hi ray

i assume fleet hants

i was a supervisor for sciaky welding machines for a while one of the guys said in the old days they had so many homers on the go that getting the work jobs done was a problem they had a foundry and did a lot of brass stuff, one of the regular jobs were candle sticks for the jewish community in slough and yes chimney breasts were also popular

funny im here at home watching the ascot races on the tv but can also hear the commentary from the tannoy at the track and loads of choppers over head

Yes, Fleet Hants. We bought a 3 bed sem det on the Pondtail estate before we got married and at 22 years old. But it was a silly whim and going down there every weekend to do the garden and maintanence beat us. But Farnborough air show was something else. I can still remember nearly being shaken off the shed roof when the Vulcan test bed for the Bristol Olympus engine almost went vertical at the end of our garden!
Two years of tenants destroying the place and we came out just breaking even.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.
