    We also got cash back with the mortgage but it wasn't anything too significant. Helped cover some costs.

    Now however money is going out. Work has started on the house. We've bought some things. Then there will be more work and more things to buy. LOL! Never ending...
    It is back breaking sometimes, it is frustrating sometimes and very rarely it is fun. I am not a fan of plumbing issues. Built a deck, poured a concrete slab, brought about 30 tons of rock from the forest to landscape, cut down 16 diseased Aspen trees, ripped out the lawn, backfilled about 6000 square feet with 4 dump trucks worth of dirt, hauled about 100 railroad ties to make planting beds, planted too many shrubs/trees, replaced the dishwasher, built new closets, fixed the water softener plumbing, replaced all toilet and sink piping and fixtures, put in a new kitchen sink. These are the things I can remember between 2001 November and 2005 December. There were other little odds and ends as well....oh the joys or horrors of homeownership!

    I know there are a bunch of Android users on this thread. Some like MIA are waiting for Marshmallow.
    The reason I like Nexus devices is updates OTA that come fast...just got 6.0.1 on my N5.

    That sounds like a lot of work...

    In the next seven weeks are schedule is:

    - Removal of all carpets (most are done just have one more)
    - Remove old kitchen (half done)
    - Plaster main bedroom
    - Paint main bedroom
    - Remove old bathroom fittings
    - Remodel bathroom (building half wall, wall plastering, painting, tiling and new fittings)
    - Second bedroom - filling cracks, new window and painting
    - Install new carpet upstairs in bedrooms and hallway
    - Move gas meter, electrical meter and breaker box (they call it a consumer unit here). Unfortunately we can't move these outside so a cover will be constructed to look like a window seat
    - Remove chair rails, wallpaper
    - Fill cracks and paint (some plastering will need to be done as well)
    - Fill opening in wall between old kitchen and new kitchen
    - Install new bathroom downstairs and utility area
    - Install new kitchen
    - Install new flooring

    After all that...
    - Tidy up garden (half done)
    - Paint exterior of garage
    - Paint interior of garage

    That's just a general guide of things. There's more to it than what I posted but you get the idea. :P

    It probably won't all be done in the time scale we want due to the utility companies and the holidays but we're hoping to get the main aspects done so we can move in.

    Nothing like a renovation project to keep you up at night. :P

    Does everything get promoted really early in the UK? Here in the US, I saw Christmas items in stores before Halloween. When I was a kid, that didn't happen until the day after Thanksgiving.

    Yeah Xmas starts earlier every year it seems. I sometimes wonder why they just don't make up another holiday mid year and have more than one celebration where you give useless pointless gifts to make you feel better about yourself...

    A sister took a photo of her brother outside their house and edited it with Camera360. Posted on social networks and what happend then is a typical stupid media reaction, no thinking, no checking information, just trying to be the first to deliver idiotic news. On the picture was a 'NLO' flying behind her brother. To make the thing even worse they mislead their parents and made them believe that there actually was an NLO above their house, and they even spoke confidendtaly about it once the reporters came and interviewed them.

    I just can't believe how some people can be so stupid.

    I was going to comment but I got really busy. Also I wasn't aware of the term NLO.... We usually use UFO for Unidentified Flying Object.

    I don't believe we've ever been visited by aliens and I highly doubt we ever will. The universe is a big place and we're pretty much a backwater.

    Do I think there is other life in the universe? Yes of course. Do I think there is other 'intelligent' life on other planets? Highly probable. Do I think they look like humans? Not sure. Do I think there's technological societies out there who have managed to manipulate physics so they can travel vast distances quickly. That's something I can't answer but I think it's unlikely.

    If aliens were ever to visit, it would be a moving colony living in space more than them just being curious and capturing 'red necks' in small towns and doing experiments on them. They would likely be looking for resources. Going by what we're doing to this planet they'd probably bypass it.

    That's my two cents on the whole UFO thing and our weird obsession with them.

    I wanted to write UFO but i got confused and wrote Bosnian term, lol.

    To be honest i don't really believe that there are inteligent life forms out there, maybe some micro organisams or stuff like that, but most surely not what Sci Fi is showing us.

    So am i, but it won't make it way to Bosnian cinemas for some time. Maybe sometimes after 20. December, i'm not sure. I have to check, i've never been so hyped about any movie so far.

    Considering the size of universe and the fact we only just started counting the planets, I think the idea of other intelligent life is likely. What that other life looks like is a different story. I'm not thinking Star Trek here.

    I'm also talking universe not solar system. If there is life in our solar system it's likely to be like you suggested.

    Whole other planets which can support life on the other hand, that can lead to all kinds of things. Keeping in mind that life may have started 4 billion of years ago on this planet but it was microscopic for a very large portion of that time. There are other parts of the universe which are much older than our planet so that's why I think the way I do.

    I know I saw V and VI in the theatre. I don't recall seeing IV in there. I would have been 6 at the time of release of IV.

    It's hard to remember that far back sometimes.

    Well i'm not saying you're wrong. Sure there are possiblities considering the size of the universe as you said.

    But it's just impossible to proove that there is or isn't life outside our solar system (i think they found something on Mars, not sure). It's same like trying to proove that there isn't a God, or that there is, don't get me wrong here. It's just a matter of your beliefs and your point of view.

    Until they show us some serious evidence, i'm just not buying it.

    And those UFO hunters and conspiracy theorist about aliens and stuff are seriously going on my nerves. *cough* History Channel

    Water is abundant in the universe and is easily found. That's already a positive towards life being abundant rather than no life.

    But it's just impossible to prove that there is or isn't life outside our solar system (i think they found something on Mars, not sure). It's same like trying to prove that there isn't a God, or that there is, don't get me wrong here. It's just a matter of your beliefs and your point of view.
    Beliefs are just that. Beliefs. Evidence is all we have and to most that's not enough because we have subjective thinking. To me there's enough evidence to conclude there's no supernatural realm, whatever your beliefs may be, but many 'feel' otherwise and to convince them is difficult. Even when people have a more rational mind, it's not always easy to let go of those ideas.

    Until they show us some serious evidence, i'm just not buying it.
    Evidence will be hard to come by. Even if they ever get it the question will always be, who will believe it.

    seriously going on my nerves. *cough* History Channel
    That and ghost hunting shows, supernatural nonsense stuff, psychics, Oprah, etc... all get on my nerves.
