    How much are you paying for smokeless?

    I noticed this problem with the excel at the beginning of last winter but it improved as the season progressed. This year the excel I have been getting has none of the problems of the last few years, it gives good heat, no fumes and is easy to keep in. Must be made by different manufacturers, mine is in marked bags from K G Smith.

    Smoke alarm and cooking

    Got the same problem only started when I brought Fireangel. I now have a heat alarm in the kitchen and smoke alarms else where, but the smoke alarms still go off.

    I would refuse to bite a scuffler if Stotties were on offer.

    Sounds like a poor southern imitation of a Stottie Cake

    Hire boater basic training

    I took engine keys off 2 boats 1 party at Thrupp last year as they had lots of complaints against them. They were told to vacate the boat and had to make their own way back to Heyford to get their cars.

    No safe level for drinking

    I find the safest level is close to the ground so that I do not hurt myself when I fall ?

    Radio 2 had a crt spokesman saying that all the paddles had been left up by a boater going through. He implied that it was quite a few locks.
