Re: ENERGY MATTERS

On the other side of the coin, we are £348.00 in credit with BG. This is despite them varying our debit to try and compensate. They can refund us all of that which will pay for the next 4 months or possibly 5 from our new supplier. I will have to read my own meters for a while as the energy companie...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Immersion heaters and thermostats. While we were doing up our first house I installed a new plastic cold water tank to replace the original zinc one in the cistern cupboard. With us both working before we got married we worked on the house in the evenings. I had a job in Barlick mid afternoon so I t...

Re: GOOD TV

Well I'm confused a bit with your terminology here Stanley, too many boxes! What are you trying to connect to the router? On the one hand you say that it is OK because the TV gets internet via the router so what is the problem? Your Humax Satellite receiver should be connected to your internet route...

Have you checked for firmware updates Stanley? Usually hiding in the settings menu.

Also is your receiver still connected to the internet?

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

We found some in the old shed on the sidings (now the Coop car park of course) when I was lad. Took them down to the garages fastened them to a post and set them off by shooting them with a .22 air rifle, lots of fun. :biggrin2: :extrawink:

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Probably not relevant in this case but registrations can be kept and transferred, they are not always an indication of the cars age. My daughter has the registration on her 2017 marque car from one of the first cars she ever owned over 20 years ago. It's been on every vehicle she has had since.

I think this was retrieved from someone's garden having been missing for a number of years. Re-instated and documented by Nick Livesey I think via one of the local facebook groups a few years ago.

We can draw the conclusion that since Mrs May and Corbyn are saying the same thing then by implication he must think Mrs May is a useful idiot. I think that is a given Plaques, she has taken the poison chalice of brexit and is now in a perfect position of her own making to be stabbed in the back by...

I feel for you Wendy, I did that coming off Penyghent once on hard frosted ground. Proper shakes you up and knocks the wind out of you. I ended up with a couple of cracked ribs, you stand half a chance if you fall forwards but backwards is no fun at all. :sad:

Our relevantly new mobile phone shop on Albert Road was broken into and burgled twice last week. I cant see why the powers that be cant retrieve CCTV footage, there is a camera 10M away covering the area. Maybe they have but are not saying anything. :confused:

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Ian, the size of a party's membership is not a reliable predictor of how well it would do in an election or how effective it would be at governing the country. Even 600,000 is only a small proportion of UK voters. The vast majority don't join a political party. Some parties are more geared up to ga...

Clans are gathering all over the place. We are picking our Ruby up today, a half and half journey down the M6 to Sandbach. I hope the motorway is kind and the majority of traffic has gone.
