Lost track of the number of times the old duffer came out with 'not only' without ever seemingly getting to the punchline - all for a cheapo box set of Elvis CDs you can pick up almost anywhere. A wonderful 'momentum' apparently! Goodness knows what he was talking about - my two year old niece is more coherent!

Then on to a ring that looked like something that had fallen out of a Xmas cracker. Snapped up for almost seventy quid! Goodness, some people must have more money than sense. :talking:

I'm 100% certain Elvis spins around in his grave when they have 'Elvis' events on at Bid.

Good luck if you get it.

It must be true, as the world renowned Elvis authority Peter Simon keeps saying so. :taphead:

Were always been told to go & get it valued , if you took that lot to a jeweler you'll be lucky to get a tenner for all of them .

I reckon if you took that lot to a jeweller for a valuation, you'd get one of two reactions, they'd either tell you not to waste their time and to "Get out and take this pile of junk with you", or they'd laugh so heartily and thank you for making their day!

I still don't understand how they fetched so much! They were so obviously trash! And whilst slightly off topic I know, does ANYONE really wear gold plated gent's jewellery? You see these god awful plated chains, and id bracelets that they say would be ideal as a special birthday present, but for whom may I ask? I know not everybody can afford the real thing, but from what I've seen most people would prefer to scrimp and save, buy from a catalogue, put on plastic to be able to buy their son or their hubby a piece of jewellery that isn't going to deteriorate in looks and turn their neck/wrist and interesting shade of green!

Elvis Memorabilia is made for Bid, it dosen't get much tackier does it? I know he was a well loved entertainer (if you like that sort of thing) but the vulgarity of the whole trade in his memory is a dream for a seriously downmarket TV Retailer like Sit Up. A match made in heaven i'd say.

I wonder if Elvis would have liked the Lapis, Gold Plated BRASS ring on sale now?

BRASS!!!

I can honestly say Nikki I have never, ever heard of a gold plated, brass ring.

Maybe this is what we can next expect Tanzanite to be set in?

Lovely throw, being wrapped up in nylon will certainly keep you warm though.

Is it just me or are they now regularly saying 5-10 days for delivery, I have heard this several times now. Didn't it used to be 5 days but now possibly 10 days?, even worse ripoff.

An update on the purchases of Mikeyboy......

He paid 45 for a handheld vac for his flat in Kent some years back. Later he said 40, he couldn't remember whether it was 40/45 but that's neither here nor there because it wasn't a patch on the one he was demonstrating for a tenner :rolleyes: although they did have to cut away when the 'easy pop back filter' wouldn't pop back :whew:

I fancy that the Tiger Throw, in a addition to a selection of Elvis jewellery and a few Gayford prints would make for a bold personality statement in 2013.

Don't forget these boots to finish the look for a new year, new you. Tempted Momma?

I think she's just become a "watcher" of the forum now after her very rude outburst the other eve Woosie. :wink: Quite right too cos if she starts a thread or comments on anyone else's I will simply ignore her! She simply isn't worth giving my time or opinion to. If she ever comments again I may refer to a post from someone else and carry on a conversation purposely excluding her from it. It's what a disrespectful person who posts a comment like that deserves imo!


Well said Nikki. Even if Moet does just 'lurk' rather than participate they're going to have to get used to reading the comments we make and they're going to have to 'suck it up' (as the young ones say nowadays!)
I could suggest that it's an ideal opportunity for some winding up but I'm far too mature and responsible for that sort of behaviour! :grin::angel:
But I agree that if Moet does get as rude and disrespectful as they did the other night then we just ignore it, don't give a troll the satisfaction of rising to their bait.

Isn't it odd that the few (two?) supporters of Bid sadly degenerated into such nastiness to forum members?

I know some of our comments about the presenters are sometimes acerbic but everyone is so pleasant to each other that the nasties seem to stick out like a sore thumb.

Strange isn't it. I wonder why that might be?

It's almost as if some of our comments have hit a nerve.

I know we can be a little blunt and as you say Wirral 'acerbic' at times but we're never malicious or vindictive and we don't make it personal.
I think we know the 2 people you're referring to and they really have come across as very aggressive. There's a saying 'the lady doth protest too much' and imho I think these 2 people are close to particular presenters in some way so won't hear any criticism of them. Unfortunately they go over the top and it gets nasty. That's my theory anyway!

FP, there's a serious gap in your knowledge here :mysmilie_510:
An egg dehumidifier is a dehumidifier in the shape of an egg only a bit larger. It absorbs moisture from the atmosphere and I believe it changes colour when it's reached the maximum capacity of moisture it can absorb you just put it in the microwave to dry it out then it can be used again.
Consider yourself educated FP, don't you feel richer for knowing this now!!

The famous egg dehumidifier. Has anyone on the forum actually bought this? A ceramic egg shaped object which is filled with silica gel and is supposed to dehumidify a room such as a kitchen. This thing is only passive and not active! It is supposed to somehow magically suck moisture out of the air and eliminate condensation. I can't for the life of me believe that it can really work in anything but a very tiny area. Then when the gel becomes saturated with all of the moisture that it absorbs, you are supposed to put it in the microwave to dry it out. Then of course, the moisture is released back into your home again. What a load of useless rubbish!

They might be ok to put into a small cupboard, or wardrobe, but I can't see they'd do anything that would even touch the de-humidification of an entire room! Why do they think people spend hundreds of pounds on enormous clunking machines with great big water chambers? They must believe we that us, the silly punters don't realise that for 1p + 7.99 + 1.53 you can get the same results...we need to be educated!
