Re: Nagging for installation of the same thing every day.

Re: The joys of living in Rural Areas

Where I live just 35 miles from the centre of London I have no cell phone signal, (so I never bought a smart phone,) power cuts are frequent, (so I have a UPS for computer and router,) and the water supply fails every year, but at least I don't need to pee in the garden.
