Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I think there must be a fire somewhere, there is a yellowish haze and a slightly acrid smell. Your friend must have started early! No acrid smells from Sam's barbecue it is fed only with the best Oak or Apple chips and small logs. We will be having a bit of lunch before we go, past experience has t...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We are going to a family friends barbecue mid afternoon for a few hours. Always a good plan when it's hot, light a fire! :extrawink: No ordinary fire this, I reckon it will be Sam's Old Smokey in use today. :smile:

Re: Back Under Canvas

A good tale China and a lesson in "buyer beware". There are a number of the Horizon 4's on sale via Ebay. One particular vendor who processes customer and manufacturer returns. Campingresources are power sellers and have over 4600 sales with 100% positive feedback. Some of the sales start from 99p f...

Re: Back Under Canvas

Other niceties on the Horizon 4 are built in ingress points for electric hook up in both the outer flysheet and inner tent. Most decent campsites now have tent pitches with or without electric hook up. Flysheet and groundsheet both have a 4000mm hydrostatic head. If we went for a new one with a warr...

Re: Back Under Canvas

Aye, we have kept most of our stuff out as if the weather holds we may go on another jaunt next week. Interesting to note that the inflatable airbeam tents, are pumped up to around 6 bar, that's 87 psi in old money. Very cunning design and another that I wished I had thought of. The airbeams are eff...

Or you could just try the other Browns butchers, Nathan's on Newtown or go for Miles Hutchinson the pie man's steak puddings they are also excellent. All of Nathan's meat is locally sourced as well.

I agree totally with those MPs who are calling for Parliament to be recalled immediately and kept in session until we have a clear outcome or Brexit or both.
I said that when it all went belly up. Failing a coalition we should have locked the doors on them until a resolution three years ago.

I have unlimited broadband but was wondering if the phone provider charges for Facetime. No, it's only another type of data stream same as any other usage of the bandwidth as long as you don't have a data cap you can use whatever app you want. You will need an Apple product to use it though as stat...

I think we have all our kit sorted now for the camping trip. Sally has made new carry bags for our folding chairs and she has also turned out one of the three tiers of our old camp kitchen which we kept the base sections of. It has folding legs so packs flat and will be ideal as a base for our new t...

Re: Driving Licence Application

Been back to driving now for about a month. I have to say that I have not found many problems with more than a nine month lay off. The I30 automatic is a joy to drive, the tendency to use my left foot and hence tense it up for a non existent clutch has resolved itself nicely. If anything with the au...

You could be right Ian but my mother told me it was called wireless because they used to have dancing parties where every one wore headphones and the wires were suspended from the ceiling. So at least some of the listeners called it wireless for that reason and she was there at the time. No account...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I was at Lanlee yesterday getting a screw top / carry handle for the Camping Gas bottle. The half full bottle I had given didn't have one, helps to keep the dirt out of the top valve and makes it easier to carry.

Not stated that Laura did Facetime on the computer, "She used the FM3 to do an assessment for a job in Perth". I'll lay odds that Facetime was via an I phone or tablet. :extrawink:

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

That was the miracle of the 1930s, listening to a wireless without headphones, the reason why it was called wireless of course. Not quite correct there Stanley, the reason it is called wireless is the fact that a radio does not require a wired connection for reception like it's predecessor the tele...

Pictures to prove it as well. Here is Sally at Châteaux...
