  6. Stealth Camera

    the Bushnell looks good but has anyone had experience of systems that send you a text or email alert if the camera is triggered. were they hardwired, wifi or mobile phone based? there have been a couple of thefts locally so its time to take some precautions. i like the camera idea. i also plan to put up a sign: "THIS YARD IS GOVERNED BY SHARIA LAW" hopefully that will have the desired effect:001_smile:

  12. Biting flys

    I thought they were called clegs. A few years back me and the mrs were driven out of a wood near orbost house on skye by a cloud of the buggers. I believe their bite contains an anesthetic so most times you dont feel it, you just see the blood dripping after the fly hops off. There is no doubt they are persistent buggers as just shaking an arm or leg will not dislodge them, you have to take a swipe. They prefer shade so moving into bright sunlight will normally bring relief http://www.kinnoirwoodfuel.co.uk

  14. Oak table

    Beautiful work. Just hope you can get it thru the door, back into the house and in position:) I once spent an hour assembling a pine bed out in the garden only to realise I couldn't fit it up the stairs. Doh! http://www.kinnoirwoodfuel.co.uk
  15. New Towing Regs - Jan 2013

    The rules are are a nonsense aren't they. So now you have to fork out the best part of £1500 to get a tacho installed. You were obviously intending to joyride up to durness and back non stop:). It really bugs me that we are all paying for an army of officials whose sole aim is to persecute businesses with this red tape crap. I took the decision to sell my trailer as I cannot be doing with this pettifogging bureaucracy. It doesnt make the roads safer, it costs businesses in time and money and is a civil service job creation racket pure and simple. Rant over. The revolution may be televised but it wont be towed. http://www.kinnoirwoodfuel.co.uk
