Whilst I agree that footballers[the top ones especially]get paid obscene amounts of money,how many of us hand on heart can say that if offered the same wage would turn it down as being too much?

I really hope I'd feel sufficiently ashamed by the current situation to pay the bloke who cuts the grass out of my own pocket rather than see him out on his @rse, mind. >:(

Noticed my MPG has improved noticeably. Empty roads, more please.

Mine's got much worse. Same reason. :-[


 I was up to 11.9 , but with the bloody wind today 8.9.. :o

I'm sure I could manage that in the XE if I keep the "snail" on song, but my license might suffer. :D

Yes it's not the Americans we need to be worried about but the Chinese, as they are undoubtedly poised to buy up struggling businesses across the western world.  >:(

I would rather the British government take on another 1 trillion of debt so that they can buy shares and controlling interests in struggling British businesses that are otherwise profitable and keep them afloat until better times. The shares can then be sold off later when the economy has recovered and the Treasury should make a profit.  :y

China must not be allowed to profit or gain power from this nightmare that they have inflicted on us!  >:(

They were happy enough to do that in 2007 when it was the banks, after all. ;)

Just as it was after WW2 when the Americans bailed us out financially, I can see them taking advantage of what will be our weak financial situation to work the post-Brexit trade deals, that will become a priority again, in their favour. :(

Or perhaps we should at last just become the 51st State of the USA!! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;)

If Trump continues to be as deluded, they might end up worse off than us. :(

FFS, my bloody wifi is *REALLY* pissing me off. Another long reply lost. FFS. So short reply this time.

If any of your members have a paid for Office365 Subscription, then Teams/Skype for Business would be free, and other members can join via web link. Do a pre run a few days before so everyone can get the plugins installed (same applies to all options.

Cisco Webex is king, but don't think they do a free option.  Same with Citrix's Goto Meeting.


Worth trying SIP providers for (audio only) free conferencing options.
You really should get on to BT about your Wi-fi  ::)
My Wifi aint provided by BT.

The issue here is people are stupid, and don't stick to the 3 non overlapping channels, instead going for the overlapping ones, thinking they are available.  So, as every single channel from 1-13 is in use, everything has overlapping channel interference, making 2.4Ghz unreliable :(.  Tempted to acquire a jammer, just to knock everyone off, so they actually bother to look up how to set them up ;)


5GHz works well, but not all my devices are 5GHz capable :(

Microwave oven with the door interlocks bypassed will do the job. :y

Set it up in the garden and you've got a nice barbecue with almost zero fire risk, too. :D

Indeed ,loads of food waste after people panic bought
some councils stopped garden waste bins ,which round here includes food waste
not much food waste goes in my bin, just potato peelings etc
so I'm making a compost heap in an old plastic bin down the garden
I guess the UK will have a plague of rats and flies soon  :(

in other news ,I was 50 yesterday, which bumps me up a group band  , so my chance of dying of "Chinese virus" quadrupled over night  ;D

You have my sympathies. I've got to survive until September. ;D

.. but many happy returns.  :y

Hope your Better soon Tony  :y

'Twas always thus. ;D

I will avoid making any jokes about how Tony will be fine, given his fully stocked freezer, and so on.. Oh, wait! did I say that out loud? :-[

I wish you a speedy recovery, Tony, and look forward to another meet sometime, whenever it can be achieved. :y.

Wondering whether to do an XE towbar fitting guide for some of the Jag forums, just to see what the reaction is. ;D

That's one of the jobs on my list now I'm confined to quarters. ::)

Kit car road tax is due at the end of the month. Thought hard what to do. Came to the conclusion that it doesn't make sense not to SORN it for now. Just when the weather is starting to get better too. :(

Mrs. KW took her car for an MOT today. As she drove up the road I remembered the advisories for rear brake pads ad deteriorated drop link dust covers that it got last year, which had slipped my mind.  ::)

Passed, with advisories on the drop links.  :D

Clearly she's not very heavy on the brakes.
