  2. It's marketing bolleax. They are simply mini fan ovens.
  3. Definitely looking better. Depending upon the length of your flue (they are always too short on boats) you may find that the flames start to go yellow rather than blue from setting 3 or 4 upwards. If it is windy it is also likely to burn yellow at lower settings than normal. My low setting barely has any flame visible. Like @Mike Tee above, I haven't found the need to run the stove hotter than setting 2 unless playing with it.

  6. Mine is secondary glazed with what looks like fluorescent tube diffuser. No drips at at
  7. That's what BT used to check for the presence of water in their bulk fuel tanks when I worked there.
  8. Indeed, when I was working on a project with a company called Stirling Denmark, a colleague kept misspelling their company name in correspondence as Sterling Denmark. He was mortified when a Dane took him to task over his ongoing mistake and wrote a letter of apology. As a finishing touch he got Google to translate it into Danish. At the next meeting the Dane thanked him for the apology and then asked him what he had meant by a certain phrase He had put "in future I will try harder" but Google had translated it as "in future I will try to be more difficult!" 🤣

  10. You can get combine microwave air fryers already. https://www.bestproductsreviews.co.uk/microwave-air-fryer-combo?targetid=dsa-19959388920&matchtype=&device=c&campaignid=15548184439&creative=569168980237&adgroupid=131395587735&feeditemid=&loc_physical_ms=1007147&loc_interest_ms=&network=g&devicemodel=&placement=&keyword=$&target=&aceid=&adposition=&trackid=uk_all_top_11_2&mId=407-132-4411&trackOld=true&gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAiA1MCrBhAoEiwAC2d64TmGH5Ri_6AxMCceT2pc8fZSXiiQ7JeIgTeb2QeskbzLIYRaV_8UxhoCwJcQAvD_BwE

  16. Ah but have you taken into account the global warming effect of the steam coming out of the drivers ears?.. 🤣😂
  17. Before the environmentalists hijacked it the term "green" meant "wet behind the ears" or lacking in knowledge. This is certainly the case with many cyclists I have seen, particularly with respect to rules appertaining to traffic lights, riding on footpaths, using lights when it's dark and common sense when squeezing up the inside of LGV's clearly indicating left.

  19. I'm surprised no one has suggested inserting a suitably sized potato into the exhaust of the offending generator. Works every time unless you get caught doing it! 🤣😂
  20. Here's a photo of the dog and cat (aged 14 and 20) that I had in 2015. Both died within 2 months of each other that summer.
  21. Running the Webasto will lower the fuel level in the fuel tank, leaving more exposed steelwork for condensation to form on, which in turn increases the chance of getting diesel bug (which lives in the junction between diesel and oil). However the Webasto isn't subject to mains power failures, so you pays your money and takes your choice.
  22. This. We got Sam from a breeder in Shropshire because they were happy to do show us the parents. Initially we were looking for our fourth rescue dog, but were rejected by 8 charities because our house is adjacent to a canal with an unfenced edge to the canal. Despite my offers to put up temporary fencing if necessary (which had been an acceptable solution in the past for our previous rescue dog) they refused, so eventually we bought a pup from a breeder. Here is our first photo of Sam and one of his parents.
  23. I agree. Our local community website went into overdrive after someone reported seeing a boater empty his cassette into the cut and another reported the damage being done to trees in a canalside wood by boaters "foraging" for wood by cutting branches off living trees. These boaters do the rest of us no favours at all.
  24. When I was looking for a canalside property with moorings ten years ago I simply googled "canalside properties with moorings" and lo and behold loads turned up, mainly on Rightmove and/or Zoopla.
