    Elderly tenant dog poo issue

    Something as simple as a motion detecting security light might be all that's needed,assuming it is happening under the cover of darkness.

    How long before meat=cigarettes?

    If meat gets taken off the menu I'm going to start eating vegans! Not only will it reduce the population but I'll get my meat and 5 a day in one go.

    Children and animals

    As a 3 year old I decided to wash the dog with the can of petrol my parents had thoughtfully left lying around,he legged it out the gate yelping in pain,shot across the main highway and into the lake. Don't put petrol on the dog!

    Wonder how DVLA would cope with these

    like most countries they generally get buried. The gov pays for health care and you get 80% of your wages paid while off work,we gave up the right to sue for personal injury and all employers pay into the scheme to help fund it.

    Hello and extinguishers

    Most have them on the top and just show a red and green background,as long as the needle is in the green it should be fine. I suspect that extinguishers in motorhomes last better than ones in properties as they get a regular shake up of the contents.

    Hello and extinguishers

    I've not looked at the date on mine but the little guage is in the green on both of them and that's good enough for me.

    About Time.

    I've come across travellers in the local parks and open spaces around Poole while out with the dog,it's clear they have caused criminal damage,cutting locks,removing bollards,ripping up the grass and depositing rubbish. I just don't understand why the current laws can't be enforced and why these...
