Seen in Boots Gloucester today - and it's still only October!

Is there something missing here? Like a web address, perhaps? This sticker has recently appeared on the door of my friendly local Indian takeaway (the Quedgeley Tandoori - highly recommended, by the way), but the only time I tried to order online (before this sticker appeared), the order didn't reach them and they recommended phoning them up instead!

My fiancée's car was driven into on Tuesday evening by another car who tried overtaking into her path. She's well bruised, but the car came off much worse. Looks like it was a noble end as it sacrificed itself to save her.

G:Thanks! Global Radio has a scheme called G:Thanks. The latest poster - on display at all our sites - has my name right in the middle. Humbled...

Chilli comes from Mexico, doesn't it? Not somewhat further south!

So, the latest gas service revealed that the flues from the boilers weren't fixed in place (they've been like that for 15 years, but that doesn't matter!) So they had to be fixed - but they run up the wall at the end of this long, narrow riser. I'm glad I didn't have to do the job!

Can anyone enlighten me? What does "Except Buses" permit buses to do here that other vehicles aren't allowed to?

So, we had a problem in the bedroom - the top of the stairs takes up part of the room, making it hard to get to things. So I'm building some sliding clothes rails, which pull forwards to allow you to get to clothes at the back. Here's the first rail in position and in its closed and open positions.
