Bent bumper

Someone's dinged my front wheel arch - didn't notice it until I'd left where ever it happened and as there's no other car can't use the app to report.

Re: Dubai slams rumours about COVID-19 situation in emirate

Re: Covid 19

Re: Covid 19

The distance learning/webinar tech guys must think it's Christmas.

If only there was some sort of easily accessible platform that allowed you to host classes of up to 50 with video calls. Maybe an...
