Drat, still no cap full of nails, a long stand and buckets of steam.

All apprentices jokes from -------I can't honestly remember.

All well,

The long stand is available, Norman, right next to sky hooks and spare spirit level bubbles. Click on 'Tools':-


Also, although they don't stock buckets of steam, they can send you bags of entropy.

Sir John,

Under the tool section, regarding the pocket multi-tool, I have a couple of questions,
1 - Is it UK made? Chinesee? Indian?
2 - Do non UK residents have to pay the VAT?
3 - Do they offer the deluxe (bigger) Model?

Just ordered some of those welding sandals.
Can get hot around here in July.
I wonder if I should were socks or not.
Wife says sandals and socks DO Not go together, but I just want to play it safe :D

There is also the articles by the late Gerard Hoffnung.
I tried to find them and failed. He was into cartoons, music and so on.
It was the time when package deals for holidays were about to happen but people were trying to do it themselves.

The reply to one booking went something like this

'I am not good in bath but I am good in bed.
Every room has a French widow affording delightful prospects'

And I would dearly like to hear more.

Just this past Thursday I got my order of 400' of water line from them and I'm thoroughly displeased with their packaging.

I got a yard of pump water and it wasn't even wrapped
