I thought the kids were going to be sick when I told them I'd put ginger in their curry.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

When Hotmail upgraded to Outlook, or whatever they did, I did nothing and kept my Hotmail email addy. The service has definitely gone worse and I often got messages like "unable to send your email, please try later" or "unable to load your message". Possibly it is at my end as I use ad-blockers but ...

On that note Firefox is asking me to create an account with them today. Apparently it has amazing benefits! When I looked at the list, none were very relevant to my usage. :smile:
I,too, got that one and didn't sign up.

Re: Mobile Phones

I lost my Orange number and pay-as-you-go account a couple of months ago but at least whoever runs the account nowadays had the decency to send me a cheque for the full amount I was in credit. I last used it in 2012.

Re: Old fashioned clean jokes

One evening, after the honeymoon, Tom was working on his Harley in the garage. His new wife was standing there by the bench watching him. After a long period of silence she finally said "Honey, I've just been thinking, now that we are married, maybe it's time you quit spending so much of your time o...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

China, your trade figures and claims are misleading, too simplistic. You say ` 80% of GDP is domestic trade' but much of our domestic trade is in goods that have been imported at some stage or are made from at least one imported component. This is politics, does it need to be 100% truthful? :biggri...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Shall we put this into some sort of perspective? How about trade? Let's see: 80% of GDP is domestic trade. Of the 20% remaining around 12% is Non-EU, that is to say, trade with the rest of the world. That leaves, only 8% of GDP coming from trade with the EU. Sadly, EU rules, standards and tariffs af...

How far is that China? About 700km/450miles approx. High-speed trains all the way, the Chinese high-speed railway system is fabulous. About 4 hours running time. I'm back again now but will need to go again in January to collect my new passport in person. It is possible to do the return journey in ...

This afternoon I’ll be with a friend on a high-speed train travelling eastwards across southern China on our way to Guangzhou. Guangzhou was formerly called Canton. We will submit applications for the renewal of our passports on Wednesday morning and then travel home in the afternoon.

Re: Shed Matters 3

I'd love you to get the engine operational, seems such a shame to give up on it. After opening it up once again, would it be possible to blow compressed air or smoke in a reverse direction, ie from the exhaust, and would this show up anything abnormal? Perhaps you could block off wherever the smoke ...
