rant over sorry
If you ask for help people will offer it, some may not know as much as you, but if I ask for help I take all advice and filter the bits I need...No point in re-inventing the wheel, tricks of the trade and shortcuts from people who have done it before are always welcome to me...I've rebuilt scrap bikes but never built a trike, or bike from scratch...I'm just very pleased that there are people out there willing to try to help....John

Sometimes a different view point can come up with some amazing ideas.

I knew my department inside out at my old job, but someone (knowing nothing about its operation) would sugguest something and I would say "I'll look in to it!". 1 in 10 its a good idea...

I got the impression that you were ranting because people who don't know what they are talking about offer bad advice....we all do that at times...but we are only trying to help...and it is down to the reader to decide if it is any help...sometimes a bit of bad advice will prompt someone like you to correct it and then it has served a purpose.....so all advice can be helpfull...is that what your post was about... John

Sounds like someone asked you for advice and ignored what you said and thought they knew it all. Same as when your working on your bike and some twat comes over and gives you advice cos he rode his mates fizzie round a field 20 yrs ago and thinks it means he knows something

Thumbs up eggs

stick yer egg (not straight from the fridge) into boiling water - boil 1 minute -turn of heat - leave 6 minutes for runny yolk, 7 minutes for harder yolk. (delia smith's egg cooking book thingy).

I dont give advice about bikes, but eggs......

Eggs are best fried with sunny side up and placed delicately upon 4 rashers of bacon between 2 lumps of freshly baked bread and topped with brown sauce and mushrooms.

Ok you all win...
Break three eggs into a measuring jug, add a small drop of milk or water to thin, whisk for a minute and strain through a large flour strainer to leave all the guts and slime in the strainer..then cook the eggs in a saucepan with a knob of Welsh butter until fluffy. serve with hot buttered toast..

I can cook too, it means I don't have to wash up...

Can boil a perfect egg, stick in water - bring to boil - wait a bit.. done!

Never use a watch it tells lies...
