Gad, but it's hot, Fanshawe! :sweat:

I know there are some sun lovers out there but these temperatures are becoming somewhat tiresome now. I'm afraid this heat kills off my appetite and also any chance of sleep. As a rule, in this country, we don't have things like air conditioning so have to pay a fortune to power companies to run fans. Have a shower? 10 minutes later when you've dried yourself off you'll need another one ::)
Constantly running air con in the car thus using extra fuel and paying the fuel companies more for it. Watering the patio pots with a watering can because our water company, United Utilities, have asked us not to use hose pipes as, if we don't, they will impose a hosepipe ban. Brainless  :censored: deliberately setting fire to moorlands and woodlands thus putting emergency service personnel and wildlife at risk. Our poor dear pets sweltering in their fur coats while some of their brainless owners shut them in cars.
And yes, as sure as it starts to rain for more than a day, there'll be complaints about that as well.
One thing you can be assured of. Having bought myself a new motorbike which I collect in a couple of weeks time and intend to ride only in the dry, then it it will rain for days on end.

Enjoy your bike Mick.
And, itís good to see the sun again down here. Weíve had 4 wet days since Sunday (sometimes very wet). Shame we canít send some up to you.
Anyway, itís sun all the way again in the forecast for us but at least our pets (tortoises) love it.
 :)
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Do scamers have a season?

5 answered calls over the last 2 weeks from a recorded voice "Nichole" of the NBN telling me they have urgently trying to contact me and will be turning off my internet in 24 hours if I don't arrange a connection with their technician.  "press 1 to talk to the technician".
At least 8 answered calls in last 3 weeks from someone from Telstra claiming my cable modem is generating errors and causing problems on the internet.  They will help me check it and fix it.  Most calls are slightly different but still the same core approach.
2 approaches from hawkers at the door claiming to save me money; by basically scaming for power retailers.  I have had 4 of these within the last year.  How many times do they think the same people would fall for their lies, ommissions and misrepresentations?  Last one I played along until I received a contract by e-mail which I then rejected.  Most interesting to study the techniques used.
Also not answered a goodly amount of calls which were obviously from scammers.
Just waiting for the yearly flood of calls and e-mails from the "tax office" about refunds or amounts I need to send in the form of i-tune or gift cards to avoid a gaol sentence.

Anyone for reintroduction of the stocks for these annoying sods?
To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

Stocks are just not enough for these people. :no: Those they successfully scam do not necessarily have the mental tools to recognise and deal with them properly - like ignoring them or telling them to take a hike - and the results for these unfortunates can range from irritating, costly, or can even be life changing and disastrous.

I'm a peace loving man, but I'm having great difficulty getting the image of a Firing Squad out of my mind. :veryangry2:

Likewise. Caller display is well worth having. I don't answer calls from mobiles to my landline either as, for whatever reason, my brain cell can't equate mobile numbers to people like it can with landline numbers. My mobile doesn't work at home as there is no reception from any of the suppliers so it's not switched on until I go out. If the caller display shows 'International' I just ignore it. If it's a member of the Royal Family in trouble I'm sure they'll leave a message :laugh:
