They wouldn't do it in Thailand. I would hear a mobile food vendor outside my place 10 times a day. Icecream to brooms to noodles. Councils need to be smart here. Ban them in the streets of the complainers and put a flyer out naming the dickheads.When they get dog crap in the letterbox and a bit of old fashioned neighbourhood rumours they might learn to be a bit more tolerant. I mean these icecream vendors are not roaming around at midnight.

This from a uselless council that charge Mum and Dad water rates when they are on tanks, and rubbish collection fees for a vacant block (and then queried why Mum wanted the bins)

Sanity prevails as the council throws out the ridiculous proposal.

If you love your footy club so much, if it genuinely means so much to you, then BUY A $£$%^%%$ MEMBERSHIP YOURSELF!

Don't come crying to me on the odd chance your team might make the Grand Final, and you want my ticket.

Honestly, this is the time of year you realise people have no shame.

I hope. Already been offered $1000 each if Richmond and/or Adelaide make it.

These people piss me off. But I'm not adverse to taking their money. Razz

Mancold is manflu.
Picked it up on the bike ride.
Had the work based injection some months ago but there are 4 typrs of flu, mine came from QLD right in the heart of Texas.
Coughing up more plegm than there are moustaches in the middle east.
I'm not usually that phlegmatic about it but thems the breaks
My last week was Long service leave
Meant to start 4 nights night shift M, T, W & Thursday
Taking Mon & Tuesday nights off sick & will make a decision tomorrow late pm about Wed night
Still have some fluid like sounds in one of my lungs but this has improved since last week & my second course of anti-biotics.
Still freely coughing up shite that th cough medicine is assisting but not fixing
Night sweats have reduced but not quite ceased.
My blood pressure which has historically been fine (120-130 / 80-90) is a bit low: currently 107/67.

Looks like the waste water outlet is blocked again. Probably tree roots.

The gully trap under the back deck is overflowing so the pipe is backing up. Mad have to get a bloke in with one of them long auger cables. No real urgency, the few turds popping up are less than the dog makes and between the shower and washing machine water it's not hurting the garden.

You can do the thing with the auger cable yourself, Stui. The gear is readily available at any of the usual equipment hire places.

One word of advice: don't. It's hard, dirty, tedious, and bloody frustrating. Sure, it will save you about 50% of what a professional would charge you. But trust me, you'll very quickly wish you hadn't cheapskated. It's a rotten job.

And this from a bloke that is usually happy to take on most jobs: I'm happy to do roofing, fencing, construction, bricklaying, concreting, plastering (real plastering, not just crappy plasterboard), tree felling, painting, tractor servicing, you name it. I'd be comfortable doing a fair bit of electrical and plumbing work too except that it's a good way to invalidate your insurance. Not worth the risk. Besides, I have a good mate who is a plumber. I do his computers, he does my plumbing, all on mate's rates. Sweet.

Doing your own drain clearance: just say no.

Stui, if you were on my side of town, I'd do a good deal for you. I average 2-3 sewer blockages a week. Shouldn't have to pay more than $220, I charge around $180. Go a small operator, the larger mobs try to get a dig-out with every blockage, absolute rogues.

And you'd pay $80 or $120 to hire the equipment. Bit of a no-brainer.
