I tend to only use cash for small puchases like drinks in a pub, using cards for that is overkill. We have here an excellent money manager program called Ace Money into which goes every single puchase we make, be it cash or card. It has an app for the phone which allows you to photograph the receipt (useful if you lose it) and upload the data into the program.

Using this, we know EXACTLY how much money is in all our bank accounts, plus cash in our purses, right down to the last penny.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

When I come to visit my parents and within 5 mins I enter an argumentative war
Random voltage fluctuations
Being a "ladies man" although being only one of two men in a group of 10 girls (5 from Aspen and 5 from Iceland) is really frustrating at times. Reason why is because when I want to explore for light fixtures I either can't or 1-5 of the come (some of the places I explore involve danger and they hate it)

Be thankful it's only the front wheel and not your back... I know someone who wasn't as lucky.

@F96T12 DD VHO, haha... as someone that has gone through being a "ladies man," I personally enjoy
it. Even if they were to get in the way of quests for new lighting... which in my case, has never happened.
@Homebrewlamps, yeah getting hit by a car while being on a bicycle seems to be becoming a little more
common. I'm glad you're alright bro. Things could have been much worse.

When football completely takes over the main BBC1 terrestrial channel (World [censored] cup). Why do they feel the need to totally screw up the scheduling for [censored] football..? Not everyone is passionately interested in Egypt v Uruguay, thanks all the same. Besides, there are dozens if not hundreds of little used digital channels out there that they could put the football on without ruining it for the rest of us  Angry Undecided

Money... football is exceptionally lucrative for the broadcasting companies. Im not interested either.

I guess some people feel the same way about how between 7pm and 9pm most days between ITV and BBC1 all you have is soaps. Has Pat Phelan been done in yet?

I'm not saying they shouldn't show football, but why do they have to take over the main prime channel..? Can't they set up a dedicated channel for sport..? The red button, maybe..? I switched on at 1pm for the news, only to be presented with Egypt v Uruguay  Undecided

Personally, I rarely watch live TV any more, except for the news. I tend to either record stuff or watch it on the BBC Iplayer or Demand 5 or wherever. The beauty of the latter is they strip out all the adverts..! Grin

All the shows I watch are still on tv, just later because of the football. So although I couldnt care for football Im not really bothered about the football being on live tv. It would be nice if it was on its own channel but football lovers May not like soaps and stuff or what ever else is on bbc but they still pay a tv licence like we do too.  So deserve their moneys worth.

One good thing they could do with doing is putting the football on ITV at about 4pm to knock those absolutely dire dire quiz shows off the tv that have long run their course. Ive hated those since day 1!

I get what you're saying Danny, but what annoys me is the mucking about with the scheduling. I'm used to the lunchtime news being at 1pm, I don't expect it to be unceremoniously moved an hour earlier to cater for football. Put football on the red button or somewhere, then those that want to watch it can do so without disturbing everybody else.

I dont even watch the news its just doom and gloom. And sport! Think the last time I watched that was when I lived back at the parents.

Got the dreaded tennis coming soon which usually over runs the bbc. The tennis annoys me.
