It's incredible. Get them both done at the same time though as can sometimes make you feel a bit unbalanced.

Dan the microsuction is better than syringing.

If you have compacted wax in your ears syringing will not remove it, but microsuction will.

Neither of them hurt you.

I get mine done every 4 months, it can be done in most audiologists places nowadays €80 for both ears or if they only find wax in one ear it's €50. :)

****ing pot holes. Hit an asteroid crater on Monday when it was dark. Saw it late because of the light and had no choice because of oncoming cars. So not only a new tyre but found out today it has buckled the rim of my car too. Lovely. God knows how many ppl got done on it, I saw a guy with 2 flats further up the road and there has been about 14 comments on the fixmystreet website for the same hole. They had promptly filled it in by Tuesday morning when I returned to get a good picture too. :x

The Andrex advert where unbelievably obnoxious children describe how clean something is with non-sensical analogies like “as clean as a spoon in a circus”

Charge the council for the work that you've needed to get done and if they won't comply threaten them with legal action. A mate of mine did this and they refused to comply until the solicitors got involved. They couldn't pay up quick enough after that as they didn't want it to go to court.

Yeah I fully intend claiming that is for sure. It has pissed me right off. The only thing I worry about is I haven't got that many pictures of the damage and like I said it was partly filled in by the morning. Was too dangerous and dark to get anything when it happened.

****ers who start every statement with "So," and also the same people who end every sentence as if asking a question due to their vocal tone. ****ers.

Comedy ****ing plumbing. The ***** who did my house must have searched high and low to find as many non-standard fixtures, fittings and pipe sizes as they could.

I'd finally psyched myself up to replace the downstairs furnace only to find that the useless ***** had used 2-1/2" pipe for the flue. Not 2" or 3" which you can buy anywhere, but 2-1/2" which I have to special order.

As the house is as old as me, I suspect the ****ers responsible are long dead so I'm making do with cursing them and hoping that they are rotting in hell.

I've even seen posts on forums starting with "So". I ignore them even if I know the answer.

So, even if it meant that by ignoring this post you would be responsible for your nearest and dearest dying a horrible, painful death, you would still ignore it?

The fact that there are adverts from "My Blacky" on this site.

Don't we all get adverts that correspond with other browsing history?

The missus used this computer during the week, to find and book a holiday. Ever since, the ads I am seeing here are nearly all holiday-related.

As I've posted probably too often, my youngest has been quite poorly for the last few years and has a run of rotten luck.

We bought him a couple of kittens to give him some focus, and companionship on the days when he can't leave the house. He was particularly fond of Pedro, who was half cat, half monkey.

This morning Pedro was hit by a car outside the house and made it as far as the doorstep before he passed away. Poor kid just can't get a break.
