Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

You'll have a nice day for it Wendy.... Shades of Hannah Hauxwell. I looked her up to make sure I had the name right and realised she had died in February last year..... So perhaps she is a bad example!

Re: Shed Matters 3

I went in she shed and gave the jigsaw some thought. The more I looked the more I realised that I don't have the knowledge to repair it. I had ideas of simply by-passing the variable speed unit but coulkdn't make sense of the wiring so I simply put it back together and returned it to the cupboard in...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

Long ago, if you had a leak in the cooling system the cure was to crack a couple of eggs into the water or add a tin of Coleman's Mustard, more often than not this would stop the leak. Later there was a specialised product called 'Rad weld'. Made by Holts and I see it is still available.

Exactly Cathy. I remember Janet asking Big Harry to pass her cardigan over as she was chilled and Harry said to me "she's acclimatised now", it was 25C.

I fear you are right Tiz. Farage has pressed the delete button at just the right time. That was the only political news over the weekend. Give the man his due, his timing and strategy are perfect. Compare with Parliament timing, the biggest crisis since 1939 and they have gone off for a holiday. You...

Low Moor has another connection with almost all the engines in Barlick. If the old engine makers needed something stronger than wrought or cast iron they always specified Low Moor Iron which was superior stuff.

You don't immediately get a cold if you go out without a coat on on a warm day! I have to remind myself of this every year when we have our first warm day. I think yesterday was our warmest day this year, we reached the dizzy heights of 20C! A bit of a joke for our Australian friends.....
