Re: Is it only the British ?

Have you ever noticed that wives often say the exact opposite to what they really mean; just to test us or to give us enough rope...... *yes

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I have had a few watch batteries from Timpson's too. They wanted to sell me the lifetime guarantee about twenty years ago so I have had my money's worth. :)

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I always make 'tea on the boil' and 'coffee just off the boil'. I also like to avoid boiling the water to death when making tea as it spoils the taste, so the fancy kettle makes it easy to set the...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

On the subject of shorter working weeks, disposable income and all that, we made the mistake of wandering into John Lewis on Saturday in search of a new electric kettle to replace our Kenwood which...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I agree with that. You really couldn't make it up. But a Corbyn led government could be even worse if that is possible. :(

At least we do still have a defence industry I suppose.



Well yes;...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

"The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

We have seen that happen many times in the past, but I fear a Corbyn government could take that concept to a...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I agree 100% with your analysis Paul. The concept of working just ten hours a week is perhaps rather too extreme, and would only really apply to manufacturing industry, but the point is well made...

Re: The Farne Islands

With an 'Auld Gits Railcard' on Wednesday you could travel King's Cross to Durham for 23.55, or 54.45 First Class with breakfast included.

Returning the same day it would be 13.85 Standard...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

More recently we had a period of several days when all flights were grounded after the 911 attacks. It was said that average temperatures dropped by about three degrees over the period. However, a...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

We are told that our food, and especially meat production is a major contributor to global warming.

I must admit I am not overly keen on embracing a totally veggie diet but I can see why reducing...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

I remember it well. I was at school at the time and we had regular power cuts as the energy was shared around.

I have hard from several sources that many businesses found that by focusing on the...

Re: 10 Hour Working Week

We always enjoy Wallington, which is a few miles inland from Cragside in the wilds of Northumberland. What a wonderful place to have lived back in the day.

The sea should be fairly calm today but the rain is persisting. I wonder whether Cuthbert had this problem?

If you are looking for somewhere to go in the rain Durham is always worth a visit....
