I honestly can’t remember whether I’ve written about my experiences with dating sites or not, but I thought I’d write a little something now.

I have been a member of Plenty of Fish for some time. It’s a free dating site with a paid subscription service, but much more focus is on the free side. Many of the features are in fact available for free, search, “Meet Me” and full messaging facilities are all free. Unfortunately this also means that you get a lot of people who sign up to use it, give it a week, and then don’t use it. Many don’t remove their account again so this leaves searchable inactive profiles in the search results.
It also means many don’t take the site seriously. I have found some girls on there that were the right match, I guess you could say, but unfortunately it didn’t work out.
For the time spent sending messages and not getting anywhere enough is enough.

I have paid for a subscription dating site, welcome Match.com, probably one of the more well known subscription dating sites. Unlike POF, many of the features are restricted if you don’t pay. You don’t even get messaging functionality. So, this is a go. I’ve just bought into a year sub to a dating site. If I’m not married by next year I’ll sue them…. only joking… or am I?!

The Ultimate Diet Doesn’t Exist!

… So stop wasting all your money.

There are three things that you need to know.

  1. You are what you eat
  2. Eat less
  3. Move more

Want to lose weight, follow those steps.

If you’re looking for a tested and proven 100% free workout check out the following 5BX workout plan as used by the Royal Canadian Airforce: http://gregsadetsky.com/_files/5bx-plan.pdf

You can also buy it for not a lot here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Physical-Fitness-11-minute—day-12-minute-/dp/0140020551/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1334866610&sr=1-1

Remember GDA for men is 2500 calories in total and 2000 for women. That’s including drinks. That is if you’re not already exercising, and is for day-to-day.

For your info a bottle of wine has 500, just to put that into perspective and for those people who don’t eat a lot but go through a bottle or two of wine and wonder why they put on weight. All alcohol has a high sugar level due to the fermentation process.  Then you get things like WKD where they add sugar but that’s another story.

Eat at least 5 fruit and veg a day and aim for 2litres of liquid, make most of it water and orange juice.

That’s all for now, no more excuses!

MG TF Update 9 – Windscreen Washer feeder joint cracked [FIXED]

Cracked elbow joint

Cracked elbow joint

So, as can be seen, the elbow joint had cracked in the cold.

I’d initially thought that the nozzle was blocked, so took a needle to it but on opening the bonnet soon came to realise the issue when washer fluid had coated everything.

Luckily, after taking a quick look at the .org Forum, I found I didn’t need this elbow joint anyway and having removed it, found there was no longer an issue.

One can add heated washer jets (as fitted to later TF’s; read here: http://www.grumpy-monkeh.co.uk/guides.php?selection=Fitting%20heated%20washer%20jets) but I found these to be too expensive.

It has been noted that fitting Citroen jets give a better washer fluid distribution. These aren’t too expensive: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-MG-MGTF-ZR-ZS-ZT-400-45-25-Xsara-Mist-Washer-Jets-/320591172815?clk_rvr_id=324930292787&afsrc=1

For now I shall see how long this ‘free’ mod will last.
