  1. I'm not sure this is credible: "Of course, while cheaper cars would be welcomed by U.K. consumers it would lead to more cars on the road, increasing congestion and reducing the U.K.’s economic competitiveness." Cheaper cars are already available in the UK, they are generally known as "used" or "pre-owned". The decision to buy and drive a car is based on a perceived need for that form of transport, which only very loosely related to the price of new cars. A more likely outcome is more existing drivers being able to afford to drive a newer less polluting vehicle which is a good thing for the environment.
  2. All this will soon be moot. On the news this morning - new EU regulation - all cars sold from 2022 to contain technology to read speed signs and keep said car within the posted limit. The UK intends to implement this ruling. (maybe I'm on the wrong thread...)
  3. Why do I keep reading this as "Electric Cow Caller"? Probably shouldn't shoot these either...
  4. Very few around Fife/central Scotland. Can't remember the last time I saw a bunch on the verges at the side of the road in the headlights - used to be a pretty regular sight. On the other hand I did see some very young ones in the park 2 mins from my house a few months ago - so maybe...
  5. My late mother-in-law got one of these calls - "We scanned your computer and it's loaded with viruses and malware" After 20 minutes of "oh that's awful" "what should I do" "could you help me" "how much will it cost" she finally got to "I don't have a computer, does that make any difference?" click, brrrrrrrr
  6. Would you say it's a good investment to start dogs on some of this stuff before they start to show issues?
  7. I guess actually firing the thing is taking it a bit too far... https://www.yourlocalguardian.co.uk/news/13337352.Lethal__Pair_brought__camouflaged_hunting_rifle__to_Chessington_World_of_Adventures/
  8. Not necessarily the case: https://www.gwpharm.com/healthcare-professionals/sativex®-delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol-and-cannabidiol-eu-nabiximols-usa Since CBD oil is now readily available in the UK we can assume that those going to the trouble of importing product from Canada etc at great expense feel they require the "good stuff".
  9. Mac, my previous lab was 11 or 12 when he went overnight from a manic Frisbee chaser to a whimpering wreck who could barely move without yelping in pain. The vet said it was most likely arthritis and put him on steroids and pain killers and he recovered to the point that he still enjoyed life for another couple of years at his own pace without further treatment until the cancer got him. The insurance company still got the better end of the deal...
  10. Some discussion on the VW "scandal" I found interesting: https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2015/09/23/crucified-by-uncle/ https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2016/06/21/measuring-cost-vw-cheating-scandal-far/ https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2017/07/25/vw-exec-plead-guilty-non-crime-faces-169-years/

    CBD

    My daughter uses CBD Brothers Blue Edition to apparent good effect for her epilepsy ~£130 for a 100ml bottle. From the leaflet that came with it I worked out a 1ml dose gives 50mg of CBD so I guess that equates to 5% I agree with SSS above that quality is what matters. Since it's a largely unregulated market there are undoubtedly plenty of people jumping on the bandwagon with me too products which may not actually have much of the good stuff in them. You can buy synthetic CBD in crystal form from China, dissolve it in some hemp oil and Bob's your uncle - but maybe not the same properties as something cold pressed from the plant and including some traces of other possibly helpful compounds (entourage effect).

    Absolutely, As long as we also have equal freedom of speech for those who would inform us of what life would be like under sharia law. Ideally followed by a one-time national referendum as to whether any such parallel legal system should be allowed to exist anywhere in the UK.
  15. Thanks Guys, I will probably sign up for a lesson or two at some point & would be happy to join in fun days when I'm free on the appropriate day. Fifegun has invited me to join him at Cluny and I intend to do so soon. Cheers Mike
