  1. In my experience I've found that the 'lite' fishermen are usually fishing for food and taking fish out of the canal (yuck!). It's all down to attitude. I've been out with some very confrontational people and it's as if they are just waiting to have a go at someone and yet they wouldn't be able to fight their way out of a wet paper bag!?!? Never again. Time for a
  2. I only have the fire on when 'er indoors gets cold. I'm usually in a T-shirt and boxers. OK keeping warm when it's cold but completely stuffed keeping cool when it's hot. I should have been born in Alaska or Iceland
  3. My pump out token is 25 units and the pump takes 20. Lasts for between 6 to 9 minutes.
  4. Interesting reading this is. All I can say is on my list of things to do in this situation, calling the police would be on the back at the bottom, scribbled in pencil as an after thought ..... Time for another

  8. My wife will not take to the tiller. I have repeatedly asked her if she would like to learn but the reply is always she doesn't want the responsibility of navigating our HOME through the canal system or locks. Prefers to leave that to me and is happy operating the locks. Yeh, sometimes we struggle but usually manage and it's her choice. She's happy and I don't argue. We live a happy life. Have a greenie Spud

  10. You would only be able to drag my corpse back into a house My only regret is not doing it in my youth The people you meet down here are (mostly) priceless ROCK ON PEOPLE !
  11. Go for it Dean. The sin is using a font like this in my posts and dragging a signature like that around
  12. Think I may have a go with some of that.
  13. Thanx for all the interesting replies. I just found my electric fly swatter. Good for house flys but not sure if it will be any good for midge size flys. I like the lazer idea so I need to go and get some more leisure battries ..... Cheers all
  14. Not yet but I'm working on it
  15. Got a board here with lots of features for what? Nothing! Don't use the features of this board just go default all the way. Conform to your personal wishes. You tell me what you want me to do and I'll just roll over and do it?! I wish my life was so boring that all I could do was grumble about someones use of non default font on a message board Can you smell that?
