    What constitutes the perfect cooked breakfast?

    Pesti’s effort which to be fair was a decent effort considering it’s overseas and it gets a neg, this abomination of which there is no excuse for, and it gets an upvote. Standards have clearly slipped on this thread. I blame Ardja for posting all them shit breakfasts people have become immune

    Murder Ballads

    On the road again is indeed a great track and would certainly be in my top 5 all time best. I've been a fan of the blues music of Canned heat for a long time and Alan Wilson was the creativity behind the band and often wrote about life experiences in songs, if you listen to the track "London blues" he sings about a girl who strung him along and then blew him out while he was staying in the city while the band was touring. As for the lyrics for "on the road again", Alan's mother did actually leave him when he was quite young, he was three years old at the time when she walked out on the family and it was quite a few years before he was reconciled with her. Before his untimely death Alan has suffered what would be classed today as "mental health issues" and today would have received the appropriate treatment but in 1970 he was just released back in to the care of another band member Bob Hite with no help or treatment. At the time Canned Heat seemed to be permanently touring and it's written that Alan had long had enough and wanted to quit, the day before he was found dead the other band members were already flying over to England for yet another long tour but Alan never showed up at the airport and after a search was found dead the next day in the woods behind the house where he was living at the time. As for suicide, it is well documented by his friends that Alan used to have trouble sleeping and would take barbiturates to help him sleep, it will never be know whether he intended to take his own life. In my opinion Alan Wilson was probably one of the greatest ever blues harmonica player, something John Lee Hooker agrees with and it was tragic that his life ended at the young age of 27 but one thing is certain, he was no killer.

    Car leasing

    Try the BVRLA website, they will offer guidance on fair wear & tear when returning a lease car. General rule is scratches over 25mm is re-chargeable as is any dents over 10mm in diameter, usually only 1 per panel is allowed. Damage or scratches to alloy wheels over 25mm is usually re-chargeable. Any accident damage or broken lights is re-chargeable plus beware of potential recharge costs for missing spare keys, missing spare wheel/tools in the boot and the worse one is the lack of service history depending what your lease agreement entailed. Check the vehicle in plenty of time before returning in case you need to make any repairs, it also helps if you give the car a good valet inside & out prior to returning. Good luck.
