Both corners are to tidy, I have some composite decking for the left side and the stuff under the hedge mostly needs to go to the tip.

The corner you are referring too needs the fence finishing, it all blew down in storms, I need to buy 8 fence panels but until we work out how money is going to last it's just plain cheaper to drink ☺

Mine would have to be down to my knees. Turns out my wife is a survivalist. She's a fuel dump in the garden shed and provisions to last a good while. Not much bog roll though. I suspect if we lived in Texas like my brother she'd have a decent armoury as well. I never knew. :shock:

Gov REFUSED ventilators from the EU, DENIED contracts to EXISTING UK medical manufacturers, yet have granted a contract to make ventilators to Dyson!

Rather oddly, Dyson has never produced them, nor has medical approval.

What can we learn from this?

Would these be the same ventilators that they didn't let the Italians have? Also the government has placed a huge order for ventilators with their current supplier if they can meet demand. If not it makes sense to get them from whoever can produce them and if rushing production means you can't do all the type approvals who cares? If I had a choice between no ventilator and one made by Dyson without a type approval I know what I'd choose! Dyson has already said they'd provide them at cost.

This is something else what pisses me off, why not get every company equipped to make them and get them out quicker :roll:

Dyson - home appliance maker with NO PRIOR medical ventilator making experience, receives order from Govt to make 10k ventilators FROM SCRATCH.

MEC Medical - UK ventilator manufacturer, making for years, receives NO order.

That ventilators are really quite easy to make and a lot of manufacturing plants could tool up for this and the government is looking outside of the box to protect as many people as it can.

And that you're bored 😉
