A fiver for a haircut! It costs me £12 and that’s in Blidworth! He did use to work in Southwell so his prices have followed him. Come to think of it there’s no list of prices. I think he charges what he thinks you can afford. I always dress scruffy though!

I have a lady barber Ben.  Her name is Marie.  We usually talk dogs as she is a dog nut like me.  You'd like her.

 

Used to have a German barber in Calgary.  He always reminded me of one of those prison camp commandants you see in the old war films.  His favorite line was,  "i can take it off, but I cannot stick it back on."  :Shock:  Said in that abrupt German way they have.  Great guy.

We noticed a lot of barbers in S. Ireland are Turkish. We did wonder why they advertised themselves as such, are they better at their trade? I did Google Turkish Barbers to see if it was a speciality. Nope.

Only go off if the items are on a tagging system Margie,,,,actually watched him go thru the checkouts say 'bye' to the guard and exit.....

I am actually disgusted the way most company's (in grocery) take little interest nowadays in apprehending the culprits,,,

I attended a meeting recently held in a supermarkets 'community' room, a room provided free for local people. Along one of the shelves is a row of lever arch binders, all full, one for each month and labelled 'Monthly Shrinkage'. The file includes spoilage and damages but I'm told the majority was from shoplifting.  The total for the year must be huge.

Yesterday was a good day. Lots of time in the garden catching rays and repairing the damage wrought by high winds and heavy rain.

Today is forecast iffy weather..so I'm going to record some vinyl albums to digital.  It's a bit time consuming because it has to be done in real time, just like making up tapes used to be.  Results are generally better though as my record player makes better sounds than my CD player.. assuming a decent clean record.

On the other hand.. If the weather stays like it is now.. bright and sunny.. My plans may change..

Adapt according to the weather Col. There'll be many rainy days later in the year.

If anyone wants to see a walk report from my coastal trip 'Ousdale-Berriedale' before the photos mysteriously disappear once again then go to:

Wahey! I wonder if I have been putting too many photos in one post and the server didn't like it?

Another day rained off for the builders. Will the project get done in time? Will Mrs PP stick to her threat that I can't go to Scotland fishing in early Sept if it is not finished? Even when the builders have gone I have to install a floor, decorate and buy furniture....:rolleyes: Anyway, I'm going fishing tomorrow. Bogger the rain!

Did that.  Caught a few rays before it started raining.  Then set about remembering how to use the CD recorder...  I've copied a Shirley Horn album and the famous Getz Gilberto album from vinyl.  Just like the old cassette decks the machine doesn't always get the track gaps spot on, or will create an extra track gap when there's a silence. but it's possible to edit all of that after the fact.  It's a bit tedious because it's all done with buttons rather than just dragging things about like with a pc.  But the results are superb and don't rely on iffy PC soundcards..

I like your style PP.   I'm the boss in my house too, and I have my wife's permission to say so...

What system or programme do you use DJ., for transferring vinyl to digital. Alternately do you go from straight to CD recorder. I've only ever gone via PC so I can burn to CD or convert to mp4 to use with memory Stick. My bloody car no longer has CD player just USB slot or 3mm jack.
