........which is due by 6th November.

In isolation I was pleased with a figure of 278.

However, an email this morning from my old chums at Saga came up with a like for like figure of 20 petrol from any Texaco garage.

Took about 20 minutes sort. :)

Now who will be the first to call me a tight bastard? ::)

Last year  306.53. This year a rise to 353.92...... :-\

Ten minutes on the phone with Admiral resulted in a further discount of 75.23.


Seems reasonable enough. :)

General Car Chat / Octane booster.

It isn't always easy to find super unleaded 99 octane fuel around here.

Will octane booster work when added to supermarket petrol, or is it snake oil?

General Car Chat / Jaguar Solihull to close for two weeks.

Could be some exceptionally good deals on new derv cars. They need to shift them one way or another. :)

General Discussion Area / As of yesterday.......

.......I'm mortgage free. :y

The best the bastards would offer me was 4.74%. I wanted 2.5% or less.

It's a fair old chunk of change I had to come up with as the mortgage had 8 years to run (2026) but I console myself with the fact I'll save thousands in interest and have an additional 850 each month to squander. :D

Nice feeling though.

Now what can I waste 850 on each month....... ::)

Initially they thought it was the nips. :)

General Car Chat / Has car tax gone up?

Direct debit payments are now showing as 48.56 each month for both Signum and Tata.

48.56 x 12 = 582.72 (twice) :'(

General Discussion Area / Trip to the dentist.

Three teeth are basically past saving and because of this eating is becoming a problem. They need to come out.

I don't want a denture, they are for old people. Another option is a dental bridge but these tend to damage the good teeth either side of the one that is to be pulled, and can cause more problems than it can solve

Anyway, I've decided on three dental implants which should last me until I'm placed six feet under.

Today I've had a CT scan to check bone density ( 240)........I will then need to have  the teeth extracted before the butchery can commence. :)

Should take about five of six months in total.


General Discussion Area / Superbikes of the seventies.

The presenter couldn't be more 'wooden' but for those of a certain age (old bastards) a trip down memory lane. :y

General Discussion Area / Cost of rent in the private rented sector.
« on: 09 September 2018, 12:44:07 »
Figures according to Homelet Rental Index.............July 2018.

UK average...................937
UK average excluding London......777
South East................. 1041
London .....................1615

The cheapest is the North East at 525.

These are just crazy figures. Presumably private renting is far more expensive than social housing rent.

How does anyone afford these rents?

My first thought was blocked scuttle drain like the Omega, but there doesn't seem to be much of anything behind the battery.

Windscreen seal itself?

It should be called Irish racing green.

General Discussion Area / With Iresa going tits up.....

....we've been moved to an Energy company called Octopus.

New one on me so presumably not one of the big six.

Any good?

General Car Chat / 35 year old lap record finally broken.
« on: 02 August 2018, 19:04:33 » almost a minute. :y

.......and faster than Hamilton's pole position at Spa in 2017.

Who decides what and how much?
