 Post subject: Impossible pills
PostPosted: Wed Jun 06, 2018 11:04 pm 
Doc has given me some pills to take, (one pill three times per day).

Reading the destructions it says:- " .....should not be taken within one hour before, or two hours after drinking tea, coffee or milk...."

Bearing in mind that I drink tea almost constantly through the day before switching to coffee in the evenings I'm not really sure when I'm going to take them.

I can't wait an hour before a tea in ...

Are the people of this country f****g stupid or what?

Watching QuestionTime I'm aghast at the response from the audience over the so-called Russian-supported gassing in Syria.

We seem to have a public that is happy to poke the Russian bear (a Nuclear armed global power, no less) on the basis of an already-discredited social media video purporting to show Assad gassing his public...... :angryfire: ...

A rant. not worthy of Kellys eye buuuttt....

Right, so yesterday I needed some Chicken stock.. I make my own every 3 months or so and freeze it in ice-cube bags. I'd run out.

Sooo went to supermarket and not wishing to buy stock cubes (which are mostly salt) settled on a pack of four "Stock pots".

I didn't have my reading glasses with me, so couldn't read all the ingredients... but as there was ...

Are new builds worth it they are like wagonwheels ... s-11323783
They don't seem to hold their value if you buy from new ones round me which are 10 years old are still not back upto the sale price
They only have a 10 year warranty not much longer than a Kia
The workmanship/quality isn't that good and they pennypinch on materials

PostPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2018 1:14 pm 
I no longer have a use for some items I have, I could put them in the bin, but there is nothing wrong with them so I figured I may as well sell them for a few £ (selling on ebay will cost too much, and there is postage and packing and buying something to pack said items in all adds to the cost which then makes items "too much")

So, I put some items ...

Have you seen this,

"Brexit voters voted to be poor and we have crushed the hopes and aspirations of the younger generation",
well get off your arse's and make a life like we had to, we have not all had gold plated pensions and had to make life choices sometimes right sometimes wrong, why do washed up politicians like to stir things up. :angryfire:

 Post subject: What's that all about?
PostPosted: Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:01 pm 
I bought a pair of shoes in an outdoorsy type shop (part of a well known chain), I'd managed to misread their website and consequently discovered that they didn't have in stock the shoes I'd wanted to try on.

After getting a different pair home and giving them an extended workout around the lounge, I knew they had to go back.

I phoned and explained the situation, they said they would get in the shoes ...

 Post subject: Feet
PostPosted: Sat Feb 24, 2018 1:16 pm 
Not those on your tape measure, the ones at the end of your legs.

I've got wide feet and have struggled for years to buy shoes that actually fit my feet.

I can remember exactly three times in my life when I've tried on a new shoe and there's been that sublime moment when you realise that they do actually fit and are comfortable.

I don't actually have many shoes, three identical pairs of Keen ...

 Post subject: Another day, another scam.
PostPosted: Tue Feb 20, 2018 4:36 pm 
Took a phone call this morning; they wanted to speak to the wife about a legal matter. I told them she was in hospital. Can we speak to you about it was the next question. When I said yes, she said I'll get someone to call you. Ding dong, alarm bell 1 - even the bloody doctor won't discuss my wife on the phone with me.

They phoned back about a half hour later, a ...
