Re: Recommend me a head torch

You can have your cake and eat it.
AA battery accepting devices, fueled by batteries charged by your dynamo hub.
With the option to purchase AA disposables if everything goes wrong, or if you have a life beyond cycling.

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

I think it may be disingenuous to suggest only Trump supporters are affected. I dont think that it would be disingenuous to say such a thing, those who would say it would really believe it because their reading matter would have conditioned them to see Trump supporters in that way. Back at the begi...

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

Perhaps one's gut feeling for the truth is just as or maybe even more reliable?))

Exactly what most Trump supporters thought.

Lay the groundwork right and people have already decided what happened and who is to blame before it even occurs.

Nothing to stop anybody from covering or removing the plates as soon as they leave the school gates.

Re: R values of mats

So seems like the only virtue they have is their weight? or lack of?

Yes, that is what we are paying the premium for, low weight and small volume.

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

One difference is that the Russians still refuse to accept responsibility. That is because they didnt do it. The Americans clearly did shoot down the Iranian aircraft. They even gave the guy who did it a medal. Rogers was awarded the Legion of Merit "for exceptionally meritorious conduct in th...

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

Oh dear the Grauniad is going downhill It reports about a Syrian family who like the rain in their Welsh village. What village? The article proper says they live in Narberth, *a small market town* Can a place be a village AND a town? Or does the Grauniad make mistakes? At least I dont doubt the tru...

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

I think it most likely that troops commanded by Igor Girkin shot it down believing it to be an enemy aircraft. It is all the rest of the stuff that has been thrown in on top of that which I am much more dubious about. They were involved in ongoing military actions against Ukranian military aircraft ...

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

the only reason why we don't fully know what happened that day is because of the unacceptable obstructive behaviour of the Pro Russian rebel groups. It was in the middle of their territory, when Putin offered to send observers to watch our and the US elections to check for free and fairness, they w...

Re: cheap foot print material

There are perfectly good reasons for always using a footprint with your tent compared to buying a tent with a heavier duty groundsheet. You can replace the scuffed, worn or holed footprint anytime you want, with no hassle and less expense ( free with old shower curtains) than replacing a groundsheet...

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

But it is right that the truth come out though and blame be laid at the guilty party's door.
Why would anyone not wish that to be the case ??

Because the Guardian has a very, very strong anti-Russia agenda that it pushes at every possible chance.

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

That is not the case. They prevented access by international air accident investigators for a week. And were obstructive far longer. And they prevented by means of arms access by the International Peace Keeping corp led by a neutral Swiss who also wanted to secure the site. It was a combat zone, th...

Re: It is earnestly to be hoped - we love the Guardian!

I read a good deal about the incident after it happened. It horrified me. I saw footage of those armed men preventing access to the crash site. And I came to the conclusion that It was shot down by a missle. All by my little unimaginive self!! You only have access to the information that is supplie...
