Re: log burner

I have 2 wood burners (using for 5 years) in England and 1 (using last winter) here in Spain; to clean the glass doors, I use a damp kitchen tissue, dabbing to the ash to load it then wiping the glass door with the ash. The ash is quite gritty but not hard enough to scratch the glass and would clear...

Re: Britains Going To The Dogs-I'm Staying In Spain !!

Yes Britains Certainly Going To The Dogs!!! We are from Northumberland and it has taken 10 -12 hours to get to / from Postmouth every time. We did this same journey in the early 2000 (house in France) it was about 7 hours max. But for nearly twice the distance, from Santander to Torrox it took more ...

Re: Avocados

A part from being bigger and smoother skin in appearance; the ripening fruits' skin tend to change colour from green to purple-ish. There are variety that don't change colour but the appearance above still apply. I'd try to leave the fruits on the tree as long as possible; you can compare the taste ...

Re: The Beer Diet

From what I read there isnt any less sugar in non alcohol drinks than the alcohol ones. In fact some websites even say the sin alcohol version contain more sugar as there is less amount of sugar had been converted to alcohol. Congratulation for the weight loss but I think perhaps the reason for the ...

Re: BBCiPlayer - picture quality on Smart TV

No I have read your comment and did a little research and perhaps it's happened like you said! In previous post I mentioned you could use samsung mirror app to port the 1080P stream from your laptop/PC to the screen using Edge browser in windows 10, but I saw that markwilding already said that in hi...

Re: Best gardening tool I've ever bought.

I sharpen my own stihl chain and it's quite easy, you need to buy the correct file profile for your chain and it takes less than 10 mins to do both directions. Make sure you sharpen the chain evenly by counting number of strokes per tooth and normally I do 3 strokes. Lild sometime sells a chain saw ...

Re: 125mm waste pipe?

Is this 125 mm is the internal dia of the plastic pipe? It's possible that you may have measured the 110 mm connector OD as I think 125 mm diameter is generally refered to the clay soil pipe.

Re: Am I missing something?

Please note that October - December return isn't "in season" hence cheaper and both time we will be travelling on the Pont-Aven, the flag ship of Brittany Ferry Co, tickets cost is more but the journey time is shorter compared to the economie class.

Re: Am I missing something?

We used Brittany ferry Postmouth-Santander 3 times so far and going to Santander again this October. We are non-resisdent and have been going to CDS twice a year, each time we stay over 2 months so fly and hire a car would be more expensive. By joining the club the ticket is reduced by 30% and this ...
