You'd let them have crystal.

I'd only give them a chipped mug, or a 'free' Esso glass that's gone all misty through too many trips through the diswasher.


You can afford a dishwasher?

You must be over 40.

I'd've thought by now the resourceful lot at HPC.co.uk would have looked at the TV listings to see what it was all about...

Sky listings just say it's about the credit crunch, and what it means for savings, house prices and jobs. I'd kind of guessed it wasn't about mackerel fishing ;)

Monday 8pm Crunch Time

Tonight's episode (Friday) is about Beating Backache, which funnily enough is another blight of my life!

Sorry didn't read the title, thought he was talking about tonight.
There's no government like no government.
--------------------------------------------------

It is part of the British collective mind-set to be right, people are endlessly arguing, sustaining their need to be right. In Britain it is very much more important to be right than to be nice. So people are rather nasty to each other while pretending to be right, and so their long-term karma is to be found to be terribly wrong. In then olden days, honor and a gentlemanís or gentlewomanís code of conduct was what held up the British edifice of being right but that code is now lacking. So the country will rot and falter.

The trick to being British is to agree to be wrong and make changes now. If you go down the path of righteous-indignation, you will fall as the country falls. The British feel they are very superior so their long-term karma is to become inferior. They will lose their economic status. If you donít feel you are superior, or right, and if status doesnít bother you, the nationís karma wonít bother you at all.

The house for it go in is the extravagance -- and then there is the plumber - do you work in the city? ;)
Current price should never be confused with value.
