  1. Independence - Updates | Maintenance & Care

    I wasn't actually complaining, although I'd like it to be free as part my annual mooring fee. This time of the year with a hot water immersion heater, a few tube heaters set above the frost level, the fridges plus battery charger +++. it is easy to really chomp into the electricity. even the electrical consumption of an Erbespatcher can be 85w. In a marina there is a fairly extensive infrastructire investment after they have bought the electricity from the "utility supplier", posts, meters, DP's, plus of course much cable that all has to be maintained.

    I think we are paying 21p/KWH in Brundall
  3. National Park? Does It Matter?

    Try a low window first if you feel tempted to try!
  4. National Park? Does It Matter?

    I decided to look to the National Park webpage for some clarity. Yes, the Broads is indeed named as being one the National Parks, so question closed I thought, but a little deeper delve to the webpage that details when the areas were designated as National Parks, states that: "1989 The Broads given equivalent status to a National Park" So clear as mud.
  5. National Park? Does It Matter?

    I thread is kept alive by people posting, when all interest is lost the postings stop, therefore logic would suggest that whilst there are still postings there is still interest. Those who had heard it all before can simply ignore the threads where "they have seen it all before" and they are certainly under no obligation to contribute further.

    I also wanted to know "what it was all about and does it matter". I too was not aware that the subject had already been discussed before and would like to thank those that took the time and trouble to reply to my questions rather than refer me to earlier threads. I would add that before my postings I had done some research before making the comment "half of BA fundings was from a National Park grant"; this came from BA's Annual Accounts 2016/2017, Actual General & Navigation Income & Expenditure, Appendix 1. Quote" National Park Grant £3,243,802"

    Thanks, am reading about "the Sandford Principle"
  8. National Park? Does It Matter?

    I'm not buying and I'm not selling, having been overseas for some 20+ years, I just don't understand what the issue is . What is so wrong with the broads being referred to as a national park? Please can someone give me a 5 line answer?

    Let's not forget that roughly half of BA's total annual income is a National Park Grant

    What a lovely gift: something that has been made, not bought.

    Don't try to launder money in a washing machine: it will get lost in that secret compartment that loses socks

    Buying the car was quite easy and their insurance was cheaper (well for the first year anyway), hard part was swerving their other offers : fixed price service contract, GAP insurance, key loss insurance, paintwork protect, alloy wheel insurance etc.

    But that would make you eligible to become a politician?

    I think there is a law now about a maximum value for any cash transaction, which I recall is the same value of cash that you are allowed to bring into the UK undeclared.
