Very warm welcome indeed, Farelli, hope you’ll love this members community as much as we all do 👍👍👍👍
Hey. I'm Sammy fae Edinburgh. In a couple hours time my Electricity goes live with PP, and my Gas will follow in a few weeks.

After switching from Our Power I'm delighted to have found another supplier with solid green credentials. I fully support renewables, and I am more than proud of Scotland's successfull approach to Solar, Wind, Tidal and Hydro generation. Finding PP and signing up was a no brainer. 🙂

Hi Vanitarium,

You've got some great interests and look forward to your posts.

I feel I've missed out.....in the past spent many 1 week breaks leaving London to tour the highlands.
Usually around March experiencing all seasonal weathers and sometimes on the same day.

Whilst acknowledging the concepts of any business hoping to make a profit, that says a lot about the key intentions of the major energy suppliers in the uk.
Hi.
I'm Mark (my mother didn't like the 'c' version, sorry about that.)

Unlike the other Marc, you aren't going to get a photo of my ugly mug.

Instead, I will shortly add some photos of my cats.

Hello Mark,

Welcome to the community.....you will get lots of support, feedback and assistance from many customer members like ourselves.

I noticed your first post and guess that you have already had a gander through the FaQ's in regard the current Meter programme etc.

Sorry i'm being too formal and look forward to seeing your posts and photographs.

Happy Easter

Hi Strutt G.

Actually, to be honest, I haven't had much of a gander through the FAQ's yet. I messaged 'Belle' via Facebook before I signed up. Belle sent me this link, but the thread was closed.
(Is it me, or does the 'link' not show up as being a parsed link?)

So I did some searching, and found the other thread discussing Smart Meters.

I thought I had better not mention my current supplier, just in case.

Happy Easter to you. I don't mind 'formal'.

Hi woz.

Apologies for the slow upload of cat photos, for some reason I cannot get the uploader to allow me to add more than one from my phone.
This makes me feel particularly idiotic, as although my 'day job' is caring for my wife, I used to be an Admin on a vB board.

​Anyway, we have three cats: We have Bluebell, and Gemini, they are brother and sister, and will be 2 years old tomorrow This is Bluebell.

This is his sister Gemini.


This is Aristotle, we call him 'Arry, as the local kids could not say 'Aristotle. He is approximately 18 years old, we don't know for sure, as we took him in when his second 'servant' was moving home.
His favourite 'spot' is in front of my computer monitor, which is part of my I rarely use my PC now.


It's odd, our last 4 cats have been a combination of Black and White, yet we never actually picked any of them like that. The first one, who was White and Black, was one of a pair of cats Kate's parent took in, and she 'claimed' Kate as her own.

Aristotle we gained from someone nearby when they were moving to Pembrokeshire.

Bluebell and Gemini were two of a litter of six my friend's cat had.

hi Mark
I don't think it's possible to add more than one photo at a time, or at least I haven't been able to.
It's never been a problem although it's a worthwhile suggestion for @Marc to put on the to-do list.

Is the sister cat longer haired than her sibling or is it the photo that makes it seem that way?

By the way there is a section in the community for pet photos, not that it matters, cats are welcome anywhere as far as I'm concerned...

Black and white cats are cheaper to watch, you don't have to get a colour licence...

I managed to upload 3, individually, using my PC, but on my phone it gave the impression that each new upload was replacing the last one?


woz;28039:

Gemini has much longer hair than Bluebell, which means she tends to bring in all sorts of rubbish in her fur, on the bright side, she is much better behaved than her brother.

Oh dear, noob mistake, I saw Marc's intro post and thought they were an expected part of the 'Hello!' - I'll wait and see if Marc tells me off, and moves the photos.

Bluebell isn't unfortunately, watching often seems to involve him attacking our furniture, despite the number of cat scratching posts, and the trees outside - I mean seriously, there's a tree barely 10 feet from the front door, and a field full of them outside the bedroom.

I rarely post photos from phone, usually on laptop I'll try it...

​What fun is it using a scratching post when you have furniture and carpets to ruin?

hi Mark
I just tried 2 photos from phone- each has to be uploaded one at a time i.e chose file, then upload - but it worked ok.

Welcome to the community @Gwyndy :D
We can't have too many cat photos here IMHO.
Wonderful pics you've posted!
