    Apparently the driver only had a provisional licence.

    Indeed, and was only 'spoken to'.

    Possibly about the front L plate falling off?

    I've put ceiling fans up in every room in my place (after that hot summer a few years ago.) It is much easier in a bungalow, but @dirtboxin is right, you need to be very exact with the measurements.

    I can also say, with direct experience, you should never decide to give your newly acquired drone a test flight in a room with an active ceiling fan. Even a small one causes considerable disruption. :eek::urgh:

    We had a serious ceiling fan in Cyprus. The blades were pressed from ⅛" steel sheet and the motor was about the size of a domestic bucket. Putting one up was certainly not a one-man job.

    It was extremely controllable, right down to about 10rpm - but, at full speed, it was a fearsome device. If one had ever fallen at that speed, with that amount of stored energy, it would have been a taxing forensic exercise to work out how many people had been in the room at the time.

    Apart from the roof tiles and the nails, the houses were mostly edible, from the point of view of any passing termites - hanging a high-powered bacon slicer from wood that might not be there tomorrow always seemed optimistic to me. A common way of discovering that you had termites was to turn the lights on one night and see them looking back at you from the hole the light switch had fallen into, as the paint was all that had been holding it in place.

    It was also entertaining when the fan would be set precessing, if it was running when one of the frequent tremors occurred.

    As long as you remember not to go into the cellar, sleep wearing a parachute, and you're too bothered by basic toilet facilities, it's an ideal first home. :eek:
