    That's what he meant by 'spiking'. Something sharp and pointy.

    Sorry to hear your need to stay dry. At least you are OK. We bumped into a friend that worked in the next door unit - his wife is very ill and has been a long time. She is still with us but he said his brother had died. His brother lived in Florida and was a Trump supporter and didn't believe in the virus and had not had the jab.

    Sad, the virus believed in him!

    Lack of communication. In this day and age there is no excuse for it!
    Got e-mails from a car breaker telling me my old heap was being collected today. Fine. Got text saying collection will be between 8 and 9.30am. Fine.
    10.45am I text the driver asking for update. No answer.
    11.15am call driver and it goes to voice mail.
    Phone head office, get told they will follow up and call me back.
    12.25am Still nothing, call office and get told that a different branch is dealing with it and they have e-mailed them but not received and answer.
    Get transferred to other office who admit they have had the e-mail and e-mailed the drive (as the drivers never answer the phone.)
    Office e-mails driver again asking for him to contact me.
    15 mins later and still nothing.

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Didn't know Hermes did scrap car collection. Wonder whose bin they'll dump it behind?

    I have been waiting over a week for a part for my combi-boiler.
    Luckily we have a hot water cylinder, a couple of electric heater and a wood burner in the living room, but even so the structure of the house is getting colder and colder.

    This 'document' has been cobbled together by our local IFCA to explain that lobster pots don't damage chalk at all and we're terrible fibbers to say that they do. Most of the video is unwatchable, but I just sat through all 16 edited minutes of clip 5 where they claim the rope between the pots is 'floating 1m above the seabed'. It isn't, it's pulled taut across features which stand 1m high, cutting down wherever it touches at roughly 2 minutes, 4.30, 8.30, 9, 10.30, 13.30, 15, 15.30 into the video and those are just the bits they bother to look at. The stretch they've chosen to film has already been smashed flat by repeated pot strikes, the same video on proper chalk gullies would have been much more depressing.

    I hate people.
