  1. Clermont


    I do, how else are you going to colour your guests water.
  2. I thought I was crazy howling at the moon, but I'm pleased some-one else enjoys things in the night sky, try giving them a howl it relives all pent up emotions.
  3. Before I buy anything over there, I ask were warranty work is done. General answer, "they never break down Sir".
  4. Brett, no-one could beat the old Harry De Wheels.
  5. Steve google, I think his name is "Chan Road," and he goes through the process of inheritance. Don't let the old fellow give you the land or you buy it off him, like old 55 said, it isn't worth the trouble.
  6. We were heading back home to Oz, and I've even sat on their baggage conveyor when they buggerd up the wife's passport renew. Yeah a quick wit when they try to beggar you around helps. They bugger you around, you hold the whole process up. As for the Chinese, I'm 6', long armed and not overweight, all pric= and ribs is how some describe me, I've had the little fellows try that in Hong Kong and a loud bellowing voice telling them to get back in line while waving the arms around above their heads, gets plenty of attention and the people that try it soon fall back in line. Remember, after all no-one knows you, so don't feel ashamed, that's what I keep telling the wife.
  7. Yeah they again tried that bulldust on the wife and me last Christmas, we've been through the customs heaps of times, plenty off stamps to prove it. Nowadays I just sit down on my haunch blocking the passageway and tell them I'm too old to stand for to long. The wife chatters away and within a few minutes we were on our way. It's not the first time them custom people have had a crack at us, so now I squat down in the most inconvenient place to cause the most disruption, and when I finally get up, I give a little off balance wobble.
  8. Yes sadly there are jealous women over there and sometimes we marry one, mine is a beauty, no worries even when she carries on a bit. Calmly I tell her, " there is only one like you love, but if you can find another let me know and I'll weigh the odds up on which one to keep." Thank the lord she's not over confident in English or know when I'm taking the micky out of her when she gets into one of her woman moods.
  9. Another one that hasn't heard of the mile high club.
  10. Whew, I'm pleased you outlined the whole story, When I saw the heading, I though here we go again, another price hick in the airline fares.
  11. Mike stick with the 300 or 200 square any smaller and it is labour intensive,. Make sure the concrete area your tiling is well settled, a month or two should do after laying of concrete. In the PI's expect over time a few tiles may crack but will only be fine cracks, nothing much you can do about it, and remember, most grouts are porous if your doing wet areas, google procedures.
  12. Mick a bit ignorant here, what is muslin cloth please and being 40 days old doesn't that give it a stale taste, here in Aus., its about 7 to 14 days old before eating, thanks.
  13. Steve, stick to the 300 x300 or smaller, quakes and ground movement are your biggest enemy over there.
  14. Back on track again, both feet tied to the chair to stop me floating away, and yes hospitals from what I've seen of them in the PI's seem to be OK, in the general nursing skills seem to be up to scratch. What the wife tells me, it's getting to the hospital that's the killer, traffic, lack of staff to man the ambulance, inexperience ambulance assistances, it's the first initial interaction that determines your outcome, that's what's lacking in the PI"s. still out of reach
  15. A few of you have stated if it's to be it's to be , all good and well, but through many a trial and tribulation in my life, I don't think that I've ever backed down and chucked the hands in the air and said I'm ready. No and I don't believe anyone would lay back and say my numbers up, a little part of the grey matter kicks in, it's called self preservation, nothing else. What I was writing about was get your ultra sounds done, ex rays, blood tests, and if anything is crook fix it before going over. Still go over but don't be complacent, just make sure your tests are done at a reputable hospital. The doc told me, it's not like the old days, these blood test, ultras sounds, CT scans are marvelous and their looking into how this slipped through the extensive testing I'd just been through. I don't cry over spilt milk so I wont be wanting answers. she's still out of my reach.
