RE: [VIDEO] Epstein dead by apparent suicide.

A lot of very well connected people ( rank perverts ) will be breathing sighs of relief......unless JE uploaded the whole story to the cloud???

RE: Dvd storage without cases....

If anyone is interested, I'm going to try this,

The drawers are A4 size and I will place the dvd inserts in side by side landscape style with the discs inside the paper 'envelope' made by the inserts. I reckon I will fit about 20 per drawer, 2 piles of 10 side by side.

The drawers are faux leather so I hope scratch free.

Best of all, reasonably easy access and much less space.

Even SWMBO seems happy with the idea.

RE: [VIDEO] 50th anniversay of moon landing

Not so sure that Mike Collinsnh the short straw because he had a ride home had Eagle messed up. 

Watching it now, when Grayling couldn't manage building a railway, really drives home the cutting edge engineering at the time.

RE: Dvd storage without cases....

Cheers for that, I'll have a look.

I can't believe no-one has exploited the gap in the market.

If I find anything promising I'll report back.

Dvd storage without cases....

........but with paper inserts.

Any ideas?

We need to create some space. I've looked at those zip up disc wallets but there's nowhere to keep the insert along with the disc.

Ideally I'd like an insert size vinyl sleeve with a disc pocket.

Kind of a marsupial wallet.

Then I can shove shove them into a box.

Never to be seen again.

De-cluttering? That would require some serious therapy.

I'd rip them but don't know of reliable software which do so nearly automatically.

RE: [VIDEO] Top Gear really is back!

It's a good point Jitendar but the analogous point is where manufacturers place petrol caps. 

Politician just haven't thought it through and electric cars will only work as a concept if only 5 to 10 % of the population use them. 

It's Waitrose motoring.

Andy Murray injured again.....

..... apparently he tried to chest bump Serena.

Hope Solo.....

Think I've got a crush!

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Can someone please put a sock in that Laura Lightweight who has all of the gravitas of a slow punctured beachball.

RE: [VIDEO] His Dark Materials (HBO | BBC)

Pass me a glacier mint and shurrup!

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

Blimey......Ned was stabbed in the shower and it was all a dream??

RE: [VIDEO] Bohemian Rhapsody (Freddie Mercury story)

It was only about 22 minutes which make it more amazing

I never swallowed any of the cool/not cool crap

Not afraid to say that Joy Division always were and ever will be a crock

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

ERG is all about shorting shares, isn't it? 

Why does Laura Kuenssberg never ask about that?

Doesn't she understand how it works.

It is not about political ideology it is about cold hard cash.


RE: Such a shame...RIP Mark Hollis.

Thanks for this Si and RiP Mark.

Gonna play my vinyl Spirit of Eden on phones this evening.

He had a great voice and created some beautiful melodies.

So sad.

RE: Crazy weather

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

I was out in the garden today and saw a Painted Lady butterfly on the daffodils. Friendly things, it came and landed on my arm as I was putting a few lupins in. Yes, yes, I know. 

Bumble bees out too. Hope they're not out too early. Last year l was scooping up bumble bees crawling over the lawn that had got wet and cold and letting them warm up on the back of hand before they were warm enough to motor up and fly away.

Sanded and painted the garage door frame which is one job out of the way.

Crazy weather

My birthday is in February. No, this isn't a heads up for those that missed it. My point is it is often snowing for my birthday. What is it with this crazy weather and how are you making use of it?

Honda to close Swindon factory

Right. Suggest we all stop eating Japanese whale meat.

That'll teach them.

You never know until you try......

My sat nav system in my Toyota was not working.

So I took it out of the dash.

Took it apart.

Fixed it.

And put it back.

I think there should be a national awards show for stuff like this.

What would your entry be?

Here's the deed being done

Can slap my bottom for a million pounds. Just sayin'

RE: [VIDEO] Miley Cyrus feminist :)

I reckon per inch Sandi is probably paid the same.

So what's the fuss??

RE: [VIDEO] Stomach acid tip

Alfie, you'll never look at a combine harvester the same way again!

RE: [VIDEO] Stomach acid tip

So, unbelievers! Anyone tried this remedy? Any converts? Or closet worzels?

RE: [VIDEO] Miley Cyrus feminist :)

Hey Miley, maybe ask for an auto-tune, just sayin'

RE: RIP Paddy Ashdown

There are those who served their country and there are career politicians. And they stand out a mile.

RE: Christmas Shoppers

I've done about 90% of my Christmas shopping online. Why go out in the car to drive around looking for parking at shops with narrow ranges of stuff that is more expensive or just tat with tinsel, to get grumpy because I'm hungry and won't pay £3.50 for a coffee? 

Amazon prime was one of the best investments I've made.

So what if numpty politicians can't or won't tax them properly?

High Streets only ever existed because there was no other choice. Nowadays, if people go shopping they go to a hypermarket or a shopping centre. 

 If you're not niche or a charity shop, you're all doomed!

RE: [VIDEO] Stomach acid tip

Haha! Scoff until you try it and understand the power of nature!

And even save yourself a few quid.

Stomach acid tip

OK. Bear with me on this and save a fortune on gaviscon type medication.

Your stomach contains quite powerful (hydrochloric) acid.

When you eat carb rich food (chocolate, pastry, ice cream, cake and crisps) like you do at Christmas, the acid in your stomach often can't cope and churns up and you get heartburn.

If you help your stomach with a bit of dilute acid, it can help it cope and settle you down in a few minutes.

A quarter inch of apple cider vinegar topped with an inch of water, so it tastes vinegary but doesn't burn going down works a treat for me.

A bottle of ACV in Sainsbury's is about £1.50 and lasts ages. Maybe not good if you have ulcers but try it.

It sounds counterintuitive but it really does work. Natural too.

So type 2 diabetics are...

just greedy?

Is this the sub text?

RE: Worst cat ever

Re sudden cat attacks while stoking, probably a static shock was given to the cat. I do that to our cat, sometimes by accident.
