Screen covered with ice and the auto wipers sensor decided the ice was water.  Tried to switch on the wipers wipers were frozen in place. shredded.

When ice is forecast I prop the wiper arms up a touch with wine corks. And old trick that has saved me a fair bit of grief.

The car has been reluctant to start recently, I think the fuel system depressurises after a few days. My usual garage doesn't do jobs like that, so I hope Skoda has a spare slot to have a look.

I hardly bother with FB lately. Am getting peed off with snowflake people who are offended at everything.   People who don't post anything ever but then cause hell because someone expresses a different opinion than themselves. I once said the reason I no longer use the town centre is because I felt uncomfortable due to groups of people who beg and I couldn't hear one word of English.  Apparently that makes me racist. I very rarely express an opinion anymore. Friends have been banned for giving an opinion that has upset keyboard warriors too.

Well, she was right again. He's just had a seizure.  I expected the epilepsy nurse to shoo away the idea of the dog predicting these seizures but she didn't.  She said to watch the dog. It will seldom get it wrong.
I once saw a programme where they were investigating dogs smelling cancer. Wow. That is fantastic.

Virgin have offered me a free upgrade from Tivo (3 tuners) to their new V6 box (6 tuners).

It needs a connection to the modem though, so I'll have to punch a hole through the floor of the bedroom for a cable, as many say they wifi connection rarely works.

I should be able to back up all my settings, favourites and series links, but the page that should allow that is always blank! And their help pages are hopeless! I don't want to manually enter 84 links!

I finally managed to get my free VirginMedia V6 recorder box ordered despite their system thinking I was still using an old email that even their system cannot find. ???

And after the order went through, I noticed I get a free Powerline Kit as the modem and TV box are in different rooms and need wifi or wired connections between themselves. And I get to keep the 1Tb Tivo that will replace the VboxHD in the bedroom.

All for no extra money!  :D

Doing the second walk at ten then attempt to keep warm in this freezing house. Two extractor fans are blowing a gale through. Because the kitchen is now none ventilated because of extention,  we have to have a supply of air in it. It's up next to the ceiling and will extract well but it's drawing my warm air out even when not switched on . The thing is still spinning by itself anyhow. I suppose it's better than damp or mould.

Unpack shopping. Driver told me that loads of cancellations yesterday due to the roads and weather. Those that did get an order were stocking up on bread and milk.
I sincerely hope that their bread goes mouldy and their milk turns sour  ::)

Adjusted the downstairs loo ballcock valve, the screw for the ball was not even finger tight so it had drifted up to max level which was making the overflow run. And some water was getting through the valve locking nut that wasn't even finger tight either.

Prevent the house burning down.

Pol decided to deep fry frozen pancake rolls in half a litre of smoking hot oil in a saucepan.

As expected, the oil erupted when she dropped the first roll in.

If I hadn't appeared and turned the hob off there would have been a big fire.

I bawled her out, so hopefully she won't do it again.  >:(

I was supposed to be near Weston-super-Mare today to celebrate the RAF's 100th birthday at the home of our trade group (Radio Telecomms). But getting accommodation was impossible as it's also a Bank Holiday. And my plan to take the train there and back in one day got ruined when Bristol Temple Meads station was closed for repairs.  :-\

Screens aren't allowed by the council unless they fit them, and they won't.

I've seen him before so I leaded dog up to come home and saw the most stupid thing ever....a bloke came on the fields holding a baby in one arm and two massive Alsatians on a dual lead. He was a big bloke but still,  what would he have done if there was a loose dog around? He couldn't put the baby down?

Council chippy came and stuck the shed windowsill back on. But as for the door.... all wooden exterior doors are now to be replaced with uPVC on failure. And they take a month to produce, so all he could today was measure up. Door to be fitted 27th June, but not by a chippy, but by a "glazing technician" from a contractor.

43 days to wait in addition to the weeks we have already waited. So in the meantime I'll refit the door myself so that it can be locked.

