  • It is extremely unlikely any drone maker will include tracking on UK retail versions of their drones, simply because using any kind of auto-tracking fails to meet the requirements of the law (unless you have permission to fly commercially) : “You must keep the drone in your direct sight at all times while it is flying”; you can’t guarantee it…[Read more]

  • Yes you can get counselling for procrastination. Also CBT, mindfulness etc as well as planning tools like mind mapping and breaking up tasks. But what you’ve said sounds more like avoidance. In many development disorders e.g. high functioning autism or ADHD, there are a range of both social and executive function issues that look like…[Read more]

  • To experience traditional Czech beer / drinking culture, try a beer hall like U Zlateho Tygra. You sit at large tables and are served pilsner almost continuously. If you don’t want more you need to put the beer mat over the top of the glass. That hall is famous because a former president took foreign dignatories there, e.g. Bill Clinton which…[Read more]

  • US/Canada are they bikepacking or using public transport / hitch hiking between cities with bikes? Off the tourist trail motels are cheap but in cities can be rough but that’s what you get for cheap. I would camp, BLM in west US and National and State Forests usually allow free dispersed camping and have affordable campsites with facilities. Also…[Read more]

  • ” I await the imminent return of the express “beast from the east” headline….”

    Ha exactly, I am sure the UK and US press will have a field day if it does happen… but in the near future it looks more like rain tbh.

  • There are some key difference between the difficulties in tropospheric weather forecasting at mid-latitudes past ~5 days (as in trying to forecast what are (mathematically) chaotic, stochastic processes past their prediction horizon) and modelling long-term stratospheric changes like SSW, which occur as a result of preceding tropospheric…[Read more]

  • konagirl replied to the topic Going veggie or vegan… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    I have an ibs diagnosis and am veggie. I am aware UC is quite different. But I would say being veggie can be harder because one main source of protein – beans, lentils – and the stuff that makes stuff taste nice – onions, garlic – are fodmaps. As said it really depends what causes the flareups and you just have to keep a diary of everything…[Read more]

  • If your bank is allowing you to overpay on the 12 year term, then that should be simplest, but you do need to be careful when you get towards paying off before the end of the term to read the small print of what the exit fees are. I certainly wouldn’t be buying a 10 year fixed term because there will almost certainly be early repayment fees if you…[Read more]

  • Bare Grills – I wouldn’t. It’s quite chain-y, nothing particularly spectacular and will be full of students. If you want a steakhouse, go to the Cowshed on Whiteladies Road.

    I can vouch for the Riverstation. The Pontoon downstairs bit still has good views but does pub-type food well and in big portions, so relaxed. We had the Riverstation menu…[Read more]

  • Sorry only just read the rest of the thread! Who paid what deposit is a bit meaningless, when you were put on to the land registry as joint owners, if you signed as joint tenants you have joint equity. If you wanted to retain your claim to your deposit you should have (both) signed as tenants in common with appropriate % ownership.

    Anyway as I…[Read more]

  • England & Wales example, might be different in Scotland / NI? It is certainly possible to be named tenants in common or joint tenants on the deeds but only one person be responsible for the mortgage. And the mortgage can have a gaurantor with no mention on the deeds. We had a situation where the bank with the best mortgage offer wouldn’t include…[Read more]

  • konagirl replied to the topic Things to do in Florida in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    Like most of the USA there is far more to Florida than the Disneyworld advertising would suggest. Wilderness, forest and wildlife are all there but you have to seek out solitude.

    TiReD near Orlando if you are hot go to one of the springs you can swim in / tube / kayak. Or hike in Ocala Forest while looking for bears. Or mountain bike at…[Read more]
