We were sitting in Pi yesterday, enjoying a pie and a pint and just happened to notice the price of christmas trees in the shop next door - £40 for a 4ft tree!
Is this normal, or is it just because we were in Chorlton and it was probably an organic/vegan/free-range/sustainable/hugged tree?
Not necessarily - it depends upon the quality. Tesco's sells trees for both less and more than that. The trouble is that a Xmas tree is such an infrequent buy, it always comes as a shock when you have to buy another 15 years later after inflation has taken its toll.
I have a couple of those leeds Dale, the problem is matching the radio to line levels or something as the audio chips are quite sensitive in HF amatuer gear and could possibly blow the PA amps within...
