    Perhaps the cynical part of me thinks that they purposely choose those who are a bit clingy to home, so that they make an attempt to contact family...

    I'd imagine the production team would tell you that something was seriously wrong at home if the worst came to the worst.  If your going to miss home that much, then why do people sign up for it in the first place?
    If I ever did something like that, I'd have to do it "properly"..

    Crazy indeed.  They aren't looking after the interests of the ordinary people in those countries at all.  It's all in the interests of the corporates and their political cronies.
    They should just print off the money and give it to the corporate boardrooms - I'm sure blank cheques would do very nicely.   They probably do that already.  It is the World Bank after all.

    Three phone sims do work in routers. I’ve used them this way.

    Dave Beans got a reaction from LC1 in gardens   
    To sort out that garden, you'd need to get in some machinery, although it looks as if the main access is via a 2.6ft gate at the front.  I'd get a mini digger in there, and scrape off the old grass, gathering it at the front of the garden.  I'd then use a crawler barrow to get it all out.  Once level, I'd seed the ground.  You could even put some sleepers in there, creating a terraced effect.  It would also create flat areas, making it more usable and manageable on the upkeep.

    Mini diggers are about £80 a day.  8ft sleepers are about £20 each.  Three days to clear (as a rough guess)..A couple of bags of seed...You'd be looking just over a week or so..If I were to do it (without the sleepers; to get the ground ready), I'd charge about a grand, give or take..The access looks like a bit of a bugger..

    The majority of their TVs are pretty shit, when compared with the likes of Sony & Samsung.  Five years ago they gave Sony a run for their money.  Many are now made by a non descript firm in Turkey and badged Panasonic (basically the sort of quality that you'd find in a Blaupunkt or Polaroid sold in Asda) - they are paid a brand fee for each sold.  This move has devalued their brand..

    The Legacies & Imprezas were very closely linked at once point.  I didn't want to get an Impreza as I felt I was getting a bit too old for one.  I got a 2005 rather than a 2006 Spec B, as the tax jumped up by 200 quid a year..
