The Hudle 2 has been a good piece of kit.I replaced the battery in mine about a year ago(not too difficult) and I have recently changed the charger board-I ordered a new one yesterday and it arrived this morning,unfortunately the Hudle is still dead...I will have to decide to purchase a new battery or look for an alternative tablet.

Mine was in superb condition + excellent battery life, when it refused to wake up one evening, about an hour after I'd last used it. Wouldn't charge either. CEX offer a £48 fixed-price repair service which I used but they emailed me a couple of days ago stating 'cannot be repaired', and consequently please collect and there will be no charge.

The thought of putting all those useful apps on whatever I replace it with horrifies me.
Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:

Ive only ever seen Worcestershire sauce made by Lea and Perrins, but I do know production had been moved to Brum. Talking of Worcestershire I stayed in a hotel in Malvern about 10 years ago. There were bottles of Malvern water in the room, there are taps on the hills where you can help yourself!!!

Just opened our 25 year old Swarfega and it smells just as sweet. Shame you can't buy scented candles with that smell, ideal for garages and sheds :)

I also remember the smell of hurricane lamps, was that some sort of lamp oil as the smell of paraffin (from the old heaters) was quite different?

But has it turned into a liquid rather than a gel. I replaced mine with an 'improved' version a couple of years ago. but later discovered the improvement was the addition of millions of tiny plastic beads which is now justifiably frowned on.

Still the same 'interesting' smell though.

Not quite liquid but less gel like.

Didn't the plastic beads replace pumice to help save the environment? Mind you all forests trees lost to plant pumice trees which then had to be felled to make way for plastic bead trees. Maybe they should use poppy seed instead?

The best hand cleaners contain some sort of fine sand.

I tend to use fairy liquid and salt, when nothing else is available...
Yes, I'm back(ish).

Wet wipes are brilliant for many substances but useless against Plumbers Mait which seems to defy most cleaning fluids! Otherwise washing liquid for hands that do dishes and a worn green scourer, the type with the sponge.

To head off many problems, especially cement, which seems to really affect my fingers, we use those cheap blue plastic gloves which are also great for handling raw chicken and chopping chillies and onions whose smell seems to have a half life similar to TCP!

I did gargle TCP neat once when I had tonsillitis so bad it was preventing me sleeping. It took the pain away almost instantly, well, once I stopped the initial screaming, and managed many hours sleep but I lost any sense of taste for a few days. Luckily the antibiotics kicked in soon after.

Washing up liquid is brilliant at cleaning spectacles.
