    Gentle warning if you have a dog

    Gentle warning if you have a dog and shop at Sainsbury's. They are sending out treat boxes which contain chocolate coins and 'gold pearl' cake decorations. Luckily we have an outside on the wall letterbox otherwise the dog would have destroyed the packaging and eaten the edibles.

    3.5 ton AUTOMATIC Horsebox

    I don't suppose anyone has an Automatic Horsebox for sale - they seem like hen's teeth but worth asking.
