Re: Neverspoons App

I don't get the hate for the brand, many people buy products from horrific companies all over the world who have a history of exploitation and treating staff appallingly yet they are quite happy to spend money on those companies which not only are a much worse moral choice but damages our economy t...

Re: Neverspoons App

One loves it or hates it, the latter in my case, forby I only visited one once, to use the toilets, which of course were hidden (are they accessible for disabled persons?) Hoping for more Neverspoons toilet observations :wink: You hated a world of something after a single visit? Rather reminds me o...

Re: Favourite Museums

Was it not the Bliar regime that scrapped admission charges for many museums? Yes i think it was. Charges to many of londons finest museums effectively a gift of la thatch, a philistine and so many other awful things. So i stopped going, and only returned when they were free again. As i recall the ...

Re: Beards: Why? Why not?

Bit of a long story but many years ago I and another work colleague were helping another female work colleague to run a national conference (she was the organiser, but we were helping with the name badges, coffee in next room admin on the actual days of the conference). Being an environmental/ecolo...

Re: Beards: Why? Why not?

Some years ago Mariella Frostrup said that when a man grows a beard he's showing he's lost all interest in the opposite sex. Surely it is the other way round I do not shave because I do not want to resemble a woman :wink: If not shaving is what stops you resembling a woman you've got major problems.

Re: Does anybody know what this bike might be? Photo of a cheap bike for sale

it could be a 'real' bargain (groan); it looks like it has a TIG welded steel fork, alu frame and a basic 3x7 geartrain. I'm guessing that it is 7s freewheel rather than cassette hub at the rear. If so the first things to give trouble on a bike like that (through mileage alone) will be a worn trans...

Re: Antisocial cyclists

I get waves in return from other boats when I am out in mine. I am very seldom in a motor, but perhaps people in cars are led to be less outgoing? Doesn't that depend on how big and how fast they are? I seldom find myself close enough to wave to the bulk carriers of shipping containers churning alo...

Re: Antisocial cyclists

But surely cyclists are a persecuted group: us against the rest of the world. Solidarity is essential! More seriously, if I am walking down the High St I don't greet people unless hardly anyone around and early in the morning. Walking on a remote hill I greet them. Cycling is a shared activity so I...

Re: Roosevelt. Who am I?

He's promising a lot of new building. Construction companies frequently make donations to the Conservative party. Maybe Nixon would be a better comparison.
