  1. Cumbria isn't right popular with sales reps due to road issues & the recent flooding will not have helped!
  2. Today my DPD driver was having a moan that their delivery drops are to be optimised by their hand held scanner. Meaning that the drops are specified by the computer rather than the driver just doing them to match the time slots. If its as bad as Asprays then its completely illogical, vans going back & forth in and out of the same areas. As he has 100+ drops a day to do it will be interesting to see if it works.
  3. I quite enjoy "Weather for the World " on the BBC news channel around 9.20pm. Explains quite a lot of things.
  4. Occurs to me that WW1 aircraft must be a nightmare finished from the dust point of view. As a flying model aircraft man until about ten years ago, I prefer flying WW1 models. I suppose that adds the vulnerability atmosphere to the model.
  5. Blast from the past (2007)!
  6. When you always look for the lowered kerbs to cross roads!
  7. I would have thought that the manufacturer of the shed would offer some advice?
  8. A life in pictures.
  9. What a life he had despite his parents! Always remember him in "1984" as I had done Animal Farm & 1984 at school. I read 1984 at a very young age and he looked like the photo of the author, on the back of my father's tatty old Penguin paperback!
  10. It's sad & upsetting to older people that grew up with high street shopping but this is not happening as an isolated issue. Recently in Barnsley the town has had its WH Smiths closed leaving the centre without a newsagent. So you will struggle to see a model magazine on the shelves in Barnsley! Price rises are occurring across the board which have not been widely reported but in my employment on a trade counter I have seen it on all products we sell.
  11. Used it yesterday ok but I have paid to go ad free
  12. It is possible to do glass doors on existing bookcases cheaply, if you have a glass merchant that will cut toughened glass to size for you & etch or provide holes for finger pulls. Google sliding glass cabinet door track and the cheapest option is plastic top & bottom double track. Plus a few spotlights and it's an economic start. Ikea stuff is ok but generally have large gaps which lets dust in.
  13. Gonna look amazing when they are all built. 😀
  14. Watched a programme about Pete Burns on C5 today which was interesting. Some interesting points about what fame was in the 80's & now. He claimed he hated being famous but then sought it again in Big Brother.Some clips of him being nasty to Jodie Marsh but really he seemed a hypocrite to me. One of the many celebs to die this year at the age of 57.
  15. I liked seeing a young Elton J on the 1976 Morecambe & Wise show & watched most of West Side Story. I found that fascinating, as I seemed to know a lot of the songs, despite never having seen it and the dancing was so sharp. Paul O'Grady programme on Musicals was very informative, despite throwing everything at a project, stars were miscast into the wrong parts. As my dad said to be recently, it's the big decisions that matter and smaller ones sort themselves out.
