  • Tony Benn - former MP
  • Peter Sallis - actor
  • Dame Vera Lynn - singer, songwriter, & actress
  • HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - Phil the Greek

Home insurance renewal time.

Renewal quote from Lloyds TSB = £811.44
Quote from Post Office via the Meerkats = £230.06
Lloyds can fuck right off!

Also they let you choose which Meerkat you want now :-)

Stopped off in Skegness. What a nice understated, tasteful little resort it isn't. Talk about taking tacky to a new level.

It also seemed to be over supplied with tattooed, skinheaded, Staffie equipped retards with aggressive expressions and seriously ugly, obese, lycra-clad women.

The whole place had a vaguely threatening air about it. Makes Brighton look like a cultural paradise.

Insulated cab screens

From Taylormade, keep warmth in at night, out in the day, and hopefully banish condensation inside. They do fit nicely and in spite of a lack of instructions, easily!

I remember these, first PO van I was ever issued.

All that raw power! Rev until the valves bounce then drop the clutch in and it would tear away like... like... well like an 1100cc van on 2 star petrol. We were never convinced the PO provided anything more potent than half-a-star though :-)

How times change

Hard to imagine the PO being so progressive but even harder to imagine its successors doing something like this today.
