    British Gas strike again!

    Had an interesting one recently, since my knees went I'm only doing odds and sods and this was how I met an elderley lady who needed a few bits and bobs sorting, while chatting she told me that her combi kept losing pressure and since she had the BG homecare she'd called them out, they'd...

    looking back

    The other day I was feeling a bit maudlin, and started to think about my past, I wasn't feeling particularly good about myself, I suppose everything has been getting to me and I was going on a bit of a downer, reading an article that said that with all that had gone on lately with Covid, it was...

    Getting used to changes

    Isn't it funny how you don't really miss something, or indeed someone until they are not there anymore, something can sit on a shelf in the shed for years and you never give it a second thought, then one day it disappears and suddenly you notice it isn't there any more. It's Like Tony, we used...

    Legalisation of drugs

    The government have admitted that they are not winning the war on drugs and there seems to be more people leaning towards the legalisation of certain drugs, I was discussing this with someone recently and he couldn't see anything wrong with the idea, I however can see a lot wrong with it. If...

    How Annoying is this!

    Ok, as pointed out by one of our regular members, this week after years of campaigning we finally got a law passed that protects service animals and recognises them for what they are, previous to this anyone killing or injuring one could only be charged with criminal damage! It's taken years of...

I had been out for some shopping, returned home and had a beer, then watched the armed siege, just down the road (yes we do get them occasionally) then gone into the garden to replace a faulty pond pump for SWMBO. I was in and...
