Re: Texas electric

Waste heat presupposes that there is a nearby industrial producer to allow for transportation. We don't have that in most areas, industry having been exported years ago. The number of say, steel works has reduced to less than a handful. It's dubious if our climate is warm enough for heat pumps and I...

Re: Cars again

Good choice Tac, fairly reliable so should provide good service for a while. Good luck on the new job as well.

Re: Army rules for ponytails and nail color

Moon, as an ELP fan I actually have that LP on vinyl and listen to it often.

As to the "Deteriorata" that brings back memories.

Good postings.

Re: Texas electric

There has been mooted to stop the installation of new gas boilers from 2025 but what will replace them is not clear. I'm glad that I don't have your energy bill. We have a 4 bed detached house, fairly well insulated so I suppose our current bills are reasonable.

Re: What were you doing an hour ago?

Well, don't want to brag but, we have just put both of our cars through MOT ( annual mechanical fitness test ) for the princely sums of £198.22 for a Ford Fiesta and £42.19 for a SEAT Ibiza. The Fiesta had a new partial exhaust and four tyres. They both had a "free" annual service ( paid for parts o...

Re: Texas electric

Just as a comparison here are the energy prices I paid last month. We pay a daily charge and a per kwh rate. Electricity: 21.78p/day, 15.4p/kwh Gas: 19.47p/day, 2.66p/kwh From November to April is my main period with a peak of about 90kwh/month for gas and 750kwh/month for electricity. But for gas, ...

Re: Froze Over

UA, Fred, denimini has a point in that you were sot quick to defend an indefensible Republican Senator that you didn't check your facts. Away from the US we tend to have more moderated news coverage ( that includes Australia ). You are so quick to defend Trump despite all that He has done and still ...

Re: Sexual Fetish or Gender Expression?

The important aspect to me is that maybe fashion designers may at last be waking up to a potentially huge market that is ripe for opening up with just the right encouragement and marketing. I do believe that if men's skirts were marketed consistently and seriously using celebrity endorsement and cle...

Re: Sexual Fetish or Gender Expression?

I was reading an article on the current trend to gender fluidity in fashion. The url is as follows: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/lifestyle/style/how-gender-fluidity-is-revolutionising-london-fashion-week/ar-BB1dSJle?li=BBoPOOm . I liked the last two paragraphs which show that there is perhaps a slow ch...

Re: A Sincere Request of Help from Those Who Disagree with My Politics

I have read this thread with great interest. I have noticed that there is a great difference in the way that your legislation is formed compared to ours. Over here a bill is submitted. It has a single purpose - to exit the EU or to enact Equality legislation. In the US a bill is submitted and extra ...

Re: The Little Bazaar

Really nice, Moon, and it looks good, good, good. I don't see any reason why your skirt would receive any negative reaction. I like that type of pattern, looks quite sort of rustic bohemian.

Re: Froze Over

I agree with PatJ, he should have cancelled. Anyway his "pre-planned" holiday excuse seems a bit lame when his own statements make it appear as a late-minute decision. Also his wife's broadcast about anyone wanting to get away from the cold weather via a trip to Calcun hardly makes it seem preplanne...

Re: A Sincere Request of Help from Those Who Disagree with My Politics

moon, the reduction in buying power over time is called inflation and the higher the rate of inflation the quicker buying power declines in value. In the UK the current minimum rate is £8.72 per hour and from 1st April 2021 it will rise to £8.91. Increases are generally tied to the overall rate of i...

Re: Sexual Fetish or Gender Expression?

If you'll pardon the expression but when I first started wearing skirts, and one time when my wife was having a go at me for doing so, she asked, "Do you get a hard-on when wearing a skirt?" I had to assure her that I didn't and my wearing a skirt had nothing to do with any aspect of sexual gratific...

Re: I have this picture of the train station in York......

Tom, the only two distinctions of Lord Mayor's Walk are that it follows the bar walls on one side and the York St John University at one end of it. And that's it.
