Re: Strange technical question about moving heavy objects

I have a mat and straps that I designed for moving Kitchen appliances into tight spaces - it was part of my job at the time and they was occasionally difficult to manoeuvre into place without damaging adjacent surfaces. Note to self: contact Dragons Den. 8) Tell me more. I am thinking about a new k...

Re: COVID Lockdown - Guidance versus the Law

e.g. that Norfolk Police Official on TV said I should not leave my village which limits me to rides of a few hundred meters. Ian Not the PMs fault if the police invent stuff. There is no distance restriction on taking exercise (in England). PM could create laws that reflect his guidance and provide...

Re: COVID Lockdown - Guidance versus the Law

My main point would be I cannot imagine anybody has got into trouble by sticking to the "Don't drink and drive" exhortation. If anybody wants more detailed guidance, it's available and I fancy plenty of people have got into trouble by misinterpreting it. irc has helpfully posted what I ta...

Re: COVID Lockdown - Guidance versus the Law

From a post on another forum by an English lawyer. There is no restriction in law as to how far you can travel from home for exercise in England. The section making exercise an exception to staying at home states "(c)to take exercise outside— (i)alone, (ii)with— (aa)one or more members of their...

I also have a Spa 130 OLN wheel with a lighter rim and that has gone out of true and broken a spoke twice. But I am 16 s...

Re: Would you take a vaccine against CV? Vote now please!

Jab? In Glasgow, is it the norm? Doesn't everyone use "jab" for injection? I know what people mean when they say jab but until just now never known a Scotsman use it. ( I’ve always assumed you were born in Glasgow but perhaps I’m wrong on that) Every farmer, vet, nurse, doctor I know will...

Re: Want to sell my car in order to cycle

Why own a car if you don't need to or want to. I bike commuted in Glasgow for years - the north side - there are plenty good routes and a few roads I avoided. Parking the bike safely at work is the big thing for me. I had secure parking. If not I suggest parking in a busy place with a massive chain ...

The nurse doing the jab brought my details up on a tablet. Only around 5 minutes in a queue. I arrived a bit...

Re: Would you take a vaccine against CV? Vote now please!

The other day, I listened to a retired GP, who only left his practice about 18 months ago, complaining - nice & politely, GPs being like that - about having to complete a range of training before he could be accepted as part of the covid vaccinator force. His wife, too. She had been a practice ...
