    Heinz tomato ketchup

    Low low salt and sugar one is good, I prefer it now, the normal ones tastes far too sweet. Same as giving up sugar in tea, it;s what you get used to!

    Latest stabbing in london

    Awful that a 14 year old lad has been killed in what the police believe is a targeted attack but at 14, why was he driving around London on a Moped? Has the law changed?

    Anyone lease a car?

    Thanks all, I think the six year old policy is mean, it's not like I'm driving around in a rusty MK2 escort with different colours doors and the exhaust hanging off!! It just means I'm forced to sell a perfectly good car and spend even more money on another one! Sounds like leasing is expensive unless you want a small basic car and if I wanted one of those I might as well get a company one! Anyone want to buy a brilliant 530 touring in a few months!!

    Anyone lease a car?

    I currently get a car allowance as I don't think much of the choice of cars in my bracket. Trouble is the car can has to be under six years old and that is coming up so I am considering leasing a car. Any one do it? Any recommendations or advice? My monthly millage varies I guess I do 15k a year or there about but I might end up doing loads less or loads more if things change! Is all servicing usually included? Then you pay a one off fee at the start? Do any include insurance? I live i an expensive insurance area of town! Can you lease cars that are used at a cheaper price? I don't mind it not being new. I want something decent but reasonably economical, BMW 325d or similar would be good, pretty quick but still 40/50 mpg if I am nice to it! Open to other mid performance cars but when I trawl through Autotrader for 2015 /2016 cars I always seem to end back with BMW! No point in leasing a 1.4d focus or similar as I can get one of those as a company car, are there any makes that offer really good deals generally? if I have the cash am I better off sticking with private ownership and buying a 2015 / 16 car that I can keep for 2 or 3 years? My 530D has been great but depreciation, general servicing and the odd servicing expense it has made me wonder if a lease would be a better idea. Sorry for the rambling post

    Rate the last film that you've seen - part two

    Saw a fair bit of the Good Dinosour and what I saw was great, will have to watch it properly. Just watched most of the Jungle Book remake, (I've never seen the original) The CGI was astounding! Worth watching just for for that. I thought they did a great job of it, I just had a look on IMDB and some people really slated it, and the kid. Considering he was probably in a green room for most of it I thought he did OK!
  7. is it all the time? you could turn the electric off and see if it still happens, would at least let you know if it an electrical issue.

    A new way of dealing with scooter thieves.

    They are using something similar, a bit like smart water, they spray the bikers / thieves as they get away then if they arrest them later they are linked to the crime. Google DNA spray.

    Is it better to record ownership just in case?

    Website supported by the police for recording all valuables. https://www.immobilise.com/

    'The boy, who was not wearing a helmet, was admitted to hospital with serious head injuries but later discharged.' Can't have been that serious!

    Is it better to record ownership just in case?

    I was pick pocketed in Athens, Insurance would not cover my phone as I did not have gadget cover. (My mistake, should have read the small print) so I at least tried to claim for everything else. They wanted receipts for everything, I had tickets in the wallet for all the ancient sites (one ticket covered them all) If I was even given a receipt for that when I bought them it would ave been in the wallet with the tickets, which was stolen! They even wanted a receipt for the wallet! Who keeps receipts for these things?! it does seem that you need to keep receipts for everything in case of any eventuality.

    Road resurfacing

    They are resurfacing a section of burngreave road today, for the third time! They did if for the cycling a couple of years ago, then they did it again not long after even though there was nothing wrong with it. Now they are doing it again for no reason what so ever!