Repaired the rear wiper arm. It had seized so didn't press onto the screen. Shaft replaced with a nut and bolt and greased with copper grease. Somewhat cheaper than the £38 the Skoda wanted for a replacement. Just have to fix the auto-park now, I think one of the internal tracks has got greasy.

Plus I repainted over the weld patch that was fitted last year. They coated it in poor underseal that wore off quickly.

Got the car to the garage at 8, despite nearly the whole route (1.5 miles out of 2 miles) being made into a 20mph since yesterday morning.

:grumpy:

A DWP bloke printed the Proof of Benefit letters for the twins. He told me that they do Secret Shopper calls to the DWP helplines, and the AVERAGE wait time has risen from 15 minutes to 45 minutes in the last month alone.

Did some shopping, and was about to hop on a bus home when my mobile rang to tell me of the MOT fail.  :-\

All should be done by 4pm, just when the traffic goes bonkers for a couple of hours.  :-\

Cut down the dead Kiwi and chopped it up for the green bin (R.I.P. 15 year old, you fed us well)
Restrung the wires for another Kiwi one day (they were £2 each in ASDA the other day, but I though nah....)
Cleaned some gravel and used it to top the 2 Catmints that are already on the wall
Watered the chillies

A black Audio TT overtook me at around 80mph on a 50mph stretch of dual carriageway road.

It then swerved back and forth, hit the central reservation barrier, swerved across in front of me, swerved right again and went nose first into the central barrier.

The driver got out before I reached the wreck, and he started swearing at the sky. ???

A car was racing up behind me, so I kept going. And that car shot past me at about 80mph and accelerating just as we entered a 70mph zone.

I've just put the washing out seeing as it's really nice out there.  Going to put a casserole on slow cook then get Chris out and have a coffee outside.

All this one gets to is about 20m, and on the back of the label it says this. I told her to send it back (post free). The same company that sold here a strimmer without a charger or battery.

I just found out that our local water pressure is set to 1 bar. And that's only 14.5psi !!!  :o

"This is not your bus! It is for elderly people like myself who have mobility problems! You have to walk!!"

I told her that the bus route was "Gabalfa 1" not "Geriatric 1".

It took half an hour but they realised NOTHING had been bought via their site for 6 days because of this glitch.

I got to bed late after an interesting meet-up with chilli-mates, only to be woken at 8am by the ESA people phoning asking us to arrive at 9am not 9:40am tomorrow. It's actually one of their known tactics to see if the claimant can make last minute changes to plans. Polo took the call and accepted the change, but she should not have been contacted directly as I am her appointee. So now we have to get their during rush-hour traffic via a well-known snarl-up area.

Sneaky buggers....   :grumpy:

I'm glad I took the car as there were so many bargains for things we use and were low on stock of.

Half price Tefal frying pans from Wilko, massively reduced salad and fruit in Sainsburys, 30% off nukeable burgers in Aldi, etc. etc.


And treats for the fish in the pool, 75% off.

And a see-though window thermometer from ALDI that once set in place said it was 37.5c.... had to move it into permanent shadow to get 26c....

Title: Re: What are you going to do today?
Post by: Tāf on August 07, 2018, 13:41:21 PM
The ESA assessor was an Italian "physiotherapist" with the thickest accent I have ever heard. He arrived 35 minutes late, didn't apologise, and said he wanted the whole thing finished in 15 minutes as he had to catch up!

His questions started off OK, but then started to expose traps he hoped the lad would fall into.

It didn't bode well for an accurate report...  :-\

The manager was sorry for the wrong brand being sold to me, but gobsmacked that I was handing back almost £20 of cigs that I had "got for free".

So he put 5000 points (£25) on my Nectar card.  :)

That's how ours has been for a couple of years. Alternating black and green garden bin too. They have the vehicles to do side-loading of "sorted recycling" but it would be political suicide to make us sort paper, plastic, metal and glass at the moment.

