    It's like a lot of other products CT,the British have to change the name of things to suit others,Jiff change to Ciff because the Spanish can't pronounce the letter J, Oil of Olay changed to Ulay (or the other way round) because someone else couldn't pronounce the letter U, Rog

  16. How's your day?

    We don't switch on the central heating so often, preferring the gas fire in the living room, which gets some stick in winter. Mrs Chulla uses a considerable amount of gas for cooking and hot water. Our latest statement from our gas supplier tells us that we will be using £550s worth of gas in the coming year, based on previous bills. So, an average of around ten pounds a week.
  17. Running a Marathon

    Don't think Mrs P is doing the Nottingham one this year but she is doing the Worksop one towards the end of the month £15/£20 entry fee,I think the London one is a lot more than that,Mrs P said she wasn't doing the York one this year because £20 entry fee plus £500 sponsership money,it's all starting to become another rip off Rog
  18. Bobbers Mill Road area

    After all the sand has been excavated the bottom of the pit is usually blue clay,completely waterproof and stable, the only problem,if there is one would be of ground drainage with water being unable to seep through the clay,but with a good drainage/sewerage system in place there should be no problems Rog

    That's so "last week" Dave, modern boilers don't have pilot lights anymore I'm told, besides how much gas would a pilot light burn in a year ? Where's NBL when he's needed !
  24. How's your day?

    Glow Worm had a fantastic reputation some years ago. I knew someone who worked there. The premises are in Belper which is not far from me. However, the company was taken over by Vaillant who, themselves, are highly thought of. All the old names are now owned by someone else. Even Aga isn't Aga anymore! I was told when choosing a multi fuel stove that the Aga models are now made cheaply in China and not to be tempted. Nowt's what it used to be, is it?
  25. How's your day?

    if British Gas serviced it I they'd condemn it New boiler fitted about 5 years ago from British Gas four & half grand they originally wanted to fit it in the middle of a bedroom wall due to air flow! It's in the loft.
