Hi there folks. Sorry about being away so long but being an express version of The Curmudgeon, when I'm on holiday I do the opposite to the normal yearly grind as most people do so my holidays were naturally extended.

Anyway, onwards .... ha ha.

I don't know why I laughed there as I don't normally do the puns and jokes - no time you see.

I notice that The Curmudgeon has filled the gap a couple of times quickly getting out some short and pithy posts which are quite a change from his excessively rather long and boring entertaining ones.
Unfortunately that old grouch from Nuova Lazio got his (they're probably Shelley's) knickers in a twist and called the posts 'Fill-ins'. What a c... crazy old guy! I think that the relief teaching is getting to him.


What I want to tell you in this post is that the DeLonghi dehumidifier we have is a godsend.

We've had this for well over twenty years and it performs marvelously. The Curmudgeon has mentioned before how older appliances seem to be much better made and more reliable than the modern disposable rubbish. I guess the old adage 'buy quality- buy well' is appropriate for household appliances and the longest lasting ones have always been the more expensive, better brands. Buying cheap is often false economy.

The DeLonghi sucks up moisture like a thirsty man in a desert. It's amazing how much moisture there is in the air especially with this 99% humidity we're having.


  1. I think your misses will be amazed at the electricity bill too.

  2. No. no I think I made a hit with the DeLonghi and other quality appliances we've bought.
