    Joke Thread II

    As the weather is so hot I asked the Hermes delivery driver if he'd like a bottle of cold water. When he said yes I dropkicked it over a fence into my neighbour's rose bush and told him I'd left it in a designated safe space.

    Inflation Part 2

    The UK has a stagnant economy and we are hearing about tax cuts to solve cost of living crisis…..that means more borrowing or cutting public services. My prediction is the next 2 years will be dire

    Meber 700 , decent machines?

    Looks in great condition. Scott and Sargeant have been dealers for Meber for a fair few years (I think), which is an indication of quality.
