Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Made a new drink!

(new drink to me, other drinks are available)


you need 7up and vimto cordial,

add vimto to glass as if making up cordial then use 7up.

and it tastes just like Cola cubes!!!!!!!!!

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Today.. we got the concrete base down! the pit now has a floor.. however it was very flooded, but i came up with the idea of putting a sump in one end of it and thats worked quite well!

will be a few days till we can get the blocks layed. hoping that the base will set with all the water around >_< it was a bout 2 ft deep this morning!
good job i use to work at a pond shop.. one of the "dead" pumps they threw away came in handy lol

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

I've been teaching Kru(my 4 year old son) to whistle the dog. I told him when he can whistle the dog will come to him so he's been practicing for the past few weeks.
This morning Kru said "dad I can whistle".
A rush of air came out of his mouth but no whistle.
I said "keep practicing, you'll get it right soon".
Then the dog waked in the room and Kru said "see dad"?
Obviously a coincidence, so I took kru into the kitchen and told him to do it again.
Yeh you guest it, the dog walks in and Kru has a huge smile on his face.
I'm thinking no fukin way, so I boot the dog outside, wait for him to start sniffing about and tell Kru to whistle.
The dog instantly looks up, walks back into the house and sits in the kitchen looking at Kru.
So on the 26th of January 2012 my son learnt to whistle, unfortunately only dogs can hear it ...

Also 20 (nearly) also looking at a newer car.
Audi A3 1.9L and Ford Fiesta ST 2.0L are insurable at just over 1,000 Fully Comp. (Up to 4,000 miles a year. - otherwise a bit more costly)

Sadly the Mitsubishi Shogun / Pajero 2.8L Intercooled Turbo is still over 2k to insure and now due to the "Green Emission Zone" (my house is just inside this zone) also means I Cannot have one anyway

My smile:
Starting to get somewhere with Landlord & housemates and should be getting an agreement signed Hopefully tomorrow, if not early next week

Bit of a waste of money but when i get my Deposit back i will be able to pay for a new (needed) exhaust for my car - might go Stainless Steel Cybox system (Cat Back) 150 or standard 60..
