  1. I'll be direct Steve - limiting your partner's access to money etc etc isn't the answer IMO. The fault lies with your partner and you have to be brutally honest with her - tell her to get it sorted or else.
  2. If they were half way over when they lost the engine they'd have no choice Jim! No doubt if the pilot was Irish he'd decide to turn around and head back!
  3. Yes, all units come with remotes. Panasonic are not the cheapest nor are they the most expensive - my experience is that they are solid and reliable as you would expect from Japanese technology. The units we bought (1 and 1.5 HP) were manufactured in Malaysia. Kolin have a good reputation too - Koppel I have not heard much about. We bought all from Emcor who include installation in the price - they have their own installers which is a is plus IMO.
  4. That was my line of thinking, Tom. I went for the basic Panasonic units, very functional with no bells and whistles that I probably wouldn't use and just clutter up the remote control and likely cause problems at some point. I really think most A/C technicians here are, at best, no more than adequate and anything outside the norm is met with the response - you need a new such and such.
  5. Exactly. My stance is that I have nothing to hide so my wife is free to look at whatever she likes. That said, I'd be a little peeved if she felt the need to do so.
  6. I kinda side with Arizona Kid on this. Whilst it's true that vulgar displays of wealth exist in many countries, including ours, but our countries don't have kids on the streets with no food. OK, we can all give examples of seeing such things in out countries, but let's be honest it's not the norm. The problem is that it's down to the government to address the inequality, not the wealthy classes, and we know how that is going.
  7. For me, i just find the Boss term so unnecessary and a little demeaning when talking about a relationship. Just because one partner is providing more financial input etc etc than another doesn't make them more important. I know it's a little cliched, but a relationship is a partnership rather than a hierarchy IMHO.
  8. We all know who the Boss REALLY is in relationships - here, there and everywhere!
  9. One of the things I love about Christmas is not having to eat Christmas cake! I do like a mince pie though - with custard.
  10. Pretty much every store I went to based everything on room size to determine HP. I was advised when borderline best to go up a size, especially if you are looking at inverter type. We could have gone a little smaller in the bedroom but we wanted an inverter so 1HP is the smallest.
  11. Yes. I quickly discovered here that people would rather give a wrong answer than no answer! At first I would often ask my wife why she wasn't asking for directions when we were lost - I discovered in time why!
  12. I think they look good on the elephants
  13. I don't really know the actual rate to install for installation only but we were quoted unit + installation or total price only. 5K was about double the add-on from other stores who were quoting around 3K. We paid only 2k for a window-type installation - including cutting the (big) hole and installing the electric point. Very reasonable compared to split-type as it was a 1 1/2 day job and the split-types are installed in just over 1/2 a day.
  14. Mutually beneficial though? Reduced costs can be passed on to travellers and the time saving is significant.
  15. I don't think anyone like it Steve, but for a whole host of reasons people choose to live in gated or developed communities where properties are closer together. Safety in numbers and convenience were/are more important to me than the view. i'd love to have both but that isn't always possible and comes at a premium. That said, If I were to do it all again, I'd definitely think more about choosing a location with more space but hey ho.
