By ‘eck op, sounds like an exciting journey.
My father was in AF, in hospital to recover and have the old restart of rhythm thing. Wired up on wireless heart monitor.
All of a sudden, as he was walking down corridor, an alarm went off, a nurse grabbed a wheelchair and the matron all but rugby tackled him into the chair….
The battery for the…[Read more]

As for Milan, sounds like my last work trip. An EU funded ‘cultural and learning exchange’ combined with ‘transnational meeting’ for 6 days in Florence with a group of teachers.
TeamScotland has me sworn to secrecy and no online pictures of the ‘team debrief’ each evening – done with Aperol Spritzers,…[Read more]
Tow bar. Mines Thule and a 2 minute job to fit. I carry the same bikes so I know the right order to finnesse them in without touching. Mrs_oab and the kids load it. Better fuel consumption.
We also have a roof mount on the small car, it works ok, but worse fuel economy, muddy roof and Mrs_oab can’t reach it to load. But it’s ok.
Both are Gumtree…[Read more]

@yosemitepaul The photo you show isn’t a car in Cumbria livery, it isn’t a Cumbrian registered number, and isn’t a Cumbria Logo
I didn’t claim it was Cumbria – I said “like this”.
Shap – A6 not M6, a friend from school and his dad were local farmers who helped out, hence why I regale the story…
They definitely had some Sierra’s, I had a…[Read more]

Rumor was that the Cumbria police Sierra’s and Sapphire’s all had bags of sand in the back to keep them down on the road. There was one story of one going to rescue crew of an overturned police Sierra on Shap in a gale, only for the second to get blown off the road.
Another missed the bend over the bridge at Lazonby only to end up like this…[Read more]
Is there a way to preload routes before heading off line?
If it’s a long route it pops up automatically when you’re on WiFi and asks if you want to download.
Or – Burger/three line menu, offline maps and select your own area.
Some fit into an upright fridge freezer standard slot, some a lot wider, one was double width and under counter sized.
Smaller ones had a tank like a dehumidifier, one was attached to school ventilation system for out going air.
Big ones I’m not sure.

Who was it on here to totally overbuilt a garage for storing two bikes? If so, that users garden.
What does the panel think about drying cabinets?
All the schools and nurseries had them in Sweden, Estonia and Denmark for kids stuff.
When/if I own a house that I can build in garage or build a laundry room, I plan on creating my own.
super insulated, draft sealed, gentle heat, drain connected dehumidifier, possibly a Trombe Wall 😉
Yes, overlooking Falls of Dochart.
Insurance was a faff – when you read insurance documents though most say they don’t cover flooding within 50m of a watercourse!
If our house had been flooded, the test of the village and Loch Tay would be 4m under!
Our old house is behind the tree.
We just had gumtree special vented Creda die on us.
We bought a £380 Hoover heat pump (I did the maths on expensive heat pump and it just doesn’t repay the initial outlay in energy savings unless you got over 12 years out the thing). First Hoover heat pump went back as it pee’d water all over floor and into controls. Second one leaked into…[Read more]

Electric boiler for heating?
Electric boiler for hot water?
I’m not sure it makes a huge difference. Your son isn’t authorised to allow work on the flat – what if he calls the dodgy firm who claim ‘it is just. £4k for a new one’ – only for landlord to tell you he already had a spare boiler and his plumber would do it for £500. Who pays the d…[Read more]
As for Remembrance Day specifically, is there anything wrong with a whole community coming together to honour those who have given their lives for the sake of something bigger than themselves?
No. Not at all. It is very positive.
But it’s quite a unique culture.
I personally prefer to take a different approach when I can.
For the record I…[Read more]
