There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

Everybody in Government concered with COVID seems to be patting themselves on the back, and telling us that the pandemic is beaten. Readly? Lots of money has been put into the drugs companies pockets, that's what they really wanted, MONEY,MONEY,MONEY. You have not beaten COVID, not by a long shot.

I am selling an invalid scooter on ebay, who will not allow me to send prospective buyers my address, it is against their rules, but folk keep asking me. Will I accept cash? I have pinned a note to my ad explaining my predicament. ebay keeps saying my item is sold. This firm thinks it's so smart. Yet it is sadly lacking in plain common sense.

All this lecturing from on high about how we shouldn't book any holidays yet is missing one point; many of us had already booked last year's holiday when all this mess occurred, and on the assumption that all would be well by this summer (well who didn't think it would?) simply transferred all the arrangements to this summer.

What are we meant to do? Ask the same travel companies for a second refund or deferment?

COVID-19: Boris Johnson 'very optimistic' all coronavirus restrictions will end in England by 21 June.

It's either this or the country goes into financial depression. I'm waiting to see the shock as the chancellor delivers his next budget. Happy days are ahead.

The thought has just occurred to me that the American firm, Hewlett Packard is spying on all British owners of Hewlett Packard printers & any Russian owners as well. They know when I fit a cartridge, I bought the machine of them all I can do now is dump it. How scary is that?

Do not buy a Hewlett Packard 2622 printer. Never in my life have I been stopped from fixing or altering a product bought and used by me. A Hewlett Packard 2622 printer can only be refilled using a Hewlett Packard ink cartridge. It is like buying a car & only being able to use the manufacturers petrol. What is this country coming to? allowing such American companies to scam their British customers? In the day a peerless grinder was given as a gift if you signed up to use x amount of discs per year, I signed up for that with my eyes open. Hewlett Packard sells printers with a chip installed to scam the customer when the ink runs out. Come on government ban these rip off imports.

"Rishi Sunak ‘plotting £6,000,000,000 raid on personal tax allowance".
Don't worry, every one is going to feel the pain in their pockets as the UK tries to put back the Covid epidemic money drain.

Weather forecasters, poor little things. Russell Grant and the likes would find it hard to predict what day follows Saturday. Weather forecasters are like Astrologists, couldn’t find their own ass if they were bent over.

Would not surprise me one bit to learn premium bond money is being used to fund the Covid crisis. Maybe that’s why the prizes have all but dried up.

This is not a gripe but a heartfelt appreciation of this country we live in I have had my jab Susie has had her jab. Me of the age & her vulnerability. Had we still been a member of the E.U. that would not have happened? The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Covid and it's many mutations. Mother nature clearing out the dead wood making way for the new. Been this way for many millions of years, it's called evolution.
