Lowell Group

Lowell Group - Financial Debt Purchase Specialists

these idiots have phoned me from 0113 30086000

when I phoned back they would not say why "data protection"

my guess is they have purchasd a non existant debt for a Sky TV installation which Sky refused to complete because my flat is on the seventh floor

Sky TV acknowledged that I owed them no money more than 7 years ago
meanwhile debt collectors play "pass the parcel"

LOWELL group - Google Search

How do I stop debt collectors Lowell Group, ringing my house and sending mail for someone who left 4yrs ago? - Yahoo! UK & Ireland Answers: "I had a similar problem and after banging my head off a brick wall for a few weeks, I got a bit irate and told them to check their records and if they stepped one foot on my land I would have them arrested for trespass and I would sue.

Funnily enough.... they must have checked their records.

Now you could do it that way.. but its probably more professional to do go to the Citizens Advise Bureau - although its not as fun!!!"

Baked Codfish, Stuffed: "strain the liquor into a stewpan, add thereto six ounces of butter, four ounces of flour, a glass of Harvey, a glass of wine, a little anchovy, cayenne, nutmeg, a few chopped capers, lemon-juice, and four dozen of scalded oysters; stir it over the fire until it boils; pour it over and round the fish, and serve."

Charles Elme Francatelli (1805-1876) Chief Cook to Her Majesty the Queen: "Revered for his blending of the best of Italian and French cuisine, Francatelli was regarded as a leading chef in Victorian London and spent most of his career in Britain directing the kitchens of several aristocrats and nobleman.

In particular his early career saw him in the employ of the Earl of Chesterfield, Earl of Dudley and Lord Kinnaird at Rossie Priory in Perthshire."

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) - sleepdisorderchannel: "Sleep apnea can be caused by either complete obstruction of the airway (obstructive apnea) or partial obstruction (obstructive hypopnea—hypopnea is slow, shallow breathing), both of which can wake one up. There are three types of sleep apnea—obstructive, central, and mixed. Of these, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common. OSA occurs in approximately 2 percent of women and 4 percent of men over the age of 35."
