Re: How far?

I need an aim. Not a specifically a destination, but an aim and a reason to ride. Sometimes it gets boring riding the same roads every time you I go out. Parish churches are my "thing" now. What happens after I've done all 225, I don't know, but I will have done them all by this time next...

Lots of the EU 'laws' we have to observe are merely directives. Futhermore claiming that we make all our laws is just plain wrong. The 28 members of the Commission are decided by the governments of each nation which gives us exactly the same influence as Latvia and less than Luxembourg. We do not de...

Re: Electric cars

My motoring profile is mostly short local journeys and infrequent long journeys. For the long journeys I want a comfortable quiet and economical car which I have, a SEAT Ateca with a 1.4 litre petrol engine. If I had space in my drive I would also have an electric vehicle for the frequent short jour...

Re: Cheap word processing software

I used to use Open Office, then Libre Office but since my main device has become an Android tablet with Google Office suite and Google Drive its all become simpler and less hassle. Everything I write immediately becomes accessible on my phone and Chromebook. Its all free too.
