  1. Remember when I delivered cars for New Crown one of the cars had the letters BRA, the woman who bought it was over the moon, she went round to get her neighbours to come a see her new car reg, she was so happy...
  2. My most stressful motorway driving for me was when I was taking the advanced driving part (part 2) of the driving intructors tests: The chief examiner told me to drive from 27 & come off at 25 & back towards the city through Clifton. Got up to 70 MPH & in lane 3 (as it was back then) overtaking other traffic when just before 26 we hit a jam & stopped, then stop/go at a snails pace. As time was getting on he asked me to come off at 26, so I had to get over to lane 2, then lane 1 for the slip road, so left hand flasher & hope someone lets me in, which they did - eventually,
  3. Thursday morning Pix came in a bit upset = part of his tail was black (he's ginger & white) & he squealed when we touched it. Took him to the vets & it's a burn, vet shaved the fur off & you could see it was a burn, he gave us some pain meds for him. We think his tail must have rubbed up against a hot exhaust or catalytic converter from a recently parked car. He'd been a bit quite but seems to be getting better as he's been playing with his raggety toy mouse that he loves...
  4. Wife was taking the clock off the wall to reset it one hour back: as she took it off the nail came out of the wall, she shouted "THAT'S YOUR FAULT!" I tell you I always get the blame for everything that goes wrong in this house, lol...
  5. I remember the welfare orange juice, it was delish. I also remember the cod liver oil, can't remember what it tasted like though. Used to have a malted milk drink at bedtime, think it was a cheaper version of horlicks, also ovaltine...
  6. When I was in the army on exercise's we'd have egg banjos, (fried eggs sunny side up in a sandwich) they were delish, often the egg yolk would run down your chin... BeeKay. Like the idea of corned beef with egg & chips, not sure about the gravy though. My wife has gravy on fish cake & chips, ugh, lol...
  7. After mentions of egg & chips in my post about gas cookers I've started a thread on it.... I LOVE egg & chips,to me it's a comfort food & so simple to cook. Sometimes I buy a bag of chips from the chippy & fry a couple of eggs, might have to warm the chips up in the microwave but hey so what. Mam would often give us egg & chips when I was a kid, wonder what the health police would make of that nowadays?
  8. We've got one of those air fryers as well, does oven chips nice, also wife does scampi in it. I'm not struck of scampi I so usually have egg & chips, & that takes me back to being a kid as we often had that...
  9. Just had a look & gas is 7-28 pence a Kw & electric 27-62 pence a Kw, so cooking with gas is quite a bit cheaper. We have an electric oven as no gas pipe is on that side of the kitchen & we got it in a sale for £85...
  10. That reminds me of when I'd done something stupid, I'd say "so & so did it as well" Mam'd say "if so & so put their head in a gas oven would you?" I'd then stand there looking gormless...
  11. In some papers & websites that gas cookers cause excess indoor pollution making asthma & chest problems worse. I have a gas hob & everywhere else I've lived had a gas cooker. I haven't got asthma or chest problems, mind you I've never smoked, but Mam was a heavy smoker & my ex live in girlfriend was as well. New York, LA & Berkeley have banned gas cookers in new builds. Wonder how long it'll be before we ban gas cookers as well?
  12. Ukraine has pushed Russia out of Kharkiv - hooray. So is this the start of a Ukraine victory? I'm thinking not. I recon it'll eventually end up with Russia keeping most of the Donbas & Crimea with some kind of negotiated settlement - that's if Putin doesn't go madder that he already is & uses nukes...
  13. I could have done with AC on Monday & Tuesday as I kept having mega hot flushes caused by the ADT/hormone therapy I'm on for my prostate cancer, I had 2 fans blowing on me all day & night.... We had an AC unit in our room when we were in Florida, it was noisy so we had it on full blast all day & turned it off at night, it'd start getting warm about 8/9 AM so we'd turn it on again & go down for our breakfast. The AC also had a heat setting on it, but I don't know if it was reverse cycle or just had some heating elements in it & became a big fan heater...
  14. I was hot so opened the freezer door & stood there naked... I'm now banned from ASDA....
  15. Yes me. Got through 3 electric kettles that went phut in 5/6 years & I got fed up of buying new ones: Found the whistling kettle we used to use for camping yonks ago & just put it on the gas hob & use that now. Our cat pix couldn't care less when it boils. When we had a power cut I was boiling water for the neighbours as they all have electric cookers/hobs, we're the only one with a gas hob...
