    what grinds your gears

    Our accountant keeps an asset list. When something is purchased it's added for that year and I have to check the list each year at our meeting to cross off anything that's been sold, scrapped or rotted away.

    Similar to a theory that a friend of mine has. "Don't start shooting sheep, you won't know when to stop !"

    what grinds your gears

    That's great if you've good tenants. But if you get a bad one you'll realise that at least the law isn't on the side of the weather, currency, flea beetle, slugs, breakdowns etc. etc.

    what grinds your gears

    My parents struggled for years trying to keep this place from being damp, they had various "experts" give opinions. We had a builder do some work who pointed out that the ground outside the house needs to be at least 6" below the floors inside. We dug the ground ( well, soil, broken flower pots...

    Best fluid / way to stop padlocks freezing?

    I have a lock that needs regular oil to defeat super glue. Makes me laugh that they haven't worked out that I have a plan. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

    Best fluid / way to stop padlocks freezing?

    I've just washed out a disc type lock. I couldn't believe the amount of sludge that came out, no wonder it froze up so easily.

    RSPCA seek to end "factory farming"

    Like most charities they began for all of the right reasons. Cruelty to animals must not be tolerated, but it is subjective. What one person believes is cruel does not not cross that line for another. But like most charities it has become a self serving job creation scheme.

    RSPCA seek to end "factory farming"

    All charities are struggling at the moment. I think that they have decided to say something really radical because they are desperate for funds and attention. They have a massive pension and wages commitment.

    If anyone is in doubt about the NHS

    Like a pension that those of us who are self employed would give our right arm for ? My wife is a nurse, so I do know what it's like. But every job has its difficult times.

    SolarEdge Inverter not feeding data

    We had that problem when we changed from a BT Hub5 to Hub6 router. They ended up putting a wifi extender on the ethernet cable so that it could wifi its data (about a foot) when it wouldn't put it into the ethernet cable. Seemed completely ridiculous, but that was the only way that they could...

    When you add something that you don't need yet to an order to bulk it up to get free delivery on the the item that you need PDQ. The order turns up short of the reason that you placed the order in the first place :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

    what grinds your gears

    Father replaced the windows in the house in the 80s. Had a phone call in the 90s from Anglia windows, did I want to renew the warranty on the windows ? "No need" I said, as they have a lifetime guarantee. "Their expected life is ten years" I was told, so for a fee I could renew the warranty...

    This is a weird one ...

    These companies seem to want ever more control over you. I avoid those that insist on a payment by direct debit on a variable amount, where possible. Providing them with your bank statements is step too far.

    This is a weird one ...

    Encouraging people to borrow, just to get a good credit rating, so that they can borrow again has to be the most insidious aspect of capitalism. How gullible can people get ?

    This is a weird one ...

    But 3 months bank statements for most arable farms between June and November wouldn't give most firms much confidence in you. Lots of costs, but little income.
