  1. thanks, i have read about coconut oil, i have also read that boosting omega 3 with fish oil capsules can help so i will try that too.
  2. Does anyone elses lab lose hair from their ear edges, last year mine lost its hair during the winter from both tips, during the summer they cleared up and she was fine, this winter it happened again on both tips but also the back edges, these have no regrown but she has now lost the hair on both the front edges. In herself she is fine, and it does not bother her, no ear scratching or rubbing at all, she just looks a bit odd until it regrows. as its not bothering her we have not had a vet look at her as it does clear up on its own, we put it down to an alergy of some sort, or possibly ear edge hyperkeratosis as they do scab over before the hair regrows.
  3. thanks, just ordered 5 crimps of the bay, i do have a decent ratchet crimp tool, joint will be inside shower case.
  4. i need to change our shower as its started leaking, the one we have found has the electric connecton on the oposite side so the cable is too short to reach. is it acceptable to use a 60 amp choc block and extend them, i plan on covering the connection with self amalgamating tape to make it waterproof.
  5. wow, i bet its a relief that you found out the cause, but also gutted its cost so much.
  6. can you fit isolation valves in the pipework at various points to lock off sections and see if the leak stops.
  7. I am sure the op meant would fail over time, we have been in our house 14 years and the windows were fairly new then. So far we have had to replace one large window, south facing funnily enough and now have two smaller windows gone so i am sure over the next few years we will be replacing a few more.
  8. I'll try drilling the bitumin spacer first, got nothing to lose so worth a try. I wonder if its possible to replace the desiccant inside the frame at all.
  9. i think the idea is that there is no vacuum and the valves allow air in and out so stops the mist build up, any way i think i will replace with new windows anyway.
  10. Two of our windows have gone misty due to the seal going, looking online i found a website that repairs the windows by drilling two small holes in the glass and fitting a valve of some sort when the windows have dried out, i have found a ebay site selling the kits but has anyone tried them? its £35 and should repair four windows. i would think the kit is about half the cost of new glass for the two windows i need doing.
  11. i think i have got it down to 4, in order of preference https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-ideapad-330s-15-6-intel-core-i3-laptop-1-tb-hdd-blue-10180838-pdt.html https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/dell-inspiron-15-5000-15-6-intel-core-i3-laptop-1-tb-hdd-silver-10182139-pdt.html https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-ideapad-330s-14-intel-core-i5-laptop-128-gb-ssd-blue-10180844-pdt.html?store=2849&&istCompanyId=bec25c7e-cbcd-460d-81d5-a25372d2e3d7&istItemId=-xwplxtxlrq&istBid=t&srcid=198&cmpid=ppc~gg~1011 (PLA) Windows Laptops and Convertibles - Adaptive~1011 (PLA) Windows Laptops And Convertibles ad group~Exact&mctag=gg_goog_7904&kwid=GOOGLE&device=c&ds_kids=92700042082096833&tgtid=1011 (PLA) Windows Laptops and Convertibles - Adaptive&&gclid=CjwKCAjw-OHkBRBkEiwAoOZql8WHIoAIKr90dUkfN-tUoSOuGEJqVHfxYYGmomRTpv2V5FvuGxW9DxoCxugQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-14-ce0504sa-14-intel-core-i3-laptop-128-gb-ssd-silver-10180946-pdt.html I like the first lenovo the best, but the other one does have a faster cpu but a trade off in screen size.
  12. thanks, i have just spent the last two hours looking at laptops and still not decided!!!
  13. very tempted by the lenovo you linked, the dell i was looking at has mixed reviews on amazon.
  14. is this one any good, only 4gig ram but i could upgrade later, £500 is out of budget. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Inspiron-Intel®-Portable-Graphics/dp/B07D79K82P just googled and found this one, is this the same spec but cheaper? https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/dell-inspiron-15-5000-15-6-intel-pentium-gold-laptop-1-tb-hdd-black-10169754-pdt.html
  15. I would think the extra ram would help though.
