As a prelude to buying a pair of shoes (a hateful task), I checked my existing collection for a size reminder. I run from 7 to 10. Helpful it is not. It's a conspiracy to save the high street I tell you.

Shame we aren't all on Paris Points (Size = [last length in cm] x 1.5)

Suspect your feet are about 28.5cm long, which is about a 9/(43) and American sizes are n+1 (unless they are for women, when they are n+1.5)

I wish there were real sizes that related to real measurements!

Have been perusing some Londoncentric motorcycle vlogs - Royal Jordanian & Baron von Grumble if it matters - and it would seem that any black Ford Galaxy within the M25 belongs to Addison Lee . . .

Watching any of those makes me goggle that anybody would drive into London.

Humbrol enamel thinners will remove dried on splashes of EzeDope from spectacle lenses, don't ask, without removing the lens coating.

Whereas if you touch the centre of your lens with liquid poly on your finger nothing will fix it, and yes I do have a blur in the middle of my vision  ::-)

Having just fitted a new stair carpet, I measured the effective depth of tread (front of carpet on the riser to the 'hard' nose of the tread). This was 25cm - my size 13 walking shoes are 34cm! No wonder I wear out the carpet on the nose of the tread.
2x4: thick plank; 4x4: 2 of 'em.

After using a hot-glue gun, it's not a good idea to leave it lying on its side.
I dare eat all that may become a man.
