From toilet fluids to TV to black streaks remover.

I see the ubiquitous satellite system is on sale again, anyone ever used it or similar? The rechargeable dehumidifiers are on our hit list   rolleyes

The little dehumidifiers are quite good so long as you don't expect too much from them. Fine for a small area where air circulation can be restricted, we keep one in each underbed storage area, they get a recharge whenever we remember to do it.
I'd also like the hear from anyone who has used the satellite system, I do seem to see quite a few on ebay several months after the Aldi offer...

I did have one of those satellite systems a LONG time ago. They have probably improved since then but mine did work - sometimes.

The biggest problem was getting a clear line to the satellite. By putting the dish on the floor you introduce a lot more trees than you would if you could stick it on a pole. Also, back then there weren't too many other dishes to look at to copy their orientation. Compasses always point at me so using one didn't help much. When I did get it pointing correctly the picture was fine but most of the FTA channels were German. We only used it to watch sport so a little bit of German commentary was perfect for our viewing habits.

One further problem with the older system was you couldn't add a viewing card so even if you had a Sky subscription you still couldn't watch it. I'm guessing they have moved on a lot since mine but I'm not in a hurry to use one again.

 I did buy one but it was in 2009 it worked OK but it could only pick up German Channels.
When I took it back they just refunded me and put it with the pile of them against the counter
Did not buy another hugegrins

Ever heard the phase "if you're not fast, you're last"  Whistle1 Got to Aldi about 10am and it was all gone bar the EHU, some rubber flooring and toilet fluids. Who knew there were so many caravanners out there  biggrin

Went to our local at about 11.30, still had everything in stock, even the TV's, solar panels, toilet fluids, low wattage kettle, ehu's. All we wanted was some green fluid.

Never had a problem with taking dogs abroad, very easy, just have to pay euro tunnel and the French vet for the pleasure.

Mind you they have stopped us going to Aruba enjoying the Windsurfing and very warm water, still cannot have every thing.

1030, everything in stock. The main target was the dehumidifiers but also got a collapsible bucket and colander as future replacements for the (much more expensive) existing units.

TVs, Sat systems and dehumidifiers were all gone, and that was at two branches. As delivery is free within 3/5 days, I just ordered the dehumidifiers on line smile!

I know it is easy these days, but I have no wish to subject my dogs to hours and hours of travelling, then it is too warm for them when we get there, spent decades touring the continent, done that got the t shirt, now want to enjoy this country and Ireland, lots of places I haven`t been to, also heard too many reports of dogs being  very ill and even dying from ticks picked up amongst other things, vet in Kent told us that as she saw the devastation from owners, who had come back from France.

 With dogs in tow you are limited to where you can go and also see sights, exhibitions etc.

Yes I love France, but love my dog even more, I am very happy to stay here. Usually it is just me and my dog these days.  doggy
