Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

LPH. Actually, when I bought the car last year, I paid around the average price for age, condition, mileage etc. Looking online now, similar cars are advertised at around the same price or more than...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Cooking foil and Coca Cola. Not the diet type. Works well on stainless steel. The acid in the coke is the catalyst.

Re: The Org Bar, Pull up a chair and share. What're you drinking?

The only thing I make is sloe gin but it does take a long time to mature. I make a batch each year and meanwhile, I am drinking last years batch. Since I sweeten it with sugar syrup instead of...

Got my home insurance renewal and it has been hiked up by 16% from last year so I rang them and got a revised cost that is 22% less than last years premium. The only difference is that I took a...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

One way to mitigate the increases is to have a fixed price deal. Mine is for 2 years (another year to go) with Npower so I have avoided the price hikes this time around. I also pay by direct debit,...

Re: Crossrail

I loved driving the A68 to Edinburgh. Only used the A1 when the weather was too bad (snow) on the A68.

Re: big engines (in cars)

Re: Qudos Insurance warning!!!!

It's not illegal to be insured twice but it would be illegal to claim on more than one policy (different insurers) for the same incident. That is deemed fraud I believe. Also, you probably wouldn't...

Re: big engines (in cars)

Unless money is no object, don't do it. My OH bought a Nissan 350Z and her tax is 550 too. Add to that we are lucky to see 20mpg even driving carefully, and what's the point in driving carefully in...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Sad to hear but if it was a lorry, then the driver might not have realised that he'd hit someone. I lost a friend a few years ago when a lorry clipped him off his bike as he moved off from traffic...
