Valet Tip.

I'm sure that many of you have also worked this little tip out yourselves, I came up with it a few years ago, but having just given our Shogun a very full valet prior to selling, it never fails to impress me.

It involves a short length of hosepipe and a clump of masking tape. Chop off about 18" of hosepipe, wind around enough masking tape about to form a clump big enough to plug the end of your Hoover/wetvax, about 4" from one end of the hosepipe. Shove the short end in the Hoover, wriggle the clump of tape to form a seal and off you go. It'll get into all those awkward crannies and concentrate the suck.

I reckon you could use that to save someone's life if they are choking to death - seriously it's been done before - if someone is going to die anyway what do you have to lose???

Hmmm,

If I was going to die anyway I'm not sure I would want to spend my final moments having a hose pipe rammed down my throat by Codprawn.

in the 1960s, me old man worked for the r.a.c breakdown service and he came across a crashed car on a moorland road ,a local doctor was in attendence and he said he could have done with some oxygen ,so me old man disconected the oxy /acetlene pipe on the welding kit in the back of the landrover he was driving and held that to the injured mans mouth whilst the ambulance came ,dont think the acetalene would have done him much good though lol.

Any chance of changing your user name to Anthea? Grow your hair long again and I'll re-consider!
