What made you happy today?

Supposedly makes it cheaper for the insurance company but don't understand why they keep doing it as never seems satisfactory for anyone.

It’s very satisfactory for the nice thankyou envelope

I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

It generally is as the contractors want to keep a major customer happy. Problem is that if insurance companies allow the customer to choose contractors (which they can) and the customer is unhappy they still blame the insurance company. No win really. 

Andy, glad to hear you are back. Hope stuff gets sorted reasonably easily. 

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

Thanks @Colin P I deliberately asked the Insurers to deal with it all so (1) kept it simple for me as I work away mon - fri (2) no money to me so no risk and (3) job was Ins. Co and their agents problem end to end.

And they still fooked it up. Ho hum. IoM soon so life is good....

How bonkers is this - We slaughtered our last three sheep and sold them for dog food - we got just under £200.00 each for the carcasses - this is way more than we ever got selling for human consumption, if we were lucky about £140.00 (after slaughter costs, butchery and packing, etc..) and we had all the aggravation of finding buyers and delivering.

It just feels the world has rather skewed values when we get paid more to turn our sheep into dog food rather than the high end Organic food we have been producing in the past. It's good for us but it just feels a bit wrong.

And often - folks round here are getting more for knackered old ewes than yearling lambs

The markets are run like the mafia down here. Our neighbour took some down to Exeter market two weeks ago and got £68.00 each for hers (they are somewhat smaller than ours but even so..). She overheard the dealers agreeing prices between themselves before the auction started. We have never used markets for our animals and the more we here about them the more determined we are never to do so.

The neighbour was pig sick when we told her the prices we got, especially when we had offered to add hers to our consignment and she declined.

@march and yet Lamb is waaaay more expensive than virtually all other meats in a supermarket! Wierd. I have a mate who has a smallholding and sells Mutton for more than he does Lamb, which also doesn't make sense, but apparantly its quite an "up and coming" meat in restuarants, especially those with a Middle Eastern/African theme.

Seeing the red M100 being trailored away by it's new owners. I had many fun times over the first 6 years of ownership but hardly used it in the last 6 years. I only sold it because I knew Wayne will restore it to former glories and that Michelle will have all the fun that these little cars were made for.

Happy today. Well I guess so. Just spent 6 hours removing an exhaust manifold from an S1 so that it can be returned to standard and have a standard S1 exhaust fitted. Happy as I managed to get it off without having to lift the engine. No small feet as it was a tubular four branch and fitted tight as a ducks @@@. Now just to make sure the new one can be fitted without lifting the engine. Would have had it all done but bloody inspection lamp died on me. The S1 one is now well on he way and looking good.
