Thread: Electric Cars.
17/07/2019 11:22:26

Think your right Bob. Our street lamps have been replaced in the last year or so, both by the city and district councils. Neither incorporated charging points.

80% of houses (60) have two or more cars, so I see a problem if they all become “electrified” Shamefully five at my house. Think we’ll need a power station at the top of the road. Have every faith our leaders will sort it!

Going to Brum on a Sunday in August for a day at the cricket. Need to be in the ground at the round by, say, 10:30am. It’s an about a 50 min. Train journey, first train to leave home is 10:23!!!

Also if we go to an evening gig in Birmingham last train home is 10:20. Music stops around 11pm. Public transport, it’s a joke.

Got to get the Jag out again.

Thread: Never throw anything away!

Ok, I have noticed any expanding/ contraction issues, if they were there I probably unknowingly trimmed them out.

searching for nuts now, as stated none included, and no mention of them instruction wise.

Thanks for the info.

The mjetion of a locking device for use with carbon control rods prompts me to ask how to these ( the silver items) work? I’ve tried to fit them in various guises, but nothing I’ve tried is correct, or doesn’t appear to be!


Cheers to all.

I am due to start radiation therapy at the end of August so I’m going to see if I can get it on NHS. It was offered privately for about £1500 ( verbal estimate from consultant )

I reckon that’s a serious mid-life crises, when you sell your sports car for a van!

Who is going to police this? Can’t see the boys in blue taking an interest. They won’t even rock up here if your burgled, had your vehicle nicked/damaged etc.

Thread: failed e-flite SAFE receiver
02/05/2019 21:04:50

Tim is spot on. I had two flyaways using said receiver. Both landed safely. Retrieving was difficult as both occurred well into fields of fully grown crops, one wheat, the other rape. Never used the Rx since.

Just a year since I was diagnosed with stage 2/3 Prostate Cancer. I had had regular "finger" examinations, up to about 3 years ago as I had for some time had a need to get up during the night for a pee. Findings were only of a slightly enlarged Prostate, no need to worry. Need to get up during the night increased to 2 sometimes 3 times, mentioned this to doctor, PSA test followed immediately which showed significantly raised PSA levels. Immediate referral to Urology department at Churchill Hospital Oxford. MRI and Multipoint biopsy followed quickly, then offered either surgery or radiotherapy plus hormone treatment. I chose surgery, 4.5 hour keyhole surgery, home next day a few weeks recuperation and almost back to normal. 8 Weeks from referral to Surgery, can't praise the Churchill team enough, they were brilliant.

A year on and all is clear.

If you're over 50 PSA tests are available on demand, so if in doubt get tested, it's only a simple blood test and might avoid the consequences of Prostate Cancer.


I am, as of last Friday, at this stage. Now awaiting a bone scan to ensure the C hasn’t spread. It goes into bones apparently. I’m told that if that is clear, then I get the hormone plus radiation treatment (every day for 4 to 7 weeks)

i haven’t been offered the keyhole surgery option. Do you think I should query that? The consultant mentioned that 1 in 8 men will suffer this, so yea get checked. Early is good.

If the above methods still defeat you it is always possible to copy your images onto a usb memory stick then insert the stick into a USB port on the tv, select that port from the inputs menu, and bobs your uncle.

I feel I’m really missing out here now. Why have I never had one of these calls. Do I need to change supplier?

Thread: Gatwick drone incident

Surely these devices return to the pilots position. Follow it, and bobs your uncle. Either by sight or using police UAV.

Am I being too simplistic here?
