Welcome Ivan, I'm also from North Yorkshire - but it's a big county!

Re: Olympus Pen F - Mint and boxed + extras

A couple of bricks of 35mm APX25 dated 2006 in the freezer, and some 120 APX 100 from (I think) 1997 or so. The latter has been stored at room temperature. PM me for more info if you like, we don't...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

My parents had a Teasmaid. It worked well enough but boiled the water so noisily there was scarcely a need for the alarm clock function! Goblin used to make vacuum cleaners as well I believe. ...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The bagless one was a Vax Power 2 C91, the German one is a Miele Complete C3 Limited Edition. The bags take seconds to change and incorporate a seal so the contents don't spill. They're not...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I have a German vacuum cleaner that uses bags and has a 900W motor which I believe is the maximum allowable power. It's still capable of lifting the hearthrug completely off the floor even with a...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

You're probably right there Paul. Interesting article; it suggests that we would be better off inside the EU helping it to reform, which we know is badly needed and is a big driver behind Brexit....

Re: Motor Insurance Question

I used to like it when we had insurance brokers to do all the hard work for us! As for house insurance, I live near a mill stream which the Environment Agency has adjudged to be a "medium flood...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Presumably it's because hybrid vehicles still incorporate an infernal combustion engine. Even if a hybrid produces half the pollution of a normal petrol or diesel vehicle it is still polluting, and...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Good science would usually mean that a result that's significantly at odds with the norm is investigated for mistakes by peer review before publication. An error in one piece of work doesn't mean...

Re: Motor Insurance Question

If I recall correctly I think mine went down slightly when I moved from urban Hemel Hempstead to rural North Yorkshire in 2002 but since then it has risen every year by considerably more than the...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

That’s pretty much what a hybrid car is now but without the trailer. A friend of mine has a Vauxhall Ampera hybrid which is pretty impressive but no longer made. It uses a small petrol engine to...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

The range issue is an interesting one. We've become so used to petrol and diesel cars having ranges of 400 miles or more that huge numbers of filling stations have disappeared over the last few years...

Re: "Not Secure" Warning Triangle

There was a thread about this a while ago. It doesn't need to be secure as it's not a business taking orders and payments. That said, for the reasons Paul explained it would be a good idea to change...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

One of the problems with the whole Brexit situation is exactly that the British are still going on about Dunkirk (and WW2 in general). It's a pity more people cannot look forwards instead of...
