    Fitting a parrot to a Mercedes SL 350

    Have you had a really good look inside the glovebox? It's on the right side and quite well hidden. My 2003 model had one and I connected my ipoi to it at the time

Walking without any crutches around the house but I do take one crutch for by obligatory walk around the village every day. thankfully the weather has been very good so I've actually enjoyed my walks, something that doesn't come naturally to me. Now it's...

    Nappa leather

    They weren't that cheap either. Top of the range m&s. Most jeans manufacturers recommend washing before wearing. I thought I had but apparently not enough. Just be careful of dye and of course any studs on pockets
