Hello Forkers - March Thread

For nearly four years after having moved here we had our meters read double! Twice a year under our name and twice a year for the previous owner. Each time we explained what was happening and each time the man said he'd tell 'them' and get it changed ... it only stopped when we changed to an online tariff

I've known them put up with damp and shady Nut, but I've found that they're happier and perform better with sunshine

You're right Fairy - I'm IT literate and used to do all sorts of stuff online  and deal with all sorts of people for work - but it's such a faff and as you say, you just can't trust them to get it right ... and whereas at work I had the contacts to get heads to roll if need be, with this sort of stuff 99% of the time you end up just banging your own head up against a brick wall.


We're tied in for another 11 months with the same supplier with a reasonable saving ... I'll think about it again in 10 months time ... it's Saturday

Ladybird   I have it on good authority (and Wiki agrees with him LOL) that Bog Snorkelling is not a Fen activity .......  fortunately 


"The activity of bog snorkelling was started in 1976 near Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales..... It began as a result of an over-the-bar conversation in The Neuadd Arms between Gordon Green and a few regulars...."

It's going to be wet here tomorrow Hosta. 


As you know OH and I love Devon and Cornwall, but if we never go to Delabole again it'll be too soon.  We had one of the strangest experiences and the worst meal of our lives there  .... be afraid .... be very afraid ...............

Oh dear Lantana  ... you've not trained him well ........ I was lucky ....... mine came from the Fens and had a 'Gap Year' working at a nursery before doing his degree ....... he's not desperately keen but knows what to do when the occasion arises
