  1. How true! I have always felt that the world would be a much nicer place if humans had never existed.
  2. Congratulations and fingers crossed it all goes smoothly
  3. Ken, there is something I've been meaning to ask you for some time. What is the name of your cat?
  4. Every time I think of Ken an image springs to mind of a man sitting in front of a bank of screens, scanning for something to be offended at. A kind of pound shop bond villain for Forums. Unfortunately, occasionally his joy at finding something he considers controversial leads him to jump into the fray before the brain engages. Racism is defined as "Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior." Mr Banana has already stated he is white and therefore his comment cannot be considered racist anymore than a black person calling another black person the "N" word is racist.
  5. Correction, it appears that the fire affected one distributor only ( albeit a big one ). Still not good news.
  6. The Marché de Rungis in Paris ( the second largest food wholesaler in the world, employing 13,000 people, and larger than the principality of Monaco ) has been completely destroyed by a fire. Expect some gaps on the shelves folks.
  7. Interesting. Just looked up my address on HERE and it couldn't find it. The village went over to house numbers around 12 years ago with a couple of streets being renamed but HERE hasn't been updated. Maybe door to door isn't it's thing.
  8. I've always found the RAC route planner to be reliable.
  9. Before normal service is resumed, can I just have a shout out for the Princess Royal. IMHO all the royal family have behaved impeccably over the last week during what must have been a most surreal time in their lives but Princess Anne has stood head and shoulders above them all. Her stamina during the trip down from Scotland was frankly amazing.
  10. And then what? Are you happy for her just to be driven out of town to become somebody else's problem or would you rather ( as some have suggested on social media ) a more permanent solution? Events involving 'torches and pitchforks' rarely end well.
  11. The chip shop lady is quite touched. If you look at the message boards in the windows of her shop she obviously subscribes to some of the more wacky internet conspiracies. Her use of the term 'Lizard Liz' comes, I believe, from a theory espoused by David Icke that the Royal Family are in fact shape shifting blood sucking aliens who's real form resembled lizards. Normally I suspect her rantings are ignored. I'm afraid the poor lady needs help.
  12. Probably worth a try. I left a load of daff.bulbs in a damp shed for a year and,by the time I got around to plant them, they were moldy. Didn't expect much but they came up beautifully.
  13. No water, it'd bu66er up the electrics. I thought maybe instead of the desks I could use the space as a green house. Grow a few veg.
  14. something like this you mean? At last, somewhere to put those solar panels.
  15. Story here: https://www.midilibre.fr/2022/08/30/vehicule-surcharge-intercepte-sur-la9-une-photo-a-peine-croyable-diffusee-par-les-gendarmes-de-lherault-10513748.php
  16. Ooops didn't think the software would kick in on a proper name. Rhymes with Bike.
  17. Wasn't TV AM's eggcup house there? I seem to remember Greg **** saying something about swiping the keys to the barge.
  18. I think you chose very wisely and, given my time again, I would do the same. Water restrictions have meant my pool has been out of action since the 1st of August. Still I can take comfort from all the money I'm saving on the electricity.🙂
  19. Still, at least the forum isn't 'dead' anymore😉
