  1. Made enquiry's about a MTM stock, rang,chatted and the crux was i would be sent by email photographs of blanks i might like.was looking for high grade wood.Recieved one picture, a follow up call,response was more due in a month call back. I made that call but no response at all. Portugal for me when travel is easier.
  2. My spelling is not the best, it reflects the broken nature of my education. I appreciate its probably in good part and take it as such.
  3. Coming home from my last day at school aged 16, in the hallway was a suitcase and i was thrown out by my mother. Went to live at my Grans. I didnt know it then but it was the making of me as an individual but i still bear that cross. The suicide of my mentor in my early years at work, a hard working and successful bricklayer who showed me that your earnings are directly related to your efforts, encouraged me off the Hod and onto the trowel. I owe him more than i can ever measure. My father, a shining example of everything i would not want to be, offering to fight me in a bar over drinks in Vancouver. His new girlfriend had slapped the bottom of my glass while i was sipping and banged it into my teeth, I was 23,worked the doors,at my peak physically and without the respect most Sons have, he insisted and started in. It ended badly for him and he checked into a different hotel the next morning. All personal mental pressures that affect me and my judgements now, trust is difficult for me.

    I am a Bricklayer, dont really lay bricks anymore as i have evolved in to more of a bathroom fitter for the disabled/elderly as an approved contractor to the Local authority. As a tradie its a decent living, varying degrees of luxuries entirely dependant on effort and or risk taken. The clients spoil the job, they all have the internet to dissect your bills/quotes on Mumsnet and will waste a ton of your time just to find out the guy they really want is not robbing them.Late evenings trailing about looking at work that you probably wont get,non payers,legislation and bureaucracy will be a test for you. Select something where you are "Needed" boiler repairs or call outs. Put the shoe back on your foot and will allow you to cherry pick other work to fill your diary as you see fit.

  11. Tony Masters, Northern Gunner to members, Your host if you ever visited Marne Barracks Clay Shoot has sadly passed today after a short battle with cancer. A great loss.
  12. That is good to here, we stopped going as it looked like a tip, cardboard all over the fence from the wind,loads of old machinery parked up rusting away like a scrap yard and his little dog running about jumping up at everyone/thing leaving paw prints on everything. Will make a trip back at some point now.
  13. the excess needs to be low, no previous SAC in the last 3 years , looks pretty good for you to get the offer i think.
  14. I will chip in for some more if they are short. I have heard a story about why he was so completely taken down from a man who claimed he was the second man in. A compelling gemtleman.
  15. Have you seen this on line? would you post a link please?
  16. Perhaps a call to Rob Hall at East Yorkshire, probably the regions hub for fast trap may yield a suitable prospect.
  17. One is the quiet man, achieved plenty to be proud of. And Brian Clegg, quietly achieved a great deal in his day. Much will depend on the personal interaction with the differing personalities and styles.
  18. It is a golden opportunity for the venue, i do hope the ignorance of the suns position and relevant target information problems that plague my visits to the regular thursday visits are all erradicated by then. Its all fur coat at the moment.
