  2. maltesers advert

    Anybody else see this during the paralympics coverage. BETTER LOOK QUICK BEFORE THE MODS SEE IT (ONLY JOKING!)
  3. I have known about the "practice" of trying to rip me off for car and house insurance on auto renewals for a while and always ask a Meerkat or robot for help. However I did not know the RAC were the same. Just got notification of renewal and I thought "I don't remember it being that expensive before" so I did a quick browse. I then rang the RAC and threatened them with Green Flag. During the conversation my RAC quote dropped from £180 to £107 for the same cover. Robbing B*@t*rds!! Could I advise people to do quick comparison, or even just ring, before paying.
  4. Flooding in Calderdale

    Article from Huddersfield Examiner re flooding in Elland. Interesting, and depressing, pictures. Last night local news stated that CRT are responsible for the bridge repairs (rebuild?). That is going to cost! http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/amazing-new-pictures-show-havoc-10685311
  5. Beer!!!!

    ALDI at £2.49, 6% though. Just tried it, a good Christmas beer, not available in Slawit (I might not be telling the truth there, I need to get some more!)
  6. We mean well, but ....

    Just seen this in the local (Huddersfield) paper. http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/new-cycling-route-between-huddersfield-10058060 Where can you get the signs from?
  7. The cheapest secure moorings on the cut

    If it is (Nantwich and Borders) they advertise that they can only take boats up 40 foot.
  8. STOP LOSING FENDERS FOR EVER

    Have I missed something?
  9. Types of coal

    Just bought a couple of bags of "burning peat" from my local supplier. Made(?) by this firm http://peatheat.co.uk/index.html £5 for a big bag (dosen't work for comparison by weight) Looking at their web site the heat produced vs. price seems to be good. Trying it on my squirrel at home, burns more easily than other peat I have tried. Anybody else tried it? Thinking of taking some down to the boat. Regards Also posted in coal price thread by mistake
  10. What are people paying for coal this year?

  11. Most stressful days cruising

    Oh for the halcyon days on the HNC! Look on the bright side, the beer down there is too expensive to drink anyway. Best wishes.
  12. Muck or nettles

    Hi somebody used this the other day, I know it means "all or nothing" but I can't find out any information as to the origin. Anybody got any ideas? Regards.
  13. Identifying CWDF members

    Or how about a secret handshake Or a planter of pink geraniums on the roof Or.......... Allright, coat, hat
  14. I bought the tape from "more-than tape" on Ebay. "DOUBLE SIDED VHB GEL TAPE 12mm x 5mtr STRONG ADHESIVE" As I said in the previous post I only did it last week so I cannot say it has worked, but so far so good. The adhesive bit that is left after peeling off the backing is about 2mm thick and soft so I am hoping it will "fill" any imperfections/holes in the metal. When you think about the stresses involved in the application it should not have too much stress put on it (I hope) The job cost aprox. £25 so (when compared to the price of brass) it's not too big a gamble. Regards
  15. Just done ours (last week)so I don't know if it's going to last. Working fine at the moment though. I put 2mm thick strip onto steel (using it instead of brass) fixing it with double sided "gel" automotive tape Got the plastic from Direct plastics online.co.uk Had to buy a 500mm wide sheet to get the length but it only cost about £12, cuts easy with a sharp stanley knife.
