Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

https://www.oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/app.php/gallery/image/20545/medium I like these Sistema containers for my meals and as containers for the fridge.

The glass is down on 1009mb. The forecast is for it to be dry but overcast all day. The change is in the wind, it's a...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Nice one Tiz, I hadn't thought of that. I got a delivery yesterday. Many years ago when I was at REW my mate Paul and I were doing a job at a factory where they made scotch-brite and in the boiler house there were large cartons of end of the run off-cuts which had failed inspection. They told us we ...

I saw a report yesterday that they have tweaked their internal camera system with some software that logs who talks to whom. They say it's for Covid virus tracing..... Really?
