  1. I suppose in the late 50s, things were still scarce or expensive (relatively speaking) and frugallity was a way of life. Dad was probably only earning about 10/- a week back then as a GPO engineer. As I wrote in the what are you eating thread, tinned sardines on toast for tea was a rare treat, and dripping on toast was a breakfast favourite, too.
  2. In the days of the older tinfoil tubes, my father would take a knife handle to the bottom of the tube and squeeze all the contents towards the top...then the flattened bottom of the tube would be rolled as tight as possible up to the remaining contents. With the newer plastic tubes, although you can still move the remaining dregs up to the top, the tubes won't stay rolled up. Pretty sure you used to be able to buy a 'key' to do this....rather like an elongated sardine tin key.

    Many old nymphos exhaust you... TIRED.
  4. A whole lot of beautiful, fresh seafood from the supermarket here on the Algarve. So that's food taken care of for the next few days. Absolutely blistering sun as we stepped off the plane...far better than the rain we left behind. It's great to be back!

    People like a yearly salary... WAGES.
  7. Cousins do small drill bits...and you may need to re-tap the thread if you do manage to drill out the broken bit. https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/hss-drill-bits However, some drill chucks won't grip a really tiny drill, so you may be better off with something like this...and using a Dremel type machine. https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/jewellery-drill-bits
