That's my attitude with it. I used to have old vans so I can relate to the above, your just bringing hasstle on yourself. I recall an old transit I had about 10 years old, it was pot luck wether it would turn over on a cold morning, looking back, I'd think how can you run a business like that.
I hate k rend with a passion, but for dash receivers there's not many about.
No I didn't sort it,it kept clogging up. luckerly there was 4 of us on the job, as there always is with my dashing jobs. I pissed about cleaning the machine out whilst the other 3 put it on by hand.
iPads...luxury......When were kids, we were that poor we had to drink out of a Rolled up newspaper and suck on a damp cloth...there were 150 of us living in a shoebox on road, and then dad sliced us in half with a bread knife, when he came home...
Something has to be done about it, Leeds is going the same way. But you drive into Leeds in summer and you can see the smog in the air, kids having asthma is on the rise, if kids are getting poorly, then it has to change. I don't know about charging direct as it effects the poor directly that...
Apprenticeships should be better funded. Problem aswell is youngsters don't want to get in the trade nowadays it's too dirty,hard graft etc leading to a real skill shortage down the line. I always saw an apprenticeship as a right of passage into the trade but I guess times are changing.
Yes to a certain point,
But people say why spreads are treated at the bottom of the pile etc, plumbers, joiners, sparks etc in the main all get qualified where as spreads mainly don't. I'm not saying it's a guarantee of quality, but it gives you a sound foundation to work from.
Yep, it was the late 1990s when I did mine. Times change, but I recall not getting evidence on site of an archway with fibrous detail on site, and we did it at college to get the evidence. Fair play going into the teaching, I couldn't do it, the box ticking and young lads with attitutude would...
That was the issue when I did my apprenticeship and level 3.
I recall it was barrel ceilings, circular columns etc, with a bit of fibrous and external work. Fortunately my old firm did it all so I could get the evidence, plus you can do your columns in a bay at college, you could make your...
Burnley will be safe as houses, I said the same last season when you said they'd go down. They have a formula and stick to it, tight at the back, goals in Barnes, wood, McNeil up front, not the most attractive football but it works.
It's hard to get a shot gun/fire arms license, dumblane in the 90s saw to that. Don't believe the daily mail etc saying it's easy it's really not. The police come out to meet you etc the criteria is extensive.
If you selling it, have you thought about Ian at pft to sell it on your behalf.
I sold my previous L with Ian, he sold it the next day, money was in my account instantly, all very easy and hassle free.
I had a labourer a few years ago that worked for me, sound fella but thick as mince really, who's mrs grand parents died, they inherited circa 2 mil about 10 years ago, He started buying up industrial units and must be worth double that now.
I can only speak from experience, I was fairly into plastering at one stage, I had multipul spreads subbing, I had the maintainence contract with a housing association and they were on ceilings, patching etc.
A good pall of mine runs a decent size roofing outfit, he tells me his outgoings are north of 100 grand a month, so you'd think he'd be doing alright in life,yet he's still as tight as a camels arse in a sandstorm...worry is all relative isn't it, a one man band spread can worry about finding...
I used to, but moved away from internals about 10 years ago, it just became a race to the bottom and margins getting squeezed etc.
I find externals more profitable particularly on domestics as we do leadwork, replacement gutters etc and also gives a bit of variety.
Winters are generally getting...
Blagged it.....by keeping 5 clean sheets in a row, finishing top of the group, beating Germany etc, you can only beat whose in front of you...England have genuine world class players. Italy are a class act but a one off game who knows.
