Ahem,,,,,, steam is invisible so not the right sign to look for........

laugh.gif good point. I'll put it this way, if your car is running and the amount of fumes/smoke/steam/moisture/whatever you want to call it, is coming out in plumes then you'll generally have blown a head gasket

How much does a car mechanic roughly earn a year?

Not much! Depends on your level, i earn under £5 a hour, while those at the very top can earn around £15 a hour. average is around £10 a hour so do your maths

For the amount they charge for a service about 2-3 million robbing barstewards

Depends on the size of car. Your right if it's a Ka though

How much would a taxi cost, roughly, from Falkirk to Stirling at the end of a night out?

I may be looking at getting one on my own on Thursday... my wallet is not looking forward to it.

I would suggest getting the yellow pages out and phoning taxi firms in Falkirk.

It's not there, I'll delete and install it again to see if that works. Cheers anyway though

You are looking between £20-25.

Normally my mates and I who are back at our olds' houses for Christmas go down the local but it's been shit last couple of years, thinking of Ashton Lane, I know they close it off and do tickets for New Year but Is Christmas Eve just a normal night, ie can you just stoat along and into the pubs as usual? Is it any busier than your normal Friday or Saturday night?

Google has no answers for the tickets bit.

Cheers Keith. That was what I reckoned, but it's always good to get a second opinion.

I am almost £20 from Falkirk to Dunipace. I honestly would stick £30-£35 aside for the taxi. It's a complete rip-off mad.gif

Am I right in thinking that if you cant give blood you cant donate bone marrow?

I've done it a few times and have set a price before the journey started. Think the most I paid was £30, though Stenny is marginally nearer Stirling.

I imagine it would depend on why you can't give blood, if it's because you are anaemic then I don't think they would take marrow from you for your own health.

If you are Ill or on medication then the recipient will probably be so vulnerable that the I don't think the doctors would take the chance that you might pass something on.

Contacting the professionals is the only way to be sure.

I paid £35 for a taxi from Banchory to Aberdeen on Friday. That was a set fare which I brought down from £40 for a 17 mile trip. Not sure if taxis down your way are cheaper though.
