      More interested in Battlestar personally. 

  3. Sadly, one cannot get to work this morning due to a road accident at Toft Monks. 

    Coincidentally, wind & rain have just arrived!

  4. I wish I was working today, as it's a stonker for getting sunburn!

      Talk Talk was down all day one day last week due to server upgrades Pete and i was pulling my hair out.

      I reckon BT keeps their servers inside all those OpenReach vans that are forever driving about . . . it would explain why Openzone only works for two-minutes at a time?

  6. Holy crap!

      A few weeks?!.. It might be a good idea to put some sort of guard on the overflow pipes.

      Couldn't they just remove the nest instead of killing them?

  7. We have blue-white lightning and nearby thunder!

  8. Has anyone here used Driver Reviver? Should I try it, or should I avoid it, at all cost!?

    TIA

  9. I've just purchased the latest Strike Novel (Robert Galbraith) and it's got 1069 pages . . . I may be gone for some time!😁

  10. Is it just me, or have others been ravaged by mosquitoes too? The back of my hand is red raw, this morning!

      Annoying things. Does give you some satisfaction when they land on your arm and you can squash them like the irritating pests they are though.

    3. CreweCold

      I'll tell you something though, the most hideous pests I've ever encountered are fleas. Back in 2016 my housemate's dog brought an infestation into the house. Housemate duly moved out with the dog and left a myriad of blood hungry fleas behind. I was their only source of nutrient and got bitten to shreds. Was a couple of weeks of sheer misery, they were everywhere. I was close to a nervous breakdown they were that incessant. Managed to get rid of them eventually but it's not something I ever want to experience again.

      Horrible creatures. What is the point of them existing.. I've had bad experiences with them both. 

  11. Who else remembers all these characters?😁

  12. Went for a #4 in the end, so hope the weather plays ball . . . I'll be buggered if I'll pay for someone-else to do what I can do myself! Must be about 100 haircuts for only £19.99!

      I always used to do my own until my girlfriend insisted I had someone go do it "properly" 😒😂

      I think that's the thing I'm most looking forward to from the 17th, going out for a curry!

  15. Och well; another final, another ignominious defeat. I guess Mr. Presley's lease on our 'trophy cabinet' can be extended for another year?!😁

  18. Anyone-else noticing the rapid rise in prices, and wondering how to keep up with it?🤔

    I just imagine myself repeatedly punching a certain fag-smoking loud-mouthed beer-drinker squarely in the face!😁

      And  machinery spare parts becoming harder to come by.Classic was a sowing machine delivered from Germany  for spring sowing without its fertiliser box . 2 month wait for it so autumn sowing for that machine.

  20. I've already got a suntan!😁

  21. Och we'el, another tooth/filling bites the dust! Remind me never to buy Tesco's peanuts, ever again!?😱

    I guess there's a book title in there, somewhere, too -- by Major Tongue Sore?

  22. I do hope there's something on LBC tonight, other than fawning drivel about HRH, but I very much doubt it. 

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      i think the horror channel is HRH free

  23. No News, in today's i, until page 22 . . . hate to think what's in the Daily Mail and Daily Torygraph!😱

      those two rags make particularly  kid weeble wipes

  24. I wonder how long the News Blackout will go on!

    1. Nick L

      Nick L

      If the BBC take enough channels off air he might be brought back! Yes it's a historic news story, yes blanket coverage on BBC 1 was warranted, but to take over all BBC channels is ridiculous. Almost feels like a dry run for when the Queen dies.

    2. Ed Stone

      Ed Stone

      It's nae just the BBC, Nick, it's LBC as well: an entire night of fawning eulogies to Phil The Greek... I just hope that 5-Live's football commentary will go ahead!

      Let's just hope Her Maj lives forever!👍

    3. lassie23

      lassie23

      maybe the football commentary will have to be done by someone doing an impression of phil

  25. Well, it's now 28 days since I ordered a book from Amazon. And, still the bloody thing hasn't been dispatched. Next time, I'll order books through a proper bookshop; Amazon are shi'ite!
