Re: Panic buying, hoarding

I went to my local Tesco on Monday early evening; car park was only around 10% full There was no need to queue going in either, although a ominous looking gang of youffs - five teenage boys stood around the entrance smoking and some chavy jeering a bit at passing customers. I would of thought Plod w...

It had a fair retail ending.

Reports emerging from Russia suggest there have been 2 deaths there so far related to the Corona Virus outbreak:

One was an 80-year-old man with underlying problems and the other was the journalist who reported it.

Re: Panic buying, hoarding

Living out in the countryside over 10 mile away from any big supermarket i tend to buy bread 3 loaves at a time - put two in freezer back at home. I only eat wholemeal bread, always have done, not been brought up on the white cotton-wooly stuff. But ever since the Coronavirus crisis and the epidemic...

Re: Spokes; choosing between the 'Big Three'

4) my preference (both technically and aesthetically) is for polished stainless steel spokes Hung on the wall of my garage, is a retired pair of Mavic Cosmos 700c.

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

A pirate goes to the doctor.

"Ahoy there, Doctor, aaarrrr, I'm worried about the moles I have on my back."

the doctor has a look and says, "Don't worry, they're benign."

The pirate replies "Count again doctor, there be ten!"
