Re: Obsolescence

I watched the aero press video with interest, and it looks good in several ways - I like the way it uses very small paper filters and no electricity. It would be lovely if making just for one person, but it would be good if they produced a bigger version that would do at least two cups at a time. A...

Re: Obsolescence

Fancied a personal coffee machine, bought on special offer from Amazon. Used it all of half a dozen times before it croaked. I kind of fancied a coffee machine too. However, I hate "gadgets" that only do one thing, and sit taking up space the rest of the time. So I bought an Aero press. It isn't a ...

Re: Obsolescence

Oh yes. Built in obsolescence. Designed to fail after a certain length of time/amount of use. Infuriates me. When a previous washing machine broke down, the repair man asked for a detailed description over the phone of what was happening. He then said that he reckoned it was (whatever. Can't remembe...

And Skippy the Bush Kangaroo! I actually came across a dvd of Skippy a couple of years ago, and bought it for sentimental reasons. I was actually appalled at how racist and sexist it was! :lol: :lol:

Re: Christmas Cards

We still have that type of wall tile in our downstairs toilet ! They were there when we moved in and as the wash basin and toilet and flooring were brand new we have just kept it the same. Great believer in if it aint broke don't fix it. Pale blue tiles looks like a budgie to me. I'm kind of the sa...

Re: Christmas Cards

Mum and dad used to put the presents in the front room, and hide the key. part of the excitement (and a way of ensuring we ate breakfast first!) was hunting for where Santa had hidden the key! My parents were great at Christmas. One unforgettable year, they got us all bikes. Five new Triumph 20s wer...

Re: Christmas Cards

I once sent a card to a (male) friend, which showed a reindeer looking down a chimney pot, laughing, and a "speech bubble" coming from the fireplace end of the chimney saying "I don't care who you are, Fatso. Get your fingers out of my stockings, and get back up that chimney!" My friend was amused. ...

Re: Christmas Cards

Aaah memories, remember that also. I can also vividly remember the decorations we had at home where you unfolded and clipped the snowman's stomach made of tissue paper and there were a pair of red bells, there is probably a name for these type of ornaments, they made diamond shapes all the bits of ...

Re: Christmas Cards

I'm afraid I'm a traditionalist where Christmas cards are concerned! Olde Worlde scenes, snow scenes (although in reality, I hate the stuff with a passion!), and of course, robins! Scenes of cosy fires and Christmas trees. Bring it on! :)
