Ooh! I didn't think I still had that


Recommended Posts

Amazing how the last ten years or so have seen interest rates on the canvas.

Even more amazing how so many people have taken on as much debt as possible, rather than taking the opportunity to pay mortgages, etc off.

Still, if you've got to "have it now", eh?

Chickens will be coming home to roost now over the next few months, so if you want a cheap Range Rover...

I've been converting videos recently, as there's stuff in all sorts of formats and they don't all play via the Plex Media Server, or carry metadata. Trawling through the subfolders, I come across all three series of 'Operation Good Guys'.

Cleaning out the garage I found my box of Rugby League stuff which I've not seen since I last moved house years ago. This is what happens when you never throw out a single thing that you pick up or get sent in the post with a Rugby League logo on it between about 1989 and 2011.

ClubCall BTW - 48p/minute in 1991! ?

Just the other night there was an advert on T.V. for Tiger Balm. I had never heard of it,my wife said I am sure I have a tin of that somewhere. She went rooting around,drawers,cupboards, sewing tins and hey presto,there she was proud as punch with this tin of Tiger Balm.I said where did you get this from? Her answer ,I bought it in Singapore airport when we stopped there on our way to Australia. I said that was in 1988 when we went on our first Ashes tour. 32 years ago and I had never seen or heard of it. Just one problem ,I can not get the lid off,and if I try to prise it off I think the tin will disintegrate.Anybody want to buy a 32 years old tin of Tiger Balm.Just joking,it is her most prized possession now.

Tiger Balm is fantastic stuff! We bought a load of it while we we in India and paid 37p a jar for it. Boots sell it for like £4 for the same size jar. Luckily in Dewsbury there is an Asian supermarket that sells it for £1.50 which is the cheapest I've found in the UK so far.

It was readily available in pound shops recently.

Not Tiger Balm though, could sting a tad ?

When i was at school i was stood waiting to go into a lesson and a "friend" put his hands over my shoulders and smeared it across both of my cheeks under my eyes - i poured tears for over an hour
