1000 mixed for 12 quid...
£12.34 + VAT = 14.80 + postage = £20.30

Which is a bit different from twelve quid.

Still, good site to know, I've bookmarked them, was quite impressed by their telescopic scaffolding tower.

And Wickes. 'Trade' electrical wholesalers mostly (but not always) have good prices on bags of them.

Aah, Smash & Nicey. Hmm. Way back around '93 when I was merely in my early 40's I played records at a pub in Chadwell Heath, Essex, of a rock nature for which the pub landlady paid me money. I suppose to a 19 year old I looked very old. So this guy, every week, asked me to play Bachman Turner Ov...

What do I want from an (audio) system? Put simply, a system that every now and again makes me break out in a huge smile. And that's it really. And even with my modest setup I get those moments, quite a lot of them. I also hear shortcomings, mostly from the source, that makes me not smile. I do know ...

Since last looking here I've acquired a bunch of FLAC files by The Misunderstood. Never knew them then but I sure do know them now - excellent. In this life I think it's excellent that after all these years I'm still discovering stuff. Cast your mind back, I'm sure that most males of a certain age c...

...Alex Harvey pissing on my shoe in the urinals ... On the "celebrity slash" topic, I once was at a "Gentleman's Rugby Evening" and used the urinal adjacent to a totally hammered Phil Vickery - he's huge (as in bulky, and no, I didn't look) - blocked out the light he did. On an...

Ackcherlee I've had a quite a few encounters of the celebrity kind, thinking about it. On contemplation though I think the most memorable of them all would probably be Alex Harvey pissing on my shoe in the urinals at the Wardour Street Marquee Club around '72. He looked up at me (he was diminutive) ...

My friend's mother knows the lady who knitted the Clangers. Respect! Does she make woo woo noises? I'm trying to think of famous moments, connections, namedrops, notable occurences but sadly think that me having shook hands once with Richard Nixon is probably something I should keep quiet about.

Leopards & Spots come to mind... I was recently talked into buying a Lexmark printer by a salesman, he said they'd changed, they were now good. I beleived him, I was a fool, they are still rubbish. The salesman lied. Two original models and one different model that eats sheets of address labels ...

All together now..... BT ARE CRAP! There, that's better. I've had a running battle with them since 1969. They are tosh. Now young Phillip, if you'd care to turn to the back of your sociology exercise book, to the space where you sometimes make notes, and write this down in bright blue ink: 'Just bec...
