  1. Well, I've been in that situation myself...not for a watch, but for my wallet which contained my driving licence and all cards at the time. What do you do when confronted with a knife. You do what I did and hand it over. Luckily, there was only a tenner in cash in it, but I had to cancel all my cards, get replacements, and explain to the DVLA about my driving licence...it was just a compIete faff and I don't understand those that go out with their whole life in their wallet...multitide of cards, cash etc. I've learnt my lesson and just carry a tenner for a taxi fare, and one card in an RFID safe case to pay for stuff. That's all you need.
  2. Well you can all mock, but when confronted by 3 or 4 'heavies' intent of relieving you of your pride and joy what are you going to do? Yep...I thought so... That's why mine stay safely at home.
  3. I was on the point of banning you there...
  4. While in the garage after installing the new drill and grinder, I was annoyed that I hadn't thought about giving them their own power supplies, and that they were taking up two sockets over the bench. Today, I did something about it. The two tools with no dedicated power supply... ...because they're taking up space on my bench sockets. Time to do something about it! Half an hour later... While I was at, I raised the grinder as it was too low on the bench. I could have made a small wooden table to lift it, but I noticed this little step stool at Screwfix for £4.99. Just the job and saved me faffing about making one. It's good for 150kg so I think it'll support the grinder OK. Just off to Toolstation to get a couple of 10mm x 60mm bolts to fix it to the top.

    SPURS. Sporty people use running shoes... RACED.
  6. Anybody else noticed the new mood icon next to the notification and message icons on the toolbar at the top right of the home page? If you click on it, it allows you to select a mood which then appears on your avatar next to your posts.
  7. Blimey, Dave...I know we both like a bit of yellow, but 'kin'ell, chap... Actually...after a few minutes perusal...I think I like it! Go for it Dave! Yeah!...
  8. I sent a letter to the shop, Let's hope they deliver before I drop.......
  9. I live very near you in Woodley, a suburb of Reading, and I wouldn't wear any of my 'good' watches into Reading town centre....My ex Boss's friend was robbed of his Rolex in a Reading pub/club in the toilet. The gang targeted him, and as he entered the loo, his jacket was drawn down his arms, immobilising them, trousers dragged down so he couldn't walk and the watch snatched...no real violence, but a well practiced attack. I rarely venture into Reading these days, too scary...and if I do, not with a watch on my wrist...not even a cheap Casio...
  10. At my age, I need to be slowing down, not speeding up. I guess telegrams were the equivalent of a text messages back then...Oh, for the days when you sent a request to a company and they replied (by letter) that your purchase would be delivered within working 28 days...
  11. One question...are they 'porno' shorts... As an aside, BooHoo Man where I get most of my stuff these days have a 60% end of season sale on...go on...grab a bargain...https://www.boohoo.com/mens
