Will we ever know what had happened to him? :-S


AnnCardiff Report 2 Dec 2012 21:45

Sid? :-S


Susan10146857 Report 2 Dec 2012 21:46

Spending his Gas shares in warmer climes


Tecwyn Report 2 Dec 2012 21:47

Would that be Sid the gas fitter? ;-)


PatinCyprus Report 2 Dec 2012 21:47

Eldrick's Christmas story, Sid had been kidnapped. :-(


AnnCardiff Report 2 Dec 2012 21:48

PatinCyprus Report 2 Dec 2012 21:51

Ann we both spotted it at the same time. :-)

Sid's SIL the teacher of French wondered where he was and tracked him in the snow, she'd just found the 3 wheeled trolley and that's where it finished. :-S


AnninGlos Report 2 Dec 2012 22:10

And nothing to report in any of them.

,,,,,,do you think someone's got an over-imaginative mind and read things into the story that weren't there?

If that's the case - none of us stand a chance



PatinCyprus Report 2 Dec 2012 23:09

It could have been a hiccup in the works if it was 1 but it was both that went.

Something has happened to several threads, I await an explanation (if we ever get one) as I'm bewildered. :-S :-( :-0

They went too quickly to have been RR'd :-0

That was the first time anyone made any money from shares. Almost all of us made a bit of money with Sid.

Privatisation of gas has been a huge benefit for consumers. Who would have thought we would have 20 gas companies and about 300 tariffs today? Kept prices low ;-) (bit sarcastic, last bit)
