    Aye I know about the real bear, I’ve seen her statue at the zoo. Assumed he meant the character though. Not important really.

    That Ross MCCormick plays for central Coast Mariners in Australia. His team mate is Usain Bolt who scored twice on his debut set up by McCormick.

    Christopher Milne had named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear he often saw at London Zoo, and "Pooh", a swan they had met while on holiday. The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War.[5] He named the bear "Winnie" after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "Winnie" was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition

    You can face a late payment charge by BT if you dont pay your bill within 21 days , the late payment charge is £7.50.

    Never mind you are paying your bill 3 months in advance, BT say you are late in paying . Figure that one out.

    It’s a setting on your phone that basically uses your phones data as a router to connect devices to. Which phone do you have?

    I’m not sure with Samsung’s mate I’m an Apple *, you are best going into a 3 shop and getting them to show you. And mirroring is sending the image from your phone to a TV through an app.
