Thanks for all your suggestions and help. Unfortunately the good old Brit passport picture is more face and not much background. For the L1 visa you need more head and shoulders and some background. Found there is a Max Spielman's in Salford City shopping centre who said they can do it.

Tenancy up end of June, closure on sale of house end of March. Been told now that I have to give a month's notice and must leave end of June. This could entail paying two lots of rent unless I can come to some agreement with the new owner.

The other day I posted a picture of a lamb with his head poking through a cat flap. We really enjoy seeing this young chap eating our grass ( not so much SWMBO's flowers though ) but alas we have just heard that he will be leaving us on Monday. His owner has ordered his young daughter to move this lamb into a paddock with their other sheep. These sheep do not like this lamb and there has been a problem in the past but the owner insists so as you might guess there are now 3 unhappy human females. The mans wife and young daughter plus SWMBO.

Hope this is boring enough

I'm not sure that's right, laser. When someone buys a property they take on whatever agreement you currently have. This means that once the sale is finalised, you then pay rent to the new owners as the old ones no longer have anything to do with it and they certainly can not collect rent from you for a property they do not own. May I ask who on earth suggested to you that you might have to pay TWO lots of rent? The terms of your tenancy do NOT change ... the only thing that changes is the identity of your landlord.

Found this website laser ... basically confirms what I said and gives further very useful information. If you are looking for a new place, owners are often amenable to waiting a while if they know a previous tenancy agreement has to be completed. (I think I misunderstood your post about the two lots of rent thing,) Check out this website anyway, it's a very useful one. House renters

Eighty years ago today the Spitfire prototype made its first flight...

On the evening of March 5 1936, Captain Joseph ‘Mutt’ Summers - chief test pilot at Supermarine’s parent company Vickers-Armstrongs - took off in the Type 300 K5054 prototype for an eight minute flight from Eastleigh airfield in Hampshire.
No apologies whatsoever for aviation content

Good morning all. China and Taiwan already this morning. Thought they had weekends too!!

Thanks Bluey, rang up my agent yesterday. The new owner should close end of this month. I was hoping to be out about end of April, but apparently I have to stay until my agreement finishes end of June. But if I get my visa I won't be here so would have to move out early. So would have to pay rent here until end of June and also on new place. That is if the new owner might change his mind. The alternative is to move out and if I get my visa put stuff in storage and stay somewhere until I go back US.

Morning peeps,this new medication is playing havock wi me mid region gooy bits felt nausious all night, will have to figure out what does which and space em out over the day instead of swallowing em all at once morning and night.
Begining to sound like me raving hypocondric neighbour over the road who's sole topic of conversation is his various ills ops and treatments he has experienced done by his apprently pet proffessor,he was deeply shocked when I told him I hadn't a clue who the Doctor /Professor Consultant/Surgeon was who did the biz on me just a bod in green kit wi a stethoscope I said.

Tiz my philosophy that a good fettler just appears opens his tool box does the biz then walks off into the sunset anonymously.

Here we are again.
Cloudy, +2C but forecast for better things.
Left untouched by the snow malarkey but I believe Lancashire and Yorkshire hogged it all.

Fallen victim to the dreaded snuffles.
Roll on Summer.

Besides waiting a date for a replacement knee, the medics say I have an over abundance of iron in my blood. However as I will loose a fair amount of blood during the knee operation, the iron problem has been deferred.

Goodness, l@ser!! That's always the sort of thing one faces when renting though. I live in dread of a letter from the agent saying this place is to be sold and am always very relieved when it's just to advise me of the next inspection date (at fairly regular 3 month intervals).

Ibbie, I've heard of that before ... a friend of my former husband had that "extra iron" problem. He used to need regular visits from the vampires.

I had the iron problem about 12 months ago Ibbie.
Lots of blood test later and various consultants and it was decided that in my
case it was due to my failing kidneys so they all lost interest.
My last lot of blood test results show my iron is now back to normal.
Why ?? No idea.
