*Gramophone style, is that better?
Been a member of another forum, alternative name might be "Teepee". Hells teeth, but there are some opinionated nasty pieces of work on there.Actually I may well never return.
At least I have never been verbally abused by folk here, I know it gets heated on occasion, but generally under control.
Long may it remain so.
The brands I've come across are:
Costa Del Mar
£10 Jobbies from Boots
What do you prefer - Glass, CR39 or Polycarbonate; normal, polarized or photochromic?
I'm looking for a leather travel wallet to store my passport and boarding card in. I've seen Bellroy travel wallet but is quite expensive. Any suggestions?
Had a look and drive of a Ford Focus ST Sport this afternoon. The only slight concern is boot space: No bigger than the Alfa. But you get a lot of car for the money. Staggering performance for the money.
Now, when it comes to discs, I struggle to see why people pay more £5 to buy the majority of films - there are very few films that I will sit down and watch more than once and, that being the case, I much prefer to rent from lovefilm (as that works out at £2.50 a film). I realise that humans are driven by an urge to "collect" things, and I have a largish DVD collection. Some films I've never even watched once. For that reason, I made a decision not to follow suit when I moved to blu-ray.
I'm thinking about buying a mattress this year as mine is getting on a bit, i would like a metal free foam mattress with memory foam topper, ive seen on the telly a dormeo memory foam mattress 12+2 greatly reduced in price but i'm not sure if it will be any good or not, i've also looked at bensons for beds & i've quite fancied one of the sensaform mattresses, are their any others i should consider ???
Appreciate any help, but i want one that is metal free.
I have just ordered this Blu-ray set from the BBC online shop for £17.49 (free postage).
Very pleased as Amazon are charging £24.99 for the same thing.
I have owned the 'House of Cards' trilogy on DVD since it first came out and I am lucky it hasn't worn out yet! (I play it in it's entirety at least once a year.)
thanks for those of you who contributed towards my survey as part of my research for this,
