    Thanks Butters, you make it sound easy :-) Albert, like the poem, feel honoured from such a veteran poster! Burt, just got in from watching a marvelous England game so will look at your link once more sober :-) Monkey Boy & The Sick Moon, I'll be honest I work in an office, numbers is my game not electicity/oven elements. I appreciate the replies thank you all!

    They cheap and easy to replace? Not meaning to sound rude, but safer to get a man in with that level of question. I think you could be looking at around £60 to £100, and need to get a couple of quotes. No worries, thanks for the replies, will make some calls in the morning .

    Hi folks, Anyone know anything about fixing ovens? The bottom (main) oven of our zanussi won't heat up, fan runs still and top oven is fine....

    Lovely bit of comedy in the iomtoday news story on this - "The government’s Department of Infrastructure today announced that it had developed an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system" - The IOM Govt "developed" it? More like paid a stupid amount of money for it!
  11. I'm sure i've seen a Porsche in Douglas with MAN 8008, ha silly sod....

    Dog Hair

    I should point out that it's dumped over their fence into the back lane not directly into my garden. It does blow through the gaps in the fence into my garden or straight out of their hand into my garden when being thrown over their fence. We've started nothing, never done anything to them. They are a pain in the arse with the dog hair and the dog itself barking loud (and deep as it's a huge dog) at stupid times and for long periods of time. Then there's the kids on the trampoline at say 11pm sometimes screaming. I'm not a killjoy just think it's inconsiderate behaviour! Also we don't have a dog to return the favour :-) Moving is tempting as the neighbours the other side are annoying in other ways. Why can people not just be considerate for others and their neighbourhood?

    Ha love it! Tempting...will have to wait a day or so till we have enough rubbish, big bin got emptied.. Who should this sort of thing be reported to? Would it not be better to just talk to them? I appreciate you may hav already tried this, and that the sort of tool who does that might not understand what you are saying, but as a first response I would be avoiding reporting anything No point in engaging this pillock in conversation, one of those that looks down their nose at you! Tried to help them once with no thanks what so ever.

    Dog Hair

    Ha ha not a council house That's just grass running along by the lane behind and it's threadbare due to the decking in that garden being constantly hosed down to clear the dogsh*t off it and the giant paddling pool being emptied.

    Brushing your hound and chucking the clumps of hair over your fence, acceptable??
  18. Ta. How much cheaper was the 3rd party? If I remember rightly (as this was about 6 years ago) it was 2/300 quid I think, which I paid in installments, was half the cost of fully comp if not less but bear in mind I wasn't 16, I was mid 20's...still a potentially cheaper way of doing it. Used Kwik-Fit Insurance shopping via moneysupermarket or comparethemarket.
  19. I got myself a cheap car and got 3rd party insurance for the first year or so (pre & post test pass)....
  20. We arrived at TC for the stage @ 14.24 and there was a big delay, didn't set off till 15.07....4 minute odd stage (for us)...
  21. Can't wait! 8 Days to go.....co-driving in it :-)
  22. IOM Depositors Compensation scheme covers you up to £50k so you should be good in any Bank with an office on the IOM. Check the local rags for adverts re rates. Anglo (now AIB International Savings) I think has one of the best annual rates and the bank is owned by the Irish Govt (as a subsiduary of AIB).
  23. Cregeen is in per iomonline sorry already in another thread
  24. And you can bet that come the end of the financial year their profits will be up yet again! The increase has fook all to do with rising fuel costs and everything to do with giving themselves a 6% payrise (so I heard)
