Re: Top ten Trumps

On last week's episode (it's a Soap, innit?) apparently he was nonplussed as to why he was getting negative press from the Press.

This, from the 'Master of PR' and some such bovine ordure.

Infantilism gone mad.

Re: Paypal Account Fees

Re: Confession Time

Thank you for confessing, ye faithful How do the distances cycled and canoed compare? That is the question :wink: A canoe is rather more leisurely - imagine a 25" fixed gear. Very tiring on the arms for those of us who don't do it very often. I have done it for a couple of hours at a time, onc...

Re: Great Helmet Design
