In My Own Words:
THE SINKING SHIP IS MY SPIRITUAL HOME in that everything I touch, attempt, invest in, or recommend to family and friends immediately plummets to the muddy depths and fast becomes barnacle pocked.

One of the finest of all human experiences is to rush into a Funeral Parlour, throw yourself to the floor and shout "Shop!" It sure beats making an apple strudel or watching 'Question Time'. In fact stab… Read more

Hypothalamia causing involuntary paradoxical undressing, which I successfully used as a defence when charged with streaking at my local WI Annual Meeting, tightrope walking, traducing squirrels, trekking in the foothills of Calais, wearing sackcloth … Read more

Kärcher WV70 Window Vac - Window Cleaning Vacuum K&hellip by Kärcher
5.0 out of 5 stars SPARKLING CLEAN WINDOWS, 16 July 2014
Only recently purchased but already after a couple of try-outs we are very impressed and pleased with this Cleaning Kit.

Might be considered a bit on the pricey side but after experiencing the Karcher Window Vac we have no regrets whatsoever.

And all you do is get rid of the container after use......making sure not to incur the wrath of 'her… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars WILL LESSONS BE LEARNT?, 15 July 2014
The emphasis of this excellent financial diary is mainly confined to the frantic attempts between 2008 and 2010 by the UK Treasury to stave off the bankruptcy of major parts of the banking industry which would have caused untold havoc, misery and hardship to the economy.

It takes the reader on the roller coaster stress loaded white knuckle ride of Alistair Darling, The Chancellor, his senior civil servants and government team, myriad of Investment Banker advisors, and, of course the inevitable teams of lawyers, in their frantic efforts to stabilise the financial system. It is gripping stuff that puts the reader in the front stalls of this, perhaps one of the most critical… Read more
