Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Went round to the War Memorial for 11am. A few of the townsfolk gathered but there was no maroon from the Town Council this year as in previous years? We had to call our own start and finish for the two minutes silence which was observed by all present. They grown not old as we that are left grow ol...

I only have two missing teeth both upper molars. Lost those in my late 20's one extraction of which ended with a double dose anaesthetic having run out and Mr Imrie on the cusp of calling an ambulance for the hospital to complete the job. He managed in the end (45 minutes later) but had to break the...

If it's working, leave it alone. Power line adaptors rely on both sockets being on the same circuit. In the case of a ring main that is basically all the sockets connected to your consumer unit.

The support collar on the top deck of our carousel has broken. Rotated it this morning to add a bit of shopping we had done and when I tried to rotate it back there was a grinding and breaking noise. The support pin dropped out and the top deck fell down fouling with the stuff on the bottom deck. We...

I noticed the media were calling into question the timing of Tom Watson's resignation and inferring that it was timed to do maximum damage to JC. The fact of the matter is he is not contesting his seat so there has to be time to select another candidate for his constituency. It's simple logistics of...

Finished terminating the sockets on the new ring in Jacks living room. Just one more socket to install on the return line for the ring in the pantry.

Its fine and dandy when the aircraft is empty as it is aerodynamically balanced by design. When you start to shove a few more but not the full design load onboard things can get a bit askew. It's only relevant for take off and landing as the weight needs to be up front to stop the wing stalling unde...
