  1. Once again thanks for your input, I ended up buying a tmax heavy duty after seeing one working, came today well impressed.
  2. All, thanks for your replies, done a lot more reading online since posting and your comments and recommendations have been useful. I now know that I will need to go via the direct to battery route looking at the tmax and ring900 at present, once again cheers

  5. From the bit I've seen on the news, Oprah and Megan must be in the running for an Oscar nomination this year, best actress and supporting actress
  6. Me and the wife have just done ours with solicitors , both been married before 4 grown up kids between us. My mother who is 90 had to go into care in last year, early onset dementia which has been a nightmare getting things sorted no power of attorney, no access to her due to pandemic then you get a jobsworth on the phone who comes out with, can your mother come into the bank if not there is nothing we can do. Its been a very stressful experience but we've managed to sort it for now. So we also set up financial and medical LPA for the 2 daughters it was an expense but well worth it to us.
  7. After the pit closed in the 90s the slag heap was grassed over and loads of trees planted, I can remember the slopes on one side being planted in the 70s. It is now a public park and there is one area mainly tall hawthorn that magpies and pigeons roost in through the winter, well sheltered from the wind. At times I have seen 50 plus magpies just before dusk.
  8. Full metal jacket, boot camp South Carolina, give way lines at road junctions on left hand side.

  10. We had a shilling slot on our rented telly, mam never got a rebate, they just used to give us the washers back
  11. Made one for grand daughter a couple of months ago from decking off cuts, drilled plenty more holes in the wood after picture was taken. She was over the moon with it, so was my daughter she had seen one in a garden centre half the size for 30 quid, sent me a picture of a hedgehog house on Sunday (any chance when your not busy dad).
  12. They have had wheels in Aldi (Armthorpe, Doncaster) for last couple of weeks about 12 quid, mate

    Cold Frames,

    Netting fixed to timber with a hammer stapler and 10 mms staples I also tacked a thin latte around the bottom, the timber is some I cleaned up and about 2x2, made a single row one with wilko netting with thin pipe and timber from a piece of decking I cut on saw bench

    Cold Frames,

    I rent an allotment from the parish council, the clerk is a proper jobs worth and the rules are enforced with threats of eviction once you have signed tenancy agreement. Only one 6 by 6 ft aluminium greenhouse etc. I managed to get one for free after daughter put an add on face ache for me, then couple of month later was given another so I made it into a 6x2 coldframe and kept the spare glass also made cloches from plastic pipe and scaffold debris net
  15. It's slightly lighter, not pure white just a very slight grey tinge, paired up with a normal woodie
  16. Managed to get some pictures of a white woodie that has taken up residence down the allotment. Photos taken on phone so not brilliant, you can make out the neck bar in the flesh.
  17. 😁 probably, the field had been willows for bio mass for the previous 10 years, that was the first year in with maize, Rhd has devastated the local population with just a few pockets surviving.
  18. Rabbits when combining maize 2011, same field this year 7 shot probably same escaped
  19. Hi all, clutch pedal went spongy and gear changes a bit clunky, checked clutch fluid it had dropped but still some in so topped up to correct level, no visable leak around master cylinder or slave as far as I can see. Dropped it off yesterday at a local gearbox specialist who as far as I can see just clamped off pipe to slave to check master, then came up with it would need gearbox off and it could be rod coupling to fork in clutch that has worn. They didn't charge for this and said they were waiting for a price for parts, anyway went out today as it still drives ok, pulled onto a main road and struggled to get up to 50 with foot flat down seems like turbo not kicking in. Went home checked round turbo can,t find anything amiss with pipes or see were they had removed anything, don,t know if it's a coincence or another one to sort. Any ideas welcome as booked in next Thursday at an independent landrover workshop.
  20. Al, can I say thank you for all your previous videos, they are a pleasure to watch, especially the dogs doing what they are bred for. My old girl is coming up 13 but still manages a day in the pigeon hide or a few hours in the woods, seeing your two working brings back plenty of good memories of her younger days. Once again thanks.
  21. Only had Labour leaflet, delivered by royal mail
