Out and about car hunting yesterday we came across this little gem. 

 

Price is a bit salty though .

 

The whole thing looks a bit salt-encrusted, to be honest....

As far as I understand it, this video is a tribute to the Arab horse. I've had the privilege of riding one or two years ago. They are quite unlike any other - even their ribcages have two fewer ribs than other breeds. Smaller than Thoroughbreds but with considerable power packed into a compact frame. Some people don't like 'em, because of high head and tail carriage and general excitability, but I just like the way they look.

 

Yep, I gathered that from the shitloads of pictures of arab horses!

 

TBH by posting that video I really only wanted to imply that Jon (alcyonecorporation) masturbates over pictures of horses with an arabic music soundtrack, because that makes as much sense as his absurd "hhhhhhhh" does :-D

2 and half months on from the incident that finished the Volvo, I finally have a claim reference number.

 

Even if I do get a pay out, I have no idea what I will do out of the other side.

 

Spoke too soon, current indications seem to show I'm about to be rolled over and fucked (again).

How? Is this one of those situations where it would have been cheaper just to bin the car and not say anything?

Their insurer states that they are claiming their builder left their gate open for the dog to escape, hence not the home owner's fault and if that is found in their opinion to be true, I can go and whistle Dixie for my claim.

 

If it'd have been the Laguna, it'd have been binned and forgotten by now, as it's the Volvo, I don't have the money to replace it and move on.

 

I'm also now into the Audi for just shy of £500 just keeping myself mobile. Farts.

Could you then possibly claim on the builders public liability insurance if that is the case?

I call bollocks to their insurer. It’s up to the other party to claim against the builder, not you. I’d be looking up the number for the insurance ombudsman if I were you.

Is it their home insurance or their pet insurance stating this?

I ask only because a colleague is in a similar situation, but from the other side - her fence blew down in high winds the other week; dog got out; dog got hit by a car; damage to car is apparently to be paid out from her pet insurance which contains a public liability component.

That does smack of B.S. to be honest - otherwise anyone could dodge responsibility by claiming random persons unknown opened the gate etc, therefore NOT MY FAULT PAL, SOZ.

The pet insurance claims the home contents insurance trumps their cover, the home contents are now checking the small print of the pet insurance, but because their insured claim that the builder left the gate open, there is a school of thought that would land it on the builder's insurance, and I might like to involve my insurance company so as to get my car repaired quicker.

I wondered if it might be heading to Brightwells auction house but it isn't showing on their website.  I would quite happily buy a Stanza but it would have to a lot nearer to your new house than your old one.

The homeowner is liable, full stop. It’s the homeowner that’s dicking you about, the insurance companies will sort it out amongst themselves afterwards. Go legal. Go to the CAB, then the small claims court.

A strange day today.
It took me an hour and a half to get out of the yard this morning, first my vehicle was unserviceable, then it's replacement wouldn't start, then after that nobody could unlock the lorry that was parked across the back of mine blocking me in.
On Mondays my job is to drive to all the inaccessible places in a mini bin lorry and pick up garden waste, the rounds are about 120 miles long and cover all sorts of roads right down to dirt tracks.
My replacement vehicle was a full sized bin lorry...
A decision was made to do what was possible, so I spent the whole day putting a quart in a pint pot.
I was enjoying myself so much I did an hour an a half of overtime and didn't even realise until after I had got home.
But the biggest grin of the day was when I got home.
My Nephew came round on his new to him VFR400 like I used to have and he and his father have decided that I should buy his bike and the price is very good, family rates

So I will shortly be back on the road on a Yamaha SRX 600.
And I had chips for tea.
