How to Get a No-Faxing Payday Loan

The advent of online services such as Internet banking has made managing your finances easier than ever. The days of reams of paperwork, faxing back and forth between agencies and customers, and weeks of waiting while paperwork was processed have all been replaced by instant, online quotes, no-paper banking and direct contact between financial service providers and customers.The same holds true for Payday Loans. Payday Loans have become far more accessible, thanks to secure Internet sites, minimising the amount of paperwork involved and replacing copying and faxing documents with online forms that are filled out in a few minutes. In the bad old days there was also the question of access to a fax machine – if you wanted to keep your financial affairs private it was very difficult to get to a fax machine without your co-workers seeing all your details. Now that almost everyone has access to a home computer, no fax Payday Loans can be arranged in the comfort of your own home. The only security measure you really need to think about when arranging an online Payday Loan is that the site you are putting your details into is a secure one. This is indicated by the prefix ‘https’ in the URL address line and a locked padlock icon in the in the URL address line or bottom right corner of the screen. These security measures ensure that your details cannot be cloned by ‘spyware’ software and should be looked out for on all pages where you are filling in an application form.The reduction in hard-copy paperwork such as faxes or letters also means that a Payday Loan is much quicker to arrange. Whereas before you may have to wait days for an approval, no faxing Payday Loans are usually responded to within 24 hours. If you are approved, the money will be generally paid directly into your bank account that same day, giving you access to the funds in a much shorter space of time.Payday loans are a quick and easy way to ‘top up’ a bank account that may have too much month left at the end of the money! Unexpected expenses crop up for everyone, and despite careful financial management (and particularly if you are paid monthly) a sudden car repair bill or a last minute opportunity to book a cheap holiday can scupper even the most prudent of customer’s fiscal plans.Payday Loans are small loans paid against your expected monthly income and repaid with your next pay cheque. They are not intended as long-term loans, so it is essential that you work out exactly how much you can afford to repay with your next pay cheque without leaving yourself in the same financial position the following month. To qualify for a Payday Loan you must have a bank account, be at least 18 years of age and a UK citizen and be able to show that your wages are paid directly into your bank account on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Payday loan providers practice responsible lending policies, and aim not to lend to those who are over indebted, so they generally carry out credit checks as part of their approval process.Payday Loans are a perfect solution if you suddenly need a short term cash injection – perhaps to pay for a new mobile phone or a weekend break away. They don’t necessarily have to be for the nasty things in life like unexpected bills – they can be for the nice ‘treats’ as well. As said earlier, you do need to ensure that you are able to pay the loan back from your next pay cheque, so always make sure your finances can handle that extra payment at the end of the month without leaving you in financial difficulties the following month. The advent of paperless and no faxing Payday Loans have made managing little financial hiccups in the middle of the month that little bit easier.

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7
My Dad repaired most of our shoes believe it or not, I can hardly believe it myself now. With 7 pairs of shoes always needing repairs I think he was quite clever to learn how to “Keep us in shoe Leather” to coin a phrase!

He bought several different sizes of cast iron cobbler’s “lasts”. Last, the old English “Laest” meaning footprint. Lasts were holding devices shaped like a human foot. I have no idea where he would have bought the shoe leather. Only that it was a beautiful creamy, shiny colour and the smell was lovely.

But I do remember our shoes turned upside down on and fitted into these lasts, my Dad cutting the leather around the shape of the shoe, and then hammering nails, into the leather shape. Sometimes we’d feel one or 2 of those nails poking through the insides of our shoes, but our dad always fixed it.

Hiking and Swimming Galas
Dad was a very outdoorsy type, unlike my mother, who was probably too busy indoors. She also enjoyed the peace and quiet when he took us off for the day!

Anyway, he often took us hiking in the mountains where we’d have a picnic of sandwiches and flasks of tea. And more often than not we went by steam train.

We loved poking our heads out of the window until our eyes hurt like mad from a blast of soot blowing back from the engine. But sore, bloodshot eyes never dampened our enthusiasm.

Dad was an avid swimmer and water polo player, and he used to take us to swimming galas, as they were called back then. He often took part in these galas. And again we always travelled by steam train.

Rowing Over To Ireland’s Eye
That’s what we did back then, we had to go by rowboat, the only way to get to Ireland’s eye, which is 15 minutes from mainland Howth. From there we could see Malahide, Lambay Island and Howth Head of course. These days you can take a Round Trip Cruise on a small cruise ship!

But we thoroughly enjoyed rowing and once there we couldn’t wait to climb the rocks, and have a swim. We picnicked and watched the friendly seals doing their thing and showing off.

Not to mention all kinds of birdlife including the Puffin.The Martello Tower was also interesting but a bit dangerous to attempt entering. I’m getting lost in the past as I write, and have to drag myself back to the present.

Fun Outings with The camera Club
Dad was also a very keen amateur photographer, and was a member of a camera Club. There were many Sunday photography outings and along with us came other kids of the members of the club.

And we always had great fun while the adults busied themselves taking photos of everything and anything, it seemed to us. Dad was so serious about his photography that he set up a dark room where he developed and printed his photographs.

All black and white at the time. He and his camera club entered many of their favourites in exhibitions throughout Europe. I’m quite proud to say that many cups and medals were won by Dad. They have been shared amongst all his grandchildren which I find quite special.

He liked taking portraits of us kids too, mostly when we were in a state of untidiness, usually during play. Dad always preferred the natural look of messy hair and clothes in the photos of his children.
