This thread is about the disgusting and vile found on the streets around SE19... Dog mess on Waldergrave Rd used to be one of mine. Then it was fly tipping. Now it's just litter.


Aaaahhaaa. Thanks for clearing that up Elmo!. Maybe we should rename it into "Things that make you go YUK!" ;) I understood it as "Things that make you go aarggggggggggggghhhhhh or ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr or any other noise of angriness rather than disgust.... :D :D

Yes, thanks for clearing that up Elmo, now if you could just pick up the litter as well then the streets will be perfect. ;)

The significant difference in fares with local cab firms! :blink: <_<

Recent examples:

1) Cab to Vets in Thornton Health yesterday - Queens Cars: 9.60
Cab back from same - Brigstock Cars: 5:00

2) Cab to Dulwich Community Hospital recently: Crystal Cars: 10:00
Cab back from same via a firm local to the hospital: 15:00

It certainly pays to shop around!

Also suggests Dulwich is pricier than here in the Palace, which in turn is pricier than Thornton Heath

As I walk around the area 2 things that are annoying me more and more are:

(1) The increasing encroachment of trees and bushes onto the pavements from peoples properties due to lack of pruning; making the paths narrower or forcing one to duck at regular intervals

Sorry it's a bit late to reply to this but worth knowing that the Council have the power to force owners to trim their bushes (ooer missus) - I know cos it happened to my neighbour when our postie complained.

Egg Whites!! Posted Image

Unless they are meringued, or at a pinch in nicely scrambled eggs. On their jack jones they are tasteless and flipping unpleasant. When we were at breakfast in a lovely B&B in Cong, I quite rationally, reasonably and understandably ate the yolk from within my poached egg and discarded the white. The family of Americans (Mum and 3 teenage daughters) sitting at our table all asked for poached eggs on toast - they then ate just the egg white and left the yolk!! Outrageous and disturbing..

Bad acting :( Bradley what's his name from ' Law and Order UK' makes the series unwatchable (IMHO).

Americans seem completely obsessed with low-fat, low cholesterol everything so that they can eat huge volumes of whatever it is and also add on a really giant ice-cream (since dessert doesn't count for calories, it seems).

...but since I'm in the US as I write this, I'm off to have nachos and ice cream for dins, I think...if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.... ;)

The ability of nearly all supposedly "fresh" produce bought in my Tesco Local to defy both the best before date and indeed any natural law governing the speed at which meat, vegetables, or fruit can ordinarily turn into some slimy, foul smelling mush in my fridge which otherwise has the ability to store produce bought from any other supermarket perfectly well. :angry:
