    Personally I can't hold a candle to that impressive total; if your still looking for employment, you should have no trouble getting light work :Rofl1:

    Did you know that a torch is a storage container for dead batteries!

    As the people from "the only way in Essex" say...........I am well jel! (not that I watch it of course, just flicking channels!

    I had a torch for a year which I inherited from my parents house clearance, my dad had had the thing for years, I was trying to check my battery in the dark, dropped the thing 2 days ago, and that was it, it went off, never to be revived.

    All spare torches send to me please! :BigGrin:

    Difficult to understand how anybody can get through life to adulthood without ever having a torch!
    You need to go and buy one immediately. Especially now the days are getting shorter. Just think of all the fun you could have!