Food recycling is fortnightly here. Most green bins round here stink. Black and recycling are alternative weeks. Now they have put big stickers on the black saying NO FOOD IN HERE. Actually I don't blame people if you have a chicken carcass and you have to have it sit in that bin for two weeks?
Course they can then refuse to empty your bin?

Got the missus to her diabetic clinic appointment 15 minutes early.  Just a quick course on how to use the diabetic monitor that Pol has already.

2 1/2 hours later I left the car in the car park and went to see where she was.

She was just about to walk out in a furious rage.  :o

45 minutes before the doctor arrived.

Then 30 minutes to be seen.

5 minutes later the doctor called the consultant.

40 minutes later the consultant phoned back to say "NO" to the monitor.

30 minutes before the doctor told her it was "Policy not to prescribe them to anyone who had been insulin dependent for more than 10 years".

Then I arrived to see her glaring at the doctor, so got her out of there.

4 months she has waited, on GP referral to get a monitor.

They can't access their site that they sell from, so want me to email them proof of purchase from their site and paypal.

There is a POSSIBILTY of replacement or refund as some drives have been found to have faulty data ports. As in "cracked".

The new neighbour across the street got into his car on his hardstanding, and was just about to pull off when a white van pulled right across the driveway. The neighbour put on his headlights and flashed them. No response, So he beeped the horn. No response.

So I walked over and tapped on his window.

"Do you mind pulling forward so that that car can get out, please?"

"F OFF! I'M ON THE Fing PHONE YOU Fing W@NKER!!"

"It's only a few feet, loads of space, it'll only take you 5 seconds".

"I TOLD YOU TO F OFF! I'M ON THE Fing PHONE YOU FING W@NKER!!"

Then another neighbour walked over and asked what was happening.

Down came the passenger window.

"I ALREADY TOLD HIM TO F OFF! I'M ON THE Fing PHONE YOU FING W@NKERS!!"

The other neighbour walked off into his garden and came back with a length of scaffolding pole.

The white van shot off with the horn sounding continuously....

Cars have started parking up outside our house to make phone calls. They obviously think it's ok to block a disabled access area and get quite miffed if asked to move. I just let the dog out and they can't hear their call for her barking.
Some are fine, they ask if it's ok to park whilst they take the call and I have no problems with it. The arrogant ones can sod off. My dog is definitely noisier than their phone.

Pol is calling her PC manufacturer to tell them that a power lead is faulty. It's still under warranty, so I hope they send out a replacement. If not I have found one on ebay for a couple of quid.

I have several other jobs on my list, but can't raise the enthusiasm.

Pol is calling her PC manufacturer to tell them that a power lead is faulty.

I figured out that the 2 power leads with SATA connectors are current limited. So only 2 of the 4 connections can be used.

So I now have the 2 original drives on one lead, and the new 6tb and DVD on the other. Unfortunately that means the 6Tb is sat on a DVD tray until I can get a SATA power lead extender so that it can be moved into the HD tray area.

Pol told the company tech and he said it should not happen, but he tried it on one they have on the bench and he found the same thing. Added to their knowledge database and the PSU manufacturer is going to be told about it too.

Chatted online with Sainsbury's head office. The multipacks of the cigs I smoke are marked "not available" on their website.

They called the manufacturer and were told they were no longer produced for the UK market, but will still be produced for the EU countries. The reason... the EU advised them to stop selling them in the UK. ???
Title: Re: Re: What are you going to do today?
Post by: El on October 11, 2018, 16:53:21 PM
All gone back to £8 a pack and just short of £40 for 100. Big report in our town about raids on shops selling illegal cigs. Funny how they have resources for that innit? It says the selling of these cigs is denying funding resources to the councils and unfair competition to standard shops. To be fair, I would not buy them for Chris as they may be dodgy . But that is the only reason.
They'll put the price up again and again.

I'm putting out 12 fatballs every 3 days now. The local sparrows have multiplied to 11. But it's 2 gangs of 11 that come to feed, so it's a bit of a war most days.

