Bit harsh on your mum, who Iím sure cleans up after you. Who cleans the shower? Get your own place and you can have it any way you like!

- I could also add do you check you leave no debris behind when you shower?

The fkn cold. Evil or Very Mad

Yesterday I was swimming at 8am in 22 degrees.

This morning I go outside to get the newspaper off the driveway and can scrape the ice off the car with my fingernails.

Fkn Bullshit. Sad

I figured out how to mount my Grandfathers blacksmith post vice on a bench in the shed finally today.

did the set up, drilled the holes, then went and got the vice to carry it in. 70+kg of cast iron. At the moment I lifted it up to put it on the bench, my fkn back spasmed. Mad Only had it in place for about a minute, but long enough to bend the steel frame of the bench.

Called it a day, neurofen and voltaren gel, but you are going on that bench if I have to rig a block and tackle.

Mate, you seriously expected your back to tolerate a lift of 150 pounds of iron at age 50 ? How long have you owned a back ?

I'm resigned to the fact I'm not in my 20's anymore but I refuse to admit I'm in my 50's. I can still pick up stuff that's too heavy for my 28 year old son

my heater has been playing up a bit since the start of winter (for me that was about April!) and a couple of weeks back it would go to reset every half hour or so, so I called our heater guy. Heís a cool dude, family friend, hasnít charged me yet for a service call a year ago! Heís alsways flat chat, year round, takes a while to get here! so he rocks up last night about 6.30pm unannounced, gave him a decent scotch and a hunk of freshly cooked roast beef, and this morning I woke up and went ahhhhhhhh, toasty warm! No idea what he did up there, but wow, itís weird, maybe itís been off for a while, cos itís a nice, even heat all through the house! Now I might survive winter!

Can and should are two different things, time to set your ego down. Rig up a block and tackle at least!

Well the heater is fixed, about all thatís been good this week. Three weeks ago I took my MIL. For a chest scan as she had a nasty cough/flu. She almost collapsed walking 100 m to the car so I got my SIL. To take her to the doc. Cancer had spread to liver and lungs. Three $£$%^%%$ weeks ago. She just went down hill. So last week we found a nursing home for her and the FIL who has dementia and is 90% blind. They went in today. And my dad goes into a retirement village Monday (I stood my ground, either we all go to clean up for him or none of us do!) so I just got back from the home. They say she has weeks or months. I hope itís fast. No one deserves to have to live like this. They said get the grand kids here in the next week because after that she will be doped to the eye balls. All three are 88 or there abouts, a good innings. Yes. But shit if they could just roll over and die in their sleep. Please.

How's your old man going to cope in a retirement village? My impression was he doesn't play well with others.

Yup, your correct! And I have no idea! Sadly, I donít care.ifi can avoid going up there I will, heís broke so we will have to pay for the move between the three of us, but 2 of us would rather pay than go up there! He doesnít have a friend left, he had 1 mate but told him where to go. I dropped in in December and he managed about 45 min before he had a crack at me, and I stood up and said, ok time to go, seeya, he said Iím only joking, and I said yeah jokes on me, bye. And walked.

He will be in a unit with a small lounge, invalid bathroom, small kitchenette and bedroom with a little courtyard, on the Internet it looks like one of those relocatables by the layout, but apparently they are brick. They have a dining hall, canít see that lasting long. Meh. I donít like feeling this way but what do you do?

My wife and I own a 2009 Ford G6 sedan. 160,000 km's. The 5 speed auto transmission has gone. $4000 big ones to get a refurbished one. A second hand one aint worth the trouble as there is an endemic flaw in the transmission.

You'd think, if there is an endemic flaw how is that the car manafacturers are allowed to get away with selling cars with defects?

Getting it fixed on Monday.

Will drive it for at least another 160,000 km before thinking of a new one.

Is this the first time the tranny has gone? Do you do much towing? Hills? Whatís the market value of the car? 160000 moderate to hard klm is pretty good! After all, itís a ford!
