Re: A night with a Monkey.

Sounds like you had a blast. They look like fun, but they're just too expensive. And 70 mph with 11 miles on the clock!?!

Re: AVIVA Insurance

There is no loyalty these days. Existing customers are seen as cash cows to be milked. They'll be too lazy to move, so stiff them as much as you csn.
