Once a year.... :o :o

I hope she wore some sort of Elizabethan 'fanny fresh' under those long skirts with no ventilation. ::)


Trust you Opti! :o :o ;D ;D ;)

In those days everyone smelt, and to us now would smell very badly!  With our Queen Bess though it was her breath in her later life that apparently could knock people off their feet.  That was due to her very rotten teeth due to eating lots of sugar laden foods and treats, as the very wealthy did as they could afford those niceties! :D :D

General Discussion Area / Re: Loft Insulation
« on: Today at 11:04:59 »
With temperatures due to hit 35C again this week, I've been wondering about my loft insulation as you do. Currently there is (at best) one inch thick fibre-glass 'wool' roll laid between the floor rafters, and then chipboard loft flooring over the top. Wool roll is at least 50 years old, and I put most of the flooring down 20 years ago. I haven't measured them yet, but I suspect the rafters are probably 2 inches tall. House is a 1960's 3 bed semi, brick & breezeblock construction with cavity walls and plasterboard ceilings.

Plan A was to lift all the chipboard, rip out the existing wool, and replace it (yes I know it's glass and nasty on your hands so use a face mask and marigolds when handling it.) Then I saw this picture on the web :

https://www.bradfords.co.uk/xtratherm-xt-pr-rigid-pir-insulation-board-2400-x-1200-x-25mm?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI95eL-e-2-QIVN4xoCR1vpw0-EAYYByABEgKD7PD_BwE

I have been warned off insulating between the 'tops' of the A frames in the loft, or boxing in the eaves because of ventilation and condensation issues. But that picture appears to show exactly what I was told not to do.

Has thinking changed? Or am I 'safe' to put 2 inches of wool between the floor rafters, and another 2 inches of wool between the roof rafters (and cover it with a thin layer of summut (hardboard?) to keep it in place)? I'll probably use wool rather than hard sheet insulation unless there is a really good reason not to.

Also, can/should I stuff a bit of wool down the top of the cavity wall - say 4 inches worth? I know you can get to the cavity because I've stuffed ethernet and aerial wires down it in the past.

And that is what I understand after watching many TV programmes warning against doing anything but placing the insulation, whatever you use, between just the floor joists, never in the areas you describe as it stops ventilation and promotes damp issues.  In fact apparently many people who had foam plastered in between the roof beams are now having to rip it all out because of the damp issues and mortgage providers refusing loans on properties with such insulation.

No doubt the builders on here, like Dave, will give more professional advice ;)

Is that her true age? Would have thought she was nearer 80.
Sorry, Mick, 79.


Yes I thought she was at least 10 years older than me, remember her quite well from my youth.

10 years older than you......and 10 years younger than the scouser. :)
I'm the same age as Mick. And Lizzie  ;D

Yes, in the best year of the new Elizabethan age ever ;D  ;)

I reckon you were around during the first ginger Elizabethan age. ::) ::) ;)

Funny you should say that Opti, but from an early age I have felt a great affinity towards that period in history.  Very strangely I have had two ‘experiences’ in original Elizabethan houses when…..I can explain in no other way……a supernatural, other dimension, ‘event’.  One was so strong and made me feel sick, I had to leave the property very quickly, with my mother who also experienced what I had at the same time!  So, who knows…….perhaps I was around in that great Elizabethan age! ;D ;)

Yes, I know, the non-believers and those sceptical of such things will not understand it, but I can only recount what happened.  Not the only ‘event’ I have experienced in my life either :o :o :o

I don't believe she was a virgin all of her life. :)

Indeed, we know that she had Lord Robert Dudley as her main lover, and she spent much time with him, but there is no actual proof any sexual activity transpired between them. But there is no proof it did not! ;)

I reckon she was well known for loose knicker elastic. >:D 8)

It is doubtful that she, like most woman up until the 19th century, wore any knickers, nor drawers ;D ;)

Good Queen Bess went commando?  :o

Oh yes, like all women did.  With floor skipping dresses they thought their was no need for anything like knickers, as they would get in the way of relieving themselves quiet apart from being unnecessary with no fear of skirts being lifted by accident! Instead they wore a plain white shift garment that was an underdress next to their body, which was washed daily, unlike themselves.  Even the Queen, and that level of society, would wash fully only once per year, at most!! :o :o  Yuck!! :o ;)

Be what you want to be….


Yes indeed DG :y :y

As I have said so many times on this Forum, and in real life, why bother about something that does not affect you personally but gives those within the “Diverse” bracket a freedom to be who they are and not having to conform to what others believe is ‘normal’.

Live and let live! :D ;)

Absolutely disgusting, I'm ever so offended 😂😂
World has definitely gone mad ,glad I'm sane enough to laugh at all the boll ocks that's reported day in day out.

Yes, and at a time of great political international tension with the threat of World War, dramatically high energy bills, food shortages, economic recession, domestic political instability and young children being constantly murdered, etc, etc. :o

I am so pleased the complainants have nothing else to complain about but a stupid “work of art”! ::) >:(

never ceases to amaze me how inventive mankind can be when it come to dreaming up ways to kill fellow humans.

Yes, and as my favourite philospher Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) rightly summed up:

"Hereby it is manifest , that during the time men live without common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in a condition which is called Warre; and such a warre, as is of every man, against every man.  For WARRE , consisteth not in Battell onely, or the act of fighting; but in a tract of time, wherein the Will to contend by Battell is sufficiently known: and therefore the notion of Time, is to be considered in the nature of Warre; as it is in the nature of Weather. For as the nature of Foul weather , lyeth not in a showre or two of rain; but in an an inclination thereto of many dayes together: So the nature of War, consisteth not in actual fighting: but in the known disposition thereto, during all the time there is no assurance to the contrary.  All other time is PEACE."

Hobbes, T. Leviathan pp. 185, 186 Penguin (1651)

It is a warning from history that spells out  mankind cannot work together in it's interests but will continually find ways to go to war and kill. There can be no end to it, and even once a particular revenge is achieved, another need to go to war will ensue ( :'(

Oh - and - The "Miracle on the Hudson" did show it is possible to land a modern airliner (ok it was an A320 not a Boeing) on water and keep the aircraft basically in one piece. That airframe is now in a museum in Charlotte North Carolina.

If the plane basically "lands" in one piece on water, in the middle of the Indian ocean, then it'll sink in one piece and finding more than a few fragments that break off during the landing
will be verging on impossible. Sure some bits will break off during the landing, but then again, some bits have been found in Madagascar and the East coast of Africa.

You mean like these in this report:
https://edition.cnn.com/2017/03/08/asia/mh370-debris-found/index.html

I have been particulary interested in the wing flap that avaition experts have identified as coming from the MH370 flight, and was apparently in the down, for landing, position as it is damaged along its trailing edge as though in fast contact with the sea that would not habe been possible if it had been in the normal cruising flight position.

Yep, she is one mad, stupid and annoying, highly dangerously mouthed bitch! >:(

As I have said many times before, why worry about these cases? Does it really affect you that badly? ::)

There is far more to really worry about currently, especially now the mad cow from the USA has upset the Chinese, and Russians! ::) ::) >:(

I am just thankful for my relatively simple life and the hope I can continue to pay my bills, let alone keeping the Omega going  :D ;)
