    Morning. Early start today to help NS guy. Dry out but copped out and drove in for a change. Hopefully quiet drink tonight with the eldest. No work tomorrow. Weather looking reasonable for today.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Might go for a bike ride today, first in about 4 weeks if it happens.

    Too early for beer?

    Unsurprisingly 30 miles was a bit tough after no riding for weeks. Bike's also filthy, and splattered with slug guts :cry:

    Even a sea view from the kitchen window. Lovely. Off to get ice cream and see the guys at the surf school.

    What telly you getting Stevo? I'm in the market for 2. One for the big new family room, and one for the "grown up's" sitting room. I last bought a tv 11 years ago, I think the tech has moved on...

    Likewise, we bought our last TV sometime in the previous decade. Probably a Sony Bravia but am checking what else is out there. We're not TV addicts or have to have the top spec biggest plasma thing, so a good reliable box that does most of the standard stuff these days will do. Also need it to be a bit bigger than the current one.

    Dammit. This is where I'm at. I've had Sony bravia TVs for 20 years. Well, that's 2 TV's, they last so well...Maybe there are TV people on here.

    I just bought a house for 20 grand more than some bloke holding a quiche bought it for. Probably going to set fire to it, chuck it in next door's garden. :wink:

    well, until the legal beagles have done their thing theres always a chance of being done over, but heres hoping. this agent doesn't seem to be a censored like the last one.

    if this one falls through then we're gonna forget the whole plan.

    Me did not a lot me. Took Shorty swimming whilst Tricky went with Mum to the park on account of Tricky's horrendous cough. Met up in the cafe after and had coffee and cake. The sun shone and I fixed my throttle position switch on Porker#1. L Jetronic anybody?

    A lot of the pic quality and features are pretty similar between the different makes at a given price point. Main thing for me is they're reliable - and you can fault a Sony Bravia on that. Bombproof.

    The Panasonic higher-end models are very good too.

    Those and a couple of Samsungs came out well in the 'what telly' type reviews. Tbh any of those would be good so may leave final choice to the EPO then she can't complain about what we get :)
