    I know what car they drive so I am a step ahead of what they expected ...just the matter of finding it. Every panel Beater within 20kms knows to keep an eye open ...heres hoping. I am patient and the longer it takes to find them, the worse the ramifications.
    I dont break things ...I just use them beyond their operational limitations

    Hi happy bin
    Hope you get well soon. Don't overdo things when you start back. The lawns will still be there.
    Cheers

    Bending a $45 gator blade after just 10 minutes cutting. Barely wore the paint off the cutting edge.

    Yeah I'll give it a go later. It's about 3/4" down at the tip. Bent at the first gator tooth.

    I shouldn't have been using them on a feral, but didn't want to be changing blades through the day.

    The fridge died suddenly after only 9 yrs - low gas and uneconomic to repair (tech said - who knows how long it takes to find leak -- could be 7-8-900 all up!).

    Why is it the old beer fridge runs/lasts forever but the exxy (newer) kitchen fridge has a short life?

    It's our lovely "throw away society" that's been made by the rich, to make them richer

    Nothing is made to last anymore.

    I have 2 bar fridges, 1@ 35 years, the other @ 45 yrs, eff'n amazing. Appliance repair guys are on the outer now, its cheaper to chuck things out and get a newbie.
    I remember the tv serviceman charging dad $300 bucks in 1975 to repair the 26" B&W PYE tv.

    Started raining yesterday arvo,so I didn't stress about doing my BAS last night. No mowing this morning, so psyched up to do the BAS and the power went out. It's still out and now it's almost dry enough to go mowing some overdue lawns.
    AND trying to type on this phone makes me grumpy too.
