Last time I heard costings of those automated toilets... the installation alone was 40 - 50K not including maintenance, electricity and vandalism cleanup.

I'm pretty happy with no toilets there... can just imagine the sort of issues that would attract in an outer suburban estate with absolutely no entertainment options for teenagers and…

Saturday saw a very determined effort to make progress on the front garden which had been full of weeds and hiding some very determined mice and about 6 rather large…

Interestingly enough one of the arguments put forward for not allowing people to have front fences is the concept of "passive security". You're actually far more likely to get…
