You should practice more then. I make an awesome bacon and cheese omelette. No beans though, especially old ones.

When you forget that it is cup day and plan your day around needing the following:

LPG for the central heating,

Fuel for the car

A prescription

Several reams of paper in order to work

And you set put merrily full of good intent and then it hits you. Everywhere is closed. ON A TUESDAY!!! grrrrrrrr

All I know about horses is that the French eat them. This should be encouraged.

Check through your code. I think there may be a syntax error

D'ya know for years this kind of thing wound me up but now I just go with the flow. If customer service sucks, who cares. If no one else does why should we

It doesn't really bother me, I just ignore it all going on around me, carried on with my lunchtime browsing then went back to work. I'm earning my money, not my problem or my business what the rest of them do!!
