If it continues I will go knock on his door at some point and do this. Apparently another neighbour has already approached him but maybe if he realises how many people it's affecting he will take this into consideration.

Do it do it do it! Next time he does this with music instead of slowly simmering in rage and desperation, just ask him to stop. If he doesn't we can think out next strategic steps.

( I had this few times with neighbors. I am the same way. I wait and hope that it stops until I am at the limit. But I found out that if I ask them to stop max 10 min after it started to annoy me, I can do it in a much friendlier manner.)

Just have a chat with him. I was the ******* neighbour once, I honestly didn't realise that my music was loud enough to travel down into the flats beneath me. I turned it down as soon as one of my neighbours spoke to me.

Rexx, this always works: get a brown paper bag, put a tomato in it, and set it on fire outside of his door.

Bass is gonna "travel" easier than the rest of the range. Just ask him if he can cut his bass after 10pm or midnight or whatever.

Yeah it's just the bass that's the problem really. Um I don't really know him but when I first moved here when I would see neighbours I'd say hello and introduce myself. His response was a grunt.

He was probably hung over, catch him on the upswing sometime I bet he'll be downright affable.

El D;

They finally talked me into trying those MAGNUM bars (seemed rude to post about it in MYLT's weightloss thread though).



Tried the Raspberry and it was indeed very raspberry-y. We'll see if I ever feel like eating one again though. Next up is the double vanilla.

My mum liked boysenberry ice cream which is indeed very nice but the best ice cream I have ever tasted was homemade mulberry ice cream. I adore mulberries, if I had the choice as a child between mulberries and lollies it would be mulberries everytime.

I had a mullberry tree. It was like an AYCE buffet for squirrels when they were on a break from eating stuff in my garden. ****ing hate squirrels. Cut the tree down last summer. No regrets.

Ate the berries a few times but stopped so I could eat delicious berries instead. If you prefer mullberries over other berries you probably prefer raisins in your cookies over chocolate chips.

OMFG I don't think I've ever felt so enraged by a post! Firstly admitting to the murder of a mulberry tree and then implying I prefer raisins over ANYTHING!! Did you even attempt making a mulberry pie? I think your only defense is lolCanada has vastly inferior mulberries to #1Aussie mulberries. Good day to you sir!

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

Something very odd happened today. No real previous fear of heights at age 49, was at a birthday party and they had one of those climbing walls there. Never done it before, goaded into doing it...anyway, took the easy route, hit the button and the guy says, "just jump straight off the wall..." Couldn't do it. Like literally couldn't do it, had to climb down.

I used to love jumping off cliffs into the sea and do other slightly dangerous things when I was younger. I like to imagine I'm still the adventurous soul I once was but I have a sneeking suspicion my cliff jumping days are over.

We had a huge mulberry tree in our yard when I was growing up. It got to be too big a pita so my dad chopped as many branches off as he could, chopped roots, etc, and left about 5 feet of the trunk for leverage. He had a friend with a big 4x4 truck try to yank it out. Wouldn't budge. A couple hours later that guy showed up with a guy with a semi. He'd met him at the local VFW. Hooked up cables, the whole neighborhood came out to watch. Trunk bent a little, but the cables broke. By the following fall the damm thing had grown half of it's branches back, full of leaves.

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

Not a mulberry tree story, but a tree-cutting-down Keystone Kops-style story:

Friend of mine worked landscaping and his dad had a towering pine tree in his front yard he wanted taken down. Friend enlists my help. I show up and he's climbed up and gotten a rope tied around the middle of the tree. He tells me to hold the rope while he chews up the tree with the chainsaw. When it starts to go, give it a good pull. Sensible creature that I am, I tell him that I don't think that's going to work. First, it's one huge freakin' tree. Second, I don't think the rope's tied up high enough. Third, I ain't no Schwarzenegger.... That tree's gonna fall wherever the **** it wants to fall. He gives me the nah bro, we got this. I shrug -- it's your disco.

He starts hacking as I'm pulling and sure enough the second I feel the tree start to fall I know there's no way it's coming my way. I'm giving it all she's got but soon have to give up lest I get dragged to Timbuktu. Luckily we missed the powerlines, and that car that was coming down the street had enough sense to stop. Could've been a nice disaster.

Re: ***June is a top tier month LC Thread***

Ha! Now I have something new on my list of things I haven't tried yet: mulberries. Have to find out where I can get them in Europe.

edit: and about tree falling technics. Probably due to my upbringing knew the idea even without internet.

I haven't had one either but I know they were at least for a time cultivated in Europe for silk production in the 19th or maybe 18th century. So I assume some mulberry trees are still around.
