  4. I can think of three reasons you may have said that. One being her tremendous wit.
  5. Good call TM! Should be easy to add. Ta.
  6. Oilstone at the ready. Should have this tomorrow.

  8. Not sure TM. It's got side windows which means you don't have to be in front of it to see the flames. The stirling engine just needs a push to start. It's all about the moisture content I found. Very dry wood (6 or 7%) is so very controllable with the air wheel. You can have the flames roaring or just "etherial" which is very hypnotising as the volatile gasses just catch and roll, receed and roll.
  9. Couple years back, I fitted a solid oak porch and front door at the house in summer. I seemed to be for-ever plane-ing off the swollen door when it rained. Some-one in here said don't stop until you can slide a 50P (edgeways) coin <door to frame> in the gap. That worked. This year the wet weather has been exceptionaly <sp> bad for swelling doors.

  11. 'Spoons". I would never go in one for a quiet or intimate pint or "atmosphere", but not to be discounted for large groups and work socials etc. I seems to always have a 'spoons" prepaid credit card in my wallet. I sometimes chuck it to people who I owe a favour or who deserve a treat and say "go damage the card"
  12. What's the short hand for the Cadre of respondants in CWDF who see "racist" contents in posts where is does not exist?
  13. I agree in principle that modern practices are much better then old practices. Everyone has a right to return home ok at the end of a shift. However - the paperwork side has gone a bit bonkers. We spend so much time writing out individual works and task procedures <RAMS> for things our skilled chaps have spent a liftime doing (the same tasks). Not only that - our highly qualified Engineers often have to sit down for 4 hour bespoke "inductions" on some building sites when the single visit task takes 30 mins - often use of only a wrench and screwdriver, then we leave. I do sometimes despair.
