Re: [MH-list] ot grouply contact

KFX <kfx@...>
 

On other groups where I'm a member --anything to do with Grouply is an automatic unsubbing --its bad news all the way !
Avoid it like the plague!
First, when you join, Grouply automatically changes your primary
Yahoo email address for all the groups you belong to. If you are
currently signed up with Yahoo as joesmith@earthlink.net, you will
become joesmith@grouply.com. As far as I can tell, Grouply does this
without telling you.

Second, in order to join Grouply you must give them your Yahoo member
ID and password. This opens up a big can of identity-theft worms.

Once you do this, Grouply has access to all files and posts of the
group, so they can siphon off any information they choose.

Has anyone else been invited to become 'a friend' on Grouply by someone calling himself
'taff' without being known to them in any way other than through motorhome list (I gather)?

I'm not very comfortable about this kind of unsolicited approach from someone I don't know,
any opinions or advice?

Larry,

We spend up to 180 days away at a time. We get three months medication
before we leave and buy the rest over the counter from pharmacies where ever
we are in Europe. Never had a problem getting UK prescribed medication.

Nigel.

The supplement with the CC magazine states Sat and Sun for both Rotterdam
and Zeebrugge crossings.

I checked to see if the discount applied for late December but it was no go.

I'm planning to use some of my Tesco vouchers on a night crossing from
Harwich to Hook of Holland for the outward crossing. I'll book my return
crossing (Rotterdam-Hull) some time in June with the Caravan Club just a few
days before crossing.

Re: cruise control, is it worth it?

Reg <lists.reg@...>
 

Bertie you wrote:-

I am considering having cruise control fitted, £350ish, is it money
well spent or purely a luxury I can do without
Is it a luxury? - well only you can decide. I've had it fitted and
after I'd calibrated it correctly, I find it a significant aid to
driving.

I have the extra memory unit that holds an extra three preset speeds,
which can be reset at any time. They are set to 30mph, 40mph and 55mph.
So the first two stop me from exceeding speed limits, which is so
difficult these days, with so many signs and some that appear to be
somewhat 'hidden'.

When you try to drive at a set speed, it is easy to gradually increase
your speed as others change their speeds. (Don't want to be over taken
by a MH!!!) CC will stop you increasing your speed.

On motorways etc there are two problems.

Too many vehicles overtake, pull in front of you, then slow down. With
CC you have to disengage it by pressing the break peddle. Without CC,
you just slow slightly.

LCVs are limited to about 56mph. If you travel just below this speed,
say 50mph , then they take a long time to pass and then pull in front of
you, too close and into your 'safety zone'.

However, these problems can be overcome and overall I consider CC to be
an advantage.

The reason I had to calibrate it correctly was because I made a big
mistake by having Dave Newell install it. He does not know how to do it
and also does not supply the customer information document.

Hi,

I would asume such people are trying to start a general chat group. I think
the site owner gets first pickings of any spare talent....but I may be doing
him an injustice.

I once managed to find myself a member of such a group, three men (including
the owner and myself) and hundreds of mature/elderly women. All very
sensible and decent, but all in USA. I had to leave! Anything up to 200 mails each
morning, same in the evening. All wishing each other a "happy day". My delete
key was red-hot. Pity, there WERE some sensible people in the group.
