A survey published in the Herald Sun newspaper today has found almost two in five drivers admitting they can't change a tyre.

Has anyone tried to put a trampoline together? We got a round trampoline for the kids a few years back and thought it would be a simple D.I.Y. task to put it together. Wrong!
Hours later with the circular steel frame still not connecting and my wife and I getting increasingly agitated at each other, I was calling the manufacturer's helpline to get advice.
