one month ago I paid  £79.99 for one year Amazon Prime.  I am not happy with it, 2 times recently I have purchased things and at the time of ordering it said GUARANTEED ONE DAY DELIVERY and then a few minutes later an email is received confirming the purchase and states next day delivery, 1st time it came 4 days late and 2nd time 2 days late.  This annoys me so as I say I want to cancel but my question is will they refund money for the 11 months Prime not used, how much will they refund and how long (aprox) will it take?   I don't want to just dive in there and cancel and lose 11 months Prime that's paid for if you catch my drift.  Thanks.

UPDATE, I went on Amazon last night and instead of cancelling Prime I thought I would click on "contact us" and had a chat with someone who identified himself as Patrick who was an extremely nice / helpful guy who sorta convinced me to stick with Prime.  He gave me a £10 Amazon gift card for the inconvenience.   :)

Our kitchen light is one of those you push in to turn on, with a dimmer you can turn. More and more itís not turning on when you push it in (no jokes please). Eventually it comes in when you push it enough times. Iíve taken the round Ďbuttoní off but donít know if itís a really simple thing that can be fixed or whether I need someone who knows what theyíre doing to come and take a look. Any ideas?

I'm expecting bonjela but......

We live out in the country and get a few mice, so we have mouse traps pretty much set up all the time in a few corners of a few rooms. We normally use cheese as bait, nothings happened for months and then last week I notice the cheese is gone from a couple of them without being set off. Put another couple of bits of cheese in...gone next day. Put another couple of bits of cheese in...gone next day. These are little bits of cheese where a mouse would have to climb right into the trap to get. I then put a bit of peanut butter in one and a bit of pate in the other....gone next day. Is this just some mouse gymnast, or could it be something else having off with the food without setting off the traps?

Maybe the mice are still too small to set off the traps. Keep feeding them, and you'll get them?

Also are there any mice droppings? Or could put a light dusting of flour down to see if there are foot(paw?)steps.

Either they are too light as redbyrdz said or they are approaching the trap from the side. I now use humane traps and, after catching a big mouse, but then seeing the bait disappear, I had to stick a £1 coin on the little plate inside to weight it to assist in triggering the trap, as the mice where tiny - caught 4 little ones. When we had mice in Southport, I realised the mouse was coming to the trap from the side, so I blocked it so they had to approach from the front, that worked as I soon found a mouse with a caved in head in the trap.

What traps are you using? When we have had mice in the past we used the sticky pad ones, regardless of size or acrobatic ability that should catch the little bastards.

If it's been used for years,  just replace the switch.   Not expensive and easy. 

If you're replacing with a similar model to the current one...

Turn off the mains,  unscrew the old switch cover,  take a pic of the wiring,  double check the wires are not live with a test pen,  then unscrew to remove old and install new.

Pretend to the wife it was a lot more work and very complicated.

Just be careful and extra sure that the mains is off,  no current running through it as you work.

The big switch at the right.  Usually,  if the switches are labeled,  turning off 'lights'  should suffice.  But since you're trying this first time,  be safer and turn the main switch off.  After that,  nothing electrical in the house should work till you turn it back on.

We had a mouse issue once and used humane traps but never caught a single one; meanwhile their numbers kept increasing the fucking fucking-all-day- getting-more-than-I-were bastards.

Had to resort to old fashioned Tom and Jerry traps and that got rid of the lot in a few days. Put them close to the wall so that they run along the wall and onto the trap. Cheese isn't the best bait in my experience. Chocolate is good but Peanut Butter is the absolute number one bait. Gets them everytime, they find it irresistable.

We had a mouse issue once and used humane traps but never caught a single one; meanwhile their numbers kept increasing the fucking fucking-all-day- getting-more-than-I-were bastards.

Had to resort to old fashioned Tom and Jerry traps and that got rid of the lot in a few days. Put them close to the wall so that they run along the wall and onto the trap. Cheese isn't the best bait in my experience. Chocolate is good but Peanut Butter is the absolute number one bait. Gets them everytime, they find it irresistable.

In the winter we had loads, probably about 4 days in a row we caught them with cheese bait and putting the traps along the walls. But thats what we're doing now and every day, the baits gone or is untouched. I put a bit of nutella in one and peanut butter in the other last night, this morning nothing. I'll guarantee if I put cheese back in....it'll be gone without setting the trap off. I'm starting to think its one of those animal ghosts I mocked on here a few years ago, tormenting me by taking the cheese as punishment for killing him last year.

Just ordered one of them Rob :thumbup Better for my karma if I'm not killing the little shits.

Make sure you stick a pound coin to the trigger plate, that will mean that even baby mice will trigger the trap. I found peanut butter was the best bait - the smell must really attract them.

Looking for somewhere close enough to walk to match at Anfield to have Sunday lunch before the game.  Was thinking of the Toby Carvery Queens drive but donít really like the walk after (over 2 miles). Could park car up near ground and get taxi to the Toby but am wondering if anyone has any other suggestions.  Thanks
