    When I moved into my flat I couldn't find a little table of the right dimensions for the phone and wifi router to sit on in the hallway, nor did I find a bedside table I liked, so my parents had a local carpenter make two little oak tables to my exact measurements. I'm delighted with them

    Link to pic of knife?

    Wife got me a Vitamix blender. My old blender had been going for many years and wouldn't die, so I couldn't justify the Vitamix. Now one of my daughters has my old blender.

    few years ago i had two historical knives coming from USA -paid a thousand for the both - got a letter from HM Customs to say they had been seized and were more or less destined for the oven- they were or so they told me ! even went to court over them to no avail -you can't beat HMC -broke my heart and changed my way of trading overseas on such items - i had done all the background on them -traced the original owner from WW2 - that was about the same time Ebay banned the sale of edged weapons
