    telly adverts

    Is it just me being a miserable old sod ,but some of the ads,especially the one for the card machine with all the oooooing makes me turn the telly off and miss the rest of what I have been watching,mind you the programmes are such drivel that we don,t bother switching it on most nights

  12. what do nottstalgians think of e scooters? I personally like them but it seems unfair that you can whiz round town on a rented on but not one of your own, perhaps they ought to be made legal and regulated in some way i.e. insurance cover and some sort of i.d.

      The Pianoman

      Hello Swe.  No, both the rear hubcaps are off because the wheels kept getting taken off for one reason or another. One day I shall do something with that car - or let it go.
