    I still call Australia home

    Sure I could comment on it. But it might not be a comment you'd welcome. I'm not a Green voter or a fan of Lydia Thorpe. I voted Green exactly once because the local candidate Jason Ball is a good egg. I joined the Party and attended exactly one meeting before leaving in disgust with way the...

    Those who do know shit about tools

    Ah. wet concrete. amazing what one learns here . The mental image of some burly builders in singlets and droopy drawers, walking up and down a dry slab with that thing in hand was kind of weird. :D

    Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

    We are all old. Maybe we should ask all of our kids Russian kids, French Kids, Chinese kids if we should respond in kind to Putin's Nuke threats. It won't be our world to live in regardless of whether it glows or swims in vodka.

    To the OP. I was looking to hire a pressure washer. On the hire site "specials" WTF is a concrete vibrator? Looks like a baseball bat with a motor on the handle. :unsure: Something everyone's S&M dungeon needs?

    Happey October

    1st of March in the UK was "White Rabbits" Just a thing you had to say to the first person you met in the morning at school. I have no idea why.

    Happey October

    All the older homes pre 1960's? had solid timber floors, on which the original owners put underlay and carpet or lino. Shag pile became popular in the 70's and eighties, but the doors were all too low to fit the height of the new carpet. Sooo..people took the doors off and cut an inch off the...

    Happey October

    The gap under my doors is more like 2 inches. That passion for bare Baltic pine floorboards and tearing up shagpile where our parents cut the doors short, to fit the shagpile. And no one lights fires in their 3 or more fireplaces anymore in the city. I wemeber open fires and burning leaves in...

    Happey October

    sure, it sometimes drops to minus 1 C. :D trouble is, we don't prepare for cold weather either mentally or in our homes. So an unusually long, cold, wet & windy winter makes us grumpy and sad.

    Why Did It Take A Catastrophe?

    The hurricane united people because people are basically good. We are also herd animals with a genetic predisposition to help the herd. Why can't it stay this way? because once the herd is secured, our individual survival instincts kick in. If one was a dog, one would fight and hunt for the pack...

    Triggering tight arsed Australians

    Excellent, your money is probably helping kids orphaned by Aids and Covid. I donate to UNICEF and do volunteer work for Save The Children. Both these charities just help kids no matter why they are orphaned. It's all good. I'm sorry if my thread offended. In no way was it meant to be accusatory.

    I just don't want to live to my 80's to find that woolies are soothing our shopping angst with Taylor Swift and Lady GAG
