#492911 Any Sparkies On Here? Outside Pir Question

Posted by Turvey on 05 June 2015 - 08:20 PM

I much preferred Mark's first suggestion of just disconnecting the 'switch wire'. Even I would have managed to do that safely   :) 


Anyway, spoke to the sparky doing the house next door, same company but different guy, and showed him the pics and he reckons it won't be a major job to sort if we get a light we like  ;)


Cheers for all the info even though 90% of it went right over my head. Shows what a good forum this is  B)

#484897 Parking Charge Petition

Yes sorry. I should have said it better. 


Seeing people in lifted pickups climbing in and out whilst parked in a disabled space boils my p***!!! 

#484094 Serious Question For Logical And Clever People

Posted by Turvey on 09 May 2015 - 06:59 AM

You say you used to work for that company and that you are leaving the industry they are connected too. You've got nothing to lose but anyone staying in one of those places has the chance to lose something really special ie a life! 


It's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. The advice given in the post above by Jeremyc seems to be spot on. But maybe start by deleting this thread  ;)


Good luck in what you choose to do.

No point, they can indicate and still stuff it up. I find people are very good at indicating left to go straight on, because they think they need to indicate at least one junction before.

They do the exact opposite up here! Indicate right to go straight ahead! ie 2nd exit on a 4 way roundabout. Does my head in especially when I've had to bring 30 odd tons of truck to a complete halt to allow the 'indicating right' vehicle to cross in front only for it to indicate left at the last minute and exit from the junction I'm sitting at!!!!!  :censored:

Keep it SORN'ed until it's ready for the road and when applying for tax tell them then?

I'm sure I've posted this before but here's one of mine. An ambigram containing our 4 kids names.

And why are duvets about 1 cm longer one side than the other. Either make them square or blatantly rectangular. It does my head in getting a king size duvet in, smoothed and ready to find its in sideways and I have to start the entire process again.


In my experience I've found that 'usually' there's a tag sewn into the bottom seam  ;)

#475168 Your Realistic Next Car?

Posted by Turvey on 11 April 2015 - 11:51 AM

I also really like the new Mustang, except its over 5 grand more expensive, and might not be as practical as the Mondeo. And it may also attract the wrong kind of attention. The Mondeo is more of a 'sleeper'.


You've got to ask yourself the question though. When your speaking about cars in the pub and someone asks what you drive, what sounds better?

"I drive a Mondeo" or "I drive a Mustang!" :)

#474814 Any Openreach Employees Here?

Posted by Turvey on 09 April 2015 - 09:58 PM

Cheers for that Zico, it seems that at at least some of the fault this time WAS Openreach's, I got a couple more emails from OR requesting more details and was sent a map as well of the street to confirm our house  :)  got another email then confirming that the system was updated and to go ahead with the order.


I was going to do that tonight but was beaten to it by Talktalk, who phoned me this afternoon..................to tell me that due to a 'known bug in their system' the postcode wasn't recognised and they couldn't tell me when/if it was going to be fixed so would have to cancel the order!!! Pity they didn't tell me that a month ago  :rolleyes:


Thinking I'll be going with Plusnet now. A couple of pals are with them and brag up the service AND the after-service.


So watch this space  :wacko:  :blink:  :unsure:

Paints seen better days, the rear axle's bent and one of the bonnet hinges is broken but apart from that it's OK  B)


























Found it today, it's probably the only way I'll ever own a bit of American muscle!  :rolleyes:  :D  :D  :D
