  3. Long time no hear. Glad you’re afloat again.
  4. They were a washing machine in the fifties and they had a plastic ‘key’, depending which way you put the key in, the different wash programme you did. https://www.scienceandsociety.co.uk/results.asp?image=10240836
  5. Thought this was about the old ‘Keymatic’ washing machines.

  7. Welcome Nigel. There area number of ex-RN on here. I served 1969 to 1983.
  8. The Timmy Taylor range is quite palatable.
  9. Why would anyone want to buy Boddingtons, let alone 8 pints of the stuff. A friend of mine doesn’t drink ale, but would walk miles to get a pint of John Smiths. I do despair.
  10. There was a grey boat, I little one about 31’, on the K&A in 2004. Not anymore, I painted it Oxford Blue and Maroon. So it wasn’t Tawny Owl.
  11. It has been known that I got that far!!!
  12. I have asked in various establishments the difference between ale and craft beer. I have never received an answer. My own humble opinion is that it’s small time breweries brewing beer and that other stuff that I can’t pronounce, then add sometime like kiwi fruit or blackcurrant. That’s the crafty bit I think. If I was still a drinker, temporary cessation, I would stick to ale, beer, draught etc. A micro bar in Banbury boosting to be Banburys first has closed, presumably as a result of the past couple of years of restrictions. Sad really. I never went in there but always got sidetracked on my way.
  13. Wow! That’s amazing. I’m wearing a short sleeved polo shirt. Only have one stove fan though.
  14. You know your dogs better than anyone on here. We live aboard. We have two Jack Russells. We never leave them overnight for obvious reasons. But we feel that to leave them onboard is preferable to taking them to the pub, shops and other stressful places for them. We don’t leave longer than,say, five hours, them having had a good walk beforehand. They are content and probably just have a prolonged kip in peace. Plenty of water available. We leave food down but they never touch it until we get home. (They are not food gobblers and eat when the desire strikes).
  15. Ask away. On the whole, people like to help and advice.
  16. The units I’d like to replace are broken due to brittle plastic syndrome. The remaining ones I have converted to LED. We have a couple of units that have replaced some of the broken units. I’d just like to have ‘all the same’.
  17. If they have the light fittings at the back of a storeroom I’d be on my way to view and pay and collect. They are obsolete fittings but I had heard they have some. I can’t email as the address I have doesn’t go through. I will call. I’m reluctant to call as I won’t get an instant decision as to whether they have any or not. Plus I can’t describe the items clearly over the phone. I have been misunderstood. Not for the first time.
  18. Pinch of salt time. I read reviews of a canal side pub we were planning of visiting for my birthday treat with friends on the Llangollen. Mixed reviews. To be honest it was an absolutely awful experience. Now shut and near ruin. I didn’t read the reviews to get an opinion. Not interested in their reviews at all. Just fell upon them whilst searching for a way to make contact. I should have made my post clearer.
  19. Old thread. But, may I ask? Are all the above comments still true of this business. I only ask as I have read some damming reviews recently. I have been trying to contact them as I understand that they may have some oldish stock of light fittings that I am in need of. As a result I got onto their review page and it doesn’t make good reading I am sad to say. Anyway onwards and upwards These are the light fittings that I am after.
  20. Tooleys are very very helpful. They can buy in a belt for you also. (At your cost of course.) we have left Banbury now and moored not far away, not available until, possibly, Friday. Probably Thursday. Willing to pop down and assist. PM name of the boat. I may well have seen you there.
