  1. Frankie greyhound & Pipper the springer spaniel
  2. I don't like that my greyhound ripped her dew claw this morning, after it got snagged by her collar ID tag, whilst she was trying to scratch her ear. 😬 Rural West Dorset vets fees are seemingly almost double suburban East Dorset vets too!
  3. I do like that a fortnight into owning it, I can't find anything yet that is wrong with my Mondeo. My greyhound likes she can finally lay across the back seat without having her legs hemmed in by the doors
  4. Thanks Gordon I think I was last on the forum in late 2017. I see there's quite few new members since then; but then again it is 2½ years or so
  5. That's a good idea.👍 Several houses on my searches have enough room to build a double garage or add a second one. It's relatively easy to build a garage i had thought about doing a self-build but rural land that is not green belt is prohibitive in comparison to town land. One tiny plot on the edge of Milton Abbas which would've actually been too small for anything other than holiday let, went for £¼million at auction last month - the guide price was £150,000
  6. Good to see you too Jamie! I'm in excellent health, how have you been? I've still got both my Foci, my business and my springer spaniel Pipper. I still volunteer at Margaret Green Animal Rescue mainly at the Dog Centre Quiet a few changes since I was last on forum. I lost my Mum last July to adanced dementia & Molly my cat in march 2019 I adopted a retired Irish greyhound Frankie from the rescue. I'm looking to move to a smaller house but in a more rural part of Dorset/Somerset/Devon. My 4 bedroom house is a bit too big for me and 2 dogs
  7. Nice to see you're still on here, how have you been Tom? My late mum's dementia got worse & worse whilst my business expanded, leaving me little free time Still got both my Foci & am considering getting a Transit or Luton to turn into a camper
  8. Pipper breathing loudly & slightly whistling whilst she snoozes under my desk
  9. I do not like that I can't seem to find a small house with a drive, double garage & large enclosed back garden in rural North Dorset ,North East Devon or South Somerset on any of the property finding websites There seem to be plenty in Camarthenshire & Eire though, both of which are going to present a challenge as to how I would actually do a viewing, at the moment
  10. There's loads of single girls in the 20 something age bracket working in animal welfare, around 90% of the workforce are 20 somethings. At the rescue I volunteer at, I can think of at least 4 who are single, one of whom is 27 this year. None have kids, nor are divorced but they all have at least one dog, most have 2 & a few have cats & horses
  11. Seat Belt Length Adjuster
  12. Pipper springer spaniel & Frankie greyhound
  13. On her very first day with me, my greyhound Frankie acquired all the TV remotes, took them to her hall duvet & painstakingly removed all the rubber buttons!
  14. My greyhound Frankie seems to prefer car shows too. Frankie doesn't like sudden howler monkeys calling out on nature programs Whereas, Pipper the springer spaniel appears to watch with interest (tilting her head), her professional cousin spaniels find "things" on Police Interceptors &Traffic Cops
  15. A spudger is one of those tools, once you've got, you've no idea how you managed without it before! I bought my Elu ST84EK jigsaw as bucket of disassembled parts for £5 off ebay. It had only been used once, the seller had broken the casing when it fell down 5 flights of stairs on to a concrete floor. He'd dismantled it to replace the casing but then decided to buy another one, instead of reassembling it. He's paid more for a new casing than he sold the saw for!
  16. I don't like how time consuming running Pipper's social media accounts are. When I started in October I thought it would just be uploading a couple of photos daily and commenting on them, per account: 10 minutes daily I wrongly thought! As her 'followers increase the time interacting with them grows. I must spend around 3-4 hours a day doing it, off and on, now I don't like how awkward it is to open some electric items, not sensibly screwed together: but with a multitude of plastic latches that you don't want to break doing it. My Philips shaver that stopped working with a known fault, in this case. Unlike Philips Australia/Asia who exchange the faulty unit even though it's out of warranty for free: Philips Europe, have a non-refundable handling charge even just to look at it! As it's known fault with battery pcb (dry joints) I thought I'd do it myself, and whilst I'm inside it, change the battery for a new one, at a cost of a third of Philips handling charge. Finally got it open using a combination of Bojo tools, a spudger and an old Sainsbury loyalty card. Only broke one latch on the internal battery compartment out of 7.
  17. It's not just cats Japan has another island overrun with rabbits too
  18. I keep motherboard and video card boxes for that: everything else gets shredded as a compost ingredient. Although bigger boxes can also be used to line the recycling wheelie bin: keeping the bin interior pristine. The boxes Pipper's chicken carcases come in are an exact fit for the wheelie bin like bespoke liners
  19. I don't like Twitter posting embedded videos "as Pipper" on her Twitter account. Whilst they are quite funny videos, they're not related to Pipper's content. When you're running a Twitter account as a marketing tool, for a future animal charity fundraising campaign, 2 minutes of people lighting their body gas emissions, or skateboarders being chased by angry members of the public aren't relevant. I can't exactly find what I need to do stop them doing it. I thought was related to 3rd parties accessing the app, if you revoke 3rd party permissions, the app doesn't work. Twitter is a lot easier to use with the app than with a PC/laptop Turning the app off and only posting from one of PCs, doesn't make any difference. So, it can't be the app, anyway Enabling various privacy settings, again, doesn't stop it. When you look at the "media" tab on Pipper's profile, the embedded videos aren't there, just the photos I've uploaded of Pipper. They aren't deletable as they aren't officially my media: but they do seem to expire after about 8-12 hours. However, I would like them not to have appeared in the first place.
  20. I've seen iphone boxes go for as much £20, which is quite remarkable for what is a small cardboard box!
  21. The Lexus? Is it a diesel one then?
