    That's amazing - how many people must have looked at that before it was put up.

    On the other hand - is it the latest advertising ploy. Lots of free viral marketing.

    good one! :D
    I actually have one - a "7 fucntion gun" from B&Q - albeit mine's yellow and red and part metal. hosing the doggy is so much more fun when you have the choice of drizzle, mist, stream, shower, bubbles enriched, ... :smashin:

    I think for the best results from the shower head you need and aperture of at least F1.5:D

    Oh and an exposure of 5 seconds in bursts.

    Hello,

    This sign outside my old school made me smile. The kids around here aren't particularly bright.
