  1. An interesting read, thank you, Peter.
  2. WOW, Queren! They used to make 'em hardy but obviously some of you still exist!
  3. A warm "Welcome Aboard" the good ship NBN, Simon! Would you like to tell us a little more about yourself, please?
  4. Sorry, I just came back to edit this to say that this is a copy from A J P Taylor's English History, 1914 - 1945: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_History_of_England
  5. I'd like to echo all the above posts, she was indeed a treasure.
  6. Now, now, Peter! The correction brigade will be after you for the missing ! Seriously, though, you are going to end up with a serious workshop there. Do you have welding facilities?
  7. Oh Dear, Bannockburn 2, I think........ Always a problem for me as Mum was English from Cheshire and Dad was Scotch from Arbroath.
  8. What an excellent idea, Helen. As some of the above posters may have hinted I would think that the heads would come high on any ladies list!
  9. Unreadable and unacceptable, Alan, in this H&S era. Perhaps similar letters directly to the BA, Jeff, and see the results of such?
  10. It's good to see John Packman getting some plaudits. Fighting such a monolith as Network Rail cannot be an easy task, even for the Broads Authority with legislation on our side.
  11. I think that you'll get a wee bit more in the Spring one, Bill. It's going to be the largest we've ever had!
  12. They never do seem to pay more than lip service to EU rules though, do they? (Our aviation rules follow European JARs)
  13. Only some, Alan? Out in rural West Norfolk we've seen quite a reduction in fly tipping in the last few years.......... I shall have to programme the NCC clearup department into my mobile anytime soon.
  14. It certainly is the problem with mooring a fwd steer bathtub, isn't it? Rod, on Sally B, an Alpha 35 fwd steer, used to open his roof and stand on his seat. He then used his bow thruster paddle with his foot and throttle with his hand... amazing and it worked to the wonder of onlookers!
  15. John & Mary-Jane, Sat/Sun, car, boat or motor home!
  16. It would do that, Alan... If its lift failed when overhead the bridge there wouldn't be a problem anymore!
  17. Great news, thanks, guys. We're thinking of hiring one of NBD's apartments in September and I remember when the Shed was in its prime!
  18. Great idea, David. I just looked at that and saw that they do one for double glazing up to 15mm.
  19. Back to original thread topic and mine's just come in (if I was going to renew it). 12p short of £490..... for a 35ft boat
  20. WOW, Howard gets treats as well as beer, Delilah?
  21. I doubt that you'd complain, Alan, because even paying for the toll, insurance, maintenance (I did a lot myself as you do) and the BIG cost, marina moorings I still had change from £3000.. not a lot but enough for the odd replacement whatsit. Considering we'd get at least 10 weeks a year that's not too bad, really.
  22. Well you might not be suggesting that, Ian, but I'm fairly sure that some might!
  23. I really thought that they were Roman diggings, weren't they, Peter?
