Cultivate good friends who send helpful mails in times of stress! I had one this morning, cheered me up no end!

If, like me, you are a pipe smoker, rotate your pipes regularly, clean them and let them rest, they smoke far better! (Not a very useful tip for most of you I know.... We are a dying breed!)

Sorry Stanley but they'll have to go. Mark my words.

I agree.
Only schmucks smoke!
My young neighbour smokes like a train. To hear him coughing up every morning is truly disgusting.

Some new oak sleepers are being used as steps in our new garden. Three of them had about 30cm sawn off the ends to make them fit. I've now got the off-cuts in our garage. I'm sure they'll be useful for something. :smile:

We never take the off-cuts home. We have a "no junk" policy.
Apart from that, we have no imagination for 30cm off-cuts :laugh5:

"Only schmucks smoke!" Well there you are, Maz has spoken! (Takes deep breath, doesn't cough and lights pipe.....Today's tip, go to hell in your own way!
Funnily enough I am coughing more than usual, a funny little irritating dry cough, but this is a side effect of the Ramipril blood pressure drug they have put me on to to protect my kidneys. It's a very common side effect even in non-smokers!

If I discard them I'm sure that in about 5 years time I'll wish I'd kept them! :extrawink:

Less than five years if we have a cold winter...... besides, 12" lengths of good hard wood aren't junk in this establishment! ring a lumber dealer up and ask for a quote for them, you'll be surprised at the price!

If you forgot to attend to the insulation of the condensate drain from your condensing boiler last year, get it done now. The insulation had blown off mine and I had to drain it internally during the frost to keep the CH boiler running but my friend Ian dealt with it for me!
No sweat for the Oz contingent.......

It's never a bad idea to start the day with hands that are as near germ-free as possible. It struck me as I was going through my morning routine of coffee brewing, sterilising my pint pot and cleaning the sink that in effect I always start with hands that have been exposed to dilute bleach. Can't be a bad thing when you think of all the germs they are exposed to during normal activities.

I know that some people would say I was obsessed with my sink and toilet and they may be right! However, I have a very clear sight of what is important and don't waste any time on being an obsessive compulsive cleaner. In some matters you would probably think I was a bit of a slut!
I think that's today's tip, decide what is important in your life and spare no effort to address those matters but ignore what you have decided isn't important. What matters is the overall condition of your existence, are you pain-free, happy and satisfied. Are you attending to the really important things like relationships and planning for the future. In my case I have given these things a lot of thought and whilst I might be wrong, I think I have got equilibrium. I recommend you all to decide the boundaries for yourselves. Good luck!

Beware of enterprises that involve packing day bags with items like slippers and dressing gowns!
