Using the brand new blade (for wood) on the electric saw to cut through metal sheeting

Cutting the top off the new 1 litre of wood glue instead of unscrewing it (then not mentioning it)

Washing the new car with a gritty dirty ragcloth

Hi Stevietee,

I may consider your Rabbit jelly moulds next Easter time!

Meanwhile 2 good tips for Ladies tights!

After 10 sessions of of Kino to straighten out my kneck and shoulders,  (possibly brought on, by helping to lay too many concrete floors! over the years. )

My French kino girl suggested that I go home and get an old pair of tights,wrap them around the window lock, stand very straight and stretch them to their limit,using my arms like rowing movements'

Hope the neighbours don't see!!

Tip 2) The tights could also be used for robbing a bank!!

Cheers Cas:

Cheap plastic Footballs to make Ornamental Balls,  to sit on top of concrete Gateposts as a Finial.

We bought cheap plastic childrens footballs - (any size you are looking for ) can be found in Max +/ Noz etc.

Husband cut a 2"hole in the top with a stanley knife, then filled them with with  liqued concrete mix, prodded it well down with a stick (to get all the airpockets out).

Left them to dry, for 2 to 3 days. He then cut the plastic ball off.

He then fixed them onto the top of our concrete gateposts .

Two years on, they are still looking good.
