 Post subject: Overlooking the obvious
PostPosted: Fri Feb 23, 2018 11:40 am 
I decided to get a "case" for my new ipod Touch, it arrived (no problem / issues) but it also came with a screen protector.
I have a screen protector on my mobile phone, but never gave a thought to having one on an ipod touch. (Great idea when you think about it)

So, my question is, what have you over looked that at the time you could not see, but with hind sight is ...

 Post subject: Homebase stuff the Aussies (Bunnings)
PostPosted: Wed Feb 21, 2018 11:58 am
We may have lost at cricket but we stuffed them good at DIY. Just to remind people Sainsburys bought Homebase as part of their Argos buy out and quickly found an enthusiastic buyer Wesfarmers

Firstly we conned them into paying too much so they had to write off £900m reducing their overall group profits by 85% and then they were left with loss making outlets and ...

 Post subject: Is Maplin going the way of Radioshack ?
PostPosted: Tue Feb 20, 2018 5:09 pm ... lance.html

I'm not surprised by this - low quality Chinese items, and too diverse - while other items are over priced

I use to travel 20-30 miles or more to a Maplin store in my younger years and carry back the big fat catalogue, these days i can get anything and everything online so rarely use them - the lack of electronics components stocked and ...

 Post subject: The Chase ITV
PostPosted: Mon Feb 19, 2018 7:08 pm 
I have to admit to being a fan of The Chase on ITV at about 5pm each weekday and try to get home for it whenever I can.

Todays programme 1st contestant went through with £35 thousand. I then missed a bit ... buuuutttt a little miss gobby full of herself had a crap cash builder round and took the lowest offer so went through with minus £2000

somewhere along the line we lost one ...

 Post subject: Handwriting.
PostPosted: Sun Feb 18, 2018 10:58 am 
Specifically, mine!

I got halfway round Sainsburys this morning and came to an item on my shopping list (written by me) that had me stumped - Pug Latches. :shock:

What the hell are they and why do I want them? :scratch:

I got my glasses out and studied it carefully - Puy Lentils. ...

 Post subject: Adverts - do we notice them?
PostPosted: Thu Feb 15, 2018 7:26 pm 
Strangely I can remember all the advert jingles from back when I was a kid but these days I hardly notice them. Okay we were a captive audience back then with no Sky+ to speed through the breaks. But the ads these days just seem to have the stereotype older man with a young wife, the obligatory ethnic or just bloody daft like that awful opera singer. That stupid tart dressed up as Nelson in ...

8:20 The gay couple living nearby grumbled that it could have ...

 Post subject: Why is everyone having a hissy fit about gender?
PostPosted: Sun Feb 11, 2018 8:54 pm 
The world is becoming a strange place! There seem to be more and more issues about language around gender. I read a story about some schools are trying to promote gender neutral language, so no more boys and girls, no girls team, boys team, different uniforms etc.

MTV have introduced gender neutral awards for acting.

Facebook have 71 types of gender identities you can associate yourself with

The clothes shop River Island has introduced Gender ...
