  1. You better get out the gas stove just in case you will be stuck for a cuppa in a while!

  2. Someone once told that if you removed an electricians brain from his body and wrapped it in 147 layers of tin foil, then shoved it up a gnats ass, it would roll around like a BB in a boxcar.

  3. Ah! The gas stove! I have to write a post about that, because it is special. I think it should be in the Guinness Book of Records!

    Actually, they are back. They were refused permission to switch Poolbeg off, so they are working on live wires again. I have the hospitals on standby and am brewing tea to my heart’s content.

  4. Brian – that is very unfair on electricians. You have to admire people who can take 230V while standing on a steel kitchen sink. I wouldn’t do it!

  5. The gas stove is it gas or a Primus with Meths and parrafin?

    No sniffin now!!

  6. Gas.

    The Primus is in the garage. I have plenty of paraffin, but I drank the Meths.

  7. You’re safe to come back now. They are finished and gone.

    We now have a lovely house where if you switch on the kitchen lights, the shower flows hot, and if you switch them off again, the garage door closes. We’re going to have fun..!!

  8. I forgot to tell you that your doggy asked my doggy to ask me to ask you to install a switch at paw level so that she can watch TV while you’re in bed.

    Is it too late?

  9. 230 volts . . you wooses . . 240 down here, we know how to fry the bastards. (Actually both my brother’s are sparks which is probably why 5 of my down lights don’t work! and I have an unconnected Foxtel cable, which I didn’t ask for, sticking out of a 10cm x 10cm hole in my family room wall . . .)

  10. Actually Baino, I thought it was 220V [it always was in the past], but the Gaffer fella told me that it went up to 230V a couple of years ago. They keep sneaking these increases in when we aren’t looking!

    @K8 – I asked Sandy about this and she was very indignant. I will let her type in her response….
