I paid £3 a pint last night. No idea how much a packet of 'fags' is.
Last time I was behind someone buying cigs and they opened the doors, I think it was around £8.00 a packet. You get a pretty picture for that as well, something on the lines of cancerous lungs or other nasties.

Did you see the programme on New York, I think BBC2 last night? Actual ground space is very hard to find now and the program featured the development over a live railway yard. The developers paid $1billion for the vertical airspace above the rail yard and are building multiple developments in fresh ...

Re: PUZZLES - CRYPTIC CLUES AND ANSWERS

I would obviously fail a stupid or cryptic question GCSE or would it be comprehension failure? My online triangle calculator thingy had it no more than about 6" over 200 miles. I wouldn't have access to that in an exam anyway so there is no chance for me. Five years of calcs and principles that I al...

Daft question, it depends at what point from the centre that the hypothetical buckling starts.

If it were me, I would rigidly fasten it along all its length but on fasteners that would allow for expansion. :biggrin2: :extrawink:

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yesterdays session of cupboard fixing was truncated by a mutually agreed executive decision to stop flogging a dead horse and get the wall sorted. The guy that fitted the kitchen said that he was glad we hadn't asked him to fit any cupboards due to the nature of the studded wall! The former tap room...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

As there were only two actual machined parts in the weapon, the rest were pressed steel. The tolerances on magazine production were not very good. Consequently you could get badly fitting magazines that could give rise to misfires as they did not fit solidly into the feed chamber. Not helped also by...

Re: STEAM ENGINES AND WATERWHEELS

I remember John and his family, he had a rental TV from us, so had occasion to visit a time or two. I remember his kids were very inquisitive and I had to describe everything I was doing when mending the TV, it was a lively household.

Continuing to wrestle with cupboard fitting at Bosom Friends Community rooms. A new studded wall with some lateral high spots, it looks perfectly OK until you put a straight edge on it. not welcome with a 1000mm cupboard to fit!

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Thanks for that confirmation Stanley. I thought they would be linked but had never thought of the relay. You can still see the flat mount for the siren on the gable ridge of the gasworks building. Any idea if there were any other sites?

Nolic mentioning the siren testing has jogged another memory from me. The fire station siren I mentioned was tested at 10.30 and had its associated turn out response drill every Saturday morning. I reckon they got a double whammy of system testing. There was the siren on top of the hose and ladder p...
