    Coffee Anyone?

    All sound a very expensive way of making coffee to me. All you need is a mug, hot water and a bottle of Camp Coffee


    Saw this article on the news today and now can’t get the image of Kenny Everett doing Brother Lee Love out of my head .Try it

    News Papers

    I I only buy one newspaper a week and that’s on a Saturday morning. I carefully take out the TV supplement and throw the rest of newspaper in the recycle bin. The TV supplement is the only believable part
  4. Everyone seems to have their own views on these calls and how to deal with them. Personally, as soon as I get the gist of the call being a scam or nuisance call, I hang up and immediately block the number. I then google the number on a reverse phone number look up site and look for comments about this number, most are about, Take a short survey, Claim PPI About your recent accident, etc Then there’s the real criminal ones trying to get into your computer I think it’s very unwise to try and take these scammers on, as remember, they have your name and phone number and can cause you no end of problems Simply hang up and block the number

    Slide Carrier

    Your problem seems to be solved by Maxwellian lending you a slide holder. I had the same problem as you while scanning hundreds of photos and slides and my slide holder broke. A replacement cost was sky high so I did some experimenting and found that you can scan without it. It is after all just a positional guide. I use an Epson V500 /550.The one Maxwellian is lending you looks the same as mine so it should be “problem solved”

    Our New Car

    I “accidently” ended up with a Honda 20 years ago when someone rear ended my Volkswagen Scirroco and wrote it off. I was so impressed with them I’ve been hooked ever since. So far two civics, three jazzes’, an Integra and a Prelude

    "At this present moment in time" Do you mean like "NOW" innit?

    Nbn Quiz Night

    And I will answer very slowly

    Bored With Crosswords Try This

    They were robbed by the waiter. They offered £30 to pay for the meal.The cashier said charge them £25 so the waiter should have taken back £5 to the three ladies and let them share it amongst themselves £1.66 each making the meal cost £8.33 each and give the waiter 1p left over as a tip

    Getting A Bit 'exclusive'...

    Too be fair to Kingfisher666 I had that thought as well, half of the posts were for full members only. Very often (every day even) I have a look at the forum and don’t usually have to log on to see it and I can understand new readers and potential members feeling excluded. Perhaps the full members section should be separate from the general forum with a different log in methodJust a thought

    Maps (and Charts If You Like)

    I’m with you on this one. I like to use a Sat/Nav not a phone but I’ve always got an up to date map in the boot to plan the route first and then as a back-up if the Sat/Nav breaks down

    Are You, Like Me, A Fat Pig?

    There was a program on the television a short while ago about obesity and it was casting doubt upon the BMI method of measuring obesity .It said a truer way to check your health and fitness was with a piece of string. Firstly use the string to measure your height .Then fold the string in half and put it round your waist .If it doesn’t fit then you’re overweight Now where’s that string?
