Yes but why so much now about cricket, especially reporting on New Zealand arriving home after the World Cup?

One Sunday morning they started with all the Premier goals from the teams they wank over. Then went on to cricket for ages. Then went back to the 'shit' teams goals in the third part of the hourly programme. Just be normal and show all the games then go to a different sport.

If you can find out which way the tops of the fences posts slope, you can work out who owns which fence. Alternatively, which side the panels are nailed on.

Foxes - always pissing on my lawn, leaving great circles of brown dead grass. My gardener pal reckons if you scent your lawn by pissing on it, that will convince the foxes to stay clear as I would have marked my territory. I'm all for it but the missus doesn't want me waving my tadger around in full view of the neighbours.

Others say the right. Also if there are little crosses on the site plan that point into your garden it means the fence is yours. Both my neighbours have showed me site plans with the crosses pointing at me. My deeds show no crosses.

This is not necessarily always the case. A 'T' mark on the sale plan usually indicates who the responsibility for the boundary or fence etc lies with. The 'T' points into the land who has responsibilty for the boundary/fence. The deeds would normally have wording to this effect and also state whether the fence has to be built or maintained in a certain manner.

alf 31-03-2015 08:36 PM

Traditionally when erecting fencing, the arris rails supporting the wooden fence would be placed on the side of the owner responsible for the fence so that the 'good' side of the fence runs along the boundary line. This ensured that no part of the fence encroached onto the neighbours land. Often today, people when replacing fencing people ignore this rule and have the 'good' side facing into their own property.

The good side of my fence is on the inside of my fence, and that's the fence on my right, so you have truly fcked up my earlier logic-come-beliefs regarding the fence.

If I look out of my back window, the fence to the right has the panels nailed on to it from my side of the garden, so clearly the fence has been put up from my side. The fence on the left: the posts slant at the top in such a way that it suggests they were put in from the neighbour-to-the-left's side.

People who play music in their cars so loud that it makes the windows vibrate, drowns out your conversation, or the tv in your house, your phone conversation, or anything else.

I always wonder if they actually enjoy having the music at such ear splittingly loud volumes, or just do it to impress. Unfortunate if the latter, because most people seem to think they are attention seeking dicks.

Hmm telephones. I worked in recruitment for Royal Mail, and people would call up for a job from railway platforms as noisy trains thundered past.

It also annoys me when people call you up, and are having a conversation with someone else when you answer, and/or when the first thing they say (even though they've called you) is 'can you hold on a second'?

Took your advice Wolf, and tried your bottle technique. Unfortunately foxes returned and carried on pissing as before. Prob is that with a bottle, piss tends to come out too fast and only cover small area so foxes simply circumvent it.

The swinging tadger technique will surely cover a wider area, if I go for the arc effect along the borders. One of our neighbours has agreed to help, thus removing the possibility of a midnight visit by Mr Plod.

Thanks for your advice anyway.

I hear you bro but there is an alternative version where average and bland food is dressed up and charged at artisan rates. Where you basically get a burger and chips for stupid money, then they pad the bill out with soft drinks including kid sizes at 4-5 quid a pop.

Speaking of, getting a carpenter round to quote for 11 metres of shelving and being quoted 1,100 quid to source the wood and put them up. He wasn't even worth expending the energy on to tell him to fck off. This is the trouble with living in an 'arts' type area (or the h- word) - you ask for simple quotes for stuff and you get artisan rates back, with aged worn oak wood reclaimed from a museum floor etc.. whlst they try to flog their wooden 'art' at the same time.

That really pisses me off. The food doesn't cost the around they charge to produce, even including in utility charges and rates. Surely then, on top of the exorbitant profit that a restaurant is making, they've factored in the cost of the staff. If that is the case, then why am I expected to pay them twice? If they don't like what they earn, get a better job. ******* parasites.

Yes. That's a bastard. The other night I went to bed after newsnight about 12ish having missed most of the programme....at 1am just as I'm dropping off the boy appears in the bedroom with "growing pains".

Sort him out and have a piss.

At 2am just as I'm dropping off having lain awake getting more and more frustrated he reappears with the same issue. Get him some Calpol from the fridge.....

At 2.30am I get a text on the phone next to the bed from P&O saying my ferry the next day may be delayed because it's a bit windy. ( have to have the phone on for work).

Top tip, don't go back to the restaurant if you don't tip them in the states, they never forget a bad tipper.:D

What are you going to do about all the London properties being bought up by home grown or foreign wealth as investment opportunities and the spiral of unaffordability faced by the average Londoner as a result? Filth just like all your Silver Spoon In Mouth peers, including the likes of Ed Milliband who would sell every principle he knew if it would get him elected.

The privatisation and monetisation of London annoys me, and is quite dispiriting that no-one really does too much to fight it. The whole city has become self-aware of its economic value and anything of any character and value is being carved up and sold off to anyone who wants a piece, for whatever (sometimes dubious) reasons they may have. The fabric of the place, the depth is being lost. Those little places in Soho you could hang out in - gone, replaced by luxury flats or poncy bar restaurants. The concert venues, the little corners where you could work and enjoy, the parts of Hoxton that had real grit, suburbs of south london that had normal housing prices, all gone replaced by a vacuous world of surface glitz and sheen but with not too much else undeneath. I don't know why people dont do more, over the 10 years i've been out it is noticeable what has happened. Maybe everyone is happy because their property has increased in value so the drive and edge of disatisfaction to do something about it has been blunted.

Some things are far too important. He can cross his legs until half time. :angel:

80% in all of Spain. Texting, phoning, eating or talking to their passenger. Driving just gets in the way.

After talking to some Sunderland fan about Arsenal and Liverpool fans protesting the 63 ticket for today's game:

People who think their opinion is the one true one and treat anyone who doesn't share it as wrong.

People in glass houses who throw stones. I'd have a look at Sunderland's support before saying anything about Palace. Roker roar, my ******* arse.

Sunderland fans in general. Arrogant bastards, seem to think anyone with any new ideas or movements in football is fake or some shit. They're nothing these days.




Yes, I'm irritated but this league's fans are something else. Can't talk football without hurting their egos.

Ed Sheeran.
Those rapists beards that so many men have nowadays.
TV adverts with adults using childrens voices.
People wearing sunglasses on the top of their heads.

Elderly drivers on country roads. The speed limit is what you should be aiming for, not twenty or thirty mph below.

We used to go and stay with my ex's grandparents a fair bit in France and they lived in a pretty and secluded village, the one road in and out was a 50mph road but it was a 5 minute drive in straight line. Every time they came to pick us up and drove us down this road it was infuriating, driving dead on 50 as about 40 cars overtook to the sound of the grandparents tutting in the front in disgust and muttering some kind of racist remark about the French.

Cyclists who swerve to avoid drains or potholes without looking at what is coming up behind them

Continuity Announcers.

I'm not interested in the crap you are serving up at random times in the future. I want to read the credits to get the name of the actor that has slipped my ageing mind and you have helpfully reduced the screen to the size of a postage stamp in order to advertise stuff I have no desire to watch. :veryangry
