Re: MOT

I replaced my tyres 6 months before my MOT was due unfortunately I had a flat which was unrepairable and had to have a new tyre fitted, when the car went for its MOT I was told I had to change both front tyres to the same make and tread pattern or get a matching tyre for one of the existing tyres.

JHS did my kitchen and did a very good job, however I wish the other half had chosen solid wood doors and drawers and not the Formica covered type.

Why do people poison lay poison ?

Family pet dog died of poisoning last night in Konia area , why do people lay down this stuff ? If it's for rats then put it inside lengths of pipe so domestic animals cannot get to it. Better still don't put it down !
