  1. I live on the Coventry Canal near Tamworth and will keep an eye out for her.
  2. I think it was a typo. Should have read "genuine nursery water can". 😁
  3. So sad and so avoidable. I have seen lots of lads jump locks over the years, fortunately without incident. Jumping across Bugsworth Basin is also popular. The strangest was in 2001, near Monkey Marsh Lock on the K&A, where a few lads had festooned an old bike with inflated inner tubes and were riding it down the hill and into the cut, then recovering the barely floating bike and doing it all over again.
  4. My grandad left his indentures in a mug of Steradent every night! 😁😂
  5. I had a mate who lived on a boat in South Dock for several years. He was very happy there and only moved when he remarried and his old boat was in danger of sinking under the weight of all the things his new wife brought on board. Had to move onto a bigger boat moored on the Thames at Taggs Island.
  6. Could be one of the Kingston pushers. They all used to hang around in the Three Fishes when I went to college there back in the 70's. Oh wrong kind of pusher. 😁
  7. Put your own music on your phone or MP3 player and listen to it through Etymotic earphones. Their earphones cut noise by 98% (up to 42dB) I used to travel on the London Underground and DLR using Etymotic earphones and they completely isolated the noise of the trains. These ones are the cheapest. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Etymotic-ERMK-5-Isolating-Earbuds-Earphones-Black/dp/B00OQG7IC2/ref=pd_sbs_23_t_0/260-8504833-4093362?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00OQG7IC2&pd_rd_r=0a28df88-033b-46b9-a0a2-423a5ed09b19&pd_rd_w=aKeew&pd_rd_wg=gXzOr&pf_rd_p=e44592b5-e56d-44c2-a4f9-dbdc09b29395&pf_rd_r=BR9W3049966KD0796Y9H&psc=1&refRID=BR9W3049966KD0796Y9H
  8. I saw the news in my Google News Feed. It jnforms me about news of subjects I am interested in plus the latest headlines. No I have not seen any further information. I guess once the Police announced that the death was not suspicious the journalists lost interest.
  9. I can't help diagnose yiur hydraulic problem, but pouring a kettlefillor two of boiling water down the weedhatch before putting your hands down there takes the chill off the water.
  10. I wish you a full and speedy recovery Peter.
  11. Lifelines are unlike any other AGM battery. They are excellent batteries and if looked after properly will have a long life. Unfortunately they can be killed just as quickly as cheap batteries if you don't treat them properly. Read and understand this post to get the best out of them.
  12. Lifelines AGM's can be equalised, indeed they recommend it. Mine are now 12 years old, have been regularly equalised and still have around 50% of their badged capacity left. https://lifelinebatteries.com/2015/10/can-i-equalize-agm-batteries/
