ish logo

Post: # 185672Post brett53 »

may have been asked before but do the guys who run the main site ( or have they ever thought of ) have available vinyl stickers with the ish logo on ?? - what a great way to proclaim your ishness - and may bring more ishers in ?? - any ways justa thought ( look good on my scoot would a few of them )

certainly self sufficiency does cause interest , as i nipped over to my local diy store today to get some fence wire to ( try ) and dissuade my new pussy from jumping into next doors garden - and half a dozen people stopped and commented on my latest trailer - i think they where also surprised to see me strapping a bundle of 2x1 to the scoot as well ( for supports ) - but like i said to them - needs must :wink:

plod on patrol eyed me up as usual - but obviously had better things to do - so left me be ( mind they are used to me round here ) - and that trip saved me at least 8 quid in taxi fares - ( or more if i wanted to visit the local B&Q :angryfire: ) WHY is it that these places are always miles out of town - and not a thought given to HOW exactly disabled people who don't drive are supposed to use them - you cant take paint on the bus round here ( health and stupidity rules again ) - certainly if i wanted to buy map gas for my blowlamp i would probably have to go by scooter to get it as even some of the taxi firms i hear are tetchy about carrying inflamables ( probably get reported for being a potential terrorist :roll: )

and unless one is prepared to pay hefty delivery charges - getting things like 8x4 sheets of anything back is virtually impossible - i eyed up the double glazed window i want whilst there and may have to splash out on a taxi to bring THAT back some time - or make sure the tires on the "other ' trailer are well inflated

pity i cant still drive - as i could see an opportunity for a " ring and ride guy " with a flat bed transit - there must be others in my situation that need things "today " NOT when these firms get round to it ( and of course cant help you in with stuff ( h & s AGAIN - as they may hurt their backs ) - just like our bin men - wont lift anything heavy - ye gods the old time bin men who used to throw a full bin of ashes on their backs and carry them some distance before emptying them into a "manual " truck must be laughing in their graves at the pussies we have today doing the job - all they have to do is wheel a bin and let a machine do the hard work

oops sorry gone off on about 4 tangents here :oops:

i need to lie down in a darkend room ......................... :lol: :lol:

Hmmmmm - how eco-friendly is vinyl? Perhaps an embroidered patch?
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

As we all know the reason why they are out of town is that land was cheaper to build these places on back in the 80's and everyone even us spaks had cars to get there and back. Those who didn;t drive then still had means to get there with friends etc but take the car out of the equation and the whole system starts to fall down.

As you say where there's a will theres a way.

ain't going to stick very well is an embroidered patch - and you could probably get 100 stickers for the cost of 1 patch - sometimes one has to make small sacrifices to being Eco friendly :wink:
