    Here in the 'sunny Algarve' I might welcome the sound of a lawn mower.
    Following a very wet and windy Easter holiday I can only hear the roll of thunder, I expect the lightening will be crashing around quite soon.

    Think yourself lucky! We have a regular idiot who flies his little aeroplane in the sky above our house. Fair enough if he flew past, but no - he does stunts all day right above our house. Accelerate upwards, loop the loop, drop down to a couple of hundred feet and then accelerate full bore up to repeat his "clever" trick.
    And that goes on for hours at a time every day when the sun shines and the wind isn't too bad from the start of April until the end of September......

    The bonfire will stop the stunt pilot Mark !
    I used to live at the bottom of the runway at Brize Norton where they tested Concorde and did
    circuit and bumps all day every day. (Touch down, take off and go round to do it again and again)
    That rattled me and my windows.

    ....and I thought that the phrase was "grumpy old men". Embrace the sounds of summer. Life could be a lot worse...it could rain throughout the season!

    Depends on which paper you have. My 14 across was 'centavo', but I'm stuck on 2 down - tall Tasmanian conifer!

    That would not stop my neighbour using his pressure washer, which has the most aggravating whine - and you can still hear it with the doors and windows shut!

    Just how many time a month do you need to clean your patio?

    OK, here it's still too cold to have lawnmowers out, although I feel your pain, Pam!!

    Thomasin - not Norfolk Island Pine, is it?!

    One of the few joys I experience in being profoundly deaf, is to tun off my hearing aid and listen to what I want. I have an older model cassette player with head-phones.

    2 advantages:
    1] I hear the music I want without disturbing others
    and, most importantly,
    2] S.W.M.B.O and my neighnours cannot interupt my tranquil moments.
