Kezo, I had a chat with Sky when I was cancelling. They were very heavily pushing stream, I told them I like to record and they mentioned how you can save programs in a list like recordings but then stream them from the relevant player. Sounds good until your interweb is down, the program is pulled from the player, or the program isn’t yet on the player, which happens often. I’m liking the Freesat box, but I do miss the extra channels you get with Sky.
I’ve taken the plunge and bought a 1TB Freesat recordable box. It works very similar to the Sky Q box but navigating around channels and features is not as fast or smooth. The program guide could do with a bit of work. The recording feature is very good, as good if not better than Sky, when you go into your recorded items it shows thumbnails of your recordings. The box also has a reminder feature, something Sky removed on the Q box.
Freesat offer 30 day trial some I’m going to see how I get on with it. I think I’m missing the extra channels you get with the basic Sky package, but I have to ask myself, are these channels worth around £20 a month.
As above, air fryer is great for them, ideally I’d oven bake them but if I’m doing a greasy breakfast they go in the (dare I say it?) deep fat fryer (vegetable oil not fat!) 😮 Frying pan is no good as hash browns nowadays tend to go all mushy.
I don’t have a deep fat fryer, but if you did the Aldi MC’D’s dupes in one they’d be perfect, all they’d need is the little grease proof bag wrapper.

I’m going my big Tesco in the morning can you cook the hash browns in the air fryer ?
Yes Mike, they are perfect in the air fryer, I gave them around 14 mins at 200c.
Ask to see the records / time sheets that show the carer visited you. This is the councils problem not yours, they’re getting shafted by the care company and are trying to pass the shafting onto you! Contact your local councillor, they know all the heads of departments and unlike a lot of MP’s, they are there because they want to help the local community. You’ll find your ward councillor on the councils website.
The last hurrah of the old car before the new one comes along (maybe to the Scheme) Only in SEL Executive trim with either a 1.5 petrol £2999 AP, 2.0 4×4 diesel at £3699 AP (Perfect for caravan pullers) or 2.0 litre petrol 4×4 at £3799 Advance Payment.
So my inside information was correct. Dealers do know what’s happening before we find out.
After that year, 2024 can only get better.
I’ll probably put the heating on for half an hour.
Fresh Cumberland sausages every time!
I like a Cumberland wheel in an oven bottom muffin with brown sauce.
I don’t buy the frozen Richmond anymore, I grill mine but find they don’t brown very well, they look anemic not matter how long you give them. I buy Asda fresh pork or Lincolnshire sausages.
I understand that you can preheat the vehicle while it is on your driveway so it’s nice and toastie and the windscreen clear etc but is this only possible if it is plugged in to your charger?
I was thinking exactly this when freezing my socks off this morning whilst de-icing the windscreen.
We had a test drive in an Enyaq today, we both really liked it. Being used to an automatic mild hybrid it was very similar, apart from the regenerative braking. There was a coupe and estate in the showroom, both had rear wipers.
It’s a very big car, ideal for big folk or families.
Presumably clearing stock of the old model before the new one is released?
Yes, stock items only.
I’ll miss watching big sporting events on the large screen but other than that its not gonna be a big loss.
You can get the Now tv app either on your TV or Firestick and subscribe for a month when there’s something you want to watch. I’m watching less and less tv. I enjoy YouTube, probably watch more than I do tv.November 27, 2023 at 9:47 pm in reply to: Has anyone had money taken from them by Europcar after handing back their car? #250194
Yep, I’ve used them twice, once via Motability and once via the car dealer, both occasions they took money from my card. Both occasions the car was not full on delivery, just below the full line. I pointed this out to the delivery driver and he said he’d make a note. I handed back exactly the same and on both occasions had around £20 taken. Got it back both occasions after kicking off.
@Brydo, what fish do they serve if it’s not cod? I know haddock is very popular in Yorkshire, I find the taste of haddock a bit too fishy. I also hate it when they leave the skin on, it’s just lazy, does nothing for the flavour.
Billy Connolly, met him when he was filming his BBC World Tour Of England series for the BBC back in the 90’s. Very funny man, always laughing. Also, Bobby Charlton and Mavis from Coronation Street.
You wouldn’t want to eat haggis then, which I love lol
My mum was a Glaswegian, my grandad was a ship builder on the Clyde during the war, my nan was from a village on the shores of Loch Ness, I’ve eaten lots of haggis and love it. Though I’ve not had it for a few years. Down in England there’s not many places sell it, I seem to remember Farmfoods doing a frozen one. Burns night is coming up so I’ll look out for some.
Well, no cake as shown above, all they had were “Specially Selected Belgian Chocolate Cake” However, looks exactly the same, 413g and was only £2.19 🙂 So that and a tub of Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream came to just over £4 😀
The one I’ve been getting has swirls of white, dark and milk chocolate on top, it’s also Belgium chocolate.
I don’t buy fish and chips locally as it just doesn’t compare to when I’m in Cornwall. Cornwall price for large cod and chips is £11, the curry sauce is £1.80.
Chinese around here, Northwest England: special (mixed meat) chow Mein, special (mixed meat) fried rice, salt and chilli chicken wings, chips, carton of curry sauce and free prawn crackers was £28.50 on Friday just gone.
Indian: chicken vindaloo, chicken Jalfreze, onion bhajis, meat samosas, 2 pilau rice, chips is £27.80
My current very unhealthy guilty pleasure is a mixed kebab on a large garlic naan bread, chargrilled chicken tikka, chargrilled lamb tikka, minced lamb Sheek kebab, donner meat with salad and chilli sauce. £8.50. The Indian takeaways near us are very reasonable due to the competition, there must be 30 of them within 2 miles.

They’re different cars, the 6 is of normal height and is 20cm longer that the Skoda and has a very limited boot in comparison. The Enyaq is less well equipped but is both cheaper and stores much more.
The boot in the 6 is the main issue, we’re interested if it can fit a wheelchair or scooter, not at the same time. Mrs Joe watched the review and thinks it looks great.November 25, 2023 at 11:07 pm in reply to: Chance to Work Guarantee’ will remove barriers to work #250030
We’re going to have a look ourselves, looks like it’s between this and the Enyaq.
