    Making my toast for brekky just now...

    Dropped two slices into my low wattage, pop-up toaster and pushed the tab down...

    OH NO... the genny didn't rev up as it usually does when the toaster draws the power...

    There must be a fault on the genny... more bloody expense... thank goodness it is a Honda, so there will be people nearby who can look at it for me...

    A pity... I was really looking forward to a couple of slices of toast (with butter and marmalade).

    Never mind...

    And the POP, up jumped the perfectly brown slices of toast.

    Now I remembered I was plugged into Frankie's electricity, not my genny!

    As my mum would have said,

    "It's the ageing process..."

    Maybe giving the toaster a good clean would improve it's general efficiency?? :)

    I wouldnt risk cleaning it, I don't expect it would work again. That's what I find with descaling kettles anyway.

    What, in the name of the good lord, would I want a NEW toaster for?

    My current toaster works perfectly well, thank you.

    The population of the western world have allowed themselves to be brain washed into thinking they must have new stuff... new this... new that... which is, of course, exactly what the "powers that be" want you to think.

    Create a desire for something that isn't needed... preferably get them to borrow money to buy it... make more money.

    A crazy, image based, fashion conscious, load of old nonsense...

    ...and anyway, I don't go into Asda... full of old people wanting cheap stuff...

    What rude, naughty minded folk some of you are...

    Editing my post so as to be able to make inappropriate, smutty comments that reveal the insides of your dirty minds...

    ...now THEY need cleaning, not my toaster!

    But without people buying new stuff, there would be a finite amount of old stuff and Western society would collapse.

    Oh My God, I've just seen this. I have no idea what happened there, I just quoted and "No wonder you needed two toasts after joining Frankie in France, you must have been partying way past your usual bed time".

    What happened, most of the quote and some of my text vanished. Stern words need with our glorious leader, they sold him a duff editor.

    Yeah right...

    and the thing is, lots of relatively new members of this Forum, who are not yet familiar with your suspicious methods, will actually believe you...

    I have no excuse, my post was unashamedly smutty, I put it down to my upbringing, it's often been said, I was dragged up, not brought.:D
    That's in spite of my parents, no one could wish for better.
