Last year I bought 2 x 5 litres of Shell Helix from ECP for 20 delivered. I still have them.

Bit like sex really. You have to get it when you can.......if the price is right. :)

That reminded me of Billy Connoly's 3 rules for those of advancing years:-
1) Never pass a public toilet.
2) Never trust a fart.
3) Never waste an erection - even if you are alone!

STMO has these words of wisdom on a piece of paper that he keeps with him at all times.

His memory is not what it was.

I used to carry it around with me, but one of the public toilets had no bog roll.
