Re: Chat Thread

Listerine is the one I have used for a number of years (not every day) and it feels as if a layer of skin has been removed from your mouth every time. I have a bottle in the bathroom, gathering dust, awaiting an occasion when I might need to use it. Maybe put it down the outside drain, should clean...

To think we are surrounded by sea but desalination plants are too costly to run. Yes that’s always mystified me. And yet other countries have them - and some we’ve been to have tanks outside the property to catch rainfall to use on gardens - the loo etc. … and if HS2 can be built, then why not a pi...