Home Bargains do tubs of 50 fatballs for £4, but now they have boxes of 150 for under £8, so quite a saving.

got the tyre pressure monitor sorted on the chariot.  all tyres within 3psi of nominal.  Wait and see time if it comes on again.  No spare fitted, just a tin of gloop that if used means new tyre time anyway as most places will not touch a glooped tyre.

Picked almost the last of the chillies, then defrosted the freezer. The missus reckoned "half the freezer was chillies", but it turned out to be less than 1 cubit foot (out of 10).

Oven cleaning postponed as the missus and Pol used it at 1pm.

No plans so far. The lad is going to try to get his Disabled Bus Pass renewed. He doesn't meet the new criteria, but it was initially issued on his GP's request. So they might allow that to continue.

Removed a dead car headlight lamp for a neighbour. When he has bought a new one I'll show him how to fit it.

The clerk he saw gave him a replacement temporary card, but told him that their criteria is PIP-and-DLA-based only now, 12 points required (cannot walk at all, can only walk up to 20 metres, must be escorted to even places he knows well).

But, an old rule still exists: has had a driving licence rescinded or refused (except for drug or alcohol dependency).

I've been trying to call the DVLA on their expensive 0300 number but kept being put in long queues. They are the only ones who can issue a certificate saying that he cannot hold a driving licence.

Wrapped the lad's present.

The council phoned ref his Disabled Bus Pas. Issue and renewal is now out of their hands. It's DLA, PIP or nothing. A form is being sent out, if they don't get it back with the relevant proof, the Pass will be cancelled on Jan 7th.

But before she hung up, she asked if he had a driving licence. I said he could not have one due to his disabilities.

"Get you GP or DVLA to confirm that before Jan 1st, and that will get him a Pass for 5 years. After Jan 1st that criteria will no longer count".
Title: Re: Re: What are you going to do today?
Post by: El on December 03, 2018, 13:45:50 PM
We have wheelchair taxi vouchers because we can't get him on a bus. Every year we have to apply with a current statement from PIP that proves he has no mobility.  We pay £35 for £130 worth of taxi vouchers  with a current pic of him on them and they last one year. Not really grumbling except this could be much easier. He has 4 years of pip, therfore I don't know why we have to go through this every year. We have to contact pip and request a current years statement. Then send it to GMT , then wait for a form to send back with payment.  Why not have it on record as four years. With a four year direct debit that is cancelled if a change occurs.
Madness!

It's the same with DLA and PIP Proof of Benefit letters for every single dental or optical visit. Especially when your dentist has been conned into giving free treatment to eastern europeans who were no longer eligible.

I bought loads of half price round shallots yesterday. They are in the brine, so will be pickled sometime today.

A neighbour's neice is coming this afternoon for advice about a Disabled Living Allowance claim that was turned down the same day they received it. It looks like they have decided her son's condition is an illness and not a disability. The consultant doesn't agree.

Back from the GP surgery to request a Disabled Bus Pass for the lad.

Luckily, the senior GP we saw sits on many PIP Tribunal panels and is disgusted with the rules, but a judge gave him advice on how to overcome them.

So the lad now has the right not only to a Disabled Bus Pass for life, but retains the right to be escorted free too.

I'm chuffed, and so is the lad. He was so worried that he would lose his Buss Pass that he wanted to cancel his discounted cinema subscription.

50 minutes from my phone call, the faulty meter had been swapped and tested OK. The testing port had cracked, probably over-tightened by the council engineer.

I noticed an elderly neighbour had left her car door open, so went over to mention it.

She told me she was airing it after washing the passenger seat and carpet.

She had taken a friend shopping, and the friend had opened the electric window on the way there.

When she parked up, she pressed the alarm fob, and normally that locks all doors and winds up the windows. But her friend had accidentally hit a button that caused the window to lock in the part-open position.

When they got back, the friend got into the car and SQUELCH.... the seat and carpet were soaked. But it hadn't been raining.

Then the smell of urine hit them....

