Radio 4 Today programme this morning, based at the London Fashion Show. What the fuck for? Endless interviews with vacuous fashion folk talking bollocks. Can't imagine many of the Today audience were the slightest bit interested, despite the oft-repeated mantra about what a huge and important industry for the UK it all is.

Shit, my wife has hacked DL's log-in. Add to the list the fact that they sent a female presenter to front it.

Yeah, I spent a good 20 minutes being irritated by that aspect too. Send one of the Tory boys, ffs. Let's at least enjoy their discomfort.

It's political correctness gone mad!
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

So the pseudo educated R4 listener can pass their ill informed opinions and validate their self importance?

Had the boiler replaced about three months ago. Boiler itself is fine, and we didn't get the full Hive bollocks, but they still gave us a wi-fi controller. First one lasted two days and they replaced it. This one now cuts out after ten minutes. We can't override so no heating and hot water's on immersion. Utterly pointless fucking cheap technological crap. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the wired, mains powered thing we had before.

On the flip side of that, I managed to talk the wife into a Nest when we had our boiler put in, and I reckon I've already saved the £100 it cost five times over by lowering the temperature from my phone without her knowing. :thumbl:

Fucking massive bruises. I have two age-related issues: firstly, I seem to bruise more and more easily these days; secondly my failing memory means I genuinely don't have a bastard clue what I did to acquire the bruise in the first place.

You should check out the bruising - could be edema. Do they sell Revitive over there? May help. Forgetfulness is probably hereditary - write things down. There you are - quackery over the internet!
There will be no end to the problems afflicting humankind until economists become rulers, or, by some miracle, rulers become economists.
