  2. You, like me, probably reckon his "decade" was circa 1965 - 1975. Early Beatles - forget it (don't tell the Memsahib). Late Beatles - getting quite "progressive". I wouldn't put pickle/chutney on a bacon butty though -- not even Pan Yan (which was also a permanent presence in the pantry of my childhood home dahn sarf, Mike!)
  3. You miss the point. Locks work perfectly well in the 21st century, as they always have, but a horse on the towpath is impractical in most places, and cannot recharge a battery bank. An app to work a lock is unnecessary. It is a solution looking for a problem. Two saws: (1) If it ain't broke don't fix it, and (2) Keep It Simple, Stupid.
  4. As for whether any butty should have butter, scrape or nothing -- up to you. I don't care. Personal choice, I have not voted.
  5. Not from first principles, I hope? Why on earth wouldn;t you? It's made of two slices of bread with bacon in it. so (1) it's butty and (2) its a bacon butty. Two slices of bread with cheese and tomato in is a cheese butty. Two slices of bread with a fried egg in is a fried-egg butty. Two slices of bread with smoked salmon, cream cheese and black pepper in them is heaven, but it's still a butty.
  6. I see no reason to "modernise" a system that has worked perfectly well for hundreds of years. There are far more important things for CRT to spend money on.

  9. All this advice disregards the likelihood that two boats of different lengths might behave differently in the same lock. for what it's worth, I try to put our 48ft 6in right in the middle, and the Memsahib always cracks paddles gently anyway.

  12. In my experience of country driving (in a normal-sized estate car) and meeting SUV drivers on narrow lanes, they are far more reluctant than people in proper cars to put just two wheels off the road. If it's the automatic Haldex system Skoda uses on the Superb 4x4, none apart from the very slight weight increase, It will only cut in the drive to the rear wheels when it needs to. And the more people have one the less valid this argument becomes. If you sit back from the vehicle in front you can see better whatever you are driving.
