  1. Well at least the water is cheaper than petrol these days.
  2. I’m not a racist but her neck looks suspiciously white.
  3. I think Gareth has the answer. We had a brand of oil here in Rep of Ireland called TOP (Tedcastles Oil Products). They used Russian diesel which was highly regarded. My Toyota Avensis used to do 60 mpg on the white stuff. I reckon there's a different source for the red and white diesel.
  4. Not quite a tree within a tree, but it's close.
  5. I found that I have been happier since I changed from coffee in the morning to orange juice. My doctor explained that it's the vitamin C and natural sugars in the orange juice, but I'm convinced it's the vodka.
  6. I remember my parents converting an AGA cooker to burn oil back in the early 1970’s. I think it used to burn anthracite before that. We now have an oil fired Aga and I am curious has anyone got an Aga burning wood? Is it possible to convert a modern Aga to burn wood?
  7. It is a work of art by a local black smith posing as a tree guard.
  8. She’d be handy round the yard if ww3 breaks out! Wifey might not be impressed though 😜
  9. Simple answer, none. Keep an eye on ebay sometimes they show up there a bit cheaper than retail.
  10. Ok, thanks. I'll try it again and persevere with the next one. I'm intrigued by the mechanism of how it works. I think it might be something to do with osmosis. Fluid moves towards the stronger concentration of the paste, taking the thorn with it as it moves.
  11. Benefits of a good vocabulary... I recently called an old engineering buddy of mine and asked what he was working on these days. He replied that he was working on "Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics,aluminium and steel under a constrained environment." I was impressed until,upon further inquiry,I learned that he was washing dishes with hot water under his wife's supervision.
  12. I can understand a yellow snow warning, but what is a yellow ice and wind warning all about?
  13. I've been trying to get an appointment with my doctor for weeks. I finally saw him today. I showed him the boil on my arse. He just completely ignored me, and continued pushing his trolley around Tesco.
  14. What about hiring in a mini digger with a rock breaker hammer for a day? Split them into quarters so you can man handle them easily.
