    Are you worried yet.

    My mum 90 yes old had first on December 14th and second on Jan 5th on Wirral. Her mood has definitely cheered up since then. Maybe time to venture into the world again, lockdown rules permitting! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Home schooling.... again

    Insurance recommendations..

    As above, try AIB as Maserati friendly and Adrian Flux. Interestingly I had a conversation with my insurers about no claims bonus. I had two cars, both with 11yrs NCB, I sold one about 11 months back and didn't renew the insurance. I called them for an NCB proof letter - no problem (Performance...

    QP6 for 17k

    Nice but high mileage. Which wouldn't normally worry me but service if I remember should be every 12,500 miles so should have at least 6 plus stamps. Or am I wrong? So if insufficient attention to service maybe other stuff missed? But still alot of car for not much cash. Sent from my ONEPLUS...

    So my new scales arrived, good old Amazon prime, impressive delivery time - next day. Scales look good, bit smaller and lighter than my outgoing Withings scales so probably won't use them for weighing car parts such as wheels and exhausts etc... Set up with App is quick and worked first time...

    Advice please - do you think main dealer service history matters?

    Easy check (if you don't mind follow up emails) check the value with we buy any car, first with full dealer history, and then without - will give you an idea. I'd go with basic dealer, all else indie for next 2 years then indie for all else after that. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Are you worried yet.

    Evening constitutional around Llandudno this evening. With an older than average local population we 'get' the message. 19:15 on a Saturday night and the streets are deserted. So sad to see. Nothing open, nobody out. No people, no cars, no kids on corners. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Office Coffee Machine

    One of the 'variables' is your local water supply! The only way to reliably compare coffee or tea to find your ideal is to use a bottled water to at least get a repeatable result. Anyone tried Swedish boiling coffee? You don't get easier! Flat bottom glass flask (Pyrex or similar) coarse ground...

    Are you worried yet.

    Those are numbers in circulation for sure. And another positive is that it's likely you would get up to 90% from the first jab, the second jab is the 'insurance' shot. But....... the overall effectiveness of the vaccine in a large population must be less. There will be folk that react badly...

    Are you worried yet.

    Question: once you have had vaccine what sort of exemption would that give you from continuing swab test? This is a genuine question as I'm not sure how this would work as the vaccine will never be 100% and I've not seen confirmation yet that it breaks the carrier chain? So it is likely that...

    Sale or Return experience with a London based company

    The only question I would pose would be if a warranty was included in the sale? Possible that the London Co. included a £2k warranty in that sale price - which wouldn't be a declared value to you? On the other hand if it was just a straight £2k difference then shameful tactics indeed!! Sent...

    Are you worried yet.

    I actually enjoy reading all the posts, agreed some start to get 'personal' but to be expected. Covid, it's avoidance, and it's treatment/demise are subjects we all have opinions on, and as to be expected with reasoning, literate adults there will be different opinions. So, I reserve the right...

    Office Coffee Machine

    I've tried most and Nespresso remains my 'go to'. I may consider Vertuo next though. Don't forget the pods are recyclable. Just get a recycling bag from Nespresso, drop off at Collect Plus... Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Joining the electric car club

    I forgot to mention the i3 regenerative braking. For me it was perfect and slowed the car pretty much in line with my driving style. I hardly ever needed brakes, not even coming to a complete stop!! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Joining the electric car club

    Sneaking up on people is yet another bonus!! I had an i3 and my favourite attribute was a turning circle better than a black cab. (Also for my B&B the charge point was a) tax deductible and b) good 'green' advertising) I suspect the Audi may not be quite as nimble. Lovely car though. Look...
