  5. So what do you make of the order on security keypads then?
  6. Harvest flies, an episode of Jonathan Creek revolved around one sitting on a fax paper and looking like a comma...
  7. One of them was certainly an Ormelite, I didn't recognise the other so you are likely right on that one too Yes, although I worry far less about a steel boat coming up behind Juno that I do about them coming along side - behind they simply have to stop in time, alongside they have to aim straight...
  8. I'm not convinced that's true - these were trial schemes of which MK was one, and the hire was only legal in trial areas so MK may have had the option to not be a trial area That said MK is well laid out for cycling (the new town area is at any rate) so I can see the temptation to give it a go One of the oddities of the trial was that, because the scooters were still not road legal (or even pavement legal) during the trials then riding a hire scooter on the highway was legal but riding your own was not...
  9. It's not just they are not expecting it - the door pillars give a blind spot, especially on the left (assuming RHD car) that doesn't matter if someone approaches the carriageway edge at walking speed, but does matter if they do it at 15 mph. Having driven it round the garden several times recently, I think it goes quite fast enough!
  10. The real damage seems to be on Weston Cut - I didn't get that far yesterday but photos suggest it has completely emptied and boats have tipped over. If the level fell six feet then that's what will happen EA have also issued a statement (it's in today's times) acknowledging their gate has caused the problem and effectively admitting they don't know why. Presumably the previous problem had been fixed.
  11. Normally just the first bit, even in a wide lock. I'm not too worried about being first in a narrow lock, but I'd never put Juno in first into a wide lock.
  12. Clearly this situation is serious, but Somerset Live is a panic-rag of the first order aided and abetted by a local population all to ready to cry foul and lap up tales of gloom and doom - and I live here! I was slightly surprised to find similar instances of sluice failure elsewhere as for some reason only ours result in people from the Midlands and beyond telling the world that CRT in Bath should do a better job with sluices they don't own.
  13. One would hope so - usually there is not much wrong with the sluices, although obviously gearing gets worn, it's the control mechanism that causes the problem. In the case of the ones at Twerton they go up when they shouldn't, or stay up when they should go down.
  14. Yes... Or at least one of that set at Twerton did, I don't know it it was the same leaf each time
  15. The bank is normally at deck level, now it's at roof level - by Avon Street car park This is between the canal and Pulteney weir - not CRT
