were only partly latched and behind blinds.

SNAP...
The way the regulations are written is designed to confuse the average humon.
The worst case is one could loose SSI and only get SNAP.
The regs are in place, but ones entry date into the scheme is far from clear, do you apply a month ahead of the SSI review date, or the month after
Regs written in typical beureaxease.

[ Approved by Governor June 27, 2018. Filed with Secretary of State June 27, 2018. ]


This bill would repeal SSP payment reductions for purposes of CalFresh eligibility, and would grant CalFresh eligibility, as specified, to recipients of SSI, SSP, or both as of June 1, 2019, or an alternate implementation date determined by the department that is no later than August 1, 2019. The bill would require a county welfare department to determine continuing eligibility and benefits for households, as specified. By imposing requirements on counties relative to CalFresh, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
This bill would establish the SSI/SSP Cash-In Supplemental Nutrition Benefit (SNB) Program to provide nutrition benefits to a CalFresh household that had its benefits reduced when a previously excluded SSI or SSP recipient was added to the household under the new eligibility provisions. The bill would also establish the SSI/SSP Cash-In Transitional Nutrition Benefit (TNB) Program to provide nutrition benefits to a CalFresh household that became ineligible when a previously excluded SSI or SSP recipient was added to the household under the new eligibility provisions. The bill would provide that the SNB and TNB program benefits would be granted only to the extent funding is appropriated in the annual Budget Act. The bill would make conforming changes to related provisions, as specified.

By the time I'm 62 I might have enough income to pull this off, there is the possibility of having enough income then as there is a bill that would if passed and signed into law would give Me a much better income(125% of poverty at the very least, instead of what I have now), though I would still not be getting rich, if not well I have the place I live in now and I have no mortgage or loan on it.

Perhaps it would help if you were to clarify just which bill you were referring to in your post above.

This Bill is valid from now until the end of the 116th Congress and had a Prior version, this version has 203 backers, 204 if you include the author, currently the US House of Representatives has 235 Democratic Lawmakers.

Congress does not have anything to do with passing or approving of State Laws in the the US from the 50 States.

No unwanted advice being offered, no criticism, just observations.

All you do is criticize. You are one destructive person dude!!!! I suggest you keep your opinions and criticism to yourself if you won't be a little more kinder to Vic.

[edit]
One other thing, we ALL know what your feelings are about Vic. You do not need to keep beating that dead horse. Lay off will ya?

There are two "observations" that seem to stand out to me. Firstly that is a very generous and kind offer from Sirius to Vic of a share of any future winnings.
For such a diehard Englishman, you have a difficult time in comprehending your own language. I'm not going to point out your error, but will tell you to go back & read all the posts concerned.

@Vic. No luck this weekend. However, over the past several weeks, I have noticed something about the lottery. Some months ago, I had 4 numbers which paid out £103.00. Last month had 5 paying £1,750.00

It seems that all prizes except the jackpot are now fixed levels.
3 = £30
4=£140
5=£1750
5/6+ =£1,000,000 (3 lucky winners yesterday btw - No, I'm not one of them. For the 1st time in a very long time, got no numbers at all).
6=jackpot.

The days of winning various "nice" amounts for 5 numbers seems to be over. :-( Still £1,750 is not to be ignored.

Don't worry about the lack of luck, sometimes one has it, sometimes one does not.

Yeah $2,256.52 not to be ignored, yeah I looked it up.
