    Tesco's fruit .

    All our local food shops were driven out of business by the advent of supermarkets because the local shops cannot compete with the buying power of the big stores. I agree that the quality of the fruit and veg that our local supermarkets sell leaves a lot to be desired. Vic.
  2. The last time I had a stain on my action I went to the doctors. Seriously though try WD40, it's surprising what that will shift, on your gun I mean. Vic.
  3. I am not suggesting that they are but the spare on the new Defender looks much more attractive being very large and all new shiny alloy. Vic.
  4. I saw my first new model Land Rover Defender today. It is huge and seems to be about the size of a Ford Transit, I don't see many of them being bought by our local farmers in Lincolnshire for farm work like a poorly sick farm animal going to the vets. The spare wheel is mounted on the back door and looks right for stealing or vandalising as it is not in a cover. Vic.
  5. What are the 'minor' issues of which you speak? Vic.
  6. Yes I have seen several in wheelchairs mostly shooting skeet and DTL and shooting sporting where the ground is fairly flat. I used to shoot with one guy who only had one arm, he held the stock under his armpit while reloading, he was a good shot too. Vic.
  7. The picture that I saw in the paper today made himself look extremely unwell, haggard and drawn. Here's hoping for a full recovery at least as much as a 99 year old can make. Vic.

    Yet another scam

    A lot of phones these days automatically reject 'Withheld' calls or people will not answer them. Our doctors calls to patients do this and then they wonder why they don't get an answer. When I mentioned it to them they said that this had been mentioned several times before. Vic.

    It's the first of the month so it's 'White Rabbits' time again. On the first of every month you should say 'White Rabbits, White Rabbits, White Rabbits' while turning round three times. This for continuing good fortune. At any time if you see a magpie assume it is male and greet him as follows, 'Hello Mr Magpie, how are your wife and children?' Again to avoid bad luck. Anyone know any more? Vic.
  10. Thanks for all your replies folks, very helpful. Vic.
  11. Do any of the PW collective have any idea what altering existing wills costs these days, my wife and I want to make alterations to ours? We have spoken to a couple of solicitors offices but can't get any kind of answer without making an appointment which presumably means you will be charged for. We know that there are several charities offering free will writing in exchange for a legacy but could that could finish up costing the same in the end but at least the charity gets something out of it. Vic.
  12. They get my vote too, probably available from Military Surplus Stores. Vic.
  13. Unless I have misunderstood the type of printer you need you can get a printer for a tenth of what you quoted. Locally I could get a printer/copier/scanner for that money and sometimes it is cheaper to buy a new printer for less than the cost of replacement ink cartridges but be warned, new printers usually come with cartridges that are less than full. Vic.
  14. I too use Windows Defender and have done since the advent of Windows 10. It appears to work very well, is updated automatically, it scans automatically and is not invasive. Reviews of its efficiency are generally favourable, it suits me. Vic.
  15. Is your left hand side next to the kerb, if so you could be parked in a cycle path which is an offence. It is not an offence if the white line is broken into dashes. Cycle paths are usually marked by painted signs in the road. Vic.
