    And people ask me why I left the UK

    More PC correctness, Oh please save us from these idiots . My Daughter will be starting her University place, with a view to teaching this year. Think she would rather be called Miss than some choice words used, that is said these day against teachers by their students. Its got nothing to do with anything but politeness, which is not a bad thing to re-enforce in children. Billy-Sonic Haggis Flickr-Fun

    Problems with sleep?

    Take up urban exploring. Do some hairy sites' where you play cat and mouse and or get chased by security or Police. Then if ........ and it is a .....if you make it back to the car. After the adrenaline rush, you then have to drive home. Christ all you want to do is sleep Billy-Sonic Haggis Flickr-Fun

    Detroit Photo Tours?

    One of the locals I contacted said that there have been some photographers that were victims of those gangs, with their gear stolen and some minor injuries while shooting the Packard Plant. Personal security is a significant concern for these shoots and has been on the other Texas urban exploration photoshoots I've been on, it is something that the other photographers in my group and I take very seriously. We also take serious steps to provide protection for each other. Regardless, thank you for all the feedback, having made contact with some of the suggested people from the thread I've learned that basically there is no legal access since the property owners really don't care unless they're going to make significant money from a commercial shoot. There aren't any people or organizations providing a fixer service or organizing anything like this, which is too bad since I think that could be a serious side-gig for a local pro-photographer. Well, I guess I'll get back to focusing on access to the Baker Hotel before it gets redeveloped. well here was my last place a power plant that only closed April, to be changed from Coal to gas but they had already ripped out most of the turbines Turbine Hall During Dark https://fastfall123.trovebox.com/p/eho/token-6ca1f55576 Daytime https://fastfall123.trovebox.com/p/em8/token-6a07bb9806 control room still connected https://fastfall123.trovebox.com/p/eid/token-fb1d123a8c pipe dreams https://fastfall123.trovebox.com/p/erj/album-4u Conveyor feed into the plant https://fastfall123.trovebox.com/p/eng/album-4u Billy-Sonic Haggis Flickr-Fun

    OMFG water bill

    Not a problem we have in Scotland but surely it would be better to fix it ?. I had one where a Seal went i just popped out got a replacement unit drained it fixed it !. Same this week with the irritating bloody washing machine door. Door lock sticking (age), so ordered the spare paid about $20. Got it by post 3 days later fitted in 30 mins Including Tea break job done. Now works every time, first time. Saved about $400+ for a new machine same level Billy-Sonic Haggis Flickr-Fun
  14. See as i say each person deals with it differently. I don't even think of them subconsciously as far as i am aware. I don't feel the need for them regardless of the situation, its just not a part of my life anymore. For which i am grateful but as i say smokers nearby doesn't bother me. just deal with it the best you can
  15. I hit other to be honest. Me I didn't consider myself a non smoker till the feeling of need/ addiction or requirement had left me. Every one is different and how they handle it will be too. Its been over 8 years and since quitting, i have never experienced any craving or need for them. Regardless of the situation, I just don't need them anymore. For some people their triggers are drinking getting up or stress, every ones case is individual. I am not a rabid ex smoker, people smoking doesn't bother me and I don't foam at the mouth. If they do its just something not important for me to think about anymore. Its all psychological Billy-Sonic Haggis Flickr-Fun
