At the risk of making this thread too exciting and fascinating, I've just bought a new kettle.

I went to a farm yesterday where the cows "milk themselves".

They voluntarily enter a booth where a robotic machine cleans the udder, laser guided suction tubes  lock onto the teats and the milk is sucked into a holding tank with a test-tube sample taken from each cow's delivery.

I saw a documentary about a farm like that, I think it might have been one of those inside the factory things or something like that.

I just bought an electric toaster.

More than 50 summers in this vale of tears, and I've never owned one before.

There's now a Welsh school in Trevethin. The kids probably still won't pass many exams but they'll almost certainly end up speaking better Welsh than English.

So, here we are in mid-August, Futtocks?  What domestic gadgetry have you purchased (or are you planning to do so) this month?

Well, er... I bought some toaster bags as well as the toaster.

And a new remote control for the amplifier.

Let me know if this gets too interesting.

Well... I guess the main question here is, why were you browsing property in Perth? 

it was just that a friend disputed the fact that there was a BERNARD MANNING DRIVE in duncraig perth and i had to re check it out to prove i hadnt dreamed it

That's to encourage your passenger to pay for it.

It is a safety feature on left hand drive vehicles, where the fuel tank is further away from the driver in an accident, unfortunately in the UK we have right hand drive vehicles, and the manufactors are too lazy to move the fuel tank.
