Average age of a 1st time buyer is now 43 according to bbc news a min ago

All being well, I'll be 20 years under average, nice. :coolsmiley:

Ive had this £8.00 B and Q one up for about 3 years and its been fine. Cant see the electicity bit matters as it only comes when an intruder approaches etc. (Not constant usage).
