@mary1947 Sorry about your grandson’s troubles.  I hope he will be OK , also the rest of the family x

It’s good that he wants to speak with you on the phone, though.

I think grandchildren are very precious gifts …..

Done it. It had a capacity of 5 litres so 4 litres of water to 1 of washer concentrate.

Still remembered how to syphon water after filling with water to get the volume.

 

Went inside and the leader of the opposition had Wimbledon. The match was between two girls one who played silently and the other whose name was Gruntalotikovavitch almost screamed at every shot she played. Painful to listen to, it's not necessary, why don't they ban it?

When I was very poor, I used to use Meths...which is basically Ethyl Alcohol plus some poisons.. and a drop of washing up liquid.  It worked. 

There are three purposes to screenwash:

1. Clean your screen.

2. Do the above without freezing onto your screen, or in the washer bottle etc.

3. Protect the screenwasher system, pump etc.

 

These days I tend to buy the concentrated stuff and dilute it to suit. In Summer you need very low concentrations, so you can use less.  In winter you need a higher ratio of screenwash:water, to prevent either your bottle or pump freezing up.. or the stuff freezing onto your screen as you use it while travelling.

 

Since temps rarely drop much below freezing in the UK, it's a money saver to properly read instructions on Screenwash..then use less... :laugh:

I as a bit disappointed to see England lose on penalties to Italy.

Still we got further and closer than we have for decades and we do seem to have a team with some ability.

Maybe we'll do something in the World Cup.

I only like Tournaments.  I can't be bothered with the whole league pantomime.

A gazzillion pounds a year and still don't know how to take a penalty.

Pathetic at all levels, players and coaches.

In summer we need a higher concentration to help dissolve and get rid of all the squished bugs, we never get frost so freezing is not a problem.

Don't hold back Oz.. what are you really trying to say?

 

FWIW, I thought Saka was a poor choice of Sub as he messed up everything in play and missed a 'pen'.  But I also think that Wonderboy Stirling is over rated.  He persistently tries to much grandstanding and always wants to beat one last player..rather than laying off the ball to someone else.  When he gets it right he is spectacular. but his success percentage rate is far too low.

Ah!!. so you maybe don't need as much alcohol to lower the freezing point, but you need more solvents to dissolve bugs.  Since bugs are mostly composed of proteins.. I'd suggest Concentrated Nitric Acid, which really 'goes for' proteins.. (I have the scars to prove it.)

However. it will probably dissolve your screen wash system. and possibly you....

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!

In the vernacular.... Give it some welly. Trying to stroke it just inside the post will not work with the  athleticism of today's goalkeepers. Hit it so hard that if they get a hand to it it goes into the net with the ball.

I think your comment is hard to belive, no-one likes to lose but I think our team did well. If I remember not many reporters had a good word for England a lot thought we would be out of the comp near the start. So lets look on the bright side we got to the final. The young man who took one of the penalty's did not score but I bet next time he will make sure it goe's into the net.  "HAY_HO" There is more to life than football.

Some people, myself included, just aren't interested in sports. Doesn't inconvenience me. I dispensed with tv years ago.  I suppose next year, it all happens again? 

 

Given that, at one time, children in schools were encouraged to see sports as non-competitive and, for all I know, perhaps they still are, perhaps there should have been a bar of chocolate for all the players last night and no trophy. It's the taking part that counts, children. We can't have anyone feeling negative!!

Sad to say football today is so boring to watch..........square passes...Back passes.......keeping possession.....

           Gone are the days of the long ball and taking on defenders with a mazy dribble...and a few crunching tackles or even a shoulder charge on the keeper.........

                  Glad the Euro's are over.....sick of seeing so called fans dancing up and down shouting ''C'MON ENGLAND'' while kissing their mates...with a Pint in hand.......

            To say nowt of the so called experts on TV saying they are ''proud of them ''and are all hero's...Demi-Gods'' in fact.....

          Finally......Best team won''......but they were also boring.........

Football's ended with relief by most of those sensible minority now that it's all over.

 

Over paid, over indulged ball kickers that couldn't do it at the test.

 

Followed by over excitable followers and the usual drunken yobs behaving like demented school girls.

Is this new England? Hopeless!

Yesterday people kept asking me "who do you support" my reply was either of them or both of them or whoever wins. I'm not into football but have watched semi finals and of course last nights final. I suppose I wanted England to win ( patriotism) but then I saw the English " yobs" spitting on the Italian flag and it really got to me. It hurt me, disgusted me and never even in a million years thought that hate could go so far. From that moment on I heard of gate crashers and disturbances outside ground. My interest in England winning was slowly diminishing although my mind was still with England. It happened then that I thought I hope Italy can win so for the game it was Italy, Italy.

Football is a game not a war on behaviour against opponents. I know its only a few who give England a bad name but it hurts for me because people here think the English are like that and I know they are not. 

The players taking off  their medals was disrespectful. They should have been proud to have made it to the final.

Dont think for one minute that the Italians are blame free as I presume theres been a few incidents that make the Italians feel sad for their behaviour.

However they won wasnt the result that everyone wanted to see. Its a disappointing end to have to resort to "rigore" ( sorry I don't know the english translation for the goals)

Also during the presentations I was amazed to see the stadium so empty. I know, I'm not so stupid , to realise the english were disappointed but not to   Congratulate the winning team was completely bad sportsmanship.

I expected some trouble after the game and I was right. Why oh why does it have to end like this. Be happy for whoever wins.
