One official lady keeps looking at her watch, must be the keep on schedule person?
That'd be Prince Charles.

Charlie's good on tour, for my money every bit as good as his dad. When he came to our neighbourhood he sat down with the kids in the Chili For Children program at Albert Scott just down the road and ate deer chili with the kids. He's not chaperoning this one though.

I drive to my daughetr's house 5 miles away a few times daily. Without exception I see at least one vehicle with defective lights.. each way.

Replacing a light isn't expensive, difficult or time consuming.

Don't these idiots realise that in addition to seeing where you're going, it also tells people where you are.

The police don't seem to give a damn. What do we pay them for?

Rant over.
Yikes.

Or the opposite. Morons driving with their highbeams on a busy road in the city. Its like going blind!

No, me neither, is it as good as you hoped it would be Becks? My husband thinks Halifax is great, and even suggested we move there...I'm not sure I'm ready for more of the same, just with a lot more people thrown in. Have one for me

The M on my keyboard has no obvious issue - it doesn't 'feel' any different when pressing it like the space bar on a previous keyboard did when it went 'funny', there's no resistance or anything but every now and then the M doesn't come out on screen.

Sounds like a vitamin M deficiency, try taking a few M&M in the morning and a few before bed time


If that fails try pushing the key really hard with ya thumb till it clicks
