    Utility Bills

    If this helps and just in case you don't know - the break points at which the fuel gets cheaper is 900L and 1800L (1800 I think but worth checking)- If you go over 2100 litres then you have to pay the commercial rates which are a lot higher.

    BoilerJuice quoting 46.95 plus VAT for us as of today.
  3. Looks like my Landcruiser was a smart buy, it's now worth a reasonable amount more than when I bought it 3 years ago!
  4. Bastard Builders left a ladder inside the garage next to the Lotus fouling the the garage door mechanism which went over when I opened the garage door taking paint off the side of the car. Fortunately we have not had their last invoice so a deduction will need to be made to cover the repaint. Seriously angry over this as it is just laziness on their behalf especially as I have just paid to have it detailed and ceramic coated.
  5. Oh good - another project (well at least it's a little one)
  6. Not a bad view to come through to on a morning - from our new Kitchen and decking.
  7. Fancy a challenge?
  8. Here's another one Sky news has just interviewed a lad who is walking from Yorkshire to London to raise awareness for the need of a Carbon Tax. I was thinking fair enough he's getting off his backside and doing something he believes in until it was stated that Mum was following him in a camper van! FFS he was labelled as a climate activist and all he was doing was pointlessly adding to the worlds carbon outputs. We spend our lives being bombarded with lectures on how bad climate change is and being made to feel guilty about doing pretty much anything whilst the protestors / activists / politicians can do what ever they like! Another one - a couple of days ago 2 old farts were on a bridge over the A38 with Extinction rebellion and climate protest banners having a go at all the tourists for daring to come to Devon for a break. Can we have an extra option on the poll of - Yes I know climate change is real and we really should do something but F£$k everyone as I am fed up with the guilt trips and hypocrisy being spouted by everyone (especially the politicians and younger generations). Rant Over!
  9. Just another case of do what I say not do as I do - politicians - bloody hypocrites the lot of them.
  10. Do you supply or have you heard of raw pet food? This has become incredibly popular over the past few years. A friend of ours has a business producing and is now one of the biggest in the country (it is ridiculous how her business has grown). If it is of interest I can pass her details on to you - she sells to shops as well as individuals. There is real money to be made out of raw pet food (frozen) sales, we used to travel miles to get ours before she started up.
  11. You have obviously never owned a V8 Esprit!
  12. I never understood the reluctance with Hydrogen IC engines. Great video, someone thinking (and coming up with solutions) in a truly practical manner, and British Engineering - good on JCB. The first truly workable solution I have seen for farming / construction industries, great stuff.
  13. Yes I suspect Devon will be a bit of no go area for locals this weekend.
