Re: Is the coalition committing treason?

Not a subject I am particularly knowledgable of, but I do believe that within the next decade it won't be about big ships with missle loaded jets....It'll be about teenage "geniuses" on laptops with the ability to control anything from anywhere!!

Re: Log burner/Stove Fitter

Usually freestanding are more efficient because of size of heatable surface area exposed to air, I have been informed. This was my understanding too, however (i'm told) if it's going into a fireplace wherby the heatable surface area is the very close to (almost touching) the surrounding fireplace t...

Log burner/Stove Fitter

Hi Guys, It's been a LONG time since myself or Mrs A have been actively posting, so hola! I am installing a log burner into a current open fireplace.
