OH MY GOD, THE NANNY STATE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's be honest, we do use far too many plastic bags and, as sheps says, they don't really need to be used as rubbish bags.

I'm getting really fed up with people moaning about the nanny state whenever the government does something to force a change which is in everybody's best interests. They did it over seat belts, they're doing it over the more sensible health and safety issues and love to do it over environmental issues.

I once overheard an American moaning about a proposal to limit the amount of water which can be used when flushing a toilet. His comment was that it was his "God dammed right to use as much water as I want!"

With attitudes like this, no wonder legislation is needed.

To answer your question more accurately (rant finished), yes, I try to limit the number of bags I use, but having a scheme like this starting in this town soon, I'll not have very much choice about it anyway.

There is no legal restriction on hiring a car after passing your test, in the UK at least.

But, you may well find that a lot of hire companies will not consider you until you have held your licence for at least a year.

Depends on the basis under which you were looking after them.

If you were doing them a favour, then unless there was some agreement, it's down to you.

On the other hand, if you had agreed to look after them for money, or with the owners paying your costs, not only can you refuse to return them, you could also take them to small claims court.

There is a new virus going about that effects windows computers, which can get round passwords etc. I don't know if it can cause this problem, but try logging on to microsoft.com and getting an update check done, as there's a patch on the site.

You can always uninstall avg, then when you reinstall, it should scan straight away.

Simple, they don't have to justify it.

This is a case of supply and demand, if people are willing to pay this price then they will continue to charge it.

It hurts, but it's the cost of living in a capitalist country. As I keep saying to my wife, when can we go back to Cuba? 20p for a pizza, 15p for a fresh pineapple, 10p for avocados as big as roasting potatoes.
