Re: bike riding

My dad (a lifelong cyclist, who never learned to drive a car) always mounted his bike as per point 1 in the video, but then cocked his leg over the rear of the seat. Like others on here, I would only ride a bike wearing cycle shorts. Although I've got out of the habit of cycling over the last 18 mon...

Men in Kilts - the TV Show

‘Outlander’ Stars Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish Guide us Through the Fun of ‘Men in Kilts’

You will need STARS or Hulu to watch this, I presume. The wife will be interested in this series as she is a big fan of Sam Heughan and Outlander.

Re: Names and Gender

I went to school with a guy called Toni. He had two different stories to explain his name. The first was that his parents liked the name Tony but not Anthony. The registrar would not allow a name that was an abbreviated form of another name so his dad went for Toni instead (a recognized name for a g...

Re: A large and eclectic mix of skirts at this website

As per my last reply (about shoes), I think I need to be careful about the clothing / footwear sites I flag up on here. It seems like quality and fit is poor and customer service is non-existent :( That said.... I just noticed that PayLess seems to be back up and running but as an online retailer ra...

Re: OnlyMaker.Com

Fred - thanks for sharing your experience. Kinda wish I hadn't flagged the company up now :( Not been on here in a while but I seem to remember another site I'd mentioned some time back (for skirts) turned out to be a duffer as well. I think I'll only mention companies where I have a query or where ...

OnlyMaker.Com

OnlyMaker Did a quick search and there is one reference to this company (in passing, back in 2017). It looks like their shoes go up to men size 15 (US). I'm sure the material would be PU or plastic rather than leather at this price point, but this might be a gateway to experience heeled shoes (part...

Re: @jvdd on TikTok

My go-to site for min-in-skirts content has mainly been Pinterest, but I recently had reason to go back to an Instagram account I set up a while back but don't really make much use of. There is some really, really interesting stuff under the hashtags like #meninskirts, #manskirt, #menskirt, #skirtsf...

Re: Sheertex Advert

Well, they had a sale for Black Friday so I got a couple of items. Got a pair of thigh-highs. One of them appears to be ok, but the other has what looks like a manufacturing fault. There are a series of what look like very fine ladders in them. Imagine a mesh bug screen over a window where one of th...

Re: Very O/T - A Query About Home Heating

Interesting stuff. We'd love nothing more than to have town sewer, town water and town gas. Unfortunately, if you want to live in this neck of the woods the former is out of the question. Most places round here have town water, but gas is luck of the draw. Our last place had propane and it was expen...

Re: Very O/T - A Query About Home Heating

Thanks all. Based on the various replies it looks like it is possible in theory, but totally dependent on a case by case basis. Of course the easiest route would be to learn to love baseboards :-) Our Realtor has sent us details of almost 100 older properties to work through and we will take a ride ...

Very O/T - A Query About Home Heating

We sold our house and moved into a rental with the plan of signing a deal on a new house that would be ready in the next 12-15 months. Unfortunately the deal on the new place fell through because the builder was insisting that we take out a construction loan on the build (and he also upped the price...

Anthony could have quoted the lyrics of a well known Flynn Brothers ditty on the subject of Four Seasons in One Day :-)
