Try this for cheek. Car recalled (second occasion) for airbag mechanism replacement. Fair enough, there is such a 'recall' on the www. Took the car to Nissan Mill Hill, collected it 4 hours later...

A few times over the years, we've noticed 'ordinary' items on Amazon with absurd prices - for example, a box of Canon photographic paper, usual price about £12, offered at £119.00. And today,...

Googling the history of ginger isn’t helpful if you want some serious facts. I want to know when ginger root, i.e, fresh ginger, was first brought to the UK. Powdered ginger has of course been...

Got a Miele washing machine 12 years ago. Expensive, but it's worked fine for the duration. We had extended insurance on it, which ran out after 10 years (not a call-out in all that time!) We asked...
