    I NEED one of these.

    It would certainly liven up the club AGM.

    I used to be in tne waste industry and know quite a bit about speccing up bin wagons. Good chassis the Econics. I know all about what crews get up to as well. Double siding, grey waste, safety bypassing, I’ve seen the lot. I’ve been to more fatal inquests than I ever dreamed. Good on you for pushing safety. Never want to go to another one where a little girl gets reversed over, a Polish crew member gets crushed because he didn’t speak English, or see a homeless person compacted after falling asleep in an 1100l Taylor bin.

    Happy Birthday Mr Rowlands.

    For some reason, Life Members can't see any birthdays today (ahem @Chris King - Webmaster and Joint North East AO) but a very happy birthday to a personal hero of mine! Enjoy Mike and thanks again

    RFID Thieves

    Out yesterday in town when I saw an elderly lady with a hearing assist dog being very closely followed by a gypsy (a term I don’t use loosely) woman. I didn’t like the look of the gypsy’s attention so I turned and got in behind them. The gypsy woman threw some dust over the top of the elderly woman, making her stop. At that point, the gypsy pulled a device out of her bag and held it against the elderly woman’s handbag - obviously a crude RFID reader trying to steal her card info. In what was probably with hindsight the wrong thing to do, I jumped forward and grabbed the RFID reader out of her hand. Both women understandably cried out, for different reasons. The gypsy then tried to assault me to get it back, but even at my advanced age, I fended her off and started shouting for the police, which made her scurry off like a rat. After I explained what had happened to the elderly woman and encouraged her to buy a RFID blocking purse, I went to the police station, made a statement and gave them the device. No idea how much info the thieving c*** had in it. Last night I ordered a new RFID blocking wallet. I suggest you do the same if you already haven’t done so. You can’t trust banks to refund your money these days.

    Sunset tonight

    Sunsets in Antiqua are nice. No Westfields there, though.

    Brake light not working

    Don’t forget to take an emery board to the bulb contacts in case they’re rusty. Check the continuity of the power wire from the back of the housing and the connector itself.

    Whats yours called and why!

    Whats yours called and why!

    Many people know mine is called The Wench, but fewer know why. It’s because she’s colourful, flashy, noisy, demanding, hates being ignored, likes it rough, smokes a bit, drinks like a fish, strictly for amusement, prefers to have her top off, and if you’re inside her for more than an hour your bum goes numb.
