I changed mine, as I tend to do every few months, but I would imagine SW's is in need of refreshment ;)

I don't know to be honest, because it's not like it's hosted anywhere other than this server and if the others are working I don't see why his isn't as well.

Walking through Maidenhead this afternoon. A motorbike came down the main street, all big rev's. The rider had a black crash helmet on and a white 'T' shirt. Looked a bit like Marlon Brando in some film or other. The image was rather spoilt by the 'L' plates on the front and back of the motorbike. Made me smile.

Young fella down the road has just passed his driving test a few months ago, still on his 'R' plates (theres one for some of you!) He is driving around in a 1 litre Fiesta which is fine, first car and all that but he has fitted an exhaust that rattles windows as he passes, which is maybe a good thing because it kind odf hides the boom, boom, boom from the stereo. It must be nigh on impossible to turn what with the size of the wheels in the normal wheel arches, you couldn't fit a fag paper between the metal and the rubber. As for tinted windows, enough said.


Yep I'm getting old.

The travelling community have returned to the field at the bottom of my garden.
Quite a few caravans and some of the proper horse pulled versions.
Lots of horses I counted 26 in the field yesterday along with one donkey :shock:
Also chickens and very noisy Cockerell.

Fortunately they are at the other end of the field as its a little noisy to say the least. Feel sorry for the neighbours next to where they are all camped.

So sorry to hear that SW,

I lived for years with a halting site close to where i grew up and it was always chaotic with them around. For you it's harder because they are not a permanent fixture.

when we were getting ready for school one morning we had two horses in our front garden chewing up all the newly sprung daffodils that arose a few days earlier, I always remember the anger in his face as his garden like many British and Irish men love, but he was afraid to do anything about it because the traveling community are brash and very volatile especially in a group.

As i grew older I got to know some of the permanent residents in the Halting site and as things go their whole family grew to regard me as one of thier own. I always found that if any traveler tries to give you any guff, stand your ground and show them that although your petrified or reluctant to take on the whole lot of them, you will if you have to. They only know how to respect others when they see you can overcome your fear of them.

If you back off and show fear they will never give you the time of day and always look for reasons to mess you up in some way. I have had some great times with those lads and their families over the years, and because they were permanent fixtures in that area of the city they always had their kids going to local schools. They eventually were given homes within our community and they never gave any troubles since then.
Give me a pair of binoculars, a blue bucket and a translator, then i will get you promoted.

I think they aren't entitled to as its on your property and so belongs to you. It would have been nice to consult with you. If you erect a fence the good side should face out to the neighbours the rails etc should be on your side simply because it makes the fence harder to climb from the outside not because as many think it should look better for the neighbour.

Same thing has just happened here in reverse. Whilst away out neighbour has built a cracking fence at the rear, first thing he said was "you work away and stain it any colour you want on your side."

As you installed it, it's your property and they aren't allowed to do anything to it without asking your permission first.

Think you may find in your house deeds that you are responsible for one side border and one of your neighbours the other.
So if you have built the fence to the side you are responsible for he has no right to do anything without your permission.
However if you have built it at the other side and your neighbour is responsible then he can do what he likes (even pull it down).

Its normally the boundary to the left of your house looking from the street.

Do I have any rights in relation to my neighbour’s fence?
If your neighbour is legally responsible for a boundary fence, you should not paint your side of the fence, attach nails to it, and so on, unless you have permission. If you do not have their permission, doing so could amount to criminal damage.
If you are unsure as to who owns the fence, it is always advisable to discuss matters of maintenance and repair with your neighbour. In such cases, it is common to agree who will maintain or replace the fence, and to share the cost of doing so. You could also enter into a Boundary Agreement, signed by both you and your neighbour, setting out who is responsible for a boundary.
If you are unsure as to who owns the fence you should discuss matters of maintenance and the like with your neighbour before carrying out any such work yourself.
