Headlights on a lot of cars these days when driving at night. Talk about brighter than the sun! Are they meant to be like this?!! Constantly have to avoid looking into my rear view mirror so i don't get my eyes burned out.

That "Blue" white light is really bright in the rear view mirror, Car's seem to have halogen lights as standard nowadays.

Other than crawling back under his rock never to be heard from again there’s nothing that odious twerp Piers Morgan could do that would be ‘to his credit’. The bloke will never be anything other than a weapons grade c***.
For a good critique (being polite) of Morgan and his methods, Matthew Syed in the Sunday Times today is worth reading!

People who say the names of counties. Like Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Bedfordshire but pronounce the shire bit as 'sheer'. Yorksheer.

It should be pronounced 'sher'. As in Yorksher.

Even though it could be argued it should be 'shyer', its not. I'm right. :p

I was just having that very conversation with my shyer horse but had to have it through the stable door ;)

Estate Agent saying ALL DOCUMENTS can be submitted online with a particular conveyancing company (I asked for a recommendation as forms will be difficult to send from Italy by post right now), then finding out that this particular company won't accept sale contract and transfer form without a wet signature. Was only informed of this at a late stage (even though Land Registry started accepting electronic signatures from last year). With mail taking up to a month from Italy right now, DHL was used. 44 Euro later for a letter to be sent!
