Re: What have you just bought?

Booked but effectively bought: MOT and 2yr main service for the car. Normally I do my own servicing but there's no Haynes manual for the Mitsubishi Colt so although I'd be happy to do the interim service (that's air filter, oil filter and oil + general check round) I don't know the details of the main service and the weather's not nice for grovelling round and under a car.

I've put the business with a local family run outfit that I've used for MOT's for a long time and occasional other work. They're very good. Chatting with the boss man it turns out that spark plugs are now not a routine service item!! Well that saves a few pennies.

Do you only have one ear or something?? Or only have one speaker? Because I can't for the life of me understand why someone would prefer Mono over Stereo as it makes no sense what so ever.

Re: What have you just bought?

Polish lager. The price rose from 1 to 1.25 a can a while back, blaming the Euro. Now it's gone up to 1.50, blaming Business Rates and rent increases. At this rate the proposed Minimum Alcohol Price law will have no effect on this brand's cost. Still it's better quality than most of the lager on the market.

Re: What have you just bought?

Samsung Gear VR for my Note 8.

OMFG is so amazing, it's to remember not to move inside the world.

There are a few scary games, and it was fun watching my nieces girlfriend in the world. We had to stand around he to stop he moving to far.

It was fun blowing in her ear.
