    Old recordings available

    I have a collection of 43 VHS tapes which contain amongst other SW stuff the episodes of series 12 through to 28 (1990 to about 2007 when I moved to DVD recording) all recorded off air from the original broadcast. I really no longer have room for these but I am advised that they will have some...

The attached diagram is my attempt to describe how the houses intermingle. As well as doing this along the side elevation it...

    A question of dates ....

    Some four or five months ago I bought a tub of margarine. I find it is almost at its "use by"date yet I have used less than 50%. It was the smallest tub on offer. Not even sure if it could be frozen to extend life but that would be a messy job sorting it out and, I recall reading that freezing...

    Has Firefox changed something?

    Sorry not been here for a few days but Firefox seemed to shifted to Yahoo not Google and it means I lost the links I had to access this, and other sites! Do not like Yahoo layout and having trouble spotting everything in a favourites box as there are so many small letters and no symbols! Any...

    Assistance required on IT front

    I have Firefox on my Apple MAc and I have noticed that spelling corrections does not work on it. Would it work on Safari?

    A slight problem in travelling across London with a through discounted ticket ....

    Sounds a bit like a SW title!! But I have now discovered that if you have a ticket booked through London stations (as I do to go from Yorkshire to Sussex which is fairly regularly) and it is discounted with the Senior Railcard (or any other railcard) it will NOT operate the barriers at St...

    Thoughts on mint chocolates

    Today I picked up a raffle prize I won on Saturday (dementia awareness event) and amongst the lovely goodies was a packet of mint chocolates. Two things I noticed: 1) mint chocolates are always in plain chocolate never milk 2) there is no mint mentioned in the ingredients lists - presumably...
