I am thinking of buying a small lathe so I can make serious watch parts and tools, handy to have in the workshop as somethings you just can't buy and have to make yourself, so the hunt begins, shock horror, for the mini lathes I am thinking about they start at £450, a lot of money to spend on something if you are not going to be using it a lot, so off to ebay, most are new but some used items are available but they want as much as a new one? OK, some may have a few extras but really, come on, £400 - £600, no, and of course the other problem is, they are all collection only because of the weight, not one is within 250 miles of me, so I will just have to wait until something local appears at a reasonable price, but it's driving me insane.
Why do cats have to shit in my garden, I have tried everything to deter them, I even bought some Lion shit, yeah, Lion shit, guaranteed to keep cats away! No it don't, in fact I think it was the worse deterrent i tried, so I may have to go for the electric fence idea, only enough amps and voltage to singe their fur.
I have already moaned about the post office service and how it has gone to shit. But I was even more pissed off when I went to buy a first class stamp, 64p, WTF, why so expensive, someone has got to offer a viable alternative to this.
Smart arse Kids
Lately I have come across some 13 - 14 year old kids, and they have a real problem in that they have no respect for anyone or anything, I ran into a group of 8 or 9 in the college the other day, they were there visiting the college, I'm not sure why, but they were running up and down the corridors shouting and screaming so much that I had to leave my classroom to find out what was going on, when I approached them they just looked at me and said whats up mate, WHAT"S UP MATE, I'm not their mate, that made me angry straight off the bat, so I told them to be quite and stop running un the corridors, so I got, why, who are you, and giggling, before I could continue they just walked off, as the got to the end of the corridor one of them shouted 'wanker' and they all run off. SO I am hoping they are there next week so I can beat the shit out of the little bastards.
Anyway enough said today, off to paint the shed.
