Do you have to pay a government type tax for this or is it a private sort of company that does the cleaning duties...?
My last boss (he's from US too) went to jail for a while here for "accidentally" bumping over a jobsworth traffic numpty that stood in front of his car to give out a parking ticket. Must be a tough job the world over...
In garden news my jokes some weeks ago about making a sort of "Peckham Spring" for the pond have been realised but alas it's about forty feet away from where it should be. A hole dug for one of the fenceposts yesterday (now popping them up one a day) was full of water, and this was before the rain.
On scooping it all out the water just gradually came back. Hole's too far from the house for water-main pipe and only about eighteen inches down. No-one knows why just this one hole is waterlogged, none of the others were like this. Anyway a concrete post went in and a bag of cement stuff went on top, saved me having to put the water in... we shall see what the next post hole reveals.
It's all excitement here... maybe I do have a well out there. I shall be self sufficient after all... hurrah.
