Re: and today i have mostly been...

Stop the rot pt.1 That afternoon I had to go shopping, but before I left Miloš as me for my chainsaw. Well, ok, but if you go near the walnut I'll use it to cut your legs off... When I came back he'd cut out the rotten board at the bottom of the l/h wall: https://i.imgur.com/gftCjiO.jpg He then lef...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Pigsty floor I thought the plan would be to dig all the floors out, ram in a load of rubble and concrete over the top. Well, of course, they don't do it like that here. Miloš wondered why I'd want to generate so much extra work. The floors have collapsed as much as they're going to, we just need to...

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

Lord knows! :shock: I reckon jasper's your best bet. It's another one of them "whatever I do will be wrong" situations but, without resolving it one way or t'other, you'll be driving a car that could go pop! at any moment. I reckon I'd try rocking the bolt back and forth, try and work it out bit by ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

There's more to come :shock: It does look interesting how it is, but it's a mess, even if it was re-pointed there's so much mortar spilled everywhere it'd never look right. I'm not too worried about that side but the front, where it's most visible, is covered in splodges of concrete and various othe...

If there is nothing to report I'm going straight out to eat something unhealthy. Maybe a burger, or perhaps a huge tub of icecream... Anyway, I seem to have been amassing pictures, so...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've only had the two (so far...), the first was just watching telly. I tried breathing into a paper bag for a bit (does that ever help anything??) and then went for a walk up and down the road. After a while I calmed down but I still felt a bit jittery the next day driving, like something bad was g...

Cheers guys! Not much in the way of pain now but perhaps still a little bit down on energy but, you know, I've been a bit poorly... I wasn't sure if I was giving too much information there but fuggit, it might help someone who's going for the same thing, or at least provide a bit of a laugh. I've ha...

I've bin back to the hostable today from some tests, more blood tests (do I have any left?), bone marrow biopsy and chest and sinus x.rays. I had a crap night's sleep worrying about the tests. Eventually I heard t'wife getting up and I thought it was finally morning. Wrong, 4:30am. T'wife came with ...

Re: Pointy Indicators on modern cars

Mercury Cougars had them in the '60's-'70's (probably others too), although they were run by a roundy-roundy motor and a set of relays, they did look pretty cool on them to me, but seeing them on modern nazi-mobiles has put me right off of the idea. I think you'll find parking a car with hazards on ...

Pssst... wanna buy some oak? It's a bit manky so I'll probably end up burning it... :supafrisk: Dammit, I was just at that timber yard to pay for the wood (delivery Wednesday, weather willing) and I forgot to take a decent camera (stupid).

oh yes indeed, you can tell that by the way I wasn't allowed to walk across the shop floor to get to the office inches from massive machines in operation, and the guy on the rhs of the second picture, weighed down by all his PPE...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

My dad had a Merc that mainly got used for carting the dog about, somebody actually stole parts off of it while it was parked up, he'd left a window open 'cos the dog was in it. Yep, Dib was a particularly useless guard dog... Anyway, feeling much better now (hooray!) but I still have to face a host...
