  1. Occasionally when doing a fob, the first one is rejected. I then get a fresh fob , repeat the process and generally things are OK . To play it safe, I've been binning these first rejected fobs, but should I. Would these fobs be OK for rewriting? Sorry if this is the wrong section, seeing it more as under a keycutting "umbrella" thread

    I cut myself on my several five star Google reviews. Lol.

    Best Supplier for Laces

    I use dasco brand, because I like the packaging best. A few lines of bama, and some brightly colour laces ( that sell quite well) from shoestring to "excite" what can be a drab black and brown dominated boring display. Predominately from Birch or Leather and grindery.

    Eldest of to uni.

    Felt there would be posts about how dangerous cows are. Virtually any animal weighing half a ton can kill. I would still class a cow as a fairly placid, non aggressive animal. Certainly not going to freak out my eldest by saying they kill three people a year, although I actually think her main concern is them attacking her in her flat!

    rolex damaged

    I don't repair Rolexs, I redirect customers to "Piccadilly Watch Repairs" at Piccadilly circus. They seem to specialize on the high end brands. Or you could check the British horology website, BHI.org.uk. That should give you details if a top quality repairer nearer you. If the casing is damaged, it probably will have to go to Rolex. No matter where it goes, it's not going to be a cheap repair, I'm afraid.
  7. Our eldest is off to uni next week. She is such a city girl, her main concern is a field of cows near her digs. " Dad, are those cows dangerous? " " no, not really, they are freisians, fairly placid. The bulls can be dangerous, as it's a dairy breed. So the farmer will probably run them with a placid beef bull, like a Hereford or Charolais ." "THERE ARE DIFFERENT BREEDS OF COW!?"

    Interesting read about UAP

    Good luck to them, but I can't help thinking, me spending £120 with them every six months must have really helped.

    Wallet sales

    Watch repairs and keys drive my business, accounting for at least 80% of trade. But I always find my self dwelling on (virtually) insignificant parts of my business, like wallets, padlocks and polish.

    Do I guess it's just me that can't sell wallets for s**t then. Damn.

    Wallet sales

    Just realised I haven't sold one wallet this year. Never been a brilliant seller in my shop, but would expect to have sold 5/6 by now. Have they dropped in other shops, or is it just mine. Is this due to the increasingly cashless society. I have had enquires for credit card holders , but not getting them until I can get RFID ones.

    No, no , no

    Customer today, starts with, "I've got a vintage Rolex!" I'm thinking no thank you . " I bought a glass for it on line and researched it in youtube." I'm thinking God, no! " I've removed the bezel, but now I need you to fit my glass." GOD , NO! but politely just turned it down, and sent him to a Rolex agent.

    England and wales voted out as a majority, Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to stay in as a majority. I would just add I am surprised that a fairly slim 52/48% majority vote, is leading to a break from the EU. I'd thought they would have wanted a much clearer mandate to do it.
