Who you gonna blame? @DJ360

 

Myself, it’s the last time I buy a car with low profile run flat tyres, only brought it for the wheels, you need proper tyres in this country.

Yes Ben it is nice to get out. I did the other day but it was only to shop but it did make a nice change. Also in the village lots of things have changed. A few years ago , near us there was a landslide ( its mostly hills and vales here,) and finally it's been repaired and all the barriers have been taken down making a very narrow road wider again. So now we don't have to worry that going over the brow of the hill we'll meet another car thinking the same thing.

We get a lot of potholes around here especially in the summer as there are always tractors going back and forth to tend to the vines. We are only a country road usually with little traffic but when the vendemmia comes round it's like the north circular road. The potholes are repaired, come winter and they fill up with rain, freeze, break up the tarmac and the process starts again. This year after years of asking the council to do something they have retarmaced the road but have left the piece where the tractors turn because there are no potholes but that belongs to a different commune and it's not their responsibility.

Excellent news.

Had a look at your map Col. Pity you couldn't do an outline of your route, for dimwits like me. Zoomed in but couldn't see your gaff or you waving. :rolleyes:

No BK it's not all ours. It's a group of old farmhouses., 6 in all but only 3 inhabited. The pool that stands out is our next door neighbours at the back of the house. Ours is at the front, it's not obvious as it has a dark grey liner. The car on the drive is my dil's the smaller house at the front is my daughters, the whits car pointing in is mine. If you look carefully you might see the cactus!

I mentioned a number of road and farm names.  If you zoom in you will find them. However.. I also took a lot of photos with every intention of posting them... but late last evening we realised that the house was getting a bit chilly...

 

It turned out there was a fault on the CH boiler so that we had hot water.. but no circulation through the radiators.  Typical... coldest night of the year.  So I spent a lot of time trying what little I know about boilers.. to fix it.. to no avail. I also had to drag a couple of ancient fan heaters out of the garage to give us some heat... Spent most of Friday sending texts and pictures to the Plumber Guy.. who I know is very busy. He turned up about 5:00 pm and found the fault but had to drive back to his home for some bits.. returned and fixed it. (For the technically minded.. some components inside the diverter valve had.. unusually, failed) 

 

All good now but using a couple of 3KW fan heaters all day just to maintain 19C in the house will have cost a few quid... :Shock:

 

Also really didn't much like having to let the guy into the house..as he has been in and out of numerous houses on a daily basis.. but he wore a mask and I stayed out of his way. I also opened all doors and windows for a few minutes after he had gone.

Paranoid?  Moi?

Easy.  Go to Google Maps.  Find where you live.. either leave it as a map, or select 'Satellite'.  Home in on the bit you want to show. Copy the URL from the Address bar and post it here...

 

Here's the house I useter live in in Nottm.. which is no longer nything to do with my family:

 

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.9975478,-1.1758293,59m/data=!3m1!1e3

 

And if you pick up the little yellow figure bottom right and place him on your map.. you can then move his view about.. which is how I got this:

 

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.9977369,-1.17597,3a,38y,151.87h,98.1t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sMZEqVdQhBNQ3SDTEHhqaTg!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo0.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DMZEqVdQhBNQ3SDTEHhqaTg%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D68.018105%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i16384!8i8192

 

Odd to think I spent my formative years there.. and it was a lovely place to live..

Yet more terrible news from a place where you don't expect it

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-55663038

This is quite close to me, about 4 miles away. More details have emerged and it’s really quite shocking. The victim is a recently retired plastic surgeon and a former colleague has been arrested. Turns out that the suspect sued the health authority and failed. His appeal then failed too and he had to pay substantial legal costs. The victim was his boss at the time. They lived within a few miles of one and other.

That truly is reprehensible, for a member of the medical profession to have done such a thing.  From the brief news coverage, it looked as though he had apprehended a burglar or something similar.
