Self Help Books


Bookshops abound with self help books that promise all kinds of improvements in your life eg; money, health, mental well-being etc.

How To Remove a BottleLox


I had the misfortune to have a bottle of booze delivered the other day with a BottleLox still attached.

The supermarket very kindly credited me for the booze, and left me to my own devices wrt removing the BottleLox.

Easy peasy!

All you need is a knife and fork.

Slip the knife in the base, and ease the contraption upwards.

When resistance is felt, remove the knife and insert the fork.

Use the fork to unlock the second part of the lock and blinkey, blonkey, blimey all done!
