Re: Favourite Car

I'm assuming you got some stick for having a Lada. It's funny because they were a very sensible car that has actually aged a lot better than a lot of it's swisher contemporaries. Still, if your parents wanted to make your life hell I think the only better options available to them were the Skoda and...

Re: Favourite Car

Did you ever manage to overturn the 2CV and claim your million francs??? :D. It was a rock solid design, a truly great car. Those old Volvos never came off second best to anything less than a ten ton truck so you are probably lucky to still be alive and kicking. I had a 79 Escort van that had a simi...

Favourite Car

When I used to look through family albums there were always pictures of people either in or gathered around the family car, whether it be on a camp site or a picnic or just outside the house. People always seemed to have a story that would revolve around some kind of mishap or nice memory involving ...

Burning a hole in your pocket!.

I've been a bit surprised over the past couple of weeks at just how much money seems to be sloshing around post lockdown. I was talking to my postman today and he was telling me his sister is an estate agent and they have sold 35 houses in two weeks!. I like old cars and I tend to watch the classic ...

Re: Making a dust bath for the girls

Get a hold of some regular garden soil, put it in the litter tray, let it dry out, pound it up so it is reasonably fine. That's about it really. Whether they will use it is another matter entirely, can never tell with chicken can you.

Re: Coronavirus

I went to the GP yesterday, was given very clear instructions to wear a mask, buzz the intercom and await instructions. They tell you to use the sanitiser provided, watch while you do it and then buzz you in having given you directions of where to sit, which is on a dedicated bench for your examinat...

Re: nature notes

I've just been trawling through this thread and am amazed at how many different types of moth you have managed get BYM, great job. I went up to photograph a couple of chicks that my broody Sussex had hatched on Wednesday and managed to snap this butterfly. I think it is a marbled white but have to a...

Re: Cheery Pics

You're assuming it's a typo, forgetting that it's excellent advice for anyone trying to protect their pubic area.

Re: Coronavirus

From what I can tell the early advice on face masks was aimed directly at stopping a run on masks by the public which would leave shortages for medical professionals. That is presumably why when the WHO finally changed its guidance it still stressed "non medical fabric coverings". People today enjoy...

Re: Coronavirus

Interesting piece on the BBC News site about this. Worrying thing is that if Singapore can't make it work then there is precious little hope that anyone else can, let alone us.
