What is it about EV cars that draws such debate who cares and I have to say, side tracks this thread.
Thankfully "with the greatest respect..." seems to be less common now :) That really did start to wind me up

BP fuel 156.9, just off the motorway
Costco 146.9 about a mile away,

Trying to pull this back on topic........

Who no longer live at home....
But have done On-line orders to be delivered to our address!!!!

I have three daughters...
one now living in Sheffield...
one now living in Surrey...
one now living in Alexandria, USA!!!...

I don't know why but they seem to forget to say..
Dad I have a parcel ordered that should be coming to your address within the next few days!!!

Football goal celebrations, particularly the ones where the overpaid tosspot runs and then drops to his knees and skids along the ground for no apparent reason! Bring back dogs onto the pitch and let them provide "obstacles.
Absolutely ANYTHING to do with football, ANYTHING . To paraphrase Bill Shankly "it’s not that I think football is not important , it’s far far less than that"
Women who enhance their lips with CT1 or such like and then insist on attempting to "pout" on photos, but in fact present the image of a bilious pig impersonating a 🦆
