Neighbourhood watch. And clogs.

Update on the neighbour situation from the other day. It seems that everyone is now in agreement on the way forward, so we hope that a quick trip to the pub for beer and curry tonight will patch up any slightly damaged bridges. Which is a good thing.
As for the Dutch guy problem (or Dutch problem guy), he seems to have gone very quiet indeed. And I’m not too worried by that. I think that problem will go away. In fact, in many ways, his ejection of playthings from his perambulator has left me free to make vastly superior new arrangements concerning a couple of products, much to my satisfaction.

Plumbing the depths

I’ve just had a spam email advertising The email contains this image:
girl, plumbing
Now, I’m a very happily married man, so I have to be careful with what I say here. However, it is my reckoning that there are a lot of single blokes who wouldn’t mind if an engineer like the one illustrated was to visit their home and, um, sort out their plumbing, as it were. The question is, are you more likely to click on an image like the one shown in the email in order to get to their site, or on an image like the ones used once you reach that site (example below)?
