  1. Heart attack at the age of 41

      As I understand it dog meat in the UK would not be passed as fit for human consumption. If someone wants to eat their pet dog who has died then I guess that is up to them but they had better not have killed it or the RSPCA are likely to take action and there are laws against selling it, except maybe for pet food!.
  2. Heart attack at the age of 41

      Presumably looking for something for the dog.
  3. Heart attack at the age of 41

        Were Roman slaves, who did most of the physical labour, restricted to one meal a day? Whatever I'm not sure I see your point here, the diet of ancient Rome is hardly relevant to today!
  4. Heart attack at the age of 41

      So were the Romans fitter than us? Better life expectancy etc? Btw I believe bread was free in Rome!
  5. Hi, am calling from Microsoft. Your PC is infected

    Same old thing again today, an obvious call centre, English with strong sub-continent accent, German telephone number with 02225 code, pathetic! After such long pause I had hoped they had given up and finally stopped, no such luck it seems. I am amazed that this old con is still worth the scammers effort.
  6. Best place to buy an ebike

    I bought mine at Fahrrad-Zentral Kopfhammer, Humboltstr. 15, they have a separate shop on the opposite side of the road for E-bikes, so far so good but just had the first service to date. They were also happy to service my wife's E-bike which was purchased online (https://www.fahrrad-xxl.de).
  7. Coronavirus

      Ah, clearly a conspiracy by the drug companies to delay a vaccine and discredit Trump even further to stop him being re-elected. What's the betting that as soon as the Democrats win a vaccine will be magically discovered. We can but hope for both out comes!
  8. Heart attack at the age of 41

        No no, its not the pubs that are dangerous its the churches! All that singing and chanting, everyone drinking from the same cup and eating things out of somebody else's hand, perfect conditions for a Covid 19 outbreak. At least the pubs are trying to adapt to social distancing though they may have trouble in Wales with the singing, maybe that's why they haven't opened there yet.
  9. Heart attack at the age of 41

      No, it was always after the pubs closed on Sunday at 2pm, even for those who  went to church first! Of course these days churches are dangerous places, so skip them and just go to the pub, when they open again.
  10. Heart attack at the age of 41

    I was quite a heavy drinker an excessive eater of chocolate and other sweets and a 60 a day cigarette smoker, but I did not put on any weight till I gave up the cigs.10 years after giving up I had put on 20kg and only with a great ongoing struggle have I been able to loose 10 of those kilos, and no I rarely eat chocolate or drink much any more!
  11. Coronavirus

        Is that why the UK have not included Portugal in their list of countries from which travellers do not have to quarantine?
  12. Heart attack at the age of 41

    I did Quote:- "Acute increases in carbohydrate consumption will increase blood insulin concentrations, thereby perhaps increasing total cholesterol and LDL-C production"   "Acute", "perhaps", not exactly very convincing.
  13. E-Bike / Pedelec recommendations

      That is remarkably cheap, one wonders how much the dealer paid for it and why they reduced it by so much? I paid €2100 reduced from 2699 for mine back in Dec. 2018. I would be very interested in knowing how yours performs ongoing, to date mine has had a first, free, service and a puncture after just over 1800 km and am very satisfied with it.
  14. E-Bike / Pedelec recommendations

      I would not be at all surprised to find the Chinese are dumping to try and take the market, won't be the first time, so it is good to hear they have not got the right products. The bottom line though is you get what you pay for. A fairly regular touring bike is going to set you back at least €500, so when you add in a motor, controller and a battery (typically at least €500 on its own) then some heavier duty parts to handle the extra weight and power and it is no surprise to me that decent European e-bikes start around €2000. Check out the German manufacturer Cube they have an excellent range of e-bikes and bear in mind that there are often much better deals available in winter and on last years models.
