  4. Supermarkets

    I'd thought I'd resist as this is so far away from the once legendary DTS Friday polls as you can probably get ....but I guess we've all got old! So, where do you purchase your weekly shop? Used to be Tesco for me (only as its the nearest), but I'm a recent Lidl convert. Genuinely like the...

  6. Supermarket own-brand beer

    Biere de Belgique at ASDA is as good as any other canned lager (apart from the Polish ones) in my opinion. £3.80 for 4x500ml is good value and it has a good belgian style - hints of both stella and leffe, but very sessionable. Any other recommendations for the frugal and discerning home drinker?

    Tesco superstore on former B&Q site - a big no-no

    According to the front of Southend's Echo (as shown on FB), plans for a new Tesco in Southend are now not going ahead. Wonder if that might affect Sainsbury's need to get their store built? In all seriousness, I don't think it will, I firmly believe they are in too deep now to pull the plug...
  8. Poker Player Ron still will not show his hand!

    Well card playing Ron even after Southend Council's Developement meeting on 10th April will still not show his hand. And we still do not know his opinion or if he will start building soon! :finger: No club statement, all is quiet. As we know the local authority need £1 million up front...

    Tenerife Cost of Living

    I've just come back from 10 days in Tenerife. On the first day my wife and I took a taxi to the supermarket to buy a few bits for lunch. One of the things we bought was 4 5l bottles of water. Each 5l bottle cost 0.79 Euros. How much does the same thing cost here? Also I noticed diesel was about...
