  • Supermarket scam or my imagination ?

    About a month ago I bought some Tesco salmon fish cakes. They were very nice with chunks of salmon. They were good the second and third time but today they were mostly potato and I would imagine that the ingredients had been altered to match the contents. I have noticed this on a number of products. They are good when launched and then downgraded into, well, crap !

    Does anyone know if this goes on? Maxwell house coffee was new and improved and tastes like dishwater now. In my opinion.

  • 'Eight out of ten cats'?

    Why is it acceptable to make derogatory remarks about Susan Boyle and other celebrities who can't answer back ? Is it really comedy or bullying ? Why do people find it funny to be offencive about others they consider to be less attractive ? More importantly what do we gain from humiliating other people in the name of entertainment.

  • Do you have one of those can openers that folds the edge in ?

    My one started to leave fine steel shreds behind that could easily tip into the food !

    I am interested to know if other people have had this trouble. (You have to look carefully they are fine shreds like hair.)

  • Wow! Being obese is genetic !?

    Are these the same scientists who tell us that concreting over gardens causes flooding ! I have friends who eat half my food intake and are twice my weight. If you get a sponge and drop it in cement it stops being porous! Who pays these scientists for stating the obvious.! Perhaps they should point out that building new airports does more damage to the globe than leaving on your 2 milli- amp standby light!! What do you think?

  • EBay Question Refusing Parcel.?

    I have sent an item to France but the winning bidder has clearly changed his mind and is refusing to sign for it. If he now says he has not received it I will have to cover the £28 postage cost through Pay Pal

    and return his payment in full. Has anyone else had this problem?

  • Ebay selling question-

    If I have sold an item on EBay but don't trust the buyers dodgy payment method, can I go to second chance offer? Will this mean the original buyer will be stopped from leaving negative feedback and will be replaced by the new purchaser. (1st buyer wants my bank details!) An option I did not give.

  • I have just had Talk Talk on the phone-?

    And she nearly talked my ear off, asking me to sign up to their services they were so wonderful I had to commit right away before they would send me a 'Welcome Pack' What kind of abuse is this? I didn't even want to talk to them! Please lets put an end to this cold calling. Just leave us alone. We are quite capable of reading do we really want some little brain washes teenager from a rip off company chewing our ears off ? I say ban these calls, what do you think?

  • Young motorists-?

    I saw a young man (With a white cap) speeding down our 20pmh road tonight. I did'nt need my speedometer because he was clearly an idiot and had my Son or Daughter been crossing the road they would now be dead. So, I have this great idea I will be putting to my local MP.

    All new motorists have to have at least three 'A' levels before being able to take a driving test. Bearing in mind over 3,000 people each year are killed on our roads, and many more crippled for life! Eliminating the chaves on our roads and most importantly bringing up the level of education. What do you think? Hmmm, I just wonder if this idea will not go down well!

  • Cat Question -?

    My cat is very old (About 16+ human years) Recently he has lost weight and gone off his food. He does not appear to be suffering in any way and now spends most of his time in the garden just sitting and watching. I think taking him to the vet would probably be so traumatic it would just hasten his dying. Do you think it is OK to leave him as she is and while he seems contented. I know I would rather pass away in surroundings I know, rather than from all the anxiety of trips to hospitals! If their were any signs of him being in distress I would of course take him to the vet. What do you think?

  • Broadband without a BT line?

    If I do away with my BT land line can I get a broadband server that does not require me to have the BT line. If so, does it work out any cheaper?

  • Fox Hunting ?

    One morning last year there was a slipper lying in the middle of our lawn. I had seen a fox about and decided to put the slipper in the hedge for him / her to play with. To my surprise not long after I had gone back in the fox ran out with the slipper and

    placed it back where I had found it! I watched the fox return to the hedge ran out and hid the slipper. Sure enough the fox found it and again returned it to the same place. It was a game that the fox enjoyed playing, and we continued over the next month or so,always about 7-30 pm.

    My question is, with intelligence like this, how can anyone find it in their hearts to want to destroy such

    an animal? Sure they have a bad side, but nothing compared to our wickedness. What do you think?
