Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Ordered something for my American friend from eBay.com delivery estimated Friday. Brilliant.

Forgot to change the address back home with my next order from eBay UK so it's on its way across the pond. Bugger.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies says there was no risk of ebola spreading from that woman because there was no blood all the other experts say its passed on by any body fliuds so sneesing into some one eye could spread it. No wonder the health system in the uk is ****ed

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Yes it's spread by bodily fluid. BUT the measures taken place in a modern 1st world hospital means the risk of cross contamination and someone else getting infected is less than 1%. If it's spread it's due to human error.

Personally I don't think enough is done for people returning from the "Ebola" area's. Should be quarantined for 24-48hrs while tests are run IMO.

they wasnt talking about a hospital, they was talking about all the people she came into contact with before getting there

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Well my brakes work! Just had one of those "brown pants" moments when a Labrador sized dog suddenly ran in front of my car. I was so close to hitting it that it disappeared out of my line of sight below the bonnet. If it had been a cat, it certainly would have had used one of its lives!

I hate it when stupid people let their dogs roam. It didn't have a collar.

They still look absolutely stunning today.
I frequently have to look back at my own Grande in sheer disbelief that it's actually mine, lol!
Sadly, I don't think supermini design will ever be as good as the Grande Punto again.
I intend to keep mine as many years as possible!

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Spotted a new Blaupunkt satnav on Ebay at 0.01 starting price. 4 days into a 7-day listing and no bids. Held off to see if about to be bargain of the century, then day before ending bidding started. Went over my self-imposed limit, oh well, never mind.
It ended at about 95, plus 7 postage.
They are on Amazon at 87 delivered. Feel better now.
Moral: Before bidding, do some research.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Was annoyed this morning on leaving for work that my BT infinity activation date had slid back to Friday. However I'm come in from work, done a speed test, and found broad band that has mysteriously tripled in speed. Yes it's still poor for a Brazilian barrio at 3.55mbps but hey it was 1.4 this morning.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

The five door Punto I bought for my sister passed the M.O.T with no advisories.

I've been offered a Renault Megan as a part exchange.

Hmmmmm...

Pro - I can bin the back seats and use it to collect Mogrod bits.
Con - I will look like an emasculated weirdo driving a people carrier by myself.
Pro - It has a tow bar
Con - It has the 1.4 engine so towing anything bigger than 6x3 trailer filled with air will be a struggle.
Pro - I'll hate it so I won;t feel guilty driving it to work.
Con - It's a Renault so it will either catch fire, be stolen or stolen and set fire to.
Pro - I'll keep the mileage down on my Panda and X1/9
Con - I already have a bicycle for that.
Pro - It'll fit in the back if I get a puncture or want to ride somewhere socially (London to Brighton in June)
Con - Wherever I park for a cycle ride it will look like I'm dogging.
Pro - It's a sensible family car.
Con - Anyone who knows my family will know "sensible" has never been part of the equation.

...I can't believe I'm considering it.





How good would the Panda Express be with a van sized car with a tow facility?
