3. The establishment finally win and overturn the referendum result,(while denying they have done it)  thus killing any pretence of democracy in the UK, permanently.

I cannot understand why people think that the issue of EU membership will go away if, for whatever reason, it doesn't happen.  This shows ignorance on the part of those who want a second vote on the subject, they seem to think that everyone who wants/wanted out will simply go quietly in to the night?

General Car Chat / Astra H Cambelt
« on: 30 November 2018, 09:03:42 »
Mrs G has had her astra serviced recently and she always panics when she sees an advisory let alone a 'recommended' or 'urgent' item on the worksheet.  In short she is a garage owner's dream.

The latest thing to pop up is the cambelt and so of course she is breaking my balls about it.  At 122k it sounds about right that it is due.  Sigh.  Anyone with experience of it fancy doing it for me? ;D

Funny ypu should mention that, as i have first hand experience from when i was a homeowner in the suburbs of Paris.

1950s house with 0.75mm thick copper sheathed with fabric. No plastic or rubber insulation.  The disco lights in the main house and sparks flying from the fuse box in the basement made me curious so i broke in to a wall to investigate.  It took a lot to sort the whole house out.  Thing is that for months i was running a couple of PCs upstairs without issue but it was the kettle in the kitchen downstairs  on the same linear curcuit (no ring) that did it.  Squeaky bum moment for sure.

Does the french lecky give toast a whiff of garlic and a penchant for horsemeat?

.. an old film called Sapphire on Talking Pictures, made in 1959 and they just wouldn,t  get away now with the absolute racism that pervades through the whole dialogue of the film. Even makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. :o
That's what I thought when I watch Donovan's reef a few years ago.  I remember thinking no wonder that men of generations passed were so over the top macho, mysoginistic and racist with such stereotypes on the big screen acting as role models.

If we do get a deal, what am I going to do with my shed full of beans?

Judging the level of intellect of some MPs, there is a case for being able to negociate a trade deal with it.

Heating?!!   Eee by gum!  It's only November.  The heating is only on for a few weeks every winter when it gets proper cold.  Positive outside temperatures are not cold in the house.
Ask Rog about stone built houses. Ours is only stone at the front and is still cold in July.

New build.  Lots of insulation to the point it is was unbareable this past summer and the fridge freezer was working it's whatsits off trying to keep cool.  If we have anouther summer like that I may need to fit external window shutters.

An alternative solution to your steaming problem could be a heated mirror, often incorporating a cabinet behind it as a bonus storage space.
No link for you, but a quick look on ebay might help.

Ron.

I would love one but as Dave says the sparky work involed would likely be significant and I am a tight Yorkshireman at heart.

It's on the list for the mansion house in the US ;)

FTFY. :y

I find that can make the situation worse, especially if it is cold outside.

Seeing as there are some exitable responses on the other electric advice thread I thought I would throw my question in to the hat for your amusement/vitriol/candour :D

I have an in-line ceiling extractor fan wired in to the bathroom.  It's a 21/33W 100mm fan wired up in timer mode on a 3 pole throw switch.  The house is 5 years old so I assume the sparky that installed the house electrics did so to Part P.

I would like to add a second fan because I like extremely hot showers followed by the Army tradition of wet-shaving which requires the use of a mirror.  This is often steamed up so I am exploring the addition of a second additional fan.  I will obviously need a vent on the door to allow the extra air in to replace that which is sucked out but my question is this.  Can I simply wire it in in parallel, i.e. similar to a spur wiring on a socket?  I will acquire an identical fan and wire it the same but not sure on the legalities of this.
