    Hi.
    If you own a new Burstner elegance,but Free load and use food banks,or,buy a used B/elegance and shop normaly,does that cut it down to 15 yrs ?
    It would appear that me buying a new B/elegance,would enable me to live to 106....... Providing there is not a Nuclear war LOL

    These are UK statistics Tea Bag, sorry they don't apply to Portugal. I guess that the desire for anyone wanting to live an additional 30 years in Portugal is very unlikely.;)

    I have a 20 year old Swift. Does not leak and I don't use food banks. What's my life expectancy?

    I have no idea what the life expectancy of a muppet is MM but the link in my original post could shed some light on it.;)(y) How did you manage to find an old Swift that doesn't leak, that must be some form of record.:)

    Hi Buttons.
    It does have its drawbacks for some,however,for another guaranteed 30 yrs of good health and being able to get about,i would return and live in London,despite have told all and sundry over the years. " I would not live there,if you paid my rent".
    Mind you,there are a plenty that are flocking to live in London AND have their rent paid...but thats another story.LOL.
    Stay well,stay lucky.

    Are you deliberately looking for a fight, young Mr Buttons?

    It underlines the fact that sitting on your arse all day with bags of crisps watching Jeremy Kyle isn't good for you.
