I agree but not when itís not declared as that instead of cod

Yes wasn't there a scandal a while back where chippies were using Basa instead of Cod?  :-\

STMO is too old to notice the difference between cod and basa. ;) :D

I presume basa is much less expensive for the rogue chippy to buy. ::)

Yes it's farmed in Vietnam.  :y

Pedant Alert!!




Hoovered Dysoned a load of shredded paper I had spilt this morning so used the pipe to hoover it up, for the 1st time ever it suffered a blokcage  (where the dust enters the cylinder ) it was easily sorted but whilst sorting it I chipped the latch mechanism (Still works ok) and noticed the belt had snapped.

You have a Dyson vacuum cleaner Skruntie not a Hoover.  :) Pedantic I know!  ;D

Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute, a really great machine with battery power to hoover my home multiple times. Attracted now to the V15, laser, so saving up for the around £599 price, but I know it will last as long as I want it to.

Why not a cordless?  I would not know dream of trying to go around a home with a corded machine, plugging in, unplugging, all the time. Besides I can easily hoover out the car with my cordless. :y
Again Lizzie Dysons out her home and car....  ::)


I would make the point that each Dyson that comes out is an advance on previous performance levels of their earlier models so they cannot be compared after years, no more than a SEBO can. SEBOís are undoubtedly a quality hoover, often compared side by side with contemporary Dyson models, so at the end of the day I believe it is personal choice and what every individual prefers in their own judgement. :D ;)

I don't believe that Hoover make SEBO vacuum cleaners Lizzie.  :D

What annoys me is what I have found with certain people I know stating what I said before, even though they have never actually owned a Dyson, often buying the cheapest hoover and quality on the market ::) :P

Do Hoover still make vacuum cleaners?  ???  Were they ever cheap?  ???             ;)


But being a woman you would obviously have read the instructions and know how to use it...

Yes, but second nature as I have been hovering since I was 8 years of age!

Mum got me doing housework and cooking from an early age. I had two brothers though who never did that! No equality in the 1960ís!! :D :D ;)

That's bloody clever Lizzie!  :o  ;D

Seriously though, it's interesting how a brand name gets inserted into language to describe a household chore and even other brands of vacuum cleaner get referred to as the Hoover.  :)

I wonder if younger people refer to doing the vacuuming as doing the Dysoning?  ???  :-\  :)

Obviously I'm saying this tongue in cheek but this approach was considered a pretty normal route to take by so called 'intellectuals' as recent as as the 1930/1940/1950s.

Eugenics?  ???

They are doomed to fail there will never be enough of a reserve to charge the infernal machines

I have a lefty/greenie mate who often enthuses about electric cars and the utopian days ahead when we are all trundling around in little milk floats, but when I point out inconvenient truths like Where is all the electricity going to come from? He gets mad and dismisses me as An effing denier!  ::)

He's good sport!  ;D

Ahh, yes, virtue signallers don't like seeing the inconvenient "big picture". ;)

If everyone plugs in their milk floats at 6PM ready for the following day will the grid cope?

Yes of course, we are going to be the Saudi Arabia of wind!  Didn't you know that?   ???    :D

Got to be honest I would never buy any other than a free range egg, and at the moment Morrisons have 6 small eggs for 50p or 6 medium for £1. Free range  here.

I bought a half dozen box of extra large eggs from Lidl recently and five of them were double yolkers!  :y

The old girl has had a bump in it already, big dent in the n/s front wing when I walked past it this morning, I've never driven a Corsa but did drive a Nova a few times that was awful.

Shame. Bet she's gutted.  :(

You should go round and polish it out for her!  :)

Swmbo has only complained about the price of eggs having gone up , I try not to get involved with food shopping as long as there's beer on her list..👍

Sounds Like you'll have to start sending Mrs Mick to Lidl rather than Waitrose!  :)   ;D

I popped into Costco in Bristol earlier this evening and picked up a tray of lamb steaks which for years has cost between £11 - 13ish.

Tonight the same tray with 6 or 7 steaks cost between £20 -23 depending on weight  :o, so sadly they went back in the fridge rather than my trolley.  :(

A taste of things to come....  :-\
And I can see this government deciding to tax beef, because he lives we a silly tart who worships Greta.

Anyone noticed the number of adverts for plant based protein on the TV lately? :-\ :-\ :-X

Processed pap crap!  ::)

The primary reason more than 99% off people survive is because it really isn't as deadly as we were told.
This strain is 3 times less likely to put you in ICU.  Trouble is, the figures were running at over 3 times the previous peak infection rates.

The infection rate figures are now meaningless, as the messaging has gone out by Buffoon Boris that its all done and dusted, so nobody is testing.

On 20th Jan (latest data) 1,370,093 tests were recorded in the UK, so I don't know how you can claim that?  ???  :-\
