If this does not bring a tear to your eye, nothing will.

Note "our aim is to stop selling cigarettes in the UK. It won't be easy".

Think they might be in for a beating on social-media.

Why the fek can't they make the slots in a toaster 1/4" longer and 1/4" deeper?

Surely the additional production costs would be negligible.

Have you ever tried to squeeze a slice of bread shorter? yes it goes shorter, but then it kinks in the middle causing one part to be closer to the heat and another part further away resulting in either a burnt strip or an untoasted strip.

When the slot isn't deep enough the top edge  of the bread pokes out, requiring me to turn it over half way through.

I can't believe that toaster manufacturers are unaware of these issues.

I'm beginning to suspect that Mrs Red's cheapskatery is contributing to the problem. I try to persuade her that going for low-cost over quality is sometimes a false economy but don't think I'm getting through, she says things like, "It's just a box with hot wires in, how can one be better than the other"?

I've tried to compromise by suggesting that she finds the dearest one and the cheapest one and then buys one from the mid-range, but she interprets that as 'find the three cheapest ones (Most likely all under a fiver) and buy the middle one of those'.

The only way to find out if expensive toasters have more generous slots than cheap ones is by doing some research myself. I'm just a bit worried about wandering around Currys electrical department with a slice of seeded wholemeal.  


Gill is the same, always buys a cheapo toaster without regard to bread size. Drives me nuts.

Think the answer though is that toasters are a global product, not made specifically for the UK market as such, & here in the UK we traditionally have "bigger" bread than elsewhere.

After all the hoohah over the missed foul, Ronnie had what looked on paper an easy semi-final v Mark Davis, but was in poor form & was thrashed 6-1.

Most of us would prefer to see Ronnie in the Final, I suspect, but what a thrill it must have been for Mark Davis - his first ever ranking final after 27 years on the circuit. 

He'll collect a minimum of £30,000 if he loses, or £70,000 if he wins, so for a man who has won £1.3 million in a 27 year career (less than £50k per year) it's a big deal for the fella.

Something real nice to see a career journeyman have their moment of glory.

Arsenal have their game in hand on Monday, at home to Leicester City.

Current price to win the EPL? 33/1.

A somewhat underwhelming performance away to Huddersfield yesterday, & perhaps lucky not to have conceded at least 1 against a team who almost never score.

Even so, without quite gelling, it was another win & the stats now say just 3 goals conceded in 9 games, which includes some biggies against the likes of Man C, Chelsea & Spurs. For the first time in many a year, they look solid at the back.

Goal difference v the leaders is becoming a worry, but it's clear Liverpool are now the real deal.

Next up, CL in midweek.

This was at the "People's Vote" rally in London this afternoon, where folks were demanding another referendum on any agreed deal. Note how many trees attended.

What are you guys on in the 5.25?

Apologies Stu, I got the time wrong, it was 4.30, & not 5.25.

On the bright side (for you, not me), I've just checked the result, & all 3 selections finished out of the money.

You have £50 credit with me Tikay, how much you want on it?


Ooh, lovely, thank you.

I think a modest £10 ew please.

blimey, even thread is applying restrictions now.

Ha, not at all - you never suggested an amount.

If you think it's worth more, just say and I'm sure nuros will oblige, up to the amount of credit I have with him.

Sorry, ferrying kids around.  Was thinking 25 e/w was standard.   Have you backed Neil's too?  Will be like the old days on thread.   We only need a Tal car crash gif about 4.45 to get the full old days on thread effect.

Yes, backed them first thing this morning, & race is at, I think 5.25, so that's still to come.
