Re: and today i have mostly been...

You're right steve, I've gone from making a joke about it to thinking "sh*t this will get bad real quick". I've become very mindful about touching anything but I've actually always opened shop doors with my foot or elbow where possible. I'm not an OCD sufferer by any means, I just don't like other p...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

What's all this? A brand new car that needs 'servicing' :frown: ~~~~~~~ "we bought a new car because we were fed up with all the 'repair' bills" ~~~~~~~~ Our Citroen had 'sort of' been smoked in, the MIL used to sit in it with the door/window open and smoke (was somewhere to sit and have a fag when ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Hey them cats are distracting them kids from learning that English! Bailes I also think perhaps Option 2 'the refund' and a rethink. My fear with a Jeep brand would be it depreciating too fast? We* still haven't decided what to replace the C4 with, it's a mine field out there, prices are stupidly hi...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've never had a petrol mower engine failure despite virtually zero maintenance. Why worry about it? But but the manufacturer says to change the oil every 50 hours of engine use or risk a custodial sentence. Like bailes there I do feel kinda smug and superior with fresh oil in the sump. The 'shitte...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Ahhh a freshly-oiled 4-stroke garden machinery pez engine, you'll notice the difference* in performance! actually it should smell a bit better. Hope you've cleaned the air filterage? My modern Mountfield hasn't got a sump plug :roll: I don't let that stop me though I just invert the thing and drain ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I have nothing but admiration for people wot can grow stuff. I iz clueless. Wellll, you might wanna start cultivating - when that there Covid-19 takes hols you'll be trapped in your own home scratching around for food stuffs. Come to think of it; when you run out of firewood that door will keep it ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

the idea is you want one stem (vine?) going straight up, they often side shoot from leaf joints and these are what you want to pinch out. Otherwise it does end up like a bush, have lots of small toms and a propensity to fall over in a breeze. You're meant to let the plant grow 5 or 6 bunches of tom...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

My late Father In Law_Welly tried explaining to me (over the phone) how to 'nip' Tomato plants early on in growth so they spread out more? or something? I never did understand but yo get more tommy's - you have to pinch off one or two new shoots before or after the last leaf? Consequently mine grew ...

Orders. Understood! over the years I have probably forced my own choices onto the lovely Mrs_Welly (I even redecorated the entire house about 8 years ago in my choices of colour/style) but more recently I tend to just go with what she wants (broadly) :supafrisk: Then again we may be browsing 'stuff...

https://i.imgur.com/pWoKiCn.jpg?3 I'm often criticised for being, err, critical, so let's stay with this vibe.....I admire your woodworking skills there; nicely mitred Architrave and a professional look.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Got fed up waiting to hear from the garage so paid them another visit, "Oh, he's off sick, he'll definitely call you Monday" It could be just timing, my MOT/Diagnostic Guru man sometimes gets in a bit of a state trying to do too much....or taking on a job that quickly turns to shyte.... I'm sure th...

Rear springs have co-axial shock absorbers, (like a mcpherson strut).
Take 'em off the car, spring compressors, take cover....
Bugger, that's a bit unusual for rears, is the 'snapped spring' just the last tiny curly bit sitting in the carrier?
