  2. Caroline Quinten talks shi*e

    Chatter
    Just watching Cornwall with the dopey cow, she just said you can buy a Cornish Pasty anywhere in the world while eating a pasty, which is an issue as the cornish recipe died years ago and i don't know of any bakery that does use the "proper" Cornish recipe.

    Charity Events
    Getting this one in now while its on my mind yes I've been foolish enough to sign up for the Silverstone Half Marathon again (along with Sharrie and hopefully Lady Vader) and I'm back in training after my knee injury earlier in the year. I'd like to run this for a good cause again but don't...
  6. Today's good deed

    Chatter
    During his talks Sam asked us all to consider signing up for the organ donor register, something he has benefited from himself. It takes 2 mins to do online and I'm now on the register. I'm sure Sam would be delighted if we can get a few more names on there. https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk...

  9. Brake pad replacement queries

    Transalp
    :confused: I'm looking at replacing my rear brake pads. 1) Mr. Haynes says push the caliper against the disc to press the old pads back in so when they're removed there's enough space to get the new ones in. How hard should I be pressing? I've no experience of working on disc brakes...
