Re: Mechanically minded people please take pity!

Cool -- er, that's pretty much what he was suggesting for and it means the things that he suggested were wrong should be found in the places he said. Good luck with it!

Re: Mechanically minded people please take pity!

My other half is a car geek... he's asking a few extra questions... He wants to know what series it is -- Mark 3 or 4 and which engine -- 1.8, 2L, 8 valve, 16 valve or turbo (or flavours thereof). Should be on the top of the engine or in the V5 document, apparently... or in insurance details. Top of...

Re: More id help- wild flowers/ weeds ??

The second one I'm 99% certain that it's a willowherb... can't really tell from the picture, but because it looks like it has square stems, possibly epilobium tetragonum (square stemmed willowherb). Mind, willowherbs can hybridise and it's kinda hard to tell without actually having the plant to hand...

Re: The Daily Mail song.

Ah, Scrap, you've discovered Chap Hop... (no seriously -- there's a magazine called "The Chap" and everything). It's a movement that is half taking the mick and half serious about being a gentleman/lady, having manners, tea drinking, and the use of correct grammar and apostrophes (for example). Usua...

Re: trick or treat

I was lucky -- I'm a wee bit of a mongrel (half English, half American) thanks to my dad being USAF and marrying a local lass. Every halloween, we'd go to Lakenheath AFB (where my dad was stationed... we lived off base) and go to the houses there. Almost every house was up for it, and not only that,...

Re: Thyroid problems

Your thyroid essentially regulates your metabolism and such -- bearing in mind that not all the symptom boxes need be checked for you to have the problem (there's over 40 associated symptoms, depending on age and gender!). I had a problem with my thyroid a few years ago; it wasn't pleasant. Essentia...

Re: what to do with russets???

We used to have this problem. We used to wrap each one in individually newspaper and then box 'em in the cellar or in the utility room (cool dark place). Check on them occasionally to make sure none have gone bad -- ours used to keep until Feb/March like this, so even in a glut it wasn't a problem. ...

Re: How Do You Like Your Meat?

I have been known to eat lumps of raw steak. I mean raw (my dad used to give me it as a kid, and well, grew up doing it). Hence when my steak is cooked, I like it fairly raw and bloody. Lamb & duck... rare, rare, rare! And sushi... pass me that sashimi! Especially tuna... I get quite disappointed if...

Forage cheesecake

Well, ok, in fairness, I didn't forage the cheese. Or the base. But that would be grim. What I did forage, however, were the fruits for a coulis/syrup to go on the top. It's setting in my fridge right now, and I'm barely controlling the urge to go into the fridge and eat the thing right now. It's a ...

Wotcha!

I'm a gal living with her fella up in Huddersfield, but that's a fairly recent thing, so I'm still getting to know what's about me here. I'm a lecturer in graphic design & multimedia, but I just finished doing a course in biodiversity & conservation and ultimately I'd love to become an ecologist as ...

Re: "Food: What goes in our basket?" on Channel 4

I caught 15 minutes of that tripe. I couldn't bear it. I also shouted at the TV quite a bit. Came home from work today. The TV is in bits on the living room floor, with the OH carefully tinkering and removing dead parts. Apparently, a resistor in the power board had a catastrophic failure of some de...
