    The trouble with life is there's no background music.

    if you have bastard neighbours that keep you awake "on the piss" and cranking music till 3am then 6 am is a good time on sun morn to mow. Also when you get to the shortest distance from their bedroom windows, leave the mower running, go have a shower, get some breakky, floss your teeth etc then come back at 7am to put more fuel in so you can leave it running while you go to church. I may or may not have bastard neighbours that keep me up..........

    well done. Mine have gone from about 1 bender a fortnight to 1 every 4 months. The latest we get it now is about 11pm. Persistance and a crap mower is the key....
