I got a 4 page statement from Vodafone years ago telling me i didn't owe them anything, seeing as i cancelled my contract in under 24hrs as their customer service was appalling when i needed help at the time and phoned them.

Here I am doing my bit for the environment shuffling around the house bumping into things with inadequate low energy lighting - not that I can move around much due to the the 15 layers of woolly jumpers ( heaven forbid I turn the heating above 4 degrees ) save the washing up water to flush the loo, walk 8 miles to the farm market to buy veg covered in shit. All this and then 2 football clubs and fans who are 10 miles apart fly 3,000 miles for a 90 min game.  :rolleyes . Anyway off to bed - after I have brushed my teeth rinsed with a cup of my own piss that I have saved.

Have you not set up a rain water system for your toilet yet.  You can even set it up for washing machines you know ;)

Out for a nice ride and half the roads in hertfordshire have been resurfaced leaving all the loose stones on top  😈

(Sorry if this has been posted already but I can't scroll back through 126 pages to check)
So, my latest hackle raiser is people who like to sit in a crowded place and watch bollox on their smartphones, at full volume and don't give a FOC about those in earshot. I remember when people would use earphones ?????
I used to not give a foc, then I discovered Red Bull and now I don't give a flying foc !!!

Leicestershire the same, resurfaced the county roads couldn't be bothered to sweep the loose grit up. Still on the bright side it's filled some of the pot holes they haven't bothered to repair first.

Right now my foccing glasses.  I just popped them off to rub my eye whislt posting in the ZXthou thread.  I dropped em, they bounced off ma desk and fell on the carpet.
Now one leg has gone loose.  Found my reading glasses and had a look.  A wee clip on bit has gone astray that keeps the leg in line.
It cannot have gone far.  It must be here.  But can I find the foccing thing.
Yes dropping small items on the floor and not being able to find me.  It cannot be far away but I can't find it.

Needing to wear your glasses to see what's wrong with your glasses :)


What doesn't get on my goat - riding through Glencoe, Rannoch Moor, Rest and Be Thankful, and more. Just got back after 1500 miles round trip. Awesome  :D

This site on my iPad  :\
For some reason whenever I go back a page the screen resets to the top of the page rather than where I was, so I have to scroll down and find where I was again.
Foccing annoying it is, and it’s the only site that seems to do it to me.  :groan

If you have a vacuum cleaner with hose attachment, put a J-Cloth or similar over the end of the hose, then push the "hard floor" brush (the rectangular one) over the end of it.

Run this over the area where the bit was lost and it will be sucked up into to the tube, but it'll stop at the J-cloth which will let the air through, but not the bit, then switch off, holding the end of the tool over a bowl or similar.

Sorted :thumbup

Ferrys!
ok so first time ever I have been over to France on a ferry (Brittany ferry Plymouth to Roscoff & return)
why do bikes get loaded first then unloaded last?
ok I understand we go on upper car deck as lower is for trucks etc but to let all those cars off before the bikes is mental.. the car deck was full of fumes choking bikers that don't have any air filtration whilst cagers sit there happily revving their engines!
yes it was good how they had all the straps ready etc but surely they should be on an inside lane so unloading would be quicker..

but it was nice to meet lots friendly bikers / motorcyclists 
It ain't what you ride, it's who you ride with!!!
