Re: What do you want to vent about today?

... we moved house 18 months ago we sold the old washer and tumble drier as the new house came with brand new items. They both still worked fine and were in good condition. I think the washer had a new belt after about 14 years and that was it. Both were bought by my parents when we got married in ...

Re: Silverstone MotoGP

... took the decision at 4pm but Silverstone wanted to race right up to dusk. I suspect they had been reviewing their insurance and realised they were on a sticky wicket regards paying out for a no race scenario and wanted to avoid this predictacment at all costs.

Re: Wonga no longa

At end of the day they gave people loans who were refused by everyone else due to bad credit. It's crazy to bill someone at 1000% over their initial loan and think they will pay them back!!

Let the kids run wild, didn’t help though. When I came out we were to hungry to even complain.

Re: Bendix MRR

Fitted the pads and although there not even bedded in the brakes are better.

I think some of the pistons were sticking and the old fluid looked cloudy so probably some water in it and a good service has improved things noticeably.

Hopefully when the pads bedded in the braking will be even better.
