They feed everything from birds, to insects, hedgehogs, foxes and even fish. Hardly pointless and they don't exactly affect human life.

"Very often people ask us what purpose do wasps serve?
In early summer wasps, like bees, pollinate plants and flowers as they feed on nectar. If we were to eradicate all wasps it would cause more problems than it would solve. So, wasps do serve a purpose and despite being a problem at certain times of the year, they are a beneficial insect. So in the natural world, wasps although irritating to humans, have their role to play."

I think one visits the Emirates now and then. It's more tedious than something I have a problem with. Football to them is about as important as discussing Bake Off or last night's Eastenders is to other people I work with.

I do laugh when they try and ask me to get them tickets though.

Slightly off topic.....

I have a suspected hernia and due to go for a scan etc and then look at an op.

Can I ask why, if you are in such agony at times, why you haven't had an op? Mine is more annoying than painful and I can still walk decent distances - went for a 7 mile stroll yesterday and am going again today - and play golf etc.

Hiatus hernia they won't nessarily operate. I have had mine for about 15 years. In my case I can go months in no pain and then suddenly agony.

Me too. Although it depends.....I can miss a dose if I'm not on the beers and curry.

Losing a bit of tummy would be the ideal scenario but, well, you know, the beers and curry.:angel:

Hernia is a bit of your insides poking through to another bit, it's a catch all term.

Hiatus Hernia is between food and wind pipe, causes reflux and bleeding but not a serious threat (the op would be close to an airway so is more risky than controlling the reflux with drugs)

You likely (as it's common) have an inguinal hernia, in and around the stomach, low risk to repair and can be very painful and restrictive.

foresthillbilly 17-09-2016 05:55 PM

my Vax vacuum cleaner broke down 2 weeks ago. up until then, I've been very happy with it, since we bought it 2 years ago.
Still under warranty, Vax send a replacement.

The new cleaner is absolute dogshite. And the reason ?

recent EU legislation reduced the power of vacuum cleaners to a maximum wattage.
What utter scrotes. Vacuuming takes twice as long with the smaller motor, plus it doesn't pick up as much dust/dog hair/pollen as their previous cleaner did.

Good for the environment ? Not if you have to spend additional time cleaning.

Good for asthmatics, or people with allergies, COPD, or people with toddlers who don't want them crawling in sh1t in their house ?

I want a vacuum that rips the threads from my carpet.

Recommending a restaurant to friends and family because you had an awesome meal there. Then they go and it's not so good for them.

a) restaurant annoying for being inconsistent

b) friends and family listing in great detail all the problems with the meal.

Get a Dyson. My old Dyson died after 7 years stout service. The new one has such a powerful suction I can't do the mats in upright mode as it literally sticks itself to them, the suction is too strong. Fully compliant with the EEC stuff.

Feel your pain. Tried to buy a house and after six months the sellers hadn't instructed solicitors. So I bought something else on the quiet and got a message through from the first lot saying we were 'time-wasting scum'.

It's been soooo stressful. We're not selling our house, we are renting it out. They sent a text promising without any doubt to complete on 26th. We told our tenant she could move in on the 29th... they then say they wanna now complete on the 3rd October.
Then they say we're being unreasonable.

P.S. The previous two completion dates were 9th then 16th September.

The reason they want all these extensions.... they wanna find a place that is suitable for their cat.

I feel like sending Little Al round to see their cat.

When I was in the process of selling my house, I had a family that were keen to buy and made an offer, I came back with a counter offer saying I would sell if they paid it. About a week later, a letter arrived at my house addressed to them. I was so incensed by this I told the agent to tell them to do one

The fact that no Spanish person can pronounce a word that begins with S followed by a consonant without having to put or say an E in front of it.

They can't say Steve, they say Esteve, Espagueti, Escuba diving, and many of us will have heard a Spaniard say "he is estupid". Even the commentator on the football says John Estones (which just sounds like Johnny Stones). FFS is it that hard to drop the E?

Wotsits for girly southern softies

;)


:o When I say i bought a packet I meant the Mrs bought it and I just happened to have a look.

Anyway, once I noticed the travesty of the new Wotsit, I beat the feck out of her for buying some in the first place....just like a true Northern man would. ;)

They can't say Steve, they say Esteve, Espagueti, Escuba diving, and many of us will have heard a Spaniard say "he is estupid". Even the commentator on the football says John Estones (which just sounds like Johnny Stones). FFS is it that hard to drop the E?

My mother's lived in the UK for 37 years and still has this feature in her speech.

It and other pronunciation quirks actually affected my childhood pronunciation of certain words and phrases, up until my teen years I had fantastic pronunciations such as "bank Estatement", "half English half Espanish" (though I would say Spanish by itself just fine), aRAbic, crisps as "crips", and temPERature (I still say this on occasion when referring to having a temperature).

I was a girl in the village doing alright
Then I became a princess overnight
Now I gotta figure out how to do it right
So much to learn and see
Up in the castle with my new family
In a school that's just for royalty
A whole enchanted world is waiting for me
I'm so excited to be Sofia the first

Ner ner ner ner...

I'm finding out what being royal's all about Sofia the first
Making my way it's an adventure everyday Sofia
It's gonna be my time Sofia
To show them all that I am Sofia the first!

Are sure its not your hands that have got bigger? My recollection of Wagon Wheels is that they used to be the size of dinner plates - not now!

Smug, righteous people who try to argue about something they either don't understand, have no interest in or aren't even affected by for the sake of their own self importance.

E-spaña is even more bastardised in Andalucia as they often drop S's and say Epaña or just Panya. I heard this during the Euros, 'Vamo Panya'.

Tu estas bien? is sometimes 'Tuta bien?'.

I was there for a few months before I realized listo had an S in it.

Electrical and white goods manufacturers who purposely make replacing a failed component worth a couple of quid next to impossible or so bloody expensive you've got to buy a new freezer/telly/washing machine etc. Usually happens just after the guarantee runs out.

When I was a kid, Yorkie had 7 chunks- a real proper chocolate bar, now it has 5

World is a much darker place now- cruel..

Gimme my 2 extra chunks back you ****ers

Not being all jingoistic, but wasn't chocolate better when we had, Rowntree Mackintosh and Terry's of York?

then everything went all Nestle and Suchards

When you go out for dinner as a couple and they give you an odd number of items on sharing plates.

Always seems odd that one. 3 rolls in a basket, 5 strawberries on the desert.

Been there done that.

Players who have assisted a goal running off in their own direction and celebrating like they've scored a worldy.

Look at me! Look at me!

Don't let them wind you up, remember if it's a small troll it will be frightened of even the smallest goat

Both baskets in my dishwasher started to rust and the replacement cost was £160 just £20 short of a new machine! This despite it being a generic part across a range of machines.
