Good morning from Australia
 
Good morning everyone. I'm new here (obviously) :wink:

I live in Bundaberg Queensland Australia. At the moment I'm renovating my house. Well a friend and I are lol. It has been a steep learning curve, but we will get there!

:hammer:

good luck and ask away do you have HGTV and DIY on the teli???? any question is a good one we just need info to answer it...

Arn68 03-21-2014 09:04 PM

Thanks
 
G'day Biggles, I have DIY on the teli, and watch them religiously! We have picked up some very good 'tips of the trade' from that show :thumbup:

The tradies we have are wonderful. Would you believe the sparky, plumber, and chippy and all named Paul!!! It gets very confusing at times. :confused1:
But they are a font of information and are only too happy to pass on tips

Cheer for now

What may I ask is a "chippy"?:)

Carpenter according to the English old school dictionary?

I know what a sparky is (electrician) and have worked with a few of them.:laughing:

Good Morning from Australia
 
G'day Yuri,

You are absolutely correct! A chippy is a carpenter! :thumbup:

I am ex military, we always call the carpenters 'chippy's' and the electricians 'sparky's'.

The sparky we have is fantastic! He's been with us from the beginning, nearly 2 years now. We do things as we can and as finances allow. Thankfully he's very patient with us :lol:

Cheers for now

Sparkys are no fun with then spark out the door opener system in a hospital because they were too lazy to shut off the power or you are working with 600 volt 3 phase power. Mine did.:yes::whistling2:

Arn68 03-23-2014 10:20 PM

Sparky's
 
G'day Yuri,

:eek: What joker:jester: did that!
No our Sparky is very safety conscious thank goodness!

We're trying to find a tiler at the moment. They're very expensive here. Up to $180/m2!! I wish I earned that much money in a day lol

Cheers

A complacent one. The doors are held open by electromagnets which release when a fire alarm goes off. Low voltage control system and Sparky tried changing a part live and created himself a couple hours extra work with the little spark.

One final question: Do Women glow and men plunder? From the famous Men at work video.:laughing:

Morning Yuri :yawn:,

Well all I can say about your Sparky is, he's a bloody wombat!

Hmm, do women glow...I'd have to say yes they do! Well most do anyway
:yes:

Do men plunder? I'd have to say that the correct word would be blunder...and yes they do, frequently :laughing:

How about where you are Yuri?

Cheers

Women glow, heck we can hardly see em all bundled up in their Winter clothes and parkas.:yes:

The politicians plunder our pockets for all the money they can find.:wink:

Arn68 03-25-2014 02:56 AM

G'day Yuri,

We're just going into Autumn now, but up here in central Queensland, it doesn't get that cold which is wonderful.

As for the Polies plundering our pockets, well what can I say...Old "wing-nut/Neanderthal Man" will send everyone (except themselves and those with money) broke! :yes:

Cheers for now

It is an upside down world you or we live in depending where you stand. We just had the first day of Spring. I hear the water in your sink goes down counterclockwise, is that true?
