  1. Quiet rant. Racism, agism, sexism etc were always there, but fb insta twit etc have given nasty people a voice, the ability to hurt people at a distance , and they have got used to not being immediately punched in the face. This has lead the nasty people to think they can get away with it all the time. Same can be said of demanding people who think its ok to want the world to be how they want it, or even demand that the world be the way they want it. This world is a far worse place now we have social media. We would all do the world a favour if we challenge each other when we see something stupid. Nobody is saying "dont be so daft " any more to rediculous behaviour. We all need our friends and nice relatives to tell us when we are being stupid. But of course criticism isnt allowed any more. The world has many people with narcisistic personality disorder, about 1% of the population. Go on social media and you will find them easily.
  2. You do know that you cannot now just decide to live in Spain, Portugal, or any other Euroland country, cos of Brexit ending that right for Brits? Unless you have that countries passport it will have to be a visa application and crossed fingers. Having lived in Europe and been resident, pre Brexit, I agree with those that say buy a local car, its so very complex to register a uk car . First you will be asked to prove that you are a legal resident. The car will be the least of your problems. Are you fluent in the language? Sorry for the negativity. I worry about people moving to europe on a whim. Its so much harder now.
  3. In the "does anyone really care" department, the Louvre is the most visited french attraction, by some margin, mostly dead peoples work. The best thing to visit imho is Puy de foue. By live people. Utter madness.
  4. Today I became a little concerned that a life long limp was getting worse. Then I noticed I was wearing 2 different shoes.
  5. Never ever put a vaccuum cleaner anywhere near an eye,, even in jest. A samsung I had had a pretty explicit diagram of what could happen in the instructions ... ugh
  6. 2022 Renault zoe. Zero ncap stars.
  7. Honda NC 750 x ...... 80mpg. My Ovlov has gone from 34 mpg on a good day to 44 mpg by dint of extremely light right foot and avoiding braking by keeping a good distance. If I had to change car it would probably be an old toyota hybrid for 60mpg. But electric, gas , general price inflation and Ukraine are my concerns.
  8. Don't get me wrong on this, being courteous to your fellow man is just great. But... why do "courteous people" flash their lights to "let waiting driver out", who will then be smiling and mouthing thankyou to the left to said courteous driver when they kill the filtering cyclist, or motorcyclist who is coming from the right? BTW filtering is legal as long as it is done with foresight and care. Flying between stationary traffic at 50 mph is not. Once you see this happen, its never forgotten. Its great that no lorry driver will ever tailgate a car again, and that cars will never tailgate motorcyclist again. Well, a man can dream eh?
  9. Remember the days when pretty much all lorry drivers were knights of the road?? I get that its a shit job, stressful and all that, but so is being a nurse and they don't drive many tons of metal 6 inches from your bumper on a two lane road , bullying you along until you are scared for your life. Phill Preece haulage of Hereford needs to have a word with the driver of PE70 PRE , on the A44 4th Sep at 09.30 heading towards Leominster near Docklow. This driver needs help before he kills someone. The film is winging its way to H.M. Constabulary because I have now witnessed this loony 4 times and been his target twice, all on film and all while I was doing the posted limit. His yesterdays vital emergency destination? Getting some fuel..... Does anyone know where Phill Preece haulage operate from?? They keep a very low profile . Meanwhile, a big personal thankyou to all those HGV drivers who prioritise other road users safety . Sincerely Thankyou.
  10. For me, countdown is ruined.
  11. Just sold my longest ever owned car. I feel a bit like the family pet has died.
  12. The 103% is because they vaxxed everyone who comes across the border daily to work in Gib as well as the Gib population. No mystery here, nothing to see. Gotta feel for holidaymakers returning to the horrors of uk airports this summer. I am giving this years foreign trip a miss.
  13. Some years ago I considered buying an ex raf house, one of many that a developer had updated, until someone pointed out that the roof had been water blasted, as they all had, and that it compltely cocked up the glazed surface of the tiles. As an aside, if the operator falls from the roof the house owner could possibly be liable. Roof tile jetting is the new version of selling lucky heather.
  14. I am so happy! After years of carrying an injustice having been judged guilty until proved innocent by my then employer the P.O. , The then boss has today resigned from her current board positions and her church role ( and isnt that church role predictable). Perhaps she would like to serve a month for every year that P.O. employers wrongly served. Too much?
  15. Do yourself and your sister a massive favour and take the chest of drawers back to where it was, and leave it there in bits. She will learn not to take you for a fool. Or do nothing and let your relationship end really badly at some point in the future.
