Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Re electric vehicles - Octopus seem to be ahead of he curve - they have a tarriff which charges (boom boom) - only 5p per kWh between 1 and 5 am. Specially for overnight vehicle charging. The cabling might be a trip hazard for Stanley's morning walks though in terraced Barlick. :smile: There will b...

There's two TV programmes, Love Island and Strictly, that I don't watch so no surprise I'd never heard of her :-)

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I'll stick with my 60mpg diesel Yeti for now. £30 a year road tax and I I've just re-insured for the year for £240. It would have been less than that but there's a small charge for paying over 12 months on DD.

Good! Is that the one that runs under the houses to the canal?
It is. The locals were kicking off about the road closures while the works were ongoing, small price to pay I think.

Re: Seen in the News

Exactly! I saw the news and it reminded me of a conversation I had once with a man who was an executive on the high speed line to the channel tunnel and if you remember we got the French in to do a design and build because of their experience with TGV. He said that all along the policy was to play ...

I have the same, I believe I have identified the source. The mastic seal around the upstairs window above is failing and the rain is being dr...

The variation in price for an Aqualisa Quartz shower 'engine'. There are no user serviceable parts inside the electric shower and one of the heater elements is on the way out so you have to replace the interior module. I finally tracked one down for £97, with a £10 next day delivery. Some places wer...

The things on the floor could be square links I suppose so making chains for ships or other very heavy duties?
The crucible holder thingy could be for carrying big rivets so are they the gang that closes the rivets?
I reckon you're on it with the chain making :-)

You cant do a deposit via a phone. :sad:
The Barclays app will let you pay in a cheque (there is a limit on the amount). You take a photo of the cheque, using you phone's camera, from the app. I've only used it once as I don't get many cheques.
