    Is it some strange new design of vacuum cleaner? Possibly from the fevered mind of a certain James Dyson?

    Very pretty, but as an old rocker I prefer to see what's throbbing between my knees :Wink:

    not completely sure, but judging by picutre two, I think its a radio type thing that you have somehow developed in to a Hose pipe stand?
    Your a genious my firend, absoloute genious.

    However, I believe the ban in most places has actually been lifted meaning that your design may now be defunkt untill the next hosepipe ban.

    Good effort though :thumb:
