Little things that really annoy you!

Do you know about an event that you want to talk about? Is there a campaign you have started, are involved in or want to start? Inspired by Marvin Gaye this is your place to tell the world what's going on.

Oh I bit hard :oops: I told him that undeer no circumstances would he ever be welcome on my land again, if he EVER did any such thing again I would be instructing my solicitor. I also pointed out that not only did I not want him peering at what I was doing but if the view was not good enough he should have left the bloody hedge alone. I have also let the nettles and brambles grow all along my border with him so that he cannot get to the hedge.
Unfortunately I can't move the transformer as it belongs to the SEB but oh how I wish that I could!! Tis a thing that comes along when a property is empty for a while (not by my choice believe me), that people take advantage and do whatever they like and then the poor person that eventually comes back has to sort it all out!! Still lets hope he got the message :sunny:
Sing like nobody's listening, live like there's no tomorrow, dance like nobody's watching and love like you've never been hurt.

Has anyone else thought about this?
I know a few people like that. It's never their fault. They blame the world (or me) for their own shortcomings, never taking responsibility for their problems. But have you noticed, they're rarely happy or contented.

The worst ones are those insidious blame-passing situations, where you only realise you've been blamed after it's too late to refute it!
There is no question. Cap and Share or TEQs is the answer. Even Cap and Dividend!

Ry**air's latest money maker I go onto the internet for customer services and I am directed to a Yellow Number (cost € 3:00 per call) to be given another number on prime rate. :banghead:

try doing it all in French, it's even worse, especially as they have a talent for shrugging and ignoring all consumer rights!

people in macedonia ( and other contrys ) complete lack of understanding on how to care properly for animals.
the amount to starys, neglected and abused on the streets is appolling.
not to mention those, noticbly worse off, dogs who belong to someone who keep them permanently chained up, fed on the odd loaf of stale bread, with kids throwing stones and hitting it with sticks. the poor things are emaciated, paracite ridden, abused and neglected.
AND EVEN THOUGH THERE IS AN ANIMAL WELFARE LAW, THE POLICE FAIL TO ENFORCE IT!
if you try to tell them about an abused animal they tell you to get lost!
people say things like 'we cant afford to feed ourselves, why would we feed the aminals?'
IF YOU CANT AFFORD TO KEEP ANIMALS THEN DONT KEEP ANY!
they dont agree with steralizing their animals, so any attempt at controling the stray population is in vain because every year there is an abundance of new puppys and kittens born and dumped on the streets.
and the horses and donkeys are also neglected. iv passed dead ones at the side of the road before!
and they dont do free range when it comes to some farm animals. pigs, for example, live in a permanent meter square box of their own shit all their lives.
there is no organic either, unless for personal consumption, all of the fruits and veg soldat the farmers market/supermarkets have been heavily sprayd with carcinogous pestasides, nothing is regulated.
and all the sewage goes untreated into the rivers which causes havoc with the local ecosystems as well as all the way along the river and into the sea.

i could go on........

apart from that though, macedonia is a beautiful contry with lovely people, much worth a visit! :lol:

Google cars taking a picture of my home and dishing it out on the internet whether I agree or not. Even though I made the difficult decision to up sticks and move 2786 miles(and I'm not that young) to get away from that sort of thing.
