Re: Car maintenance

Apparently vehicles are safe to drive during tha pandemic no matter what the problems. Panic over Yeah but unbeknownst to me it ran a few weeks before they announced that and not h...

Car maintenance

Isn’t it annoying that when you try to fix the car yourself that you don’t have the right tool you need (in this case a torx bit just smaller than the ones I’ve got)? So you order a smaller set with bigger bits in it only for that to arrive that the new bits are still a bit too small so back onto Am...

Re: Water!

Bearing in mind what Australia has been through in the last 6 months or so, I can understand your enthusiasm at seeing 'real live water'. Unfortunately, here in the wet of England (and that's not a typo), we're getting a little fed up with it. Tell me about it, considering asking the boss for a set...

Re: Celeb Style That Is Wearable

Looks great, though I'll wait for Storm Ciara to pass as I wouldn't want the wind affecting the skirt and me showing more than I planned to :shock: :mrgreen: I think that’s the reason one of our recycling boxes have gone missing... :twisted: So it’s another convulted phone call to Mendip District C...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Out in the City of Wells this afternoon doing some shopping. Wearing black knee high boots, a long denim skirt, an orange top and orange tights and a yellow padded jacket. Had a good time browsing the shops and managed to buy myself a purse from a charity shop and a knee length yellow skirt from a ...

Well I’ve posted else where on here I went for a walk to test run a new skirt and knee high boots, passed a few people and as far as I know only got one “up and down” look....

Re: Lurking in a bush!!!

The intention is to reopen the line from Radstock to Frome, not quite sure what the owners of Whatley quarry think as that part joins the quarry line just outside of Hapsford... Going well off topic here:  I've been involved in that from a distance.  Re-opening that line would transform the Radstoc...

Re: Lurking in a bush!!!

I went out for a walk yesterday to test run a new skirt and pair of boots along the old formation of the Somerset and Dorset railway when I found the remains of an old rusted brake van (caboose in American?) sat on old section of track!!! I assumed all the track had been lifted and recovered when t...

Re: The Curious Origin of the High Heel

Does that mean that people outside the UK will have to suffer a world without commercials like us Brits? How will they stand having to watch a whole programme without the constant breaks to erm, put the kettle on to make tea/coffee, or err, make room for more tea/coffee? You never know, uninterrupt...

Re: Lurking in a bush!!!

Hopefully a bit bigger, wouldn’t allow me to do the large size :roll: Better, certainly -- and thank you! I've got things tuned so images of about 800 pixels in the "long dimension" will fit within the (octet-)size limitations. So, using your favourite image editor, do all the resizing in pixels in...
