    Sounds very similar to when the coil pack went on our car!

    • Yes. If was a diesel I’d suspect a clogged fuel filter due to the cold weather, but that’s unlikely with petrol.

    @nutter You’re absolutly correct to compare it to addiction.

    Its all about addiction to food. It’s our environment making us unhappy which makes us eat. It’s the reward chemicals the food ‘industry and manufacturers’ are loading the food with. It’s the constant bombardment by advertisers that push us to eat when we are not hungry.

  • robert replied to the topic Does acupuncture work? in the forum Health 1 month, 1 week ago

    Whilst undergoing physio for a thumb problem the physio asked if he could try acupuncture, being open to new things I said yes (paid for the session anyway). He put needles in my hand around the area then did some in the other hand to “balance the flows”

    After my thumb felt great, no pain at all. For about 30 minutes then it was back to being…[Read more]

  • robert replied to the topic How do you buy a car? in the forum General Chat 2 months ago

    I bought a car in September.

    I did a bit of research on-line/ What-car magazine, arranged for a test-drive, asked them if they could match the What-car ‘target price’. They asked me if I was going to buy any add-ons (gap insurance, tyre insurance, resin bodywork protection etc etc), I told them ‘no’. They asked for £300 over the target price, I…[Read more]

  • Ultimately we will all be replaced be technology as a combination of AI and present programmed machines.
    Driving we all know is doomed.
    Supermarket checkouts are 90% self service now, it’s only a matter of time before all shops are the same.
    A lot of manufacturing is done using CNC machines.

  • You have my sympathies.
    To get rid of it:
    Don’t eat anything for 24 hours. Only clear fluids – water, black tea and coffee. Vodka doesn’t count.

    Wash your hands a lot especially before eating. Wipe surfaces like door handles with disinfectant. Wash towels and bedding on 60 degrees.
    Good luck.

  • The NHS should not have to be where the buck stops. From the moment a reveller/binge drinker takes their first beverage to the point where they become at risk there were occasions where this could have been addressed.

    I realise that people pre-load with alcohol before going out for the night but shouldn’t pub and bar staff stop selling…[Read more]

  • Should have had these years ago.

    Maybe the Police could use their powers as well to curb drunkenness?

  • robert replied to the topic Cataract Surgery in the forum Health 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    I’ve had cataracts removed from both eyes recently. Surgery was over in probably 15-20 minutes. Not painful. No bending face down or anything strenuous for a few weeks – not worth it in case you cause damage. Watch out for your car insurance though. I was totally confused by everyone’s stories (next day to three months!) so spoke to my insurance…[Read more]
