Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Indeed he did. Smart motorways, apparently, according to official figures from the Department of Transport in a soon to be released report. It takes an average of 17 minutes to update the overhead displays to turn off any of the live lanes! Some folk not surprisingly have died. :sad: There are only ...

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

No, a long way from that. I used to be able to do the same walk in 1.45 or thereabouts. I always used to reckon it was 40 minutes to the trig from our house. The deficit from my surgery ensures that I have to rest a lot more frequently as it's exceptionally tiring thinking about every step with my r...

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Lovely crisp morning out there! The met office forecasts that the pressure could top 1050mb later today. A very high value. The highest recorded in Britain was 1054.7mb (31.15 in), in Aberdeen on 31 January 1902. They say we could beat that perhaps. 1035mb is the magic number for potential enhanced...

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

Lovely morning so a good day for a walk. We had to do a bit of tidying up at the centre this morning so we had a bit of lunch then togged up for our walk. Pretty cold outside so base layer, light fleece, windproof and gilet, beanie and fingerless gloves. We decided to do Weets and decide on our retu...

All in different parts of the country and yes I know that TV covers the same areas as well. Hustings generally allow questioning of the candidates by some means. There is also the logistics of balloting around 500,000 members which is around what the party has at the moment. At least it's a finite p...

Newspaper and kindling. plenty of offcuts from the joinery shop. Dad would bring bags home, stored in the coal house. Needed splitting down so we had a round of wood from a tree trunk and I got part of my pocket money for chopping the kindling for the week. We had a damper in the flue but would ofte...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Not welcome at Clarion House. We once had a new brewing up team for the house and I think to create a good impression on their first session they decided to "bottom" the kitchen. They used copious quantities of bleach and other cleaning products. Kitchen was spotless but a couple of weeks later the ...

Went out for a walk as I was feeling a bit stiff. I think from my exertions in the confined space of our Jacks pantry last week. I installed the trunking and the last socket to power his IT kit. A lot of kneeling and crouching in the 2' 6" square floor area available to me. I set off down Valley Gar...
