Wouldn't it have been possible to get them to do it then, while the equipme=

Fair enough

Of course. I wasn't intending to imply that the steeple keeping at your tow=
er was poor, merely that of late I've come across a number of cases where b=
ellhangers are being blamed for things which really aren't their fault, suc=
h as in the case cited in my first email, and I was generalising, as I thou=
gh my email made clear. It merely seemed to me from the comment on Dickon's=
site that Taylor's by implication were being blamed for things beyond thei=
r control. There was no need to insult me! Anyway, no offence taken and I h=
ope none taken by you - no offence was meant!
