  1. Tan went into hospital on Wednesday for an operation on an aneurysm over her left eye after it was discovered after a MRI scan a little over three weeks ago. The scan was done to find out why the vision in her left eye had deteriorated. We saw a neuro consultant and discussed the vascular option but opted for the surgery option because of the equal risks without have blood thinning drugs for a minimum of 6 years or life. Tan had a 5.5 hour operation but failed to wake up after getting from recovery to the ICU. The family visited Tan until Sunday the 1st December when we said our last goodbyes and the machines were gradually turned off. It is Tan's funeral on Thursday 13th December at Hutcliffe-Wood Crematorium at 15.30 pm. It is family flowers only but donations can be made via B&C Co-op Funeral Directors Suffolk Street Sheffield, or donations Neurocare at the Hallamshire Hospital. Alan

    Electric Advice Please

    Hi Nigel, Some sound advice, 30 ma could kill someone with a weak heart but the industry standard on earth leakage or residual circuit breakers is set at 30 ma as a prevention from death by an electric shock. Ideally Ray needs to sort out his electrics be they 240 ac or 12 volts dc, table lamps need to terminated into suitable plugs and sockets rather than cables going under the floor. For a 12 volt table lamp you need to use a cigar lighter plug and socket or a none standard plug & socket. The testers and neon's suggested are not suitable for dc voltages, as already suggested a good multi meter that can read ac & dc voltages is the best option. Regards Alan

    A Winters Tale

    Hello Jayfire, I quite like the shape of the glass and Tan used to have the odd glass when available, but for me I could never get over the flowery taste when it was first introduced years ago. Regards Alan

    Hello Jayfire, I would go with the San Migel, Peroni, Kronies, maybe a Becks or a Cobra, but I never have Stella, I have always regarded that as a woman's drink. Regards Alan

    Hello

    Hello Pumpmedic welcome to the forum. You will find that although being proficient on the canals is by no means a bonus when first starting on the Broads. I found this 18 years ago when we bought our share in Ranworth Breeze, my 27 years on the canals did not count for much. The wind and tides were something that had to be learnt very quickly. Regards Alan

    Why Is It?

    Hello Ray, On Narrow Boats if they use a diesel heater such as a Webasto, it is a wet system using radiators, some of course use gas boilers to heat the radiators. Regards Alan

    Jabsco Hand Pump Toilet

    Hi Steve, The Jabsco pump base is oblong with rounded corners. I suggest that you check for a name on the toilet bowl or base to determine the manufacturer, failing that I would call in at Brian Wards and get Nick or Tanya's opinion on what your toilet is, remember asking for the NBN discount. Maybe if you post a picture of the toilet and the square base one of the members may know what it is. Regards Alan
