      Superb

      What can I say? It's a fantastic car both internally and externally.
      Let's start on the outside. I know it's only my opinion but I thinks it's stylish, elegant and sleek. I got it in black because I personally believe it's the best choice of colour for this car. Add to it the tinted windows and you have a real head-turner. The alloys are amazing and compliment the whole appearance.
      Internally is even more impressive. The dash is well laid out in a thoughtful manner. Many of the features for the radio, cruise control, telephone etc. are built into the steering wheel to aid safety whilst driving.
      Petrol consumption isn't too bad either returning in the region of 40 - 45mph. It's just as suited to a short journey as to a long one. Whenever I have had a long motorway journey (I live Cheshire but have relatives in the Essex region) I have never felt aches or pains upon my arrival.
      Passengers, both front and rear, have ample leg room. The luggage space is more than enough to pack suitcases for the whole family.
      My only criticism is that it doesn't have Bluetooth as standard but that's just a minor issue that I can live with. Would I recommend it to others? Certainly.

      Mid range mower

      Like most things in life you get what you pay for. This is a middle-of-the-road mower for a middle-of-the-road price.
      Advantages
      If you want a mower that can cut through a lawn that's not been mowed for a week or two then this will do it.
      It's easy to use, easy to empty and can store a good volume of grass before it needs emptying for such a small mower. The power lead is quite long as well.
      There are no adjustable height settings but you can purchase spacers which does the same thing but obviously it's not a simply click of a lever to lift or lower once they have been fitted.

      Disadvantages
      I find that the cut grass tends to clog and stick to the interior underneath which in turn causes the mower to disperse clods of grass all over the lawn and it can be a pain having to pick them up.
      If you want a stripe in your lawn then don't buy this.

      All in all, if it's just a case of buying a mower with no frills to cut the grass then this is the one for you.

      Leave 'em be if they want to kill themselves

      Sadly my wife died last month from lung cancer.
      Below are some facts whether you like them or not, from me, an ex smoker who, beleive it or not, packed in smoking exactly one year ago today (23rd Aug).

      The money that the government makes in tax is ca £10 BILLION per year. That's right £10 BILLION, of which only £1 billion goes back into treating smoke related illness's. That's a nice profit don't you think?
      How much extra tax would Joe Public be clobbered with if everyone stopped smoking? Remember, smokers keep your taxes lower!!
      Let's face it. If the government really, really wanted to stop people from killing themselves via tobacco they would hike the price skyhigh. But they never will, will they?

      A smoker can smoke 20 cigarettes, get in his car and drive safely. Can a drinker do that?
      A smoker will not ring in work the next day complaining he's feeling ill. How many days are lost in UK industry because of smoking compared to the millions lost through drinking?
      A smoker will not, on a Friday or Saturday night, cause a fight in a pub or club and have the already over-stretched police come and sort it out. Equally, a smoker will not burden the over-stretched NHS with cuts and bruises due to fighting.
      And who is more likely to urinate or vomit in shop door ways? A smoker or a drinker?

      All the people I know, who smoke, say they don't mind having to go outdoors to light up and, they also agree with it.

      So, given the above, don't you think you non-smokers could cut a little slack and go easier on smokers?
      It's their choice to kill themselves.

        All in all this is a wel-rounded biscuit which I consider to be good value for money.

        Having 3 Yorkshire terriers, Ruby 9 years old (a little love) and 20 months old twin brothers Barney (the idiot) and Murphy (the softie), I wanted a dog food that ticked all the boxes i.e. taste, nutrition, protein etc. I have done some quite in-depth research into various "complete" dog foods and must say that this one ticks all the boxes. All 3 dogs love it. Moreover, it doesn't leave them with smelly dog breath, doesn't give them the runs and it doesn't include bulking agents. Also, the sizes of the biscuits are ideal for their mouths.

        Obviously buying the biggest bag possible saves money but I had a concern that the dogs were eating the same food day in day out. If, for example, you love steak and chips and ate it EVERY day I'm sure you'd soon get bored with it. However, I was informed by an authority on dogs that it doesn't make too much difference to them. I would prefer it though if the manufacturers could mix the flavours so that it's not just chicken or just beef all the time.
