Re: What have you just bought?

NOT Perlite for my gardening.

I normally pay around £15 for a 100 litre bag.

But gougers have been buying up that stock and offering it for sale at stupid prices.

£100 for 100 litres on one site. But £20 for 10 litres on another!

DJI Tello (mini drone) to chase the wood pigeons out of the trees along my driveway and stop them from roosting, crapping all over the cars and my roof.

Saves me having to go out and clear them with the pressure washer every evening.

Are you going to bother getting a license to fly it, I have a mini drone that haven't bothered using yet and not got the required license?

Probably yes. We're not really near anyone but the curtain twitcher brigade will probably be able to see it when it's up at treetop level as some of the trees are approaching 80 ft tall now.

Being a PPL(A) holder it won't look to good being nobbled for flying an unlicensed drone

I've just bought a Vankyo home cinema projector. It cost just over £200 and the quality of the image is really impressive. I'm loving it.

Re: What have you just bought?

Extra strong Sensydine Toothpaste. Paracetamol and a large bottle of Gin. All bought for their pain killing properties ...honest.

Oh and I have mastered the art of tooth gap whistling so John can turn his hearing aids back on.

Care to give a review? I’m looking for a small drone to fly around the garden.

I have a parrot disco which I love but it’s too big to be launching around the garden !!

SWMBO used the dog clipping set on me. She had had enough of me looking like a ‘homeless terrorist’ apparently.
