Anything but that!

I don't know how much Council Tax you guys pay these days, but I just paid our annual bill......€170.

It was only €120 when we came here in 2005......but still got to be a lot cheaper than back there.

They've just introduced having to pay for garden waste removal in Preston I believe. Here in Chorley it's still included yet it's only a few miles down the road.

Here in Spain there's communal bins virtually every 100 yards.

Drop the bag in there and they're emptied overnight every night!

Ooh we should start a forum treasure hunt and try and find a thread that hasn't gone off topic. winner gets a bag of limes!

I'm guessing most of the ones you've commented on recently are about them going off topic so that narrows down my starting points :lol: :lol:

Absolutely,, you'll find one from 9 days ago where i asked what the thread was actually about? a simple question given the title (a review) and then looking at the subject matter (an organised meet) I felt I should ask this as the new 'morphed' topic was possibly being missed, hidden as it was.

My comment here wasnt a criticism.. I dont normally begin a criticism by declaring amusement.

I think its hysterical that a thread about forum software has morphed into one about council tax. and felt it worth mentioning. I think these kinds of things are really very funny as they appeal to my rather perverse sense of humour.
