  8. Why is it that having spent ages carefully shaping a seated footplate crew member to fit in a very confined space to the point of sitting perfectly, when one applies super glue and re-inserts, it no longer sits correctly?

      I know the feeling. When flush glazing older coaching stock everything is perfect until I fit the body back onto the chassis, then one of the windows falls inside the coach.

  9. Talking of insurance, I've just had the AA breakdown renewal in and I have to say, who are they kidding, time to change me thinks. 19 years but if I leave now and then come back it would be half the price, apparently they are all at it and an enquiry has been called for. So much for loyality...

      Yes, I had a shock when my buildings insurance came up for renewal after my mortgage was paid off. Previously it had been linked to the mortgage and the premiums rose steadily over the duration. On checking a price comparison site, I discovered I could get the same cover for £300 less than my mortgage bank was charging.

      Yaay. And I thought I was the only one who thought that. Apparently he treats the rest of the gardening world like scum. He is a creepy person.

      You have my sympathies. I have just seen the pictures from Keswick on the news. Just had a sneaky look on the raw computer forecast and the rain does stop soon after midnight, if that is any help.

  20. hopes that the Firm's new office will be away from Ealing Broadway. Fed up being accosted by mendicants, chuggers, Romanian accordion "players" with no discernible musical ability, and "performance sculptors" (also Romanian) who keep building the same bloody cartoon dog out of sand. *rant*

  21. was listening to Hendrix's record of 'All Along the Watchtower' on the radio during the eclipse with Dylan's ghostly lyrics! All very fitting for the occasion. The only other track that would have fitted might have been Spiderbait's 'Ghost Riders in the Sky'!

    1. jonny777

      jonny777

      Actually, if listening to Hendrix you should have been playing Voodoo Chile, which has the line "the night I was born, the moon turned a fire red".

Me: 'No, I can't say that, because today hasn't finished yet if I put some away before today finishes and I say no now then I'd be lying.' Mrs SG: '........... Go away.'
