    Newbie but oldie

    Hi all

    My name is Ian I am 61 but feel 35 and live in Cyprus. Only recently got a house with a pool 18 months. I had a contractor looking after my pool but decided to try it myself, as I am always on site.
    Gets a bit of getting used to must remember not to get too anorak about the results.

    But its 11 am here time for a pimms as this typing is tiring.

    1 Kw motor 15 cu m per min Sand filter
    I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel but it was just some PERSON with a torch walking toward me.
    I started out in life with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    Welcome aboard TFP

    You peaked my curiosity which Pimm is it?

    Pimm is mass-produced and bottled it along with Pimmís 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6: whiskey, brandy, rum, rye, and vodka, respectively

    Hi ktc211

    Its Pimms number 1 which is a gin based. The only reason we drink this we cannot get the others. That is not the only reason we drink it we also like it because its alcohol and it looks cool in a pitcher with ice fruit and lemonade. My neighbor thins it is a soft drink and cannot understand why she gets sleepy.lol
    Why can I only get the Smilies on edit and not post???????
