  1. Haha cheers Ghana. I broke my phone...or another one of my phones... I think I'm on my 4th this year? and this one also has rubbish memory, so I have no FOC app... and I've been so busy that sitting down on my laptop to chill is quite rare.... But of course I've got plenty of time to spare at the moment... I'm doing paperwork for the VAT return...due in 1 day and 1 hour.... *D'oh* #procrastination!
  2. righty rooty tootie fruity..... I like coming here to say howdie to everyone, what have I missed... everyone well alright?
  3. Jamie, exactly as Clive said, Omeprazole. I believe the last time I saw the witch doctor he mentioned something about them being available over the counter now (so not even sure if you need a prescription). I had a problem a few years back with an acid reflux feeling, I tried all the usual anti acid tablets and they were rubbish, popped the Omeprazole, (said Om-ep-ra-zol) and took them for a month probably, and that was that.... I actually ran out for a little while and my symptoms didn't return... about a month ago I had a nagging sore throat and they thought that could be a link to acid again, so went on them again for a month and all seems alright... (I think...). I'll probably head down the pharmacy and see if I can grab some more as they are always handy to have knocking about just incase...
  4. Hahaha ^^^ Trump vs Clinton.... Honestly this has got to be the biggest mud slinging election ride in the US for a long time. I don't actually know whats scarier though... I mean Trump should never have got anywhere near the 'Presidential candidacy', but the fact he's doing as well as he is doing is quite scary as it's surely a testament to how awful Clinton is.. Also the double standards are ridiculous... Trump is an outspoken a-hole of course, but hearing the people how the Clinton supporters bash Trump about his talking about women is incredible considering the things Clinton said about the women and her hubby.... Most favourite dig at Trump though:
  5. Tbf that corsa stuck in the barn is actually quite impressive.... Who knows, could have been a Ford driver removing a corsa from the roads...
  6. .....So really... Vauxhall messed up and stuck a vauxhall badge on a Renault Trafic.... then this guy comes along, debadges the incorrectly badged renault and rebadges it with another incorrect badge... Funny thing is, it has "renault" stamped on the panels!
  7. See the wipers thing annoys me to some extent, but unless it's some bell ringer trying to rip one off, the simple action of lifting a wiper normally won't do the car any harm - again I know that is not really the point, you're touching someone else belongings which is the issue. I wouldn't have too much of an issue if I found my wiper up, obviously I'd do a look around and see if anything is messed up... I did however have some complete **** stick a chicken bone under my wiper once.... again I guess that would do no harm, but I could have killed that person! But standing on a car roof >.< scratches from stones on shoes... dents... scuffs...
  8. On the topic of ball bags... I don't like the two that decided to jump on car roofs outside of our place the other night (at midnight)... I watched one of them fall off (unfortunately he didn't break his neck)... I phoned 101 and they sent 'a unit', I trotted down the road to see if I could spot the guys and saw the police had stopped them already. Another police unit came and had a look at the two cars, neither of which had damage (although ones roof was 'popped in' I guess you could say)... I think they just took their details and that was that... Would rather they gave the two jumpers a quick beating with the batons and perhaps a taze or two then sent them on their way... Real morons tbh. I get that being drunk and clowning around has it's fun and sure the cars didn't look damaged, but just that sort of senseless moronic actions gets me raging... it's painful enough when you come out to your car anywhere and there is a mark on it that you weren't the cause of without it being caused my someone jumping on your blooming roof!!!!!
  9. Hahaha, "no, not just alcohol!" love it! I guess also, your environment and stress levels probably are another thing that's playing havoc with you... by environment I mean work as you clearly don't enjoy it there! I guess this probably leads to a bit of general low moods. I hope you can find something you enjoy soon buddy. Best of luck at the quacks!
  10. Hmmmm, poor you Jamie.... Get in ya veggies, drink plenty of fluids and cut out smoking ;) Generally, not just cos you're unwell. Of course, it's up to you and you might have tried lots of things... I just find some friends who smoke are fit as fiddles, others are plagued with every lurgy under the sun....
  11. That's the drug I was thinking of a while ago. It gets used quite a lot with ageing hounds and they love it.... or at least my sisters german shepherd used to love it, he'd get excited when he saw it and used to wait to eat his food until it was put in! Glad Brandy has it! Should do her lots of good!
  12. >.< and healthier too Lenny! Of course I know you could be struck down with some unforseen affliction at any point in your life, but seriously drinking way over the odds of caffeine and sugar sure isn't good for you!
  13. It's rare I'll have a drink on my own, sometimes if my wifes away and I've got a takeaway I might have a beer, watch a load of rubbish and eat rubbish... but it's rare she's away, so it rarely happens... and tbh, it's more me wallowing around not knowing what to do, more than me wanting one! haha... For me really it's a lack of spare cash, I don't really have anything spare at the moment... so a bit of a blow out every other month is sort of where we're at... and even then, we probably shouldn't bother... We are building up a fairly massive wine store though, my parents give us a bottle or two every time they come and visit, we still have a load from our wedding, other pressies etc. hahaha...
  14. I think it's 'forever' however if they have a sort of quantity for sale and you choose your quantity then maybe it's got a time limit... And yeh, 3 goes and your out, it's a bit of a pain, but then again, I do like to throw people silly offers when their buy it now price is ridiculous... :D
  15. It's weird actually, I used to be the sort of person who'd go out for a drink every saturday etc... now I rarely drink... We've got local friends in bands and we go watch them and have a few drinks, or a few too many, but I am actually pretty wary about not having a drink during the week.... I've got some nice cold beers in the fridge, but the problem is, if at the end of the day I have one, I'll probably want another... so that's 2... then if tomorrow is a 'harder' day than today, then I SHOULD have another couple tomorrow, then if the following day is less hard, well, might as well enjoy having one or two whilst I'm not stressed.... What I'm getting at is that it's very easy to think up excuses as to why I should have a drink. Wife and myself opened a bottle of red with dinner last night.... still have about a quarter bottle left.... Could be used for cooking :D .....saying that, it's been a busy day so far.... might be tempted to pour myself a glass... >.<
