Re: Mhairi Black MP

Re: Hardknott Pass failure.....

Its frustrating as you can tell what is going to happen. First gear and clutch slip maybe required. Clearly not listening to his bike, as it almost stalled out passing the car.

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Not one to put people off having what they want, but did you hoover out your PC John? If it's dusty and running hot then that will slow the cpu. Check the heat sink is tightly bonded etc?

Putin will say NATO is behind it all.

Re: P&O Ferries

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Yes, isolate when test positive in Wales. You can get out after 5 days allegedly, but have to have two consecutive clear tests 24 hours apart - but shouldn't test until day 5. Also, you cannot go out...

GOTD - the price of heating oil. More than double the highest price I'd ever paid before and treble what I paid around this time last year.
