He seems like a genuinely nice guy but again "being gay is a reason to celebrate and be proud" Why? People don`t celebrate being tall or fat or having black hair, or being straight: shouldn`t it be something that is so normal nobody thinks twice about it? Shouldn`t that be the goal? Bit of a bummer for his wife of 27 years, wonder if she`s `celebrating`? (excuse the pun)

It might have been a sham marriage for the purpose of a cover-up.

Ahem , I celebrate being straight :lol:
And I think we normal people are expected to "celebrate and be proud" of them.........and embrace them as part of our multicultural society........that we are enjoying.
Havn't the cops just shot another knife wielding nut bag up your way ?

Anyhow lying to friends and family , specially the wife ,all that time , doesnt make me think a whole big lot of him :wank: and yet some think he is some sort of hero. "Alls fair in love and war" huh

Anyway, just to conclude this, the WD-40 arrived as expected, very good service from a shop I haven't used before.

One thing I didn't realise is that with Parcelforce who brought it (quite unusual these days with so many other couriers around), if you are not in they don't take it back to a depot/sorting office/main place, instead they take it to your closest post office for you to collect. In my case just a couple of minutes away. Very neat idea that.

Thinking about it, probably 99% of the population couldn't give a hoot about somebody's sexuality. However, as I see it, the 1% of people who are likely to be offended also happen to be Phil's target audience, that's why he probably felt he couldn't come out sooner.

I ordered a carton, as you say an excellent price. It arrived whilst I was out and a neighbour took it in - apparently they knew who it was for as soon as they saw it, because "who else in the block would order an entire gallon of WD40?!".

Great stuff, thanks for posting :) Yes, as you said, it is quite obvious what is in the package! I must have a look at what else that company sells, might be some other real bargains on there.

I`ve bought stuff from them in the past, possibly tools I think. Certainly I was quite happy with service (Can`t remember what, but know I did because I get emails every now and then.)

I don’t really use WD40 I do have a tin but that’s for the stupid hinges on these new PVC plastic doors we have .
I use XCP oil sprays for all them little jobs I did a test with there rust blocker on a outside clock a few years ago and it’s still going strong :beer:

I will call this February’s Top Tip :lol:

That`s interesting to know, might get a tin for `evaluation`. You can never have too many lubricants.
