Tdm - sorry about your diagnosis, although the outlook for you is looking good - as I said to SWMBO last year, if I am going to get cancer, that is the one I want!  :). Not sure how things will turn out though, cancer has taken half my relatives on my paternal side, including my 'baby' sister earlier this year. My PSA count is consistently around the 20 mark, (yes, I said twenty),  :goggleeyes: and yet two 'normal' biopsies show nothing, hence the need for the 'bigger' one  :help:. A high PSA count does not necessarily mean cancer, but somefink aint right! If forum members would like to do a collective 'fingers crossed', it would be appreciated. ;D. David.

We haven't got a fingers crossed icon, but if we did, I'd post it  :thumbsup:

Good luck.

There I am, reading a nice email from work telling me I'm gonna get an end-of-year bonus.

"Hmmm," thinks you, "the muppet's put this in the wrong thread ...! ::)"

"I need a new microwave" comes the cry from downstairs ... ":censored:", thinks me, "that's a chunk gone already :'("

Fast-forward a few days to this morning ... the microwave's arrived & is in place.  Suddenly, we have a power cut ... after an hour with nothing back (unusual ...) I check the house fuses ... all fine.  Call the 'leccy board & nothing's wrong in the area ... they get me to unplug a few things & retry the fuses - power !

Start plugging back & it all blows again ...":censored:" thinks me ..., ":censored: dishwasher's crapped out !!!"

So much for my bonus buying me some toys  :headbutt: :'(

Sad news but - at least you didn't have one of these nasty fires due to a faulty appliance ehhh!
You'll get it sorted in time for Xmas no doubt and I hope you have a good one...  :beers:

Well ... the second time, when I was by the damn thing, I did smell something going ... & it weren't me  ::)  Hence the decision not to :censored: around with it any more but to get a new one.

Supposed to be good ... John Lewis have promised a morning/early afternoon delivery & removal of the old one for Friday.

Yeah, I understand they leave muck all over the dishes  :P

Think yourself lucky that in a U.K. household you have 60amps to play with before things trip out.

In Tenerife it is only 40amps and everyone (except holidaymakers) know never to have the dishwasher running at the same time as the washing machine!

I think that 60A is the norm. but you can apply for 100A.
 At least that is what I was told 20 odd year ago when I rewired my place, it may have changed maybe even more now ?

I was unhappy because a storm had brought down a 90ft macrocarpa ( one of mine :( ) across the overhead wires, pulling the meter with consumer unit out through the roof, depositing them with chimney brackets etc. down in the back yard :(
I was even more unhappy after I had dug an 80yd trench by hand to put the new feed in, the Utility were happy to supply the new equipment, cables, duct etc. but not the digging !
All's well in the end, it cant get blown down again  ;D

I think we should have a 'sad' thread. 'Misty', (the dog shown in my little picture), our cross collie dog that we have had for nearly 17 years, since she was a pup, had to be put to sleep this afternoon. She had been unwell for the last few days, so just after lunch, I rang the vet'. Fortunately, there was someone there and I was told to bring her down. So I took her down to the vet', he gave her the injection and she is now buried in the garden next to our cross labrador who died a couple of years ago. We have two other dogs, plus the cats, but it is still hard. My wife is almost inconsolable.  :'( but we will get over it. Amazing how pets become part of the family. Sorry, I just wanted to tell someone.   :(

I know where you & your wife are ... having lost one of our cats a little while back ...

It's always hard, but especially this time of year, to lose a pet that is pretty much a family member  :(  But better now than at the end of next week, and better she didn't suffer too  :(

Just try & remember the fun times with her (even though this will bring things back hard for a while) and make a fuss of the others a little bit more, as they'll start missing her shortly too.  She looks, in the photo, a lovely collie ...

I feel so sorry for you ,unless you've owned a dog you just wouldn't understand they are part of the family we talk to our one year old dog we call her our little girl and we love her as much as our real children . I even shed a tear because one of our guinea pigs died this morning and I have buried her next to the hutch that her sister lives in so that she will be close by. I still miss our dog Buster who died in September last year , Things will get easier but you never forget them .

Know how tough it is to lose a special family pet.

Sad for you all but you'll have great memories I'm sure.

Good advice from Mike.

All the best.

Small beer compared to what is happening to some folks in this rain sodden country, but my mancave (conservatory) has sprung a couple of leaks so it's buckets and towels time. The rain started at about 10am yesterday and is forecast not to stop until around 5am tomorrow. :unimpressed:
I doubt I'll be able to get anyone round to fix them until the New Year so will be keeping a close eye on it.
Luckily, neither of the leaks are actually affecting the layout..........................................yet :worried:

Never mind the mild temperatures - bring on the cold, frosty but calm weather please.
