  1. In May I took a cheap fixed rate elecric/gas deal with Green. Now they've gone bust & I will be transferred to one of the big six I presume, bet I won't be on a cheap fixed rate though. Ahh well I've had 4 months of cheap electric & gas...
  2. Been to my doctors for my 2'nd decapetyl (triptorelin 11.25 Mgs) 3 monthly depot injection for my prostate cancer, bums a bit numb/achy now, feel like a pin cushion. Also did my flu jab at same time. Seeing oncologist on 29'th this month to see about radiotherapy...
  3. Only one I remember is Miss/Mrs Cheesman, she slapped the back of my legs & it really hurt, Can't remember what I did wrong though...
  4. Had a test drive in a double clutch auto Hyundai i10 the other day = very strange experience, it also had stop/start. You'd stop at the lights, when they turned green I pressed the gas & nothing seemed to happen, so pressed a bit more, then the engine fired up & it zoomed forwards, when accelerating I could feel it change gear, I can hardly tell when my present fluid clutched Hyundai i10 changes gear. Wife seemed to like it so there's a good chance we'll be having one soon, it'll take me some time to get used to it though, & I'm an ex driving instructor...
  5. Read somewhere that the compounds were considered the way to go as they used the steam twice so two bites of the cherry - in theory. It also mentioned the starting problems, but I've also read some ordinary puffers, especially the two cylinder jobs also had trouble starting, my cousin who's a driver at Midland Railway at Butterley has a good chunter when the won't start. I presume the three & four cylinder jobs were easier to start as less chance of stopping on a dead spot...
  6. In New Scientist that they've discovered that black holes exert a very tiny pressure. They've discovered this by incorporating quantum field theory with general relativity & viola = up pops pressure... Probably a bit more complicated than my description: I make it sound like they chucked quantum field theory & general relativity into a food mixer & turned it on, I'm guessing that is not what they did. They actually used a supercomputer & scientific noggin to work it out...
  7. My wife Sue worked for a well known bookies & was the only one there who didn't smoke: everyone would go in the back for a fag break, even the gaffer. When Sue went went in the back for a coffee break in lieu of a fag break the gaffer said she wasn't entitled as she didn't smoke. There was a row & gaffer had to back down, but she wasn't happy about it...
  8. Big debate in boffin land at moment on what to do when (or if) they find evidence of alien life. Some say we should try & contact them, but others are saying don't under any circumstances advertise our existence to them. I agree with the 'don't tell em we're here' brigade. First contact with the Spanish didn't go well for for the Inca's. There are many examples of Europeans making contact with less advanced civilizations & then using/robbing them for their own ends, lesson's to be learn't there IMO...
  9. I used to teach my pupils to do hand signals, (1980's/90's) they'd say why? & I'd say "in case the flashers go 'phut' & you have to drive to the garage to get them fixed. Also they were in the highway code so could get a question on them on the test." (This was before the theory test came in) Maybe they could buy a vintage car not fitted with flashers, then it'd be hand signals... My ex girlfriend would forget to put the choke back in all the time & wonder why it used a lot of petrol. She'd also only put ESSO petrol in, she swore blind SHELL, TEXACO, JET etc were no goo
  10. Been reading about 'no rinse washing liquid' = you don't need to rinse after washing the clothes. This'd be perfect for twin tubs as you'd just need to transfer the washing over to the spin dryer & wouldn't have to keep squirting water into it to rinse & Bob's your uncle it's done... If it's any good or not I don't know as I've never tried it. Not sure I'd be happy not rinsing the laundry though...
  11. Mam had a Hotpoint twin tub job. When I came home on leave I bung all my uniform & whatnot in it then transfer over to the spinner for a rinse & spin, stuff came out nice & clean. Wife's auntie in Perth Australia is still using one...
  12. Ours is a through lounge/diner 21 feet by 11 feet 6 inches with a table at one end near patio doors, & reclining sofa & a reclining chair, telly, wood effect electric fire (spinner flame effect gubbins no longer spins though) & a stereo system Some neighbours have put a wall up half way through their lounge to make 2 rooms but they're a bit small IMO...
  13. Gaffer tape a toothbrush to your mobile phone then ring it = free electric toothbrush... I accept your thanks in advance...
  14. Agree 100% Catfan, I hated every minute there...
  15. Listening to radio 2 playing chart from 1981: It's taking me back to when I was single & used to chase girls at disco's, especial Bestwood Welfare on a Sunday night, also Hucknall Welfare + Apollo & Horse & Jockey in Bulwell...
