Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Similar issue to Admin but in my case it's the scarifier. Dug it out of the shed and got ready for the slog of emptying the damn thing every ten seconds and filling/lugging 30-odd rubble sacks to...

Re: The all new slap bang up to date photo of the day 2019!

Lots of things lurking in the pond. Was trying to snap a newt but they move a bit quick and stay under the water. I don't have a polariser for the long lens so if they're not breaking the surface,...

Re: Today, I have been mostly....

Onion sets. Mine are now planted. May well set off the first batch of lettuce on the utility room window sill before they move to the greenhouse or cloches in the veg patch as they're a hardy...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Check the carpeted area carefully. When we had a new sitting room carpet put down last year the fitters left a pen underneath it... Carpetright was not pleased with them when we grumbled and I dare...

Re: Today, I have been mostly....

My dad has tried all sorts of stuff like that and it never kept the wildlife off his veg patch so I think I'll just assume I will have a certain % of wastage each year. Unfortunately.

Re: 1979 Suzuki X5 Long term rebuild

Mmmmmmm..... Two stroke exhausts. Part of me misses them quite a lot.

Re: Today, I have been mostly....

Nicely done Gary. I'll try to get a pic of my raised beds over the weekend - only got the early spuds in so far and the resident foxes, badgers and squirrels keep digging in everything which is...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Started my new contract today and it's back to the fun of a fairly large client. The IT team did not deliver my laptop as one of the internal process was not complete so my user ID has not been...

Re: Proper preparation prevents .....

The "tool kit" on my T100 is.... an allen key. That's it! I really ought to carry a few things just in case but as most of it is electronic now I doubt I'd be able to do much at the side of the...

Re: Today, I have been mostly....

Gary

Try using kitchen roll tubes instead of bog roll for your beans - the longer tubes help the roots more and of course I'm sure you know how amazingly quick the roots start poking out of the...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Dangerous pages these. It's the sort of thing that encourages vigilantes to do their own thing. It only takes one bit of wrong information (intentional or accidental) and an innocent gets a pasting...

Did you read the comments under that article? Hilarious. Every time someone offered a slightly less than complimentary opinion the same bloke leapt to their defence and tried to lamely say that HD...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Cheers Tim. It's an odd existence but it does have it's ups as well as the downs. The office politics are not your problem. No more HR performance reviews. You can (to an extent) pick your jobs...

Re: Boosterplug ?

These are very popular on Triumphs apparently. Often see good reports of how well they work to smooth out snatchy response on earlier EFi twins.

There are several shops that specialise in wide fitting shoes. I can just about get away with Clark's wide fit for formal office shoes but find it difficult with anything else. I've been to a place...

Used to share a house with one when I left university. He had an Astra van and would set out at stupid o'clock in the mornings most days and come back exhausted late in the evening. He enjoyed it...
