Very dangerous. Accident, you fall and they may try to fix your head rotating it to the right position.

It's pretty common in south east asia.

Too hot to zip up but wind breaking still needed.

Most local cyclists don't have their heads screwed on too tightly in the first place so I doubt it would matter much. :lol:

Where the thing lets up to let water out, the sealant was (poorly) applied around the pipe.

Our water pressure is great, the showers in particular.

Find out which department/ person in your company places a call to this agent and hound them for a response instead. Go to the source of the money!

The two largest areas of corruption in the MNC's occur in the HR department and consist of kick backs to the HR manager from car leasing companies and rental agents in my experience, this means you are getting substandard service. Just ask Psoniah LaWhoreOh (name slightly altered but phonetically correct). She was a french HR trollop run off from W for accepting gift cards from a rental agency for allowing them to send substandard vehicles to W instead of new ones.

Jabbing lasted us three months. I know husband has fixed thus kind of thing before. We really do prefer, when practical, to do the work ourselves than be stuck in with workmen.


How's yr monkey hunt coming along?
