(Remember that 20% VAT is added to the sum of what you paid for the machine, plus shipping, plus duty (if any) and there is probably also going to be a handling fee charged by H...

Re: Thruppeny bits

£2 coin. Did you know the Royal Mint still makes a small number of thruppences? Something to do with them being needed as part of Maundy Money sets. Once we get through this Brexit business, maybe we can have a referendum on returning to a currency based on £-s-d? That will challenge the digital gen...

Re: Mills wing nut gone missing
