  1. My two experiences in the UK are that there is a public waiting room and the procedure is conducted in a treatment room with about 4 staff, I chose not to have anaesthetic/sedation, (which the staff seemed to prefer that you don't) and though slightly uncomfortable ([:-))]) meant I was able to drive home. By far the worse part is the guk of the previous 24hrs to the hilarious amusement of those around me! In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun, find the fun and you'll agree, it's as easy as can be! Good Luck[:)]
  2. Great guy and great legacy, my memories of him are his cars, in the 70's; driving a Mustang 350gt (how could something that big be so quick); a friend had a sunbeam tiger, which Shelby built the prototype, and Ken Miles had a hand too, but the most awesome memory is when hillclimbing at Gurston in the 70's, watching Paul Channon in his red cobra rolling up, swopping silencers for pipes, setting a blistering ftd, making it look soo easy, then replacing silencers and driving home! no plastic, no stripes or chrome rollbars, just a quick car. When trawling for pics I found that he still has the car and at 85 years old driving it at goodwood, way to go.  http://www.gt40s.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=22015&d=1184510774
  3. Portillo's Great Euro Crisis Analysis of Greek situation seems show the impossibility of the Eurozone becoming more united . . .
  4. Almost certainly the British are in the minority and outnumbered by a lot of people with expectations a lot different to theirs . . . [:D]  
  5. [quote user="woolybanana"] because he didnt know where he was going, didnt know where he was when he got there and did it with someone else's money!! [/quote] [:D] the fantasists have had their day, parrallels with blair are frightening; what odds Hollande isn't remembered for the same as the last socialist goverment in UK  -  letting a nightmare in by the back door and leaving a note to say there isn't any money . . .
  6. Read on, talk about hysterical rectum, I especially liked ''Good results at first interrogation'' and ''Spiced nuts''[:-))]
  7. Having just watched a bit of Sarkozy's address in which he warned that should the country turn to socialism then it is likely to follow the route of Greece, Italy, and Spain, (quite possibly IMHO). Despite this the polls seem to show that his personality is the problem and turkeys will be voting for Christmas. What price the € next week?[:P]

  10. I have had several occasions when my automatic login to the forum has dropped out and initial attempt with my password to log-on rejected, sometimes a second or third attempt will work (I'm fairly confident I use the same password)[8-)] However today that did not happen, so I requested my 'forgotten' password to receive the gobbledegook below and successfully logged on, however I then attempted to change the password Despite complying with the original login, and then attempting to change the gobbledegook to my own password the link does not work, taking me through the Archant ‘’this page does exist’’ and then to magazine subscription page! Finally I attempt the perverse ‘’reply to this e-mail at noreply@archant.co.uk; which of course failed. This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification. Delivery to the following recipients failed. noreply@archant.co.uk I then attempted to contact the Forum administrator and received   ''This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification. Delivery to the following recipients failed. James.Parfitt@archant.co.uk Please advise how I might change my password from the gobbledegook to my own, I am puzzled as to the number of times that my automatic log-in is cancelled and my (only) password rejected?

  12. I have nothing to add about DSK walking the tightrope he chose, but am moved to say that the future of the country is decided by the government chosen, less so the personalities that cloud the issue, ''Democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried '' Churchill. Having seen what happened to the markets last week with the first whiff of the possibility of a socialist government getting in, I would have to vote tactically to ensure that it didn't, and if I need any further motivation I'd remind myself of what happened under a socialist government in UK and where that led.
  13. OOpps, I see the double post button is broke already[8-)]
  14. My old Kenwood electronic 4 slice is still going strong 12 years on, whereas to keep up with fashion, my son has just chosen the Magimix Vision Toaster, which is see through, so you get to see the bread colour as it toasts, it also toasts one side, great for toasted sandwiches, (do you like your crunch on the inside or the outside?) luurxury indeed, when I were a lad we toasted one side with a fork.[:)] Toast straight from the toaster warm enough to melt the butter is my preference. 
  15. I'm quite happy anywhere in A or K upper deck[:D] anywhere else is under sufferance
  16. [quote user="breizh"]  never underestimate the selfishness of french voters, and their lack of economic education. [/quote] Presumably why the euro continued to fall, €122.5 at the mo?

  18. One thing guaranteed to tee me off are sales calls, especially when they are silent, presumably to make you call back (which I don't!); so I was pleased to see this. I would never ever deal with a company that uses this method, does anyone?   .telegraph. /Homeserve-hit-with-record-750000-fine-by-Ofcom-over-nuisance-calls.

  20. All of the above of course; Isn't Breivik playing the opposite view of extremism to Abu Qatada et al, except he admits he committed rather than just incited acts; Two sides of a twenty first century crusade, with the sane caught inbetween, set to run
  21. At the risk of incurring the wrath of people not wishing to have distressing and awful images brought to their attention, and not withstanding the endless playing of the Titanic docujubilee, I fear that reporting of this case will become prominent, while I find myself strangely drawn to hear what he has to say . . .

  22. [quote user="You can call me Betty"] I'm wondering why it's wrong to "shoot Finn down in flames" but it's perfectly OK to "shoot PaulT down in flames".   [/quote] The forum does already have rules for contributors, and the contributors are the community of the forum, to paraphrase the contribution of a mod recently, ''if you don't like what is posted, don't comment,'' better yet, make a contribution of some positive value to the forum rather trying to impose a negative set of rules.
  23. [quote user="Finn Dooley"] This is a single isolated act of the utmost barbarism committed by some insane monster, and as such it is surely not worthy of any form of debate.  I'm sure we all have better things to do. [/quote] Do we really nice people have better things to do than to be aghast at the plight of this woman and man's inhumanity in this case to a woman? I would hope not, even if simple ephemeral comments, the least we might do is express a little sympathy, and a lot of anger . . .
  24. [quote user="Quillan"] [quote user="Clarkkent"]Wow! What good fortune. They will enable the RAF to get back to operational strength following the savage cuts imposed by the governemt.[/quote] Shame their not Seafires, we might have some planes for the new carriers (when they are built). [;-)] [/quote] You beat me to it,[:D] I spent too much time searching for this Seafire
