Look on the bright side here in UK....perhaps those regions which are prone to their imposition may avoid a hosepipe ban later in the year following the wet weather. At last, the cricket has managed to get started, England against the West Indies at Chester le Street today, though despite being warm...

Doggies!!

Hi King Minos I am an ex Lab owner, I do admire your optimism about them being quiet/placid dogs, mine never grew up until he was over four, he was a reject RAF search dog who was too lively to work at two years old!

Driver up your bum-per

Hey girl, I have survived over twenty years. Who want's to use a taxi or bus and put your life in someone elses hands?

Go for it, give 'em hell, we have been here long enough to realise the way it works! :evil: :evil:

Driver up your bum-per

Glad you survived Carolina, bet you needed a stiff drink to steady your nerves by the time you got home :shock:
Question is, will you continue to attempt to be a 'law abiding' driver or not?

Such a sanctimonious reply Kenny...not like you at all. :roll: 22Euros was a small price to pay for a valuable lesson in town centre parking. It isn't always as easy as you seem to think to find ...

Is there any specific way to re wire two pin plugs? I did buy some, intending to fit them to lamps and items that were without an earth wire, but chickened out when I split one open. They looked different to the old style 3amp(?) UK plugs that I remembered from being younger. For the record, Pat was...
