but work is now suspended until Kowalski (the roofer) has the pins removed from his femur.



I'm really afraid to ask.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

I don't know why, apparently he was on his way to college to pick up his IOSH Diploma when some idiot knocked him off his moped. :roll:

They are very cheap, their work is excellent and i'm assured that they are usually reliable.


That structure is why they are cheap, a Brittish firm would not dare to errect it I think a building inspector would condem it out of hand. :shock:  :shock:

I was thinking of using this budget scaffold as a whisteria support but i'm not sure it would take the weight.

Hang on Kowalski and Wiśniewski are cousins  and British born and bred,  their grandfather was a spitfire pilot during WW2 prior to that he worked in the circus.

A lot of Polish people came over here in the war and many gave their lives as well. Worth thinking on.

I worked with 2 Poles when I started out. One British born, one a wartime immigrant.

Was it the Battle of Britain film that had the Polish squadron in ?

Yes, the training squadron that went into battle against the poor wingco's orders. It's the bit when he realises they've all gone off to attack the Nazis and says "Oh Hell!"

Hilarious. I could watch that film every Sunday afternoon.

I used to love listening to the Polish engineer at work on the phone to his brother. It was just absolute rubbish he spoke. All w's and s's. With the odd English word thrown in. Brilliant engineer.

Our neighbour was Polish chap. He was going a bit senile but would tell us of his childhood, stealing food from dead bodies to survive. Heartbreaking.

Mind you, when I go through the town centre and they're all chatting in those Eastern European languages I feel like I'm James Bond on a mission in Russia. Oh, OK - more George Smiley than 007

We are supposedly 25% Eastern European here but I have serious doubts.

It does make it seem slightly more cosmopolitan. And they're the only ones with some money to spend. It is nice not to have to listen to mundane conversations when you can pretend they're speaking about something more exotic than the weather.  :)
