    Petrol and diesel prices

    I use the nearby Tesco petrol station for my petrol. The price has jumped in the past 2-3 weeks from 116.9 to 126.9 (yesterday) per litre so the diesel will be a few pence dearer. Aye, you're correct, they just raise and decrease it when they want. I get the impression that it's nothing to do with oil production and market prices....it's simply done on a whim!

    Play off finals England 2018

    will you be watching any of the games ?
  3. Weekend is almost upon us and the finals will take place Saturday, Sunday & Monday. I'll probably take more interest in the Sunday & Monday games because these kick off at my preferred time...3pm. I'll need to make some enquiries into the teams before I decide on how I bet. Looking forward to them though!

    cloudy at the moment but to clear up early afternoon....going to cuprinol another shed today.
  6. Money, although important, isn't everything & I'm talking solely in a footballing sense. There have been numerous players up here who have shone, transferred down south primarily for the huge rise in wages but failed to make it.....little game time, so after a period they have to return for hopefully a better chance of actually playing week in week out but obviously they have to take a large drop in wages. Prime example....Jason Cummings.....played great for Hibs.....went to Forest & obviously got a huge hike in wages but fell out of favour so came to Rangers on a loan (I don't know if Gers pay or Forest or both pay part of his salary during this time) but if he is signed on a permanent deal it will be for wages a lot less than Forest were paying him. Managers are different in the sense that they are involved every week but I agree with the previous post by Locke regards this.

    Nice up here also....bit breezy from the east which chills it down a tad but can't complain. My gardening shall be done Thursday. Today has been garden centre visiting for more bags of compost for the wife's hanging baskets and raised beds, some flowers and veg which she will plant later. She has been buying bits and bobs (plants etc) but was out yesterday and came back with a car full of plants....a hundred & forty quids worth & that's her version of cutting down a bit this year.........She said I can't complain as I buy plenty of booze....suppose she's correct.

    Things that piss you off.

    Arseholes like this who are given the publicity/attention which the crave... https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/technology/from-itunes-to-credit-cards-and-even-car-parks-the-every-day-necessities-set-to-vanish-within-the-next-decade/ar-AAxzZ14?li=AAnZ9Ug&ocid=mailsignout A prime example......(from the link)... Mr McQueen explained that the think tank RethinkX believe that the self-driving age will see the end of car parks. 'They predict that by 2027, 90 per cent of passenger miles in the US each year will be travelled in autonomous vehicles and that many of those vehicles will not be owned by the 'driver',' he said. 'Instead, this 90 per cent of travel will be done in driverless Uber-style vehicles, which will make up 60 per cent of the vehicles on the road.' This means once you arrive at your destination there will be no need to park the car as your vehicle may drop you at your destination and then head off to a designated wait area or perhaps even drive home and pick you up later.

    I was starting to get pissed off waiting for the gas man arriving to service our boiler but he's just phoned and will be here shortly. At least he will be here before teatime.

    That Sturgeon Woman!! (or bloke?)

    Nicola Sturgeon doesn't actually speak for Scotland, she speaks for the SNP (her Mp's must toe the party line) and separatist nationalists only. She does NOT speak for the majority of the voting public in Scotland who, democratically, voted to remain part of the United Kingdom. But that result was not accepted by the separatists who have been craving, demanding a second separation referendum. I use the word separation/separatist due to the fact that Scotland (if it was successful) wants to leave the UK but then apply to join another union....the corrupt, totalitarian EU.....so Scotland wouldn't be 'independent' if the SNP's wishes come true. She is at it again as per the link.... https://news.sky.com/story/nicola-sturgeon-vows-to-restart-scottish-independence-debate-11379583 our NHS, Police, Education, roads are in a mess but as per normal Sturgeon & the SNP shy away from actually doing something about this and use 'Independence' as an attempted cover which is the only concern of the separatists. She is a proven liar (along with David Cameron and Salmond she signed the Edinburgh Agreement which allowed the original separation referendum and by signing this document they all state that they would respect the result & also both her and Salmond said the referendum would be a once in a lifetime opportunity.....and there have been other instances of flagrant porkies, the latest being stating that there was a ban on fracking in Scotland....NOT SO as confirmed by a lawyer in court earlier this month) and cannot be trusted! Here is an instance of how pro union supporters are treated by separatists up here... https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/politics/anti-independence-group-abused-nationalists-12509907

    Don't do anything that involves finance online mate. Plus it would be too easy to chase any cash you have lost.
