    Re: Fun hobbies

    Knitting is not inexpensive; not since the days when most women knitted so wool was much less expensive than it is now and there were several wool shops in every town! It's more of a hobby than an...
  2. Re: Strange animal behaviour- walking in circles.

    Just looking closely at this footage - you can see a fence in the background with a curve, so they appear to be in a circular enclosure. They look like reindeer and there appear to be a lot of them...
  3. Re: Pooling resources and knowledge: An alternative escape. UK.

    Wow Ewan, that looks amazing! From accounts I've read, Ireland is very good for living off the grid. My best wishes to you in your new home.

    All the above applies to Europe as well.

    Throwing money that they don't have to people who couldn't work in 2020; subsidising everyone's energy costs; migrant crisis; food crisis with its roots in...

    Re: Solar energy for beginners

    You were right Pam with your first thought about an outhouse :lol: - the outhouses in old properties here used to be the loo, as we call it! My house was built in the 1870s so that's what the...

    Wow - if I had a large garden and a lot of money I'd get one of these for underground storage:

    Re: Solar energy for beginners

    Many thanks to everyone for your very helpful replies. At best my battery will keep small appliances powered up, I also have a standard lamp that it could probably power and all that will bring down...

    Re: Solar energy for beginners

    Thanks for the link norman. I have an outhouse but it's tiny, the boiler takes up most of it. One option that I was thinking of is underground storage, digging a hole in the garden that is reinforced...

    Solar energy for beginners

    I'm looking for advice - I've just ordered a 600w solar battery and 120v solar panels, that's the limit of what I could afford.

    It'll be great for charging small devices and cut down on the...

    Ah, you're right there. I wrote that from memory, should have checked - there's a lot of comment out there that he's a closet Remainer.

    Re: Turmoil in the UK

    Sunak wasn't a popular choice when Johnson stepped down; for a start he was a Remainer and it was thought that he might try to take us back into the EU. I think that Truss's brief was to be so inept...

    Here's an interesting project - making a solid fuel stove by using a small plastic stool as a mould.

    Agreed - it was a rhetorical question. I think that focusing on Manchester was the easiest way to get the torch and pitchfork-bearing masses against him as so many were emotionally hooked in by the...

    Re: Over-reliance on tech can be deadly

    I always plan a trip with maps and never rely on satnav. A friend was coming up from London; come up the A1, it's the easiest route I told her. The satnav took her up the M1 (often a nightmare road)...

    Apart from a report in his virtual 2020 tour, the last vid that RDH did on Manchester was in 2019; three years ago.

    Re: Weird religious garden finds

    It could be an expression of faith; you have one figure in front of the cross and facing it who seems to be staying put, the ones who have turned away from the cross are falling off the edge.
