    Serious question, I'll say why later - how much is your home insurance? Mine is based on a simple 3 bed semi + contents.

    Made to measure shirts.

    I have a lot of trouble buying work shirts. To borrow a phrase from Quadrophenia most shirts with a 17.5" neck are ****ing rent-a-tents and I am reasonably slim in an extra-medium kind of fashion. I am considering getting some shirts made to measure and there a few online companies offering...

  10. Occupy London

    I was quite impressed by the number of tents outside St Paul's this morning but is anyone else puzzled as to why the main event was scheduled for a Saturday?
  11. Thanks from Saturday

    If you are reading this, to whoever handed in a red train pass holder after the Burton game on Saturday, thanks a lot. The fact that all the contents including money and a bank card were still in place was a highlight on an otherwise miserable day.

    Which food and drink gives you the smelliest farts? I have experienced some foul smells over the years. One of the worst was simple but effective. That was baked beans on toast for breakfast and Guiness all night. For me the standard Indian does produce a cheeky chorus of brutality. The...

    Question Insurance Renewal Quotes...

    This baffles me a little and wondered if anyone could shed any light on it... I got my home contents renewal from Direct Line telling me that my premium had gone up from £32 to £55 (no claims, nothings changed etc). I then headed towards a couple of comparison websites and saw that £55 was not...
