  1. A bit overpriced is Miele. You can buy a few lesser brands for a fraction of their cost. Having said that they do cheaper ones south of £1000 these days. Not sure how Bosch are these days as I've had my washer for 13 years and had to replace the motor brushes a year or so ago. Also had to totally replace the Bosch dishwasher after 12 years as it wasn't worth repairing. According to my local expert the current Bosch dishwashers aren't a patch on the older ones but the pumps are easier to replace. Nigh on impossible on the older one. He said the washers were still decent but only time will tell.
  2. Is there an internet rule somewhere that I haven’t seen yet that states whenever somebody is disparaging about a motorist that you need to respond immediately slagging off cyclists ? Erm? I'm not slagging off cyclists, I was highlighting the difference in standards. At the beginning of the lockdown the Police were pulling over motorists and turning them around yet cyclists were not. If someone is cycling past a pedestrian are they more likely to transmit infection than somebody isolated in a vehicle? Not rocket science is it? Oh and for your information I have probably spent longer in the saddle cycling than most on here. Although I am unable to do so now.

  4. Inhuman Resources starring ooh ah Eric Cantona as an out of work HR manager put on the scrap heap in his 50s. Quite gripping and tense in parts. Cantona does a commendable job of a desperate middle aged professional thrown on the scrapheap. It also co stars Suzanne Clement who starred in The Forest [Le Foret] which was another good French crime series. How can the Europeans turn out such thought provoking good drama that largely leaves us standing? Perhaps they only manage to sell the good stuff to Netflix and leave their Eurotrash in situ.
  5. The brilliant Jodie Cromer who plays Villanelle in Killing Eve has a small part in this. She lights up the screen in Killing Eve.
  6. I've done two days in the past week of 16/18 off. I tend to be 16 stone or just under first thing in the morning then put on a few pounds during the course of the day. The time between my evening meal and bedtime is a problem as I have had a recent tendency to graze more than normal. Bad weather may help as an afternoon walk can be delayed until after the evening meal otherwise I need to eat before exercise. The hills are steep and plentiful around here and can't be done on an empty stomach.
  7. No, as it was printed on this years calendars sometime last year. It was the promotion of it that I was questioning; the particular day it fell on is irrelevant.
  8. Is just a couple of days a week adequate to get the ball rolling for prolonged weight loss with the 16 off and 8 hours on? Or are we talking about a 7 day a week regime? Has Andrei done this for 7 days/week as opposed to 5 on a normal diet and 2 fasting?
  9. That may be so but there was no warnings to restrict the social gatherings and look at the upsurge in activity since last Friday. It is like a green light has been given.
  10. It makes me think that the promotion of this event was tied in with the breaking of the lockdown and getting us all back to normal regardless of the obvious danger to health. I suspect that once again the British public have yet again been manipulated.
  11. Yes there is that but when you take everything into consideration it is less of a risk than the non existent social distancing which has been occurring for weeks and exacerbated by the VE Day celebrations where many think it was the green light to let their guard down. Also as I mentioned earlier the amount of cyclists on the road in groups and otherwise seems to have grown. There are many who haven't been on a bike in 20 years by the look of them.
  12. Seriously what is the problem with people going out for a drive? At least they are isolated from the general public in their vehicles unlike cyclists.
