Re: Driver up your bum-per

I find that the use of one's windscreen washer seems to cure this. My car is filthy so they end up with nasty brown wet spots all over their car if they are too close.

Doesn't help their tempers though but it does give me some satisfaction!

(The supermarkets referred to previously are the local IN.KAs with tight spaces and room restricted by the random abandonment of vehicles rather than the Champions and Lidls which appear to have more spacious parks with less need to manoeuvre out of spaces). Filippos. Excuse my ignorance but could ...

Since then, however, I haven't bothered about the various scratches and dents caused by careless drivers in (mainly) supermarket car parks. Filippos. Oddly, and happily, after eight months my car has received fewer marks whilst in car parks than any car I had in the UK. It has, however, plenty of t...

I notice the all important phrase...""A study claims that .." Can one volunteer to take part in a study? Do you get paid for being studied?

I see it says that we turn off at 42. Well I'll turn off at 11.42, ust after I've had my hot chocolate.

Thank heavens we've only got agricultural water - which is OK for showers etc. 45,000 litres costs 10 (TEN) euro. Which I make €0.222 per cu.m.


That third filter people mentioned must really be something special!

Drinking water is free from the spiring at Zou.

The ag. water to our land comes part of the way through metal pipes. We're told that this is one of the reasons it is unsuitable for drinking. I suppose that plus only 2 out of maybe 3 filters could make sense. We still use it for everythingelse though as we have no connection to "mains" water.

ok so a house built on one stremata would have to use 1000 litres of water per day to equal the agricultural usage for the same stremata put to agriculture. I know household usage adds up but does it get near to 1000 litres per day every day? I really have no idea but it sounds a lot. If you just t...

t I just wonder if agriculture or houses use up more water per equivalent area. To give you a rough answer - I put 7 hrs water on my land every 3 weeks. 7 hrs @40,000 ltr p.h (approximately) = 280,000 ltrs divide by 21 equates to 13,333.33 ltrs per day divide by size of land 12,940 sq mtrs = 1.03 l...
