Re: Good Curry Houses

The Khama Khazana in Kampala in Uganda is incredible, I have a recipe somewhere written down as I had the same meal twice a week for 12 weeks :oops: The Jalsagor in Stamford is also great, really fresh food and good prices. Our local in Market Deeping the Taj Mahal is great food but a bit crampt. I ...

Re: Anti-semitism

I read about a Jewish paper.. Where did you read it, what was the source? I think it was this one.... https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/don-t-vote-for-corbyn-pleads-jewish-chronicle-lj3pt9gmm If not it was similar, an overview of what was apparently written in the paper.

Re: Anti-semitism

There’s definitely some history there as I’m surprised how many people are being involved in it all.

It was nice not reading the papers for a few weeks but boredom took me to it. I think it’s nicer to not no in a lot of cases.

Anti-semitism

Has this always been an issue but where I live I’ve been shielded from it? Is there a particular reason this appears to be more newsworthy lately ? I read about a Jewish paper where they mentioned they were afraid if Corbyn got in power it would not be safe for Jews. That is quite a statement to mak...

Re: Bristol bans diesels

I have no idea if this is accurate but a particularly clever electrician made a point that LI batteries are a lot harder and energy intensive to recycle compared to lead acid as well.

I think we will need to see 10 year old models and what happens with them first, lots to figure out yet.

My understanding that Tesla’s figures showed very little in the way of battery degradation ? In the single digits on cars with hundred of thousands of miles on.

Re: Bristol bans diesels

If doing something about it just moves pollution to other UK inhabitants, then..... yes. If they can do something about it without moving pollution elsewhere - great. We use hardly any coal now with more than half our electricity being zero emission, nearly all our fossil powered electricity comes ...

Re: Bristol bans diesels

So what else have they done locally to reduce pollution ? Incentivised clean public transport or delivery vehicles ? Developed green areas ? I like Bristol, the marine side is great for a day out but this puts me off. Why impact those who have the least in the first place. Dave! I did say the effor...

Re: Your fleet running reports

The TT passed but had an advisory on headlights, I sanded and polished them by hand a year ago but it faded quite quickly. A local place polished them to like brand new for £20 each so that will do for a while.

I think it’s around 158,000 miles now, I should treat it.

Re: UK decent rental cars experience

Nope, we had a few like for like hire cars when our ML was in getting work done. It was Enterprise luxury or something and there was a problem with each of them. They were based in a Cambridge. FFRR, we couldn’t find a parking space in Cambridge for this and we ended up getting a space and then a ta...

So is this the fastest you can get from idle to the redline ?

Do we win a medal if we are quickest ?

A really big medal ?

Re: Rev’s 1KRPM to the limiter in 3rd Fred

I can’t do it in either of my correctly engines cars due to auto gearbox failure :(

The Land Rover, well no-one has enough time for that.

The TT, possibly but it needs 2500rpm to make any kind of headway. Man was not meant to meddle etc etc

In a mini Toyota people carrier we travel to and from work each day with a local driver. I’ve had to say the following.... “Stop crashing into TukTuks on purpose” “Stop pushing motorbikes off the road” “You need to stop crashing” So we got a new driver as my spidey sense couldn’t keep up with his fu...

Re: Electrical oddness.

My parents Mower has an inbuilt RCD of some sort so only works on the new extension. Not the one from the 1970s he had before where the insulation is probably half dead. So your problem looks likely to be from the extension in some way. The tumble dryer won’t have an RCD as it’s unlikely you will c...
