    Amazon.co.uk is amazing! I order all my stuff in Europe from them - one of the reasons I totally hate the idea of Brexit! Because with the EU Single Market you can order all you want as a private citizen across borders without tolls&tariffs - and that will be over if the UK leaves. But I'm rooting on Amazon.co.uk. opening a Amazon.ie subsidiardy because somewhere I read that their share of EU orders is indeed high enough to make a serious dent in turnover.

    Tunein is a pretty good music or podcast app. You can tune into your area or places around the country. I am not sure if the free version is as good or better for smartphones ....alas I like using Tunein on my Xbox One.

    You can browse and search for music or talk ....plus I can kill time and listen while I fold the laundry, lol.

    I'm stumped by a simple but annoying issue: finding men's briefs is a size bigger than XL. Department stores stop at Xl. A couple of basic clothes type stores that carry bigger sizes in some items also stop at XL. I hate to shop Wal-Mart because of their labour practices, but I checked and saw a couple of packages of one basic style, but was hoping for more options.

    Guys, help me out, other sources for 2XL (and up) briefs?

    @Tad It looks like you may have to mail order men's briefs online from a B&T outlet. For members living in New Zealand (because we have the same problem), H&H boxers and other styles of men's briefs are available in sizes up to 6XL are available at the Warehouse. When I come across a good find in larger clothes, I always share it with a photo on Facebook, for my many big friends, who have less time to shop than I do. So, here's me sharing 5XL boxers:

    And my confession is that, although moved to help my fellow fat men to find good deals in clothing, I'm secretly moved to show off how big I am. The boxers in the photo are 5XL. I take 6XL in most other things but I find that buying underpants a size smaller increases belly bulge, which I like (another confession). For the same reason, I leave tags off clothes and size-marked coat hangers from menswear stores lying around. I'm just a big showoff.

    I may have a reprieve to my briefs situation. A bit of power shopping disclosed that Stanfields brand run half a size bigger than Jockey and other brands (I.e. an Xl is rated for 42-44" in Stanfields, but 40-42" in jockey.). I think that should be enough to be more tolerable. So as long as I can find Stanfields and don't get bigger .... (Maybe I shouldn't have had that butter chicken poutine while I was shopping).

    I'm still going to keep looking for options, to be on the safe side.
