  • How many dogs can you fit in a car boot?

    is this like one of those people-in-a-Mini records that used to be on the TV?
    I’m not sure it’d work with dogs. Sooner or later a fights going to break out involving a lot of snarling and teeth. Followed by lots of blood.
    I wouldn’t want to be the person trying to squeeeze just one more dog in after…[Read more]

    1. Prawn (although unlikely to buy it in the first place so getting out of the way)
    2. Remove tomato from BLT and eat first (no sandwich needs to overpowered by tomaties)
    3. Remaining BL
    4. Ham & mustard.

  • I asked this a couple of months ago. Did some research, ignore most of the advice and went with Village B.
    It’s got a roof (good for if it’s scorching sun too), big screen opposite, near the fan zone stuff behind it, and in a section where you can see a few curves and hopefully some action.
    Some people were fond of Becketts, but there’s never…[Read more]

    he has been teamed with three world champion teammates and none of them managed to outshine him

    Jenson Button would also like a chat about 2011

    It must be a right of passage for those that trim their own hair.
    One Sunday evening I had just finished doing the main bit with a number 7. Took the guard off to tidy up some edges then noticed a long bit front and centre that I’d missed with the 7. Went straight for it forgetting it had no guard on. Tried to blend it in to various decreasing…[Read more]

  • For me, I was 7 when I first saw Jurassic Park in the cinema when it was released.
    Since then I’ve seen plenty of good (sometimes great) films but none of them have had the same effect on me as seeing those dinosaurs brought to life did at an age when my imagination was full of wonder and awe. Everything my life was about dinosaurs for a while…[Read more]

    We’ve been in our new build for 4 years now and have had no major problems after the initial snagging things were sorted.
    However, others on the estate have had issues with blocked drainage (full of rubble and waste!) and a few other issues that thankfullyhaven’t affected us.

    The major issue on the estate is the council not adopting the green…[Read more]

  • pocpoc replied to the topic Aldi cycling reviews… in the forum Bike Forum 2 weeks ago

    Lidl is the one with the bakery full of treats.
    Especially the goats cheese, tomato and pesto flatbread things – they are wonderful.

    Aldi is the one near my house that does not have a bakery section.

    I wish we had a Lidl near my house. My waistline is thankful we don’t.

  • It’s one of the reasons I rarely work from home.
    It’s not bad if she’s busy or out and about. There’s no way I could do it during school holidays when there’s three kids home as well – not a chance of getting a thing done!

  • Nationwide joint bank account covers both myself and my wife in whatever car we are in even if we’re not the owner or driver.
    Not sure what the policy is on children (ours are a few years off yet) but the mobile phone insurance covers them for as long as they live in the same house.

  • My only experience of running with a headtorch in winter wasn’t great. In the weather where you can see you breath you can only see where you’re going if you’re not breathing out. Otherwise the torch illuminates a great white cloud right in front of your face1
    I fancy trying one of the chest lights, but for now I just move on to urban lit streets…[Read more]

  • Not sure what the layout of the Partner is bit on our old xsara Picasso we had water ingress through the roof aerial which then dripped through the rear roof light cluster and perfectly down the gap between the rear seats and the parcel shelf, resulting in a soaked boot carpet.
    That one took a while to find!

    That is amazing. Now I need one of Yorkshire.

    Also, that has led me to the OS Flickr feed which means I’m about to lose a whole morning going through it!
