Unfortunately goodlife , a lot of Brits like myself , didn't actually get any of that Cheddar that Lidl's sold because it was gone within a few hours . I t would have been great if they'd taken notice of the email campaign and decided to stock it as a regular item , but they didn't ; neither does an...

Novinite asks "What Will 2012 Be Like for Bulgaria?

I'm not sure what I reckon , but the Novinite journalists outlook for 2012 is a bit gloomy at best !

The report also states that Bulgaria is amongst the lowest for 'cannabis abuse' althogh I'm not sure what they mean by 'abuse' (my idea would be spilling it all over the floor ) , so where does it all go ? I guess that Bulgaria has a hidden export ! It's no surprise that heroin is being trafficked t...

MW labelling has a long way to go everywhere , but as far as cheese is concerned I want to be buying the real stuff !!! I don't want Danish Feta , its rubbish , and I do want real mature English Cheddar , not an imposter . Tim .

I've always done my own route planning , from looking at good old fashioned maps , I don't believe in sat-nav , it gives you the opportunity to blame something else when you get lost ; which in my experience can often be the best part of the journey , although not always ! Anyway when's that new tun...

Well I suppose that if the Council were stupid enough not to notice they should pay , in reality the majority of council taxpayers money gets wasted on consultants (mostly ex-council employees) and constantly changing offices (when they'd only been in the old office for a couple of years and the new...

This is a great thread , particularly as not much else is going on in winter , but we're all on a learning curve here , so advice & experience is more helpful than rocket science . In my experience all chimneys are affected by the weather (perhaps a really well designed one isn't , I've no experienc...

Er well , technically they haven't been refused , like all countries wishing to join the Euro , they have to meet certain quite stringent fiscal criteria first , before being allowed to join ; something which most Eurozone countries actually failed to do , but were still allowed in anyway (wonder wh...
