  1. I hope so. I would like be able to ignore or stop the Speakers Corner. It goes against the original intentions of this forum. It is supposed to be THE friendly forum not one encouraging open warfare. paul
  2. Jolly Roger, Your constant denial of affiliation to National Park status makes me wonder. Why? Living on the edge of the Northumberland National Park , the only people I know, who complain, are land owners and builders who cannot profit, at will, from the NP status. The inability to build car parks at popular stops and view points seems to be the main grouse. paul
  3. I fitted a towel rail 2 years ago it is on its own circuit breaker and the shower curtain covers it when having a shower. The breaker is 1 amp paul
  4. My day today is painting .15mm thread! paul
  5. Have had 3 calls today about our washing machine warranty with regard to hotpoint recall. Hotpoint say ours is not affected, pity because they offering to repair or replace affected machines. paul
  6. Running Windows 10? Are sure it is not just Windows Edge for internet access? As said above by rs2021 that is the easy way to sync apps. Or you can go into your goggle account and find, sync all my devices. BUT I cannot remember how to get there, sorry. paul
  7. If you link your tablet to your phone account, apps from one will be added to the other. All you need is the same google account and password on both.
  8. If you want to stop completely, swipe down from the top of the screen and the track paused will be shown with an X press this and the track and player will close. paul
  9. MM, the main thing with google is disable it's access to photos or you will one day find them sorted into what Mr Google thinks is the correct way!!!!!!!!!!!! Use Samsung Gallery for photos. paul
  10. Hi Malcolm, The one major improvement I have made to Zimbi (according to the boss) is fit an electric heated towel rail in the bathroom. Mind getting a wash and using a nice warm towel early/late season is quite a luxury. Also to my cost she has found it really useful for drying tea towels and the odd garment and if I am not alert leaving it on for those night time visits! It only draws 80 watts so not really expensive to run. paul
  11. What ever you choose get one fitted with an immersion heater in built for the extra cost it is a no brainer. Even if your marina has good showers, on a cold night it is worth it to save leaving a nice warm boat to get really cold after a hot shower. Yes been there done that. paul
  12. One question, what happens to WRC? The last time we were there (and it will be the last time) overnight fees £20 the award winning toilet block needed urgent refurbishment, the shop hardly had anything in and the pub was very expensive basic food. Ten years ago it was a fight to get moored, last time we were there only 5 boats in. That was early September. We used to book 2 nights at a time even had a couple of weeks when the kids were camping. paul
  13. We have just hired one of Herbert Woods apartments on 21/3, to do the end of winter/start of season cleaning etc, on Zimbi. With the weeks booking comes a day boat for 1 day free, not bad for £261. So what are the must do things, after getting under that small obstacle, on the otherside? paul
  14. Hi, we have a waeco it runs with no problems. If you have a battery charger there is no need for a rectifier when hooked up, the charger will take care of that! Thus saving £90 to spend towards a better fridge or one of those enticing drinks fridges. paul
  15. Today in the mail 10 pages dedicated to a bunch of Japan losers! 2 pages dedicated to a 6 times world champion! Of course the world Champion is not a posh boy. This country would rather celebrate second rate posh boys than a winner. paul
