I use buses fairly regularly.... I am very impressed with the school children who use the buses in this area, yes they are very loud and excitable and very slow at getting on and off but they are polite and well behaved. I never hear swearing I have never had reason to feel intimidated. What area/c...

Central heating recommendations?

I'm looking to get a new boiler installed and either get the radiators flushed or replaced. Does anyone have any recommendations for a reliable central heating firm?

I recently got myself a bike and I can hand on heart say I'm not guilty on all charges. It drives me mad seeing red lights being jumped... I stop because a)there's a red light and b)I'm unfit, I'm glad of the rest. I've had other cyclists shout at me for being in their way at red lights (this is usu...

Life must be awful for you.

Try taking your middle class values to the Queen Adelaide in Penge, ask for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some ciabatta and pesto nibbles, talk LOUDLY about how much your house is worth then bemoan the lack of a good deli in Maple Road.

You'll soon meet new people.

If by anti-social you mean drug dealing along Springfield Road, yeah, I've noticed it. Nothing that a few cans of Stella and a baseball bat won't sort out mind.

Re: new mexican restaurant

That signage, so tacky. Hardly likely to appeal to the young professional middle classes living in Sydenham. Maybe a slightly more subtle sign and an armed bouncer on the premises with orders to shoot on sight anyone called Wayne or Tracey who looks like they don't work as a consultant, earn over 5...

My general opinion of estate agents is unprintable. Credit where it's due though, George Proctor & Partners were nothing less than totally professional when I bought my place.

I went there for 2 years. 2 years of R'n'b, KissFM and 'urban' music to someone who hates, no DESPISES that stuff with a passion was too much. I tried, I really did.

I plan to start a gym that plays nothing but guitar music. LOUD guitar music.

Hardly a comparison - they're building across country, out lot are trying to upgrade an antiquated infrastructure through one of the most densely populated areas of Europe. I doubt you could get from the east end of Paris to the southern suburbs at 200mph.