She contacted the car park operators, and they had sent video to the police already. 5 lads had been seen kicking several cars, and urinating into hers.   :-X :-X :-X

4 of the 5 were identified immediately, and were arrested and bailed back to their parents as they are underage.

They have been charged with criminal damage, but as for peeing in her car, they are unsure of what can be done.

Anyway, she told me that the passenger window was "broken" but I quickly found the lock button and disabled it.

I was woken by frantic hammering on our front door.

It was our Pakistani neighbour screaming that water was "coming in".

I dressed and ran up there, found water pouring through the light fitting in the downstairs loo. I tripped the power off and turned the stopcock off. But water was still getting past the valve, enough to refill the cistern very quickly.

She called British Gas, with whom they have emergency cover, but was told it was downgraded to Gas Central Heating only last autumn.

We got the side of the bath off, but no sign of the leak. I traced around the house, as the previous owner, a cowboy builder, had put in extra piping all over the place, joined by plastic connectors. No sign of a leak.

During a loft conversion, the hot water tank and cold water header had been removed, and the boiler moved to the boxroom. So even more piping all hidden below hardwood laminate flooring.

Her husband has called out an emergency plumber, but I suspect it's going to be while to sort it as the stopcock will have to be replaced first. And that will mean turning off the mains for their home and their neighbours either side.

Nothing left for me to do after a relative arrived, so I came home to prep for a shopping trip after lunch, followed by a GP appointment at 3pm.
Title: Re: What are you going to do today?
Post by: Tāf on January 28, 2019, 15:12:19 PM
Neighbours' water leak found. It was totally disconnected pipe under the bathroom floor leading to a washing machine below.

Stopcock changed, 2 holes cut in the ceiling, 1 to find the leak, 1 to get at it. The (insurance company) plumber told them the installation is illegal and must be replaced ASAP. Ditto loads of other pipes and joints he found. He cannot do the replacement work, and is not allowed to suggest anyone.

Power back on once everything had started to dry out.

Then I got home to a water emergency here. :grumpy:

The outflow pipe from the pond filter back to the pond had severed causing 80% of the water to not reach the pond. The waterbutts are both empty for the winter so I have filled several buckets with tapwater which I was about to treat to remove chlorine, But then I noticed they said 1ml of solution is required for each 7.6 litres. And they say that is 2 gallons. It is, but US GALLONS!! The water has to be replenished or the poor fish risk freezing during the cold nights forecast.

No phone call by 5pm, so decided to nip to Lidl for a few things. Car battery totally dead  :-\

On charge now, and all night probably.

The "modification" that keeps the Engine Control Unit memory up obviously also draws a lot of power from the battery. I'll test tomorrow with a meter.

I'm making bread whilst watching Masterchef Australia and also watching the robot mop sort the kitchen floor out. Best gadget ever if you have an animal.

Composed the start of the PIP Mandatory Reconsideration letter for the DWP.

Then I had a nap feeling angry and upset at how they think they can get away with this bloody system.

I think what makes me more angry is that some stranger is trying to get one over on a loved one who just can't fight back on their own. It brings out the tiger in me. It's bullying and I despise that.

Many, many people have complained, rightly, that they are effectively being accused of lying, despite supporting evidence to the contrary. In any other situation they could be sued for libel.

Day off, tomorrow too.

Usual housework which doesn't get done on workdays - washing, ironing, hoovering, change bed linen, etc.

Nip to the shops for cat food, fruit, hair dye (I'm back to red) and eggs.

Start packing for holiday, as I won't get another chance after tomorrow - I have to work until 8pm the day before we fly from Heathrow at 7.40am!

Up at 7 to run the dog and get back for chemist and medical supplies. Got back at 7.45 and had missed the medical supply man. Good job he left them in a safe place.  Went to wash my hair and furious barking. Twas the chemist man at 8.30. Took dog out again at 9.30 and came back to him telling me the phone kept ringing.
How do they know I'm not in the living too? ?
