Re: Post your facebook friends tedious status updates*

My hairdresser is constantly whining on FB that her husband goes to the pub every evening on his way home from work & doesnt get in until around 9pm by which time she & the kids are usually in bed and his dinner is in the microwave.

Re: Buena Vista Social Club

We've seen BVSC at The Royal Albert Hall twice - it's a massive party!

Last time, we were outside in the smoking lounge when Omara arrive...

Re: Boiler cost? - London

My cousin, who used to work for British Gas, installed my new combi boiler about 7 years ago. He wont recommend anything other than Worcester Bosch, so that's what I got at a cost of approx £2750. It's brilliant.
