    When running a shop, it's important to keep concise, and professional, notes, in order to avoid any unnecessary reordering mistakes.

    I don't know about Gasehound, but for me it was the glamour and the endless supply of women and drugs.

    How my life has changed in the past few years!'
    We've just published the first of 4 programs on YouTube (Sunday 6pm), featuring local cyclists (myself included week 4)
    Its amazing the response we've had at the local level, a great piece of marketing. Given the internet never existed when I started my journey as a cobbler, it still seems bizarre to me the growth I've achieved in the last 4 years by doing bike repairs during a quiet period. I'm now flat out morning noon & night! & bikes account for the majority of my turnover through the Spring/Summer & early Autumn period.
    Anyway we brought a load of lights (We, being my Son & I) a fancy camera & a macbook & a few thousand pound later we put this together!

    Nearly happened to me twice today. 
    The first I cut a key for a customer, it was for the customer's brother, who apparently is a "c*nt" ( customer's words), customer paid by card. On the card receipt I would normally initial it with a " k", instead I wrote the word "c*nt" on it.
    The second a well endowed woman came in, and said
    " I've got...." And started to root around in her handbag, I very nearly replied, " a cracking pair of funbags!"

    Just wanted to say thank you to Valerie at Forest Cobbler for helping me out recently.
    and what makes it even better that rather than excepting any payment for her work she just asked for a donation to the Jimmy Mizden foundation.
    You are a star V,  thank you very much
    (donation all done)

    I believe Mitutoyo are a good brand but personally I use Aldi style, less than £10 ones as they are accurate enough for my purposes.

    Just want to says thanks to every one assisting me with this key.
    I managed to find the problem and now all 3 keys work perfect. 
    The problem was the side cuts of  my blanks was not as deep and wide as the original key.
    They were too small to notice with eye sight , but when put it in my lancer machine it did take a bit more off and all worked OK afterwords. 
    once more thanks for your time guys.
