    Relaxing gardening?

    I find this is the most relaxing form of gardening.

    The supplier says the mximum weight loading is 386lb per tier! I doubt if there'll ever be moe than 100lb on the lot. On the subject of eBay, I've just ordered 6 cartridges for my new Canon TS 8351 printer. They are coming from Germany, £36 instead of £56 from Canon UK. Still expensive I was...

    I ordered this steel racking for the garage from eBay on Thursday. It was only £26. This shows alternative configurations. It arrived this morning. Really easy to assemble they even give you a pair of cotton gloves in case you've delicate hands. It's not as strong as Dexion, but it's...

    The Joys of "Mates Rates."

    I've just had my cable TV/telephone/internet bill for this month. The discounts my golfing pal, got me, reduced it from £102 last month to £74 this month, so I'm well pleased.

    What did you do in your garden today?

    Too wet for golf or gardening. I'm "reorganising" the garage. I've ordered this shelving from e-Bay, £26 plus free postage. (new) 180 X 90 X 40cms It shows some of the different configurations you can have. They've sold over 1100 of them. How can they do it for the price? Lots of suppliers...

    Programmes To Watch

    I find Chris Packham a bit weird. maybe it's his Aspergers. He's always on about it. In one documentary, (2018) he went looking for a little six year old native girl he'd seen in a documentary he made twenty years before, about a tribe living in the jungle Sumatra in Indonesia. She was of...

    What did you do in your garden today?

    I came home from golf this afternoon to find the half-full "green bin" had not been emptied by the refuse collectors. This is the first time any bin has not been emptied. There was a pre-printed note attached to the handle explaining that the bin had not been emptied as it "contained either...

    What did you do in your garden today?

    Came back today and did a few checks on my new consumer unit in the garage. Always worth returning and doing this when you aren't under any pressure. All's working as it should.

    Fave songs from way back when!!

    A couple of favourites from the days of the big band singers. The latter was used as the close out recording in an episode of "Cold Case" a long running drama series of about 100 episodes. It was the first time I'd heard it. Each case investigated could be from anything from the late...

    What did you do in your garden today?

    Decided to tackle the moss on the garage roof. The birds have been helping out by removing it a bit at a time and dumping it on the path. But it would take them forever. They would have been more help if they'd also brushed it up instead of leaving it for me to do every other day. When I say...

    What did you do in your garden today?

    Finished the electrics in the garage. there are now four supplies, water heater, power, garage and small room lights and garden lights. This was probably the last major job I will do. It'll be just regular maintenance from now on, mostly looking after the wooden constructions, as they are under...

    What did you do in your garden today?

    Mounted the unit, the power's back on and the water heater. I've changed most of the cables as some were over thirty years old. Just got to connect up the supply to the light in the garage and the one in room next door. Then I'll tackle the garden lighting, a bit of work to do there yet. Then...

    What did you do in your garden today?

    Didn't do anything in the garden, but did a bit in the garage. I'm going to put a new consumer unit in it. It's for the garage and what was the room in which I had my koi pool filters, so a lot of electrical stuff, 2 pumps, UV, air pump, quarantine tank pump, air pumps, heaters. This one...

    What really irritates me is the ridiculous interest rate charged on credit cards and other forms of borrowing. It hits those who are hard up most. I made it a point never to pay interest again after clearing my mortgage. I pay insurances, golf club membership annually and clear my credit card...
