    We got hit with this way back mid 70's in the King Country - Dad put it down to creek water as it was a summer like this one and creeks were not running and had still stale water holes.
    Best option - SPREAD them out
    Set stock - as my old man would say "a sheep worst enemy is another sheep)

    Good luck with that - when was the last outbreak in your area ??

    It is the same one as on here by the photos and similar seller handle.

    These idiots, must have driven down to the port in a vehicle powered by love and fairy farts, right up there with extremist vegans etc. Throw them to the sharks, all of them.

    Today I hate VODAFONE. Letter arrives "You're getting an upgrade" on the front. Spark are closing the PSTN network so we are upgrading you to calling over your broadband.
    Just plug your phone into the "phone in on your router using this free adapter" they say. Oh and if you have a monitored alarm, medical alarm etc then these will no longer work by the way so you will need to contact your providers to get a solution!!


    Well vodafone my router is in the bloody roof an the phone is not so I have now had to pull a new cable up the wall and across to the router thru all the spiders and with a prayer it would not get stuck going up the wall. I'm lucky in that I can do it myself

    How in the hell is this an Upgrade?? This after upgrading me to VDSL and the ditching my email addy. Only reason I stay is that changing is too painful
    I know some will say ditch the home phone but I actually prefer it.

    The great thing is civil emergencies when there is a power outage. They don't want you calling on a cellphone, because that system is useless, and the modem won't work unless you can power it, which most people can't.

    Much easier for "them" to control us "the great unwashed" when we can't communicate with each other I guess

    They make it your problem rather than theirs. Classic corporate sidestep.

    I reckon the supply boat should leave port full noise into some big waves, that should sort them out.
