yeah they were full as well, he was either going camping or staying at a b&b at the bike show in Peterborough ( I can't remember which he said).   Not only did he not overbalance, but he didn't even notice until he stopped for a break.  :D  I'm not sure if they both went at the same time, or if one went after the other

Tracking numbers for the US postal service.  They don't feekin DO ANYTHING!!!  What is the point of having a tracking number system if you aren't going to use it!?!?!?  ARGH!!  Yes a package gets assigned a number but it's status is never updated, even after delivery.

Rant over, going to eat dinner now.

When I ordered some figures form america last year they spent 4 months just arriving in the Uk and we're already being sent back to america by then time I even found out this (cheers USPS tracking number) they sent another package which turned up within 2 weeks, then 5 months later the original package arrives at my door saying that the customs charges had already been paid by me  :drevil2: pity I'd lost interest in actually painting these figures by then.

1 in 4 people in Britain are clinically obese.

Was listening to the chat about it in on Jeremy Vine's R2 show, and whether it should become (more of a) social stigma.  Speaking as a lardarse myself, I was pissed off at all the fatties phoning and emailing and generally whining about 'second-class citizenship' and 'persecution comparable to ethnic minorities', along with 'I'm healthy no really' and 'I exercise and eat less and I'm still fat', and other such excuses.
There are other health concerns for a number of people that prevent weight loss, and that's fine and all well and good, but it can't account for a quarter of the population - roughly fifteen and a half million people.  And if exercise + eating less = no loss isn't working for a lot of them (those who bother), there has to be something wrong with the equation.  I'm going to guess it's mostly to do with 'eating less'.
I don't like my body image and I wish I was thinner and much, much healthier.  But I'm not going to make excuses and rationalisations: I haven't done anything serious about it so far because I'm a lazy sod and I like crisps and biscuits too much.

On another subject: if women are great multitaskers, why do they have to take their money from an ATM, tuck it neatly into their purse, tuck their purse up neatly, tuck the purse neatly into the right pocket of their handbag, and pull the handbag neatly over their shoulder before they can take a single step away and out of my way?

Regards to the 1 in 4 fat people it all depends on the silly charts that the Doctors use if your like half a stone over your ideal weight then your classed as obese. Its all BS in my opinion

But it is multi-tasking. Putting away money whilst annoying the person waiting in the line.

Family  :roll:
Or to be more precise my two useless brothers !
It was my Dads 70th birthday on Thursday and as a pressie we arranged a trip on a 1930's built sail boat for the day with a pub lunch - fine all organised I thought  we all chip in a third of the cost and we are sorted.
Only I ended up footing the bill !  :hmmm
I will get the money out of them eventually but this happens everytime  - hell it's not like they dont know when it is - hint - it's the same date every year !  :whistle:
Heaven doesn't want me. Hell is afraid i will take over !

A very good friend of mine, after 21 years service, was called into the Sqn Leaders office and told he was being made compulsory redundant.

I wish this was Frothers because I would be able to properly express my current feelings about this matter.

Little spoddy GWombie goits, smugging and sneering about how they'd keep shovelling their banknotes into the GW furnace even if Tom Kirby used it to run a terrorist organisation.

Smartarse trolling, obviously, but pushed a wrong button.  :soapbox:

They may see the light when introduced to better quality miniatures. A stupid comment to make from them though.

 Things that really p*** you off.

 When you pay for something and dont get it.Then get repeatedly told that it will get posted out but does not.

 This is really starting to P*** me off big time.

 Have been told to look inot the small claims thingy and try that out.Might be the last resort.
