Tag Archives: swollen wood

Wet hairy beaver and an 18 year old bald pussy.

On a lighter note – and triggered by something I wrote at the Sniper Central forums (of all places….):

So yes, the water tank is sitting on swollen wood – and I’m sure due to this news that this page will get Google searches bringing people here who are searching for “Swollen wood” – but I assure you, this isn’t that type of blog, and there is a time and a place for that type of thing.

You may think this type of Google hit is unlikely, but honestly it is more likely than you’d think.

The admin side of this blog shows me all the daily hits, popular posts and links etc. It’s all very interesting – especially the part that tells me what people have put into search engines to get to this page. I think my favourite has to be “Naked hare and tortoise”. The mind boggles as to what that person was searching for!!!

One thing that can double a page web hits is the following – and I thank all the teenage lads out there for that.

If a picture of an 18 year old hairless cat doesn’t get people visiting my web pages, then maybe they are more interested in a picture of this fine thick furred Canadian critter…

It’s odd really that so much interest can be generated in teens by such specific wildlife and domesticated animals!

I shall let you know, dear reader, what the latest search engine hits are – and if this page did in fact bring more people in…


Relax. BOHICA (look it up).

Parting with over £400 has left me with heating…. but I have had to turn it off because the “fixed”  boiler is making a hell of a racket.

Whilst looking to see where the noise could be coming from I ventured into the loft…. only to find the main water tank has been leaking from the stop cock. This was a repair a plumber carried out over a year ago – and the drip looks like it has probably been going on for that amount of time (I don’t go in the loft that often). The wood beams under the tank are saturated and the board it sits on is swollen.

I tightened up the nut, but it is still seeping. It has a vase under it to catch the drips for the mean time. I shall have to call the plumber tomorrow – and the boiler people again….

Roll on 2010.

BOHICA – thanks to POGO57
