I have an Epson printer and there is an offer to take out a subscription for their inks.
I know that it works by reading the chip on the ink cartridge and will send you inks by post when required. But my question is do I need to leave my printer on permanent standby for this to happen? I prefer to turn off my printer when not in use and when I go away turn off all non essential electrical items as I don't like leaving things on standby.

My mother-in-law told me she had all her teeth removed when pregnant with her first child. This was in 1942/3.

She said it was because pregnant women often experienced dental problems. But I think her teeth were not in a very good condition anyway.

I am left handed as are several of my family. I do loathe the expression cack handed and find it very offensive. Another out dated expression I can't bear is hare lip when referring to someone with a cleft lip.

Good episode. Marvin seemed genuinely shocked by the fact his black ancestor kept slaves.

I think he and his mum may have found a new hobby  :)

I'm also a Corrie fan. It's the only soap I watch now. I do agree about the bed hopping, I feel it shows a lack of imagination by the writers.
