one of these old heaps will be so incontinent that insisting on long-life coolant is a bit pointless ;D


If it's got red in it, then use that. Mine came with blue, and that's what I use in it.
I use red, just so I only have to change it every 3 years on so, rather than annually.  Cost is about the same, and the effort is the same, and I'm a lazy bastid :D

Thanks chaps, I do realise that a) this is only the start of the process and b) that most people turn into pathological liars when it comes to selling houses. 

I suppose it all depends if the original asking price is a true representation of what the house is worth. Estate agents often 'ensnare' sellers by suggesting they initially put the house on the market at an over-inflated price........only to reduce the price when nobody bites.  If it sells for 5% below the real value of the property this could be considered a reasonable offer.

When we went to market with this place, we had a view of what we thought it was worth, trying to be realistic we thought. We then had 5 agents round and got 5 different prices with a spread of nearly 90k  :o. It transpires they're only good at valuation if one like it close by was sold recently, then they mark up or down based on condition. Hardly rocket surgery  ::).

In the end we put it on for what we thought it was worth (which was 20k below the top valuation). We then agreed with the agent that we would consider reducing after 2-3 weeks if we got no bites. As it was we got 4 viewings in 3 weeks and we have an offer on which is more than 2 of the 5 agents suggested it went on for.

Its all a game, in the end  ;D.

I believe estate agents use the same 'random number  generator' car dealers deploy when arriving at a price for a service.

If you don't accept the right for people to differ with you and the right to protest on an agenda you disagree......
Whilst that's not what I said, it raises an interesting point.

In all walks of life and work, we get some liberties.  Then a minority, particularly in my work life take too many, and become a PITA/ineffective/corrosive/whatever, and that has to be struck out.

I think the same needs to happen for democracy.  If a significant minority can't deal with it/abuse it/whatever, it needs to be withdrawn.



One comment I heard on the wireless was some tree hugging diesel dyke spewing off about the fact she was protesting about the Trump visit because of the cost of Policing...   .and she couldn't see the irony, clearly. Shame the radio is a one way medium, so she couldn't hear me shouting at her to get back to rug munching

We had a pair of pigeons nest in our apple tree and produce two offspring last year. This year they have tried very hard to do the same.
I knocked the nest out several times before having the bright ides of jamming a couple of footballs in the spot in the tree where they nest.
This seemed to deter them for a few weeks, but yesterday I noticed they had not only built another nest, but she was sat on it.
Put the garden hose on her until she reluctantly flew off. Then knocked the nest down with a stick again.
Noticed a pair of broken eggs laid under the tree later in the day, which explains the reluctance to fly off the nest.
Still, two less flying vermin to shit all over my car in the future.  ::)

If you park any Omega for more than a week without disconnecting the battery*, expect to have to jump it.

But, do this more than four or five times, and you can expect to be buying a new battery.

* The caveat is to be sure that the key works in the driver's door lock and do not double lock it with the remote...
Most Standard Elites can easily withstand 3-4 weeks if all is in good working order, and the power sounder is in the bin. Lesser models should be a little bit better.

Plus I was already at Costco and they were doing PS4s for 103 corner, with 20 vouchers back for each 2 fitted.
Not in 275/35/20 they ain't :(

In fact the quotes I got from Costco weren't competitive, which I was slightly surprised at.

Failed to actually sell it... That's to say the oppsing ladybitsing Onanist who won it has, unsurprisingly, failed to turn up for it/say they have changed their minds >:(
Well, did you really expect any different?

At least its only a small one, unlike what happens in these parts.

And obviously the idiotheads round here encourage and feed the vermin, so its a near daily occurance.

......
What are they charging these days?

 .....

Too much .... 60  ??? but it gets the interior cooler a lot faster  :)


you do know that's much less than the cost of the refrigerant has increased?

Yes,R134 has just about doubled in price :-\

Is that cos it's hot & everyone is topping up their air con? Supply & demand ....

Not sure why but it was before this hot spell
I heard that some factories were offline for maintenance, and another one(s) suffered a problem causing a long shutdown, so only 1 or 2 factories left producing in Europe currently.
