I'd register expensive things but never take 'extended warranty' on anything. Buy the best i can afford and look after it.
Those market research questionnaires certainly are an Abomination unto Nuggan. I quite agree Tony :x

Most household contents insurance covers any purchases you make, including an all risks section that covers accidental damage, loss, or theft outside of the house up to a certain limit. If an item is valued over that limit then you have to phone them and list that item on the policy for it to be covered, sometimes incurring an extra few quid premium. For example, all of my camera gear is covered by the 'all risks' section and valued at around £8000 if I'm carrying it all (a very, very rare occurrence). All I had to do was notify the company of each individual item each time I purchased it and pay £20 admin for it to be added as a named item. The premium remains the same but I don't have to worry about it afterwards. I never take out the shop offered insurance since you will still only get paid out once in the event of loss or damage. :D

Skim milk is an Abomination Unto Nuggan. I just needed to say that. Normal service may now resume.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Having just returned from the UK, I had to keep reminding myself to double the prices. D**n, everything seemed so reasonably priced at first! :roll: It's been a relief having seen most of my credit card statements by now; I didn't overspend. Or get rooked by currency conversion fees.

Mosquito spray trucks are an Abomination Unto Nuggan!

It's 10 pm and I've just had a cloud of malathion shot into my open windows. :shock: :evil: It hasn't rained appreciably here in over a week. There ain't no mozzies!!!! GAH!! Not to mention the sound like the deck of an aircraft carrier as the truck goes by the house. Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!!

Crikey phalarope, I would not be happy about being casually exposed to chemicals like that. I know it's regarded as "safe" but DDT was said to be safe too. :evil:

East Hants District Council's planning dept are an Abomination Unto Nuggan.

Here's our garden after one day of rain........and this follows a dry summer. Gonna have to swim to the shed in winter. :evil: And all because EHDC don't listen to resident's concerns about the ability of the local soil to cope with water run off. Before the next door neighbours build houses on their gardens we never saw this. There is a reason the council used to have rules re no more than 4 houses per acre. They now insist on at least 10 houses per acre! :roll: Too much concrete, bricks n mortar.....not enough open land to soak it up.........And I live on the highest hill in Hampshire at the end of the South Downs :roll:

And there are plans submitted for 400-500 more houses..........Muppets :evil: :evil: :evil:

Ugh. Sorry for the chemical dosing Carol. :(

Chilli, huge hugs for having to deal with such a dense council! :x

Typos in Kindle editions of books that have been in print for 25 years are an abomination unto Nuggan.
"Typos" that are the result of sloppy formatting - like footnote codes that link to the wrong footnote - are a major abomination unto Nuggan.
