  1. About six years ago I was lucky enough to get on the government worm front heating program at the time I had a multi fuel wood/coal stove running five radiators and it worked fine but as I was having problems with my joints I decided to change over to oil heating. I love it just have it serviced once a year cost about £100 and as oil is not to expensive at the present time I have a 1200 ltr tank I just have 500ltrs put in when it gets down to about half full and that is it best thing I ever did getting fitted. They do say that mains gas is best but if that is not an option I say go for the oil option you will not regret it.
  2. Something that made me think they banned hand guns some years ago to stop this sort of thing from going on in many ways I think this was a bad idea ok it is not good that people was shooting one another but it was and is so much harder to get your hands on a hand gun but it is really simple to get hold a knife so any plonker can get there hands on one something that was never going to happen with guns just a thought.
  3. Its not the fairies that vote in the people who make laws that says that any nutter can buy a fully automatic gun it is these people who got shot I'm sorry but if they have not got the gumption to do something about it that is there fault.
  4. I have to say that I have little sympathy for for the American people who got shot I have every sympathy for all of the other people from all around the world who got mixed up in it . If the American people are so stupid as to let any Tom **** or Harry buy these automatic guns then they cannot complain when some nutter gets hold of one and dose something like this as I have said before I have no problem with people having hand guns hunting rifles and shot guns but full automatics is madness.
  5. Just some thoughts about the road tax thing a 2005 one could be say £270 a year but a later one could £500 so we are talking about £200 over a year if you consider a newer car/truck should have less miles less wear and less rust add to the fact that its depreciating in value is the extra £200+ a year worth worrying about in the long run. If I had the space I would go for a nice tax free and rust free pree 1970 American four wheel drive pickup truck V8 running on LPG last for ever as long as you look after it they have proper thick steel chassis not like the tin foil they use on land rovers. :good:
  6. Whenever I have said anything about the Americans being allowed to have ARs and AK47s I have always been told by people on here that they can have them but only the semi automatic version well listening to the videos on this shooting the guy had a fully automatic gun I get the idea of letting people have hand guns hunting rifles and shot guns but why would anyone want an AR if they are restricted to semi automatic mode would not a good hunting rifle be a much better option good for hunting but you could also shoot the bad guys even even with a good old winchester.
  7. I have to say I do like a bit of bling be it chrome or ss I also have to say I hate the modern plastic bumpers on cars give me some nice shiny chrome ones any day.
  8. and it depends how thick the chrome is I got some new pushbike handlebars a few years ago and after one year on the bike I could see rust coming as the chrome was so thin it is worth paying the extra as long as you make shore that the chrome is going to be thick.
  9. Perhaps they do but it was made many years ago when the American mafia was running Cuba
  10. All a bit of a joke really perhaps if the Americans would move there people out of Guantanamo Bay a place that they have no rite to be I tend to think that if the Cubans are doing something it is only doing the same as the Americans do to them.
  11. Nothing wrong with Garmin sat navs I have had one for a long time works fine and a screen that is big enough to see as for the smart phone geek not everyone has one needs one wants one I have a mobile phone and it is what it says on the box a phone I can send a tex if I need to but mostly I do not need to. :yes:
  12. That is a lovely bike is it steel frame or alloy I do not go much on that I forget what the correct term is the long arm holding the handlbars on should be worth good money though I would have thought.
  13. I see on the news that Dyson is bringing out an electric car in two or three years time he has got a big team of people working on it they say that it will vacuum all of the dirt off the road as you drive along. :whistling:
  14. The main problem that I can see with it is if it tips on its side or is pushed over it would be helpless :yes:
  15. You do surprise me I was under the impression that it was like linux and I have used that for ten years and never needed Antivirus I always thought that was why people pay stupid money for there overpriced computers.
  16. Just what the rich folks need to take the kids to school in or god forbid drive it across a field when tacking the kids to there pony riding lessons give me a nice four wheel drive pickup any day.
  17. I have used Linux on my computers for years much like mac it is a closed program so unlike microsoft people cannot get in to the program to put bugs in I also have a chrome book much the same no Antivirus required.
  18. Land rovers only last a long time because everything including the chassis can be bought new to replace the old stuff so it is not really fair to compare them with other cars/trucks as apart from US old Jeeps they are the only ones that everything can be changed for new parts.
  19. They look very much like a clone of a Land Rover I remember the old Austin Champ that the army has a few of them ugly things I cannot comment about how they drive or if they was any good or not just to say I like the look of the Gypsy but hate the look of the Champ.
  20. As usual I do not suppose hardly anyone bothered to actually look at the video just the first picture I put it up because I think it is informative and funny I love the idea that they can go out and find 50 old trucks just parked up in fields for years and buy them and get them going. in this country if a truck or car is left out like that it would mostly be a pile of rust all that we seem to get is old land rovers not much fun in that they look like a tin box on wheels.
  21. I have to admit I am a big fan of old American pickup Trucks and looking on youtube a while ago I came across this his videos are good and sometimes funny with his girlfriend in here huge pickup and there little dog who cannot wait for a new truck to arrive so that she can get in it and check it out for rats and mice its well worth a look if you like old trucks.
  22. This is a sore point with me who came up with the idea of making brake pipes out of steel makes no sense to me at one time they was always made of copper that would last for ever then just to save a few pennies they changed over putting peoples life in danger rant over. See if you can get someone to make and fit some nice copper ones last for ever then and should not cost that much.
  23. That is what garden sheds are for well one for junk and the other one or garage is a workshop.
  24. This is supposed to be a free country he can say whatever he wants if people are so stupid that they cannot make up there own mind and have to be lead by the nose by so called celebrity's that is up to them just look at how many people vote conservative now that is strange.
  25. Nice to see someone still using a shed/garage workshop for what it was meant for a man shed for most people today is just a pretend pub with a tv and arm chairs but then I am old we now what a real shed is somewhere to make and mend stuff not laze about drinking while the Mrs is watching soaps on TV.
