I’ve been pension age for a year and a half now, but they give me nothing because my wife still works.

Aw guys, sorry to hear all that... back here we have or had the regulation that a spouse could retire at 60 if partner was 65, but now retirement age is 67 and a bit, and I probably won't make it to retirement myself unless I lay off the cocoa.

It's a bit of a trying time for me, been having health issues I won't go into in this all-male set-up.

For how screwed up the US is you or your spouse can independently retire at any time, for once something...:lol:

In the UK you can access your private pension pot at 55. I did that, retiring at the same time. 67 is also the age of accessing the state pension in Blighty. However only half of the men in three generations of the Henry family made it to 70 so I'm not sure that I'll benefit from it. Also the amount is very low. I'm going to get £9,000 per year. There is no longer an earnings related element to it.

Sorry to hear that you are not in good health Bonny. Is cocoa a euphemism for anything toxic or was that just a joke?

By the by, the pension payments are not means tested in the UK, either on one's own financial circumstances or one's spouse. There is however a top up available of £1-2,000 which is means tested. But that rule in Aus is unnecessarily mean.

No I'm a terrible chocoholic, can't get enough of the brown stuff.

Dad's recovering though, he had a X-ray taken and the bone was healed, he can get out of the sling.


Had quite an adventure this morning. Had a bit of a rough night and heard my father calling me from downstairs at 6:30, the time I had to get up - because there was a power failure in the neighborhood. Tried to get dressed, went down, discovered cell phone torches give a lot of light. Made tea the old-fashioned way, in a pan of water, dressed my dad for his hospital appointment and had to skip breakfast - but I made it to work on time. Still need to set the alarm clock to the correct time.

Ah yes, chocolate. I don't have an off switch for chocolate or anything else high in sugar (or flour) but bars with >=85% cocoa solids work well for me. A square or two and I'm done.

It is good that your father is recovering well.

I wake my chocolate in many degrees of percentages and many types of special flavours, I'd tell you more but I already downed a box today and I need to stop that, so...

Will be visiting BF tomorrow again for a few days, hurray! Taking a bit down time from caring for Dad. He can do more though, he can already do most of his dressing.

I used to have short working trips to Belgium and bring back chocolate as gifts. That was the best I have had and I became popular with the recipients of the boxes.

Over on the Maverick HiFi forum Eddie, as PC Hobbs, I think I am about to get banned after my contributions to the General Election thread. I've ripped into New Labour voters and, as we know, that accounts for most of them.

LOL I'll have a look - did you see my post about Trump and the AUKUS agreement :devil:
Maybe too many woofers lol

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At least the stupid AUKUS agreement would end under Trump- but not a good way to stop it 😉


AUKUS (/ˈɔːkəs/ AW-kəs), also styled as Aukus, is a trilateral security partnership for the Indo-Pacific region between Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Announced on 15 September 2021,[1][2] the partnership involves the US and the UK assisting Australia in acquiring nuclear-powered submarines.[3] The partnership also includes cooperation on advanced cyber mechanisms, artificial intelligence and autonomy, quantum technologies, undersea capabilities, hypersonic and counter-hypersonic, electronic warfare, innovation and information sharing.[3][4] The partnership will focus on military capability, distinguishing it from the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing alliance that also includes New Zealand and Canada.[5]
