Code 80 or 55? If it's 80 then yes it is a bit of a PITA, 55 keeps its shape when you bend it so is easier  :thumbsup:

Very angry tonight, a dear old friend of ours wanted to give a Piano away for free if the person wanting it paid for a Piano Removalist to pick it up.

My Daughter in Law said she would take it and organized a removalist to pick it up, three weeks later we bumped into our old friend who promptly asked if our family member had received the piano, we said yes and found out the lousy bugger hadn't even phoned the old lady to say thank you.

Sorry but I think it is common courtesy to say thank you and please but it seems to be little used in this selfish self centered world and I am peed off.
Keep on Smiling
Dave.

Very true, it costs absolutely nothing to use "please and thank you" and when used they speak volumes  :beers:

"Manners maketh the man and they cost you nothing!" .... I can still hear my late father's mantra even now. If I'm honest, the lack of manners these days is one thing that gets my goat up as well!

Not exactly enough to make me angry, and certainly not unexpected, but it was still a downer; was the fact that both the new council tax and water rates bills arrived in the post yeasterday. And both have gone up.  :(

 >:(  the door bell that rang in the middle of the night in our sleepy village last night.
Bit shocked to find a burly policeman on the door step as the culprit.
Situation defused when he apologies to ringing at that hour but it seems that next door had had a 'serious incident' earlier and he needed information from us ASAP.
BUT
it took me 3 hours to get back to sleep  ::)  :thumbsdown:

In fairness we didn`t ..........and still don`t....... know what sort of incident, by who, or against who it involved. I'm pretty certain the police were around all night

Yesterday the rear suspension went on the car.  :( It didn't collapse but dips badly in one corner and its not the shocks.
MOT is due in a month so with all the little things that need doing plus that, I'm gonna have to sell it as spares or to a breakers.  :'(
Its just not worth paying out for anymore. Not that I have any money anyway!  :smiley-laughing:

And today, when I had people to phone,  my mobile phone network has been down all day! Aaagghhhh!  >:(
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!
