  1. I'm on my second Motorola G, and I have been very pleased with them.
  2. I'd imagined this was a reference to President Bill that ladies of the night asked if you would like a Monica.
  3. If you drive really hard you can sometimes get an unpleasant smell.
  4. Mine is like this. I remember from the time BL ignition switches were a bit clunky, so I don't worry about it.

    As we age, it's less about extending your life, it's more about doing those things you really want to do in the life you are lucky enough to have left. So good luck to him.

    One of the good guys. If he does have to go, let it be relaxed and painless.
  7. A lady once said to me that any girl who says to you size isn't important is just being tactful.
  8. I found the webinar interesting and balanced, and in particular encouraging that these important influencers have a positive yet cautious view of the future. I don't think it told me very much I didn't know, except about how having shedloads of government cash available across the world made it possible for vaccines to be deveoped at 5 or 10 times the normal speed. Where various countries got things right on isolation, closing borders etc and we were indecesive and not strong enough, we got the vaccine thing right.
  9. Thanks for mentioning this. I will be watching it on YouTube
  10. Food for thought from the Zoe man Tim (not Phil) Spector and his colleagues. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.11.27.20239087v1
  11. I don't know if this helps. https://historicengland.org.uk/images-books/publications/listed-buildings-and-curtilage-advice-note-10/ It apears that the decision on what is curtilage is down to the local planning department. I suspect that once it has been decided it might be difficult to get it changed. In difficult planning situations my experience has been that you need to: 1) consult the planning department to see if they are reasonably supportive - including their heritage specialist. If you have an informal contact that can help. 2) get your local councillor(s) on
  12. Can you get Private Eye interested? Instances where politicians and public servants underperform are their meat and drink. Their medical correspondent M.D. (aka Dr Phil Hammond) believes in Vitamin D and has a very good column.
  13. It's not really related to heat pumps and ufh, but I found a modern thermostat Honeywell CM900 with a solid state temperature sensor and a P&I control scheme made a significant improvement to my heating system. Its predecessor was a bimetallic strip thermostat with a 3 or 4 degree dead band and a simple on-off control scheme, and the time lags in the system added significant overshoots and undershoots to the dead band, so you really noticed the high and low points in the temperature cycles.
